I worked at Oriental Trading Company (Less than a year)
Great communication. The managers were extremely helpful and when I had a question they rushed to help me and provide me with all the info I needed.
The communication was great and everyone was very polite. I was positively surprised since I worked as an independent contractor and I felt like I was at home.
Actually, there is nothing negative to say. It was a pleasant and valuable experience.
