    Pros

    Really smart people, a lot of opportunity for growth, always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new. Brand recognition on your resume.

    Cons

    Bullies thrive and are rewarded, while promotions are given to people taking credit for lower level employees' work. Extreme hours and horrible work-life balance . Management isn't always on the same page. They also make frequent changes to things that can confuse people, especially when communication site-wide is missing. Only care about obtaining results at the expense of their employees safety.

    Pros

    Good part time job. Perfect to have as a second job or if you're a student.

    Cons

    It's just hard physical work sometimes, but what do you expect it's a warehouse.

    Advice to Management

    To be more mindful on regular associates and experience on what it's like to be in our shoes on the day to day basis. Sometimes I feel the managers don't know what we go through as workers. Some of their expectations is unrealistic.

    $14 for part time, benefits, certain connections with people you enjoy talking. Snack and break area and a whiteboard to voice your opinion on something

    Very, extremely overwhelming, PAs that bad mouths another PA, bad working environment and lazy people who don’t want to put work in, lifting heavy and extremely long boxes. Dealing with people with bad attitudes and bad hiring process.

    Advice to Management

    This job is too easy to get. They need to put restrictions on the hiring process and have people who truly care working here
