    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.

    Pros

    $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

    Cons

    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

    Pros

    Everyone works together, Free snacks once a week, holiday pay
