    I worked at Americold Logistics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The facility was a union shop.
    The company was the largest in their industry in the world.

    Cons

    Management staff turned over like people change their socks.
    The separation between employees and upper management.
    My facility was closed, and when we were let go no severance package offered at all to say thanks for years of service. The type of work was quite physical and often in freezer like temperatures.

    Advice to Management

    All employees at any company are what makes that company succeed, and should be treated with respect.

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money at this place but they force you to work a ton of over time. Your life will not have your family come first!

    This company will own you they don't care for you or your family in the least. They will work you to death trust me!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Give up trying to be a manager because you are very bad at it. I lived it and you need to take your foot off your employee's throats and give them a break!!!!!

    Pros

    You make good money that's about it. You have a union, they don't do much but it's there. They can get you your job back possibly.

    Cons

    You get no days off. Long hours. Horrible turnover rate because nobody stays. None of the managers come to work but make everyone come on their off days.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees better.

    Pros

    Stable Employment if you can endure the long hours in the bitter cold.

    Cons

    A certain supervisor will make your life miserable if you don't worship him. Strange thing is, he's a convicted felon.

    Advice to Management

    Stop having tunnel vision to just the dollars and begin to care about your employess

    Revamp your site managers and supervisors it is desperately needed
