    I have been working at Americold Logistics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hours are available, pay and incentives if you can achieve them but its up to you, training is thorough, employees focused on their jobs.

    Cons

    Pulling quota is hard to meet. Extremely physical and mental.

    Advice to Management

    Lower the qualifying quota to 50-60% to maintain your employment and achieve just base pay. Keep the 95% for incentives as they are now but there are a lot of good workers whom stay busy, show up for work and try but cant achieve 95% so they either quit early or are released for not qualifying.

    Cons

    management poor they need to get out of the office more and see what happens out on the floor
    human resources very very bad they look to rotate people out for the slightest infracion

    Advice to Management

    try getting out on the floor and really see how it all works out there and the job would work alot more smoothly
