    I have been working at Auto Warehousing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to make a decent wage with great benefits. Just gotta stick it out and get your time in. Experienced management. They've all worked the jobs we do.

    Cons

    Long hours. Hard to make plans. Typical union environment. Sometimes coworkers act like spoiled brats when they don't get their way. I wish some of those old timers could see what it's like in the real world now. Management protects the overagers.

    Advice to Management

    Ask me how I am. Listen more.

    I worked at Auto Warehousing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Steady work and benefits, decent location and union breaks. Pays better than some entry level work I've had. The work itself is pretty easy once you get the hang of it.

    Cons

    The training process was haphazard at best. Sort of a "here you go, ok good luck." sort of process. Leads were patient and helpful but coworkers were not.

    When you're new, don't expect to get your base pay often. Coworkers can be cold and abrasive. Not maliciously I think, just busy and stressed.

    I worked at Auto Warehousing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was close to my home. Just 5 min away. Casual dress.

    Cons

    Horrible management!! Never any appreciation, only constant criticism. All the equipment was always in need of repair nothing ever worked properly. VERY reactive, NOT at all proactive. Always putting out fires instead of fixing the probelms they just patched everything up. Very poor communication and management.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your hard working, dedicated employees. Pay them a decent wage and spend some money on better equipment!! Don't be so cheap. People are only as good as the tools they have to work with.

    I have been working at Auto Warehousing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Union shop so there is a (small) limit to how much they can take advantage of you.
    - The job duties and the work you perform are not bad.
    - Overall a good group of employees.

    Cons

    -The culture and atmosphere emanating from management is toxic.
    -Horrible communication from management.
    -Lots of forced overtime.
    -Impossible to do a good job but very easy to get reprimanded.

    Advice to Management

    Communication needs to be drastically improved it is horrendous. Everyone wants to know about weekend work before Friday night. More information is garnered through rumors than official channels.

    More supportive atmosphere (proper training, forgiveness, gratitude, realistic expectations) and less of one based on nasty emails and punishment.

    Pros

    benefits. some of the people there are cool. they have no dress code. you can have tattoos and colorful hair. thats pretty much it.

    Cons

    Life and work balance does not exist. Management is unorganized and lies a lot. Management is not very friendly. Everyone is treated like if they are replaceable because they are... they use fear to get people to produce more and better their quality. This company doesn't have much to offer besides benefits. No job security, and your nose has to be really brown in order to move up in this company. for the amount of stress this job causes its really not worth the pay.

    Advice to Management

    replace management with friendly happy management. pay employees better and treat them better and make them feel valued.

    Pros

    Fun at times - some good people - OK benefits - give internal workers opportunity to advance.

    Cons

    Terrible management - Senior operations staff is all home grown and only in their jobs due to blind loyalty from the owners. VP of HR is a awful - turns her department over every 1.5 years. If you work in HR stay away

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company or let CFO run it

    Awesome Benefits, friendly place to work with lots of fun activities to get to know the company. They really make you feel like a part of the family! Management does take your thoughts and concerns under consideration to help you out in any way they can.

    Cons

    Very busy- sometimes its hard to get things done as we are growing like crazy!
