    I worked at Blue Apron full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -easy work -free lunch -co-workers understood each other

    Cons

    -not a lot of room to promote -upper management looks down on you -disregarded even if you have great ideals for the company

    Advice to Management

    -you should really look into people you're hiring and see if they went to college and can help this company out instead of steal their ideals and keep them as an associate

    I worked at Blue Apron full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company wants the best for everyone. Truly sets initiatives to ensure that the people are happy with many perks. A lot of SWAG gear, free lunches and company paid events. The people are awesome and down to earth.

    Cons

    Lack of organization throughout ALL departments. The wrong people are in the wrong roles. LONG hours and poor work life balance. Very reactive company and fails to be proactive. Very very very poor communication from the corporate office to facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting based off need and truly vet the candidates. Putting the wrong person in the wrong role is a harmful decision to the company in the long run. Do not make promises that can not be kept, be transparent. Stream line your process for pros and cons before rolling it out. In order to be effective when rolling something out, it needs to be communicated from corporate to everyone.

    I worked at Blue Apron full-time

    Pros

    Great place for first time workers, immigrations, and ex-con to work. The pay is really low but there is room for growth and raises. There is health benefit and plent of overtime. Relax hiring practices and the process of getting hire is really easy. Provide work for inner city family and minorities. Provide free lunch and have free farmer market for their employees.

    Cons

    Really unsafe working environment and people have negative attitude. It is a violence place to work and you have to deal with a lot of second chance people. Blue apron need to do proper background check. Blue apron hire a security company call bannerman. The secruity company is horrible and don't do their job. My physical well being and vehicle are constantly being threaten.

    Advice to Management

    Please get a new security company that know how to properly screen people. Ask the secruity team to stop people from speeding and bringing in contrabands inside the building. People are constantly breaking good manufacturering practices by brining in outside foods, painted nails, and cell phone. Security guards have no idea on how to properly screen people.

    I have been working at Blue Apron

    Pros

    Offers medical, vision and dental insurance. Free lunch. You really do meet some awesome hardworking people. Supervisors make sure the department you work in keeps you happy.

    Cons

    401k doesn't match. They let you go home early on slow days, shifts recently changed. Packaging area set up is too crowded and unsafe with product stacked high too close to employees. Kitchen is very cold. Then again it's warehouse what do you expect. Night shift can get wild.

    Advice to Management

    Some management do not know how to do their job right.
