    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at BlueStar full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay with weekends off and super easy job sometimes food is catered or you get left over food from the office.

    Cons

    Management is disgusting. The favoritism is absolutely ridiculous you can pick them out your first day. Managers constantly choose people to pick on and upper management lets them do whatever they want. The "packing leads"/wannabe manager, they are just nasty and have no people skills. Also you never know what time you'll get off work, rarely earlier than 10.

    I worked at BlueStar full-time

    Pros

    Privately owned and provides some opportunity to sharpen an employee's skills.

    Cons

    Very flat organization that does not provide a career path for individuals to grow with the company. The primary owner's family are warranted excessive privileges that the general employees do not have. Executive management fight between themselves in front of employees often forcing them to take sides. Management makes it clear that an employee is there to do a job function and ideas are often diminished by the input of antiquated business techniques that rarely work today.
