    "Great Part/Full time job."

    Former Employee - Distribution Center Associate

    I worked at Essendant part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The hours are great if you are a part time student. Even if working full time, hours are still great. Depending on what shift you take. Mornings are the best! Great Pay! Weekends off! Great Team!

    Cons

    A lot of the older employees can be bossy.

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

    Pros

    The pay isn't too bad but don't expect much if anything in raises. That is the only good thing. But it isn't worth the stress.

    Cons

    Unpredictable hours at the Walker, MI location. Sometimes it's busy, other times you are lucky to get 30 hours a week. The company is at an all time low with stocks and will be lucky to make it another two years. The turnover rate is insane and you never know how bad your shift will be as it's impossible to predict who will show up. They expect you to work multiple positions at the same time including jumping back... and forth between departments. It is highly stressful. The management sucks. They play favorites and continuously make horrible decisions. They will lie to your face. They don't listen and will walk away as you are taking to them. There is no on site HR so you are stuck dealing with them for most issues. Complaining about anything will get you fired.

    Advice to Management

    There is no point in giving them advice. They don't listen and are happy to run the place into the ground.

    I worked at Essendant full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Its work, if you need a paycheck.

    Cons

    Not something that you can do for 20 years. Too much favoritism at play with the new managers.

    I have been working at Essendant full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay , lots of overtime, and co workers are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Too many shift changes, Union does not care about its members , Managers will just yes you to death on important issues. I would not recommend this job to anyone.
