Solid company to work for, but very conservative in terms of risk takingOct 9, 2013 - Marketing Analyst in San Diego, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Very focused on employee training & work/life balance
Too many security hurdles to jump through just to do your day to day work

Not a good experienceJun 27, 2018 - Warehouse Associate in Burlington, NJRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Paid holidays Pto Vacation Weekends off
Can’t go anywhere on both 15 min breaks, have to stay in the building Mandatory OT Misleading job posts on all job search sites I applied for a full time regular position and a recruiter contacted me, had a phone interview, set up an interview the the manager. Interview went well. He told me sometimes they stay an hour or two and I was fine with that. Gets a call about the job offer all of a sudden they change my position to seasonal. I took it at the time cause I figured I could go and get hired after the season if I do a great job. First day the manager does not really acknowledge me but acknowledges the gentleman next to me and shakes his hand and not mine. Thought that was sexist from the start. I then learned later that the overtime is not only mandatory but they told me sometimes they had to stay until 1 or 2 in the morning when they came in at 10am and you have no choice in the manner. I learned all they do is lie to get you in the door. All the job posting they have out there are very MISLEADING. It says the hours are from 10:00am to 6:30pm with overtime AS NEEDED. It does not say mandatory overtime nor how long it is. I would not recommend working here as it will probably drain you and you will have no work life balance. They also lie to you and make you think it’s one thing when it’s a whole other thing. Another thing, on my first day I had another person there who applied for the same exact position as I had, and they were regular full time yet they changed mine to seasonal? Not cool. This is not a good place to work.Continue reading

HDS had potential but leadership focused on pleasing investors in the short term as opposed to doing what's best for orgNov 1, 2014 - Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Fairly compensated. Good work/life balance. Family atmosphere once you are accepted by the old-timers. Good time-off policy with floating holidays, wellness day, and 10 days of PTO. A lot of growth and opportunities. Very stimulating projects and initiatives with plenty areas for improvement.
Slight change in culture after the IPO. Health benefits went from 'alright' to 'bad'. Multiple rounds of layoffs since IPO including executive members. Work/life balance on a down turn after lay-offs with a lot of the workload being dropped on 'survivors'. A lot of turnover, especially with contractors, resulting in delays of deliverables.Continue reading

None it's just no pros to it
Completely disorganized senior leadership is a joke and have several people employed in positions they. Should never be in. They lie about the work hours and life balance .If you are looking for structure and growth avoid this place. Absolutely the most dirtiest warehouse I have ever seen!!!Continue reading

Account ManagerJul 14, 2013 - Account ManagerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Locations throughout the United States. Vacation begins to accrue from day one of employment. Company does believe in closing for most holiday's and weekends which allows you to have a decent work/life balance.
Lacking a program which helps employees grow within the company. No programs in place to help defined career paths. Continuing education is not a high priority.

This company is not the company it used to beMar 23, 2015 -RecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
No pros for this positions
In my opinion they do not do a good job of hiring senior managers. Senior managers do not practice what they preach. Junior managers do all the work while senior managers get all the accolades and there is no work-life balance for junior managers because of the very long hours they work and the pay isn't comparable to the hour worked.
We thank you for your feedback. It is disappointing to hear of your experience as it does not align with our goal of having leaders committed to building an environment of universal trust in which associates are thanked and rewarded for their contributions.

Customer ServiceOct 28, 2015 - Customer Service Representative in New Braunfels, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
If you are lucky you can work 10 hours a day to have Friday off. If you like getting micro- manage then this the job for you.
You are watch for everything you do. They will take the customer side over yours and there is zero work life balance. Your hours are logged in by a phone and if you don't follow there set talk time or time away from your desk you will get a wright up. Don't know about there be lots of work you are on the phone all day and you repeat your self for every call. When there is no call you have to just sit at your desk cause you can not have your phone out on the floor.
