    I worked at Holman Distribution Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules for a family oriented business. Plenty of praise and shout outs when deserved. Good benefits and keeping morale up always a priority.

    Cons

    A lot of weekend work and overtime scheduling. Different expectations from individuals and even shifts. Company enforced dress code of mens Polo shirts.

    Advice to Management

    Lay out expectations and job duties.

    I have been working at Holman Distribution Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked in other 3PL environments, and without a doubt, this company provides a much better quality of life than any other that I have encountered. Many of the folks have been promoted up from within, which is encouraging and inspiring.

    Cons

    Nothing to mention at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be aggressive when it comes to growth. There are many 3PL providers that can't execute, so there is a great opportunity for Holman to grab that business.

    Pros

    Good pay future benefits, hands on training, great stepping stone job for future endeavors, helped me gain experience

    Cons

    When push comes to shove and you terminate an insurbordinate employee, your words is meaningless should anything happen to draw suspicion.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your supervisors reward the ones that put in more effort and punish the employees who abuse leadership

    Pros

    New President seems to be moving the company in the right direction.

    Cons

    The Admin/HR and Accounting department is a mess. Poorly managed by new management who does not listen to employees, extremely underpays, and the work/schedule is unpredictable - you generally work based on management's timeline without notice. There is ton of overtime required due to amount of work needed to be done and being understaffed which is by choice of management. Claims work/life balance, all false. All heads down and bad work environment. Unless you ask for a much higher pay to match required amount of work/OT I do not recommend working here.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the Cons; listen to employees.

    It is certainly our goal for everyone to have a proper work/life balance. 2016 was very much a transition year for Holman in a number of ways, including our Accounting/Finance/HR teams. We made a... More

    I have been working at Holman Distribution Center full-time

    Pros

    Work around a lot of people that want to help you get better. Good training from most.

    Cons

    Work activity is slow. Not really much to do during the 12 hour shift.

    Advice to Management

    Update training videos! And listen to your employees!!

    Pros

    It's a job, not much of a job, but it's a job!! It's a 20 word minumum, but I can't think of any other pros to it other than it just being a job!!!

    Cons

    There's no incentives, lots of favortism n double standards. No chance for advancement unless you're fishing buddies with management. Very unsafe, you point out safety infractions and management just laughs!! There's a warehouse full of hard workers that have given a lot of their spare time to help the company and do a great job, but go unnoticed while the office help has done very little and gets all the recognition!! The pay scale is corrupt and not paid accordingly!! The moral is so low due to lack of management that people are giving up and not caring about quality or productivity! There's such a huge turnover rate they can't get people in the door as fast as they're leaving, therefore having to work tons of overtime to make up for it!! I can't even put a rating on this cause I wouldn't feel good giving them one star!! Ok, so it wouldn't let me submit it without giving it a star so there it is! I give it one star!!

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue!! You take care of your people, your people will take care of you!! Step down and let someone that knows what they're doing take the wheel!!!

    I worked at Holman Distribution Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    easy job that is it

    Cons

    you can be the best worker they have or have all the skills you are not getting pay for them or get promoted the only people to get a promotions are the operation manager friends or these with the same tendencies as him this people don't have any skills but what do you expect the operation manager don't have any warehouse skill either but what make it worst is the general manager knows about what is going on but he rather look the other way

    Advice to Management

    stop using your position to help and promote your friend and people with the same tendencies as you and really do your job like you are supposed to be fare when it comes to promotions show the care for employees
