    Pros

    The environment in relation to people is very nice and comfortable, I am able to work sufficiently and with my coworkers

    Cons

    The environment in relation to the climate and accessibility varies from time to time , yet it does not affect my performance or thoughts about coming in to work.

    Advice to Management

    None that I can say that would really affect the employee work situation as it is in my own mind, yet everyone view things differently.

    I worked at IFCO Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you like busy work that makes the time go by then this is a good job for you. The work wasn't mind challenging but physically it was enough movement to keep you in shape. The pay was fair for what I was doing and the benefits were on par with the industry.

    Cons

    Could be dangerous if you aren't alert of your surroundings. I was common for Forklifts to zoom by you and not see you at all. Some of the products had hanging nails or pieces that would impale or cut you often. It wasn't a week that went by that I didn't gain a new cut somewhere. A lot of times we'd run out of supplies and had to make due with what we had in the time being.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Former Employee - General Manager in Mount Laurel, NJ

    I worked at IFCO Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary, autonomy and benefits, location was an easy 25 minute commute from home and within the same county.

    Cons

    Poor management and unprofessional treatment of employees, did not even have professional courtesy of a face to face discussion when released.

    Advice to Management

    Better evaluation of upper management and their management styles, company has fallen on hard times and it's no surprise when you take into consideration the high turnover rate of facility GM's.
