    I have been working at Odom full-time

    Pros

    It's a family ran business that has been around for 80 years. The pay is great, everyone is very helpful, the supervisors are working supervisors and will help anywhere.

    Cons

    Being around a ton of other warehouses, the streets can get crowded with semis coming or going. Not a lot of food choices.

    Pros

    A few networking and windows admin folks are very friendly.

    Cons

    This company has low ethical standards. I worked as a contractor but only for 7 days. During that period, a family of mine passed away. So I asked for a day off to attend the funeral. The VP who I reported to approved it. However when I got back to work the day after the funeral, they called my consulting firm to end my contract. No reason was given, not even after more than a month later.

    I completed my work on my last day and asked the BI manager to review later that afternoon. He said he would review it with me on Monday instead. I offered to email an update to everyone but he said it was not necessary. It appeared the decision had been made at that point.

    Advice to Management

    If taking a day off to attend a funeral is not allowed, you should tell me so.
    Please respect the contractors. They are human beings too.

    I have been working at Odom full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family ran, care about people, great benefits, pay is decent,

    Cons

    not open to new way of thinking, does not support telecommuting or working from remote sites, VPs are not tuned into the business and make decisions that do not support business.

    Advice to Management

    be more in tune to new business processes. look at ways to improve worker's days. send new managers, even VP to training to understand business before they are put in a position to make dangerous decisions.

    I have been working at Odom full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The Odom family makes wise business decisions at the right times. They're very smart about the way their business grows, and they genuinely care about their employees. There aren't many companies that you can walk down the hallway, and have the owner of the company call you by your first name, and ask you how your family is doing. I sincerely love coming to work every day, and being able to work with people that seem to feel the same way. We all seem to work hard to play hard. Odom also tends to promote from within on a regular basis, which is great.

    Cons

    Don't get discouraged if you start out in a job that isn't "what you want to be when you grow up". Opportunity will knock.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up that family feel, no matter how big the success gets!

    I have been working at Odom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Odom has great employees who are passionate about their jobs, and love working in the industry. Their benefits all around are top notch and incomparable by other companies that I have worked for. There are various options for advancement depending on the department you are in.

    Cons

    There are departments within Odom that are hard to advance in. There is some feelings of favoritism within these departments as well, and it makes for an uncomfortable environment to work in when someone is unhappy about that.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. There is a lot of information that I wish I had known from the start, and that I found out much after it was too late. Proper recognition of a job well done is always nice and definitely appreciated - yet not always given.

    Pros

    Company actually cares about it's employees. Pay is better compared to most places especially in Idaho.

    Cons

    Hard to move up. Can take years to move from night shift to day shift and then can take even longer to become a supervisor or manager.

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

    Pros

    The pay was amazing. it was 75% better than every other job in its field.

    Cons

    Day time warehouse was not was it was cracked up to be. Family is not as big with the day time management as it is with night time management

    Advice to Management

    Night time managers keep doing what you're doing. You boost morale of your subordinates and give true constructive criticism. Day time managers need to value family more.

    Solid salary and benefits. The owners actually care about their employees (very rare in the day and age). Lots of current and projected future growth.

    Cons

    Can be a challenge to advance. Lots of younger folks in upper management.
