      Good place to work

      Nov 8, 2021 - Fork Lift Driver in Orlando, FL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Lots of work means lots of hours, good benefits after 90 days, 2 weeks of vacation a year after 1 yr on the job, 3 weeks of vacation after 5 years with the company. On the job training with fork lifts, pole lifts, and other industrial equipment. Good place to learn new life skills and organizational skills that are not natural from everyday life.

      Cons

      Work load rarely is as consistent as is posted on job forums, many long nights from 8pm to 6 or 7 am when the job is only supposed to last 8-9 hours max. Lots of unexpected turnover from new hires who become frustrated with the lack of hands on training throughout their first year or even just their first 90 days at most. No raises since I have been employed with them for about 3 years now. Management has a tendency to blame employees for work related incidents and accidents instead of stand in front of them and repair downed equipment (fork lifts, pole lifts, pallet jacks) in a timely and effective manner. Different crews (1st shift, 2nd shift, 3rd shift, sample builders, truckers, office clerks) move at different speeds making the work load unmanageable at times as a more experienced crew will often have to pick up the slack from less experienced crews or employees who are being paid the same or sometimes more money but are less productive overall despite having so called tough managers on the work site.

      Pros

      Please for the love of your mental health don’t apply here it’s so toxic and physically and mentally draining they constantly promise things like raises and bonuses but it’s all lies the only pro is a clean work environment

      Cons

      Everything except the work environment and the fact that they start you at $16 with no experience are cons the whole orientation where they tell you how nice and family like the employees are is lies and they say if you see something say something but when you call HR not only are they victim blamey they also target you at work

      Pros

      Company makes honest effort to support and celebrate employees, and work culture is cultivated in earnest. Work-life balance in reviewer’s department is protected.

      Cons

      Low pay, no cost of living increases, constant payroll/HR changes (reason given when company did not administer annual review), lower than market pay for reviewer’s department. Company says they encourage innovation, but do not in actuality. For those who like maintaining technology, it might be a good fit. But for those who want to create and implement, it likely would not. In some ways unreasonably risk averse.
