    I worked at Warren Distribution (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It filled a void when I needed a position

    Cons

    Was with the company for five years and continued to receive the same pay-I understand that at the beginning our country was in a financial turmoil but things have changed - however, Warren has not. They continue to pay their employees the SAME wages as when times were desperate and people would take a job at ANY rate just to stay alive.

    Advice to Management

    ADJUST to the TIMES and ECONOMY accordingly. Just because this country WAS in a recession; does not give those in California (who are paid substantially more) the right to maintain ALL wages for all employees the same - when other companies are increasing wages and WalMart is closing in on some of the positions that require knowledge, certification, expertise at Warren. I could have said Paper or Plastic and had a GED and earned about the same. Warren NEEDS to keep their employees HAPPY, even a simple token raise, a Christmas Ham - any thing to show them that they are appreciative that they lived through the TOUGH years with them and continued to GROW their company - but instead the HEAD guys raise their salaries and the rest of the company continues to remain stagnant at their hiring rate for over 5 years.

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

    Pros

    There are a few good hearted, hard working, and honest people who work on the floor. Despite the lack of manager guidance, direction, and mentoring, the floor supervisors do their best to accommodate the needs of the floor workers.

    Cons

    Toxic, negative and vindictive place to work. Drama consistently flows throughout the packaging floor. Management looks the other way when concerns are communicated, but then blame the floor supervisors, operators, or line workers when those same concerns become real issues and problems. Management says they are transparent, but then fails to communicate important information. There are numerous safety policies in place and not enforced. The supervisors who care for the safety and welfare of their workers are criticized for being too harsh or strict. Training lacks any consistency and changes too often to expect new associates to effectively learn their job within the allotted time span.

    Advice to Management

    Replace mid-level managers with those that will actually be concerned with and do the job. Start listening and communicating on a consistent basis with those that work on the floor. Replace your self-centered, egotistical attitudes with a real, caring, deep concern for the well-being of those people that actually make the money for the company.

    Pros

    I have worked for Warren for over 15 years and my fellow employees are like family. Great place to work. Benefits are good, there is a fitness facility on site for employees and their families that is available 24/7.

    Cons

    Sometimes management does not listen to the associates who would be directly affected by a decision to get their input before making that decision.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, management is good. Listen to your employees more, they have some good ideas.
