      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Pay and benefits are good. Employees are good people. 401k is a 50% match up to 7% of income. Health insurance is great and affordable with vision, dental, 3 sick/personal days per year and good prorated vacation.

      Cons

      Not enough supervision and accountability for improper freight loading. Too much emphasis on quantity not quality. Improper safety measures for dock cleanliness (no machine for cleaning platform for prevention of dust particle inhilation.) No overtime until after 52 hours. Long hours and usually not allowed to get overtime.

      Good pay but noticeable flaws

      Jun 12, 2018 - Clerk 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good pay, benefits, a lot of hours, office environment, bonuses, holiday pay, PTO, 3 personal days, $100 gift card to company store every holiday season, and good HR.

      Cons

      Long hours, tedious work, bad quality control, owners and higher-ups pocket a lot of the money earned by the customer service reps and truck drivers, rules are only enforced when they want to be (i.e., one person can call out for 3 days in a row and another will be reprimanded immediately), managers always break rules for customers, inefficient routes created by management, not a forward thinking company (i.e., a day's work will be almost always focused on tasks at hand and not improving any daily tasks for future benefit).
