I have worked here for a few months, they hired me in to work Monday through Friday, 6-2:30, i have worked that schedule 2 weeks out of all the 3.5 months i’ve worked there. They constantly will make you work 50 hours a week and lower your pay!

Pros and Cons
Nice people
Hours! Overtime!

I've worked with the company for 3 years. In the 3 years i only got to be an Advance associate or a Lead in progress as they would say. When employees that haven't been working there long at all were moved up in departments. When i 1st started my pay was 15.00 and when i left it was on 16.25. That's a 1.25 for 3 years of picking, packing, loading, unloading, fixing jams on conveyor belts, and helping other associates, while im inputting the numbers of how we did and sending emails to my supervisors and leads. Seemingly sounds great but management wasn't.

Pros and Cons
Nice associates
Overworked not enough pay
