Q: What is it like working as a Warehouse Associate?

Warehouse Associate in Sacramento:
"Good people and good hard work."

Cons: Thinkni could be paid better.

Warehouse Associate in Charleston:
"Great learning experience!!"
Pros: The office staff and hours.
Cons: The traffic after work.

Warehouse Associate in Chesapeake:
Pros: It is a good learning experience as far as learning what makes a store run.
Cons: The pay is low. The hours are not consistent. The work climate is whatever the temperature outside is (No heat in the winter and no AC in the summer).

Warehouse Associate in Kent:
"Good Environment and People."
Pros: I enjoy the people I work with a lot.
Cons: I want to make more money and have more benefits.

Warehouse Associate in Appleton:
"Time goes too quickly."
Things will never get better. This is as good as it gets.

Warehouse Associate in Madison:
"Constant communication necessary."
Make sure upper management communicates with lower management.

Warehouse Associate in Aurora:
"Awesome Place To Work."
Pros: The freedom. I am free to make/initiate changes to my work environment as I see fit. I can request additional supplies or tools to assist in my daily tasks and have the information about why I need more tools and can present that to my manager for consideration in getting the tools I am requesting. I have a positive work environment and lots of support from the people I work closely with.
Cons: All the changes as of recent. Also, the pay I currently receive. I feel that the amount of work and everything I'm responsible for is not properly compensated. A lot of work, a lot of responsibility, and the pay doesn't match these things. I also have a work partner who I work closely with every day and he doesn't carry his weight. He needs to constantly be reminded of very simple things, and has no "high gear" when it starts getting busy. He works at the same slow speed all the time. He'll only start moving faster when I get on him about it - no initiative.
