Whatever you do, simply do NOT work for this company...ever! I was looking for a job that offered benefits and a fulfillment center opened up about 10 miles from my house so I applied. The hours are actually great...6pm-4:30am (Sunday - Wednesday) which works well with my other job as a substitute teacher. I started the week the plant opened (roughly 3 months ago) and everything was great. I survived the holiday season and had received nothing but positive feedback from my supervisors. in ft, one supervisor let me know that when he needed a cart packed by a certain time, he just brings them to me because he knows I will get it done in time and have zero quality issues. About 2 weeks we learned that we had new Area Managers and this is when everything went to shit. I received a written warning at the end of the new manager's first week saying that my rate/quota was bad. It covered the previous 6 weeks and I only failed to make rate once. Still I was "written up." No verbal, no coaching just a written warning that stays in my file for 30 days. If I fail to make rate again this month, then I am out the door. Naturally I explained to the new AM that this wasn't fair since we had been slow after Christmas and had spent hours (literally) just standing around waiting for orders to be filled. How can one make rate if there is no work to be done? He said this was "no excuse." Now for the past several days everything is in a constant state of flux. They are moving our stations around, playing with our rate numbers, etc... Dd I mention they are awful liars, as well? During our stand-up meeting the other night, I asked if we could write a new program into our rate tracker to better give us a sense of where our rate stands when switching between multi-carts. I was told, "I'm sorry...but technology has not come that far yet." WTF??? Last Thursady night we were required to work an additional 10 hours of overtime. Again, there was not much work so if negatively affected peoples' rates. He is calling for more OT this week. Why???
