Still hiring. Definitely not shutting down. They're still working lots of OT at the moment.

. If u haven't heard from them yet well don't hold ur breath. I had an interview in April, was told they would call me in about 2 weeks, well they never called. I called today and was told that they over figured and only needed 3 material handlers . But if I see it posted again to make sure I apply again. What they fail to tell you is they lost the Wal Mart account. That's fine just do what you say you are going to do, an call an tell the people that they have filled the spot an no more are needed. Just be a business professional.Its got tto be a nice place to work, so I will try again.

Chrissy told me they closed down Green Bay , an was suppose to bring work down here to make this their world headquarters. Guess they still working on it. Knowing people there doesn't always help. My wife has known Chrissey's husband since he was born, best friends with her husband's aunt and I lived besides her morther in law for years when I was growing up. Still see her at the place she work's every week. They are all nice people. Mother in law even give me a reference. Oh well maybe next time. I'll just keep tryin. Have a great day!

Not really poor management when it comes to walmart - they try to dictate prices to companies like nice-pak. The company I work for had to start sending work to China and Mexico because walmart wanted to pay next to nothing or they would go to the competition.

whether or not it is putting all the eggs in one basket Walmart is a big account that everyone wants. Right now the economy is not in great shape so all accounts matter. You do not want the competition to get the big accounts because it is those accounts will help a business survive in tough times. That is good business management whether or not you think so.

In this case the company could survive without walmart, it would have to slim down closing facilities that are still in the states sending even more work overseas.
