Warehouse Associate/ Picker (Current Employee), Buena Park, CA – June 15, 2015
Pros: Fast past environment
Topical day at A&R Logistics Inc. is systematically pulling orders from priority of 2,500 LBS. of sugar via forklift operating. Fulfilling invoice for delivery orders as well as filling daily completed orders for the day. I’ve learned to efficiently provide instructions to trainees. I was able to create a team work environment between new trainees and co-workers. I have ability to resolve any issues in my area at any time and enjoy achieving all goals and task for the day.
Logistics Manager (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TX – April 26, 2015
I loved working at A&R. I learned so much about the logistics, & transport business. I fulfilled all of a certain company's orders, & ensured that orders were executed exactly as company requested. I learned how to spot & release railcars from our rail yard, & scaled our bulk trucks in & out. I also scheduled expedited orders when needed. Co-workers were awesome, and it was a laid back atmosphere that I loved!

Warehouse Worker (Current Employee), College Park, GA – August 14, 2014
Cons: pay. benefits
Good job if you need a job. Otherwise we are under paid for our skill set. Coworkers are great but management is great for the company but not the employees. Employees don't have no sick days or personal time days.
Employee (Former Employee), Morris, IL – August 30, 2013
Pros: great people and great service offerings
Cons: culture and growth advancement opportunites
Great provider of services and some great people even outstanding in some areas. New ownership has caused a semi-confused culture to become paranoid in possibilities of increased change. All leadership from company that grew to $250M has been relieved from their duties.
If you want to be overworked and under paid this is the job for you.
Customer Solutions Technician (Former Employee), Morris, IL – June 25, 2013
Pros: great coworkers minus management.
Cons: management. hours, salary position (when you easily work over 40 hours), can be called in at all hours of the night, expect you to work from home.
They make you say yes to every customer which leads to days and days of headaches especially when you cant cover a load. They give you more work then a normal person can handle. And when someone is off for the day you have to pick up their accounts. This makes for a very stressful work enviroment. The managers are really sly. No one you can really trust.
I was happy with the equipment that I had driven. Very clean operation. Free truck wash at every terminal. Trailers and truck were well maintained. Plenty of freight to deliver. Excellent learning experence for weight distrobution up to 44,000#.
