Hard work all day long with only (1) one break. Dirty warehouse. Supervisor's was alright, they did what they had to do get the job done on a daily basic. Co-workers was ok, everyone had something to complain about. The most enjoyable part was clocking out for the day.
A typical day of work at Exel was something I could put up with everyday. It was basically an environment where you worked with a variety of different races and with your friends. I learned a few things at Exel. I learned how to pick and pack, how to do their inventory, how to read certain labels, etc. The management was outstanding here at Exel because – more... the managers would actually hop in to help when needed. I enjoyed working with every co worker at Exel. Everyone was extremely friendly and made me feel as if I was at home but I was actually in the work place on my feet all day. The hardest part about this job was being on your feet for eleven hours each day. The most enjoyable part was when you got rewarded for your hard work and got to pick a prize out if you were selected for that week. – less
