Order Puller (Former Employee), Richmond, VAFebruary 18, 2015
A typical work place at Genesis consists of pulling orders. I learned to code date product. Code dating product consists of adding prices and expiration dates before shipping them to the stores. I didn't think management was being fair sometime. I thought that it was very difficult for a female to push a cart full of milk gallons, I thought that was more for a man. The manager decided to let men pick snack cakes, chips and stack doughnut instead of pushing those heavy milk carts.

Run as fast as you can in the opposite direction....
Driver (Former Employee), Richmond, VADecember 1, 2014
Pros: parent company exel offers good benefits at low cost
Cons: you likely won't be able to tolerate the 90 days required to get those benefits
Disorganized from top to bottom. Thug culture on the docks. Product never ready to load and you start two hours late but are still expected to pull off your deliveries by the 5:00 deadline. Pay is component, but if you figure it by the hour you're making about 10.00 to 12.00 bucks. Red tag a truck because it quits or has an air leak and you'll come in to find it assigned to you that same night. Manager in charge of trucks doesn't know a lug nut from a lift gate. Anything you sit down for more than a second will be stolen..If you can't keep it within your line of vision it will be gone...your watch, your hand truck, your cargo straps, your phone...Just a nightmare from start to finish.

Good entry position
Secretary (Former Employee), Denver, CONovember 19, 2014
Needed structure and organization. Did not put clients first and did not do what was right for those who trusted in thee company. Co workers did not take their job seriously and continuously offended each others and clients. Staff was very unprofessional with no direction.

warehouse clerk (Former Employee), bordentown njJuly 28, 2014
Pros: they give you lunches for holiday's and good work perfromance, they try and get there emplyess to follow but it dosen't work, good benefit's etc.
Cons: they need to add a second 15 min break during the day, probally whysome people just take one. some people
the job itself is fine it's the people they hire, nobody check's on
it's employees enough worker's walk out for 30 to 40 min at a time
stand around and talk, mgmt dosen't enforce it's rules enough.
actaully enjoyed the work but had to leave for those reason's.

Delivery Driver (Current Employee), Auburn, WAMarch 23, 2014
Pros: competitive pay, paid vacation/sick leave, excellent health/dental and vision benefits.
Cons: inconsistant communication and/or procedures.
Genesis Logistics is a well established nation-wide food distributor for 7-11, Racetrac, and Walgreen stores. A typical day involves verifying, staging, loading and delivering daily store orders that consist of fresh foods, dairy and snack products. A normal shift usually ranges from 9-11 hours and delivery to approximately 20 stores a night between the hours of 5:30 PM and 3:30 AM.

Throughout my two years of employment with Genesis, I've had the opportunity to gain management experience by being given the responsibilities of training new recruits, routing, and acting as a liaison between stores, drivers, and upper management.

In many ways my immediate supervisors have served as both mentors and friends by passing along advice and expertise without being overly critical of my shortcomings.

My counterparts all bring individualized strengths to the table and enable me to build upon previously gained work-related knowledge.

The most difficult part of working for Genesis would be the unforeseen circumstances that occasionally arise e.g., extra stops/hours relative to staffing issues, compliance with Hours of Service regulations, and excessive delivery volumes

What I've enjoyed most about working for Genesis is the empowerment that each driver gains by independently developing his/her own delivery techniques, given that the techniques are safe and within general company guidelines.

Learned alot in a short period of time
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Bordentown, NJMarch 6, 2014
Pros: free lunches and gifts foe the holidays and great birthday celebrations.
Cons: not having enough help in the office.
There was nothing typical about this job. I began as a temp employee doing data entry. I was hired on within 3 months and from that point on was a very was a very significant part of the office team. Doing anything from data entry to accounts payable. Working 7 days a week at 60-70 hours per week. The management was somewhat difficult because it was ever changing. You had to learn to adapt quickly as to what each new comer expected of you daily. I think the hardest part was not being able to take even a personal day. Giving up holidays and not even getting a scheduled day off during the week because I was really the only person in the office that understood every facet of the company. I loved being the one that everybody had to come to in order to get through the day. I had so much knowledge of the office and was really needed. It felt very rewarding.

A lot of people come and go, productive and very busy
Putter (Former Employee), Auburn, WAJanuary 26, 2014
Cons: the pay rate.
I would come into work at 8am-6pm Sunday, Monday, Thursday and Friday. My duties were to set up for work and put merchandise in designated area's.
The only thing I learned from this job was how quickly food can expire.
Management was not good. My manager would consistently sit in his chair and just browse on the internet while we all worked and the other supervisor would constantly work us non stop even if we had a family emergency he would not understand us.
My co workers were really cool to work with.
Hardest part of the jobs was working all the heavy items such as crates and crates of milk.
Nothing really fun about this job.

Fast pace work place and an ever changing envirnment.
Light Truck Driver (Former Employee), Chesapeake, VANovember 14, 2013
A typical day at Genesis is a fast pace and forever changing of the rules.
I have learned to adapt at short time notice along with accepting a work place for what it is.
Management at genesis is confusing and difficult to comprehend.
The co-workers are great hard working individuals.
The hardest part of the job is looking for your items to load up.
The most enjoyable part of the job is finishing your route

Jonathan Perez-Supervisor (Former Employee), Fontana, CANovember 13, 2013
Pros: great work experience and history.
Cons: company shut down.
I enjoyed working with this company for several reasons. I was able to grow with the company as it was growing. This company was a new company being trained by another well known business. I was trained in several positions and was able to show my strengths in several of my previous positions from my past job history. The down fall was that the company was slowly doing lay offs due to sales and loss of clientele. I was one of the last employees to be laid off.

This place absolutely sucked!!
Route Driver (Former Employee), Chesapeake, VirginiaJune 14, 2013
Pros: low cost health care, with low premiums.
Cons: long hours of 10, 11 & 12, poor management & low pay or extremely physical work...nuff said!!
I used to work @the Chesapeake, Virginia location, you will work an average of 10+ hours daily, for $13.58, no overtime included as u get paid for what u carry on the trucks. I was a delivery driver with a route of 15 stores. Your pay for items on the truck is .5 cents, no matter how heavy the item. Often times ur truck is loaded to the max, as u can't even move to off load items, bcuz the 7-11 stores that u delivery to always over order. Management doesn't care about any of the people that work for them, routinely writing people up for even tha smallest infraction. A raise is hard to come by, 2% was being discussed as a possibility, when I worked there, but it was no guarantee. They don't like to give any days off, the place has 150% turnover of all workers, drivers, management & warehouse workers!! This 150% turnover happens 2x in one year I might add, I worked for them for 10 months...heh, ha, haa...I stayed way to long!! The work is extremely physical & extremely low paying & non gratifying!! Absolutely run from this job, u can do a whole lot better is my advice!!
