Bindery Operator (Former Employee) –  La Vergne, TNDecember 8, 2016
Awesome place to work, but sometimes the job is too demanding. otherwise a great environment, excellent break room. The only issue could be managers because when busy season hits their stress can spill over on to everyone else.
Pros
High pay
Cons
No flexible hours. Long periods standing with short breaks

Management refuses to actually manage
Library Processor (Former Employee) –  Chambersburg, PAJanuary 20, 2017
Management refuses to actually manage their employees, it's an awful environment to work in. Their retention rate is absolutely ridiculous and they genuinely don't understand why they can't get the right people to stay.
Pros
pay
Cons
everything else

Picker (Former Employee) –  TennesseeDecember 31, 2016
I worked here as seasonal picker during peak season. The job is pretty easy, and you usually keep to yourself. You go in do your job and leave. Management is all right.

Transitional Work
Library Processor (Current Employee) –  TNAugust 20, 2015
Ingram Distribution center is not the place to make a career without a degree. The warehouse should only be for those in transition to their next level not a permanent career.
Pros
401K
Cons
Hot and Late notice of mandatory overtime

Ingram was a great place to work until they advanced people into supervisor positions that had no people skills
library processor (Former Employee) –  La Vergne, TNSeptember 28, 2014
the work was great, I loved processing books for libraries, and before that stocking, packing and receiving product. The benefits were great and up till my last year management was great. They let go many long term employees who excelled in their jobs for little or no reason.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
supervisors who new little about the departments they were running

It's a good job
Digital Content Specialist (Current Employee) –  La Vergne, TNJuly 18, 2014
It's a good place to work at the entry level. I have a good office job and make an average wage.

Opportunities for advancement to management and beyond are almost nonexistent for internal employees as I see most of the management level and above hired from outside the company.
Pros
Pleasant work environment. Good benefits
Cons
Lack of advancement opportunities

Credit Collections (Former Employee) –  TNDecember 29, 2013
The company has went down hill in the last 15 years. Was a wonderful place to work when started. By the end it mattered who you were and what others thought. Let go after 16 years for no reason except the management did not like me. Senior management is awful!!!
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Bad senior management

Tell me lies...
Professional (Former Employee) –  Fort WayneNovember 22, 2013
The pay and benefits at Ingram are good. Excellent insurance, decent 401k. Does it make up for everything else you are put through? No.
What Ingram does is tell you a bunch of untruths and half-truths about the work environment to get you to take the job. Minimal overtime! No problem if you need time off to spend Christmas with your family! However, after you start working, the story quickly changes. "Occasional" overtime becomes 50 & 60 hour work weeks on a regular basis. Why hire enough people to do the job when you can just work the ones you have half to death? If you are unlucky enough to have a salaried position, you don't get an extra dime or 5 minutes of comp time for your commitment to the company, just the joy of spending all your waking hours at work.
Want to go to church on Sunday? Not if there is work to be done! But you will never be told about the mandatory Sunday overtime in your interview. They will spring that little tidbit on you AFTER you start to work there. In fact, consider yourself lucky if the possibility of working weekend is ever mentioned.

I would not recommend Ingram. The management is very top down. They don't care about their employees. Nothing is a team effort, but centers around what they can force you to do for them. For your pay and benefits, you will give them your life. They say that they are "like a big family" which I guess is true because if you work here, you will have no time to spend with your own family & friends.
Pros
Discounted books, decent co-workers, good benefits
Cons
Ingram's idea of work/life balance is that you give them your life.
