Challenging yet fun workplace.
Operations Clerk (Current Employee), Joliet, ILJuly 24, 2015
Pros: Three 15 minute breaks, fun townhall meetings
Cons: 4am or 6am starts
I began at this job as a verifyer which is where I would look over the freight that came in and matched the information to a pack-list. Then after a month I was moved into the office to learn how to data enter. This position was a bit more difficult because there was much more information to remember, but I enjoyed the challenge. Then I was moved to my last and final position and was given a raise. The most difficult part of working for Menlo was when I became in charge of the Grief Area. This is where all of the problems were solved. It helped having such great co-workers who would help me with anything I needed because at first it was hard for me. With the little bit of training I recieved, I taught my self most of the job.

Productive
Inbound Receiving/Shipping Clerk (Former Employee), Joliet, ILJuly 1, 2015
A typical day at work starts with a morning "huddle" meeting in the warehouse to determine what the goal for the department should be. For example, how many trailers were in the dock doors, and how much work would come into the office to be data entered and sent back out on the floor to be received.

Job Advancement is excellent!
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee), Lithia Springs, GAMay 12, 2015
Within Menlo, I am in charge of a team of 20 employees working in the Outbound Department. We are responsible
for the on time shipping of all Domestic and International orders for Google, Inc. I oversee the shipping metrics, the
Lean 5-S programs, Kronos for payroll, as well as the performance management of my team members. I am a
State certified equipment and safety trainer, trained by Enviro Safetech in Cranbury, NJ. I work directly with both HR to
to assist my employees with any personal matters, and the Inventory Control Team to rectify and errors that arise
with our shipments.

The most enjoyable part of my day is the associates I work with. I have a great team under me!

Depends on the account...
Transportation Analyst (Current Employee), Auburn Hills, MIMay 10, 2015
Depending on the account you work for, this place can be great, or terrible. Sometimes the expectation is "whatever the customer needs". That means staying late, coming in on weekends, missing family time. I have worked on one account that was terrific, the other two, were a nightmare.

Good people to work around, but missing organization with the warehouse.
Forklift Operator/Data Entry - Lithia Springs (Former Employee), lithia springsApril 15, 2015
Pros: Co-workers
Cons: Lack of experienced management
While there is plenty of work to do when you clock-in, the lack of organization makes processing the work that much more difficult. With the turn over rate being as high as it is, it is hard to find someone that has extensive knowledge of the system and how the operations work.

Not for an ambitious professional
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee), Kent, WAFebruary 23, 2015
Pros: steady work
Cons: poor management
There is little potential for growth in this position, and it is not a strong resume builder unless you want to do the exact same thing at another company. But, why would you unless there's something terribly wrong with your current employer?

There is some opportunity to learn new skills in Lean, but otherwise a basic warehousing job.

Management is slothful. They care more about the status quo than excellence, one of the company's core values.

Co-workers are decent. Some are difficult to deal with because of language barriers, personality, or both. They have little to no interest doing their jobs well. If taking a few extra steps makes their work difficult or inconvenient, they will avoid them which creates difficulties for others doing their work.

There really isn't anything terribly hard about this job. Sometimes, there is overtime work, but less now than during start-up.

The most enjoyable thing was learning and applying Lean, but that has slowed down as well.

Lastly, there are few opportunities for training, and little standardization across the company in terms of operations and institutional knowledge.
