The warehouse day begins with arriving to 2 or more deliveries from the previous day waiting on you. Truck scheduling is erratic so you may receive from 5 to 16 loads per day of varying sizes. follow many processes throughout the receipt and storage phase for product that has no issues either physically or systematically. continue until the end of the – more... day anywhere from 16:00 - 18:30. – less
Senior Manager (Current Employee), IL – April 26, 2014
Cons: see review
The company has a decent compensation structure but lacks the ability to empower managers to make decisions on their own. Senior leadership is very weak and struggles with managing the business and keeping customers.
A good company in the begining , work dynamics changed,
Receiving Lead (Former Employee), Sandston, VA – April 3, 2014
Pros: meeting new people and working with them.
Cons: management not addressing problems before it gets out of control.
a typical day was about required coming into morning meetings and unloading containers. What I've learn how to deal with difficult people and remain objective in feelings. Management was not favorable to its employees. Co workers were great in owning up to company expectations. The hardest part of the job was management lack of confidence in the employee – more... performing job duties. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to go to work every day and completing job tasks daily. – less

I work typically 10+ hours a day doing work that I thoroughly enjoy as aiding in Customer's satisfaction is rewarding. I have learned many shipping and receiving logistics in addition to managing Spare Parts for a Global Facility. Being a contract employee at HP has it's trials as the lines of communication and Supervision are not clearly defined or – more... universal. The best part of the job is hearing the Customer's satisfaction when I aid in an escalation to get Web presses back up and running by providing the necessary Spare Parts. – less

Warehouse Lead (Former Employee), Dayton, NJ – August 13, 2013
Pros: employees were recognized for their efforts and achievements in our daily meeting, this fostered a positive work environment.
Cons: the only con was the effect on my family life due to arriving home between 8-9 most nights.
The typical day varied a bit based on the workload that came from our client. Mostly it consisted of ensuring that the medical equipment and supplies reached the end customer on time.My duties revolved around training new warehouse associates, creating/revising/reviewing SWIs and SOPs, training associates on PITs (forklifts, order pickers, etc), overseeing – more... the shipping, receiving and inventory clerks, and helping out were needed. I went through outside training provided by the company to become the facility's certified lift trainer. In my position I worked across several accounts and had to work with 3 different WMS systems. Management was easy to work for and with. They were open-minded, receptive to input and approachable. My co-workers were pleasant to work with. The hardest part of the job was trying to strike a balance between work life and family life due to the shift we were on and my distance from home. We started at 10am and ended between 6:30 and 8:00pm. Add to that a 90 minute commute each way and it put stress on the family life. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed working at Menlo. I enjoyed the different challenges that each day provide, as well as the people and the environment. – less

Material Handler Lead (Former Employee), Joliet, IL – July 20, 2013
Pros: great benefits and very nice people to work with
Cons: alot of people did not obey the rules, when i advised my supervisor (part of my job) nothing was done about it.
start at either 6am or 4 am depending on expected work for the month. We had to meet customer requirements monthly. Every day we would have a pre-shift meeting where our supervisors would relay any information and what they expected of us for the day. I had 5 people to supervise in my position and had to make sure that they met there goals for the hour – more... and always had work to do. Had to create daily reports to be sent to all supervisors in all departments to alert them if any help/parts were needed. Management listened when you approached them with concerns or ideas of how to make something run smoother. The hardest part of the job was the weather being that it was a warehouse- hot in summer and cold in winter. We had a group of people that planned various activities (picnic, contests, etc) throughout the month, I was part of that team. – less
