Receiverand lumper (Former Employee), loma linda – July 10, 2014
it was a typical day at work but at the same time it was interesting and fun for the reason that the night will pass so fast. co-workers used to help a lot in the things that I was having trouble or I didn't know
Material Handler (Former Employee), Perris, Ca – July 4, 2014
Pros: local, money.
If you work there, have your forklift certificate so they can train you for your next job, but it's cool cause there cause the A.C or Fan always close by. But like, you could be all tired,, one day but feel good when work slows down a bit. So you can't complain.
PS: Watch out for the supervisors, on their bikes, you'll see what I mean by that when – more... you get there..Lol – less
Forklift Operator (Current Employee), Rincon, GA – May 22, 2014
Pros: three days of work
Cons: management, pay, some co workers
I enjoy some of the coworkers and the rest despise because of work ethic and general attitude. I was luckily trained for three days and not tossed out like the rest I came to find. Management was never present on my shift or seemed to know what was going on. I worked real hard and learned everything i could and only received two dimes for it while most – more... basically coasted and got free checks and the same or better raises.Never increased pay for learning and excelling at new areas in warehouse. – less
Inventory management (Former Employee), Harlysville – April 8, 2014
The co- workers were ok, but the manger do nothing to help you. Management wants to work when something go crazy wrong. Don't ask them any question about the job cause they will not have a answer. No raises. Typical day at work was stressful ever since NFI took over
Receiving clerk/order control (Current Employee), Whitestown/ Lebanon, In – March 16, 2014
Pros: working with people and pushing for results daily
Cons: not enough room for advancement
I start my day figuring out what needs to be done that day in order to help plan the day. I work the order control desk along with our shipping lead. I learn something new everyday and I try to push myself as hard as I can everyday. The morning starts in a very hectic manner and then will die down in the first hour. I try to help wherever possible, – more... that may be invoicing, picking orders, or just my normal position of order control. My co-workers are good hardworking people, however with some there is a language barrier. I am taking spanish classes to help with that. Management is good. I enjoy challenging myself to get things done and help wherever possible. I enjoy working with people. – less
Billing Clerk (Former Employee), Whitestown, IN – February 2, 2014
NFI was the previous third party logistics company for Accuride Corporation. It is where I gained all the knowledge I had and carried on to Penske. It was an enjoyable job and loved working with the drivers that came in as well as the employees.
Lead Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TX – December 24, 2013
Really great job if your wanting to move up quick. Was not my only intention but with my experience and knowledge lead me able to very easily with the easy data processor, and limited work space. Great company met allot of great people!
Material Handler (Current Employee), Chino, CA – November 20, 2013
Pros: the exercise
Cons: the exercise
Well typical work days starts early and our supervisors assign us our assignment some days are harder than others. The supervisors are really nice and answer my questions, they are friendly and easy to approach. The most enjoyable part of my day is when I pick up the last box and place it on the roller.
Material Handler (Current Employee), Chino, CA – November 6, 2013
Cons: unpredictable hours
When I first began working for NFI, work was unpredictable. Some days I would come to work expecting to work a full shift to find that there was no work. However, NFI has been good about sending me to other sites to get in hours of work.
local truck driver (Current Employee), mauston,wi – October 17, 2013
Pros: new trucks, great manager in mauston, wi
Cons: benefits, always work a sat. or sun., drivers are expendable, dispatchers need 2b dispatched
all the good dispatchers and drivers move on to better jobs asap. they let there dispatchers treat the drivers like garbage and if anyone ever accuses you of something they dont ask you or even investigate they just write you up. safety isnt important all the trailers are beat up cuz guys hit things all the time and dont report it. Mauston has a great – more... terminal manager and dispatching but they are always sick of fighting with bolingbrook and fixing there screw ups. job runs smoothly as long as you dont have to deal with bolingbrook at all. the dispatchers and managers arent managed themselves. benefits are terrible, can never get a day off,ur not appreciated,turnover rate must be 45% plus. only thing thats kept me here over a year is the manager in mauston is a great boss. a former driver who knows what you really do for a living and is always there for you. this company wastes more profit in a month than my former company wasted in a year just with terrible upper management. – less
Heavy machinist certified (Former Employee), Rincon, GA – August 31, 2013
Pros: co-workers, breaks, lunch, work
A typical day was 7pm to 7am. Usually a non stop day depending on the load. I learned their WMS system. From shipping, receiving, inventory, and warehousing. I loved my co- workers. They made the job worth coming to. We were a family. The hardest part was the rush. When we had a heavy load there is no time to stop. Restroom breaks become a dream. The – more... most enjoyable part is the fact that we were like a family. We did things together even outside the job. – less
