Maintenance Manager/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Mira Loma, CA – February 8, 2017
Fast paced work environment with a lot of room for advancement. Will give you as much overtime as you can handle.if you're not afraid of hard work and looking for somewhere to advance this is the place to go.

The team leader thinks he owns your soul and the Manger is like his little minion, allowing this team leader to be the tyrant he is. Don't even think about complaining about this verbally abusive team leader because that only makes things worst for you. There is not a single person that you can talk to about trying to improve your situation. Do yourself a favor and get a different job.

Lifting pallets can get tired some but the forklift driver helps alot ..after a while they will train you on the forklift.And the work starts to get easier.sorting pallets is a work out light one its not a hard job.

Propak was very quick paced and a little undrepaid for the labour. Overall a nice job with opportunities for overtime. Long shifts and awkward hours depending on the shift. You are also in Walmarts warehouse.

I'm hourly and I do get paid holiday and PTO also have medical. So if your going to wright a review don't lie to people. You want hours and make good money here a place for you if your lazy don't bother.
Poor training, high expectations, holds out on pay
Pallet Builder (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – June 19, 2016
The training consisted of shadowing several guys with each having their own interpretation on the quality standards for the pallets. Gave new hires the worst pallets with the expectations of building at the same rate as seasoned employees. The organization was a joke, didn't receive the safety tutorial until 3 weeks after I was hired and already working in the warehouse. Did not pay me for my last week of work. Avoid this company.
Fork Truck Operator (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – May 11, 2016
Worked there as a forklift driver for about a year and a half and mostly liked it. The pay was OK but nothing great. I was making $13 an hour which was enough for beer money and to pay my car note so I can't really complain. Had to occasionally work overtime on Saturdays which is the reason I left. The supervisor was pretty easy to communicate with, it seems that he actually cared about his people. The former supervisor was horrible, would not even resolve employee complaints. Overall a decent company but not a career job.
The job wasn't hard.just standing in one spot all day.basically the job is folding auto parts crates and stacking them up.super easy and super boring.they say its not a quota but that's a lie.if u do X amount one day they expect you to do more then next day and so on.this is a job for a person that needs some income to help make ends meet until a better opportunity comes or supplemental income.fair pay for the work you do not enough maintain a household.
standing all day on concrete with work boots, boring, no advancement opportunities

I worked there for one month and during that time I was getting 34-36hr a week the insurance was very expensive and 75% of the employee's did drugs Walmart employees looked down on propak probably because of the culture and history of drug use by the employees. The past sucks and the work is unsafe. I'm sure 95% of the employees don't realize the health risks due to the pesticide's they spray all over the pallets.
Propak logistics is a great company to work for if you are starting out in the supply chain field. Working in logistics sales is fun and rewarding once you start landing new customers. Propak is similar to other brokerage sales companies like CH Robinson, Coyote, Nolan, Echo, Etc except they are asset-based (you will learn to love that term once you start a logistics sales role). Co-workers are great and always get along. It is definitely a team environment even though you are trying to best the person you are sitting next to. I would say the hardest part of the job is finding the trucks to match up to your available freight. Propak is rapidly expanding their technology to help my prior statement. The most enjoyable part of working at Propak is seeing the growth of the company in the short time I have been employed there and knowing that I played a part in the growth. The company has outgrown our current office and will be moving to an entire floor at the L&C Tower in downtown Nashville. Working in downtown Nashville is fun and is a major plus! I would recommend friends and family to apply here.

Forklift Driver/ pallet sorter/pallet repair (Current Employee) – West Sacramento, CA – December 8, 2015
walk stretch and get to work we made sure we unloaded and loaded or production for the day. I learned how to sort pallets with 100% quality how to load and unload trailers how to stack pallets correctly.
Pallet Sorter (Former Employee) – West Valley City, UT – August 3, 2015
sorting pallets full of Vegetable crates by Brand and type. the environment was hot, the Air conditioning failed and they would not repair it, it no air circulation, the facility sorted and repaired pallets also and the entire place had a thick haze of dust in it, they did not provide respirators. the forklift drivers sped thru the facilities at unsafe speeds, there were 3 forklift accidents while i was there 2 months. there was not really any enjoyable part of this position
