I was there for almost ten years and had four job titles in two different departments. Being a big company there's room to move around and try new things. I learned a lot about the wholesale business, in house marketing planning and administration, logistics and inventory management.
Vendor Perks., Pay, Benefits., Fortune 500 company
Favoritism, office politics, and unqualified first line managers.
Low pay, long hours, lazy co-workers, bad management
Warehouse Clerk (Former Employee) – South Bend, IN – March 2, 2018
I was one of the quicker and more skilled employees there that could float between multiple departments. My productivity was electronically rated and I constantly made 120%. There was no raises given out while employed 3 years. The conveyor system constantly broke down, forced to work solo in areas "zones" that were specified "team lift" areas. If you asked for repeated help and would not follow orders Tech Data would phase you out and fire you. Extremely taxing on the body. Prison like facility with lizard people admin and lazy warehouse workers who get promoted to higher positions for being incapable and stupid.
Senior Logistics Center Manager (Former Employee) – Groveport, OH – February 26, 2018
If you are willing to grow and also to put in the desired hardwork, you will get that growth. I quickly had the growth I wanted by putting in the required effort which went recognized by the senior management of the logistics center.
• Captured new clientele and advanced customer relationships through engagement as a sales, customer service and logistics liaison with vendors such as Cisco, Vmware, Microsoft, HP, Symantec and IBM • Executed daily sales, consisting of inbound and outbound calls/e-mails in a extremely fast paced, competitive sales environment • Excelled to specialized diamond and premier sales teams as my rapport and business margins advanced with my clientele • Led a five-member team and was responsible for client relations, customer service, logistical analysis, administrative reports, West Coast regions’ price deviations, and achievement of a $45 million annual revenue goal
Overall the people and company is great! Recent management was import for competitor and the management style and leadership went WAY DOWN! New management is taking a successful culture and process and changing it to show they are the "smartest in the room" and its not a true cultural fit. Limiting advancement and anyone that questions their authority. Would I recommend working their, yes if you have the right manager! It can and will be a great place to work again, once this experiment is over.
Associate (Current Employee) – Fontana, CA – February 12, 2018
Basically, if your manager likes you they will cover for you, promote you, advance you, etc. If they don't like you, everything you do is wrong. This is why they keep losing people every couple of months.
Healthcare sucks. Can't leave sidewalk when on break. Management is very two faced
Extreme Networks Field Account Manager (Former Employee) – Clearwater, FL – February 7, 2018
Great people and a great place to work. Downside, most vendor lines positions are funded by the manufacturers, not Tech Data, so if the manufacturer does not renew the head count funding, or changes the rolls, if no immediate availability to migrate to another role, you will be laid off. Other than that, great company and many excellent managers and employees. Benefits are good, not excellent, but the environment on the Product Marketing side is awesome, sales side, hit or miss.
