Retail Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Forest, VA – January 7, 2016
Working on retail accounts is a lot of trial by error, as well as building relationships that can stand the test of time. Networking skills are a plus in this working environment. Procurement to distribution, xpedx requires all types of business models.
National company with local presence allowing one to manage their business based on their market.
VP General Manager (Former Employee) – Stone Mountain, GA – January 4, 2016
Being part of International Paper allowed xpedx to expand and invest in the areas needed to drive growth. Management was supportive and looked to empower their employees while keeping the corporation's values at the forefront.
Large international company
Heavily waited in printing papers while the consumer was going digital
xpedx gave me a very nice package to go away. The truth of the matter is, the printing industry has been on a down slide for years. It was just a the right time for xpedx to remove themselves from there printing program.
Being owned by International Paper ment a stable employer.
Have been with company for over 14 years. Went through merger in July 2014. New Management needs a lot of work. Flexibility is being taken away, which is one of the things I loved most about working for xpedx.
Used to be flexible, free items
Healthcare cost & coverage, flexibility in schedules/hours
National Cost Analyst, Replenishment Buyer (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – July 3, 2015
I worked at this company for 15 years and always enjoyed the people I worked with. Corporate management decided my department would be better off being based in a different city despite the talent that was already in place.
Product Information Coordinator II (Current Employee) – Loveland, OH – June 18, 2015
It's been a wonderful career with xpedx. I have learned many skills, technical, personal and professional. Almost feel like it's time to move on. The company merged with its main competitor one year ago, was hoping to see more direction by now. Some employees know exactly what their position is, others may still be in a somewhat "gray" area. Seems like the communications have come to a sudden halt
Most people are very caring
The company has lost focus on the people, lack of communication
Unorganized warehouse but otherwise friendly people
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Coppell, TX – June 17, 2015
A typical day at work for me is getting there on time, clocking in and cleaning my aisle and then pulling orders with the cherrypicker. What I learned is that its a lot of hard work because of the heat. My co workers are cool we joke and talk to each other. The hardest part of the job is lifting the heavy boxes. The most enjoyable is lunch time.
SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – April 27, 2015
I've enjoyed my time at Xpedx. I learned excellent team work and leadership skills from coworkers and managers/supervisor. All safety rules I learned at Xpedx have gotten me recognized quickly by other employers I worked for. I have Xpedx to thank for molding me into a great worker. Although production has slowed down since the company's merger in June 2014, but if more projects do arrive in the future I would surely make Xpedx a first choice to come back to.
Purchasing Coordinator (Current Employee) – West Valley City, UT – April 13, 2015
I love my job and the management here. I gave benefits 3 stars because I haven't had the opportunity to have their benefits because I'm hired on with a temp agency, and have been for over a year now. They have wanted to hire me on permanent, however we are going through a transitioning to being a new company called 'Veritiv'. If I can, I will stay here and pursue my career. I have learned a lot about business and purchasing. We all work together to make this business work successfully. You never stop learning things here, and that's the cool part. It's one of the greatest job experiences I've ever had.
Flexible, professional, and awesome learning experiences.
Not being able to be permanent yet because of the transition.
Product Information Coordinator (Current Employee) – Edwardsville, KS – March 29, 2015
Company is going through many changes since they merged with Unisource. No communication and morale is low. People are either overworked or have nothing to do. Not a happy place and most people are dissatisfied with how things are going. Benefits and pay are okay.
I do mostly collections. I interact well with the customers, and sales representatives. Co- Workers are great. I get a long with everyone here. We brainstorm a lot with each other, on how to solve every day problems in the finance world.
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) – Willow Grove, PA – March 23, 2015
Working for Xpedx allowed me to strengthen my skills in various areas. I became certified in using a power jack and forklift. In addition, i become more efficient in all Microsoft Office programs. I continued to execute great customer service and supported all vendors and partners in business. Overall, my experience with Xpedx had been beneficial to growth; it did not however, provide job security.
Shift Lead (Current Employee) – Kent, WA – March 19, 2015
We typically have about two hundred orders to fill on any given night. Sometimes it is upwards of three hundred. We work closely with paper by doing custom orders to customer specification as well as fulfilling orders of industrial products. We are also a supplier of tape for Boeing and supplier of various shipping products of all sizes.
All night nonstop work requires decent physical ability
There is also this black dust that is on everything and will get on anything if left in warehouse. Has caused me many headaches and nose bleeds since I have started working there.
Management is there but not there at the same time. Some are getting high in tenure and are on a "coasting" mode. They do the job enough to get the job done and there are times where they do not focus fully on what needs to be done with routing and can cause issues with loading due to over cubing. Also they are nearly impossible to get a hold of when complex issues arrive that must be decided by them. They are a direct impact on the apparent low morale. Warehouse personnel are low in priority when it come to fulfilling our needs.
My foreman is a pretty good guy. I enjoy working with him as he is a hard worker and willing to put forth effort to accommodate and be flexibility for personal issues and school schedules.
The Drivers are mostly nice hard working people who I have become friends with, but appear jaded and unwilling to be there.
The only real benefit to working here is the pay and the fact that we are Union.
low morale, little holiday time off if low on tenure
