No pay raises at all...
Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) –  Woodland, CAMarch 21, 2019
Always have OT, and they don’t ask if you want to stay they make you stay. You’re not moving up unless you speak Spanish, which it’s not fair because this is America. Not Racist at all, but Spanish is what they mostly speak on the radios there. You can be a Temp a long time before they hire you, but the job is kind of easy. Oh and No Pay Raises At all...
Pros
No pros at all...
Cons
Always OT every day...

Logistics Analyst (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZFebruary 22, 2019
This company isn't worth your time. The only 1 thing they have nice is flexibility but that depends on your associate manager.

Anything else you can think is bad - tedious process, tiresome company, favoritism prevails, salary sucks, Management sucks, processes suck, peers are socially good but their work ethic isn't.

So, if you are not an ambitious person and literally just want a job, don't care about what you do and if you are providing any value or not, APLL is the place.
Pros
Maybe flexibility
Cons
Everything

Apart from low hourly rate paymen, the management is good.
2) Forklift Driver / Pallet jack operator (Former Employee) –  Lithia Springs, GAJanuary 21, 2019
The hourly rate payment given to temporary staff is poor, apart from this factor mentioned above the management is good and they don't discriminate between temporary and full employees staffs as they treat everybody equally. The management occasionally motivate staffs so as to be more productive.
Pros
Good motivation in form of gift given to best 3 performed staffs seasonally.
Cons
Poor hourly rate payment to temporary staffs, compare to full time workers.

Do you have 24 hours to listen and to read everything? The only way to get ahead is if you stay in the faces of the managers. Just apply and you will see.
Pros
None

Too many

Great company to work with even though need wrinkles to be iron out and promote within.
They should promote more opportunities to growth to all employees and not just management.

Import and Export Operations Specialist (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZNovember 19, 2018
Management is very poor - they say all the right things but never follow through. If you arent a "favorite" - good luck. There is sexual harassment, violence, targeting, hostile work environment, lack of training, etc. If you are interested in logistics, you get just about everything here. The work isnt bad at all, its the management.
Pros
interesting, busy, fast paced
Cons
terrible management, favoritism, heavy workload
