Order Picker (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – May 27, 2018
It was fun good pay only hard part was being a lady in a warehouse with slot of men who didn't see me as their equal. Management was pretty good at doing their best to resolve issues that may have come up.
Picker/dockman (Current Employee) – Portland, ME – February 6, 2018
I held the same job for 3 years. I performed above average, and received yearly below average raises. My coworkers around me threatened to quit in order to get raises. While I simply took a more traditional path of attempting to get a raise (hard work, asking politely), and received nothing. I had seniority over my coworkers who had the same job as me and made more than I did. My coworkers would also constantly call out of work and not show up, show up late every day and still received more raises than i did, because I didn't threaten to quit like they did
I worked with a supervisor who was unapproachable and almost impossible to work with. He was constantly in such a bad mood, I would go above and beyond to not talk to him. I couldn't approach him to ask work related questions. Again, another example of being rewarded for poor work performance, while I received nothing for good work performance.
The benefits were good, and my manager was a very friendly and relatively understandable boss. I also worked with many hard working people who i built lasting relationships with. The hours weren't terrible.
I was almost fired by the VP of the company one day for not abiding by a new safety rule implemented 10 minutes prior to the incident. My district manager had to beg for me to keep my job. Basically I was almost fired after 3 years of working there for making a one time, minor mistake. Terrible treatment of employees by upper management,
Good benefits, good boss, laid back work environment
poor pay, no upward mobility, very poor raises, inconsistent employee treatment, no recognition for superior contribution
Order Selector (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – July 17, 2017
Daily meeting with stretching , inspect lift grab load sheet and hope they gave you orders that allow you to meet their quota . Some weeks they ask for x amount of lines per hour others its x amount of lines total or percentage logged in ... very confusing and favors those that they choose to succeed Please help workers grow instead of put them down . Some type of management during night shift would help, its hard to manage your workers from your phone or hideing in the back all night
Order Picker/Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – Sumner, WA – March 28, 2017
I work nights and we always have issues keeping good employees. I love working here, and they have a great starting wage, $16/hr, but the only thing I have to look forward to with this company is going to day shift or becoming a driver. If you just want a good job with great benefits, plenty of overtime, and dont mind working LONG nights, this is the place. If you are looking for promotional opportunities within the company, this isn't what you want. Very easy and laid back workplace.
Benefits, Pay, Overtime
Lack of promotions, Overtime, lack of communication
Order Picker (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO 63146 – January 31, 2017
A typical day at Bunzl is a hard working day. I came in contact with many items I have never seen before and have seen what some stores order. Management was a struggle because of their outside problems. Supervisors would take their anger out on the workers and made me feel like they were going to fire me everyday. Workplace culture was good as co-workers we helped each other as much as possible. Hardest part of the job was picking up the really heavy boxes. Most enjoyable part of my job was knowing that I got all my work done without error.
Order picker (Former Employee) – Woodridge, IL – November 23, 2016
I worked on a Cherry picker picking product. Management and coworkers were OK. The hardest part of the job was loading pallets correctly. It took time to learn the heaviest products and lightest products. A correctly loaded pallet has heaviest product on the bottom and lightest product on the top. The warehouse was a collection of products placed haphazardly, so it took time to learn where the heavy products on the order were first, and build up the pallet from there.
Order Picker (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 10, 2016
A typical day at work consist of picking orders. I learned to drive a cherry picker. The co-workers were nice and good people to work with. the hardest part of the job was making sure boxes don't fall.
The people and management are friendly and easy to work with. Hard place to work at with shift supposed to be 4pm to midnight byt sometimes doesn't end until 5 or 6 am. Pretty fast paced, easy to follow tasks.
Order Selector (Former Employee) – NY – August 22, 2014
My career as a Order Selector began with a double jack and came to an abrupt halt with a double jack and in between found me picking at times on foot, on HI-LO, via forklift, by single jack, via hand jack, or cherry picker and clamp truck. Comrades for co-workers all picking for the same cause, at least on the surface. I learned to lead by action not by word which has a longer lasting impression. The hardest part of the job is coming to grips with, after picking thousands of pieces on what would seem like a perfect night only to find out that you've made one mistake that'll cost you. Psycologically foremost, financially by the weeks' end.
