Senior Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Valencia, CA – April 14, 2018
I've worked at Cardinal Health (warehouse) for over a dozen years plus, I've seen it at it lowest point to it's current state. The position is highly stressed due to metrics and policies to be followed completely however their is a problem with favoritism. A typical day is clocking in, a routine stretch, and then to your work stations to begin. There are metrics you must meet on a daily basis, weekly basis, monthly basis, and a yearly basis. There is no scheduled "quitting time". My shift begins at 6:00 am and ends when all the freight is received, stocked- customer returns are processed and stocked. The time can vary depending on how much freight is received, how many employees have called out, and how many are in training. the goal is in 8 hours however it's usually 9-10 hours a day with overtime pay. The Supervisors are not trained properly on how to deal with these issues and creates stress on the employees who are present and working. There are 2 Daytime shifts, Sunday- Thursday and Monday-Friday. There is a Night Shift that has these two shifts as well. The Night Shift is responsible to fill orders for Customers the next morning. The most enjoyable part of the job are the employees who work there, they are good people.
You do not know when your shift ends on a daily basis/ too many more to list.
