They mainly hire fork lift drivers, and you move up through the ranks every 6 months if you wish to do so.

This is a logistics company, your hired in as a fork lift driver, from there you can apply for different jobs every 6 months if you wish to do so. I loved my job there I retired after working there for 18 years. I was tired of the commute to Illinois.

All work, No play

During the interview process, they told me it was a rotating schedule, 3 on 3 off 4 on 4 off. They said every once in a while I might have to give up one of my off days to come in and help work over time.. we had two weeks of training where I actually worked my shift. Immediately following training I worked a minimum of 6 days a week, 12+ hours each day. I joined the company, thinking I was going to be able to spend more time with my family. That is the furthest thing from the truth. These guys run through so many people, that they end up telling you whatever it is you want to hear just to get you to take the job, so that they can work you like a mule until you physically can’t any more. Then they get rid of you and replace you with the next person to do the same thing to

Pros

Plenty of overtime if that’s what you’re looking for

Cons

Everything else

Horrible

Horrible, harassment, no advancement. Poor management One of worse places I've ever worked. Supervisor should be ashamed of their behavior. Human resources is useless.

Work Life balance/ Structure miss

The expanse of the logistics field and the growth opportunities make it a prime opportune place to work. Unfortunately with lack of structure and some opportunity with customer relations make for poor work life balance.

Avoid bad work environment

I worked there over year. Had a sister die and they told me i should planned for it and fired me for missing. Heartless company fire people for kicks. Managers harrass you Turn over rates insane. 95percent people hired dont make it past 2months go elsewhere you will hate it. No job security job career suicide here

LMS the new way to genocide personnel

This letter is to inform you of somewhat disturbing and perplexing matters which left unattended to will lead to unscrupulous behavior, which in turn will lead to a deterioration of the quality personnel, equipment, products and the company’s integrity. What matter am I speaking of (L.M.S) or logistic management system, a computerized system which was implemented to reduce personnel management system to a computerize one in order to track movement and production of one’s activities. L.M.S was developed on a basic principle of (time X distances X variable = a percentage %) and after this information is accumulated a number is given and a value is not only place on the day’s activities BUT ALSO a value is put on one’s individual worth to the company. Whether intentional or not the purpose of this is clear. To clean and dispose of the undesirable and replenish with more impressionable minds fitted to a one order concept " To conquer any obstacles by any means possible in order to fulfill a greater need". This type of propaganda may influence the naive that perceive it as a means to fulfill all my unrestrained financial and promotional desire while refusing to realize the carnage left behind by their pursuits. This too was very same concept used by ADOLF HITLER to genocide the racial, political, and cultural views of his time. Same system used by other area warehouse like Unilever/ Fed EX

Pros

yearly salary potential

Cons

turnover rate astronomical

its ok

i was only hired for putting stickers on dog/cat boxes otherwise they were unable to make room for me to stay after being there for a month. so the job they had me doing they knew it wouldnt last as long as they thought so it didnt exceed their expectations so i was let go due to the business needs of the job title.

Just need to work a lot of hours this is the place

Cogs in a machine, This place was not a fun place to work the hammer was always coming down deadlines were always tight and turnover was always high. Training was limited if you didn't already have familiar experience to pool from.

Supervisor

A bunch of kids. They did not know what they were doing half the time. The other half they were playing in the office or on the floor. The pay was not good for me. Passed up for opportunity that they offered.

Fast paced

12 hr work days You learn to be very careful and that your just number There training is 2 weeks but once you get to the floor its very different from what they say The lie from the beginning about its like working 6 months on and 6 months off. That isn't true. They say u get every other weekend off. That's true. The hardest part of the job is getting your numbers. They are all about your numbers but don't give you correct info about to correct it. Its pretty laid back over all. Just be ready to work all the time. Don't go in as a temp try and go in a direct hire if anything

Pros

They give a lot of OT if u like OT

Cons

U have no life out of the job, they use you and don't appreciate there workers your just a number, Very High turn over

fast paced

long 12 hr shifts, no communication between upper management and floor employees, safety isn't stressed enough, do the same job everyday they never let you do anything else, no advancement for most people (they pick who they want for upper level opportunities), poor pay compared to most, no bonus incentives for hard workers, don't give enough time off (fired after 6 days) and no way to make time up, no work life balance, its always about numbers

Pros

new facility

Cons

work most holidays, pressured to work overtime safety takes a back seat

good place to work

Its a hard place to work, fun at times, but child like games played by supervisors. Long hours but the pay is good. Promotions within, but very political. I would go back for I like fighting the games.

Pros

Pay is deposited in your account

Cons

Not much support from supervisors

Life at DB Schenker

Fantastic starting with great training. Trainers are extremely helpful and are there to answer any questions. Once your out on the floor for the first time it is really exciting. There is a lot going on, and so much to take in. Once you have learned the basics of your job, you are out on your own, which is nice.
