Tool inventory
TOOL INVENTORY (Former Employee) –  Rialto, CAJuly 9, 2018
A typical day at work
open the trailer in the morning at 4:45 Am
get the tools ready for the workers
making sure to write worker name and last name
what tool is the worker taking
write the numbers of the tools besides his name.

I learned how to be very responsible for the tools
I learn every tool name
and how to used them
impact,drill,hammerdrill,holedrill bandsaw jigsaw

hardest part of the job
counting all tools every day to make sure we had them back and working 12 hrs 7 days a week sometimes

the most enjoyable part of the day was talk learning something new everyday.

"Old school" company trying to adapt to modern market
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIMay 28, 2018
Dematic is a storied company in Grand Rapids, starting as the Rapids-Standard conveyor company (later Rapistan). Several changes in management have occurred in the last decade, leading to some turbulence in executive management.
At this point it almost seems like Dematic has more Vice Presidents than engineers.

If you want to travel a ton, but get compensated well for not having any home or family life, Dematic might be the place for you
Pros
Travel bonus for engineers, Tuition reimbursement, Onsite gym, Cafeteria, Friendly coworkers
Cons
Poor decision-making at the highest levels

High turnover.
They offer some great training and opportunities in certain areas of the company, like project managers, and engineers. Tuition Reimbursement is a nice benefit.
Pros
Company Perks, my supervisor
Cons
Low pay, people not being accountable for their complete job duties, but being rewarded for it

Difficult Work Environment
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXApril 30, 2018
I was part of a smaller startup acquired by Dematic. Poor integration into the larger organization. The company has lost a number of valuable employees due to limited direction and insight in running a software company.
Pros
Free snacks, decent benefits, smart and dependable employees
Cons
Poor work life balance. Resource contraints

Indecisive and Blind Leadership
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 5, 2018
Working at one of the company's remote locations, you are guaranteed to not be considered in any management decisions from corporate. Leadership talks about change and innovation, but all ideas are met with "No, this is how we do it here" from the corporate folks.
Pros
Relaxed WFH policy
Cons
Micromanagement, Indecisiveness, low pay compared to market, benefits not in line with other software companies.

Not A Healthy Environment
Manager (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIFebruary 11, 2018
Personal morals and professional ethics are disregarded when it comes to daily business operations. I was forced to choose between doing what was right and doing what was best for the company.....pretty lousy spot for a boss to put their employee. Needless to say, I quit.

The leadership at Dematic is, of course, concerned about profits. I can't blame the leaders, but in their pursuit of the highest yields, they step all over the very folks who gave them the opportunities in the first place. Employees are often pushed so hard that they either quit or become depressed. The excitement of learning new things is lost at Dematic. Innovation is only looked at positively when huge profits can be made...often shorting the customer in the process.
Pros
I learned a lot about the effects of toxic leadership, How an employee grows to resent their supervisor in the process.
Cons
Toxic environment initiated and sustained by leaders at all levels.

Great company depending on location
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHJanuary 20, 2018
Dematic has numerous locations as well as remote positions. For the most part they are a great company to work for. They pay well, they have great benefits. It was only at the particular location I worked at where the manager was back stabbing and cut throat so that he poisoned the entire team. Some of the safety requirements were a bit over the top. It was to the point where the safety protocols actually hinder you from doing your job.
Pros
Really great benefits
Cons
Should look more outside the company for team managers rather than always promoting from within.

Interesting to say the least
Dock Worker (Current Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIJanuary 16, 2018
Lots of good people, but the Factory is moving to Mexico. The office is not, and moving into the office from the Union shop isn't done very often. I do like working with our EHS&S people.
Pros
Free lunch at Christmas
Cons
Not much in the event department

Dematic is a good place to work. My colleagues are friendly and the work is challenging and fulfilling. It also has a laid back office culture but is still very productive.

It used to be a good company up till about ten years ago, but the upper management for some reason doesn't like their employees, it's a multi billion dollar company that just keeps trying to take more and more money and benefits away from their employees!
Pros
Used to be a good place to work
