needs to train employees better and offer advancement opportunities to all employees
WAREHOUSE ASSOCIATE/DRIVER (Former Employee) – Dothan, AL – November 6, 2018
FleetPride is a decent company. However, the Dothan, AL location needs to hire based on work experience and work history instead of hiring an applicant based on who they are related to. I know FleetPride Corporate has policies preventing family members from working at the same location. I would not waste time applying with this company unless you're related to an active employee or you're good friends with someone who is. Management is very slack, you cannot depend on them to back you up. The customers are great!
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – October 12, 2018
Been here 5 years, got one raise (if you could even call it that) I get 3 sick days, vacation time is laughable, paycheck ISN'T worth the time I'm putting in. Only reason I haven't left yet is because no body is hiring. Seriously, not even $11 an hour are you kidding? For 5 years? No, no, not when others are starting out at nearly $13 and up. no. Do yourself a favor and find somewhere else to work.
Overtime when you get it.
sink or swim environment, been injured twice, NO advancement, NO raises, weak leadership, rotating door on the personel, bosses play favorites, did I mention NO RAISES?!?!
If the branch was run by the branch manager then there wouldn’t be such a high turnover. The warehouse manager is an extreme micro manager. You will be watched and monitored with every thing you do in the warehouse, with deliveries, breaks, where your at in the warehouse(you can’t be alone anywhere). You will not be allowed to go up to the front counter for any reason other than picking parts. The Warehouse manager has a outburst temper and will explode on you if you mess up or don’t do something your asked to do under time limits you may not be able to complete. Be expected to be treated like a child if you mess up, you will be punished if you forget something or if you stand up for yourself. Manager is a “do I as say, not do as I do” type of manager.
Pro is Monday through Friday, sometimes they have breakfast and lunch.
Free lunch when it’s available, Monday through Friday
Micro Management, expensive insurance, fear of job security
Parts Counter Representative (Former Employee) – Peoria, IL – September 1, 2018
Loved my job at FleetPride. I was treated with respect, patients, and trained to advancement My coworkers were very knowledgeable, Very kind and couteous,. They all assisted me and showed me a lot about parts and resources , Corporate is very helpful, plenty of advancement available if you apply yourself, and work hard and can relocate . I highly recommend a career with FLEETPRIDE , I started as a parts counter sales , and before I decided to leave was offered several advanced positions
AP ANALYST (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – August 7, 2018
There were no advancement opportunities. The new system Transcepta was not working well and caused the workload to get far behind.
There seemed to be a quite a bit of turnover.
There is a tremendous receiving problem of new purchases with most all of the branches out in the field. FP has about 300 branches. I worked in AP. We were getting about 30 credit holds a day with no new ordering of products. Management did not care in the least and it was never addressed and not even to this day. It made it impossible to keep the statements clean and current.. Still management did not care and you were expected to do this.. I guess from an act of God. I never got to take breaks or lunches because the workload was SO far behind with so many unpaid accounts. I have been in AP for 30 years and this is the worse company that I have ever worked for... I am very very glad that I was laid off. I was sick every day worrying about going into work and what I would face... AP workers were blamed for messy accounts even though they would never address the receiving issues to pay invoices on time.. Glad I am gone.
don't mind the heavy lifting an theres quite a bit of that.. most customers expect you to unload at their facility, whether it was 5 lbs or 500 lbs without help.. insurance cost are absorbent, way to expensive, salary $12.00 per hour.. little advancement, getting supplies from corporate is a joke..
Warehouse Associate and Driver (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – May 4, 2018
I have a log history of working in warehouses...normally kept neat, clean and organized....unlike Fleetpride's warehouse in St. Louis, Missouri...besides being a very dangerous warehouse to work...with 1000's of pounds of stock (truck brake drums for example) are placed very high on racks....delivery vans and the box truck are normally overloaded with parts....there is no monitoring of weight limits nor proper securement of freight in them either.....I was also held accountable for other co-workers mistakes (filling pick tickets for out going shipments. When I was first hired....I received praise for my work not only from my manager but from my customers on my route (several of whom called into my Fleetpride branch to voice their opinions of me....one them said I was the best they encountered during the 8 years of business with Fleetpride....another customer called in to say... I was very caring and cordial.) I was terminated on 4-24-2018...they claimed their GPS system reported me speeding (50mph in a 30mph zone)... which is not true....I am not that careless. I will miss all the wonderful customers I had on route. I won't miss being held accountable for others mistakes and the dangers of overloads vans/box truck and the dangers within that warehouse itself.
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) – Grapevine, TX – September 19, 2018
This company is a joke. Managers don t even communicate with employees. No quality leadership at all. Favoritism is holding this company back. HR department can't answer any of your questions. No bonus program at all, no company events. Avoid this place at all cause. Put in a 2 weeks notice on Monday and was let go today. Little do they know, that was a big favor to me. Will terminate you for calling in if you don't have sick time. They only give you 80 hours of pto time, which is nothing. Worst place that I have ever worked for in my life.
Your coworkers make it worth working here. Management seems like they do things by the seat of they're pants.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Bolingbrook, IL – September 25, 2018
FleetPrided isn't a bad place to work at. If management was better along with a few other things. I would have stayed or even return to work there. My fellow coworkers made it worth going back everyday. The hours are long, and come to work busting your tail everyday for others to come in just to collect a paycheck.
One hour lunches, always have something to do. No reason to sit around
This is a Good Company to work for. Upper Management are very friendly. Co-workers are easy to get along with. Vacations are great. Good benefit package. You work hard, you get noticed. There's still more room to be Better among competitors.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Ontario, CA – September 5, 2018
High pace little reward. Employees are fun to work with, Management will do little to get you a pay increase, would rather see you leave then offer a good employee more money. expect less then .25 cents a year if your lucky. If you are a supervisor prepare to be over worked and yelled at.
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – Bolingbrook, IL – October 5, 2018
I like some of the people I work with because I have been working with them for years but I don't think they are fair I have been past over tor promotion I just feel like I'm going nowhere with the company o just want a charge
They have decent vacation day package and tight knit environment. A lot of turnover lately and changes within the company. Most people around there tend to be about themselves. Was a good place to start out career but not so much for long term advancement.
Outside Sales Rep (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – June 24, 2018
Everyday has its moments. As being in sales for the company I have a high quota to hit which does make the job stressful. Working with different vendors and customers in the heavy duty part industry at times can be overwhelming. The managers here are awesome. I am so proud to work with them as they treat everyone as equals and that no one is above anybody.
Pretty straight forward work nothing too difficult. Need to be comfortable Driving in any condition such as bad storms or heavy traffic. Heavy lifting is a HUGE part of your day everyday. All stock trucks are checked and counted by hand which can be very time consuming and inconvenient due to having to pull orders for customers all throughout the day. As far as being a driver the toughest part can be navigation. Some customers are not easy to find due to wrong addresses. Sometimes customers order more then you can carry in a load which creates a problem for other customers.
Good 8 to 5 hours with 1 hour break
A large amount of heavy lifting in a warehouse with no AC.
Driver/Warehouse (Current Employee) – Worcester, MA – February 17, 2018
Fleetpride is a good place to either get back into the work force or if you are just starting out. the management is very fair. The hours are reasonable. The more you do the better your raises each year.
