Lack of organization and communication. Pay is terrible for the job and advancing is not easy unless management "likes" you or you're sleeping with the supervisor. A lot of favoritism and the benefits are not great.
Pros
Hours were tolerable
Cons
Pay, management, organization

It was an easy job that didn't require much thought. Paid well and on time. It was a good job with diverse people and I liked the incentives they had for employees.

Being a Geodian was great. Management was always available and attentive. The work days would be long sometimes , they would give us a forecast of the work load for the day so we’d know what to expect . Geodis took care of their employees
Pros
Company provided lunch once a month
Cons
Long hours

Friendly work environment, fast paced and you have to be flexible and willing to adjust your schedule for the customer. Company will try and ensure the teammates are obtaining 40 or more hours per week. The raises are few and far between but the OT has been available throughout 2020, even with the pandemic. As long as you come to work, you will have a job..attendance is very important to the company. Peak season is very busy but fun, they incorporate activities during this period of time.
Pros
Friendly Work Environment
Cons

If you go above and beyond at your job do not ever expect fair compensation for it or a chance to move up. They will keep you in that position forever because they can.

Great people and easy to work with. They all worked together very nice with friendly and fair management. The work load would change weekly, with some weeks being really busy and some slow with little orders.
Pros
Unlimited water breaks
Cons
Short breaks

I worked as a forklift operator for the Receiving department. Great supervisor, really like my direct coworkers. Pay is decent for an operator position. Benefits are par for course, meh. I did not enjoy working under middle and upper management here, however. There's mandatory overtime, often with little notice, as others have pointed out. We got Christmas off, but had to work that weekend. Some people didn't get fourth of July off, some did, some had to work half the weekend, and no one was notified of what time they got off in a reasonable time frame. Stuff like that. There often seemed to be focus on odd things, definitely didnt feel like a priority to the company here. The only way to move up is through task coordinator>lead>supervisor>management roles, not a huge issue but there are a lot of people who've been part way up that chain for close to a decade, working hard for years. You can move up, mostly by coming in from the outside off of a business program. Overall, decent pay and easy job if you're in a good department. Not a great place to stick around forever, though
Pros
Decent pay, some departments great to work with, not hard labor
Cons
Time off, work life balance, middle and upper management

Geodis makes $3-$5 off of every hour every single worker works at any warehouse they advise over. Even through the pandemic. Benefits are a joke and cost over $100 a pay. oh and when you are hired on your pay is decreased due to you being offered these "benefits", even if you dont elect to have them at all your pay still drops. You are auto enrolled in 401k even if you dont want it. You cannot elect to opt out. If you want to you have to jump through hoops to make it stop and never get your money back. No communication, No coordination, every manager and director took their 2 week vacation during the pandemic (april-may) and left supervisors and workers high and dry
Pros
none
Cons
anything you can think of

Your job at this place is just that - a job. There is no acknowledgment for a job well done because management does not recognize the workers. They look for production and that is it. The team is treated poorly and over worked. Compensation is mediocre but the mental health of the employees is critical. There is low moral as there is no positive direction.There is also a safety issue at the warehouse on Pinnacle in Joliet IL. There is / was an employee that is threatening to harm other employees. When brought up to management and HR - staff was told it would be dealt with and this employee would be asked to leave. Employee came back and was allowed to work the next shift. That employee still threatening to harm others. Was reported again to HR - not too much insight on that next step as I left the company.You are not allowed to voice your opinion to management as they do not acknowledge your opinion. You will get fired or charged a point for having a concern with them as well. Staff that quits are replaced by individuals to act as "a body" without proper training or knowledge of how to do the job. This creates a safety issue for all of those around them. Procedures are not followed, OSHA guidelines are not adhered to and there are many "promotions" to people that are not a good fit for the company because of favoritism. Unless you are friends with upper management, you will always just be a "body" to that company.
Pros
its a paycheck, for what that is even worth
Cons
Hostility in the workplace, overworked, unskilled staff, long work weeks, negativity from management and much more

Everything here starts at the top and the plant manager negotiates extremely high bone grinding productivity goals with his contracts with tight schedules, & everyone is always getting in each others way trying to keep up because of limited space and equipment creating an incredibly unsafe work environment even though they constantly harp on safety, they never make their mangers enforce it because the production goal is so high that they just ignore unsafe work practices, particularly for people who have been there for while. New people are told to both be safe and work fast and when they inevitably cause an accident, they are fired. Meanwhile, you have to work around unskilled/unsafe people because the turnover rate is so high. The negotiated contracts seemingly don't even garner enough capital to maintain equipment & I'd say probably 50% of the racking is has broken welds, bent supports, sheared off bolts, & unsatisfactory markings. OSHA violations surely abound. It seems inevitable to me with the unsafe/unskilled workers and shoddy racking that the racking will collapse one day when someone hits it. The plant director is were a lot of the issues start and not only does he expect you to bend over backwards for him, making up for his bad contracts by working extremely hard and accurately (something I'm more than capable of doing) for average compensation he's a bully and expects you to completely agree with his perspective or he explodes in expletives on you without provocation. I'm honestly not shocked though since the guy was literally handed everything he ever had in his - more...
Pros
Lots of sick days.
Cons
Hostile work environment.

long hours,,, and days,,, poor managers,, company tells you overtime same day, sometimes when your ready to go home.. nasty break rooms, cant watch TV on break, just look at TV that views company rules in break area. very dirty in building, not that safe either. OSHA guild lines not kept, only when they comes to inspect company,and they know ahead. Most employees quit, its why they always need workers. GM workers do easier work and make 17.50an hour to start and better benefits, and they think 12.00-13.00 is big money, then its like .25 cent raise a year, if your lucky. Managers over paid, and don't care or do much, not much respect to workers either...In fact, its common to see fights in the building...
Pros
Mandatory overtime, if you call that good
Cons
Poor benefits, poor pay, poor managers, long hours, long week
