Sales Contract Administrator in Oakland, CA
on November 1, 2019
I was grateful for the knowledge and career advancements. It is clearly a color thing you are paid at different rates, all are not treated equally. There is a lot of favoritism. If you can look over those facts, GSC is a good place to work for those that fit in. they supply snacks/lunch in the kitchen, yearly bonus and raise, company Christmas parties.

Work / life balance is great, management is great, office vibes are great and I enjoy the tasks assigned to me. GSC is fair to staff and allows you as the employee to be engaged with customers in meetings. You pretty much take ownership and are not micromanaged.

A typical work day is having a problem before you clock in. Work around the clock because the rates for drivers are so low, they skip opportunities to go work somewhere else. Work from home training is dismal, which is why this job posting is up on Indeed every 3 months.
Desktop Support Specialist in Oakland, CA
on July 30, 2021
Overall Rating: (Desktop Support Specialist)My rating is quite critical, given that I have a strong, diverse technical and business background. Though the benefits of being self-critical can be argued, I have high expectations of myself and through screening and interviews, project greater expectations of my leadership and management. Unfortunately, the vast majority of my expectations around planning, logic and data-driven decision making have been largely failed.Job Work / Life Balance:A typical day in IT can be incredibly stressful. This is not necessarily due to the nature of the work itself. IT can be quite enjoyable if conducted and administered properly. Documentation efforts are disorganized and, in general, poor. Information that should be transparent or have an effect on other's work and development is often left in the stratospheres of people's heads. This has generated tremendous and systemic flows of process inconsistency and failure across the organization. The overall mentality is to spot fix, fire fight and apply Occam's Razor to most problems without good consideration and foresight into preventive and corrective action. This has led to problems shoved to the background eventually proliferating into serious issues, until effects of negligence forces relevant stakeholders to be actionable. The overall nature of work is incredibly reactive rather than proactive. You are often quite disappointed if you have a work ethic centered on continual improvement, strong customer service, root cause analysis and proper planning. Though we are now restricted to 8 hours rather than 12 to save the company money, it has only mitigated our efforts effectively solve problems with even less time; when before, in overtime, there still wasn't enough time due to deleterious and poorly generated processes. The 7 wastes are illicit to business success, yet they are tremendous here.Compensation and Benefits:My compensation is approximately $52,000/yr , the national average for my position by the median is $64,000/yr , the median pay for Oakland, CA where I work is $76,000/yr. I am therefore by a geographically local and national standard distribution, grossly underpaid even considering the health and insurance benefits I don't need or elect, given I am a veteran with VA healthcare.Job Security/AdvancementAt this time, there is no personal development plan, no employee review or a communicated intention that there will ever been anything like this implemented in the future. There is no indication there is room for advancement, pay raises have not been discussed and with the turnover rate at the organization, I do not feel secure in my work given the history of behavior at the company not being able to reconcile downward fluctuations in the niches of logistics markets.ManagementI wanted to placate the apperception of being rude here... but honesty is more important. All management needs to be properly educated on how to be managers. They have either forgotten good management practice, or never knew it in the first place. Whimsical, reckless and reactive for over 30 years, the company has barely survived. Even with a new president, the visibility of him is low, opaque and distant. Most executive management except a few have big ideas that they have no idea how to plan. They push down directives without planning which have substantially detrimental effects on the organization. Reckless behaviors and antics like this are contributed to "growing pains", though it is adamantly clear those pains are the result of poor choices and, at best, lackluster decision making.Job Culture:People are overall, very kind. On occasion, lunch is provided for you. There are monthly "shout-outs" to recognize employees who have gone above and beyond, where they are given a $100 gift card. It is a good attempt at the social aspects and engineering of the workplace, but that same energy needs to be interpolated into the actual work culture. There is no kindness is micromanaging, and there are very few instances where is it critically necessary.
Dispatch Coordinator in Oakland, CA
on July 6, 2021
I thought this would be a great place to work however I quickly learned that the management here are extreme gatekeepers who keep people locked out of any kind of decision.. obviously management has the responsibility to make decisions in the best interest of the company but I was chastised quite badly for offering my opinion on a few subjects which were closely related to my job function and my experience. The people there play favorites with employees, IE - your idea could be a steaming pile of s**t but if your someone they like then you're good.. where as I was a FNG and new to this company, made some propositions (which were solicited btw) and was basically told to go sit in the corner and don't interrupt the big guys... pathetic excuse for a logistics company
