Great for someone new to warehouse operations with some past computer experience.
Physical Asset Team & Vault Clerk (Current Employee) –  Camarillo, CAAugust 14, 2018
I cannot review Office and Sales because I work in the warehouse aspect of this company.

As long as you follow the rules it's quite simple, lead gives you an assignment and you do what is asked.

Atmospherically this is a fantastic opportunity for someone seeking full time work with little to none warehouse experience.

Everyone is friendly and social, with a relaxed but respectable business hive mind, working together is essential to get the job done.

The hardest part of the job is lifting boxes that can sometimes weight more than 50lbs, carts and pallet trucks are available.

The most enjoyable aspect of the job is not only the social experiences that we share with each other example: BBQ lunch day, home cooked meals and the odd box of doughnuts the boss brings in but the enjoyable aspect of this company is knowing your working within a high end Hollywood environment.
Pros
Excellent Management and Excellent Benifits
Cons
Minumin wage and no Job Security/Advancement

Transportation Account Manager for Universal (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNAugust 13, 2018
The company mostly is supportive of employees.

but hourly employees are needed to work mandatory weekends.
Leadership is forced to work weekends, long hours and can lead to turnover of experienced staff.
Pros
well paid

The work environment varies a lot depending on the location and your level within the company.
ENGINEER (Former Employee) –  Camarillo, CAAugust 7, 2018
Technicolor is a big company with several business units at different locations. I had the opportunity to visit several of them in the US and Europe. The work environment varies a lot depending on the location and your level within the company. In some locations, the atmosphere is open and more relaxed. It feels like everyone is working together to move the company forward. In other locations, particularly on the manufacturing side, the company is far stricter. There are strict behavior and dress codes. Once you get to know the people at those sites better, it is not unusual to hear them complaining about the company or resentful. It feels like that it is just an 8-to-5 job. The Camarillo facility used to be one of those sites. The company does not give the individuals the flexibility or motivation to grow. It is a vertical structure where the decisions are made at the top with no input from the lower levels and enforced by the middle management. People are motivated by fear and forced into silos. The upper management, as usual, has all sorts of perks and benefits. Profit was achieved by cutting jobs and not by developing new ideas or teams. The compensation was fair and the benefits were not bad.

Working as a line worker a lot
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNAugust 7, 2018
Picking DVD's for customers from the line

Make sure the order was correct

Management looked over our shoulders a lot

Workplace culture was a little unfair

The hardest part of the job is standing in one place all day

The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that I've fullfilled customer's orders for them
Pros
Getting off early
Cons
No air contitioning

Not a good place to work
Cycle Technician/Forklift/Inventory Operator (Former Employee) –  Livonia, MIJuly 29, 2018
This place took quite a bit of my time. They paid you just enough not to leave, but not enough to stop you from complaining. I got there and felt stuck.

Flexibility,mature work environment, great work culture
Production/Data Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, ALJuly 24, 2018
Technicolor was a great place to work!!!!!!! A typical work day usually last from 7-12 hours depending on amount of work. I have learned so much working at Technicolor how to be a great leader. My favorite leadership style is transformational however, sometimes I am authoritative. Management there is great - they care about you as a person and not just a number . The culture is great but the hardest part of the job is the long hours during seasonal peak but the most enjoyable of the job for me was working with international persons of all backgrounds and ages and sometimes people judge others but I learned people are people no matter where they come from. They all have feelings and lives the same as others. Thank you.!!!
Pros
Flexible work hours, short-term steady work
Cons
not permanent low pay compared to other industries

Shipping Dock Worker/Lead (Current Employee) –  Memphis, TNJuly 19, 2018
I managed to keep working at Tecnicolor despite the situations I’ve been unfortunately put in.Supervisors tend to not uphold their expectations and it’s even harder when you’re not able to get results from HR.

Hot environment, low pay

I did not like Technicolor
Picker (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNJuly 13, 2018
I had a horrible time with Technicolor. They were very rude. Acted as if they were caring people, but obviously they were not. I would not say that everyone would have a bad experience with Technicolor. I know that I did and I will NOT WORK FOR THEM EVER AGAIN.
