Better than horrible, but hardly good.
Pros: light industrial truck training in almost every forklift type there is.
Cons: pay, management clings to their 'little empires', advancement is all about who you know.
I was in IC during my time at adidas, and its fair to say that this is actually a review of TFE Logistics who is contracted by adidas to handle the day to day operations of the Distribution Center.
It is also fair to say that my overall experience at TFE was not terrible, I made a few friends there that i still speak with and generally i did not dislike – more... my job. but overall this is not a good place to work. the pay is incredibly low for most positions, even management positions compared to other Warehouse/DC jobs. management opportunities are largely about who you know, not what you know. and there is a huge culture of distrust within senior management because they are trying to cling to that little control they actually have. if you smoke they are very anti smoker and you wind up standing in the street or riding around in your car if you want to get one. also having a cellphone on your person and having someone catch you with it is a terminable offense. its a large facility, and if something were to happen to you, it might be hours before someone actually finds you.
I was actually let go due to absences because my supervisor did not give my paperwork from the hospital to HR. i will say that HR did in fact try to reverse the decision at corporate in atlanta after finding that out, but ultimately that was too late. the biggest reason i think this oversight took place was due to what i said above, if supervisors feel like their little grasp of power was threatened, they will find a way to get rid of you. so it is possible to be too good at what you do for them.
My suggestion is to anyone going to work here is to get trained in driving the power equipment. its the only major benefit for working here. if you get certified to drive the forklifts they have, it will make you more marketable to the warehouse positions that pay better. – less
