Great staff, great management team, excellent customers.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Ontario, CAMarch 12, 2014
Pros: exel offered a lot of opportunity for growth.
Cons: the company moved back to los angeles county.
Exel offered a lot of opportunity for growth I started in scheduling then later cross trained to learn dispatch, receiving, and training new associates. My management team was one of the best to work with very positive motivating and knowledgeable. My co-workers and I worked well as a team and always met and exceeded our deadlines. The hardest part – more... of the job was learning the delivery zones which later I created a sheet categorizing the zones to help with that learning curve. The most enjoyable part of the job was the opportunity for growth and interacting with great customers. – less

Long work days, sometimes 12 hrs but rewarding work.
Customer Service Rep/Receiver (Former Employee), Brantford, ONFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: working with a great team
Cons: long hours caused no time for the gym
My day started at 7:00 am, receiving containers and other trucks, created, verified and closed Inbound receipts. Received all trucks coming into and out the yard. Kept an updated carrier log.
Created and updated spreadsheets so that management could access needed info for all inbound loads. Took care of all inbound emails including research. Helped – more... the outbound girl when needed.
Self taught this position since this is a fairly new establishment. Management changed often. Co-workers were great. We made a great team to get the job done. The hardest part of the job was working with no management support and seeing staff coming and going. Enjoyed the long hard work with the co-workers and completed the day with all chores finished.. It felt great!
This was a contract job. My employer was Randstad. – less

Management have no idea how to run warehouse
Material Handler (Current Employee), Mississauga, OntMay 18, 2013
Pros: free food sometimes
Cons: no airconditioning hot hot in summer. dusty
Workload varies from a lot to a little or nothing. When workload is extreme they expect miracles for little pay. Hard to get permanent status. Co-workers ok. Supervisors clueless. Don't know how to organize or run a warehouse. A lot of repeated stock movement to new locations misplaced inventory.

Good Work Environment
Material Handler (Current Employee), mississauga, ontSeptember 5, 2012
Pros: employees
Cons: little room for promotion
Having worked in Exel for approximately two years, i must say that it is a decent company to work for. the employees are close knit and look out for each other and upper management is approachable. the work load is steady through out the month, but at months end, there is an influx, and one has to work at double the speed and sometimes extra hours (voluntarily) – more... to meet and/ exceed the quota. – less

a typical day at work is picking products from the shelves. I learned how to organize my products in the pallet. the management cares about their employees, which, is good.the co-workers are helpful to new employees. the hardest part of the job is working in the freezer and the most enjoyable part of the job is picking.

Busy work environment will learn marketable skills
Supervisor (Former Employee), TorontoAugust 29, 2012
Pros: will learn marketable skills at the clerical or other office level
Cons: very demanding when you are salary, long work days and weekend work in order to keep up with customer demand
Past Salary Employee/ Supervisor Canada-not a good blend of work and family time. very demanding, and do not try to calculate an hourly wage if you factor in all the late nights, weekend work.You will be disappointed
However, you can really develope some marketable skills for when you leave. Canadian operations has very little growth so opportunities – more... for advancment is very very limited. – less

poor management
driver (Former Employee), Rochester NYAugust 23, 2014
Pros: good meals at orientation
Instead of doing orientation, we spent half of the time moving equipment. I was told to take a semi truck to Buffalo with another driver, and then I was told to go home after that. A semi tractor was assigned to me, so I went home with the semi truck. The next day I got a call that I was supposed to take a straight truck instead, and I was being fired – more... because of it. I felt I was being used as a scapegoat for somebody's mistake, definitely poor management. Don't quit your job for this company, don't trust them. – less

Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Leipsic,OhioAugust 18, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: not tempature controlled warehouse and 12 hour days
Exel is a warehouse distribution center. It is a 3rd party logistics company hired by then P&G (now Mars Corp.) to run its Iaams Pet Food Distribution Center.

A typical day included getting our assignments at the daily morning meeting. Going out and checking our towmotors for any problems, completing a monthly forklift check list.

then depending on – more... what you were assigned to do ask the dock coordinator for an assignment.

I learned to pull together as a team when times dictated it and to work independently when was needed.

hardest part of the job was working 12 hour days.

most enjoyable part was the co-workers i got to work with. – less

Management is lacking skills to due the job right. Exel hires kids right out of school who have never worked to be supervisors. They don't know how to talk to there people or treat them.
