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

Enjoy the work I do, but this site is poorly managed. The general manager allows his supervisors to mistreat and harass the workers.
Forklift Operator (Current Employee), Mobile, ALApril 5, 2014
Pros: easy job, good pay if you work the overtime.
Cons: extremely poor management.
Enjoyed the work I did, but this site is poorly managed. The turnover rate is high. The general manager does not care about how things are run as long as the trucks are loaded on time. He allows his supervisors to mistreat and harass the workers. Management preaches about rewarding workers for good performance and initiatives, but they actually hold – more... back the employees who go above and beyond and allow the lazy worker's to get away with everything. The HR rep there is very flirtatious, unprofessional and she has inappropriate relationships with the workers. She will help you move up if you flirt with her, but if not she will tell lies to the GM to get you fired. The only good thing about this job is that it's easy work, the pay is decent if you work the ot. Hopefully the corporate office will get involved and bring in better management and turn it around. – less

Site Safety Coordinator (Current Employee), Beech islandMarch 31, 2014
Mentoring associates through safety awareness is a very rewarding days work. I make sure associates understand what a safe work environment means. Policies are their to protect associates and make them aware of the customer needs and expectations.
The hardest part of the job is to see associates ignore standards that result in hazards that become work – more... place accidents.
The best part of my job as a site safety supervisor is to know everyone went home safely. – less
