too many hours leaves little time for personal life
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee), Canton, MSNovember 9, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: no voice for ops supervisors
A typical day is fast paced and stressful , i've learned to operate a new and interesting WMS. Management doesn't show much respect for employees , co-workers are stressed and tired. The hardest part about the job is being Micro-managed.

Demanding and unproductive
Fork Lift operator?Logistics (Former Employee), Taunton, MANovember 6, 2014
Pros: good medical plan, and 401-k was important.
Cons: employees were encouraged to judge, and look for problems
It was obvious that cut backs were inevitable.This was a company start-up.The majority of people which set up the company resigned or
fired with out cause.Employees were promised a career,and pressured into accepting a lower wage or leaving.This lead to all round discontent.All this due to new management.Benefits were reduced.

Excel could careless about you.
Forklift/yard driver (Former Employee), Fairburn,GaNovember 6, 2014
Pros: you have a job
Cons: low pay/long hours, they will not pay you double time, no work life balance
Excel in fairburn, Ga is the worst places to work for. Stay away 1. The pay for forklift is 11-11.85 which is close to making a Mcdonald's check by the end of the week. They also have a driver position which is called non-dot so they get out of paying you for your skills. 12.20 you cant be serious. They have a LMS system which only works in there favor – more... and literally throws yours focus off of doing a simple tasks all day. Which is building a pallet with products. They time you at every location at every stop. The most fun part about working with your hands you have to pull out a piece of paper and write down everytime you stop to do anything, Ridiculous!!!!! Management say very nasty and personal things about there employees to the point if you found out it would be problems. Grown people telling on each other like kids Immature. Excel does not care about you. My advice do not apply for this job unless you are at the very end of the road in your life. Other wise steer clear of this ticking time bomb waiting to happen. There is no love here just business. They fire people around the holidays they don't care if you have a family. – less

Just do it fast
Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHOctober 27, 2014
Pros: they will sell you the left over damaged product usually cheaper than you can get it at the store, you can work as much overtime as you want when the work is available. 12 hours a day 7 days a week.
Cons: they keep you stressed about your score which is easily manipulated by those in the office
A typical day is when they tell you go as fast as you can or you wil be fired. If you can go faster you MAY but probably will not get an incentive bogus.That is why we call it bogus, it is an imaginary bonus. The positive is it does not matter if you do your job right because they will just have someone else go behind you and fix it. The important thing – more... is to do it fast even if it is wrong. They encourage you to go as fast as you can but are surprised every time some one hits something... – less

Competitive work place
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee), Detroit, MIOctober 21, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: short breaks
In my work place you will be challenged every day mentally. You learn to have thick skin and respond to sudden changes. It most certainly builds character and can either make or break you. I manage over 40 associates and I make everyone around better. I push everyone to get the most out of everyone but still make everyone job enjoyable. I hold people – more... accountable and enforce safety and process. – less

Proctor and Gamble is a modern, clean, and well-maintained facility.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Mehoopany, PAOctober 14, 2014
Pros: exel has exceptional promotions for team accomplishments, i.e. t-shirt, coats, hat giveaways, pizza from time to time, etc.
Cons: breaks could be short, especially when short-handed.
A typical evening at work for Excel starts with a pre-shift meeting in which safety procedures/concerns are addressed, the days work in an overview, and management announcements. I have learned to operate a forklift safely in one of the most challenging and demanding manufacturing facilities in the United States. Management is well-organized, and they – more... rotate managers through our work area from time to time. Co-workers are excellent to get along with, and are competent, and team players. The hardest part of this job is the exceptionally fast pace, moving product on your forks an average of every three to five minutes, constantly throughout a twelve-hour shift. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the people, and driving late-model and newer hydrogen powered Hyster double-fork forklifts. – less
