No respect for core values. Internal politics comes first.
Superviseur (Current Employee), Coteau-du-lac, QCJune 10, 2013
Pros: average for all
Cons: poor communication and internal politics rules.
High management is not following the core value of the corporation and communicating info about the disrespect of core value to your superior may cost you your job.

Losts of internal unwriten politics to beware of.

Sadly, this is an ordinary place with big communication problems.

Installations are less than 5 years old. Opening of the Distribution – more... Center in 2008. Makes that part easier.

Enormous turn over of employees and more or less up to date training system.

Must not meet with higher hiarchy alone in case of discontentment. – less

Very low pay for backbreaking labour..
Delta, 7003 Shipper (Former Employee), deltaMay 27, 2013
Pros: good people to work with
Cons: very low pay for extremely hard work.
I would personally not recommend working here for the amount of pay they were offering. They hassled you to work fast, but the cargo was over 100lbs each and the team was very understaffed...

Worker (Former Employee), Calgary, AB, CANMarch 13, 2013
Pros: extra days and hours off available.
Cons: hr officce is conmpletely rude and unhelpfull- they'd rather yell at you!
After working at the Genco in Calgary, AB, CAN. the benefits were great- extra days off, a place that really gives you the benefit of the doubt! the hours are reasonable- but they keep changing them slightly... the managers were pretty good- it seemed like when you had something to say- they would listen!! WARNING: don't go to the HR/Teammate services- – more... you will get snarled or yelled at... very unproffessional and rude in that office! – less

not a good place to work for
EMR Tech/ or break/fix tech (Current Employee), Lebanon, TNOctober 9, 2014
Pros: enough overtime hours to compensate for the low pay.
Cons: bad leadership
The company in its day to day operations is ran by people that are friends or have a personal relationship with someone. The most qualified individuals do not get any of the promotions. Those are only given to girlfriends, wives, boyfriends, and other personal relationships. This is also a major affirmative action employer. Which is one of the reasons – more... why bad decisions keep getting made everyday. – less

Hazelton is the worst place to work.
Forklift Operator (Current Employee), Hazleton, PAOctober 3, 2014
This place is filled with a bunch of transient scrubs looking for a quick buck. The company thrives off these idiots somehow, so good for them I guess.

Management loves to pretend that safety comes first, but the reality is that is only true when it doesn't cost them money. The place is so cheap they don't even replace expired supplies from the first – more... aid cabinets.

Pointless to complain, they'll just tell you where the door is and how easy it is to replace you with another cheap scrub. – less

My experence working as a scanner. Chill floor leadership and annual employee appreciation events aren't enough to make this job worthwhile.
Scanner (Former Employee), Lockbourne, OhOctober 1, 2014
Pros: chill floor leadership. easy work as a scanner. annual employee apprecuation events.
Cons: no work life balance. management is a joke. low pay.
Where to start? First of all the pay is horrible. Second of all you start the job as a scanner thinking it is going to be a 8 hr long a day job. Only soon after to find that you will be on overtime of 10 hours a day for pretty much everyday often "until further notice" so that you have no idea most of the time what hours you work, even while working – more... until 8 o clock. When ether you go on break or have to wait till 8:20 am. Usually having to work a straight 4 days of 10 hour days at the "management's" discretion. The days as a computer parts scanner, are some of the longest and repetitive days you will ever face. If your a guy you will most likely be pulled to the back to the "PNP" area "Printers and Projectors" Where you will have to lift, with the help of one other person, 15-120 pound commercial printers out of the boxes, scan them and then place them back in the shipping boxes and them palletize them. It's literally back breaking archaic labor. To which none of the head people have any care to fix, or make a smoother process.

The management as a whole is a joke. They have no idea of what they are even managing. They send "Engineers" "to streamline the production of printer processing, and make it easier" who come to research the work only one day, and you never see them again. Yet whenever there is a visitor, the management is suddenly full of bright ideas to pitch to heads of contracted companies. These "ideas" are more then empty ideas that wouldn't effect the job you do as they know nothing about what it is you actually do anyway, as they spend all of the time in their offices.

I was a scanner since Feb. of this 2014, Mind you this is a feat that is unheard of in this company as they can't keep people to save their life. I was actually fired unjustly without warning after almost 8 months of smudge free performance for a comment I said undirected towards anyone, walking out the office about getting my time wasted because of being told by my department floor Genco supervisor, to head back to the 'Abacus' temp office in the back of the warehouse to be only be told to stop coming back to the Abacus temp supervisors office by the Abacus supervisor. Of which there was no work-interrupting habit even occurring, as I had only the week before visited the Abacus office to talk about company conversion a couple times the week before. This message was Directed through Abacus supervisor by way of one Genco office's supervisors bored un-weighted complaints. In the end it cost them one of their most loyal and hardworking temporary employees who was a signature away from direct hire company conversion. If you're in need of a job while looking for a job, sure otherwise stay far away from this company. – less

No nonsense place
Case picker/Dock Auditor (Current Employee), Edwardsville, IllinoisSeptember 29, 2014
Pros: free lunch, gift cards, gifts and days off for safety.
Cons: people not following system
A typical day at work is clocking and logging in, checking with supervisor to see if there is any special assignments to do, if not just do regular job and work until break buzzer.
New things I learned at Genco was driving electric pallet jack, and stand-up high reach lift.
Management is okay, don't always agree with every thing they do.
Like the people – more... I work with.
Case picking is hardest part of job, pretty physical.
Satisfaction of doing a hard days work. – less

Assistant Safety Manager (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: working conditions and benefits
Cons: the opportunity to advance to management
A typical day at work is generally busy but productive. The logistics industry is an integral part of the economy. My co-workers work very well with me, however the hardest part of the job is constantly training new people, it is a pleasure to bring new teammates, but they seem to give up before they realize what a bright future they could have.
