With 3PL's, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose...
Pros: good benefits and pto
Cons: average pay, only give you one 15 minute break (everywhere else i worked you got two in addition to your lunch)
The thing with 3PL's is even if you're with the same company, every site is different, and the differences can be astronomical. I can't speak for any other site except for the one I worked at in Cranbury, NJ. There was a rocky start with management at first. We went through two general managers before finding a solution. It was hard trying to get a new operation off the ground with so many managerial changes, but when things settled down and everyone got into their roles it was pretty good. They tended to hire warehouse personnel based more on if they'd be a good fit personality wise more so than experience. I didn't agree with that philosophy at first since most people didn't know too much, but I quickly realized we were able to build a close, team environment where everybody worked well together. And eventually the experience came with those that didn't have much before. Typical day for me consisted of using a stand up lift to put away pallets and pick orders. Quality inspect orders for damage and accuracy, and shipping out full truck loads or LTLs. Benefits were pretty good, a decent amount of PTO even in the first year. Pay, while not great, was above slightly average for the area. I know I've read some pretty terrible reviews for this company on here, but the site I worked at was enjoyable to work at and the people were great to work with.
