Order Puller (Former Employee), Upper Marlboro, MDOctober 17, 2013
A typical day at work would be data entry and order pulling.
while working at Rexlel I learned how to use a forklift and etc..
the management was great even at time work got hard they would assist. my co workers are on other floors but when some one completes the job usually they would help some one that's not finished the hardest part would be working – more... fifteen sixteen hours shift days. the most enjoyable part of the job would be pay check. – less

rundown warehouse workers
past employee (Former Employee), new zealand / australiaApril 24, 2013
Company does not look after its store workers nor do they care about their well being management needs to change, health and safety is a joke, including safety around hoists, sales assistants do not have current licences to drive hoist nor do they stick to regulations, every thing you shouldn't do they do do, store workers are run down, theres only – more... one storeperson per a shop, no cover for breaks, your seriously run off your feet, while you have several others at the front, pay is not good enough for the amount of work you got to do, its no wonder store workers leave, I have never known a company to hire so many store workers in a space of a few months. poor utilities, poor house keeping, one person cant be doing all the work. too many chiefs not enough Indians, there is no trust in the workplace, store workers are constantly being accused of stock going missing, even when you no it isn't you, and that the sales assistants are sending stock out the door without documentation, but it is still the store workers that get the blame for all stock descrepencies, there are a lot of breachs coming from management, such as the confidentiality act and rights as an employee, all managers shouldn't be discussing cv applications with all staff and gossiping potential employees work attributes between all staff members, from current cvs, time sheets are not handled correctly, overtime is not included when you do overtime, only when it suits, proper administration staff is required in the company, job descriptions not adhered to by management nor are polocies are not visible, staff inductions need to be put in place correctly, and training – less

Management in Dallas, Tx has a very poor management style/reputation
Area Credit Manager- Individual Contributor (Current Employee), Addison, TXMarch 3, 2013
Pros: location
Cons: the list is quite lengthy.
A typical day consists of trying your best and being ridiculed and unappreciated. I learned not to trust managers. Co-workers are dissatisfied, yet pleasant to work with (many have left the company). The hardest part of the job is dealing with management, as they lack experience and compassion. The most enjoyable part of the job is going home (honestly). – more... Advisable not to pursue a position with Rexel. HR is virtually non-existent as far as employee relations and hgher management has their heads in the sand. – less

Towards the end of my employment Rexel management changed. New management changed procedures several times in my last 3 years. They even changed line of product. I was had much product knowledge of electrical supply, but I was expected to sell telephone supply.

This Place is not for everyone.
?? (Former Employee), Addison, TXSeptember 19, 2012
Pros: there are none...pay was ok.
Cons: plan on being there a year or more to get hired. they go through people like crazy.
Temp to uhhh Temp is what it is here really, if you plan on getting hired on after three months, your kidding yourself. Was hired to do a different job than what was actually assigned. Didn't learn anything here that I didn't typically already know, started giving up after about two months. If you want to be a drone....work here... :)

lack of management made job difficult
Gear Project Manager (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJuly 15, 2012
Managed lighting jobs & learned the process of handling them. Lack of management & low moral with co-workers. Hardest part of job was not having anybody to go to for help & most enjoyable was being independant.

Pros: good friendly people
Cons: short lunch breaks
Our department was very busy everyday. Our group worked well with each other and the training was very good. I enjoyed working with all there. The hardest part of the job was trying to keep the daily pace with the tremendous amout of mail that would come in for processing. Only reason I left is because my previous employer generated a new position for – more... me so I would come back to work for them. – less

Worst company ever!
Sales (Former Employee), DenverMarch 17, 2012
Pros: decent pay
Cons: horrible
I worked for this company for several years thinking that some day things would get better but they never did. Every employee worth keeping jumped ship or was terminated. If you ever told a supervisor that you were looking else where or you were not happy. Watch out because they will look for any reason to fire you and if they cant find one they will – more... set you up when you go on leave. So you hardly every get your unemployment or your severance pay. They lie at your unemployment hearings too. So a word of advice! always take a tape recorder with you when you get pulled in the office.. – less

Chrs – March 3, 2013

The best advice is to stay as far away from this company as possible. Management is out-of-touch with their employees. HR practices are unethical. Very low employee morale. Director and Division Credit Managers in Addision, TX are the worst, ever! I concur, take a recording device with you if you plan on collecting unemployment benefits later. High employee turnover--NUMBERS DON'T LIE!
