    I have been working at GENCO Distribution System full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Stable, average and predictable company that is on par with most other corporations or large organizations in the industry. Has an open network of internal hiring and transfer within the organization.
    Diverse accounts allow for a wide range of opportunities to work in.

    Cons

    Warehousing industry, in my opinion, seems to be comprised of simple thinkers who cannot work outside the box.
    Many peers, superiors and subordinates fail to comprehend that there is more to the operation than simply moving product from one location to another.
    There is poor treatment of hourly grade employees and hence results in high turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on leadership development and improving the industry culture.

    Pros

    Good dedicated co-workers, but they were left by the company that abandon us.

    Cons

    Not honest with employees. Our company farmed out distribution to Genco. They told us everything would remain like it was. Once their feet hit the floor inside the building they began changing everything. They treat manangement well but think nothing of hourly employees.

    I have been working at GENCO Distribution System

    Pros

    Be on time and don't call in during your probationary period and your hired. 3rd party logistics make it easy to disappear with in the cracks.

    Cons

    Genco and BD from what I see are a old boys club. Advancement within the company is based on being liked and friendship. Need to rotate management out on both sides. They know how to hide some very important and very expensive problems.

    I have been working at GENCO Distribution System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Accessibility is awesome. You can reach out to any member of management and expect a response. This is from the owner on down.

    Cons

    There needs to be more direction. Decisions are made on emotional basis and often not fact based. Resources get misplaced on new ventures when they would have more impact on current business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to focus on accountability and less on loyalty. The loyalty is valued but not when it causes more pain and difficulty when issues are ignored.

    Pros

    Losts of job opportunities for personal growth. Competitive salary and health benefits. Great working atmosphere. Your coworkers make you feel like this is your second home.

    Cons

    Outdated software technology. Corporate offices built within a warehouse; therefore, tight parking space. The corporate building is far from becoming a green building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should not play favorites. Reward smart employees with true monetary incentives. No sweepstakes gift, please.

    Pros

    A leader in the industry.
    Work life balance is acceptable.
    Benefits are acceptable.

    Cons

    Depending on which business unit you work for you can get stuck.
    Management does not follow through with new company-wide initiatives.
    Offices are run down which can be an embarrassment when bringing a customer in for meetings.

    Good company to work for if in need of steady paycheck, but not what you would call a good "career opportunity"

    Pros

    Steady Paycheck, Fast Paced Environment, Decent Work Environment, Some Opportunity for Promotion.

    Cons

    Lack of Qualified Leadership, Leadership very Disorganized, Mandatory Overtime without being informed beforehand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to simply work on your organization skills, reform management especially a lower levels (i.e. Leads, Supervisors). Employees should not feel like their supervisor knows absolutely nothing. Employees should be able to go to their supervisor with a question and get an answer, not "go ask so and so"....

    Pros

    Flex-Time
    Overtime opportunities (40-65 hours!)
    Nice People

    My supervisor was great, we all knew what we had to do so this cut down on micro management.

    Cons

    Short Breaks due to security protocols

    I would warn potential employees to be aware of changes within the company, especially warehouse employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
