    Panduit Warehouse - Okay job

    Warehouse Technician I (Current Employee)
    DeKalb, IL

    ProsDecent pay for the fairly relaxed environment, flex time, average vacation accrual. 401K. Never force overtime. Fairly easy to move between shifts because of the high turnover rate.

    ConsAfter some time almost everyone falls into this pit of hating your job. The warehouse does not have an upbeat environment/culture in any way shape or form. Many times you will ask your foreman a question and they will answer you in a condescending manner or give you the answer that will just get you out of your office, not fix the problem, it gets frustrating,

    Change is good?

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Tinley Park, IL

    ProsGood benefits, 401K match, New corporate headquarters.

    ConsLots of inner circles which most of the times work against them selves. Within the last 5 years the company has changed from a family owned company that cared about its employees and products to a company that was more concerned with following the industry standard and volume of products sold.. Quality of products tanked once production was sent over seas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to practice what they preach. Promote from within stop passing up internal qualified talent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great at first....

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMost of my co-workers(the ones who aren't afraid of hard work)...the foremen from first shift.

    ConsThe equipment we have are old and constantly breaking down, conveyors system needs an update, upper management needs to be more involved, using paid sick days and getting punished for using our paid sick days, the BRAVO system is a joke when it comes to the lower warehouse workers(it's not hard "Thanking" a co-worker for helping out in person), sometimes it feels like I'm back in high school with the favoritism game being played, no room for advancement......

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe should get rid of the BRAVO system and come up with a new system that will make us lower warehouse worker feel appreciated. We shouldn't get punished for taking our paid sick days.

    Hired as an intern in 2012 as a sophomore in college. 40 hours per week at about $10/hr.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsExposure to many departments. Excellent learning opportunity for a current undergraduate in Business, Economics, Finance, or related discipline. Great food in the cafeteria.

    ConsInternships were fairly unstructured. Most work was ad hoc and a sizable portion was mundane. Not much room for advancement.

    I enjoyed working there at first.

    Scheduler (Current Employee)
    Bolingbrook, IL

    ProsI was making a fair salary and had good benefits.

    ConsProclaiming themselves a "family" company was hogwash. It was about profits. There was a huge component of the workforce that was dead wood. They often kept these folks during the 11 layoffs I went through. (Ten survived, one not) This environment of continuously worrying about your job was very hard to deal with.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest. I was flat out lied to several times by management.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Some things never seem to change

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSome of the positives include reasonable employee benefits like 401k matching, decent insurance, flexible work schedule (somewhat), and reasonable salaries.

    ConsCompany still operates in the old world - salaried employees clock in, employee review and compensation plans are a joke, company seems to make efforts to modernize, but too slow and incomplete efforts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStick with a strategy/plan and follow through

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great internship experience, learned a lot

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Orland Park, IL

    ProsGood pay, flexible hours, friendly employees very open to helping/teaching

    ConsEasy to confuse products when I wasn't familiar with them

    Advice to Senior ManagementA more standard method of teaching the basics of types of products (basic overview in the form of a digital handbook, PowerPoint slides, etc.)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
