  1. "Friendly atmosphere"

    Pros

    Friendly
    Fair
    Decent pay
    Training
    Advancement
    Training was always frequent and they provided lunch. Everyone was friendly and there wasn't really office drama.

    Cons

    Some long hours for those in the warehouse
    Locations are dependent on customers housing their materials there.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key! Happy employees = happy management. Exel was great to me. Towards the end when the location was shut down, I would have appreciated more communication as to when my position was ending.

    I have been working at Exel Transportation Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you put in the hours the pay is good with over time, plus good benefit package, in addition they are fair in their treatment of the employees.

    Cons

    Work and life balance is heavily tilted to work. In the busy seasons there will be a mandatory 7 days 10 hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    If you have a better base pay and give your employees a better work / life balance you would attract and retain quality workers.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits. Great corporate infrastructure. Upper management was typically very good at selecting local warehouse management, which is key for the 3PL industry.

    Cons

    Small IT project implementation could be slow at times, but due to the number of startups that took priority, this would be lower priorities.

    Pros

    The company utilizes labor share which not only helps the company but also allows opportunities for the associates.

    Cons

    Job postings are not easily accessible to all associates this may be due to not having an onsite HR rep at our site.

    Advice to Management

    Every site should have an onsite Rep

    I worked at Exel Transportation Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job that pays you with a weekly pay check.

    Cons

    Very incompetent from he general manager on down to the shift managers. Leadership is badly needed. They don't train new pickers correctly and the turnover rate is epic. Communication is flawed and favoritism is high. One worker was allowed to work drunk with no reprimanding. Hours are ridiculous and the pay and the respect don't add up. You're liable to work 70 or more hours a week. This was the last rewarding job I've ever had.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone including yourselves and start from scratch.
