    I worked at GENCO Distribution System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay. Great mistreated co-workers.

    Cons

    Too bad you don't have negative stars on the rating chart. Low brow, uneducated managers and supervisors. The management team that worked at this facility were awful. Eventually, when GENCO was bought out by FEDEX, they lost their contract at the facility and an even worse employer, ACI - Accent Controls, took over the facility with the same ignorant management team that didn't have the brain power combined to escape...

    Advice to Management

    Train your staff and since you have remote facilities and offices, do random pop-up visits. You might just find out how crooked and unethical your management teams really are and save your company a lot of money.

    I worked at GENCO Distribution System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of hours and overtime pay. Cake once a month for birthdays. Easy work.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment. Not enough time clocks available, so people were always in a panic in the morning because you were reprimanded for clocking in earlier than five minutes and reprimanded for clocking in one second late, but there were only two clocks and a lot of people that needed to clock in. Plus security was right by the clocks so everything was backed up every morning.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the cake.

    I worked at GENCO Distribution System full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits prior to FedEx taking over. Not sure what direction the company will head as FedEx. Herb Shear and Jim Polacheck took care of their people.

    Cons

    Too many CSVP's are clueless. FedEx seems to be culling some of these lackluster middle managers out. Also, project managers are simply there to keep their jobs, not help local operations.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your local management.

    I have been working at GENCO Distribution System full-time

    Pros

    Pay is decent and they offer a lot of overtime. Usually the people that work weekend shift have mandatory overtime and people that have M-F shift that have been there for a long time only get volunteer OT.

    Cons

    Management doesn't give a crap about their people. Everything that Johnson & Johnson tells them to do they have to do it without any hesitation. No way to move up in the company as well.
