    I worked at GEODIS full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They didn’t over work us

    Cons

    No overtime. You had to keep busy or else they’ll send you home. As a picker and packer we’d always be stuck sweeping the warehouse until we had an actual pallet to pack

    Advice to Management

    Cross train employees

    I worked at GEODIS

    Pros

    Nothing positive to say here

    Cons

    Poor communication. Managers don't manage. They are concerned employees will complain to HR so they walk all over management. Most don't speak english so how could you reprimand? No structure at workplace. No clean water available in warehouse except for lunchroom which can literally take 15 minutes to get to when security is backed up. Same for bathroom visits. With only 3 stalls available it may even take longer.... And if you want to bring lunch you either keep it in car or leave 15 minutes early so you have time to drive to front of building to get to breakroom then drive to back of building to park and re enter. No heat in winter and working 8+ hrs you are literally numb and have no feeling in hands and feet. Yes, they do have heat, but only turns on when ceiling temperature reaches 40 degrees. Heat rises people!!! Summer is brutally hot, usually 10-15 degrees hotter inside, again no water immediately available. People pass out every day when temperature outside is 90 or more. They get a chair and let them sit with a cold rag until they feel better...right outside the air conditioned office within warehouse. Sweat shop indeed. This warehouse is not worth the measly pay.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together and discipline your employees. Figure out a better training plan and hire people who give a damn. Be consistent with everyone.
