    Former Employee - Reach Forklift Operator In-Bound Putaway in Fort Worth, TX
    Former Employee - Reach Forklift Operator In-Bound Putaway in Fort Worth, TX

    I worked at Tech Data full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was a Reach Truck Operator and the job paid 13.50 an hour. Work was easy and the warehouse overall is kept clean. If you want to move up in the company you can.

    Cons

    Overtime was cut back. People sometimes whine about the work (it’s not hard). Warehouse not climate controlled. Kind of odd because they house tvs, printers, and small electronics. One would assume they wouldn’t want that stuff getting moisture in them during humid months.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees complaints and stay consistent on what you say you are going implement and do.

    I have been working at Tech Data full-time

    Pros

    Lunch and Learns, free stuff from vendors.

    Cons

    No technical skills required, low pay, mediocre benefits, micromanagement. An outdated office environment, using a telemarketing approach to a technical endeavor. As long as you have certs that the company can tell a Vendor "hey we have this many people with your cert pay us a lot of money to hawk your product". They are not interested in degrees, only certs, unchallenged at every task. If you are technical and like hands on work, STAY AWAY, your skills will rot, this is where careers come to die. They also have a "diversity and inclusion" policy that is making the place a magnet for every perpetual victim, marginalized person, people with chips on their shoulders and axes to grind. Very PC, dont rock the boat with original thought. Tolerance confused with acceptance.

    Advice to Management

    Look up from the reports once in a while and challenge your employees, dont micromanage. Too many levels of management and no accountability. Just because its the biggest company in Florida does not mean it is the best place to work. Company riding on past accolades from the early 90s.

    Pros

    Overtime checks and they get you forklift certified but other than that nothing much here. Oh maybe just the people that worked there were cool.

    Cons

    No outside work life, unprofessional management, no raises. No vacation time. Micromanage everything you do as well as expect you to never miss a day while working 72 hours a week for little pay.

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing good about this facility except the half run by Tech Data. Tech Data has not yet cleaned house and gotten rid of the turds that are lazy and have no clue how to run a business.

    Cons

    Logistics Center warehouse is run by goons who not only do NOT know how to run a business but do NOT belong in positions where they have anyone working under them. Unprofessional. HR doesn't care, as they are only a representative of legal and do not care about employees or the work environment. HR rep is unprofessional. Warehouse management allows lazy people to be lazy and rewards them for it. Top handful of employees are required to make up for the lazy people by putting in 3 times the amount of work. Does not plan for employee loss so there is way to much tribal knowledge. Lacks training in every way.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all management from the top down that is a part of the old Avnet TS group and hire new.
