Diría que el único incentivo existente es el sueldo. Exigen producción y carecen de empatía alguna (me han echado aún superando el periodo de prueba por no haber superado sus expectativas (que no hay trabajo vaya), el almacén es un desastre; concretamente voy a exponer mi caso en packing: cada jornada laboral es una odisea (llegando al punto de que l@s trabajadores tengan que pelearse literalmente por tener un puesto de trabajo, por fichar, que no se respete la lista de espera de los carritos con los artículos y que otras compañeras por llamarlas de alguna forma te tachen sin ningún reparo de ella para llegar a SU producción por una absoluta mala gestión de los conflictos mientras tú colocas las cajas mal hechas y las pones rectas porque solo piensan en llegar a SU producción afectando así al trabajo y al tiempo de los demás, etc.), supuestamente los chicos de apoyo te suministran las cajas pero parece que a veces realizas mejor que ellos su propio trabajo, muchos de los puestos no funcionan y si resulta que no hay carros preparados te mandan a tirar la basura ''para que no estés parado'', tal cual ¿acaso ya me puedo presentar a las oposiciones de barrendera?. Cómo puedes exigir producción a tus trabajadores cuando pasa el tiempo y no hay artículos para empaquetar, la máquina de la cinta adhesiva para precintar se atasca algo así como TODO EL TIEMPO, el otro día casi se me cae encima al igual que a otra compañera el día anterior debido a su colocación en el puesto, ni que dec
Muy mal ambiente entre compañeros,sin duda generado por la mala gestion en la gerencia.Ponerse de perfil o mirar para otro lado buscando solo que salga la produccion sin involucrarse en la solucion de los problemas dice mucho de esa persona.Cuando te entrevistan todo es maravilloso,despues te vas dando cuenta que todo es mentira,pero repito que todo es debido a la mala gerencia
A mi se me despide al incorporarme de nuevo a mi puesto de trabajo por coger una baja para operarme.La empresa alega que la carga de trabajo a bajado algo totalmente posible,pero que en este caso no era asi,pues el dia anterior a mi despido se contrata a otra persona por ETT y poco despues un compañero que estaba a media jornada se le amplia a jornada comlpleta(despido causas objetivas )En definitiva fue un despido por capricho y desde luego no justificado

No valoran el trabajo de los empleados, valoran si les caen bien o no los empleados.
Entré para horario rotativo de mañana y tarde, sin ninguna explicación me cambiaron a turno de tarde fijo.
A la hora de la renovación no supieron darme una explicación, según los jefes de almacén había hecho récord en producción en VAS control de calidad, estaban asombrados de la decisión que había tomado la empresa, habían insistido en mi renovación, pero que era cuestión de los de "arriba" y no podían hacer nada.
Por lo visto no es suficiente con trabajar y además bien, no sé que otro perfil mejor habría.

No hay manuales ni formación para los nuevos trabajadores.
Pese a que el salario suele ser un señuelo a la hora de convencer al nuevo empleado, el ambiente es nefasto y la manera de trabajar totalmente desestructurada.
En lo que a cargas completas se refiere, usan bolsas de carga. No disponen de flota propia y el seguimiento de las expediciones a los clientes es nefasto.

Consejo no deberían exigirle curso o certificado de carretillero a todos porque hay distintas labores que se pueden hacer ahí y el que lo tiene que haga esas tareas y los que no lo tienen hacen otras....es lo único que observé un poco incoherente.
Es una empresa organizada,buen ambiente laboral,a pesar de mi poco tiempo ahí laborando me gustó su ambiente agradable y su nivel de competitividad,los encargados del equipo son respetuosos con la gente que trabaja y estimulan el ritmo de trabajo con la meta diaria. Esperando volver a tener oportunidad de laborar nuevamente ahí....
Hay tantas cosas que hacer en cada departamento, que el trabajo es variado y siempre se aprende algo nuevo.
Las campañas son muy intensas, con alto volumen de trabajo, pero eso hace que la jornada de trabajo pase rápido.

Una seria y adecuada dirección por parte de mis superiores , por la parte de mis compañeros un gran grupo consolidado y con una gran amistad , la parte mas difícil de mi trabajo eran las continuas incidencias de pedidos que se producían.
Lo que mas me gustaba era el entorno de mi trabajo y las funciones que desempeñaba.
Norbert es una empresa que se dedica a la logística y el transporte,con lo cual dependiendo de la carga de trabajo que salga en el día hay días con muchísimo trabajo. Pero también hay días que hay poco trabajo. La relación entre trabajadores es muy buena y los encargados distribuyen muy bien las tareas para que todos los carretilleros tengan trabajo sin que se acumule. Si hablamos de la parte de Mantenimiento de la empresa, el encargado de ello lleva todo al día y se preocupa en todo momento para que todo esté en regla.
Un día típico en el trabajo es trabajar con estrés y buscar siempre la solución a los problemas que puedan surgir para que el trabajo acabe bien hecho.
He aprendido a trabajar en equipo, la comunicación con mis compañeros es fundamental.
En cuanto a la dirección de la empresa creo hay una desorganización notable.
Los compañeros son fantásticos, hay muy buena relación entre todos.
La parte mas difícil del trabajo es cuando lo planeado no sale bien.
La oportunidad de aprender sobre el transporte internacional.
Mala experiencia . Mucho amiguismo . Los compañeros en general agradables te ayudan en lo que sea , aparte están los que se piensan que van a heredar la empresa y dan codazos por el puesto que quieren. Se pide cada vez más productividad . Alguna jefa de equipo muy exigente y de muy malas formas, los supervisores tres cuartas de lo mismo. Sino te renuevan no te dan un aviso de 15 días, el día que te lo dicen más directo a la calle. Un largo etc....

Ok, so you're getting told off even by getting 1 minute late? that is crazy isn't it? especialy that the buses are often very late in that area. 1 year ago, when there was a lot of snow and people were not able to come, the manager wrote an official letter telling us that it was wrong we didn't come, and if we do that next time there will be consequences, they DO NOT CARE about employees safety at all.
Yeah, they don't care, the job I was doing (putaway), and most of the other jobs on site, require you to break "safety conduct", in order to reach your KPI. You heard me right, you need to push your trolley very fast, you need to forget about checking if there's someone passing when you're leaving the aisle. You can't focus on lifting heavy boxes correctly because there is NO TIME for that. All what matters for them is a KPI, nothing more matters, Your first name is your handscan number and your second name is your performance assinged to it.
When you don't reach your KPI, you're getting called to Team Leader's pod, where you're getting told off, and possibly getting a "recorded conversation", when you get 3 of those, they will put you on "performance managment", where you're getting trained to break even more rules to reach your KPI.
The worst part about this job, is that you're getting told off by the Team Leaders, who don't do anything at work, during the time I was transfered to better position where I was able to watch team leaders everyday's job and most of th

I worked in the display area at the Quaker Oats facility. My typical day started off at 6:30 a.m. We would all gather for a brief 2-3 min morning meeting. An old non cordial, guy (supervisor) would go over what numbers you and your associates completed the day before and what you'll need to complete before the shift ends. After the meeting is over, he'll then assign temps/associates to the line you'll be working at. Keep in mind that these individuals are feeling underpaid, overworked, and not all mentally adequate to take instruction and comply with company standard and policies.
What you'll learn is how to set up, and package displays for Quaker Oat's products. You will learn to read production invoices. You will learn that while you inspect all of the material and product, you'll also have to multi task. The associates should begin and start working on there assignments. But instead, they will take advantage of every second to not do anything or whip out there cell phones when you're not looking. You'll also get associates that will take multiple bathroom breaks that range from 5-20 min. You can not show or express concern. The reason being, is that management is afraid that you'll compromise the temp/associate to walk off the job. SO BASICALLY YOU ARE AT THE ASSOCIATES MERCY. Not to mention that they are short with the training process. Meaning that if you fall into a "I didn't know situation?" The trainer and supervisor will come down on you, and follow up by saying,

Hired to patch holes in a sinking ship, the captains are abandoning ship. They paint a different picture in the interview.
XPO has a high turnover rate. XPO recently purchased a high priced software system that failed and must continue to use it. This transition took place when the company purchased Conway. A lot of their customers are pulling their business because they haven't received invoices in over a year and feel that XPO is unorganized. I was part of a mass hiring done to assist in correcting the billing issues and demand payment for invoices that are over a year old. Most of the tenured employees complain of being underpaid and over stressed and as a result have quit or they are being fired. People are being fired and replaced weekly. Their customer complain of never being able to work with the same account specialist and are frustrated. Most of the long term managers on the floor have voluntarily left the company because of the added stress and are being replaced from employees provided by temporary services. Meaning the replacements have no knowledge of the real issues and are unable to assist on the floor.
They took all the cubicals down, so people are literally working side by side, which lets germs, coughs, and sneezes flow free, but H/R will give you an Emergen-C to mix in your drink if you request one.
From my overview, I believe this company is a sinking ship, the captains are abandoning ship. This ship is not about to sail. They are hiring as many people as possible, barely provide training, in effort to try to pull as much past due A/R as possible for the ship sinks.
A favorSmile and kiss up to the right people and it may be possible to last more than 3mos, They have a lot of potlucks. They have trail mix available whenever you like.
En contraDon't expect to be promoted or to have a long term position, XPO does not promote within to those who already have the knowledge to fix billing issues, They use the 'fire at will' for Texas often.
I would summarize by saying, I was so proud to represent East Coast Air Charter. However, I was reluctant to tell others that I was emploted by xpo.
XPO Air Charter is in existence as a result of the selling of East Coast Air Charter. I was courted by East Coast Air Charter, and relocated from Atlanta to Statesville NC to join a superb team that operated as a family. I absolutely love the on demand segment of the logistics industry. The wealth of knowledge and experience that I have gained is invaluable. When it was East Coast Air Charter, I literally could not wait to get to the office. I usually would log in from home to become familiar with current trips and quotes to be that much ahead of the game upon my arrival.
I thrived at every opportunity to build upon my knowledge, which was normally the result of an issue. I believe those are the magic moments that provide the opportunity to not only grow, but more importantly, that is when the opportunity to develop Trust. That is a word that is often not accepted for what it is, and what it means. Once you have developed Trust, you can then cultivate that Trust into meaningful, mutually beneficial relationships with invaluable Customers. That is precisely how East Coast Air Charter operated at every moment. My Customer communication standards are stellar, to the extent that it was suggested that I communicate and update the Customer less often (It is easier to pull a rope, verses than having to push it.) As the company grew exponentially, we relocated to a much bigger office, and things slowly started to change.

Great place to work; one critique on position advancement & talent recognition
XPO Logistics is a great company to work for & I see Corporate offices are CONSTANTLY innovating by trying to find new/better ways to look out for & take care of its employees. XPO is probably THE BEST company I have ever worked for in terms of what I see them doing and what I could bring to the table - but I don't see the recognition, compensation and job title adjustment I should see by this point in my career with XPO. I understand the position I am in was "created" for me but I argue that this position's "filler" title, compensation & overall role in the company should change or at least be considered with the changing in the job responsibilities, increased demand of responsibilities and innovative structuring of the procurement protocol, and continued success of meeting deadlines & setting records and with my continuing to exceed ALL of expectations that I have met within this created role. I feel that with my role ever-changing and evolving and with Corporate associates I've built wonderful professional networking relationships with to back me up, my title, compensation rate and overall position within the company should be re-evaluated.
It is important to note that I have requested this change, to discuss this change, and to make my case with the higher ups in management and even allowed to do so - three months ago. I did a fine job in my presentation who I am, what I am, what I do, and what I deserve with/for/from XPO. I was rewarded with praise, understanding and

In April 2015, XPO bought out NYC's top messenger company, Urban Express. By NYC standards, XPO is the highest paying messenger company (although any job that pays under $80k a year is not enough to afford NYC's obscene cost of living). Metrocards (a messenger working and commuting necessity) are provided in addition to the hourly pay, which is minimum wage. Weekly commissions that exceed the hourly pay are added to the weekly paycheck. When I worked for them, my commissions were about 30-40% higher than my base hourly salary. By comparison, many other NYC messenger services pay lower commissions than the minimum wage, don't pay hourly, and treat their couriers as 1099/"self employed" in order to not pay taxes or provide benefits and to pay their couriers less than minimum wage. Benefits are unusually good for a company in this industry, with paid vacation days/time off, and holiday pay.
XPO's schedules are later in the day than most other messenger companies (I never started before 9AM with XPO while my previous messenger employers always started at 6AM or 7AM). Most workdays end after 8-9 hours. Some dispatchers are willing to assign the last delivery to an area of Manhattan along the courier's route home. During the holiday season, schedules of over 12 hours are not uncommon due to the increased volume. January and July-August are usually the slowest periods of the year, and the most likely times to have shortened hours.

Management straight up doesn't care. Don't work here as a driver if you have family or even like to sleep as it's like swing shift the first 6 years. They start you out on Flex, say everything is by sonority but they call people in to work dock super early so you can't run and then have brand new drivers run instead if they don't call them in too. You loose $100 to $200 every time they do this. You complain to cooperate and that does NOTHING. They tell you policy is this but can't show you it in the handbook. Things change daily, sometimes in the next breathe or manager you talk too (sometimes with the same manager you just spoke with to clarify something). Then senior drivers turn and burn as fast as they can. They don't care if drivers with less sonority are stuck at that terminal and burn their 16. They expect you to help them and then leave you in the dust. There's no kind of cohesion or comradery there.
Their own HR quit mid shift. It is a mess. The night shift manager diverts runs so he can have his flex dock workers be highly paid dock workers. They NEED dock workers but they just use flex instead so other terminals have to pay their drivers to deliver loads instead of their flex workers.
If you work here don't complain or admit anything to other workers. It's like high school where they tattle to the principle to try and get special treatment. There's people that do horrible things where you scratch your head and wonder how they can still work there and then there

I spent one of the worst periods of my life here, working in the chill section. Part of why it was so bad was down to staff. I was treated horribly by certain colleagues. One colleague would not stop interfering with what I was doing: I was with another (one of few good ones) who was good and showing me the ropes but the other guy wouldn't shut up and stop telling me what to do. Another incident occurred when I was told to do something by a supervisor and then another colleague had a go at ME because I did something the supervisor asked! He practically screamed in my face: horrible!
Then I came in one Monday morning to be told it was my day off. I was not notified of this either by staff or the rota. Regardless of being annoyed at coming in when I was supposed to be off with no apparent warning, I was eager to get home. I then received a phone call hours later from a "higher up" who informed me that supervisors felt I was not doing a good enough job. So... based on that, the supervisors had clearly already made a decision BEFORE I came into work that day. They made me come into work, knowing that they didn't want me and were fully intending to get rid of me, sent me home claiming "it was a day off".
Now. Was I perfect at the job? No. Nobody is. But I tried hard and for my first job I took a pretty good attempt at it. Another guy who started with me got kicked out the chill earlier than me (he lasted days). In my opinion, I actually think he was better than me and they s

Everything at this company is a numbers game. Everyone from investors, corporate, to immediate managers are concerned with one thing only: Numbers.
Every person in the company must find a way to hit their numbers at all costs. ALL costs. If that means, cheating, lying, and doing anything short of blatantly illegal activities, then that is what needs to be done.
As everyone who has experience in statistics or any job where numbers tell a story, you know that they only tell PART of the story. Albeit an important part, but not the whole story. XPO isn't interested in the other part of the story. Their culture is to weed out people or things that are not supporting their specific numbers game until they find someone who will serve up the numbers they need. If you do, it's high praises and high commissions. If you do not, they give you deadlines of termination to pick up your numbers. Often these goals are unrealistic. They ask that you stay longer (10 workdays are expected in all entry-level positions, but this is the start, if you fall behind, you need to stay beyond that to prove you are trying). Or else you fired.
Being on the operations side of this business (which is most everyone) is extremely mentally exhausting. It is not hard, it is actually FUN a lot of times until something goes wrong, which is often. Every day you come home completely used up. There is no concern (at all) for family or a healthy work/private life. The people who make it in this industry ge
