Being first highest in seniority for the exel logistics for
Hershey I got screwed because we didn't have the union in but
we tried.To many stupid people in Lebanon county that think companies care about them.Believe me were are dime a dozen without higher education.
There in business to make money.You got to have job security.
I've worked over Hershey/ exel since the ground broke.They used me for production numbers because they were always high and Hershey couldn't understand how I was doing it but they liked it. I didn't follow there system.Until they introduced engineered standards.Hershey and exel are both greedy and they can shove there incentive pay.
They played with the number system to get people fired who were a threat to the company to get the union in.I than after years of crap when over to the Hershey co-pack side just to by time for another job.They kept calling me in the office for so-calledly
"wasting company time" another scheme they use so if you get fired it might be hard to collect unemployment benefits.I have a few articles I kept over the years from union letters
to my 3 day walk out.Little do they know that the money they
are making from you people is God's money anyway and they're
ripping him off too.Plus they keep who want to without messing
with "certain individuals" numbers.Right now I'm not working
and awaiting back surgeory.So if anyone see this message and has read it-DO NOT TURN YOUR BACK ON EXEL OR ANY AFFILIATES THEY HAVE.YOU HAVE YOUR WHOLE WORK LIFE TO LIVE AND SUPPORT YOU FAMILIES.YOU NEED THE UNION.AND YOU CLAIM ALL YOUR UNION
DUES AT THE END OF THE YEAR AT INCOME TAX TIME BUT THEY WON'T TELL YOU.AND IF IT DOESN'T GET IN JUST GET OUT OF THE JOB.WHY WAIT ANOTHER 3 YEARS TO SEE IF YOU HAVE YOUR JOB YET.SCREW HERSHEY TOO.

You General Mills/Exel workers think you have it tough? Try working on the Johnson and Johnson account at Salem 3 in Mechanicsburg. If we go to our campus HR to complain they say things like "Oh, you work at Salem 3? Well, there's your problem." I get dumped on because I've got better productivity than most and I do it all without cheating the system. I keep working even after I've made quota. I take pride in my job and I work hard at it. I've had incidents where I have done what I was told and then written up for it. I feel your pain but trust me, J&J/Exel is far worse.

Stop waiting and depending on Exel or the union to make your life better. Obviously that hasn't worked yet, what makes you think anything will change in the future. Work harder on yourself than your job! Use Exel to get from point a to point b, and that's all. Don't let it consume you. Don't let it be your "life". Try a couple of classes at a technical school or college. You would be amazed how just a few classes will help you in the job market, it doesn't take a degree to make a difference. You have a choice! Nothing of value is easy but it is a lot more possible than most people realize. Or... take the easy route, do the same thing you've been doing, stay where you are, being lead like cattle to the slaughter. Choose to think for yourself. Realize your options. Decide your new course. Commit to achieving your new goals. Take action and do whatever it takes to move you in the direction of your new goals even if you have to start with small steps. Just do it!

(FULLTIME) Employees ((BEWARE)) LMS is designed to rid a work enviroment of fulltime employees..thus to be replaced by Temp Workers with NO liability to EXEL..Why you think staffmark was emplimented (emmbedded) into EXEL Trust me standards of the lms is unrealistic ...it doesnt know the differance between a box and a can ..or weight of product its a time set by the system without any knowledge of what the job will take to complete every second is differant 2 mins to pic 2 layers of boxes or 2 mins to (THROW) 4 layers of cans from to locations side by side...thats 8 layers folks ...can u say 12-14 mins to throw 8 layers of cans or glass ...well the system seems to tell ya 2 mins ...good luck ...u have 6 months ..till your out the door without a care of a company that us all made 100s of thousands of dollars in the few years we worked for EXEL...THANKS EXEL...

I worked for Exel in Salem 3 in 2008. The gotta a buch of college boys pretending to be supervisors. The F *** heads do not know their balls from a sack of grape tomatoes. LMS, standards - they are killing the American worker. They are all blow hards. Get out brothers and unite with the Teamsters or SUI.

You could unionize but the warehouse would be shut down and moved to another area or 3PL. What would you have gained then?
Dont think that it wont happen - why do you think companies like General Mills and Hershey dont run the warehouse themselves?

Stop the whinning! All of you need to understand that nothing in life is free and everyplace has standards, Exel is at least up front with them and takes the time to set realistic goals.
If you don't want to be accountable for your performance then get an education and get out of a warehouse or start your own business... Wait that would make you accountable then or you would just be on the other side.

I see you will make a great teamster by the way you spell.

Why don't you guys ask the Teamsters if they can provide a written guarantee of their promises to you?
I bet you won't get it!!!!!!!!!!

Exel is a company that provides jobs for individuals that want to work.
My Teamster experience is negative and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
The membership is on a decline due to people that have exposed them for what they really are.
My trust is in the group that signs my check not with anyone that has their own agenda.
Think of it like this "When you are walking the picket lines and not receiving a paycheck" turn around and ask the Teamster Rep "Are you getting a paycheck"? Because you won't be!

I see you are an ex-employee, which tells me you are out of work.
You can't hate on people because they are educated.
Look to see how many Teamster members are educated.
That is why they are members!
