Logistics Specialist | Gahanna, OH | Apr 26, 2018
This is a entry level or "hood job"
I worked here and was surprised at how low the morale was. Staff not really working but standing around and talking for long periods of time. Don't get me wrong. There are those who do bust their butts, there. But it is not a large number, unless you happen to be working on another team.. There's also lots of back biting and gossiping, so if you saw this in the others' reviews, it is very true. The attendance policy is only enforced if they don't like you. They say it is strictly enforced, I say not true.. I witnessed with my own eyes staff leaving early to go on dates, supposedly sick, or don't come in at all due to hangovers..They later joke about it on the floor the next day. One guy rarely is there, and when he does show up, he leaves early when he doesn't seem to feel good. This seems to be a regular thing, yet he is still there, lol..I have seen him maybe 65% of the time..Maybe 70 tops since I have been there. How low is the morale? How about a trainer whose been fired an excess of four times, yet keeps getting hired back because of her lawyer? Or the fact that when temps are sent here, hardly no one ever comes back? I mean don't even last 24 hrs! Or the fact that, Arrow Electronics can't seem to keep Supervisors. .The folks who are still there are individuals that should have been fired ages ago. And the things they talk about on the floor will make your hair stand-up, especially if you are a lady..But these guys are all cool with management, so nothing to worry about.
ProsGood food, decent pay, understanding supervisor when she is in a good mood.
ConsManagement, management, and management, lol The morale is just awful here.

Not a good place to work
To start this review, please note that this company will literally hire anyone, including the homeless. I suppose that can be a benefit to some. Others, not so much. The engineers aren't really computer engineers of any kind. Most don't know the very basics of operating systems. What they do know however, is how to do what the customer tells them to do. This does not only regard the engineers, but all of management as well. They will say anything and do anything to get the business of others regardless of if it can actually be done or not by this company. Their lies play a big part in keeping this company alive. Everyone on the production floor, besides the Supervisors and Engineers, get paid generally the exact same amount regardless of how well they perform or how poorly. Don't expect any raises, or rewards of any kind from this company, it all goes to upper management. (BTW, this is a fortune 150 company). The typical day as a production tech involves standing for all 8 hours or 10 hours depending on your shift. You stand to build a computer, and you stand to stare at a monitor and follow step by step dummy instructions on how to install a stick of RAM and how to press F12 on your keyboard to go into CMOS. The work is very tedious, repetitive and mind numbing. If you are someone who likes to use your brain, then this is not the job for you. If you have any kind of experience and education, this is not the job for you. The only reason you should be working at th
ProsYou can get a good laugh once in a while, hard to get fired

offers job stability
This company has given me the opportunity to learn about the warehouse life. I grew up from a simple warehouse associate as a picker and grew out to be a quality member. its all thanks to my trainers for giving me the proper training to do my job. I've learned the value of all the electronic devices that we currently own because by a chance that I could've inspected a piece of that hardware installed inside the unit. Every morning that I wake up, I am excited for what challenges that I will be facing that day at work. it gave me the courage to tackle any obstacle and always figures a way to resolve the issue. People around me are very helpful and are always positive, but you do have some bad apples within the bunch. Once you learn to navigate around them, there shouldn't be any problem. Leads, Supervisors, and Managers are always there to help you and management teams always have their doors open for any concerns you are dealing with. Open door policy is always a good way to communicate with the management team on a one on one basis. HR representative are always there to help you and are always there for you. The hardest part is if you get into a department and you are not properly trained by a department trainer, you will suffer some mistakes at some point. But, if you are obviously wanting to keep the job, you will be more cautious as no one really want to get an error. Just putting yourself as a customer as an example, you order something and have been waiting for i

My AVR branch has been shut down so this probably won't benefit anyone
I can only speak for my location of the Arrow Value Recovery division, and not Arrow Electronics as a whole. I learned a lot about computers and had a lot of good hands on experience with fixing them, and other devices. Once a month we had cookouts or catered lunch. I had a lot of great, friendly. and reliable co-workers which always made my day better. I liked the department I regularly worked in, but most the others were undesirable. The work was simple, but sometimes stressful and they often expected the impossible to get done as if it was regular work. More than once we had 6 months straight of 60 hour, 6 days of week work schedule. They also often changed training procedures which gradually slowed production the more they changed them. Our management did not communicate well with our upper-management, and a lot our questions and suggestions were never taken into account. I would request tools and resources and it would take more than one e-mail and few conversations with HR until I would finally get them 6 months later, or I would just give up and get creative. Also, wage raises were very low even after getting an outstanding year review. The upside is that they offered really great benefits, and an abundant amount of vacation/sick time. I would recommend a job like this for getting hands on experience with computer hardware, but not for long term. I can't speak for other Arrow divisions, but I imagine they are better managed than our AVR location; which is now shut down
Prosgood benefits, hands on experience with computer hardware, work is fairly simple, good job for earning experience
Conspoor management communication, too much overtime, low chance of promotion, and extremely poor wage raises

Bad management, over worked and stressful place to work.
Complete lack of proper training and management. Anyone from newer hires to temps can be training someone. No consistency in processes and nobody above the line workers are held accountable for wrong doings. Everyone has their own way of doing things and you just learn the way that person taught you, it isn't necessarily the proper way. The facility I was at are currently being audited by corporate for job processes being done incorrectly in order to beef up production numbers and force product through, resulting in verification of every asset in the building, roughly 120,000 units. needless to say it is a nightmare. I'm surprised it hasn't been shut down. Supervisors have no clue what your job actually is or how you do it. They only care about numbers and won't actually listen to concerns you have. They'll tell you they'll take action but never do. The response is generally "I'll send an email about that." To whom, who knows. Arrow says they value their employees but its all a lie. They like you as long as you shut up and produce. Long hours and never ending mandatory overtime (currently on a 10 Saturday in a row streak) makes for burned out and bitter employees. Attendance points policy is awful too. Late for work literally 1 minute, you get a point. If you call out sick and don't have 8 hours sick time to cover it, you get a point. Leave early sick and can't cover the hours, 1 point. Call out on a Saturday, 2 points. Get anywhere between 8 and 12
ProsPay, benefits, good coworkers
ConsLong hours/weeks, terrible management and training. Management lies to you.

If you are looking for a place that over works you and doesn't value you. Arrow Electronics is the place.
Been at the company for many years. I used to love it. But the turnover rate for management is insane recently. All the best ones left and we got stuck with the ones that look at just numbers and are just out for themselves. They promote the ones who could care less about their employees. One upper management was warned if a certain person was made in charge many people would quit or leave the dept. His response was "we can hire more people to replace them" knowing that this person makes people feel inadequate and unappreciated. Normal hours are basically 50 a week and then they make Saturdays mandatory. When they post jobs don't believe it's just 40 hours. If you want to be questioned about using the restroom this will be a perfect place for you to work. It takes forever to earn a day off or sick time. They have a 12 point system. But if you call out sick and don't have the time you get 2 points. You clock in early from lunch or a minute before your end time it's 1 point. And they don't fall off for a year. So when you hit 12 you're fired. And there is barely any advancement opportunities. They say they will give you a raise if you learn xyz but then don't. But they will still use you to their advantage buy having you do higher level things but keep you in that lower level position. And if you are good at your job they get on you if you have one bad day of productivity. Yet others can have low productivity and that's just fine. They act like you are a robot. Been actively s

a supervisor who always check his people and help to improve their productivity
i am new in this company , and i observed a lot of things, i learned from my brother and my sister in law. they are both a manager of their company. relatives are not allowed to work in the same company to avoid some problem.. As i heard and observed in the company i have seen most of the people working are relatives or families. And i know and i have seen some of them have their brother working as a part time and the sister is a regular employee. I saw her one time that she left her work and go back to the clock to log in again but she log in to the temp. clock, and after that i heard that she have a brother working in the shipping dept, as a part time, so i thinkk she do clock in for her brother because he was late at work. And their step mom always come from her mouth the word " i will give her an error " and also i heard she said to her friend that she fix the error of her friend. i don't have any intension or get them fired at work, coz i know how hard to get a job here in the US and they have kids to support. And some workers also who get an incentive are cheating the company. they make an exeption card but what they did they went to the rest room and phone. And one lady working with me i saw her throwing the remaining parts in the garbage and when i ask her why? she answer me... its a company money not yours they are rich,,,so i told her it means u don't care. and how if this company went down and we loose our job what will u do, she said she don't care. i hope that th

Be warned if your coming in temp to hire
I came in as a temp worker though tristaff group My first day on the job I arrived and went up to security to learn that no one had told them i was coming my supervisor came in greeted me plopped me on the line with the others and told someone to train me it seemed like no one wanted to talk to me or even look in my direction. After working there awhile i saw the reason it was because temp workers come and go in the blink of an eye ether because they were hired over the phone coming in to learn this is not what they thought or because the company had started receiving less work and didn't need us anymore i was the later. I always showed up to work 15 min before so i could clock in on time and always did the required overtime I was also a above average worker unfortunately that isn't enough for them, i was told to stop coming after 2 months because they didn't have enough work and didn't want to pay me anymore, oh they did tell me "you are eligible to come back when they pick up" line god knows when that will be. If you read that and still would like to take your chances; the work was easy their are a couple divisions when it comes to the technicians the ones i worked in are Seneca, OCS and RMA i was bounced around between them when work started to dwindle in one section your standing for most of the day unless your lucky enough to work in RMA were you get a chair. You have 3, 15 breaks and one 30 lunch break. times for breaks and lunch very between the sections they have

One of the best places I ever worked at...
Arrow Electronics was one of the best places I ever worked at. When it comes to compensation and work performance evaluations, Arrow has one of the best processes ever. For example, my manager hated me on what I felt was a personal level. But because Arrow has such a clear, and surprisingly objective process of work performance evaluation, I never felt snubbed for a raise or anything. I felt, because of it, the manager can't just give you a bad review just because s/he doesn't like you. Job security however, is another issue. Let's just say, Arrow lays off a massive amount of people at one time, periodically and unfortunately very frequently. Now the workplace has become a 'dog eats dog' world, with people constantly throwing others under the bus to save themselves, in case of the next batch of layoffs. it makes working there tense. Arrow encourages job work/life balance, you get 3 days to work from home. People there at the Alpharetta office, where I worked are somehow intense and uptight. but I don't think that's the company's fault, it's because most of the people working there are old and been there for years, very resistant to change and tend to form cliques as well. upward mobility, at Arrow, is at best limited. During the 2 years I was there, 70% of people promoted were males and that's being conservative. Sure, granted in that office there are more males than females, but generally males have a better chance of being promoted. The amount of micro mana

Overall good environment to be in
A day at work typically involved picking and packing orders to ship. Orders can range from 1 item being pulled to 5-600 items being pulled for the order depending on how much of a load you wanted to handle for the day. Orders usually were shipped at the end of each much so it was essential to pick majority of the orders that came in for that week otherwise they will be sitting there waiting to be picked at the end of the month. Organization was key as well as being able to balance the workload for the week. Handheld devices were used to scan in the items and computers were used to verify all assets and to ship items out the building that were on a specific order. Some weeks could be slow while other weeks were very heavy with orders and products being processed into the building. Management was for the most part reliable when questions were asked as well as getting the necessary help to finish huge orders for clients. There were cookouts, giveaways, employee appreciation days, special lunches throughout my time there. I learned alot at the business including data wiping sensitive information off of many different assets ranging from servers to computers to mobile phones to tablets. This was key because assets would come to our building to then be reshipped out later to customers who purchased the item online to be shipped. Workplace culture was good everyone got along with each other for the most part and majority of people there were very dependable if asked to help with som

Solid workplace - Be careful with Management.
This company has so much opportunity of being an incredible place to work. Unfortunately there are a few things that will take away from that. The hardest part of the job: Since Arrow is a publicly traded company - layoffs are always an issue. I worked for Arrow for 4 years and have run into 5 or 6 mass layoffs. You could be working there for 6 months of 10 years - if they need to cut costs for any reason - they WILL cut you with no notice. No opportunity for advancement - If you're looking for opportunity to move up in the company, this is not the job for you. The 'veterans' in this office have been doing the exact same job for 10-20 years with no change. Micromanagement - This is a big issue within this company. You will be micromanaged so badly, whether you're a poor performer or an All Star, to the point that you will begin to feel mentally and physically exhausted. Managers WILL get in your business, they WILL undermine your decisions in front of your customers, and they WILL consume you. Sales Targets - Don't even get me started on this one. Just expect a lot of office incentives and also expect them all to not be met. You get stat holidays off.. but management WILL harass you constantly to volunteer to work Stat Holidays. The most enjoyable part of the job: Colleagues - Management aside, the people you will meet there are all incredible. They're all going through what you're going through. No matter what kind of person you are - you w
