Management Trainee | Boston, MA | Mar 5, 2020
Managerial and Customer Service Nightmare
I would like to make anyone applying to the NorthEast area (in particular, the Boston District, which includes Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont) to be aware of the many issues that I encountered working with this company. I had worked in at PENSKE for many years and noticed newer managers changed their support levels for employees in a very negative way. Current employees need to reserve the truck for the customer first and ask questions later. Then, they are required to find the truck by calling other employees throughout the district. Often you are talking to other employees who are on the same level as you. Then, of course, you find that these locations are hoarding trucks, so you call a manager who says to call someone else and then get back to them. It turns into a cycle of unproductive calls, and at the end of the day, nothing gets achieved. The northern locations have distances that are so vast that delivering trucks is a nightmare. You only have one driver that works, but you need to get multiple trucks to where they need to be by a particular day or time, so you are told by managers to delay customers by several hours at a minimum. There is also a national call center that books trucks, so expect to be calling customers to delay their move by a couple of hours or even a day depending on what happens. Expect calls from customers whose trucks break down. It is a frequent occurrence and only gets worse when you are face to face with them, and they are ...more

Run Away From This Location
If you want absolutely little to no work-life balance, then come work here. You will be expected to answer calls at any and every time of the day and night. You will be expected to cover weekends, making a 6-7 work week. Out with family, trying to have a life, doesn’t matter. This company will make sure they own you and try to monopolize every bit of your time that they are able. Constant meetings and/or training on days off or outside normally scheduled hours as well. There’s a lot to learn here at first, but there’s not much to do. The pace of the business is slow and almost stagnant at this location. When you’re the new person, colleagues will dump as much as they can on you to lessen their workload. Had another colleague nitpick over the orientation of scanned files 4 times because apparently, fixing them themselves was too cumbersome and took away from their 2 hour daily lunch break and constant smoking outside. There’s a lot of nepotism where I worked. One supervisor was hired because he had been friends with higher up management for 17 years. He’s a good supervisor, but he’s allowed to work 4-5 hour days while everyone else doesn’t. Upper management will talk a lot of trash about anyone the second they’re not present; from management to warehouse, everyone and their lives are a joke to this weasel. Very cold and calculating individual. One day it snowed to the point roads were being closed and travels bans were getting put into place. This guy mocked, lau...more

Senior Analyst | El Paso, TX | Oct 6, 2018
Quiet, but very busy and demanding position.
I provided key insight into process inadequacies and areas in need of improvement, for vendors and corporate departments across the globe. As each process shortfall was identified, I worked with our team members on the implementation of the new process, to maximize productivity and ensure contract compliance. I was also responsible for analyzing the larger and more complex supplier accounts. Worked independently to regularly analyze each account and identify any unusual payment trends, or those that fell outside of the current contract. Developed and implemented action plans to correct and prevent these issues from recurring. Maintaining a problem tracking and resolution database (Microsoft SharePoint) was also part of my work day. I also hosted a weekly forum (conducted in Spanish) with pertinent manufacturing plant/upper management personnel to discuss the current, or potential, barriers that could create future supplier payment issues and rendered support to prevent the issues from occurring/recurring. I prepared meeting minutes, outgoing correspondence, customized reports, and graphs/charts. Reviewed these items for clarity, consistency, completeness and compliance with established policy. Maintained a correspondence tracking system (Microsoft Outlook) to ensure deadlines were met and assignments were completed. In the event ,my manager was away, I served as the manager in her absence. I also trained, developed, provided guidance, and mentored the ...more

Order Picker | Chesterfield, MI | Feb 22, 2020
Great place to work for people who want a physically active/demanding job and can handle a variety of personality types from friendly to insulting.
Training is provided, but if the work expectations aren't up to par within the first couple months the worker is eliminated (whether the issue is work accuracy, work speed, attendance, etc). So new workers are common, but in my experience working there, each was given the same opportunity to remain long term. Employees from all walks of life can make the brief interactions throughout the day anything from enjoyable & respectful to funny & entertaining to downright abrasive & detrimental. There's a fair (but not excessive) degree of coworker politics, but for those who can handle a bit of banter or even the occasional argument or "unprofessionalism", even the worst of it can be shrugged off. For the inexperienced in training, patience can certainly be tested early on as skills are developed working here. The pay is decent though, with the potential to climb even higher for those who find ways to be recorded into their system as performing the tasks quickly enough to qualify for the types of "maintaining a faster-than-expected working speed" pay incentive offered - if the average lasts throughout the entire week. Machines are kept functioning by maintenance, but a number of the machines can use more thorough repairs so that there is less stress when trying to find a fully functional (or at least "functional enough") machine to use before the shift starts. There is mild competition for the best machines prior to each shift, but it is typically handled respectfully in my...more
ProsGood pay and pays weekly, Willingness to train inexperienced employees
ConsUnpredictable work day lengths (different each day depending on demand), Numerous "check digits" are faded or otherwise damaged (slowing personal work speed)

Supply Chain Analyst | Dearborn, MI | Jul 2, 2019
Fast Paced, Competitive, and Productive work environment
Penske Logistics is a large company that has multiple automotive accounts that are managed on different levels and each account produces it's own set of challenges and rewards. As a Supply Chain Analyst, much of the focus was on identifying potential cost savings for the accounts through route optimization. Pending on the account, this will vary from extensive data mining through forecasting or plant visits through waste walks. Aside from optimizing cost savings for the accounts, much of the work will be focused on maintaining route structure and launching new lanes. This part of the job will take some time and patience to understand. Communication and participation is key to successfully setting up transportation between the account and it's ODC's/Suppliers. Be prepared to take notes, ask questions, and setup conference calls in order to fully complete this part of the job. Between managing routes and optimizing cost savings the analyst must be prepared to hit deadlines and be organized. Balancing daily tasks with long tem projects can be difficult, however, the senior analysts as well as coworkers are willing to help as long as your honest with your requests. Pending on the work load for each account there may be low morale with a few employees/accounts. IT support is centralized for the most part so those type of requests may take longer than usual to have completed. Aside from these two issues, working at Penske Logistics is a competitive company that will help you develo...more

Stay Away
This environment is unnecessarily stressful partially due to the arrogant and demeaning attitude from upper management. Your work is hardly ever appreciated and consistently scrutinized by certain individuals who lack the manners to communicate appropriately and effectively. Instead of expanding team members, your work load becomes unmanageable at times which only heightens their need to berate your efforts. You are required to work with individuals who have little or no respect for other memebers of the team and/or other employees. Cursing, throwing boxes, intentionally ignoring direct questions, and overall terrible professional attitude. You can forget bringing your concerns to HR. That department lacks the professionalism and verbal etiquette it requires as well. Be prepared to have your paychecks be consistently wrong every week. Favorites are unanimously played here and the gossip circle is strong making you feel like you’re back in high school. Management has a dismal approach to dealing with certain levels of concern so do not be disappointed if they tell you to just “deal with it”. Yearly incentives are a joke and so is the starting salary; if you can even call it that. No one ever takes responsibility and it is a constant finger pointing game. Terrible atmosphere. Terrible management. Terrible culture. It’s a shame such a high profiled company doesn’t regard their employees as valuable. You’re just a number and always replaceable. STAY AWAY.

Maintenance Supervisor | Harriman, NY | Mar 2, 2019
horrible place to work. abusive customers management and long hours
when i was interviewed i was told it was 9 hr a day management position. my manager had me working more than 12 hour days with no breaks and my lunch barely 20 minutes long. very fast pace. they have you working outside in rain and snow in bitter winter cold with no gear issued to me. finally got my uniforms after 2 months. their customers are some of the nastiest people to deal with. the corporate culture is horrible. the management team stick together so forget about complaining because your complaints against supervisors will go nowhere. i complained to HR and i was told that i was a problematic worker after being there such a short time. expect to work 60 hrs because associates dont get paid overtime and they take advantage of you. they wave a yearly bonus of 4 to 12k a year but after speaking to the other managers the average bonus was just 3k. on your 2 days off they expect you to be on call and be answering questions and concerns and phone calls from your customers that after working 60 hr week. thats why they issue you a phone and a laptop. the harriman supervisor job is posted every other month because nobody stays. it was the most horrible job i had in my lifetime and i worked in factories when i was very young. stay far away from this place. there is a reason they are always posting fleet maintenance supervisor job. it sucks!!

Logistics Analyst
I would arrive at the plant and typically search the inbound truck freight to search for parts that were deemed to be OUT OF STOCK in less that 24hrs. From that point, I would make sure on of the plant floor supervisors were aware that they had to unload a certain trailer number as their 1st priority of the day. After that communication took place, I would go into my normal routine of plant trailer audits, make necessary adjustments to the entire GM Plant Logistical Plan. Route designing of truckloads and milkruns was constantly changing due to flexes in the demand for the HUMMER H2 vehicle. I learned so much about working as a team to keep the entire wheel of production turning. It was very excitiing at times and very demanding at other times. I loved to see the product go down the line and to know I was part of that team was a good feeling to me. The management and culture was mixed together. We had a small offfice of 5-7 Penske subcontract employees. The hardest part of the job was to keep everyone communicated to during the production. 2 way radios were a huge blessing to solve problems. Cell phones would not work inside the plant. I loved that the day would start and we would be busy and it would be the afternoon time before we knew it. I enjoyed being part of a team that got to see the Hummer H2 produced.

Inventory Associate | Auburn, WA | Sep 2, 2019
Slave driving company: Management Lied and HR Personnel is a JOKE
I had acquired an Inventory Clerk position in July and let me just say; My interview was 43 minutes late and the manager wasn’t even aware of having an interview with me in the first place. Their HR operations had people come down from their Riverside, CA location which none of them where kind, approachable, or helpful. They seemed to not want to be associated with anyone who works in the warehouse. The interview was held in a dirty, nasty, secluded portable trailer where they also held their break area. The operations manager was so rude when I approached his work space to inform him about being there for an interview but he shoo’d me away. I got hired, okay cool...but on orientation day, it was held in a regular run down Best Western hotel room re-arranged with with portable tables and an HR Rep who barely knew what he was talking a bout (flew in from CA). These were just red flags FLARING in my face. My first day there: no introductions to staff. They confused me as a temp employee. They threw me around to do other tasks outside of what I was originally hired for. Overall, the whole experience of being there was so bad I never came back after my first day. They seriously are slave drivers, plays favoritism with anyone who has been there over a year, and they don’t care about people’s days off. Look elsewhere. DO NOT WORK FOR THESE PEOPLE.

If you were in charge, what would you do to make Penske Truck Leasing a better place to work?
Asked Jul 17, 2017
Pay is way way to low. Especially for the way the start times can change from one day to the next. Management has no respect for employees communication is horrible not across the board for all employees so many get left out of the loop. Promises made were not kept. Then it was all excuses. And yet more promises to fix the problem.

What tips or advice would you give to someone interviewing at Penske Truck Leasing?
Asked Feb 15, 2018
Be willing to go without sleep while you wait for the other driver to get in at god knows what time. Be prepared to be wrote up for the smallest infraction instead of talked to. That camera will get you all kinds of negative points when they dont bother to ask why you made the choice you did. It's a lazy person job so expect lazy pay.
