    Pros

    It is a great way to move forward in the industry. Many people work for CH Robinson for a couple of years and then move on to become transportation managers at smaller companies. I also loved the people that I worked with. They were down to earth and liked to have a good time but were also very hard workers.

    Cons

    My intern pay was not extremely competitive, and the starting salaries are fairly average. Again, it can be looked at as more of a stepping stone job, unless you want to move into a commission based branch or into upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Beginning compensation should be increased to draw employees away from Coyote and other competitors. Continue with the current training regimen, as that was very helpful.

    Pros

    Once you start selling on your own, you have the ability to make great money.

    Cons

    The stress for the entry level position can be overwhelming. Employees are allowed to speak to each other in whatever manner they choose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of threatening to take away commission, offer incentives.

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with. You learn so much! This is perfect for someone fresh out of college. You learn to negotiate, multitask, and have tough conversations with customers. The next interview you go on after working for Robinson will be a piece of cake, because there are so many stories and examples for you to pull from. Tough work, but it pays off.

    Cons

    Pay was low, but I am positive that I wouldn't be making today what I am if it wasn't for the experience I got working for CH. Now I make more than double what I left there making, but it was so worth it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love you guys! I still miss my branch manager and former supervisor.
