    I have been working at C.H. Robinson Worldwide full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Entry Level pay is very competitive
    Medical Benefits are a plus
    Environment and Culture are unmatched
    Great entry level job right out of college. If you show your dedication, loyalty, flexibility, and hard working attitude then you will be rewarded. Like anything in life. This company empowers their employees to make huge financial decisions at the desk level everyday on day one of employment. This encourages the entrepreneurial spirit! They provide you with the people, processes, and technology to help you be successful and advance your career.

    Cons

    I will have to admit that compensation structure has always been convoluted and top heavy but has evolved over the past 8-10 years. Still needs to be addressed to keep great talent in-house.
    Tough job to enter in as a business professional due to the work/life balance the first 2-5 years of your career to establish yourself. Best to enter this industry right out of college as it will set you up for success with any company outside the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at C.H. Robinson Worldwide as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The jobs are easy. They are willing to train you on anything. They really try to bring the company together by putting on events. The people are nice.

    Cons

    This company is definitely not for anybody that is under 30 years old. Everybody is older and excepts you to know the same amount of information as them. Younger people might find the work too easy since most things are done on a database.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you hire people that are actually interested in logistics. Don't force logistics on them.

    Pros

    you get the potential to earn great money. training is very thorough and sets you up for success. never take work home with you.

    Cons

    long hours. stressful. as good as you're doing, it's not good enough. when the market is good, it's good; when the market is bad, it's miserable. you can only grow your business, you can rarely advance your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need more programs and incentives to help newer employees succeed in a highly competitive industry.

    Good experience for new college grads. You will learn a work ethic that will future employers will admire. Great brand to have on your resume.

    Stay a couple of years to build your resume then get out. No future career path. Senior employees with 10+ years at company leaving because they are getting screwed on compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lost cause. Great stock to own though! But so is Wal-Mart (a great stock), but they don't take caref employees.

    Pros

    Excellent transition into the real world, good QuickStart training program, fast paced, keeps you engaged. Great stepping stone into larger sales role in better industry. Stay 1.5 to 2 years MAX.

    Cons

    Flat company, low salary, management can be harsh at times, work life balance is BAD at times. Want you in there at 7/730 and can't leave until 530/6 sometimes. Mentally exhausting, job gets very monotonous after doing same thing for 18 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Opportunities for advancement need to be opened up, not just Rep-Team Lead-GM
