    I worked at CEVA Logistics

    Pros

    Can be a fascinating place to work if you like logistics, warehousing, materials handling, contract management and transportation.

    Cons

    High turn-over and constant layoffs of line and middle management positions, politics, below market salaries and benefits, and unsettling atmosphere of mergers and acquisitions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Investment Banker owners, executives and managers need to focus more on improving leadership in an organization which is highly dependent upon quality control, contract management, positive employee relations and customer relations.

    Pros

    There is new and different work every day. They just recently introduced a training program that is working well. Excellent people to work with.

    Cons

    They could use some help motivating their associates better. They also need to have better enforcement when associates do not perform, or are being messy and not cleaning their work areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward those associates who show they care. Current rewards are very few and far between.

    I worked at CEVA Logistics as a contractor for more than 10 years

    Pros

    No forced dispatch, what you get out of your week is dependent on what you are willing to put into it.

    Cons

    If you are the type who feels the world "owes you" and are not willing to go that extra mile or pull that "not so great" load now and again, then don't expect to get "FED" those gravy runs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication!!!

    I have been working at CEVA Logistics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Looks good on resume to other companies - gained life experience that can't be taught. The come to work and clockin and shop online mentality is over looked by management. Gossip is ok and laziness is promoted if thats your thing. Tenure wins even when bullying is seen and reported.

    Cons

    No respect, No culture awareness, No hard work ethics shown by most. No raise in 3 years! Half dont know how to do their job, but want to make rules for you to follow on how to do yours. Tenure wins hands down even if they are totally wrong in their actions. No communication umungst Agents, Coworkers or management. Bitter attitudes ALL Around. Management believe they can talk down and expected great results. Sexual favoritism and racial overtone is showed in daily actions. You realize the antics and either become them or try and stay away from them. You are criticised for not being involved with the gossip and are labelled as an outcast. You diligently work harder to escape the day to day shenanigans of people not wanting to answer phones or not knowing how to send an attachment on an email or find a file, but are able to hold personal conversations about buying shoes while the phones are ringing and people are on hold. You try and smile when a blind transferred call is sent to you, but when it happens to them they run and tell management. You try and overlook when tenured colleagues speak to people negatively on the phone as you will be reprimanded if you speak on it and will be seen as the trouble maker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promoting your agenda, its working. Nothing said will penetrate the narcissistic, condescending and pompous views shared by current GM

    I have been working at CEVA Logistics

    Pros

    We get paid weekly but they pay by cost of living and if you stay in a small town you get small town pay, whereas, if you live in a big city and your terminal is located there then you will be paid slightly higher than one that live in a small town. However, cost of living is expensive everywhere even in small town that has more than 75,000 people. Their benefits have gotten better.

    Cons

    The equipment we use(tractors, trailers, etc)needs to be improved or replaced with newer ones. DOT love inspecting Ceva's old 1970 something tanker equipment so you drivers beware. Pay is really not good for what we do(fuel tanker driver). If it won't for getting overtime(20 hrs or more) I wouldn't work there period. Especially with starting pay 13.00 hr. Communication between who we contract for, who we work for, and the drivers can be horrendous at times. But overall, this is a decent place to work because overtime comes with the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to employees more to understand what is going on and what is needed to perform the job. Pay to match with other fuel haulers would be exceptional.

    Management. I feel they tell you what they think you want to hear. Make promise they don't keep. Lazy employees.
