    Pros

    The best thing about working here is the experience you get in shipping export import ...SAP training Oracle and excel knowledge

    Cons

    Too much work for so little pay ..if the pay match the work load i would have no complaints

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people you can not hire educated folks and pay 35 and 40k and expect people to work way past standard hours go above and beyond for your company and not be properly compensated the stress alone is work over 58

    Pros

    The people that you dealt with every day, both internally and externally, is what made the job enjoyable

    Cons

    The reorganization was stressful for all involved. Communication is always an important part of company culture and this was difficult to begin with and became even more difficult during the transition.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck in the future.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for this company is to gain some experience in a logistically company. The pay and benefits were average for full time employees unless you were on the executive board. Indoor cafeteria, nice building, decent co-workers were some of the good reasons to work for this company other than that there were no much added value,

    Cons

    Downsides are no job security, low morale, managers do not like to associate with lower levels, no one willing to provide challenging work. Other down sides are pay and benefits are about average if not dismal...work life balance is none as there were employees on weekend shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get in tune with the employees and learn a little bit more about the day to day functions at the operational level. Senior management seems too afraid to meet and greet those in the company that make the difference.

  8. Learned alot, and earned alot

    Pros

    it is big and very good at logistics and the people are very supportive to new employees. work life balance is average

    Cons

    it is too big and hard to advance the career hierarchy but still possible for anyone willing to work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on the details and look at the big picture of the organization. Support employees and push them towards more education
