I worked at Samuel Shapiro & Company

Pros

small company with tons of room to grow if you want to work hard, be challenged and love logistics.

Cons

it was too fast-paced for me.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

sometimes it is hard to absorb all of the training, instruction, coaching and information that you give to us when we first start.

    I worked at Samuel Shapiro & Company

    Pros

    It is a paying internship that is flexible to allow you to go to school and make decent money at the same time.

    Cons

    The role is tedious as you are continuously browsing shipping sites for the same shipments that you already tracked in the days previous. The company is disorganized and taught me almost nothing because every other day there was a change of plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get management to sit still and understand that interns are there to learn and work not just browse the Internet. If you are not interested in teaching intens just pay the money to subscribe to the shipping websites.

    I have been working at Samuel Shapiro & Company

    Pros

    family feel, casual dress, flexible with PTO (most of the time, see cons), most clients are great to work with, good for a first, very entry level job to learn time management and problem solving

    Cons

    redundent work, micro-managed, during busy season PTO very limited, some business practices seem rudimentary, is either very boring or very stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    a bit more direction in where operations level employees can take their careers
