One of the best and most successful RoRo operators.

Cons

Some mid managers are below par.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not elevate a supervisor to manager level only because he or she may be a temporary solution. In the long term that choice could be a drag.

    Little work-life balance, though the work wasn't bad.

    I worked at Wallenius Wilhelmsen full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There was loads of overtime.
    Monthly gainshare from $1.00-$2.50/hour.
    Decent benefits.
    It is a GREAT part time job and an extremely stressful full time job. I speak from experience as a college student.

    Cons

    NO work-life balance at all. Some weeks, we would work 70 hours per week.
    We had no idea how long we would be working each day until we actually got off. Sometimes we found out Friday night at quitting time that we'd have to work Saturday and Sunday.
    People were not very organized and we would have to do things in very inefficient ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat lower employees as you would want to be treated. Understand that family comes before work and try to be more accommodating and flexible.

    Pros

    WWL is a very forward thinking company and is constantly looking at the world market to determine what it needs to do to stay on top of the RORO sector. They value work/life balance and reward their employees for innovation. Great way to expose oneself to a truly global company at a regional level.

    Cons

    Has a very flat structure with most of the big decisions made from head office in Oslo. As they are not adverse to making difficult strategic decisions, job security is not guaranteed.
