    I have been working at Hanjin Logistics full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The current coworkers there now are very great.

    Cons

    Management is pretty bad and has gotten worse since I started.
    If you're trained for certain things, very rarely will they allow you a PO day.
    Don't know how to hire new people; majority of them will quit within 2 weeks.
    Managers always asking you to work overtime.
    The HR is bad and

    You have a high tolerance (appreciation?) for pain if you stay there for more than 1 year.

    I worked at Hanjin Logistics

    Pros

    Working at Hanjin Logistics (aka Hanjin Intermodal USA) might give you a first taste of what it's like to work in the logistics industry in the day-to-day operations, but that's about it. At best an average (but probably sub-par) opportunity to get your foot in the door in the industry.

    Cons

    Hanjin Logistics is nominally part of the larger Hanjin Group, which also owns Korean Airlines, amongst other companies.

    But even though in reality the company is separately owned, they inherited the staid and inflexible corporate culture (mindset) from their mother company, which is based in South Korea. In short, it's: PURE. OFFICE. POLITICS. Tread carefully if you take a job with them.

    The 'higher-ups' (discreetly) discourage most casual interaction, because they feel that a casual environment is 'distracting' and decreases productivity. They really do expect bland, mindless drones at this Korean company.

    Given this ramrod stiff and oppressive social atmosphere, it's no stretch or exaggeration to say that the majority of the employees there are chronically stressed and unhappy, even depressed. Everyone is working for a paycheck and gets no enjoyment from their jobs, including middle management.

    Of course on top of this, you have to put up with sub-standard industry pay and salary. We're talking about 20% less than a comparable American company.

    My advice is to just stick it out the best you can for one year if you need a job, then start applying to other logistics companies that can provide a superior work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please treat your employees with basic respect and appreciation, and pay them what they are worth. If a more friendly, casual work environment were maintained and employees were compensated fairly, you may actually see better work performance.
