    Pros

    There is a lot of room for growth. They want employees who want to invest their work in the company and to invest in employees.

    Cons

    Slow growth. You have to prove yourself for quite a while. You have to understand the proper bureaucracy.

    I worked at Ozburn-Hessey Logistics full-time

    Pros

    I can't think of many...but if you happen to get into one of the verticals that they do well in, such as e-commerce, you can do well.

    Cons

    Recruitment is very slick, directed to make you hear everything you want to hear. This is focused on sales. Management, especially top management, has zero concern for helping anyone. Marketing is completely inept. 100% good ole boy network. They have no idea how to generate leads. If you are entering the company in a vertical that is not one of the 2 they actually have a presence in - you are completely on your own. No leads, no marketing dollars, nothing. While recruiting, they will make you believe they will back you 100% and give you all you need to be successful. This is absolutely not the case. They only want your contacts in their CRM.

    I have been working at Ozburn-Hessey Logistics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Never a shortage of work, so overtime is almost guaranteed. Friendly and amicable co-workers. Weekends off.

    Cons

    No training whatsoever for new recruits due to being way too busy. New management with seemingly no experience in the field of logistics make rash and often senseless decisions without asking employees' opinions first. Favoritism of outbound dept. over inbound dept. because "that's the money going out the door." Management constantly nitpicking and belittling employees over trivial nonsense. Depending on who you are, some are forced to work up to 16 hours a day while others get to go home after 8. Apparently it takes three managers to do the work that was previously accomplished by one.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the air conditioning from time to time and share the blood and sweat of us warehouse peons. Get your priorities straight. Figure out what's going on before you make decisions. Provide better training instead of throwing new recruits to the wolves and then terminating them after their first mistake.

    Pros

    Work hours were somewhat flexible but you will work all the time so not really a pro. Because you work all the time you do get a lot of fast experience but you will get burn out quickly.

    Cons

    If you don't want to read my whole review just take this key point "Don't work for this company if you like yourself." I will add that all I'm about to say has been said in exit interviews (including mine) with HR on multiple occasions and I know this place still operates the same way. This company doesn't have a clue how to run IT. The management rarely listens to engineers who know best for the architecture. Unfortunately this comes from the top and leaves everyone with a bad taste in their mouth. Want to be innovative? Take your ideas to a company that cares! Want to work on fun new projects? This place is as stale and repetitive as it gets. Want to streamline those stale tasks? Forget about it. IT is ran like a dinosaur there is ZERO innovation. If you don't innovate you die against your competitors! Want professional development? Better find a way to make your own investment. The service desk is a joke and you WILL be doing their job even as an engineer. There is no encouragement for them to do more or learn so they answer the phone and hand it off to you. The CIO is buddies with the director level of service so there's no changing this! If you complain about it no one cares. You will be swamped with trouble tickets. You will work pretty much non stop. The project managers demand that you work nights and weekends. No support from management on having a personal life. If you're on call forget about personal life. Something breaks and everyone is demanded to be on the phone basically because no one knows how anything works end to end. You're not encouraged to take PTO because you're always on projects. Not enough bandwidth on the teams to hand your project off for a week to take time off. If you work here you will be glad to take a job for LESS money even though their pay is barely competitive when you factor in 50-60 hour weeks, always working nights and weekends, and not taking your PTO.

    Advice to Management

    They never listened to advice before...but just in case - Hire better managers that will actually enable their team to help the company thrive. Listen when they say more resources are needed.
