    Pros

    Ability to relocate if desired, as well as cross train (changes jobs) with the company. Diversity of people that you will work with.

    Cons

    Not really "set" hours. They will change if you come in an hour early, or stay an hour late last minute. Constantly on your feet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come around your employees occasionally.

    I worked at Ozburn-Hessey Logistics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I would still be working at Ozburn-Hessey Logistics had I not moved to another City, State.
    The workplace was freindly and personable. Flexible with their employees.

    Cons

    One major drawback would be available growth. Not too much room to move up at the local level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider additional promotional avenues to encourage growth.

    Plenty to do but just not much room for advancement due to typical bureaucracy.

    Former Employee - Import Account Representative in Philadelphia, PA

    I worked at Ozburn-Hessey Logistics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you are actually interested in the industry and like to ask questions, you will actually learn something that you can take somewhere else

    Cons

    Not much training at all. Questions are initially frowned upon and if you get hired as an entry writer or something similar you will just be expected to get as many done as possible instead of actually learning proper Customs regulations to apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was solely concerned about numbers only because they were pressured from above. I actually have no advice to mgmt because they are all super knowledgeable but they are just following orders from above. I feel that when importers actually start to notice the cost savings and straight-forwardness of self-filing entries with third party software, the customs brokerage business will drop for the company.

    I worked at Ozburn-Hessey Logistics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay was decent. No other incentives offered.

    Cons

    Upper management did not help when new areas were expanding. they were too worried about pleasing the contracted company to make themselves look good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is for upper management not floor management. Be more willing to help mold your supervisors instead of leaving them to fend for them selves and figure it out.

    Former Employee - Customer Account Representative in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Ozburn-Hessey Logistics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    none. Compensation was less than industry standard even for Seattle. HR department messed up with my benefits and ended up taking all of my Flexible Spending Account deductions out of my pay early, 3 months early. Then they refused to credit me back, so I ended up putting in $1200 before the benefit year began which would've been fine, but then they laid me off!

    Cons

    Training was conducted by persons unfamiliar with how to do trainings. Leadership style dictatorship. No opportunity for professional growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't expect more than what you can afford to pay for by way of talented employees.

    Pros

    Really there weren't many pros at all. This company doesn't care about anything but a saving a dollar.

    Cons

    Company doesn't take care of it's human resource at all. They overextend everyone and treat them horribly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your management team incentives for working 80 hours a week. Make them feel appreciated.
