    Pros

    Owned by Mitsui of Japan, a financially strong/conservative international company. Transfreight had offices in USA, Canada, and Mexico. Learned a lot about kaizen (continuous improvement). Most people have a sense of humor.

    Cons

    Was often slow on decision-making and had a culture of micromanagement at one time (maybe both of these have changed with new management).

    Advice to Management

    Accelerate calculated risk-taking and growth (maybe they have by now).

  2. Very stressful environment

    Pros

    Mostly work with a good group of people. Benefits are good. Time-off policies for salaried personnel is exceptional. Compensation is decent. Leadership is laid back.

    Cons

    Hard to move up unless willing to move out of state.

    Advice to Management

    Management tends to roll over for the customer, need to be more assertive.

  3. Allows business practice to get in the way of loyalty towards the employee

    Pros

    Keeps you busy, fast paced. chance for advancement after one year. not much else to say as a pro. other than to say its a job.

    Cons

    Old equipment the shunt truck I'm using is 8 years old and poorly maintained. Little to no training on the job your assigned. Pay is way below what it should be, if there is a mistake in your pay it takes a long time to get it fixed. If one of the shunt drivers has a day off, management waits until the last min to try to get someone to fill in, leaving the other shunt driver to do the extra work.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to drivers suggestions better,we're the ones out there doing the job and things look a lot different behind the wheel of the trucks than behind a desk.

  10. A good job for problem-solvers

    Pros

    Transfreight is a good place to work for anyone interested in logistics and analyzing problems. The company generally promotes from within whenever possible, and tries to be as responsive as possible by adopting Toyota's kaizen philosophy.

    Cons

    Some of the supervisors are not particularly respectful of their employees. Furthermore, traffic coordinators are expected to change shifts every few months, which makes it difficult to schedule any personal activities.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people to work specific shifts instead of constantly changing shifts, and provide employees with more positive feedback when they excel.
