      Great company but too large to advance fairly

      Pros

      Great overall network, people, and benefits. Market communication is some if the best in the industry and family health benefits are ideal.

      Cons

      Promotion, unless you are an original Phoenix International employee or favored as an individual, is near impossible. The company is so large promotion positions are hard to come by, too. Their women-in-leadership program is corporate jargon to promote a handful of women to set the appearance they care about diversity in the workforce. Overall, men still dominate the scene in management, and are often advanced faster than women. The office you work for will make or break your career. While some managers are great, others will bet against your success; even when largely responsible for overseeing your career's success. For sales, their file profitability report is not always accurate and is hard to dispute. You will feel cheated at times. They will pull accounts away last minute, even when at the onboarding stage, and credit to higher titled sales reps if you sell above your swim lane vs promoting you. For sales, a promotion is $10-15k higher annual salary but 100% more required rolling-12 annual NET profit. The NET increase requirements don't balance out the stress to hit numbers that the title or pay offer.

      Pros

      Good benefits, relaxed atmosphere / casual dress, decent entry salary, necessary work place equipment provided. Work from home two days a week.

      Cons

      Repetitive work, kind of a dull industry, as of May 2021 company is doing a reinvent the wheel type restructure.

      Clear, consistent expectations, fantastic management. Pay is definitely entry-level.

      Pros

      CHR gives very clear and consistent fair standards for productivity and efficiency (e.g. touch X number of loads per hour). In my experience these were very fair and easy to maintain/exceed. These are the basis for raises, improvement plans, etc. My management was also extremely helpful and open to questions and suggestions. The overall company culture seems positive, but this is also my first office job. They seem to provide good benefits, but I haven't had much of a reason to use the health/dental insurance in my ~6 months on the job.

      Cons

      The wage is the main reason I would leave. The $16/hr is reasonable for this entry-level role, but it's still low for where I want to be.

      Pros

      Decent Benefits PTO time good & you get 2 floating holidays per year.

      Cons

      Work life balance No career advancement; no clear path for promotions. They are restructuring the company and giving new titles but aren’t changing pay or being transparent on any new changes. This was a great place to work a few years ago but with the new CEO things became really ‘corporatized’.

      Pros

      I have been with CH Robinson only 8months but I am really enjoying it. Great work life balance. Very supportive supervisor Satisfying work You’re always busy which is a good thing. Great Team and wonderful people to work with. The customers I work with are awesome as well. Decent PTO and medical benefits. A lot of flexibility is offered in terms of schedule. Potential for growth.

      Cons

      Pay is on the lower end for starters only 16/h. When you’re hired as temp none of the time worked accumulates as pto when brought on full time. They are gunning for a July back to office timeline, most people don’t want to go back to 5 days in the office. No bonus or commission for collectors at least none that I know off.

      Pros

      PTO and benefits. Holidays off. There was nothing else really good or halfway decent about this job

      Cons

      The most ridiculous employee turnover rate I've ever see in a company. Clicky. Ridiculously bad or training. They literally throw you into a stressful environment with little to no support. They'll interview you like 3 different times and then do a weird panel interview. You feel like you're being interviewed for a six figure salary, when really its an entry level $18.00 hr. job. Overall weird place to work
