    I worked at CHEP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    the office environment is friendly, and most (see comment below) employees are great to work with and be around. CHEP gives back to the community, and encourages a good work life balance.

    Cons

    HR constantly changes its hiring strategy, which creates culture clash. It seems like they have a salary in mind then try to find a viable candidate, rather than find the right candidate and pay accordingly. Also, there is a subgroup of employees who would rather play office politics than work towards achieving goals.

    Advice to Management

    Hire educated, passionate employees, and create an environment where challenging the status quo is encouraged.

    Invest more in your people. Training is non existent.

    Pros

    Good salary/benefits. Opportunity to move within the company. Encourages employees to be good citizens in the community.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. It is talked about as a priority, however the workload does not allow it. Long hours are expected. There is a trend of expecting more work to be done by fewer employees. Too many executives and not enough workers.

    Advice to Management

    You have some good people. Don't burn them out.

    Pros

    Great work life balance amazing benefits and the majority of the staff are friendly and welcoming

    Cons

    If you don't have a degree you don't have much upward mobility. It's a great place to work and to learn. The challenge is getting stuck in one role.

    Advice to Management

    know the ethics of your employees and stand by them in difficult situations.
