    You can get global experience and the people are great!

    The new Brambles CEO is all work and no play so the culture has changed. It is a bit more tense and you have to demonstrate your worth every day.

    Make the Orlando office more of an enjoyable atmosphere.

    Pros

    Supply chain exposure and industry learnings.

    Cons

    The HR/recruitment process is extremely underwhelming. You expect a high level of professionalism and organization. This was not the case. Minimal communication, a lack of follow up, and errors with compensation were the case.

    Advice to Management

    Actually show people that you care when hiring and promoting vs simply treating it transactionally. Even if the personal part didn’t change, just do the transaction correctly.

    Pros

    Paycheck, continual work, if you like Florida then the nice weather.

    Cons

    I've worked at Chep for several years. W Hopkins is very challenging to work with and is unreasonable. I do not recommend working with Chep due to the representation with W Hopkins.

    Advice to Management

    Reassess the challenging people for other roles and how they represent your business.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, PTO and good people

    Cons

    No work life balance, leadership team lacks vision, implement no plans without giving the plan time to show benefits, some cut throat leaders, more ego than action in logistics & planning leadership at the time

    Advice to Management

    Put your ego away and understand that your team works incredibly hard to get results and abusive management gets you no where. People give so much of their lives to their work and deserve to have you stand up for work life blance and treat them with care and respect.
