    I worked at COSCO Shipping (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice office location. 20 days of vacation a year.

    Cons

    Too many to name. People with little to no industry experience hired and given decision-making positions. Very much a "who you suck up to" enviroment. Incredibly disorganized. Company has a customer is always right attitude. Very little regard for employees. Which sucks because a lot of the time the employees were merely sticking to rules for US Customs reasons.

    Pros

    Except some coworkers individual sacrifice to help you, you will receive no proper training.

    Cons

    No training at all. Cold turkey. They sent you some work screenshots and expect from you to get all done. Even if you would have had years of experience in logistics, you would still need the basic company steps to familiarize yourself but you will not get it. Payment is the lowest, work extra extra hours.
