    I worked at DB Logistics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved the people who I was in charge of and those who were my equal position. Dedicated and hard working. Made my job much easier.

    Cons

    I cannot express how very little upper management cares about the employees. They see them as expendable. They are lost within their own world. The amount of people I've watched leave over this are too innumerable to count.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that your company is nothing without your employees.

    Strong management with the correct stagers will make the job of a coordinator a breeze.

    Pros

    Free coffee and hot chocolate

    Cons

    Company run from Germany. Great clients and customers, but they have run off a lot of business since acquisition. They do not understand the US market or customer and have abandoned hundreds of loyal customers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire middle mgmt that know and undertand the business and those who will stand up to Germany and think on their own.

    The people you work with

    Cons

    Inept management, starting in germany and trickling down.

    Advice to Management

    When you buy a company dont lie to your employess that you want to keep the US domestic product
    going when in fact you did not. A 4 TO 5 YEAR LIE . Then send out a memo A WEEK before xmas (CLASIC) stating it will be over SOON " A realignment " At least your giveing these people a 2 month notice. Gentleman you could have done well if you let the Baxglobal people run the domestic instead of allowing foreign 20somethings who are completly clueless, but have a degree to run a division they are completely inept at ??.Yes it needed a few changes, this was not the way to go guys . To all dbschenker emplyees who are affected goodluck.
