    Great Place to Begin a career with friendly people, great benefits package, and culture.

    Management is doing a great job, very responsive and knows how to encourage and train.

    I have been working at Hyundai Glovis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Medical/Dental/Vision insurance, paid holidays, proximity to home. Located at the hear my of Orange County. Recognizes subsidiary of Hyundai motor group.

    Cons

    Doesn’t hold senior managers who create a hostile work environment accountable for their actions creating an arrogance for them to act with impunity. There are many senior managers who graduated from The University of Phoenix (Fake, For-Profit School). What does that tell you about their management caliber and standards. No training standards whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the one senior manager who is creating the hostile work environment across all departments. That act alone will solve the attrition problem. Stop hiring Phoenix grads.

    I worked at Hyundai Glovis full-time

    Pros

    The pay amount here at Hyundai is very good I started off at 15$s. I was lucky that I was hired through the company which was a bonus because lay-offs would not have an affect on days of work. Another perk about Hyundai is the slow pace environment there. Make sure this is something that you would enjoy.

    Cons

    Cons about Hyundai are a few. More than there is pros. The first con would be the slow-pace working environment, if your not an individual who finds ways to keep yourself busy, it would be hard for you. Second con management does not care about emergencies, your expected to be there come snow, thunder, etc. Sucks! Third con team work is highly spoken about but its never practice.

    Advice to Management

    Take a very long vacation!

    I worked at Hyundai Glovis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Insurance benefits are great

    2. Very easy-going and laid back environment. Depending on the department and who your boss is, there might be lots of cases where you don’t work at all for the whole day. Employees can also take 2-3 hrs lunch without anyone caring

    3. Some people are nice. Some people have no manners (wearing slippers at work, taking off shoes at meetings, laughing out loud at other people in meetings, etc.) and can be cold and rude, but overall people here are nice

    Cons

    1. Rampant racism and discrimination
    >> Korean is the superior race in GLOVIS. Once you set foot inside, it’s like you’re working for a company in Korea. Daily work and meetings almost all the time half-conducted in Korean language (meaning English is spoken with Korean thrown in at least half the time), even though there are people in the meetings or emails that don’t speak Korean

    >> No equal opportunity for all employees to succeed. The company provides Koreans with easy path to succeed by providing more opportunities for their Korean employees (see below). Example: Emails, meetings in Korean language that give the non-Koreans the short end of the stick because they will always be left out of some parts of the business decisions/discussions that have been made. If you don’t know what’s being discussed and subsequently, the decision that was made, how can you work at the same pace as the Koreans? You will always play catch-up with the fellow Korean colleagues. Bottom line, GLOVIS gives the upper hand to the Korean employees. This is the reason a lot of non-Korean employees are upset

    >> In some departments, only people that speak Korean can be Manager level or above because the reports always have to be in Korean (most reports to senior management are in 2 versions: English and Korean). So the non-Koreans after a while don’t feel that they need nor want to work hard because there is no future for them – no chance for a promotion. This is one of the reasons lots of employees quit recently

    >> Almost all consultants/contractors hired are Koreans (some even brought all the way from Korea), and they don’t speak English well. Hence, the Korean employees in GLOVIS are the automatic choice to work with those consultants because of the language issue. Just unfair. It is SYSTEMATIC DISCRIMINATION

    2. Hostile, toxic working environment
    >> Lots of yelling, cursing and bullying. In Port Operations and IT from what I have heard. This kind of behavior shouldn’t be accepted. This is one of the reasons lots of employees leave the company recently

    3. You will feel unappreciated
    >> No matter how hard you work, unless you’re either Korean or liked by your boss, you won’t move up

    4. You will be treated as second-class citizen
    >> Koreans treat you like you’re below them – ignoring you when they pass by you, talking in Korean in meetings and emails, promoting Koreans faster and in some depts even only promoting the Koreans

    5. Rampant favoritism
    >> If your superior likes you, you can be promoted quickly. Port Operations has been known to promote people that can only smooch to upper management. Someone was promoted not long after they join the department while other people in other department was denied promotion. Just no clear rule of how you can get promoted. You basically don’t have to do much work if somebody in high position likes you. I’ve seen this myself when I worked there

    6. Overall, some departments work like horse while other departments hardly work. Koreans are ordered to work like crazy (weekends, crazy hours) and yelled at. The non-Koreans are ignored (no chance of promotion if your department has mostly Koreans) and sometimes not even being talked to as they prefer to speak to other Koreans (literally ignored). There are only very few teams that have a good mixed of Korean and non-Korean (Parts for example)

    Advice to Management

    1. Value your employees. Appreciate and reward your good employees. Remove the bad employees. This is the reason people are fleeing

    2. Stop discriminating against non-Korean employees. This is the reason people are fleeing

    3. Hire people that know what they’re doing. You can’t just shuffle people from 1 dept to another. They might not be qualified

    4. Can’t stress this enough: Stop the racism and discrimination in your workplace. It’s only a matter of time before the company is sued. Also, virtually everyone I knew there are actively looking for a job because of this

    5. The Manager level and above need to work. Don’t just delegate and push it to lower-level employees. They need guidance, support and training

    6. Give a chance for your employees to better themselves – training, promotion, etc. So they at least can feel they grow as they work in the company. The feeling of having no future is one of the reasons people are fleeing

    Pros

    good insurance is only benefit.

    Cons

    1. this is not typical company in america - but just think as you are working in foreign country with Korean way.
    2. graveyard for the high tech engineer -- everybody thinks that their carrier are dead 6 months after joining -- especially IT
    3. technology is super super outdated here and Glovis is still thinking old fashion of coding as "best integration method". Gloivs IT technology is 10~15 years old and none of engineers are following new tread of IT technology.
    4. very poor management and no appreciation
    5. threatening and shouting are often seen
    6. 100% not recommended for non-korean speaking engineers

    Advice to Management

    1. Please, this is America and don't apply Korean cultural working environment.
    2. Glovis trains newbie and let them go after 1~2 years because the salary range is very low - overall.

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Dependents are well taken care of.

    Cons

    Start rate for salary is very low. Promotions needs to be approved by Korea HQ and takes a very long time to be approved.
