    Advice to Management

    I’ve been working for GLOVIS for several years. I started at a lower level position and have a fairly remarkable success story with regards to advancements and promotions. When I read some of the negative comments I’m surprised at how vitriolic people can be after leaving the company. I don’t believe it’s fair to judge a company by the people who leave and decide to trash the company because they were terminated or feel somehow slighted.
    I’ve had the benefit of sharing a positive association with management, HR and day to day staff. I’ve learned how to speak a little Korean and find the culture and work ethic fascinating. Logistics is not for the faint of heart. Every position is challenging and demanding, the deadlines looming and you will find multiple fires to put out simultaneously. Few people are cut out for that type of pressure.
    My experience is that if you take accountability for your area of concern and effectively deploy next best steps then you will have an enduring career here. I think people often confuse longevity or seniority for expertise. Some disgruntled employees ignore the reality that they could work in a field for 10 years but that doesn’t mean they were handling their position with any degree of functionality—it could be that they were happily skating under the radar for extended periods of time until they were exposed. I have experienced people who harness a sense of privilege based solely on their longevity; ignoring their own inability to effect change. They choose to scapegoat management rather than face their own inadequacies.
    My experience with GLOVIS Executive Management and our HR department is one of working alongside departments and individuals (CEO/Coordinators/ National Managers/Field Managers down to the remarkable union members performing day to day processing etc.) dedicated to the success of its customers and employees. It continues to be a pleasure to work here. We ship cars and we do it well.

    Pros

    Can’t thinks of many pros for this company other than you may meet some great people in the industry. They are usually working for other companies.

    Cons

    Where to start: grossly unsupportive middle and upper management. Zero mentor ship to entry level; extremely benign to seasoned staff. American management starting with CEO on down only concerned with keeping fat, easy positions (would sell their family’s soul to keep jobs). Korean management dictates illogical and unrealistic demands. Very biased company.

    Advice to Management

    Admit you have lowered your professional ethics to such a level that you are actually hurting others while maintaining status quo for company so QUIT! Finds your ethics and what does count and see if you can redeem some sense of humanity

    The benefits are great and the shutdown period annually is unparalleled

    The 24x7 calls are a nightmare and they tend to lock in salaries for years without adjusting the starting range

    Pros

    Health Benefits paid at 100% if you work in Irvine Headquarters, but management uses this to offset low salaries. Week between Christmas and New Year is given as Holiday, but most are still expected to work. It’s a joke.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional management that lead with emotion, meaning they don’t think before they act. A big divide in the Korean and White cultures creating a racist environment. Time off is discouraged- they would rather you sell your Vacation back to the company. Toxic.

    Advice to Management

    Management: Stop thinking and acting like everything is beneath you.

    Pros

    co workers are great

    Cons

    LOW PAY you work along side of the Kia employees who make at least twice the money . Consistently letting you know your job is on line . Temp employees are told at hire 90 til hired on LIES it's been over a year for most of them . The employees are told that you will be off then after you make plans for the Extended time off ( No pay ) then they will let you know at the last minute that yeah you will be off all week but Saturday is Mandatory . They throw in a mandatory day just so you can't collect unemployment .Their hiring process seems to be to hire younger , fresh out of high school people so they will accept LOW pay and be submissive . I really can't believe the unfair treatment.... it is overwhelming that this company can and does treat their employees so unfair .Be prepared for management that is on a power trip. Brace yourself as reprimanding employees is a daily event .

    Advice to Management

    #1 PAY your employees fair wages . #2 TREAT your employees respectfully -we are all humans- learn the meaning of empathy is , Management should guide employees to be the best they can be NOT make them submissive . CEO needs to come by a do a surprise visit and speak with employees and find out really what's happening there on a daily basis

    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!
