    I have been working at Kühne + Nagel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits . Accounts are always busy. Pay is a little above the bottom rate for entry level material handler.

    Cons

    Worked too much with very little notice. You never know if it’s a 8, 10 or 12 hour day. You are told to work over time right as you are trying to go home for the day. Management doesn’t know what to do a lot! Employees train their own supervisors. We are always short handed. It’s hard to keep new employees here but if you are a team player and are willing to go all over in every account doing whatever, it’s a good place to be.

    Advice to Management

    Try to not let your accounts get away with crazy demands! We are human and have lives beyond jumping through hoops to keep customers overjoyed. Be reasonable! Maybe then people will stay and work.
