    I worked at K Line Europe full-time

    Pros

    Great colleagues, very well organised and opportunities to move around if you are not happy in your department

    Cons

    The excessive control of the time. You have to check in and out even to go to the toilet and at the end of every month your time is reviewed by your manager

    I worked at K Line Europe full-time

    Pros

    The people were wonderful and senior management acknowledge those that put in the effort. The company rules ensure that being in the office is a pleasant experience for everyone. There was room for movement within different departments, however, I couldn't advise as to whether that would have any impact on salary. I also cannot advise for anywhere outside of the UK as this was a smaller office.

    Cons

    The occasional difficult customer who will bully their way to getting what they want and unfortunately, you will have to find away to accommodate at the cost of those who don't.

    Advice to Management

    Those at the top of the company need to consider increasing more money to the offices operating nearer the ports as opposed to those in the big cities. Those closest to the ports have a better understanding of how things actually operate and from my experience, they all put a great deal of effort into their performance. Certain departments would have periods where overtime was necessary but there is no incentive for this from those at the very top of the company. Give a little something back to those near the ports please.

    Pros

    Its really too good to work in K Line, because the company work like a family and understand the situation of every employee and never force anyone for any thing. In one line i want to state that if the employer thinks that you are their own then definitely every employee will also think same. this is the reason that yhis company is a leading company in this world.

    Cons

    as per my point of view their is nothing to say about any downside of this company. Because exactly their is not a single downside of this company.

    Advice to Management

    Just one thing to say you guyz are rocking. This is a company in from which other companies can learn how to run a company smoothly and manage people even onboard and even offshore.
