    I worked at Maersk Line (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    the people i worked with were fantastic. many of my friends today are from my days at maersk. they are a very proud company with a rich history though they've changed alot over the past 10 years.

    Cons

    job opportunities did not come about frequently and the salaries offered were not generally the best but i've heard that has changed

    Advice to Management

    don't forget your past and the teachings of the founder. Constant Care and the true values are what will continue to make and keep maersk the best ocean carrier in the world.

    I worked at Maersk Line full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with and my supervisors where phenomenal. I couldn't have asked for coworkers or supervisors for my first job out of college. The company does a lot for their employees like potlucks, birthday celebrations, pizza parties, and an annual Christmas party. There's room for growth and movement within departments. If "Customer Service Rep" is on your resume, other future employers think "wow you did chromed service, you can do anything" (speaking from experience).

    Cons

    The job itself is extremely difficult. When I started, I joined the import group and took anywhere from 60-90 phone calls all day. Some calls are easy, but some people will yell at you for 10 minutes. It was a 9 hour day, 1 hour unpaid lunch, and two 15 minute breaks (in the AM and then PM). I couldn't stand being yelled at all day or listening to someone cry because they might lose their job if they don't have a container delivered. It's an extremely tough job.

    Advice to Management

    I don't much advice to give to management because a huge reason I stayed for a year was because of management. It's hard to find a workplace with great and helpful supervisors, but the charlotte office managers were great. Keep doing what you're doing and help your employees as much as possible. Especially the young ones.
