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

    Pros

    This was a great job just out of college and feel that the work structure and life balance was amazing. The level of interaction you get with different levels of the organization is very welcoming when compared to other worksites. Overall this a great starting position as a job right outside of college.

    Cons

    Fast paced working environment and there is a learning curve to the intricacies within the logistics world of transportation.

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

    Pros

    Owned by Mitsui of Japan, a financially strong/conservative international company. Transfreight had offices in USA, Canada, and Mexico. Learned a lot about kaizen (continuous improvement). Most people have a sense of humor.

    Cons

    Was often slow on decision-making and had a culture of micromanagement at one time (maybe both of these have changed with new management).

    Advice to Management

    Accelerate calculated risk-taking and growth (maybe they have by now).

    Pros

    Keeps you busy, fast paced. chance for advancement after one year. not much else to say as a pro. other than to say its a job.

    Cons

    Old equipment the shunt truck I'm using is 8 years old and poorly maintained. Little to no training on the job your assigned. Pay is way below what it should be, if there is a mistake in your pay it takes a long time to get it fixed. If one of the shunt drivers has a day off, management waits until the last min to try to get someone to fill in, leaving the other shunt driver to do the extra work.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to drivers suggestions better,we're the ones out there doing the job and things look a lot different behind the wheel of the trucks than behind a desk.
