    I worked at Weiss-Röhlig as an intern

    Pros

    Free bagels on friday a definite. Random catered breakfast / lunch. Free pizza + cake on birthdays. They take you out for cook a lot. Theres a deli down in the basement of company for convenience.

    Cons

    Pay is not enough for work done. Comparative to other jobs in the field, somewhat under-paid. The job description also doesn't tell you of other duties that fall as your responsibility from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    Give the interns better pay as incentive to keep up consistent hard work and dedication. Allowing them to work off work office would also be crucial for students with difficult schedules.

    I worked at Weiss-Röhlig full-time

    Pros

    It is an International company

    Cons

    The operational staff at the branch that I worked at were expected to sometimes work 12+ hours a day, no assistance from middle management to assist with their work load. BM will leave at 5pm every day but operations are expected to come in at 7am and sometimes leave at 8pm. Branch was always short staffed but it affects branch managers year end bonus if there are too many salaried employees.

    Advice to Management

    Employee more operational staff so that employees don’t become overloaded and sick as a result.

    I worked at Weiss-Röhlig as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Birthday celebrations, free lunches from time to time, free breakfast on Fridays, friendly co workers.

    Cons

    Over worked and long hours; with the lack of extra help. Certain managers can never be found for extra help, leaving only 1 manager who is also overworked. Would have appreciated if there was more help or if other management was in the office to help manage the branch rather than always complaining and doing nothing about it and yelling at workers for not doing their job. Too many people call off leaving more work for other people.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more qualified people and pay them up to market - stop hiring low pay interns. Ensure all management helps out not just one person. Ensure everyone is in the office who is branch/operations related.

    I worked at Weiss-Röhlig as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Online training for EDI, Incoterms, CTPAT, etc.

    Cons

    Very low pay, long hours, no health insurance. Petty strict micro managers that will squeeze every minute out of you. They make you keep a time schedule of everything you do and give you a ridiculous demand of audits in a very short time span. HIGH HIGH HIGH pressure. Upward mobility is at snail speed, very hard to grow past operation level.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on ethics and work/life quality balance. High demand jobs should be compensated for that.

    I have been working at Weiss-Röhlig full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay, vacation time and insurance are the only good benefits this company has to offer. This was a great company to work for when I first started but has taken a turn since then.

    Cons

    The only people who get promotions are foreigners on visas or former DSV employees, open positions are rarely posted internally but often can be found on job boards. Due to recent changes in management, several jobs ( mostly management) have been created for their friends. They also lie on visa applications to prove that the job can't be done by an American when in fact it can be. There is no job within the organization that cannot be done by an American. Also, many visa holders have left early because they were dissatisfied with the way they were treated. State of the union calls were held monthly and then changed to quarterly but still a waste of time. It was said that any and all questions would be addressed. Several employees addressed concerns but they were never addressed. As an employee, you are not allowed to be in a relationship with a direct reporting manager. This happens often in the organization and in fact some have been given promotions and still reporting to their "secret" significant other.

    Advice to Management

    I have been with Weiss Rohlig for over 4 years and have seen all the changes and they are not good changes. The president is building his empire and not treating the non-management workers with much respect or value. Open your eyes and see that most of the long time employees are leaving because of this.
