Alright I guess
Transportation Dispatcher/Scheduler (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 23, 2017
It was an alright place to work I guess. The only thing I would say is that they don't give raises frequently enough. Got one raise and I was there three years.
Pros
birthday and hire date off
Cons
hovering managers

Not a fun place to work .

Pros

Cons
poor management

Daily challenge to be better than the person next to me. Many facets of the metrics for success were unbalanced but the rewards for meeting them were very self satisfying.

good place to start
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Miramar, FLMay 8, 2017
Good place to start your career as you get a lot of responsibility right off the bat. However, terrible micromanagement and very little room for advancement.

Nonproductive work place
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Hurricane, WVMay 5, 2017
Complete management of accounts, without being localized so you can not build relationships. The same customers you are trying to sell to you are also responsible for their account payments or lack thereof.

Great company Culture,
Operations Representative (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 4, 2017
As large as this company is, it feels like one HUGE family. The culture throughout the building is very comfortable and relaxed, People are friendly and playful, when they are not stressed with work. Depending on the account you are working on, there is much room to grow and advance within the company. You have both your really good management and some that lack leadership and team-building skills. The hardest part of the job is when there are bad weather conditions. People are typically very busy and stressed out. the most enjoyable part of the job is Friday company competitions, usually a 15 minute game among teams/ departments to let off some steam and a chance to win lunch for your entire team, as well as the company outings.

Great workplace but stressful
Global Forwarding Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Middleburg Heights, OHMay 4, 2017
CH Robinson is a great place to work but everyone can be very stressed and no one likes to admit when they are wrong. The job has been great but it is not what I want to do for the rest of my life.

Cool Company
Account Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Auburn Hills, MIApril 30, 2017
Cool and young company to work for, competitive pay, good benefits, sometimes can be over worked/under staffed. Time off/perks are great, office culture is very relaxing and easy going.

Repetitive tasks, cold calling, competitive inside sales.
Senior Capacity Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 29, 2017
Money making machine of a company with sales reps pounding the phones all day in order to bring business in while the other half pounds the phones to move the business that had been brought in from the other sales reps. Commission based per load moved.
Pros
uncapped commission scale and casual dress code
Cons
hard to advance to a higher position

Excellent Company!
Operations Representative (Former Employee) –  Eden Prairie, MNApril 25, 2017
Great company to work for and excellent work environment.

Very team-oriented, training was very smooth, the direction and your position is understood very clearly, if you had a question of upper management, they were very transparent and one of the best work environments I've ever been a part of!

Different Type of Folks
Operation Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Eden Prairie, MNApril 25, 2017
The people that are there tend to act a bit stuck up due to they have been there longer than you. They won't speak to you, the culture and self control is not there and I blame that on management for allowing this to appear okay behavior.
Pros
Fast Pace, not really a dull moment
Cons
Treated pretty badly

Fast paced and stressful
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIApril 24, 2017
CHR is a decent position to start with. It is full of young people, but does not have a lot of room for upward mobility. Each office is very decentralized and it is hard to move up within your own office.

Lots of work for not a lot of return
Carrier Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXApril 20, 2017
It is a company that thrives on having a robotic presence at all times. Do not stir up any pots or ask questions against the grain. Management wants followers. Not leaders.
Pros
Monthly lunches
Cons
False sense of fun environment, everyone is out for themselves
