Account Manager (Current Employee), Eden Prairie, MNJuly 22, 2015
Although it can be mundane at times, it is very fast-paced and hectic at others. If you do not handle stress well, this is not the environment for you. Co-workers are all easy to get along with. Very male-dominant.

Accounting/Customer Service (Former Employee), Jackson, TNJuly 12, 2015
Pros: A fast paced environment which requires problem solving, benefits and pay are competitive, management is great, fun environment
Cons: When I moved to Nashville to attend law school, only a part-time position without benefits was available. I needed more pay and benefits.
C.H. Robinson is a great place to work. It is a fast paced environment which requires problem solving. Each customer has specific accounting procedures, and each account is paid differently. I made sure each customer was properly billed, and that those bills were paid and accounted for.

CH Robinson is a great place to learn and grow from if you are just getting into the industry. Not a place to be long term unless you move up within the company.

Freight Broker (Former Employee), Freight BrokerJune 8, 2015
Pros: Base + Commission, fun work environment, excellent management.
Cons: Stress of job duties
Track & trace shipments in transit, prospect new business, handle any disputes that occur with each shipment in transit, negotiated shipping rates with carriers. I learned some various sales tactics, pricing – more... lanes all across the country & knowing seasonality. The people i worked with were helpful & fun. The hardest part of the job was knowing your biggest customer can leave you any second, thus having to prospect new business. – less

Customer Account Manager (Current Employee), Dallas, TXJune 4, 2015
Pros: Lots of experience, great people to work with, not much supervision
Cons: Work/life balance, opportunity for advancement, no clear message or vision, low-cost transportation provider
Great company if you want lots of Logistics experience right off the bat. Pretty much a baptism by fire your first day on the job but you'll earn your chops fast.

Dispatcher (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKMay 23, 2015
Pros: schedules are flexible
Cons: too much down time. Boring.
It is a low stress position. In this position, work stays at work. There is minimal micro-managing. A typical work day consist of taking about 90 phone calls from truck drivers explaining to them their daily load duties. It is a very simplistic position, perfect for a college student.

Ocean Import Customs Brokerage & Logistics (Former Employee), Denver, COMay 6, 2015
Pros: Helpful colleagues.
Cons: The long commute to the office.
My day started early to gather information for customers and to review cargo logistics updates. I learned to better coordinate customs clearance and cargo delivery transit times. Management and coworkers – more... were always ready top assist at all times. The most difficult part of my job was having to rely on other variables that I have no control of such as labor disputes at the west coast ports. The most enjoyable was being able to deliver cargo on time for customers. – less

LTL Operations Rep (Former Employee), Tampa, FLApril 22, 2015
Pros: Bagels
Cons: Toxic work environment.
C.H. Robinson had a few issues. Namely with employee morale. The primary issue was that they had tenured employees (20+ years) who were extremely disrespectful to basically the entire staff aside from – more... the General Manager and it created a lot of friction and heartache amongst the office.

They were also understaffed so the operations team in particular was stretched extremely thin and it was extremely difficult to get any support if you needed help, then if something went wrong (often due to having too much work on your plate at one time) you got the full brunt of the blame for it.

Aside from that, sometimes they brought expensive bagels in. That was cool. – less
