Loved the work flow and environment, Management was great and on point. The hardest part of the job, was the workflow but other than that it was by far one of the best work experience I ever had. Close knot team, incredible loyalty and focus on teamwork and personal growth.
Incredible perks, work environment and company offers great benefit
The office was really nicely set up where all people were centralized in one big room. This made the job more enjoyable as we were able to talk to each other over coffee or other snacks. I started each day with setting appointments and tracking loads using our computer system. After this initial period of the day had passed, my job duties were to handle in bound calls, build loads, give rates and set more appointments. In performing the above mentioned tasks, I was able to speak with customers and carriers to better understand their needs so a more cost effective solution could be discussed. Developed so many long lasting relationships. Many still continue to this day!

As a customer account manager, the day flies by. You take care of many customers and their transportation needs. Its your responsibility to help them grow by aligning the correct methods of transport to their specific shipments. No two days are the same. Management could be more helpful as an overused phrase in the office is that our job is "like drinking out of a fire hydrant." Coworkers tend to unify to help one another because of this mentally. Once it clicks, you impress yourself daily at what you can help achieve.
Ocean Import Coordinator (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 20, 2017
First week in CH Robinson at Atlanta Branch demoted my manager to Senior Ocean Import. Very stressful place to work, lack of communication and skills. Individual comes and goes when and please. Very unfriendly place to work at and lack of management presence allowed then to stuff work down peoples throats without giving them any indication that they were increasing your workload but not going to compensate you for this.
Operations Representative (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 17, 2017
CH Robinson recently lost the top spot as number 1 3pl and the reason being is unhappy employees. Many employees are unhappy with pay and will gladly leave to do the same work for another company. This is the sort of company where knowing someone will help you get raises and promotions not work ethic. If an employee complains about a team member's lack of work ethic nothing will be done about it. Management will sweep it under the rug and feel the issue will resolve itself. This creates a tense work environment and many employees leave because of subpar management. With pay they are very very cheap and the offerings are well below market salaries. Depending on the city you live in you'll be scraping by paycheck to paycheck. Any talks of raises will be answered with a firm no. Management is very desensitized to the need of financial stability of everyday people. The Job culture is very much "boys club"

I thoroughly enjoyed my years with C.H.Robinson. Salaries and bonuses were always appropriate. Our office was clean, bright and cheerful with music playing over PA system. Employee appreciation was considered important.

CHR hires most people right out of college. It is a great place to learn the 3PL business. If you do well career opportunities are available. Moving to a smaller company is also a great career move after a few years.
Operations Representative (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – August 2, 2017
Great place with great people. Flexible schedule. The work was easy to learn and teammates were available to help with any gaps. I was only part time, but would recommend full time to someone eager to get into Logistics.
Carrier Representative (Former Employee) – Vancouver, WA – August 2, 2017
Competitive workplace. Hours are pretty straight forward for when you come into work and leave. Show up, hit the phones, call it a day. Most of the managers push you to improve. Hardest part of the job was dealing with angry clients every day. Most enjoyable part of the job was the success, and the people in the office. Most of the employees were laid back and fun to be around.
Operations Account Coordinator (Current Employee) – Eden Prairie, MN – August 1, 2017
Working at C.H. Robinson can be fun, inviting and relaxed but we definitely have a lot that is on our plates to manage on a daily bases. I began my career as an appointment scheduler which quickly lead to taking on high value loads. Roughly 5 months later, I joined the load building team which consisted of building loads manually into the database for several different customers. approximetly 6 months later I was promoted to an operations representative working with one customer but additionally helped on other accounts. Currently, I work as an Account Coordinator, I lead a team of four people on the overall operations processes for the customer with a specific large customer and handle many day to day tasks which include; tracking & tracing, situational problem solving, conflict resolution, multi-tasking, attention to detail, spreadsheet analysis and updating, and project development. Hardest part of my job is not having enough time in the day to continue taking on more tasks to improve other aspects of the business. The most enjoyable part of the business is customer satisfaction, our team of 9 has earned 3 major awards as a group from the customer. The atmosphere can vary, we have sales teams that can be loud at times when we have wins, it tends to get a little rowdy at times but manageable.
Account Coordinator (Current Employee) – Eden Prairie, MN – July 31, 2017
CHR is a fun place to work and has great workplace culture. They are always doing something fun to up the moral. The best place about the job were the people. The worst thing was the management. Not all managers were there to help build and advance your career, but instead to keep you in the same place working extra hard without the incentives.
CH Robinson was a very difficult and stressful place to work. The office I was at in Toledo, OH had several individuals that could do whatever they pleased. The lack of consistency in this office, led me to not want to work there. The lack of management presence allowed then to stuff work down peoples throats without giving them any indication that they were increasing your workload but not going to compensate you for this.
