Former classifer. (Former Employee), Southfield, MI – August 13, 2014
Pros: a lot of team building events, good training.
Cons: high turn over, unrealistic expectations, pay is very average.
Received excellent training and thought that the 100% review of work completed was a good idea. But it was difficult to meet the expectations for quantity of items completed, and everyone's individual progress is posted on a dry erase board for everyone in the company to see. So when you don't meet expectations, even if there's a good reason for it, – more... you feel very embarrassed -- publicly. Also, supervisors seem to work outrageous overtime without getting paid for it, so there's no incentive to want to advance. Upper managers don't seem to care. – less
Release Agent/Release Classification Analyst (Current Employee), Woodstock, NB – June 29, 2014
Each day is a day that I want to go to work. Very enjoyable as I am able to help our clients get their goods imported into Canada in a timely manner. I love being able to help carriers (drivers) not get held up if at all possible. Will go out of my way often to stay beyond my shift to make sure that this happens. If for any reason, there is a problem – more... then I will let carriers and dispatchers know if at all possible. My co-workers are wonderful to work with. I get along with everyone and will help other teams and branches if I can. All through my career, Management has been very hands on and have been able to voice my concerns about anything that might come up. The most enjoyable part of my job - being client focused and getting their goods to them without any hitches. – less
