Recently bought out by DSV but did enjoy it while I was there mostly because of the staff and not management
International Freight Forwarding Agent (Former Employee) – Elk Grove Village, IL – May 19, 2016
Great people but poor management and training. As it was bought out and no longer exists so to speak there is not much to consider anymore but while I was there the co-workers were great and the most enjoyable part was the closeness and respect received from them. The hardest part was getting info internally on customers and how to work their accounts as well as billing them.

Supply Chain Solutions Project Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 18, 2016
Strong company with great people going through tremendous change due to the buyout with DSV. What I saw over the last several weeks was both organization working very hard to develop and communicate solid and well thought out business processes to ensure streamlining and the highest quality in any area of the business. Good luck to UTi/DSV now the #4 3PL in the world.
Intercompany Accountant (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – May 17, 2016
I enjoyed working at UTi Worldwide as an intercompany accountant. I gained skills working in the largest company I have thus far been employed. They had great benefits for the employees, the employees where happy, and they provided lunch on Fridays. I enjoyed being introduced to pivot tables.
Free lunch on Fridays, and cookies on Wednesdays.
Only a temporary position since I was moving out of town.
Regional Sales Director, South Region (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – March 30, 2016
UTi provided the opportunity to recruit, hire, develop and lead a very successful sales team. The individuals I worked with accepted the process that was taught, implemented it in to their daily work behaviors and enjoyed the success that comes from focused, consistent effort.
We enjoyed a great environment where individuals were encouraged to be successful, encouraged to think outside of the standard thinking and to use those proven practices (focus & consistency) to drive forward their individual success. Team members understood they had complete freedom and total support in their efforts to meet the objectives established.
Strong, professional, sales team.
IT challenges, created challenges beyond the daily operation.

Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Moberly, MO 65270 – March 25, 2016
The job itself is quite simple, if not monotonous. If you pick orders you are required to meet a minimum "rate" which varies based on the part of the warehouse you are currently assigned. However, rate is inconsistent and is either too easy or too difficult to regularly meet depending on your area. There are no incentives or rewards for exceeding rate other than having your name posted for others to see. I started on the weekend shift and enjoyed it for the most part because of having 3 days off per week, but with less than a months notice our shift was informed that we had to choose another shift because the weekend was getting shut down. We all lost our shift pay differential and were forced to move to another shift and work 5 days a week instead of 4. Management spends most of their time chatting in their air conditioned offices and in meetings while the leads pick up most of their responsibilities. Co-workers are mostly good people who dislike their jobs, and thus are often in bad moods, but most do their best to joke and make friends to make the best of the poor work environment. I would only recommend working here as an alternative to fast food or to get some general warehouse experience.
warehouse experience may help get hired at better companies, paid breaks
Low pay compared to other warehouses, clueless management, negative atmosphere
Forklift Driver (Current Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – March 24, 2016
i worked in the kitchen as the cook and worked the side order station as well. Helped with customer service taking food orders and delivering orders. Getting to work with new people and learning new things was most enjoyable thing about my job.
This has been a great learning experience. Management was not up to task . The colleagues i found were very helpful in making me feel welcome. Unfortunate company was taken over . Hopefully transition will be smooth.
