Accounts Payable Operator (Former Employee) – West New York, NJ – November 16, 2017
I lived in New Jersey when I got married 30 years ago. Once I had a child I decided to find work locally while my husband commuted. I was with Alliance Shipper for many years and have nothing but good things to say. It was a small office they were a shipping company the job was data entry. Simple pace and great people to work with. My husband and I relocated to New York City which is the reasoning for my departure.
I worked alone in Reception area as a fast pace job doing data entry, customer service, filing, coordinated conference appointments, answer 15 lines, work under stress and manage very calmly, filing, and screening calls.
Typical day at Alliance Shippers, required tracking many shipments and contacting railroad personal regarding any problems or issues. Hardest part of the job was getting quick resolutions from railroad dispatchers regarding problematic shipments.
Knowledgeable support staff, good training
Compensation, poor benefits package, and stressful environment
office assistant (Former Employee) – Salinas, CA – August 12, 2017
Poor management, Very sloppy organization. Very disrespectful management and staff. Staff is unprofessional to each other and to drays. Management degrades and be-littles you. Raise freeze for years and work is piled on you with no reward!
raise freeze, poor managment, Huge lack of communication.
Low pay, close to zero chance for advancement, management is imcompentent
Account Manager (Current Employee) – Kansas – February 28, 2017
Management has no issue screaming and cussing at employees despite the level of error. They say they offer raises every year but have not followed through on their word. Management is not interested in hearing employee feedback, they only their way. Once you are hired into a position that will be as far as you will go. Overall, not a company that values their employees.
Pay, managemennt, workload, hours, rigid and outdated policies
This is a company that views it's employees as cogs and not individuals. It does not matter what your work experience entails, they will pay you the absolute minimum and give you almost zero vacation time. Your superiors will not give you an ounce of respect but will expect you to bend over backwards for them, whether that means staying late with no promised overtime, or taking the blame for their mistakes. Overall, not a great place to give your years.
No respect, no room for advancement, no room for salary advancements, horrible management practices
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) – Salinas, CA – October 7, 2015
Processed over 100 plus deliveries for the different distributors and companies I was assigned to daily. I learned a lot about the accounting side of shipping businesses, and the type of paper work and computer programs that are used to process shipping deliveries and payments. Management was professional, and very understanding. The hardest part of the job was communicating with the different companies regarding needed paperwork in order to release shipments. Sometimes management needed to step in to help receive what was needed.
Flexible hours, free lunch on occasion
Working with companies with no effort or communication
ASSISTANT TO VP OF SALES, TELEMARKETER (Former Employee) – Keasbey, NJ – July 26, 2012
A typical day at work was always hectic. Although I have a lot of recommendation emails from my boss and the sales force (all on the road), some inter-office management never had a positive thing to say. My co-workers were great people and very hard working. We would always go the extra mile for our customers to help with their concerns and to rectify problems or complaints, forming great relationships with the them, and following up to see that that their shipments were delivered without any problems.
some real, great, hardworking people. great over-the-road boss.
not feeling valued by some inter-office management.
