It’s a real relaxed job
Order Picker (Current Employee) –  Fairburn, GASeptember 26, 2018
They are a real good and friendly company it’s just that you do the same thing everyday without getting a chance to learn anything new or different because you are stuck doing the same thing everyday for 12 hours a day

APL has some good people but not the greatest pay and benefits. You also do not have much room to grow and improve unless moving around in companies.n

APL has adapted over the decades to maintain good Brand name
Marine Engineer (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAAugust 22, 2018
This company is a leader and provides example of how the industry should operate. It is my understanding that it is the only company outsiders view the industry through.
Pros
You have great working conditions
Cons
Too many fire drills per month per ship (personal observation)

US Export Lead Analyst (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZAugust 16, 2018
APL provides a stable work place, Friendly management, they do not micro manage their employees, Leave you alone to manage your workload, as long as you get your work done they do not bother too much

Okay work but problems keeping track of time
Forklift Driver (Former Employee) –  Pleasant Prairie, WIAugust 16, 2018
I like working at APL. The work was easy but the pay was below average the days were long and my biggest problem with a p l was their system never property saved your time. So you would work 40 so 50 hours a week but on every paycheck you would have to fight for those hours.
Pros
Easy work
Cons
Lack of organization and lack of time management

Decent paying job depending on location in warehouse
Front office CSR (Current Employee) –  Shepherdsville, KYAugust 7, 2018
I did 3 different positions within the 1 year and 5 months I was employed there. I would have stayed, however, it conflicted with my school schedule ad became stressful. Otherwise, there are good people there that will help you out when you need it.

Hurdles with Mangement
ACCOUNT MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZAugust 2, 2018
This place is great if you've you had 0 exposure to the industry. But take it and run. Management is way to involved with your accounts to the point of being unhelpful. 1/2 of them are incredibly rude, all the way up to the director. Comp package isn't competitive with the market. Great colleges. Horrible management team.
Pros
Paycheck
Cons

Productive and nice place to work
CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) –  Hodgkins, ILJuly 27, 2018
Great job as long as you mind your business. A typical work day at Apl is usually fun and busy. However, management can tend to overly micromanage the warehouse workers, but I guess to keep them on their toes.
Pros
Flexibility. You can usually get overtime and change your shift if need be.
Cons
Healthcare benefits and cost

It’s okay..
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Minooka, ILJuly 10, 2018
It’s a decent place to work as a temporary job and that’s it. They constantly change your working hours daily and have you work over time every day because they don’t have enough people in the work place. Also, they will tell you last minute that Saturday is mandatory and don’t care if you have stuff planned and don’t give you a heads up they literally tell you at the very last minute. I like working over time but they make it mandatory for a lot of people who don’t want it. And some of the line leaders are very ignorant. But overall it’s a pretty decent place to work besides that.
Pros
Free lunch, decent breaks, okay pay, vending machines, areas to put your things
Cons
Some of the leads are rude

Job Security comes with a lack of training
Warehouse Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Lithia Springs, GAJuly 9, 2018
The APL contract I worked on was a thrown to the wolves type of environment. Several people in there with a bunch of knowledge, but dont have the time to train people. Structure is terrible and needs to be reevaluated. Work load is massive and unmanageable.
Pros
Hourly associates can make a lot of money, Hourly associates get paid double time for the 7th work day
Cons
Hourly associates have to work 6 days a week

Mediocre
Quality Control (Current Employee) –  Shepherdsville, KYJune 29, 2018
It has been a great environment to learn new trades. However, they do not hire from within the company. A position you have had your eye on and training for will be filled by a temporary company. The attendance policy is not applied to the newly hired temps and their start pay is close to what the temps are being paid.
Pros
lots of OT
Cons
They do not hire for new positions from within

Run from building 1000!!!
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJune 15, 2018
The job itself is not difficult, however the company has one "supervisor" that makes it an extremely stressful environment. He torments everyone that he can in multiple buildings and his supervisors do absolutely nothing about it. If a mistake is made he quickly blames it on someone else, (mainly the guys on the floor) even if he has given direct orders to do it. He is verbally abusive to his subordinates on a regular basis (unless he's in a good mood) and the only thing you can do is deal with it or leave. The morale is very low and the turnover rate is extremely high is the building that he is over.
