The people were very helpful to help you climb the ladder, leaders were good there, employees were awesome. But don’t think that you matter cause I sure i didn’t, You will work a lot of hours and give them your all but when there done with you they will just pitch you out like trash and not really keep the employees that really do take the job serious and really loved the company that they worked for and even tho your there everyday and show em that this is what you want to do with a career, it doesn’t matter.They treated me well but a few mistakes and I was out the door. No write ups, no other ways to punish an employee like most companies would do, it’s automatic dismissal crazy!!
Good pay and benefits
They don’t cut you no slack
Its a good environment to learn different aspects of the industry. Hard work during harvest time, but some what easier off harvest. Learning all job roles, may provide pay increase but also more labor and responsibilities. Sometimes short staffed, may have to travel to other locations to fill in where needed. Advancement to management is not easy where college grads get picked over long term knowledgeable employees. Morale is different from location to location... some locations are cheerful and other locations are depressed attitudes. The atmosphere is not for everybody.
Steady work flow
Overall, this company was great to work for. Management was smart, helpful, and responsive. The benefits are great and the training is a great thing. My only complaint is that the pay was lacking and you spend LOTS of time there during harvest. I worked over 80 hrs per week at one point.
Do you enjoy working at your company?
Every work experience is unique. Tell us about yours. Rate your employer.
The work/life balance is horrible. Very inconsistent with working hours. Want you to work 7 days a week 12-14 hours a day. Quantity over safety. Raises are very few and far between.
My manager is Family friendly and understanding
Work life balance. Inconsistent. Hours.
From day one there was no since of structure or wanting to help. No training was offered, and when I say no training, I mean NO training. From the Division Manager, no the Division President on down there is no structure. They had no handbooks about the company, no-one who could/would show you how to use their archaic software system and my personal lap top was not set up. Apparently they were being forced to expand and this was their resistance to their parent company. They have done the same thing for 40 years and have no desire to expand or update or ever become a competitive factor in the freight brokerage market.. BTW.. I have over 28 years successful years in the trucking industry, as a comparison.
Nice Modern Office
No support at all inside the brokerage division.
There was no work/life balance at CGB, it was all work and no time for your life. I was salaried and expected to work 12+hrs a day 6-7days a week and you were made to feel guilty when you finally ldid eave to go home, so you could get a couple of hours of sleep before having to go back to this h3ll.
None that I saw
The Culture at CGB was amazing but they refused to spend money to fix mechanical breakdowns. Management was handcuffed by corporate and all their safety programs, which were good ideas in theory, but did not mesh well with the operations workplace.
I worked here 6 years the management cares nothing about the employees just production they fire you for anything the management has a buddy group that they Reward and exempt from rules bargemen and river operations don’t get breaks there is always forced overtime and they took away every bonus
I loved the job, until the unexpected came around, it was constantly 12 to 16 hours I was not able to have a life outside this job. We never had a schedule and was always texted the night before what time we were to come in at, they definitely need to figure out the schedule...
Lots of work to be done, always kept busy
no life outside of work, no expected days off
They could put more money in the laborers pockets and less in the safety program. You can only preach safery so much till its going in one ear and out the other. There should be more incentive to operate safely like safety bonuses instead of threatening write ups and termination.
First manager was a pleasure to work for, then he moved on due to dissatisfaction with upper management. New Manager took over and replaced all the long time employees with those of his choosing.
