management sucks they play favoritism you only get 40 cents a year rules only apply to certain people they say they give room for growth but then they will hire people outside the company that have no experience in what we do.
Shipping and Receiving Coordinator (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – June 29, 2018
Negativity, condescending and equality are not a good mix. When I first started at CHEP I had my doubts on this job due to the negative personalities of the office management . Truck drivers and employees did not like coming to the window for any reason. Once I came in, I made sure to change this. I have earned the respect of many and will help anyone that needs help. Makes for a better work environment for all. I take pride in my job and myself. In order to get respect, you must earn that respect.
CHEP has potential to be an excellent place to work --- however, the USA leadership team is inconsistent, high turnover and that leads to lack of knowledge depth and constantly changing priorities. Great place to start your career, but not for long

CHEP will teach you how to sort pallets good from bad pallets and you have to clean and recycle plastic and other debris off the floor once done. It's a pallet sorting and recycling company that sorts pallets for customers to purchase to use in their daily work.
Break time any time on job
Less hours when you complete all work within 2 to three hours

Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – May 3, 2018
Worked here for four years. It was definitely a love hate relationship. Pay was good til I capped out. $15 an hour is maximum for forklift drivers, but even that was like pulling teeth. Overall it's a good place to work. Definitely alot of constant changes which can be hard to adjust to.
Forklift Trainer/ Logistics Coordinator (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 26, 2018
I Operated Forklift, Training of Forklift and logistics. Mostly responsible for the repair and inspection of the pallets prior to having them shipped off to our clients. I was assistant safety admin and committee leader for the forklift drivers in the plant. I think this job would be a beneficial place if the management respected other individuals like human beings. I think also if they respected others on a equal level then individuals might work a little bit harder. My example would be that workers with kids should be respected as much as people with no kids. I had a conflict with my schedule and my 7 year old son. they weren't willing to help me and be flexible with my schedule. So unfortunately I had to resign from that company and the position.
Forklift operator material handler (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – April 22, 2018
Not only do they allow people who steal your food to continue working at this place with no repercussions whatsoever if you are a forklift driver they allow the builders to give you death threats on The Daily without handling the situation the management supervisors are a joke it's just a horrible workplace if you are a forklift operator or anybody who isn't a builder they bend over backwards for the builders make sure they're comfortable but if your forklift driver be prepared to be fired when somebody else gives you a death threat
Plant Manager (Former Employee) – Marion, IN – April 3, 2018
Chep was a very challenging job, due to keeping the pallet sorters staffed. When I was short staffed, I was required to throw pallets and do a lot of heavy lifting. It was very difficult to hire new employees due to the strict background checks and drug screening. The pay for Chep was the best I have made, but the physical part of the job was very difficult. I would say it was not a bad place to work if you are good with working at least 50 hours per week, and can do heavy lifting daily.
