Logistics Analyst (Former Employee) – Manassas, VA – September 18, 2017
After having been out of work for a little over a year for health reasons, this job was purposely chosen for it's level of job difficulty to the applicant.: (It was something I'd never done before, overnight work and twelve hour shifts!)
After a year and a half, my assignment was completed successfully, and I am now pursuing career opportunities with stability and the opportunity for career advancement.
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) – Mobile, AL – December 11, 2018
Management plays favorites. Operations manager is messy and untrustworthy. Women are not treated fairly. Performance numbers are doctored for favorites. There is no HR on site. Corporate HR is a joke. Pay is low, insurance is expensive. Benefits are mediocre at best. Management gets bonuses but not the employees. LEAN program is a joke. No regular pay raises, lucky if you get one a year, very unlikely. Good employees leave or get fired, bad ones get treated well. Training is non-existent. No one helps or explains how to do things but are quick to throw you under the bus if you make a mistake. No loyalty. This company does not have your back! Management can't be trusted. There is no team atmosphere.
Few holidays, overtime only after 40 actual worked hrs. No schedule fexibilty. No team atmosphere.
Corporate cultured bottom line focused, horrible senior management
Air Export Manager (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – December 15, 2018
At almost 40 years with this company, I’ve seen ALOT of changes and worked in multiple locations. Gradual changes over the last 10 years have turned a once caring, customer oriented, personable fun and proud to work at place. Into a corporate greed focused bottom line only matters. Unrealistic expectations, and splintered upper management directives They don’t understand time and research is needed by the field/floor to make right decisions for customers and the company. Managements Main focus is Revenue and GP, that’s all. Employees don’t matter. Finally this year I received a 2% raise after 9 years of no increase. Most employees are very unhappy and very much under appreciated if at all. Run don’t walk away from DB Schenker
Benefits, wonderful caring fun to work with colleagues within our office
Severely short staffed, over worked, report and KPI driven, does not and will not listen to employees who face the customers daily.
Its just not a good company too work for because of mangment they dont give too care about there temps
Oder Picker/ Prosser (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – January 9, 2019
Db is not a good place to work they over work people an don't care about the temps all they care about are they employer's an if you are though a temp service am get someone hired in they base that person off of you my 90 days had been over an they still fire me becauae I had got a person a job there an I did get raised every quarter so i2 did not see the point of them firing me because I was a good worker an they talk about all of they employer's its just bad an I really did like working there the pay is real good but they don't go about situation like they should its all about they in employers say too them too get a other person out the door an they employer's dont like too see temps move up in there an the supervisor did not do such a good job
Best job I’ve had in the entire Martinsburg, Wv area. Production is the focus in any manufacturing environment and that can create stress for both workers and management if the company doesn’t have the required workforce to keep up, this company doesn’t seem to have a greed issue and makes sure we are well prepared for our tasks. If there was one thing I could change before it starts to become normal thing at the Martinsburg location is: No mandatory overtime, that will cause you to lose workers very quickly and that is bad for the company because you will run out of quality workers eventually and then be stuck with temp agencies.
Good pay, good benefits, good upward mobility
Short breaks, mandating overtime, P&g employees make you feel as if you are the bottom of the barrel compared to them, point system without compromising
an ok job, but I think it could have paid more for the position
Sanitation Technician (Former Employee) – Pryor Creek, OK – January 2, 2019
Overall experience was good. The employees were, with a few exceptions, good to work with. Management was good under the previous manager. Not so much with the current warehouse production manager. The main thing I would recommend is a pay raise for cost of living, and more consistency on the regular evaluation and performance reviews of all employees.
DB Schenker is an employer who does not value the importance of the human resources at the desk level.
Import Manager (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 24, 2018
Go in read e-mail Follow my own judgement even if it gets your hand slapped Many upper management in daily day to day business trying to over manage the team. Moral was very low and there was no structure, trying to implement structure was tough. Boasting the moral of my team after them not having raises since they started, some for a period of 8 years. Then when they did get raises they were very small. Working on the new project and learning how to implement a new change.
My team, they worked hard and did the best they could
CASE PICKER (Current Employee) – Edwardsville, IL – January 9, 2019
IF YOU HAVE A FAMILY AND LOVE THEM DO NOT WORK HERE as a CASE PICKER. As a case picker the pay is not good when you take into account that you are mainly working Mandatory over time at this place which consist of 12 hour shifts and 6 days on with 1 day off. This company is to busy and if you ask me they do not care for there employees well being. We rarely get to see the regular schedule the company already has planned out for us.
Good company for advancement but poor culture and inconsistent vision/purpose from executive management
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Inland Empire, CA – June 9, 2018
DB Schenker is a good company in regards to advancement opportunities primarily because they have a strong client base and large sites/accounts. There is opportunity to move up within the ranks for hard workers who are dedicated and willing to put in the long hours. Not the best working culture and little support from management in regards to work/life balance. Not very many company "perks" or benefits for employees as there is little focus on employee engagement or culture. High turn over in upper and executive management which leads to inconsistent vision/purpose long-term.
Logistics and transporting, decent place to work, benefits are good, (depending on posion) good pay. A variaty of positions available.
Silicon runner, warehouse person, material handler (Former Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – May 6, 2018
I worked for 9 month it was a good run, started optimisticly. Overtime realized the work demand and hours weren't well met with the pay grade. Eventually i was let go for attendance issues. 8 tardes with in 9 months. Compact shifts are available 12hr shifts 3 to 4 times per week. 3 to 4 days off! Paid weekly. Some nice and attractive people.one hour lunch breaks. SAFETY! Is a way of life in SCHENKER. Raises are based on a variety factors, work performance being one of them. Overall it's a decent place.
Benefits, hours, beautiful people, good cooks
Strict rules you must comply with. Some people, long hours, long periods of standing and walking wirh steel toe boots.
Transportation Operations Manager (past) (Former Employee) – Shippensburg, PA – October 22, 2018
My advancement over the years was steady and I received and exceeded where I chose to put in the work necessary, it is not just given. I was intent on retiring within the company and loyal to the end. Unfortunately an upper management reorganization that was not to effect anyone did and my position was eliminated. But that is just business today. I would definitely return and continue where I left at 16 years if possible in a similar role.
advancement opportunity, people, overall culture
Typical EE's that are never happy, sudden decision by new managment and the effect
Safety Manager (Former Employee) – Edwardsville, IL and Saint Peters, MO – May 16, 2018
Good team of Schenker people in the mid-management level though understaffed from the onset combined with an excessively demanding customer with ever-changing priorities, made it extremely difficult to meet expectations. Worked for 3 different General Managers in 15 months and had oversight responsibilities spanning up to 7 different departments at any given time.
good people, good pay and benefits, clean facilities
high stress, understaffed Operations and Support management
