LEAD AUDTIOR (Current Employee) –  Carson, CaJuly 17, 2018
a typical day at work for me is when orders are coming in and being picked and then given to me to audit. once audited, I then wrap the pallets, using a shrink wrap machine and take them to the out bound lanes.

PARTS COORDINATOR (Current Employee) –  Wichita, KSJuly 15, 2018
Schenker is a good place to work. Schenker will give you the experience you need to find a higher wage job. Schenker offers you decent medical benefits and 401k. Vacation is a great plus for family.

Poor management with a lot of favoritism
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORJuly 11, 2018
From the lack of effort or skills from the management team every employee does whatever they want and creates a severe lack of respect to one another.

Poor work
Case Picker (Current Employee) –  Edwardsville, ILJuly 9, 2018
They don't care about you getting days off, they have little to no intentions to cross train anyone on any piece of equipment. They want you to work nonstop with little to no down time and fire people off of just about anything. Their turnover rate is unbelievably high and recently their people who have 10+ years of history walked out.
Pros
tons of hours
Cons
1% chance to get trained on any other piece of equipment and they manatory ALL THE TIME

Very busy but warm work environment. Cooperative effort among employees.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Grapevine, TXJuly 9, 2018
Your work day is always busy but satisfying. You have the specific task of taking an order and moving that freight order through specific steps, documenting as you go, to get the freight picked up, moving through the system to the delivery destination.

I learned just how many steps it takes to go from ordering a product to having it delivered, on time and in good condition and what to do when things don't go as intended, and you need to A. explain what happened to the customer and what to do to make them happy, if possible, to B. going the extra mile to accommodate the client, if possible.

I had such a lovely experience at Schenker from the very beginning, when it was still BAX. Everyone was friendly and although we were all busy, there was never a time that I felt that the management was distant or disinterested in any person or department. Nor that there was any time that the most senior management, down to my supervisor's level, was not paying attention to their job and doing the best they could toward making the company successful.

There was a professional workplace atmosphere but a casual dress code that included steel toed boots be kept by your desk because we often had to go out on the freight dock to check on a load of freight. We often had donuts brought in or pizza or luncheons for our department to celebrate birthdays or achieving department goals, so it was a very happy experience.

The hardest part of our job was making sure that the "ball" didn't get dropped anywhere along the line. But it was such a big payoff when you did your job and everything
  more... fell in line.  less
Pros
Friendly atmosphere, always learning new things, fun working right on the air strip before we moved, and seeing the plane being loaded with freight we had arranged.
Cons
30 minute drive to work.

Poor work environment
tester (Current Employee) –  Carlisle, PAJune 29, 2018
DB Schenker (Aerotek, Randstad, and JFC) treat their employees like used toilet paper. You are one in a million, and they know it,. They treat you like kindergartners and expect you to just sit there and take their verbal abuse and harassment. They are even worse to work for if you are not a white male. Good luck if you choose to work there.
Pros
get you in quickly
Cons
horrible place to work

Good Company, German Style
Senior Accountant (Current Employee) –  IlfovJune 25, 2018
Good Company to work in.
Fair and transparent as to company policies and regulations.
In-house training and workshops.
Overall nice environment, good perks in order for the employees to relax (games room, sleeping room, massage chairs etc)
German style less flexible and programmatic development down to the detail make the company sluggish in adopting new ideas and putting them into practice. Too many procedures to respect and guides to be met.
Pros
Nice environment, safe company
Cons
Sluggish, too rigid

material handler (Current Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORJune 21, 2018
Upper management and HR manager make it very hard to focus on your actual job. If these were not there, it would be a better place to work. I have seen way too many good people leave due to these upper management staff.

If you have experience in International Freight, don't waste your time
Coordinator FCL Ocean Export Sr (Contractor) (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJune 17, 2018
Its all about who you know. Had more experience than the whole department. The manager didn't know an AES.

If you are looking for a paycheck in the meantime, cool. If you have experience look for another company. They had to hire more than 35% of external candidate. There will not train you. They will say they will but they will not. Don't fall for it.
Pros
paycheck
Cons
will not add to established knowledge
