CSR Lead / Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) – Stockbridge, GA – September 10, 2018
The wonderful about working in the logistics industry is that every day is different. While you are trying to achieve the same goals, how that is accomplished changes. KN is always striving to be the top producer and stay ahead of the game by using new and proven techniques within the industry to best manage their business. Whether you work at one location for your career or multiple locations, it is like a giant work family. You always have someone to lean on and help you out when needed and vice versa. If you're a diva or 'self creditor' then this team is not for you. We all work together to achieve together and give credit where it is due. Management wants to be respected and learned from, not feared. I have a lot of respect for the skills and techniques I learned while at KN and will use them for the rest of my life though always looking for ways to improve.
Same goal but different methods to achieve, work family, appreciative employee lunches, GREAT benefits, competitive pay
Constant changing rules based on customer, difficult to find proper suited workers sometimes due to temp staffing, long hours
I enjoyed working here, I met many people that felt like family. It was very structured, it had to be since it was pharmaceutical. This place allowed me to work my way up to a good position. KN also sent me on two business trips which I hold value to my personal growth.
Benefits and opportunities are easily available however man power was short(in my experience) which resulted in increasing hours. Sometimes up to 75 hours a week. Along with this I had several issues with a specific member of management.
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – McDonough, GA – August 23, 2018
One of the worst places I’ve ever worked. Extremely brutal weather conditions. Summer time, no AC. Winter time, no heat except in the break room. Management dose not care about their employees. You will work like a dog until you can’t take it anymore.
SALES (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 21, 2018
Initially, I really liked working at KN. After a while, it was very clear that there was no real room for growth, unless you were a German or white man (it is what it is). The management here is unlike any I've ever experienced. Upper / higher level management is a laughable joke. Lower level management is OK. The only thing I'm grateful for was the ability to learn the freight forwarding industry.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – August 16, 2018
Some days were busier than others and that made the work more interesting. I learned how to operate scanning devices and machines in order to complete transactions. The management were very cool and made the job go by smoother and funner. The hardest thing about the job was making sure to place the inventory in the right spot without a properly working scanner. The people that worked alongside you made the job more enjoyable.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Southaven, MS – August 11, 2018

OPERATIONS MANAGER (Current Employee) – Redlands, CA – July 30, 2018
I would recommend KN as a great place to work. I have seen a lot of growth from within for those that are seeking development. There are many opportunities in many different fields that can spark various interests.
Order Picker and Packing (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 25, 2018
I had no issues with anyone there. I only left because a foot injury made it very difficult to work in a warehouse setting. There were never any major issues. Production rates were always met. For being such a new building operations seemed to run smoothly.
Over the company is good. However the managment team is very poor and unprofessional. Day to day task are always unknown and daily procedures and processes that are required are unwritten. It's a day to day challenge between the logistics team and the company so over all it just very poor communication within a start up company. There is also a break down between the managment team and the hourly personnel team. The trust, faith and respect is gone between the two...
