Very good job work balance as I could work from home
Corporate Manager - Special Projects (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 December 2015
Typical day at work could consist of making quotations, going through terms and conditions (office) or travel, i.e. conduct route surveys or do load witnessing. Work alone with only limited contact with management through activity reports. Hardest part of job is stress as you are responsible for shipping very valuable oversized or overweight equipment. Most enjoyable is that you meet new people and new work Sites all the time. I worked from home in the last 2 years of the job from my home in Nanaimo BC after moving from Calgary.
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 29 February 2016
Environment was horrible that 2/3 of the staff left a year ago. Staff have been hired to replace the ones that left but a lot of the knowledge, experience and business relationships went along with the departure of the employees. You end up trying to figure things out yourself which gets frustrating, yet this seems to be the way this office runs.
Management seems lost and puts responsibilities on people but they provide little direction. Blame failures on others even little to no guidance is given. Reason for high turnover is due to managements treatment of people and the way they conduct business with the suppliers/trucking companies (unfair and unethical practices)
No real career growth potential in the office due to the structure of the organization.
co-workers are nice
long hours, stressful work but no pay to go along with it

Want a life? Care about people, do not work here then! This place buys low and sells high and you get what you pay for. Cheaper trucking companies equals older equipment and drivers that don't care. Guess who gets the blame, you.
Long Hours, no overtime pay, walk of shame if your late.
Office Support (Former Employee) – Toronto – 5 May 2015
Good place to work, takes care of employees. Wellness room to lay down in if not feeling well, up to date with technology. Only downside is each branch is run independently, but under same structure, so management is in charge of all hires and certain branches have preferential treatment.

CH Robinson Projects Logistics Ltd. is the daughter company of CH Robinson Group, it provides employee good benefit and strong operation network. However, there's no proper channel to upgrade career in this company especially in the branch where I'm currently employed
