Customer Service/Administration, Etobicoke (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 14 December 2017
Great group of colleagues, lots of fun, one of the most fun environments I've worked in. It was great learning about Ontario Tire recycling program, very thrilling with most of interaction being in a B2B setting.
Release Customs Analyst (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 28 June 2016
We are to clear any shipments that cross the border and we are in contact with constant change and we also need to be up to date with the regulations and laws with all the items and products coming into the country. Communication is key with the client and when needed I call, email and fax the clients and stay in touch with them.
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) – Fort Erie, ON – 6 June 2016
I really enjoyed working with this company. There were benefits to working there as you were praised for doing a good job and everyone was friendly, and easy to work with. We all had the same goal - to get the job done and help the clients
Crossing Guard (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 26 May 2016
I worked at livingston for 3 months. Although everything might seem to be ok Unfortunately I saw that no one is happy to be there Worked in an isolated place from the rest of the office which are located on the 3,4 and 5 floors.
Everyday was a strugle due to lack of training and lack of funds to establish that. Going to work afraid is never enjoyable. Poor and unreliable resources were a struggle.
Not even the employees that were in management's level looked like they enjoyed the place
International Freight Forwarder (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 31 December 2015
My time at Livingston was indeed an educational experience. I learnt a massive amount of real world information about the documentation required for the movement internationally of freight with the federal government (Canadian). The freight manager was a very thorough and patient instructor, my co-workers were a varried lot of individual personalties, and the hardest part of the job was learning the ins and outs of their computer system, a bit confusing and cumbersome until I had experience in all aspects of it.
USER SUPPORT SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 December 2015
It is a very relaxed laid back work environment. There is little or no chance of advancement unless you are a family friend or a family member someone who is in upper management. The company offers no motivation to upgrade your skills or advancement.
Accounting/Customer Service/Office Clerk (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 December 2015
i love my Job, bosses and my co workers are the best but our company is shrinking that's why i am looking for another job. i enjoy working here coz i am dealing with different kinds of people everyday, either on the phone or in person since i deal with our walk in importers, so basically when it comes to customer service i have a great customer service, working here from 2008 until now is such a great honor, money is not that great but the people who i work with is worth it.
Release Customs Analyst (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 23 October 2015
worked there on the midnight shift, since the day i completed my field integration field placement there
I can no longer work the midnight shift as I find it to be to hard on me to do any longer, There seems to be a lack of organization within the company, and there doesnt seem to be much support from people that want to work as a team and make the company come together better. At the present moment there is no movement within the company to move up to a better wage or a better shift then the one I am currently working in.
Trade Advisor (Current Employee) – mississauga – 20 October 2015
I have been in inside sales coming up to 5 years, and I have enjoyed the experience. I feel going forward I would either want to go into operations or if sales opportunities persist, i would enjoy being an outside sales rep.
As of right now, future opportunities at Livingston look dim, and they would rather hire people from outside then inside the business.
Release Classification Analyst (Former Employee) – Point Edward, ON – 16 October 2015
Clearance of shipments into Canada, via rail, ocean, air and truck. Overall the work was interesting, but management left something to be desired. Communication to the off shifts was almost non existent. I worked alone a majority of the time, had to learn the ins and outs by myself. As was routinely ignored by superiors. AS most o f the relevant information was givien to the day and afternoon shift.
Release Classification Analyst (Current Employee) – Fort Erie, Ontario – 19 August 2015
Livingston is a high paced work environment, full of fun hard working people. You learn how to process international shipments, deal with Customs to successfully clear shipments in and out of Canada. The managerial staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the company and the latest developments. You have high expectations and must succeed with a heavy workload whilst dealing with impatient and angry drivers. Livingston is a fun and family best company with incredible employees that make going to work a real pleasure.
