No flexibility from Branch Manager
Operations (Former Employee) –  C.H. Robinson Project Logistics Ltd12 January 2018
C.H. Robinson Project Logistics, Mississauga Branch.
Always busy and short staff. Lack of knowledge of the Branch Manager. No flexibility from management no matter how hard you work. No appreciation from branch manager. Old school management. Hire people without experience to pay them less. Employees leave after short period of time because of poor management. No room for moving up. No bonus at all no matter how much you generate revenue during the year.
Pros
Only job security because they are always short staff
Cons
Working long hours without pay, Too much stress, no appreciation or flexibility from management team

This isnt for everyone, but there is alot of job security. It is high stress but over all a decent job to have if you can handle it. Management is okay but harsh at time.

Will not recommend
Capacity Buyer (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC29 May 2017
Will not recommend this job to any one, GM at this office is complete lunatic. Office atmosphere is always tense, anything goes side ways work wise colleges do not mind throwing you under the bus to safe themselves. This is not limited to low level staffs, goes all the way to department managers and GM
Cons
Management and office structure

Not so great..
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC29 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.
Pros
co-workers are nice
Cons
long hours, stressful work but no pay to go along with it

Very good job work balance as I could work from home
Corporate Manager - Special Projects (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB11 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.

Sweatshop
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC13 May 2015
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.
Pros
Free Coffee
Cons
Long Hours, no overtime pay, walk of shame if your late.

Takes care of employees, good place to work
Office Support (Former Employee) –  Toronto5 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.
Pros
Bonuses all the time
Cons
Very repetitive
