data entry (Former Employee) – Windsor, ont – 18 December 2012
didn't enjoy working there at all, the people are all back stabbing b#@. the manager has favourites, just couldn't stand going in there anymore, it was that bad, that is the first job I had were I hated to go to work, so I stuck it out until I found someing else and left. was hired for one shift an then was given another one after I finished my 2 week training, manager doesn't care one bit.
A great organization with a large network and multi services
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 23 August 2012
During my day I am active meeting with existing customers and new prospects. I developed skills in several transportation modes such as Ocean which I did not have prior experience. Management was overall good but was not very supportive My co workers were generally very good to work with. The hardest part of the job was getting operational support in a timely fashion
The most enjoyable part was signing new companies and growing my region .
good place to learn about the industry if you are just starting out. there are some good colleagues in the company who are willing to teach you and make sure you know what you are doing.
management is non existent, until you do something wrong. was never told if i'm doing a good or bad job. would prefer to know the team objectives and goals. asked around with other senior staff, but they didn't know as well.
work load can pile up quickly and you are expected to work overtime to finish it. many times i work till 7pm. i didn't enjoy working late all the time.
free coffee, nice brand name, lots of work so you learnt quickly
long hours, non communication from management, pay & benefits can be better
Good company to work for with good people but it is time for me to tackle a new challenge with Panalpina and continue working in the same field
Regional Financial Controller - Eastern Canada (Current Employee) – Montreal – 5 July 2012
DBSchenker is a great company to work for. 2011 was really challenging due to restructuring and too many changes in personnel. Overall DB is a healthy company but I need to close this chapter and open a new one. With 25 years of experience in the freight business I am sure I can be in a good position to provide added value to Panalpina. What I enjoy the most is working with people , I am a team player and work with corresponding operations managers on a regular basis in order to continously improve our productivity and keep our overhead ( operating and personnel ) cost to a respectable level; Monthly analysis of financial results by product and explain the +,(-) deviations to budget and to same period prior year. Enjoy working on the forecast and the budget by being aggressive enough to push our ops managers and sales reps to continue performing at a high level with expected growth year over year.
communication and team work
too many changes with no real and constructive plan
