If you want to work for a company that sucks the life out of you...
Once upon a time this was a great company, then they IPO'ed and it was all down hill from there. They started buying up smaller companies without adding additional staff, worked the finance department into the ground, worked the border staff into stress leave and worked the office staff into horrible morale.

The management (for the most part) do not care about you. This is because they have goals to reach to ensure they receive their Management Incentive (their bonus) while the peons earn an Employee Incentive (about $300).


It's not a great place to work. It's rigid and doesn't offer much in the way of bonuses, advancement or even fun.

Look elsewhere
I’ve been with Livingston for 6 years and have not received a raise. As the top performer on my team of 5 members None of us received any annual salary bonuses or Increases over 6 years. The management is just an absolute disgrace to Canada by letting American companies treat Canadians this way especially when they refuse to let a person in a wheelchair work from home when their job duties can be done 100 percent virtually

Horrible managers and culture!
Stay away!, their locations are the worst area to work at. Managers are all connected and are very miserable and unprofessional!. Culture is very poor with no career advancement. The directors really don't care about their employees, and their is a lack of diversity in the leadership pool. NO AUDIT and NO structure in any department. Highest turnaround, it's not what you know but who you know.

Management style very rigid especially as it relates to time and work environment similar to a school setting. No room for growth and lots of micro managing.

Good place to work
relaxed environment, great place to start of as an entry level grad or student.

Many things to learn and a great place to gain experience especially if you are in the logistics, customs, or operations field!

Poor place to work
Trying to do your job every day with upper management underminding everything that you do is not healthy.
Even if you have more knowledge than them and can help things go smoother they refuse to listen to you.

This is the worst mistake that I ever made

I would have been better off sweeping a floor at a fast food restaurant. Less stress.

Need improvement
Training very short, too many demands for low pay. Management needs more improvement in assisting the trainees to understand the job more. But other than this it's okay.

The Worst
Imagine working your behind off with zero direction and thrown into a boiling pot of manure with a director that cares so little about you that he fires you 2 weeks before Christmas and 4 days before your probationary period is over so they don’t have to pay benefits. Culture is nonexistent with the director and you’re just someone he can push through during the busy times. You’re only as good as he wants you to be. I don’t recommend working here in this role if you have a family. It will not last if the branch manager isn’t there to properly train you and the director doesn’t care. I hope reads this so he realizes it

Treatment is deplorable
Extremely understaffed, worked like dogs. Don't get sick or they treat you even worse. Racism, the male MRO'S treat female workers like animals. Harrassment is all over. They play favorites.

Good place to work
People are great. Environment too relaxed. Not enough support for new employees, training could be better. Technology is okay, but a lot of reliance on manual work. Room for improvement.

free sports lunches
It is a fun work place with many sports golf etc table tennis
The hardest part of the job is meeting deadline of time end of the

month report. Every one is friendly it feels like family the team leaders and the coordinators well taking care of .


The company is the main focus not to let entries go in to storage

getting the work done on time.
Pros
free lunches etc

Okay
It's a pretty good place to work. Some of the people are super welcoming and friendly. The lack of communication is a serious problem tho and they overwork you. The peak times where it is the busiest they have you working alone, it's nice because time goes by sorta fast but, it's extremely stressful and it kind of seems like going above and beyond is never good enough.
Other than that it's a good place to gain experience, to learn how to handle stressful situations, and to learn how to deal with confrontation/angry customers/people.
