Fast paced environment with room to acquire an a wealth of industry knowledge and experience
Vessel Operations Representative (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC25 May 2016
Great place to acquire experience. MSC offers no training so its is sink or swim in most cases, but it makes you better, more knowledgeable in the end. Great co-workers. The managers themselves were great, but company structure was not the best and for that reason a lot of time and money was lost. If working at MSC, you have to expect to do other people and departments tasks. Most enjoyable part was that everyday was different and you really get the chance to tackle every situation thrown at you. ad constantly learned new
Pros
Great environment to acquire industry knowledge
Cons
Company structure, lack of communication from management

Monotonous work with friendly colleagues
Administrative Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC5 November 2015
I did not enjoy my time at this company. It wasn't the right personal fit for me. While I am very comfortable in a structured, professional office atmosphere, MSC was an overly rule-oriented and micro-managed company. It is the type of atmosphere where management noticed if an employee punched in 5 minutes late, but did not notice if an employee worked hours in overtime.

This being said, I very much liked my supervisor and colleagues and the upper management was slowly moving from an older generation to a much younger generation. It is possible that a slow transition was in effect behind the scenes that hadn't yet trickled down to the employees.

On a personal level the work was very technical, not very stimulating and very monotonous.
Pros
Good manager
Cons
Overly structured environment

Logistics and Intermodal Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC7 November 2012
a typical day consist of about 150 emails, 60 to 70 phone calls from all stakeholders> learn everyday that always be at the top of your work and have a good back up record. Management always has to come in to help when there is a problem that need trouble shooting. Always refer duties that are not for you to the appropriate quarters. The hardest part is to keep tract with the followup for all the different stakeholders. The most fun of it is when i seethe client happy for a positive result and all the words of appreciations.
