When coming to work expect the unexpected never assume what you're going to do cause they always have a plan for you never assume that you're going to get off every night at the same time cause depending on the work means different time and different hours the job pay is good long as you working well and get your job tasks done in a timely fashion.

Always something to learn, hands on was the best way. Management team was great, wanted to be there longer but it was only temporary. The people I worked with were team players, if one man was behind there was always someone there to lend a hand.
Pros
Easy going enviorment.

very easy going environment, I learned about the program they had set up for the RF units pretty quickly, management was well set up, they let us know what the workload was for the day and future days so that we knew as a team how much we needed to get done. The hardest part of the job went hand in hand with with the most enjoyable, knowing that we could only work 40 hours maximum so we would stay late during the weekdays so we could get out early on Fridays, which was very beneficial unless we needed more money
Pros
worked with my schedule
Cons
pay

Pros
Learned how to drive the "cherry-picker".
Cons
Temps were only allowed to use the old machines.

During peak seasons there are longer days and mandatory weekends. During the regular season it was more manageable. The warehouse is very clean and safe place to work. If you're punctual and do your job shouldn't have any problems.
Pros
OT is normally available
Cons
Only 1 break besides 30 min lunch

Kuehne + Nagel is a great company with great work rules and precautions. The management was excellent but to be honest the new management now is not really living up to the old management. Great work place and great workers.
