Good job ,people not so friendly and helpful as I would have expected to be. Training has been not satisfying as I had to pick up from the colleagues the information , No trainer has done the training as it should normally be .The rest was a decent job with big expectations from management but process training was a mess.
I got a thrill out of placing orders and importing and exporting sensitive materials which save elderly lives in timely matters . If there was a issue on the warehouse floor I was one of the employees that would fix the issues as quickly as possible. You have to remember someone life is on the line if it was you medicine or personal materials you would want others to do the same.
I personally like working in a warehouse environment so I may be a little partial.. I like the fast paced keep you on your toes kind of role & this is definitely that. You have to be a quick thinker and pay attention to the smallest details. You have to understand that alot of other people/companies/events/projects etc depend on us to ship out correct materials on time. There's a great team in there working very hard to ensure this happens and I'm happy to be a part of it.
To find a company that would offer such an opportunity is rare, to find one with such a strong and inspirational leader is unheard of (although his British accent is funny). A 2 year career plan and mind blowing training (some of which is far beyond my current level).
More companies should take note of this workplace concept and give real people deal opportunity.
often work done receives credit only by those assigning the work (that have nothing to do with its completion)
managers are unwilling to take the time to train therefore deadlines and communication with client is lacking.
They do not believe in promoting from within.
There is no balance between home and work (often the demands of the company come first no matter the circumstance...unless you are a manager).
Lot of people gets hired and whom they dont like gets fired not based on productivity or hardwork or attendance but based on racism .they got favouritism.the white manager sleeps around with beautiful girls and fires hardworking people. Bad reputation to work there from my side. Not paid well
But the management was so great. They do not do a good job of working with employees to help them grow, so there is little to no upward movement. Employees are ask for input that ultimately is completely looked over. There are also big opportunities for management to work on their communication skills.
Very professional without going over board. Very stressful 100% of the time. it helps if you like your adrenaline running wild all the time. learning about other cultures and countries. making friends all over the world. LOVE EVERY MINUTE! Management don't get on your case as long as your work gets done. Nice team of people working with you. Only the best get to work at KN.
Great management and team, I would treated no different by anyone and learned a lot about logistics and key traits in the field. Also if you ever make a mistake they will properly support you to be the best employee you can be.
Freight forwarding is a stressful job, however the managers empower their employees. Initiative, and be proactive are keys to success in this industry. Very rewarding see product move across the world in a timely manner and knowing you did your part.
Kuehne Nagel is a very good company to work for they always focus on their employees doing the best they can and also deal with the needs and wants of the customer always thinking outside the box and improving as a company in the whole.
KN is a good place to work. A very dependable and stable company. You never have to worry if your check will be deposited or delivered. Benefit package is good but you have to choose what works best for you. Sometimes getting questions answered through HR can be difficult. Typical day there depends on the customer contract. But mostly its everyday warehousing. Receiving product and shipping with as little delay, cost and stress to the customer as possible. In my opinion KN does under appreciate what the lower level employees mean to the company. They are under valued in pay and annual bonuses.
