Average at best! Much nicer places to work then here.
Customer Service Co-ordinator (Former Employee) –  Felixstowe, Suffolk20 May 2019
When I worked here I witnessed so much internal bullying, offensive language, racism and a very low staff morale.
The pay was alright and the hours were standard office hours, but the culture at Schenker in Felixstowe was very unpleasant.
So many staff here need to re-educate themselves on what is acceptable behaviour.
Many employees feeling undervalued, and bullied leading to poor mental health with no support.
Pros
Decent salary
Cons
Low staff morale, no support from management, a lot of internal bullying.

Good place to work
Reach Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Wilnecote, Warwickshire27 February 2019
It was a good place to work & the staff are very friendly. I enjoyed my time there but I was only there for a short term contract so unfortunately only worked there a few months.
The manager I had was the best he listened when you asked him something & did his best to look after his staff. If you go there & work for Dom then you are in good hands as he knows what he’s doing & as long as you work hard & don’t mess around he will help you & look after you. He’s always fair with everyone.
Pros
Good managers & friendly staff
Cons
Can’t always get a full time job

Stimulating, Challenging - great place to work
BDM (Former Employee) –  London Heathrow Airport, Greater London10 October 2018
Required to manage multiple tenders across multiple verticals within a highly skilled team incl. solutions design, operations, IT, Legal and Finance. Learned negotiating skills with contracts and how to manage a full logistics tender process. Fun and hard working culture, great people to work with on the team. Most enjoyable part of the job is meeting customers and seeing opportunities progress. The most difficult part of the job is managing customer expectations.
Pros
Working with a great team of people!
Cons

Leader (Current Employee) –  Tamworth, Staffordshire7 October 2018
highly demanding workplace with few rewards, expected to work more hours than required with ability to be very flexible- very poor work life balance
great team of people and can be fun, although many issues/differences internally with staff depending on the contract your working for.

Poor bullying managers
An employee (Former Employee) –  Tamworth, Staffordshire15 September 2018
Job was great, BUT be careful with some of the managers there.favourtism is rife.lazy ones rewarded, hardworkers don't get recognised nor rewarded..people kiss a$$$ to get to the top.
If you voice your opinion it will go down as a strike, the only great thing about the job was the salary.
.there is no flexibility for childless people, but if you have kids you can take as many sick, or days,time off as you want.


There's a lot of give give and no take.

Approach this place with caution.
Pros
Easy commute.salary is good
Cons
Managers are army sergeants, and lazy keyboard warriors

I liked this job as I built good relationship with customers as well as with my work colleagues. Only minus was the lack of a space in the office. But overall I would recommend this place.

Operator (Former Employee) –  Heathrow, Greater London19 February 2018
A big company with a big name, however there is a lot to wish for. The new comers are thrown onto a dip waters without much of a support. This is perhaps why there is a constant rotation as people cannot withstand continious pressure and burden of the surplus of work.
Pros
Not a lot.
Cons
Obsolite system, slow intranet hampering daily work tasks.

forwarding agent (Current Employee) –  Dinazzano7 October 2017
Nice work environment. Friendly colleagues. Very fast paced environment. A lot of potential incomes are missed, due to a bad managerial policy. Hope someone will notice it, before it is to late!
