    I worked at GlobalTranz full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company had good pay for employees, a clean building, on site cafe, on site gym and indoor basketball court, good location off of the 101 freeway, and an on site clinic optional for employees along with a sometimes decent company culture.

    Cons

    High stress, absolutely no job security whatsoever, low employee morale, constant micromanagement, high turn over rate, and a guilt trip from management over any personal or health time. They also provide absolutely no transparency upon your possible sudden exit.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful to your employees and remember they are people with lives and families at home. The greed here is very obvious.

    I worked at GlobalTranz full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get a pay check that pays the bills.

    Cons

    -100% Passive Aggressive Environment. Examples include phony, "How are you today?" or "I just love your new haircut!" No response to emails after multiple follow up emails. Deep breaths of sigh with statements such as, "I can't do this let someone else do this for me." -Incompetent mangers who wear sweatpants and sweatshirts to work on a regular basis. When asking them direct questions they avoid the question... because they don't know the answer themselves, yet they are a, "Manager". -Individuals who can't even do simple tasks themselves in which their job entails. Yet they are promoted to, "Management" positions because their butt kissers. -Massive Micromanagement.

    I have been working at GlobalTranz full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This place is good for networking and really just learning the Transportation business, from a third party stand point

    Cons

    High turnover and work can be repetitious and monotonous at times. If you still dream and have goals, this place may not be for you.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication across all management, so that when something does happen, every one involved isn't getting mixed information.
