The staff were awesome, some of the hardest and most helpful workers I had the pleasure of working with.
I would work there again in a heartbeat.
Fridays were fun, as it would be casual day and lunchtime would be take outs.
Deadline-orientated environment where the client is king.
Most things I know about freight forwarding, I learnt at Kuehne + Nagel.
Management can be very hands on, and often seek to guide rather than just monitor.
Workplace culture is both social and professional.
Workload tends to be the biggest challenge; however, employees thrive on customer satisfaction.
My experience with the company was not that good because of how we were transferred to the company. There were lot of discrepancies particularly with contract. Though it was partly fixed I still continued to work there.
Working for Kuehne & Nagel Cape Town was one of the best companies I worked for.
We always worked hard under a lot of pressure but still loved going to work cause everyday we had a different challenge with exporting our clients goods.
Will go back and work for the company anytime if they will have me reason for leaving we relocated.
hardest part was leaving the everyone behind that I worked with especially my clients loved working with them all.
Working from start to finish on the groupage files that include invoicing after vessel sails
Worked with 3 different ports Auckland, Singapore, Dubai
Making sure all cargo was in order before loading
All documents was correct
Great company as a whole but it's Johannesburg and Cape Town branches are unfortunately renowned for favouritism, unfairness based on many criteria.
Too many management changes in too short a period led to the morale of staff deteriorating and quitting.
I maintained a great relationship with my line manager as well as the MD and my clients but as that changed it became unpleasant under new management. Many managers were operationally minded but lack people skills and talent development.
I manage the full operations day to day from operations to costing and budgets.
I had 4 managers reporting to myself and we came along very well.
My hardest part of my job was to ensure I get what I work for and that is results never give up.
Typical day at work would be all the hard work, target reaching and working standards
What I learned is to always perform at my best and never aim for average
Management was good but not strict because I did what was to be done and everything else was fine
My co-workers were good and hard workers just like I was and were motivated by me as I was the youngest of them all
The hardest part of the job was working more but paid less
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with people you that they trusted you in every way
the working environment is great, team members as well. i have learned a lot about being a creditors clerk. the hardest part of the job, is to get operation to approve or to follow up the invoices in time. the most enjoyable part of the job, when operations team approve the invoices in time and make payments to suppliers in time to avoid accounts to get suspended.
