Great learning environment
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.
Pros
Great social environment
Cons
Great volumes

Good company to work for but big change in management led to my resignation
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.

Very productive working place
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
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
Long tideous hours of work

Productive and enjoyable
A typical day is the 9-5 job. I learn that with each client you have to be a chameleon fitting in with they personality. Management are people that don't get to interact with me, our relationship is based on Good Morning and Goodbye. My co-workers and I have a professional relationship that comes with mutual respect. The hardest part is when you have a load of people as if they have been dropped off by a bus(busy reception area, walk in clients, telephone ringing endlessly). The most enjoyable part of my job is being noted and feel appreciated.
Pros
Monthend I get to leave early
Cons
Restrected working hours

Great team and environment
Generally day to day would be ensuring that all MHE and other equipment was in good working order, taking care of servicing and maintenance.

Preparing for audits which were conducted quarterly and booking staff on courses, ie., first aid, fire, H&S.


I enjoyed the environment and worked with a great team. Always prepared to help when asked, even if it was not part of their assigned duties.


Management was extremely approachable and easy to talk to but did not micro-manage.

productive but not fun anymore to work for
I am always earlier than usual so that I can check all emails to see what happened in the night time
register all new shipments and advice clients about them

Over the years I have learn to respect my clients needs and also my management
I have a good relationship with all the people that I am working with
The hardest part of my job is not to have the back up from my manager

What give me pleasure at work is when I have received an compliment email from my clients to thank me for my hard work and effort that I have put into their shipments
Pros
only lunch time and that i also bring at my desk
Cons
i am at work round about 7am and leave about 16:45

Productive and fun within the workplace
Its a challenging field, as its ranked 2nd in the world, regarding Freight and Fowarding.

Hard work is expected by the company to all indivisuals within the company. It actually grooms you as a person to limits you have never thought of reaching due to the team work and duties are set out by the company.


Overall Its strong market position lies in the sea freight, air freight, contract logistics and overland businesses, with a clear focus on providing IT-based integrated solutions.”


The performances of K+N’s sea freight and air freight business units are again the main pillars of success.
In both areas, high internal productivity and strict cost management compensated for the costs of investments made in technology and product development and strengthening of niche segments.

My review personally, this company has took the best out me, and has showed me over the couple of months that dedication is the only key when one is looking for success.
Pros
Free social meetings
Cons
Long hours with no overtime provided.

fun workplace and productive
It was 2004 Dec and we were to carry our first major stock take and I was few months in the position of receiving supervisor and filing system or documents storage in my office was poorly stored. My manager was so furious because I could provide documents and answers to them at the right time and I was so embarrassed.

with the help of my managers PA I could develop effective filing structure (sequential) and my manager at kuehne & nagel and management at large were helpful and supportive to their staff.

I am a team player and having the ability to work well with others.


The hardest part was to control absenteeism and monitoring sick and annual leaves because employees were to submit themselves and headquarters were in JHB.


we enjoyed having the whole week to rest when we worked Saturday and Sunday 6/6.
Pros
Over time
Cons
Long hours
