Able to handle high Stress and work load, difficult interactions with the staff members who area very intrusive and already have there own loyalty to Mainfreight. You will be asked to be dishonest with clients on there behalf. Must enjoy a competitive environment and be involved in meetings and Staff drinks on site. The client Reps are wonderful and was always a pleasure to do favours for on your own time.

Mainfreight as a whole is an amazing company to work for and they look after you in regards to bonuses supplying your fruit every day and your coffee. However management side of things is that absolutely disgrace as there is no support.
Pros
Bonuses, free fruit supplier coffee everyday, some team member are great.
Cons
doesn't Doesn't offer you any support and feedback on your performance, speak to you in an unprofessional Manor.

A lot of work to do and it never stops. Constant growth which is always good. Management listens but that's about it. Upper management tell storey's (to no benefits). Ground staff are very supportive and always willing to help others in the need. Onsite parking is huge !
Pros
Growth, promotion, and the floor team !
Cons
Long contracted hours and poor hourly rate !

Mainfreight was my first job as a kid out of high school and it wasn't what I was expecting. They gave a job where people could just dump their workload onto myself and I couldn't get everything done in time as computers are not always reliable. Yes it was alright at first but the more I stayed there the more I wanted to leave as the environment and culture was repelling me away.
Pros
Felexible lunch breaks, start and finish times
Cons
Overload of work to the point that the computer could not keep up.

-doing inwards, putting away pallets(high reach) -picking orders(high reach, picker LO) -loading trucks(with forklift) -unloading trucks(with forklift) -unloading containers (with forklift) -loading containers (with forklift) I learned the computer side of things Management don't bother you. They do have favourites which is very annoying cause their protected and pretty much get away with anything. culture was good cause the people were good management would ruin it doing 9 1/2 hours every day getting paid monthly and doing the amount of work that we do. the most enjoyable was the people I worked with.

Expect you to work more than 9 hour days with no overtime pay. I Put in for 2 hours overtime they gave me a written warning. I Got sent out of town ever day sometimes didn't get back till late and expect you to do 7 towns in 9 hours, they don't care what time you get back. They don't pay holiday leave loading. You say something to stick up for yourself and they will make your life even harder. Manager has double standards for his staff.
Pros
Apples from time to time
Cons
Long hours no overtime pay
