Culture to me is something that is formed. The culture at CHEP force fed. The President tells you how to feel and that isn't how the people feel. The culture is face paced and people become burnt out. The teams run lean while there is an abundance of leadership. The company does have a robust rewards and recognition program and Managers and team members do use it. CHEP pays well and has good benefits by design to overcome the cultural issues.
Leadership is ever changing and it's hard to feel informed about change or supported.
I enjoyed working with my team in HR. They are no longer with the company, due to the high turn over, but I loved it.
I couldn't make a decision on my own. The company is very top heavy and HR had 3 leaders below the VP. All three leaders had to agree, even if it wasn't their practice area before even a superficial decision was made.
CHEP does a good job on company wide communications. They hold monthly calls run by the President and send frequent email communication of business activity.
I don't see this as an issue. The USA President is a women and was promoted from within up from a Logistics Manager. They don't discrimate based on sex, sexual orientation, or race.
This varies based on Department. Most areas they don't tend to promote. They tend to hire the skill set and not develop their people.
This has always been an issue for the company. They do offer internal and external training, but it's not easy to receive a promotion or career progression. As any company it's politics.
CHEP is extremely competitive in the market. Especially in Orlando. They also offer fantastic medical plans at a reasonable price.
The Orlando Operations Center is kept in clean and in good condition and the equipment is always up to date.
I personally don't understand this question completely. I would say CHEP does this well.
This really varies by Deparment and leadership. I feel the company has evolved since I started in 2007 and has gotten better. Given how lean they run employees do work long hours and can consist of weekend work. Overall I don't see this as a huge issue outside of the long hours.
I don't see many people who proudly support the company. Again. I keep going back to the good pay and benefits as the real pro.
CHEP is quite ruthless and shows no allegiance to its employees. They re-org constantly and that usually involves layoffs. It's hard to feel secure when your Manager is ever changing and your teammates are being laid off and then a replacement is hired with a slight change in responsibilities.
The buildings are up to code and is handicap accessible with ample parking for those.
The buildings are very safe and CHEP offers annual safety training.
I found my roles to be very challenging.
Company is very diverse based on the employee population. Given its a global company they do collaborate with other countries. With little autonomy it's hard to say the ideas and opinions are fully supported.
The pay and benefits.
The culture and lack of a career path.
