Lovely company to work for, even though it was very stressful at times, as it was extremely busy and not many opportunities to catch your breath.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

Very big freight forwarding company

Very big company to work for, hard work and long hours. The hardest part was the work load but this learned me how to manage my days. Great workplace and fun colleagues.

Pros

Comfortable work atmosphere

Cons

Long hours

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

Productive, fun and effecient

K+N is a stable company with a good track record on its global financials. The organization is well positioned for efficiencies related to the future client in ZA.

A lot needed improvement

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.

Wonderful team work

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.

Pros

Medical aid and Provident fund

Cons

office hours and no weekends
