I worked at A & A Contract Customs Brokers full-time (More than a year)
1) Very strong and focused executive team - The company is following a proven operating system that works great and has got the whole company running on the same page.
2) Stong culture - The conpany culture is rooted around caring, working hard and helping others. Its not just words on the wall, they live and breathe the values. And it is being followed by all from the top. Negative and toxic people are swiftly dealt with and addressed.
3) Company cares about the people - If you are sick, have personal issues, family member thats sick or dying. Basically anything that requires you to miss work, you are supported 100% by your peers and the leadership team.
4) Innovation and improvement is encouraged - Leadership is open and willing to try new things that can improve the business and the employee experience.
5) Professional and personal development is encouraged.
6) Location - Its headquartered in Surrey so if you live that way, nothing beats the commute.
1) Customs brokerage isn't the most exciting industry.
2) Outdated brokerage system
Advice to Management
Stay the course. You are not just head and shoulders above other companies
in your industry, but also most companies period.
Don't worry too much about aging staff. If you keep building a strong reputation, skilled staff in the industry will gravitate to your company.
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at A & A Contract Customs Brokers (Toronto, ON) in August-2018.
First was a 30 Min phone interview, lots of questions regarding background, experience. Second was an hour long in person interview, very in depth, lots of self reflection. Make sure you know full names of people you have worked for, and previous salaries at previous jobs, as they ask about those.
