What would my first year look like?
Mainfreight is more than just a business; we are involved in transporting, warehousing and global supply chain solutions for our customers. To understand the fundamentals you would spend a minimum of 12 months in the operations.
Loading freight into trucks and trains, coordinating with international customers importing and exporting freight into or out of New Zealand, picking and dispatching orders around the country – these are a few of the different responsibilities you might do in your first year of Mainfreight.
A real job with real responsibility and real benefits. This might be in Transport, Warehousing or Air & Ocean. Make the most of this time learning the nuts and bolts of the business, this will hold you in good stead for your Mainfreight career.
You will be assigned a mentor in your first couple of months with Mainfreight. A mentor will be a more experienced team member who will give you the support you need to navigate the ins and outs of our business and meet your long term career goals. A mentor can offer their knowledge, wisdom and experiences in a variety of fields.
Where can I go in the future?
The opportunities for growth are endless within Mainfreight if you are willing to make the most of your time in the operations. As we promote from within, we fill all roles in the business from team who have started on the floor.
Future roles in the business are endless, offering positions in Sales, Account Management, Operations, Customer Services, Supply Chain Management, Management, IT, Training & Development and many others nationally and overseas.
