    Pros

    People - Hands down the best thing about working at Expeditors is the people. From the bottom to the top, most everyone is down to earth and approachable. Like any company, there are a few poor exceptions; however, nearly everyone treats each other like family. Some of the best people I know are here.
    Work/Life Balance - In terms of total hours worked, most people can just put their 40 hours in then go take care of other important things going on in their lives.
    Innovation - Employees are encouraged to spearhead "innovation projects" that allow them to move the company forward in a new direction.

    Cons

    Slow - Things can move veerry sloooooowly at Expeditors. Some processes are so plagued by the need for approval after approval that work doesn't get done. There is a lot of merit in allowing employees make important decisions by themselves.
    No flextime or telecommuting options - This would be a huge benefit for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing on the business and strategy side! Really excited to see what's in store for us as a company in the near future! From the employee satisfaction side, don't be afraid to treat your people even better than you do now. I guarantee you that the more your greatest assets feel like they are a trusted and valued part of the company, the more they will work hard to do their best for the company!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Expeditors.

    Interview

    I applied on their website. I received a call from the hiring manager and was brought in for a interview. Right away I knew I wouldn't like working there if I got hired. The company culture is very "corporate". I've worked in Logistics for years and I've never seen a Logistics company have this strict of a dress code.They need to get with the times in that area. I wore a suit to the interview but seeing the other workers dressed like they work on Wall Street was very off putting. I was asked typical questions about my experience and what I'm looking for in a new job. I was offered the position but declined because they wanted to start me off as a temp (which wasn't stated on the job ad) and also paid very low compared to what I was making at my current job.
