    I worked at Greatwide Logistics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Greatwide is made up of some very dedicated, hard-working individuals. The work allows a lot of autonomy to "run your business" and with that a lot of responsibility! you will learn a ton working with these folks. Pay is very competitive, you just have to negotiate.

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance does not exist. It Transportation and its a skeleton crew, so you will get the calls in all hours of the night and weekends. and Operations "owns" safety so you will have a ton of Safety duties on top of your Operations work. Cutting out a chunk of time for vacations can be difficult to impossible. and if you go, dont think you are going without your company smartphone and laptop... because you will be!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and remember that your field operatives need a break now and then and actually help them to get it. Otherwise, upper management is on the right path for the most part.... just dont forget the human aspect of your teams.
