    Pros

    The details of the job as it was explained to me was exactly what the job entailed. The support and training I received was great. They give clear expectations of what they are looking for you to do and support that with onboard training and continued training. They make it easy to ask questions and help get you the correct information you are looking for.

    Cons

    Some processes could be improved upon, but at least they are always looking at better ways of doing things and your opinion matters.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    I left a great company in the 3PL space and could not be happier with my choice. They offer great flexibility and the management does everything they can to help you succeed. Team atmosphere with no back stabbing or pitting associates against each other. New leadership team has a great vision for the future.

    Cons

    Training/onboarding for your specific role could be improved, at times it feels like sink or swim with little explanation on work expectations.
