    Pros

    Huge opportunity to make uncapped commission here. Due to the current size of the company's sales team, there are several large accounts available which have the potential to double your income in months. This is a place where you can actually see the results of all the hard work you put in. Very rare for a sales job.

    Cons

    The industry hours are not ideal, but the personalities in the office make it a fun environment anyway. If you like to skate by and do the minimum, don't even bother applying. This job requires hard work and dedication everyday that you show up. Not for the lazy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the expansion. Maybe add some additional sales training for people who are new to the industry to help them get started quicker.

    Pros

    -Fast paced environment, never a boring day at work
    -Uncapped commission structure, the harder you work the more money you can make
    -Owners are always on the floor to help you grow
    -Great location, South Loop next to the Willis Tower and Board of Trade
    -Awesome atmosphere, everyone comes to work hard and have fun, have made some close friends working here
    -Rapidly growing company, they doubled in size when I was working there and I know they just recently knocked down their wall and took over the office space next to them

    -There could be better benefits

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in hard working employees, the talent that was brought in towards the end of my tenure was top notch. Give back to the employees in terms of a better benefits package.

    Pros

    Wear what you like to work. It's commission driven. Room for growth. Located across the street from CBOT! Work hard play hard. Has trucks make job a lot easier. Great benefits , included health insurance , vacation, gym membership , Starbucks, basketball company teams , and my favorite happy hours!

    Cons

    Long hours, but you make a lot of money. Stressful meeting customer demands, talking to truck drivers is a drag. A lot of energy in a small space . Goals are set high. A lot is excepted of you

    Advice to Management

    Location is great ,bigger space needed, growing to fast, owners are focused on growth.

    Pros

    I have worked at several sales companies this job sucks!!

    Cons

    You work over 50 hours a week. You are not paid on a salaried scale because if you take a day off they dock you eight hours. They like pushovers not real professionals. They also are not a true transportation cmpany because they don't have trucks. They are strictly a logistics company.

    Advice to Management

    You guys down their need to put a real system in place for your sales people. Also you need to write up an attendance policy so that every employee will know what is expected of them before you fire them.

    Pros

    If you're happy making no money, working 50+ hrs for peanuts, and being put down everyday. Then this job is for you!

    Cons

    Owners are extremely shady and do not speak in english half of the time. You are working out of a smelly basement, kiss the Sun and happiness goodbye! Lowest salary and commisions in the industry. The owners will put you down and talk bad about you behind your back, when you quit they will tell all your clients they fired you. They do not work as a "team" and will turn the guy next to you against you. Best advice I can give you is to never start. They do not care about you, and will throw you under a bus the first chance they get. They do not pay on time, and more than 50% of the time its the incorrect amount.
