    Sales, you swim or you don't. Long hours. Unable to "unplug" / step away for lunch / vacation. Long hours.

    Pros

    The management are all very nice people who are a joy to work with. The people that you get to work with are the best part of this company.

    Cons

    Low starting salary, poor professional growth potential- if you are looking to grow professionally and not just your cold-calling sales skills this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the excitement and fun in the organization and help account manager attain their career and financial goals in a more structured way.

    Pros

    Possibility to earn a lot of money, freedom to call any customer/ carrier that is not working with us. Good initial training program and continuing education. Casual dress code.

    Cons

    Very congested marketplace. If you aren't hitting your numbers you're gone. A lot of hours 50+ per week average. Frowned upon to take your full hour for lunch. 10% after year 2.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    allow more freedoms to reps if they're hitting their numbers.

    Pros

    Good opportunity to make money, decent entry level job

    Cons

    Sink or swim, lack of support or investment in employees and education

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change culture: more professional, offer real training and education for employess, may people leave there with no other valuable skills i.e. B2B selling other than in the logistics industry....given that your turnover average is 2-3 years it would be helpful to retaining employees as well as attracting graduates.

    I worked at Command Transportation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    TONS of potential to make serious money, especially at a young age.
    For the most part, you have complete autonomy of how you build your book of business.
    Great business model that MAKES MONEY!
    Company tells you what the job is upfront. Does not sugar coat what the opportunity is.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional coworkers at times. Wanted to tear my hair out at times because of lack of intelligence and common sense of peers.
    There are times when people will act in their own interests at any expense of their peers.
