    24/7 job

    (Current Employee) Scottsdale, AZ

    ProsThey hire you with no experience. They have decent events.

    ConsHorrible compensation. 24/7 job. Even worse management. Things change at the drop of the hat, and you are expected to deal or upper management threatens your job. Something happens that is out of your control. Upper management threatens to write you up.

    Trust me its not worth it.. Especially since other logistics companies are actively recruiting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop changing things, and actually pay people for their hard work

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worst job on the planet

    Carrier Sales (Current Employee) Scottsdale, AZ

    ProsWell there are no pros. First of all working in freight, or transportation is one step above being a car salesmen. The only people dumber than the management at Echo, are the dirty truck drivers, and shady immigrant "owners" of small trucking companies. The have no concept of leadership, especially in the Arizona Office. They bought out Advantage transportation, and those are the worst people on the planet.

    ConsMid level management is clueless. They think they are so much better than the employees. Especially in the "carrier sales" department. These managers were the kiss ass type, and barely booked loads. I worked there 11 months, did not have 1 review, or goal setting session. The AZ office is run by all Advantage transportation employees, and they are clueless how to run a business. I have been in the indusrty for years, the AZ office has maybey one more year before they close it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYelling at people is not managment. In the AZ office they just yell, literally all day. The employees work in fear daily, not to take lunch, and working 7am to 530-600 pm is "manditorty" with no overtime pay. The business they are practicing is illigal. The AZ managers spend all day hiding info from the Chicago office, so they dont get yelled at. They are miserable people in a miserable job. DONT EVER WORK THERE.

    Bad pay and no opportunity

    Client Sales Representative (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsYoung/ fun culture. Relaxed work environment.

    ConsCompensation is terrible compared to other sales jobs. There isn't much internal opportunity here. Good stepping tone to leave and get a better job which most people end up doing. Huge turnover here.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
