    Great to start out in sales, but the company is constantly looking for ways to pay you less.

    if you work hard and stick with it, good things will come. great people. great atmosphere. days fly by. it will teach you tons of skills. work with people in various industries large and small which will help for future interviews anywhere.

    takes a while and hard work to get to commission. holidays and taking days off is kind of hard because everyone has own book.

    Pros

    young workforce with similar interests. kickball team on thursdays, softball team on tuesdays, beer fridays and happy hours regularly. management has expectations and stands by them but let's you handle your business how you choose. i have been here 10 months and am going to hit commission this month

    Cons

    it's a sales job where you have to work hard and mostly find your own leads. first six months is heavy cold calling but now i am doing mainly customer management with less calls. putting in more than 40 hours is necessary to getting ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    some more advanced training would be helpful but other than that, job has been what i expected and overall good.

    Pros

    Fun company culture in an energetic, young office. I love coming into work every day because of my coworkers. Unique career potential for every individual, you have the opportunity to carve out your own career path and management is there to help and encourage you every step of the way.

    Cons

    Logistics is a very fast-paced industry so be prepared for a new challenge everyday. But hard work pays off because there is a lot of potential to make money...uncapped commission!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It will be important to maintain the open door policy with management as we continue to grow.
