Pros

nice facility, updated software and phones, training, my manager is laid back, as long as you work hard and make money you won't have bosses breathing down your neck. Uncapped earning potential.

Cons

benefits aren't great, if you don't know about transportation-the industry is very cut throat and makes it hard to take vacation time, takes time to build business.

Advice to Management

It seems like the DM's are always in meetings- it would be nice to share with everyone what decisions you guys are making for the company.

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money with this company. However, it's not for everyone. Be ready to make a minimal amount of money for a while but if you put in the work, you will get the results.

    Cons

    The benefits are horrible. The company morale is not great. Since the company has grown so much, they should do more for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get feedback on department managers and meet with your employees to see where they are from a business standpoint. Let them know directly what is to be expected.

    Pros

    They seem to really work with your schedule and will try and place you with a broker that will best suite you as well as the broker. Not just the broker. Commission was a plus and so were the hours that the company was open.

    Cons

    expediters only take 2% off of their sales. This seems extremely low seeing as how the expediters are the ones who normally cover the freight as well as follow it from pick up to drop off. For how much the company pulls in from the brokers alone (they only get 20-25% of their freight plus they have to pay their expediters commission out of theirs) it wouldn't hurt them to put a little more into their employees 401K.
