Post-Collegiate Frat Party

Logistics Sales Trainee (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsYoung atmosphere constant change, and Beer Friday.

ConsWhere to begin: For starters, the 'Logistics Sales Trainee' period is outrageous. 6 months of managers the same age as you making you feel replaceable. The training period is going through rotations for 6 months, doing jobs they don't want to hire actual full time employees for. In short, you upload documents for 6 months and then do one week of sales training and get thrown on the sales floor and are expected to make all these goals when you have very little guidance. The atmosphere is so young that promotions are based on favoritism, not because the person actually deserved it. Communication between departments is terrible, I would even say there is no communication period. The pay is horrible and not competitive to other Logistic companies in Chicago. The only way they make up for wasting 6 months of your life is bringing in beer on Fridays mid-afternoon.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees and what they have to say. Learn how to communicate with each other and make changes with the training program. The turnover rate would be much lower if even the smallest changes started getting made.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
