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.

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

    Mediocre, but could be so much more

    Senior Software Developer (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Young culture and extracurricular activities are geared toward that. Atmosphere is light and loose. The potential here is staggering ... if they can reach it… Cons: Quantity over quality is the name of the game. Focus is on turning out code, which is often sub-par. It is not a collaborative environment.… Advice to Senior Management: There are a lot of young managers, who were promoted from within the company, which is generally good. But there is little balance between… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
