Pros

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

Cons

Horrible 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 ManagementAdvice

Stop changing things, and actually pay people for their hard work

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

    Pros

    -company culture: casual dress code, young energetic people, beer fridays
    -great managment: good mix of focusing on metrics and pushing us harder to do better than we think we can
    -work hard, play hard: I actually enjoy being at work and competing with my co-workers as well as meeting up with them on the weekends
    -very much a place where you get out what you put in

    Cons

    -there is a high volume of cold calling involved so if you don't like being on the phone or dont have a thick enough skin/no backbone, then its probably not the place for you
    -it can take a long time to start earning commission and I've noticed some of the younger reps right out of college get easily discouraged and a negative attitude gets them no where but out the door. people who came from another sales role seem to "get it" a little more and know the kind of hard work it takes to make it in sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time developing your team, especially the ones right out of college. Its your job as a manager to figure out how each is motivated and get them back on track when they get frusterated, work on strenghts/weakness, get involved enough to where you are actually invested in seeing them succeed and show it!
