Pros

Great work environment, young workforce.
Uncapped commission structure-room to make $$
Side sales contests to add some money at the start
Great training, I didn't know anything about freight when I started here.

Cons

Like any sales job, can be a grind in the beginning
Biggest room for advancement outside of building a book of sales is in Chicago HQ

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing, we're growing well!
