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 Management

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

    Pros

    The company offers some flexibility in hours and work-life balance. Participates in charity events. Provides social events for employees during major holidays and the summer.

    Cons

    Leadership treats employees with no dignity. Company-wide quarterly meetings to address rapid company growth and impressive revenue, but cuts employee's pay and gives little to no raises year over year. Employees are treated as robots expected to do more with less with less pay.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees that make your revenue as valueable people. People who have families and dignity. The politics in the workplace are the worse I've ever seen. If you are not in the "clique" of executives, management and middle management white employees, you do not excel in this company. Its internal promotions are based on if you know someone in upper managment and nothing to do with hard work, dedication and knowledge. There is an "us" against "them" mentality displayed each day.
