Hard work and innovative thinking opens the door to opportunities.

Sales/Operations (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsGreat management team, from front line sales management up through senior management. Fun culture. Entrepreneurial environment. Lots of opportunity to move around the company.

ConsCold call freight sales is a tough, cutthroat industry. Freight = problems, constant problems. Shipments are late, missed, broken, rerouted, not picked up, pricing renegotiated, etc. Commisson structure was impossible to understand. Antiquated draw. Now it has some tough Account Payable implications on sales people.

Advice to Senior ManagementSimplify the commissions. Do not penalize salespeople for missed payments. Salesmen do not approve credit. The company should bear that burden.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
