Pros

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

Cons

Cold 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 Management

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

    Advice to Management

    express where our goals come from, why they are what they are and how you propose we get there. The exec team also needs to make an effort to really understand employees day to day operations

    Pros

    Learn about the logistics industry, get a handed a beer on Friday. (Their way of bribing you not to quit.)

    Cons

    They pay you on a "draw", which means you are not valued, very high turnover. Commission structure is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Change the commission structure to something remotely obtainable. All we're told is how much money the company is worth because of our hard work yet at the end of the day we have nothing to show for it. The company owns zero assets...Except it's bottom level employees.
