Pros

The people
Great Building
Beer on friday

Cons

1.) 35,000 salary non-negotiable
2.) expected make 80-100 cold calls per day
3.) Training program is horrible. Basically waste 3 months sitting in a classroom.
4.) You will absolutely get blown out of the water on any full truckload quote you do with someone. That's how you start making money on full truckload, not moving a single pallet for $30 gross profit.
5.) Your job can easily be eliminated since your the 3rd party. You have customers yelling at you for missed/drop times, and theirs nothing you can do about it.
6.) Extremely hard grow a book of business being a new person. Basically any company in the USA is in the database taken by some seasoned vet.
7.) Won't see decent bonus until your 3 or 4 year. The average rep last a year at the company. Makes sense.

Advice to Management

Honestly a college frat house. Knew plenty of people sleeping with each other after Thursday night softball games.

    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.
