Take this job if you have no other offers out of college.

Client Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsThe people
Great Building
Beer on friday

Cons1.) 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 Senior ManagementHonestly a college frat house. Knew plenty of people sleeping with each other after Thursday night softball games.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
