Former Employee - National Account Manager in Scottsdale, AZ
Former Employee - National Account Manager in Scottsdale, AZ

I worked at Echo Global Logistics full-time (more than an year)

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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