Pros

They provide excellent online seminars. It's a leading name in the Transportation Industry

Cons

They play "favorites". They do not provide a level playing field for all their Agents. Unless you are one of their "chosen few" you cannot cover any Military Freight. Other Landstar Agents stab you in the back and steal your customers. The Landstar Revenue Processing Department does not tell you if there is a problem with any of the billing to the customers - you have to find it out for yourself after they cut off the customer credit for non-payment of bills. Upper Management does not listen very well - heck! Upper Management does not listen at all!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide a level playing field for all the Agents - not just your chosen few. In this tough economy, you need to allow all of us to be able to work with the Military - especially the more experienced Agents and the ones who have freinds/family in the Military who can provide opportunities. Listen to what your people are saying!

    Pros

    Challenging, use of new technology, close relationship with Microsoft, IBM and other key vendors.

    Cons

    Management loves to tell you what you do wrong, but rarely, if ever, provide praise for things done right. The chances to grow there depend on who's backside you kiss not how good you are at your job. The employee reviews are a joke and you have to wait a year before taking vacation if you're a new hire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More positive feed back to employees would go a long way towards making them ever happier.
