Pros

It's most peoples first job for the entry level positions so they have THE most amazing training- it really sets you up for success. It's a really tough job and requires a lot of hard work but if you stick it out, they only hire form within so there's a lot of room for advancement. The company as a whole is also one of the best in the industry so the product basically sells itself.

Cons

A LOT of hard work- you have to be dedicated to working, sometimes staying late, and dealing with rejection.

    Pros

    -Pay - depending on your franchise you can make alot of money (but it takes extremely hard work)
    -Numerous competitions (corporate or franchise driven) - corporate always gives out opportunity to add more money on top of your base salary. Depending on your franchise, you may also have more competitions to add more money. Corporate usually has a monthly, quarterly, and annual sales competitions.
    -Learn how to be a professional - great for college students that still have the mindset of a young, driven individual. This job isn't easy and takes the right type of personality.
    -No micromanagement - This totally depends on your franchise. Mine in particular didn't have any. You have the freedom to do what you want throughout the day, just turn in the results.
    Training - training throughout the country and constant roleplays with your office throughout the weeks.

    Cons

    -Cold Calling - expect to hit at least 30-40 doors at a minimum to establish your book of business.
    -Day to day commute - depending on your office, you may have to check in and check out of your office everyday. Even having to drive an hour to just get to your territory.
    -Long hours - never expect to leave the office no earlier than 630PM
    -Turnover on book of business - it may take 3-4 months to close a deal. But one mess up from the carriers to burn a deal. Since this is logistics and everything is outsourced, you can't control when carriers have issues. Sometimes there isn't much communication to the carriers.
    -Not a lot of Career Opportunities - since everything is franchise based. The highest position anyone can get virtually sales wise is a Sales Manager at the local franchise. Once that position is filled, your nothing more than a account executive or account manager.
    - Benefits - not that much, to little vacation days. No vision plan.

    Pros

    The plus to working with a sales driven organization is the relationship building. It comes naturally and makes the work atmosphere positive. Built by an entrepreneur, this franchise based organization is full of growth, ideas, and dedicated employees. The franchise is a close knit family. Working together to meet individual, office, and overall organizational goals.

    Cons

    The corporate office is divided. Half of the corporate staff is a team. The communication, teamwork and support is exceptional. The corporate freight management is unprofessional and appear to be living out their high school days. Turnover is high in that department because of the negative atmosphere and poor leadership. Qualifications for their position is questionable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate directors should be made to take regular leadership training and be supervised more thoroughly. Franchise owners/management - keep up the good work. Relationship building is excellent and an employee motivator.
