    Great for entry level and career driven employees. Put in the time and work can be financially rewarding.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. I learned more about the cleaning crews' lives than my own family.

    I have been working at Expeditors full-time

    Pros

    Currently have several open positions. (one might ask why)

    Cons

    Some say management is cleaning house. Some say it's border line age discrimnation and other say its just poor leadership. If you are not part of the boys club you won't last long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    House cleaning needs to start with head management or lack there of, or things will NEVER change. You can fire people and the smart ones move on but at the end of the day you are the one left with egg on your face and down another "GOOD" employee. Down seven people in the last six months, doesn't that raise a flag?

    I worked at Expeditors full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Management involves everyone and benefits are great.

    Cons

    Pay is very low compared to competitors, there is some incentive to work for department bonuses but these are typically reserved for product supervisors and managers. Lower level employees will be worked to death. Sales force lacks major incentives and it becomes more and more difficult in sales to continue to make decent money the longer you are there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incentive sales team better.

    Pros

    Well established company with great benefits and pay. Promote from within. Nice culture.

    Cons

    You give your life to this company. I never realized working in logistics was as demanding as being a brain surgeon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very sales driven. A manager is nothing without a strong #2.

    Pros

    The people are nice and friendly. Especially non management personnel. Some of the management will listen to ideas and take an interest in their employees.

    Cons

    Some of the management does not take an interest in its personnel. They concern themselves with meeting goals and making a profit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work more on making the employees happy
