    I have been working at Fetch Logistics

    Pros

    I have been with the company for over 5 years and counting

    - Everyday is different and keeps you on your toes while making the days fly by
    - Compensation for this area is above average
    - Hard Work yields big commission checks
    - Great culture full of a good mix of people fresh out of college to veteran employees
    - Management cares about the employees as they show appreciation by rewarding us with sports teams, cookouts, and fin contests throughout the year.
    - Casual dress

    Cons

    - Need to work a couple Saturdays a year but they schedule you far in advanced so you have plenty of time to prepare (and its only a half day)
    - Not really a con but it is very fast paced so it someone cannot keep up they will fall behind.

    I have been working at Fetch Logistics full-time

    Pros

    -Casual Dress
    -Everyone is gets along great outside of work
    -Have cookouts 3 times a year
    -Have a family outing once a year as well

    Cons

    • Few opportunities for advancement
    • Never told when you are doing a good job. Just when you are not. There are no rewards ever for being a good employee
    • High turnover
    • Expected to lie on a daily basis
    • Unethical practices
    • Make you work Saturdays then changed the work week from Sunday-Saturday to Saturday-Friday to avoid paying overtime
    • Constantly changing the commission scale to get employees to work even harder for their commissions than they already do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually listen to your employees. We all have good ideas that we present to upper management but they never get implemented. Stop going on firing sprees all the time. It makes people uneasy about job security and no one will want to be loyal to your company. Also, stop screwing over your own employees all the time.

    I have been working at Fetch Logistics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Base salary is good and similar to other companies in the area
    - Commission is based on your own work - if you are willing to work hard, you can do well
    - Young staff - recent college grads fit in well and most of the staff is friends outside of work too, makes it enjoyable
    - Really fast paced - days fly by and it's challenging work with problem solving, not just calling
    - They realy do promote from within. I haven't seen them bring in any outside managers during my time. Also, promotions are based on ability, not seniority. If you are good, you can get promoted quick - you don't have to wait for someone else to move on or retire like many companies
    - It is an interesting industry to work in

    Cons

    - It is all phone work and mostly outbound, it can get boring for someone who is not aggressive or competitive - you have to have the drive and be willing to put in hard work to be successful at this

    It's a true outbound calling sales position, if that isn't what you want to do, this isn't going to be a good fit for you

    I have been working at Fetch Logistics full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was hired on as a member of the support staff and have been welcomed with open arms. I was fully trained on the logistics industry and the company processes as a whole starting from day 1. Everyone from the owners of the company, to management, to co-workers have been extremely helpful and supportive. It is a fast paced work environment that makes me look forward to coming to work everyday! Fetch offers a variety of cultural events from cookouts to group outings that stress the importance of a work/life balance. I am happy to be employed here and would recommend this company to anyone looking for an exciting career.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    I worked at Fetch Logistics

    Pros

    Pay is in line with most entry level jobs.
    Hours are 8-5, Monday-Friday.
    Challenging work, if you can withstand the environment

    Cons

    Training is not what they advertise, two days tops.
    Expected to know how industry works yet it is entry level.
    Aimless make countless phone calls all day.
    Constantly being reminded to make more and more phone calls.
    An eight hour day feels like 12, no lie.
    Makes you want to bang your head on the desk and not wake up till five.
    Very unsatisfying work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's difficult to offer advice to management, I guess hiring people who have worked in a call center(collections) would help with employee turnover.
