    Pros

    Unlimited earning potential
    Plenty of opportunity for growth
    Fun Atmosphere
    Flexible work schedule
    No micro management

    By far the best place I've ever worked. You get out what you put in. All you have to do is work hard, have some decent negotiating skills, and you will build up your commission checks to be as high as you want them to be. I make around six figures and there are people on both the sales side and operations side that make more than I do.

    Cons

    Fast growth means frequent changes. Just need to be able to go with the flow and adapt.

    Advice to Management

    None!

    Pros

    You can make good money...But why do that when you can be an agent else where and make a lot more money.

    Cons

    They will lie, steal and cheat their way to get you out of there. Unless you land a huge account you are SOL. If you are down with the devil this is your type of place.

    Advice to Management

    Quit firing your good reps....

    Pros

    The office has a very open feel to it, all Managers & Senior Managers are very approachable which helps all of us relatively newer reps. Strong training program and getting better with continued education throughout the first few months. Young, energetic culture makes coming to work for me feel like less of a hassle and more of an opportunity. Great software and LTL/TL rates makes our product an easy sell with customers. Very thankful to make the amount of money I do out of college while learning the industry.

    Cons

    From what I've read basically every con is simply an 'industry-issue' (ie long hours, dealing with trucker issues, etc.) Some of the other issues about 'shadiness' seem to be from frustrated ex-employees that likely did not perform up to the very basic expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the training and development of the employees and software. Exciting to be a part of such a fast-paced growth organization.

    Pros

    Very young company with plenty of potential to grow in the company, consistant hours and good pay. Very great entry level job.

    Cons

    Having just graduated from college, I went from waking up at noon to waking up at 5AM. Not a big con but I struggle in the mornings

    Pros

    Great opportunity for career advancement. Fast paced working environment in a very fast growing company. Competitive salary, commission and benefits package.

    Cons

    Work days can occasionally be long, although the work atmosphere is upbeat and positive. Currently, there is not a 401K or any other type of retirement plan.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage personal employee growth to align with the fast company growth.

    Pros

    A younger crowd that doesnt have a lot of other options works there. There are a handful of cute girls.

    Cons

    The company lures you in with a sales logistic specialist position that has a decent earning potential, but then switches with the only position available: carrier broker.

    Her you have to fend for the scrap deals that are made with truck drivers with no education.

    Advice to Management

    I kind of feel bad for you guys. Not a lot of places will hire you are stuck in the broker industry.

    Pros

    Recession-proof industry. Easy-going atmosphere. Management does not micro-manage. 6am to 3pm schedule is great.

    Cons

    Commission structure is very backwards... Newer agents that are far less profitable are making bigger commission checks than senior agents who have been on the floor for 2-3 years +.

    Advice to Management

    I deleted my great review of GlobalTranz and am replacing it with this one because of these two quotes directly from management: 1. "Drop it and be happy that you make what you make." and 2. "Well GTZ pays higher than any other 3PL in the industry."
