    Pros

    Sky is the limit for how much money you can make with these guys. They promote a lot from within and don't follow "typical" career paths. If you are a good performer and have the right skills they will move you up in the company. Really goofy fun environment, kinda like a frat house. Mostly young fresh college grads unmarried 20 somethings. Lots of partying and drinking. They are very generous with compensation based on performance. Good Benefits

    Cons

    All the pro's sound great right? This company obviously doing well and profitable but they could not be a more immature group of individuals. Lots and lots of drinking and partying. Not very family friendly company to work for if you care to go home everyday and not bring your stress with you. As I mentioned in the pro's they recruit young straight out of college guys and gals who are not very mature and this caters to their frat/party atmosphere at work. Many of these people it is there first job and they think it is just a big party. The management supports and engages in this behavior as well. This is a company that sends internal emails to call out and embarrass their employees for having a lower performance month. The owner of the company is known to send out emails to people berating them for their performance. If you have a great performing month they worship the ground you walk on and tell everyone else they need to do better. Really motivational huh!? If you care nothing about having a work life balance, good management, professional work environment, and just want to make a ton of money if you are driven this is a great place for you. The only thing these guys care about is money, they recruit so heavily because so many quit or get fired. Managers would not hesitate to be nice to your face and then berate the entire office over email just to keep up appearances to other offices and managers. I honestly made a decent amount of money working for NTG but it just wasn't worth all of the stress.

    Advice to Management

    Stop sending internal emails to embarrass your employees in front of the rest of the company, it is really unprofessional.

    Pros

    NTG embodies a work hard/play hard environment that not only builds a team of co-workers, but joins a group of friends.

    Cons

    The industry itself is a dog eat dog environment.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, had music playing in the office, and they loved going out for beer after work

    Cons

    This is entirely a sales job where you on on the phones most of the day making outbound calls. Either you make the right amount of sales or you are gone. Employees are expendable at Nolan Transportation.

    Advice to Management

    Try to create a more professional office environment and company culture where people don't feel like they have to suck up to be able to survive in the company.

    Pros

    Work environment is fun sometimes, high energy environment
    Free healthcare
    Commission structure
    Beer on Fridays, lunch if your office exceeds expectations by a large margin

    Cons

    Incredibly high pressure. Personalized emails from the CEO if your office is not performing to his expectations. Work/life balance is not considered as you need to take care of your customers 24/7. That means calls at 4am on Saturday morning. Company culture seems more like a frat house than a professional environment. Be ready to make cold calls all day for 2 months straight when you first start

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional. Emails threatening jobs when numbers are not being met does not help inspire your team.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, Great people, great pay. The atmosphere in the office is like no other! Everyone comes together as a team to get the job done whilst having a blast in the office. The work day fly's by and everyone here loves to be here.

    Cons

    In the beginning it is tough because it is a brand new industry unless you have worked someplace similar before. Also working over the weekend once in a while but at least you are not required to be in the office you can do your work from home/your smart phone

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
