I worked at Pacer Global Logistics
Pros – Great work environment, everyone is very friendly and helpful
Managers have a lot of trust in their employees, and therefore give them a lot of responsibility
Overall, everyone seems happy to come to work
I was never given a menial task. Everything that I did seemed to have an impact
Cons – Very hard industry for newcomers: seems sometimes like an "old boys" club when it comes to making connections with carriers.
Advice to Senior Management – Management was overall wonderful. I think that the only improvement would be to increase the pressure to make sales on a daily basis
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Pacer Global Logistics
Pros – Honestly, aside from the decent pay based on the state of the economy, I cannot think of any best reason to work for Pacer. The only reason would be that I am employed and it is a job.
Cons – Expected to work long hours - the mgt. does not have families, so they do not understand the concept of having a life outside of work. You can never get a straight answer to a problem. No one wants to give an answer as it is a point the finger and blame environment. NOBODY takes accountability for anything. The employees are not empowered to do anything but take phone calls from contract drivers and core carriers. They have on going equipment issues from capacity to equipment durability. This is a everyday problem. I have been in logistics a long time and have never seen anything like this. We are not allowed to have any contact with the customer what so ever, all customer contact has to go through our Dublin, OH call center. We strictly handle driver calls. Our drivers are mistreated and I cannot believe they are still driving for us. We run them all over town looking for mty equipment. They continuously have tire blowouts, flats, recap separation do to poorly maintained equipment. Pacer is afraid to educate it's customers, for they fear they will loose them.
Advice to Senior Management – Listen to your employees and empower them.
