    I worked at RWI Transportation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Coworkers but there is so much tension everyone is suspicious of everything.

    Cons

    Everything. There is no direction and all the new hires are being lied to that they can make double their salary in some sort crazy commission structure. They will throw numbers but never give you any idea how to achieve them. They are having everyone sign non-competes for 2 year. This place is a sinking ship !!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES !!!. This new structure is a joke and everyone knows it. Start over and quit being so secretive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconize poor effort and/or quality of work .... and move faster to weed out the people who wont make it and dont care to work hard enough to succedd

    -Find a better way to incentivise Dispatchers who proform

    I worked at RWI Transportation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Starting salary and its a job...

    Cons

    97% turnover rate industry wide...what does that tell you? If your lucky enough to make it out of "training" (99% don't) you will get zero support with aging technology and ever increasing expectations. Everyone there except management is looking for another job. You may have one bad month and your gone. Except if your one of the select few that came over from TQL and are all buddies in their little circle. They and their buddies get special treatment...you won't. Got questions?...They will find a way to either brush you off or just confuse you even more, all while you give up your nights and weekends and pretty much anything else besides this job. They paint a pretty picture at first but realize when they say they will support you and give you second chances those are outright lies. Even their parent company, Castellini Group doesn't trust them enough to run hardly any of their freight!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in some REAL training and support even AFTER training.

    I have been working at RWI Transportation

    Pros

    There isn't a lot of micro managing. It's a smaller company so in 5-10 years there will be some room for advancement. Overall a good group of co-workers.

    Cons

    The pay is below average. The LSR's are paid a base salary + commission, but the commission is horrible! The dispatcher bonus program is poorly constructed and doesn't pay very much. There needs to be some serious restructuring in order for the company to grow and be successful. Overall morale is very low. Also, technology is extremely awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to figure out what direction they want to go in and stick with it. Many of know a great deal about transportation, but I'm not quite sure they understand how to run a succedsful brokerage.
