    Pros

    Great benefits! Company car, phone, expense report etc. Supportive management team and great coworkers. Overall a pretty flexible job.

    Cons

    Goals are unrealistic, Saia's service is sub-par and usually a hard sell, tons of competition.

    Pros

    -It's great company that does everything it can to provide best in class service to it's customers. -Manageable territory size - Company Car - Good Salary - Great Training

    Cons

    Obviously, customers aren't going to call you to tell you how great you're doing. Once you bring the amount of business targeted you turn into a high paid customer service rep.

    Pros

    Great job, wonderful benefits and good people to work with.

    Cons

    Change in upper management ended my career earlier than I wanted. He was dismissed several months later. Wish I'd managed to play his way a little longer, I would liked to have retired with them.

    Advice to Management

    Be more careful in hiring of upper management, sometimes people lie about their experience. Not holding people accountable for damage was a big problem.
