    Great working environment loaded with opportunity

    Customer Sales Representative (Current Employee) Lincolnwood, IL

    ProsGreat comradery with colleagues , career advancement opportunities with growing company, fast paced working environment helps the work day fly by, minutes from the city, and a very competitive compensation program.

    ConsNot in the city (10 - 15 commute MAX) and since it's so fast paced it may be very stressful at times.

    Great 3PL company on the rise

    Carrier Sales Representative (Current Employee) Lincolnwood, IL

    ProsTrek freight is a smaller 3PL company that's growing each day. It's a great time to get a job here too because there's more room for upward mobility.There's a lot of opportunity for success if you put in the hard work. Its a solid starting salary but you really make your money from your commissions. Its a very energetic youthful atmosphere here and you don't have to come to work in a suit and tie. The training program is very thorough. It definitely over-prepares you for the job. There are some office games too.

    ConsYou have to have the right work ethic and personality to work here. Its a very fast paced environment which can be chaotic at times. You must be a good communicator to succeed at this job because its always a team effort. You'll need to think fast on your feet and multitask all throughout the day. If you don't feel like your personality and work ethic align with these traits, it'll be hard for you to succeed here.

    If you can handle the nature of the business, there aren't many cons! Trek being a smaller 3PL has its disadvantages in terms of the amount of business we do versus the competition. However growing with the company in my opinion out weighs these disadvantages.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be nice if management planned more events outside the office. Whether its just hanging out, participating in a event for the community, or getting people involved in an intramural team. There should be a bigger push for our activity and involvement outside the office. Inside the office its excellent.

    Working at Trek Freight is an experience that you cannot get at most other companies.

    Some Guy (Current Employee) Lincolnwood, IL

    Pros•Open desks - No cubicles
    •Most other employees are cool and friendly
    •Owners/Management actually work just as hard or even harder than their employees and are open to suggestions
    •On site IT support guy who is quick to jump on any issues you have
    •There's a little "golf hole" that people like to bet on making shots, along with Pop-a-shot in one of the conference rooms.

    Cons•Working with an old and outdated database. It works, but it seriously needs an upgrade.
    •Temperatures in the office aren't consistent, but even on days when it's 0 and below outside, it's always nice and warm inside!
    •Some people refuse to refill the coffee after being the last one to use it.
