    I worked at Trek Freight Services full-time (Less than a year)


    The people outside of management create a great culture within the company and make working at a freight brokerage a lot more manageable. It's easy to develop friendships with one another and the company throws fun events from time to time inside and outside of the office. Human resources plays a big role in their successful culture and is probably the strongest department Trek has in the building. It's the only reason why the company gets two stars instead of one.


    Management is very inexperienced in the industry. While I went through the training program, our class only learned the database and a general overview of how a freight brokerage works. There were no basic freight sales strategies taught to us. Management typically take a hands off approach in the training program and on the floor in the carrier sales groups, throwing new reps into the fire and hoping for the best. This of course leads to a very high turnover in the carrier sales department. The company also implements dishonest business practices that are looked down upon in the industry (ref. 20/20/20 rule). In a business that's built on relationships with other companies, Trek defaults to getting their loads covered on various online load boards half the time. These companies that work on the load boards typically lie and don't offer good service. It's encouraged to lie back to these companies just for an extra $20 or more. Doing this ruins Trek's image in the industry and makes them no better than the shady companies they claim to be morally above. The CEO's are very disconnected from a lot of the entry level employees. Even though they pride themselves as a small and personal company, they only see you as a name and a statistic.

    Advice to Management

    Higher level management: You need to be a resource for new employees. Help them grow and succeed with worthwhile advice and hands on learning. Don't just look at the monthly reports and shrug your shoulders when reps aren't performing up to the standard. The carrier sales side of Trek seems like a carousel of people coming and going. I'm sure you'd save a lot of money in training new people if you focused on building up the people you already have in the company.
