Mission: In 2005, Echo began with one simple objective - to take the "complicated" out of transportation management. This is at the core of everything we do and our promise to you.
Founded in 2005, Echo has grown tremendously over the past 10 years. We are now a billion-dollar 3PL with over 30 locations and 2,800 employees. But how did we get where we are today? http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIk8A

Driven, energetic and motivated – the Echo team is made of like minded individuals with one common thread, an opportunity to jumpstart a career at a fast-growing company. We are a technology company in the transportation management and logistics industry with a growing client base and a dynamic atmosphere. If you’re ready for a fast-paced environment and are up for a challenge – Echo might be the place for you.
We are where we are today because of three things: our technology, our unwavering commitment
to service and our team of talented people.
Training takes multiple forms; we will ensure you have deep knowledge of the transportation industry in which we operate. Through ongoing training and opportunity to grow into management, we’re committed to helping you develop core skills for a long-term career as you contribute to our goal of simplifying transportation management.
At Echo, we value teamwork. Whether you play for one of our sports leagues or participate

You’ve heard the word “logistics” before, but what exactly does it mean? A third-party logistics provider (3PL) specializes in managing transportation, helping the movement of goods. Look around you. Every product you see, from the hoodie in your closet to the pizza in your freezer,
has spent some amount of time on a truck, ship, train, or plane. As the industry continues to grow, so does the opportunity to advance and develop a career. It’s rewarding, fast-paced, and necessary. Transportation logistics is a vital industry that will be around as long as there are goods to transport and people that need them.
Are you looking for a career that matters? Are you looking to make a difference and be part of something big? Are you looking for awesome training with inspiring people? Look into logistics. We’re looking for competitive, self-motivated and goal-oriented team players. If that’s how you see yourself, we’ll see you on Monday.
Below are some of the promises we make to our employees. We want to keep you happy, healthy, and engaged. Whether it's runny noses, running at the gym or running into your boss at happy hour -we want to make sure you are satisfied on every level!

Our core values, called The Echo Way, are our compass, our navigation system, our north star for how we serve our clients, partners and each other.
We know that success isn’t permanent and that complacency is the fastest way to become irrelevant. Because of that, we are always looking for a better way, a better solution, a better approach. Always asking the question “what is the best thing to do?” and being drawn to try solutions that haven’t’ been tried before. We look for reasons new ideas will work, rather than reasons they won’t. Sometimes we may fail, but that only inspires us to find new solutions.
Bring Your Own: Passion. Energy. Enthusiasm. Drive. We insist on making the most of each day, because we have the ultimate renewable energy source – passion. Combine the tools and environment with what each individual brings to the table and you go from aspiration to achievement
Integrity means expecting more from ourselves, even when no one is looking. It’s not just a corporate responsibility…it’s a personal one. We value being honest and transparent even when that means delivering bad news.
No one of us is as good as all of us. And because of that, we know that teamwork is the fuel that allows us to achieve results that could never have been achieved alone. So, we depend on each other, get each other’s back, and celebrate each other’s wins.
The journey from average to awesome begins with work ethic. It’s what keeps us pushing through when others simply give up. While our tenacity defines us... hustle is how we stop talking about ideas and actually make something happen. We do whatever we have to do, for however long, until we reach our goals because we know… that’s the only way to be extraordinary.
At Echo, we view technology as our top priority and the major catalyst to drive our business.
Members of our Technology department are encouraged to channel their creative sides and power innovative solutions for the logistics industry at a rapid and efficient rate.

With such a fast growing organization, process change is very normal. Ways of doing things in the past may no longer work, and it is often up to the employee to take the reigns and make those changes themselves. This of course is easier said than done, but this "con" can easily be a "pro" if looked at through the right lens.
I applied through other source. I interviewed at Echo Global Logistics.
The interview process was quick and painless. I was contacted to schedule a phone interview. The interview was set up for the following day, in person interview was completed in less than a week.
