    I worked at FREIGHTQUOTE full-time

    Pros

    Sales driven work environment and competitive. If you want to make a lot of money and network with different people from around the world this is a great opportunity. Transportation is a great industry to be in and it provides a lot of stability. The company culture was amazing and I enjoyed working with my coworkers. Management is easily accessible and always willing to help. You must make a lot of cold calls in order to be successful. Hard work pays off and the company takes pride in hiring great people!

    Cons

    The dress code needs to be reinforced - some employees would not be dressed appropriately.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FREIGHTQUOTE (Minneapolis, MN) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Polite phone interview questions but when I asked questions prior to setting up a face to face interview, the person I was working with all but disappeared. These were not difficult questions, but I wanted to know whether or not the account execs were expected to work holidays and weekends regularly and if there was a fee paid BEFORE earning commissions. Asking that made the process stop entirely.
