Freeman – Why Work For Us?

We're a global company of thinkers, designers and doers. 

Make It Personal℠

A crowd of thousands is an audience of one

Our world thrives on personal connections. And our business is driven by them. It’s our mission to make the world a smaller place by creating moments that matter.
We believe meaningful experiences have the power to evolve brands, to build relationships, and to inspire action. The more connections that are made, the more impactful every experience becomes. We put people at the center — clients, partners, and attendees — and make it personal℠ for everyone.

Problem Solvers by Design

Thinking like designers starts with putting people first

Everyone on our team is committed to making a world of difference. How do we do it? By thinking like designers. Great design begins with empathy. We learn what makes people tick. We’re curious about the world around us. Careful observation into what motivates people informs how we design experiences for our clients.

Past, Present & Future

A history of service with an eye towards innovation

Our legacy in logistics is both our rock-solid foundation and the springboard to our future. We've been committed to staying ahead of the curve for our entire history. The accelerated pace of change means we’re on the move now more than ever before. We infuse technology with tenacity, and 90 years later we’ve emerged as a global leader in our industry. We're enthusiastic about the future and committed to making the world better for our employees, our partners, our clients, and the communities we serve.

Calling big thinkers, go-getters, get-it-done problem solvers. 

We're looking for the best and brightest talent to innovate the future of brand experience.

Inspiring others, every day
A culture of learning, growing, and innovating

    I worked at Freeman full-time (Less than a year)


    Rewards employees more so than other companies. Took us to a rooftop Cubs game with food and drinks paid for, lots of employee appreciation activities.


    Hours can be long, as with any trade show job. Management has their favorites in every department and it is obvious.

    Advice to Management

    Newer employees to take over for the old timers who are stuck in their ways and not open to anyone working but their pals.

    Negative Experience


    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Freeman.


    I applied online and within a couple of days an Associate Recruiter reached out via e-mail to schedule a phone interview. He said he needed a couple of dates/times since he is in CST. I replied back and listed my availability in PST. We agreed on a date and time in PST. He made a mistake and wrote down the incorrect time zone. He e-mailed me asking if we could connect the following day and provided the time in PST not CST. Again, we agreed on a time and date in PST. He sent an e-mail stating "I did it again!" He acknowledged that again he listed the incorrect time zone, and proceeded to call me at a time that worked best for him and not the agreed upon time. I returned his call when I had time to speak (had other interviews scheduled) and now he won't return my call. It's unprofessional and he should have double checked his e-mails before sending them out. I shouldn't be snuffed because the recruiter kept writing the incorrect time zone. If candidates are supposed to be perfect and not make mistakes then recruiters should be held to the same standards.
