I have been working at Mainfreight full-time (More than 3 years)
Company culture, startup mentality, strong teamwork. Strong freight forwarding network and partners. Promote from within.
Resistance to change and innovation, sales and pricing can be weak. Constant change to sales & commissions structures
Advice to Management
Mainfreight needs to have a clear identity for the US and work to build a cohesive network. Needs to start at the top and be clearly communicated through the ranks. Cross training is needed, lots of legacy employees stuck doing only what they "know how" to do versus wearing the hat the branch needs at any given time.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mainfreight (Flower Mound, TX) in April 2017.
I had two phone interviews with the company. The first was an initial screening about my character and the second interview was about the position. They then interviewed me in person at their Flower Mound location. I met with two gentlemen at a restaurant where they asked more questions about where I see myself in the future, etc. After this, we went to meet the people in the office and discuss more about the job. A few weeks later they emailed me about the job and decided not to hire anyone for the position. Also, they did not reimburse me for my travel expenses.
