    Pros

    You are given the opportunity to learn about freight. You are always busy. The one olace that you can truely earn money with every call.

    Cons

    They should pay this position alot more than what they do.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Bear Transportation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They seem to really work with your schedule and will try and place you with a broker that will best suite you as well as the broker. Not just the broker. Commission was a plus and so were the hours that the company was open.

    Cons

    expediters only take 2% off of their sales. This seems extremely low seeing as how the expediters are the ones who normally cover the freight as well as follow it from pick up to drop off. For how much the company pulls in from the brokers alone (they only get 20-25% of their freight plus they have to pay their expediters commission out of theirs) it wouldn't hurt them to put a little more into their employees 401K.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Bear Transportation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Earning potential at Bear is limited only by one's effort and ability. Recent investments in organizational structure, training, and culture have made a positive impact on moral. The software and reporting tools to assist sales associates are a big help.

    Cons

    While the company offers framework of support, it is not a cakewalk. You will have earned your way if you succeed in this field.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your people and in the company's infrastructure

    Pros

    nice facility, updated software and phones, training, my manager is laid back, as long as you work hard and make money you won't have bosses breathing down your neck. Uncapped earning potential.

    Cons

    benefits aren't great, if you don't know about transportation-the industry is very cut throat and makes it hard to take vacation time, takes time to build business.

    Advice to Management

    It seems like the DM's are always in meetings- it would be nice to share with everyone what decisions you guys are making for the company.
