They should pay this position alot more than what they do.
I worked at Bear Transportation full-time (More than a year)
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.
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.

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

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.
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.
