    I have been working at BlueGrace Logistics full-time

    Pros

    They hire cool and friendly individuals. You will love your coworkers.

    Cons

    Management is awful.
    Pay is terrible.
    The training team is joke.
    They hire outside instead of promoting within.
    Refuse to fire under preforming leaders, will instead layoff that leaders employees cause when all the employees under one leader are failing then it is the employees fault right??

    Advice to Management

    Being loud or funny does not make you good a leader.
    If you read any management article you will immediately start thinking to your self that your manager does everything backwards to the way it should be done.

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

    Pros

    - Comfortable Bluegrace swag
    - Beautiful Corporate Office
    - Clean (wipe down wednesdays)
    - Culture caters to 'millennials'

    Cons

    - The 'Embrace Chaos' core value is taken completely out of context and applied to everything
    - The new COO in transportation Mark Ford is awful. I really could go off on a tangent but won't. Normal change in management problems, not following through with promises made, bringing on employees that he used to work with and making them managers, telling new employees not to worry about booking loads and just to make sure that their call stats are up & then FIRING those same employees for not booking enough loads, etc. etc.
    - Managers want to be your friend and follow you on Snapchat until the end of the quarter comes around and all of a sudden they want to start acting like managers.
    - Playing favorites is a thing here
    - Clique up with the right people or get terminated for not being a 'culture fit'
    - If management likes you and you're not performing well in your job, they move you to another department - if not they terminate you at 5pm on a Friday
    - Work 7-5 M-F 10 hour shifts with 1 hour lunch break (That may be a pro for some people - but for me it was a con)

    Advice to Management

    - Freight Friend updates should be handled separately from booking loads
    - Managers should act like managers at all times & not only when it benefits them
    - Bobby the CEO = VERY COOL & always preaches about how much his employees mean to him: I don't think he is aware of how poorly the transportation department is being handled right now. Before the change in management, I loved working at Bluegrace. I was very optimistic about all the new changes & freight friend, however, the transition has been painful and unproductive for both the employees in that department and Bluegrace as a whole.

    I have been working at BlueGrace Logistics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    When you first start out their is a lot of sales training and logistics training. Overall it is a fun and competitive place to work, and most of the staff is very supportive.

    Cons

    You will see a lot of turnover, and your managers will monitor you heavily. It gets discouraging at times when you get so many rejections, but that is sales.

    Advice to Management

    My biggest advice to management is to be more adaptive to your training style. It gets very mundane at times.
