    We have always maintained a casual environment at Echo, although this does not excuse inappropriate behavior in the workplace. We encourage you to reach out to your manager or HR business partner... More

    I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They claim to have a great culture. Don't fall for it. Zero job growth with long hours (7am to 5pm each day with 24hr email expectations) at zero overtime.

    Cons

    Where to start? Long days with low commissions. Rat race that feels like s real salary is always just out of reach. Absolutely no career growth, treat employees who've been around for a long time with no incentives to stay. No overtime pay and management won't pay you out the commissions you worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Pay overtime or stop making employees work 7-5. Lawsuit on hours waiting to happen.

    Pros

    The training provided at Echo is awesome, I felt prepared before I hit the floor and knew what was I talking about. I did not have a background in logistics, but the month of training helped me to understand the ins and outs of the industry. The people are probably one of the best things about this job! One week in to the job and I had already made so many new friends that are easy to work with and fun to be around. Echo does its best to make everyone here happy. Not only in our everyday work lives, but outside of work as well. They encourage us to volunteer and stay active, and host events through out the year to thank everyone for their hard work. Overall I am so happy to have found this company!

    Cons

    Logistics industry is a tough industry to be in
