I have been working at Bear Transportation full-time

Pros

If you can survive you will learn a tremendous amount about the industry, but it will be all self taught through trail and error. Earning potential is high. There are good people here.

Cons

Leadership at the top is dismal, direction of the company is unclear, and advancement can only be made if you are friends with the owner of the company, who you will never meet. President and Directors are one recorded 'meeting' away from a lawsuit. If you can't stand being cursed at and insulted regularly, don't work here. The wrong people are in charge, and the most tenured management are not making the decisions anymore.

Advice to Management

Support your earners, Promote people who have stayed at your company, or they will leave.

    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

    I have been working at Bear Transportation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Bear is 30 plus years old and has developed some wonderful tools that allow their brokers to maximize their earning potential. The company supplies administrative help to brokers who generate more work than they can personally handle.

    Cons

    You eat what you kill - If you don't work you will not make any money. This is not a place to work if you are lazy or not motivated by money.

    Advice to Management

    stay the course
