I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The people
Great Building
Beer on friday

Cons

1.) 35,000 salary non-negotiable
2.) expected make 80-100 cold calls per day
3.) Training program is horrible. Basically waste 3 months sitting in a classroom.
4.) You will absolutely get blown out of the water on any full truckload quote you do with someone. That's how you start making money on full truckload, not moving a single pallet for $30 gross profit.
5.) Your job can easily be eliminated since your the 3rd party. You have customers yelling at you for missed/drop times, and theirs nothing you can do about it.
6.) Extremely hard grow a book of business being a new person. Basically any company in the USA is in the database taken by some seasoned vet.
7.) Won't see decent bonus until your 3 or 4 year. The average rep last a year at the company. Makes sense.

Advice to Management

Honestly a college frat house. Knew plenty of people sleeping with each other after Thursday night softball games.

    Pros

    Great work environment, young workforce.
    Uncapped commission structure-room to make $$
    Side sales contests to add some money at the start
    Great training, I didn't know anything about freight when I started here.

    Cons

    Like any sales job, can be a grind in the beginning
    Biggest room for advancement outside of building a book of sales is in Chicago HQ

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, we're growing well!
