I worked at Expeditors full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The stellar pro for Expeditors' employees is the no lay off policy and its health benefits. Those benefits should come in handy to the majority of the smokers.

Cons

Management. How many supervisors does one department need? Too many people just distributing work to others and not enough people doing actual work.
Communication. Mixed messages, no communication from closed door meetings. Expectations change without you knowing it then get blamed for not knowing...
Monthly branch meetings about the millions in revenue/profit yet desk level employees don't see a dime.
There is a lack of is a lack of integrity and honesty despite it being part of the cultural values.

Advice to Management

Value your employees -- Throw them a bone. Lots of people are very dissatisfied as shown from the anonymous survey recently. Clarify your performance review/raises and administer them consistently and timely. Is it performance or responsibility based?

    Pros

    Expeditors is a fortune 500 that Warren Buffet himself invests in. To make to to upper management, you might be mildly satisfied with a decent compensation. However, if you have a college degree, don't plan to stand out at an entry level from any one with simple a high school diploma.

    Cons

    Minimal pay, minimal days off (5 days prorated your first year of employment based on your start date- if this a sweat shop or modern american industry?). Huge gap between management and "workers" both culturally and financially. Feels extremely out dated in all principals related. Penny pinchers about everything. Don't expect to make a livable income for at least 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    look at your OT and hire more people.

    Pros

    full benefits which is nice, and great exposure to the logistics industry. Everyone there is nice and it's a great bunch of people to work with

    Cons

    The starting pay is low, and most times you are a temp to start the company so you don't get to enjoy the great benefits.
