I have been working at Expeditors part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good environment, good teamwork for the most part, very friendly

Cons

bad management, no leadership, all play favoritism in order to move up or get a raise. Too many supervisors during the day and none at night so there is no leadership at night which means a lot of screwing around.

Advice to Management

Don't hire within the family and don't promote them for being your family member when you know very well they don't even deserve a job.

    I have been working at Expeditors full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good working enviornment, great opportunity to learn/train, flexible when needed.

    Cons

    Lack of mentorship from upper mgmt.

    Advice to Management

    Need more mentors. Wish upper management had assigned personnel to mentor. Since the company prides itself on promoting from within, it only makes sense that upper mgmt mentors the future generation.

    I have been working at Expeditors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Expeditors offers training for every aspect of the job expected. The people you work with get you through the day. Someone is always helpful and knowledgeable if you are unsure of what is expected at any given time.

    Cons

    Management implements new initiatives and expects the results to be instantaneous. They also have made it to their positions without ever having done the actual work of the people who work under them. It is very clear that they do not understand the magnitude of work. They continuously pile on work without asking if it is too much to handle. If you need overtime, you have to give a play-by-play of what you've done and why you need overtime and are reluctant to let you have it. You also need to let them know half way through the day if you need overtime, otherwise don't bother asking.

    Advice to Management

    Be more trusting of the employees. Understand that agents want to move up and give them the tools necessary to achieve their goals.
