I have been working at PLS Logistics Services full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

This is a wonderful opportunity to rise and grow in a team like environment. One of the few opportunities out there where you truly can name your own salary based on how hard you are willing to work and how committed you are to being successful. There is plenty of support and coaching available at all time you just have to take advantage! Too many perks and incentives to list, all in all its a fun and rewarding place to work.

Cons

There are expectations you must meet it takes a person truly committed to be successful but when you are you will be rewarded.

    Pros

    In this positition you can make as much money as the amount of work you want to put in. If you want put forth the effort and focus on building your own book of business you can control how much you make with no cap.

    Cons

    The job can be stressful at points but it depends on the book of business you have built for yourself. You also can have a lack of control sometimes with what happens but as long as you have good relationships with the people you work with you can control this.

    Pros

    Young environment, opportunity to learn a lot about logistics, but you end up teaching yourself.

    Cons

    EVERYTHING ELSE. The company is growing too fast..then they fire 20 people within 4 weeks and you are understaffed so bad to the point where you cannot do your job because there is no one there to answer the dumb phone. THEN they hire 20/month for about 6 months...weed out all the current employees who have garnered 30+ new customers each, redistribute those customers to favored account executives to grow their book of business...and have the new people start all over again. Out of 33 people from the August 2011 training class there are currently 5 people in the position we were hired for, 2 in other positions.

    Do not pay attention to the 5-star ratings on here, I am assuming it is the work of the super intelligent HR Department PLS has. Even the successful Account Executives at PLS hate their jobs and know they work for a BS company.

    Advice to Management

    Find a new job, you're bringing too many good people down with you.
