I have been working at Worldwide Express full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Company culture is that of a young, work hard-play hard crowd. Everyone in the company goes through the same trainings, and works through the ranks.

On of my favorite things is that every day is different with this job. One day you will be knocking on business doors to find prospects, the next you will be holding business meetings with CEO's and business owners (tell that to your newly graduated peers at your 5-year reunions and you are sure to impress!). With this career, you not only have room to improve yourself through excellent sales trainings and independent research, but you get to work within two niche areas of the industry and ultimately improve efficiency in businesses. This company gives you the opportunity to expand skill-set and knowledge of small-to-medium sized businesses by targeting what is a central factor of many businesses: logistics. People ask me all the time where I learned so much about business and the way businesses work...they are shocked when I tell them it is from an outside sales position.

Cons

This job is not for the easy or weak-minded. You endure long days, you must have the ability to overcome objections without becoming defeated, and you are constantly under a lot of pressure to do well against "competition" within the company (all of which you are well compensated for eventually)

Advice to Management

Continue to bring well-constructed trainings to the table. They are incredibly helpful to shed light on how other reps, managers, and account managers target their particular markets.

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

    Pros

    If you have a good work ethic and positive attitude, you will succeed with this company hands down. Great support network through corporate and other franchises. Training is solid.

    Cons

    This is not a job. It's a career. It will consume you and if you are just looking for a 'job', this will definitely not work out for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving the bus and we'll all be along for the ride.
