    I have been working at Expeditors full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, affordable health insurance, unlimited learning material, job security, Christmas bonuses and Christmas party

    Cons

    Some employees are extremely underpaid, and it shows. Company will not give a "cost of living" raise to single people in order to make ends meet. I'd rather give up the benefits for better pay.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Expeditors full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The culture and the people you work with are incredible. It's like a family.

    Cons

    The formal dress code is a pain and the hours are non-negotiable. Nepotism runs rampant as everybody is married or sleeping with everybody else

    Advice to Management

    Pay your workers a reasonable amount for the work they do, and believe in them as they are only human.

    I worked at Expeditors full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Good location in downtown area, clean environment and men require business shirt and tie which is rare in Seattle. Pay and benefits are ok, not great.

    Cons

    Company culture such as hours work gets too micro managed. They don't even trust people working from home even if the work gets done. Some departments are managed by supervisors and managers that shouldn't be managing people. There's an important group that's being manage by three bunch of jerks in a suit and tie and unfortunately have this title for a long time. This company need a union to over watch these type of...

    Advice to Management

    Hire real good managers, not a bunch of jerks to manage people

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Expeditors full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    It has massive opportunities to dip your metaphorical toes in all sorts of cross department training programs. Not just classroom time, you get side by side training with pros who have brrn doing it forever

    Cons

    While there are a few female identified folks in key positions , this is still by far a boy's club. It is very difficult to move up if you are not a white cis male... not impossible but certainly an uphill battle

    I have been working at Expeditors full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Secure Medical, Dental, 401k, ESPP, PTO Promote from within

    Old style of management, not flexible. Micro management style for the company overall culture but depending on your manager's style.

    Be more flexible and adaptive to the environment.

    I have been working at Expeditors full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are great. I had a lot of support while learning, but wasn't micromanaged. so that was nice.

    Cons

    Can be long hours. You can't move up unless you work consistent overtime, so not a lot of work life balance unless you're complacent in the same position the whole time you're there.
