    Pros

    low stress, decent work life balance, decent 401k plan.

    Cons

    ok place to start your career if you have a mentor who will show you the ropes in order to get the most and best experience possible.

    Hate the work culture, why do we have to wear a shirt and tie every day?

    Very few people at this company are motivated to do much work so things get done very slowly here.

    Advice to Management

    get with the times, your company culture sucks.

    Pros

    My manager makes it comfortable for me to be open about practically anything - salary, work, anything really. Its never an awkward conversation. Upper management is great. People here are nice and they really want you to learn.

    Cons

    Supervisors have a tendency to lie. So I don't trust anything I'm told any longer. Too many times I've gotten my hopes high for nothing. Pay was so low initially it was ridiculous, especially if you're living in the city.

    Advice to Management

    If you value your employees don't lie or cheat them. At least pay them what the market values them. And never lie! Lying is the one way ticket in losing those valuable employees.

    I worked at Expeditors full-time

    Pros

    Easy work. Same daily routine different work load but you get a heads up most times.

    Cons

    They treat temps like they are trash. Managers and supervisors are only for themselves. Expect you to finish huge workloads without the offer to help while you sit there all night long and they go home after their 8 hours. Only supports their full-time employees. Everybody there is two faced. Other facilities of this company run a lot better.

    Advice to Management

    Everything. Stop putting your customers and quarterly bonuses before your hard working employees. Also, remember that the temp employees play a huge role in your office success as well!!

    Pros

    Awesome people, they really make the job fun. Day to day tasks keep you busy, and you learn about an interesting field, something that most people don't think about

    Cons

    Pay sucks, extremely low. They over promise and under deliver. Dealing with customers who don't know what they're doing day in and day out takes a toll on your sanity. Learn the job on the fly, but if you mess up, it can be extremely costly for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better. Promote people who deserve to be promoted. Relax on the dress code, this isn't 1987, you can still be professional as business casual.
