    Great benefits, great culture, strict standards that will easily help you become great at your position. Geared to make you not just a great worker but a great person with the culture they have instilled.

    Cons

    Low end when it comes to hourly pay. I'm pretty sure they can open up on giving most of their employees a raise without question.

    I worked at Expeditors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a great company, but, very shady to their employees. I worked there for over 10yrs & they are laying people off that work on the Schlumberger account ( since they are slowly loosing them as a customer ).

    Cons

    Very shady with their employees. They always say their employees are their #1 asset, but, its the managers bonuses thats really their priority.
