    Expeditors is a great place to work as a newcomer in the business world. Tons of training, great benefits, focused on the work. I always tell people everyone should work at Expeditors before moving forward in any industry.

    I worked at Expeditors full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They say "hire for attitude, train for skill", so your co-workers are the nicest. Good intern and Management trainee programs. Good diversity. Benefits are great, nice office building downtown and a free transit pass.

    Cons

    Competent management has to quietly get things done, the rest lie, lie, lie about their performance numbers. Never get caught using the open door policy ... it sets you up for retaliation. No HR. No recourse. Don't talk to a mandatory reporter or you find yourself talking to Legal, it also makes you a prime target for retaliation. Pay is 20-40% below market unless you are favored. Bonuses are weapons; your manager will pocket it . Training programs are great, but not comprehensive ... personal development is on your dime and reimbursement is slow. Not a great place if you are already established in your career. Lots of micromanaging, nepotism, favoritism, and intrigue. Good diversity in the ranks but little in Management. CEO is the founder's son in law ... and this precedent is seen all the way down the ranks: It's not what you know but who you know, marry, or sleep with. Like a 90's version of Mad Men, complete with 90's technology and dress codes.

    Pros

    Great benefits, strong reputation in the industry, very good at what they do, high level of integrity and respect, managers work to develop and invest in their people. Overall a really great work environment with lots of opportunity.

    Cons

    With it being a large company, changes can take a long time to happen. Technology is behind the times. Sometimes they hire people too quickly just to fill the spot instead of waiting for the right person.

    I have been working at Expeditors full-time for more than 3 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.
