    Approves of CEO

    I worked at FTS International Express full-time

    Pros

    BRANCH MANAGER definitely takes time to teach you the process of how an import is done. Once she feels confident that you can do it on your own, you will be less supervised.

    Cons

    No opportunities for job advancements.

    I have been working at FTS International Express full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Reliable work and life balance. Owner/boss is quite considerate and understanding on time and schedule. All co-workers are very nice and helpful. Training is quite informal and duties for training are passed along to the person in the lowest rung. Quite unfair for the current employee and trainee.

    Cons

    No room for further personal growth or pay raise. Owner is quite cheap, must constantly exceed high expectations to be noticed, and even then still cant even get a raise. Benefits are standard for a small business. As for company values, owner will bud in on inter-office politics, but if he doesnt want to come off as a bad guy he will have the mean lady President from Houston do his dirty work for him. She is shrewd and speaks with no tact. Keeps morale low and honest hard-working people afraid of losing their job over the slightest of errors or missed time.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at FTS International Express full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A lot of good people work at this company.

    Cons

    Good old boy system of managment putting a lot of people in positions that they are not qualified for and paying little attention to their managment skills. Because of the system a lot of fifedoms exist. Office politics is huge and skills mean nothing.
