    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere. Management is easy going, in freight center there is constant and noticeable growth. Freight center has given me the ample opportunity to learn all I can about the freight business and the job training is world-class.

    Cons

    Freight center is always looking to improve processes so this puts a lot of pressure on employees to be more flexible which happens to be a good thing.

    Advice to Management

    More communication, increase resources and create a goal tree so everyone knows the company's priorities.

    Pros

    Straightforward path to success. They explain the objectives of the job and give agents the tools to achieve those goals. A lot of complaints come from people unwilling or unable to perform the job at hand and all that is required to be successful at it. Sales is tough and there are those who just want a paycheck without much effort. We can't help those. Feedback is given regularly with instruction on how agents can improve their performance. A successful agent is a happy agent and we do our best to make sure our sales agents are both.

    Cons

    Perhaps be a little more lenient regarding attendance for agents with children. It will go a long way toward fostering the family environment if agents know they can deal with unexpected situations and not have them negatively impact their paychecks.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your sales force. The sales division makes the money for the company and should be maintained and supported above all others.

    I have been working at FreightCenter full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at Freightcenter for over 7 years-( from Receptionist to Operations Coordinator)-I have seen this company grow. FC has become more employee oriented, with employee events, employee recognition, and employee input groups. FC has assembled a great team of employees that enjoy working together with our company's success in mind. FC maintains a flexible work schedule that accomodates my outside family responsibilities and activities. FC encourages continued education and recognizes and acknowledges hard work. FC offers a variety of employment opportunities-we have a position for almost anyone-

    Cons

    Would like to see FC bring our 401k program back.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Continue striving to make FC a fun, family oriented, successful company!!

    Pros

    The company provides a great culture and is invested in the community. My positions has advanced a couple times so there is opportunity for talented individuals who work hard. Initial training is good

    Cons

    Sometimes you are stuck in the middle between the carrier and customer with no positive resolution

    Advice to Management

    Focus on grooming new employees after initial training. It is easy for them to get lost in the crowd and what can be a challenging industry.
