    I worked at FreightWatch full-time

    Pros

    Beautiful environment and drive to work, as well as, great pay. There are a few people that are truly sincere.

    Cons

    They don't take enough time, and not patient enough, to train you longer than a few hours, completing shipments, on the computer. Companies normally give a week to learn multiple ways to complete tasks on the computer but not this one. If you have another job offer, you better take it unless you pick up on in-depth procedures quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time out to train and be patient with employees. Ones who pick up the fastest are not always the best employees.

    Pros

    A few co-workers are decent people.

    Cons

    Worst training period you are thrown into rush hour freeway traffic with minimal instructions with a stick shift (1st time driving) people literally walk out from the poor training environment within hours of their 1st day you ask for clearer successful instructions they will fire you within a month if you don't pick it up though the training is poor senior employees walk out daily at shift ends with headaches migraines and exhausted from the stressful overload turn over is extremely high as you "Might" get paper instructions on how to perform duties in your 2nd week "AVOID" this place at all costs good people should not be fired because you provide poor training!

    Advice to Management

    Create a proper training area to provide quality training and reduce the extremely high turn over thus increasing retention if not fire yourself for not managing properly there is more to management than just a title!

    I worked at FreightWatch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management cares about employees. Pretty good benefits and vacation time (15 days). There are enough different areas to try out different things if you want.

    Cons

    Lots of change, was acquired by a large company. The salary was low even for an entry level job. Some departments didn't have much direction.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to invest time and money in departments, invest in the right people. Sometimes a few quality people are better than many lower quality people.

    Pros

    The starting pay is decent, and the other reps are good to work with.

    Cons

    Too many unneccessary issues to deal with concerning customers' demands. The raises, when provided, are nothing to get excited about.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management really needs to learn to tell the customer, "NO!"
