    Fast Paced
    Fun Environment

    The training they provide is amazing. I love this job the most, because I learn something new almost everyday.

    Cons

    Fast paced. Is definitely a job that requires you to be mentally coherent.
    Some business systems are spread across so many different areas it's hard to be adaptive with solutions in a timely manner. Overall though, this company is amazing, and seams to improve by the day.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change a thing. The reason I love this company so much is because you put value into your employees, and actually listen. This keeps us loyal and wanting to improve, driving productivity, and efficiency.

    Pros

    If you are just graduation college its a great 1st job.
    Great training manager!!!

    Cons

    Senior Level Management doesn't have experience in sales. You will be told you are replaceable and you will be told "you will be printing money". Mostly you will be promised the world and they never follow through. No raises, no guidance, call count means more than bringing business in the door. Sr management is faking it until they are making it. The company doesnt care about you, they pretend to but at the end of the day you will be replaced by someone else. Do you want to work for a place they will take your book of business and then take if from you and give it to an EX manager? Just think about that because this will happen.
    The healthcare sucks!

    Advice to Management

    You should really bring sales managers that know what they are doing. Also, care more about your employees.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Don't micromanage, understand your employees need help and stop overworking them. You pride yourselves on the company culture, but majority of your employees are unhappy and underpaid. Stop taking advantage of your hardworking employees and playing favorites.

    Pros

    Managment and or HR should really stop writing these awesome reviews. Its horrible that you do this. Your employees hate being there. If you actually listened to your employees you would stop losing people who cared about the future of the company. Cons far outweigh the minimal pros

    Cons

    Lack of leadership and support from management. its worse than you think. Culture not at all what it used to be.

    Advice to Management

    listen to the struggles of your employees. Take action, dont sugar coat without actual resolution. Take a management training.

    Pros

    You will learn the industry very well. You can make good money but sometimes you have to be a shady person.

    Cons

    Some stress but that's normal. Managers always have to have the last word. They have you working on terrible freight that is underquoted and you know you are going to lose mok money on.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know yours employees as little more and be open to their advice. Sometimes they know more than you do.
