    Pros

    Brilliant co-workers
    Amazing boss who DOESN'T MICROMANAGE (Very Rare These Days)
    Allow you follow passions & interests with job duties
    Fast Paced
    Fun Environment
    Fitness center | basketball court | doctor on site
    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

    Chill environment, flexible schedule, convenient location

    Cons

    High turn over rate, terrible pay, overworked, short staffed

    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.

    Pay was okay. Coworkers made the place tolerable.

    Cons

    Really, really bad management from top to bottom. CEO is garbage and cant be trusted to do the right thing for the employees...only himself.

    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.

    Pros

    Lots of different managers willing to help. They offer a lot of resources and heavily invest in the technology.

    Cons

    Don't have the best rates out there. No brick and mortar offices for agents. They already have lots of market share.

    Advice to Management

    Allow communication between different agents more seamless. Negotiate better tariffs. Offer an easier, one stop shop for all of training and information sharing.

    I have been working at GlobalTranz full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent base salary plus commissions anywhere from $175 and up into the thousands if you're lucky. On-site 24hr gym free to employees, on-site health clinic also free. Good health insurance, 401k and other benefits. Lots of changes happening, hopefully for the better with different acquisitions of other brokerages.

    Cons

    Call quotas, some micromanaging, when its good its good, other times its stressful and upper management is circling like hawks. Could get fired at anytime if you start to fall below quotas. Lots of profanity and very bro-ish atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Reschedule commission structure. Team commission base instead of individual commission base. A team working together with individual rewards is a hunger-games style environment where team members are competing against each other and not working together.
