    I worked at Globaltranz full-time

    Pros

    Nothing good to say except they always have coffee and utensils in the break room.

    Cons

    This place is a joke. They are so kind to your face and say "if you need anything please let me know", but when you have a problem or need help you're sol, they will not help you out at all.

    Advice to Management

    Try harder and you'll actually keep employees.

    Pros

    Having your weekends off to de stress from the job

    Cons

    Working both on the sales floor and as a customer service representative in the Prescott valley office I have some words to say.
    If you work at the Phoenix office, your set. They treat their employees better down there, have more team involvement and team building in Phoenix.
    While the Prescott valley location is being more and more set up for failure. The CSR's work hard, looking over a team of 8-10 sales reps, booking, quoting, dispatching, routing, chasing down POD's and W&I's for all LTL freight in the PV office. The CSR's in the PV office deal with more LTL freight than the sales floor, some of the CSR's know the customers better than the sales reps do. Also only getting paid $12/$13 an hour to do all of this and hearing PHX CSR's get $16/ hr. Re structuring the sales floor pay and leaving the CSR's in the dust.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on growth, you have people at the PV office who have been there fore so long and deserve so much more from this company than they get!

    Pros

    You will not be micro-managed! Work hard, get your work done & you will be left alone. I'm so lucky to have such an amazing supervisor as a mentor.

    Cons

    I'm hopeful for professional advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with experience so we don't have a high turn over rate.

    Pros

    Upper management allows for creative problem solving. Hard work and a positive attitude pays off. Fun atmosphere. Positive environment

    Cons

    Big transitions need better communication and processes. Professionalism and kindness from outside agents should be a hard expectation set by executive level so that corporate employees aren't walking on eggshells.

    Advice to Management

    Increase communication between departments. Meetings between dept heads should be more consistent so company goals can be discussed and we can become a more solid team

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

    Pros

    Situated in a nice building and location with lots of restaurants nearby for lunch or happy hours. High energy atmosphere in the office.

    Cons

    This company mass hired 30-40 people monthly and fired dozens every month as well for not meeting quota. A handful of people are extremely successful and they always will be because of their reputation, favoritism, and client base. However, everyone else is disposable. I see on LinkedIn that several of my old co-workers are long gone or at competitor's. Management is honestly pretty shady.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to retain good employees. Provide actual leadership and training on the corporate side. Listen when your employees share their long term career path and help them get there! Don't hold it against them if they don't want to work at Globaltranz forever.
