    I have been working at Load Delivered Logistics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Been here for over a year and a half now and overall been a solid experience. I’ve seen a lot of opportunity and success, but this is definitely not for everyone. You will have to put in hard work and long days, but the outcome outshines the negatives.

    * good training before you jump in
    * small teams
    * young, lively culture
    * You run your own show
    * make money quickly

    Cons

    As with any company in the logistics industry, there are long days. But making money, free food, a gym, happy hours helps balance that stuff out. This is a sales-based job where you can potentially be making 100+ outbound calls per day – you get out what you put in. More calls = More relationships.

    Advice to Management

    keep up your ability to adjust to change

    I worked at Load Delivered Logistics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great functions out of the office. Nice people(outside of management) If you are an amazing sales person you can succeed here but it most likely will not last. They will change the pay on you. Very few make any money.

    Cons

    One of the worst places in the history of the world. DO NOT WORK HERE. 200-300 calls daily. What have you done for me lately attitude. Upper management has some talented people but everyone is deathly afraid of the CEO. The guy is a complete joke. Horrible reputation in and outside the office. I could go on here forever.

    Advice to Management

    FIRE THE CEO- CLOSE THE DOORS.

    Fun atmosphere and great group of people.

    Cons

    10+hour day / 50+ hour week. When you are not working you have to constantly be checking and responding to your email. Freight never sleeps.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees

    I worked at Load Delivered Logistics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    very fun atmosphere, composed mostly of adults ages 21-34. Fun extra curricular activities. base salary was good at first but when you realize all the hours and stress put into the job and the fact that you barely have any free time far outweighs the benefit of the salary

    Cons

    high stress/high anxiety environment. When it comes to employee retention, it is very churn and burn. Employees often get burned out as the average workweed is 50-60 hours a week with an added 5-10 hours more for after hours support. People are held accountable at times... which makes it frustrating when a problem arises that wasnt your fault to begin with but ends up being put on you in the end.

    Advice to Management

    spend more time to listen to employees, better compensate them for afterhours work because it takes away from the employees already extremely limited free time.

    Pros

    Great benefits and great company culture. Relaxed dress code and willing to invest in technology for their employees.

    Cons

    If you work after hours you don't get to take advantage of a lot of the perks they offer during normal business hours. Other than that it is a fun place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Less emails Between management and team members and more interaction with them.

    Pros

    Co workers were a close knit group for the most part. There really are no other pros. They try to act like the complimentary iPhone is going to change your life.

    Cons

    Horrible management including CEO who is ego maniac and has the temper tantrums of a pre schooler. Terrible pay and almost no chance at making commission due to unrealistic requirements.

    Owner is a trust fund baby who is vastly wealthy and doesn't care at all what happens to his employees. The same goes for the CEO who only makes suck up "friends" not workers that deserve it secure in their positions. If you're ok with 25k a year and no commission then perhaps this place is for you. Do not expect any upward mobility. The name of the game here is dishonesty. From lying to new employees about how much money they can earn to truckers who rely on loads. Employees are forced to lie to truckers about whatever is necessary to benefit the company; even if it means leaving them across the country with no re load after hauling one that no one else wants.

    The turnover rate is huge, micro management is the only management, and immature sexist ranting goes on to fit in with the young kids here. They'll tell you whatever you want to here to start working, and once you've been here a few days prepare for screaming and breaking things by the CEO if there are any slight problems.

    He cares more about lame articles and magazines and publicity he can get than anything else. They lose money and act like they're a power house. Go to command or echo global if this is the career you want or any other logistics firm for that matter.

    Long hours for horrible pay while being treated like expendable garbage is too much for anyone to stay here very long.

    STAY AWAY

    Advice to Management

    Grow up!

    Pros

    -A very young staff who are fun people to work with and are outgoing
    -Casual dress code
    -Nice office location
    -There is an opportunity for quick growth within the company and in theory an opportunity to make a lot of extra money. However as a new employee it will be very difficult and oftentimes will require a lot of time before the benefits start paying off for you.

    Cons

    -Pretty long hours (6:30-5:00) most days which tends to be a grind and you rarely if ever get out early and can be expected to stay later than 5 if there is "still work to be done"

    -For a company that "prides itself on efficiency and innovation" there seems to be a lack of that. The most effective form of communication they have found is sending hundreds of emails to you a day with varying importance, and while not impossible to manage it just adds another tedious element to the position. In addition you will also be responsible for spending a lot of your time calling drivers and dispatchers to confirm location (asking where they are) and delivery which doesn't take much however adds another spot where it could be much more efficient.

    -Frat Culture where you will receive an exorbitant amount of random fist bumps, high fives, and loud yelling and clapping on the floor about random things to get you pumped up about working. This may be a positive depending on who you are however.

    -There are numerous ways to get over a brick wall. At this job the solution is to bash your head repeatedly against said wall until you get through as opposed to learning to climb over the wall. So you will often grind through numerous unproductive phone calls in the sake of getting your numbers to the quantity they ask of you, and with time (a long time) you may establish a base of clients you can use and end up making more than the base salary, but you will find that it is very tough to ascertain what it is you are supposed to be looking for and even tougher to compete with the veterans who already know who to call and when. They will train you forever on the basics and then when it comes to the actual important part of booking loads they will maybe spend a minimal amount of time briefing you on that in general and just expect you to make constant calls.

    Advice to Management

    -This is actually a 2 star job and is an okay option if you are straight out of college, however the one star rating is to combat the 5 star reviews that seem like they were written at the behest of the HR department and fail to paint an accurate picture of employment.
