    I worked at Priority Worldwide Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Priority holds some of the highest standards when it comes to employing the right people, in my experience, at least. And when they do, they make sure that their employees feel appreciated and welcome! Some of the best things about working at Priority I’d mention are: diverse culture, good pay, rewarding workspace, quality training. I truly enjoyed working there but life took me to NYC so I had to leave Los Angeles.

    Cons

    Gets a bit stressful sometimes but manageable

    I worked at Priority Worldwide Services for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great rapport with coworkers who are going through the same hell as you.

    Cons

    Has to be one of the most poorly managed companies I’ve ever set foot in. I spent four years seeing things fall apart at the seams, most people who work there are absolutely miserable. The top four heads of the company have all left in the last 3 months and more have a foot out the door. One thing I would say to the people walking in the door to interview, is “Run!” I know first hand the positive reviews on here are falsely published at the direct orders of the owners, so don’t let that throw you. Nowhere near a disgruntled employee as I was fortunate enough to leave on my own terms, but truly am putting this post out there as a warning those looking for an opportunity.

    I have been working at Priority Worldwide Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I like the ability to be a leader and make things happen. We work in a fast paced environment with some very interesting things always going on. Work is not dull, the company appreciates us and you can make a difference if you want to.

    Cons

    As a freight forwarder we are at the mercy of many 3rd party providers. When they don't perform and we have a service failure it can be stressful. This is the nature of the industry though.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my time with PWS. The commitment of the organization to workplace culture and overall values is something I've not seen at an employer before, especially in this industry. I think they did a good job trying to balance the stress of work with life. People are treated with respect and they care about their staff. I really enjoyed some of the special projects that the company was involved in during global natural disasters.

    Cons

    A bit stressful at times, but not excessive

    I worked at Priority Worldwide Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules can be obtained.

    Cons

    Chaotic work environment. The company culture is more like a hippie commune. If you expect management to provide support then you are in a rude awakening. Remote offices rely too much on the Hanover Maryland office to back them up for work loads and answering their calls after hours. The training culture needs vast Improvement. At the beginning of employment, you will sit for four to five weeks with little to no training. The music is so loud in the office it's like stepping into an Abercrombie & Fitch at the mall. If you think you will be able to concentrate between the phone's ringing and the very loud music, it is not possible.

    I have been working at Priority Worldwide Services full-time

    Pros

    This company strives to adhere to its mission statement. It is an evironmentally, socially conscious company. Overall the owners try to make the work environment enjoyable even with the high stress nature of the business. As with any employer there are stresses, but the company tries to destress employees with company outings, has a fitness area in their main facility, and a rock climbing wall. The best part of working at this job was the other employees, the challenging nature of 3PL, working with agents and customers around the world.

    Cons

    Turnover rates in some positions that I had to work with. Stress during deadlines.

    I worked at Priority Worldwide Services full-time

    Pros

    Decent healthcare programme with nice incentives. Friendly work environment amongst many co workers. Comfortable work stations and mostly clean spaces.

    Cons

    High rate of turnover in many departments. You will need to come into work at least an hour before and stay an hour afterwards in order to get your job done. Horrendous onboarding and training in place for new staff. You will be expected to learn your entire job, the many internal systems, and provide self-direction almost completely on your own. If you do not grasp your position after a month or so you will flounder, management will not help you, and you will eventually be terminated. Salaried employees must clock in and out like hourly. If you work over 40 hours a week you are not provided additional compensation or overtime, but if you leave 15 minutes outside of your scheduled shift you will be questioned and it will be docked from your paycheck. Termination of employees who do not perform well due to lack of training provided. Rather than promoting a learning environment and building on strengths of employees they would rather fire a person without a replacement, leaving others on the team to pick up the slack. The main phone line rings to ALL work stations, offices, and conference rooms. This creates an extremely noisy workplace and can be very distracting. The amount of phone calls you answer will be published for all to see and you are shamed if you don't stack up. They say this is for "customer experience" but this is a thinly veiled excuse for not wanting to pay the salary of an office admin. Mediocre salaries paid to a large majority of the staff, I've heard as low as $15,000 a year. The people who do the most work seem to be paid the least, and the only staff members making a salary to support a life in the very expensive BWI region are either directors, managers, or sales people.

    I worked at Priority Worldwide Services

    Pros

    You get to work with great people that know how to work and work hard. Can be fun, fast paced, but moral is usually high.

    Cons

    Work in extreme temperatures and can be hazerdous. Always need to remember safety. Shift work around the clock can be hard on families.
