    Great Place to Work

    Apr 5, 2022 - Customer Operations in Saint Louis, MO
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Management is very flexible. The environment is very laid back and relaxed. Of course, you will have stressful day but my overall day is pretty fun. Great people to work with and for. Best decision!

    Cons

    It will take some time to catch on, so don't rush the training process. You will get frustrated but it will all be worth it in the end.

    Aug 15, 2022 - Senior Carrier Sales Representative 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good Margin Opportunities in a fast paced environment. Great place to learn the full range of a sales driven business for someone new to sales.

    Cons

    No sustainable growth beyond the Senior Sales Rep role with fair pay. Commission is driven from very high volume of sales over 10+ hrs per day. Many Shipments have issues that are not timely solved leaving the sales rep to be under unhealthy pressure from un-professional carriers. Minimum holiday's off and calls all through the night.

    Great company if you want to work the same position and make the same amount of money for your whole life

    Jun 17, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - work from home - relaxed work environment - business model that is sustainable and easy to understand

    Cons

    - unless you want to be a manager, there is literally no room for growth. Which makes sense, I guess, but there is literally only a handful of manager positions. So you might be working the same role, making the same amount of money for years. - the base salary is kinda low, but they make up for it with a bonus. You get a decent bonus, but it gets taxed to death. So you are probably making a little less than you could somewhere else. - company does not invest in you professionally or personally. They do the occasional “employee appreciation day” free lunch, yoga on your lunch break, etc. But good luck getting a raise or getting them to reimburse you on a degree. - no raises that at at least keep up with inflation - unless you want to work in logistics the rest of your life, there is not a lot of room for growth or learning

    Cons

    -The training for this job was simply atrocious and follow up help is non existent -The sales side of things for this company is very shady, people who shouldn't be able to approve themselves for bids just to get it before someone else can get approved for it. -The environment is very unwelcoming overall, a lot of fratboy style talk
