      Overall good company that could use some sales revamps

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -Great Benefits, 401k, Vacation, PTO -Reasonable Base Salary + good potential commission earnings -Nationwide career opportunities (can move up the ladder quickly if willing to move) -Stable long-term employment -Vast resources

      Cons

      Runs very lean which leaves little room to adapt to issues quickly operationally. This creates many calls and a lot of work for sales which they can little effect. It becomes challenging to sell if 90% of your time is addressing issues due to service... not all the time but often enough depending on your area and current labor challenges with drivers in 2021. From a sales standpoint, you are judged on salesforce effort numbers. (calls, proposals, emails, meetings) with no room for not hitting the number for any reason. This is regardless of whether you are actually performing new business or retention-wise. Creates an environment with lots of inaccurate data logging so upper management feels good while wasting thousands of hours of productivity throughout the field. Top performers will do well here but earnings can be dramatically limited by per deal commission caps. So if you are one of the best pushing for more all the time is self-defeating. The more you sell the more base work you'll have in this role. At the same time selling 100k deal may pay you the same as someone else who sells a 15k deal.
