    I worked at Unishippers full-time

    Pros

    It's a sales job. Lots of upside with commissions. Some good people work there.

    Cons

    Horrible training. They invest almost nothing into training. They have a sales manager training you even though that person just knows how to sell and is very inexperienced in training new employees. There is a culture of hit your numbers or I'm gonna yell at you. The software they use appears to be a very low cost of free version. Computers are very outdated and contain old employee information on them. Basically a boiler...

    Advice to Management

    Hire actual trainers. Invest in employees for the long term. Actually build a positive culture instead of your boiler room antics.

      Pros

      Employees. Location. Decent pay. Perks.

      Cons

      No communication. Laking respect.

      Advice to Management

      Freight desk management needs a crash course in communication and how to respect their employees. It's gotten BAD. Morale is low and people are looking elsewhere for work. I recommend making serious changes. Listen to your employees. COMMUNICATE.
