    I have been working at Unishippers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The ability to see financial gain based on your effort. You are able to see immediate growth based on the work you put in. The bonus, commission, and incentive schedule is extremely attractive. It's a real winning culture at Unishippers.

    Cons

    In Regards to the Shipping Consiltant Position: This is not a place for the weak hearted. If you are looking for a landing spot where you won't be graded on performance and growth then this is not a place for you. If you are looking to fade away in the background of a sea of employees with no desire or drive for success ..... this isn't for you. I wouldn't call that a negative though...but would caution people with low energy/drive to look elsewhere. Those type of people should avoid this challenge and go find a job pushing candy bars or staplers or something easy like that.

    Advice to Management

    Hmmm..... nothing really to add here at the moment.

    Corporate team: Maybe consider doubling the length of the Plaitnum trip and consider taking us to Aruba or St Marteen??? Scheduling the Platinum retreat to Cabo San Lucas, Cancun, etc has been great but im ready to start seeing more of best vacation spots on the planet.

    I have been working at Unishippers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked as a Sales Representative for 3 years before purchasing a franchise. Yes, this job is difficult - because it takes someone that is not lazy and is a go getter. Yes it can be frustrating, until you see your bank account deposits grow and grow. You can make a fantastic living with Unishippers and do great things for your family. If you aren't a coward quitter like those leaving bad reviews. If you have tiny heart syndrome - do not apply. Unishippers is for winners only!

    Cons

    The cons effect the lazy people who don't see the vision. You won't make money and you will lose your job. This is not a con. As I mentioned, not a place for tiny hearts or those with their hands out expecting free money.

    Advice to Management

    Keep helping us grow our business, support us, and we will grow this thing!

    I worked at Unishippers (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, fun office environment, supportive and social coworkers. very work, hard play hard attitude. Engaging and motivating bosses.

    Cons

    Office is in a little bit of a weird location, some of clients have a bad taste in their mouths because of mistakes the company made years and years ago. Hiring process was a little exhaustive.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any major advice, the management is great. HR is very friendly, your bosses and managers really do want you to succeed and provide lots of positive reinforcement.

    Pros

    Great management-wants you to be successful and gives you the tools and training.
    Unlimited growth potential. You get out what you put in.
    Long-term track record with new, fresh ideas to keep ahead of competitors
    Inside sales. You do not have to pay for your own leads.

    Cons

    Leads are not always the most qualified, but better than not getting leads at all.

    Advice to Management

    Growing fast, continue to train new hires to make sure service does not lag behind sales.

    Pros

    The pay was good for part-time employees. Additionally, employees received great exposure to the sales world. Management was good at coaching.

    Cons

    They didn't promote the right people within the firm. Often times, bonuses were delayed or missed completely. Day to day work was repetitive.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on promoting people with more promise rather than people who can fulfill a need in day one, but won't be able to grow moving forward.
