    Pros

    Great people to work with, temp controlled facility, and easy work.

    Cons

    Pay is way below standard for other jobs, they expect you to work all the time, even when you've already put in a lot of overtime. They will call you on your days off

    Advice to Management

    Atleast let people have their holidays.

    Pros

    XPO is a fast pace exciting business to be a part of. The leadership and employees have a winning mentality and strive to be the best in their respective arenas on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Victories are short lived and we focus on what did not go well, this is not entirely bad because we quite often do not make the same mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    We have to know when to push and when to praise.

    Pros

    Great people. Very collaborative environment. Results focused with outstanding results. Work hard everyday but go home knowing I made a difference.

    Cons

    It's an intense culture. If you thrive in a fast-paced, decision oriented and agile work environment, XPO is great. Not everyone can adapt to the expectations and that's ok.

    Advice to Management

    Unlock the potential of your leaders by driving decision making on less critical activities deeper into the organization
