Not a horrible company. I was there during a lot of changes so I do not know if it is the same layout. But depending on the manager its not a horrible job. Just a demanding culture.

Fast paced, casual work environment working with Freight truck and Inter-modal logistics.
Senior Office Administrator (Former Employee) –  Niles, ILMarch 28, 2014
Working with different levels of aggressive personalities, having tough skin to meet your deadlines, dispatching directions to drivers into warehouse facilities was usually a typical day. I've learned different components of a tractor, the difference between 48" and 53" trucks and OS&D claims. Most management and co workers who exemplified honest work ethic were available for assistance when needed in difficult situations.
Pros
in house gym, casual dress code and friday lunches provided by company!
Cons
quantity trumps quality... you're kind of viewed as just a "number".

No Job Security
National Carrier Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Niles, ILNovember 12, 2013
AFN has done a poor job balancing staffing needs between departments and a poor job projecting production. This has led to low amount of opportunity to grow and heavy downsizing in the company. The culture at the company quickly became unhappy, bitter between departments, and a poor sense of job security.
Cons
poor job security and work/life balance

Great job
Radio Technician (Former Employee) –  Italy, TXAugust 1, 2013
I would clock in go to my office that was assigned for me, I would put cd's in the computer that we had and that would be playing on the radio that day. Then go to the back to do commercials or be the DJ. I learned how to do everything to do with the radio. Management was good. Co workers was fun to be around. There really wasn't anything hard about the job. Enjoyable part was being in control of the music playing.
Pros
fee lunch
Cons
breaks anytime

Very well ran company
Procurement Representative (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 18, 2012
Overall this is a great company to work for if you do not have a family. There is no distiction between the begining and the end of the day. They expect you to be on call 24/7 365. Hours are extremely long typical is 0630 to 1800. There is very little guidance from management. If you are not a top producer right away they do not help guide you in anyway to make it to that next level.
Pros
fun place to work w/ a gym on site
Cons
