Cramped Location. Broken promisses
Lead Air Export Agent (Supervisor) (Former Employee), Wood Dale, ILDecember 27, 2012
Pros: new forwarder to the international market. (opened worldwide 2007)
Cons: small operational office for the number of people, has a "clique-ish” attitude among workers that interferes with work flow, lots of “pass the buck” work going on, promotions within the company non-existent, you may be trained for a position only to realize you have been demoted to the lowest position
Agility will make a promise on a position you are hired for. Then like clockwork, they will change business model and change the organization on the branch level so you will be reassigned a new position lower than what you were hired for. The reason for this is they like to hire ONLY managers from other forwarders that they can steal away. They promise – more... promotions, and better pay, and then they will shake up the branch operations, so that the new hires, managers from other places, become grunt workers. Within their company on the branch level, they do not like to use the titles MANAGER, SUPERVISOR, or the like. This keeps them from being held to a conventional organizational chart and from getting sued. Jobs descriptions are kept in a grey area and it is known that the night shifts are the ones doing all the work, while those who work during the day are friends who are planning their private lives. If you end up on the night shift, then you are not part of the “clique”, and can be expected to be treated like a less of an employee. In 2007-2008, the parent company (PWC) in Kuwait was under fire from allegations of using “detained” workers from the Philippines in the Kuwait main HQ Hub. To be fair at the time, it seemed unlikely, but in hind sight being 20/20, well, maybe… The office facilities are poorly laid out, so to cater to those who want to sit near each other while isolating other who are not part of the office "clique" – less

The compensation is good, but the place is broke and too political
Director, Carrier Relations (Current Employee), Irvine, CASeptember 24, 2012
Despite doing quality work for three years, there is no job security or upward mobility for me. Instead of being promoted when my boss retired, I had to apply for this position with external candidates. I earned that position. No loyalty whatsoever and no soul. They have this Human Resources program that is supposed to be about improving your career, – more... but it is just a tool to break the employees down. Human Resources: just another joke and a waste of time and money. – less

I couldn't even get hired on permanent at the Houston location, they make it next to impossible. Company is cut throat, too cheap, horrible environment (physically and psychologically), people with nasty attitudes, no loyalty, no soul, as stated above. Human Resources = a joke, again as aforementioned. Non-professional organization and people. Clique-ish and I experienced some harrassment (will spare the details). It's too bad I need a job so badly; however, I feel much better since being "dismissed due to the assignment being ended". I can't think of one good thing to say except I had a job for a short time and it was located 16 miles from my residence, which is a good thing in the Houston area. Very bad experience indeed and won't forget it for a long time, if ever, unfortunately. I wouldn't recommend this horrible company to anyone unless you are a glutton for punishment.

AIR EXPORT AGENT (Current Employee), Bensenville, ILApril 6, 2012
Processed an average of 12 to 15 HAWB's a day during the week and processed about 30 to 40 HAWB's on saturday. Learned more about checking DG shipments when they come into the warehouse. The management at Agility is great. They have two managers at Agility in theair export group. One as the operations manager and the other as customer service manager – more... and their both great. The co-workers were really nice and freindly. they made you feel like your at home. The hardest part of that job was learing their accounting system. it seemed out of date. The best part of the job was the people I worked with. We all worked together to get the jobs done in a timely matter. – less
