Fairly standard sales job, only you are selling other companies needs to truck drivers all over the nation. You will be asked to do things you don't believe are right to make more profit. Do them or leave.
Complete management of accounts, without being localized so you can not build relationships. The same customers you are trying to sell to you are also responsible for their account payments or lack thereof.
Operations Representative (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 4, 2017
As large as this company is, it feels like one HUGE family. The culture throughout the building is very comfortable and relaxed, People are friendly and playful, when they are not stressed with work. Depending on the account you are working on, there is much room to grow and advance within the company. You have both your really good management and some that lack leadership and team-building skills. The hardest part of the job is when there are bad weather conditions. People are typically very busy and stressed out. the most enjoyable part of the job is Friday company competitions, usually a 15 minute game among teams/ departments to let off some steam and a chance to win lunch for your entire team, as well as the company outings.

Money making machine of a company with sales reps pounding the phones all day in order to bring business in while the other half pounds the phones to move the business that had been brought in from the other sales reps. Commission based per load moved.
Operations Representative (Former Employee) – Eden Prairie, MN – April 25, 2017
Great company to work for and excellent work environment.
Very team-oriented, training was very smooth, the direction and your position is understood very clearly, if you had a question of upper management, they were very transparent and one of the best work environments I've ever been a part of!
Operation Coordinator (Former Employee) – Eden Prairie, MN – April 25, 2017
The people that are there tend to act a bit stuck up due to they have been there longer than you. They won't speak to you, the culture and self control is not there and I blame that on management for allowing this to appear okay behavior.
Account Manager (Current Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – April 24, 2017
CHR is a decent position to start with. It is full of young people, but does not have a lot of room for upward mobility. Each office is very decentralized and it is hard to move up within your own office.
