Former employee who wishes she could have got the day shift
Pt Track and trace coordinator (Former Employee) – Preston, MD – October 13, 2015
Be prepared to be on the phone all night. Must have a lot of patience. Some coworkers seem friendly at first then you realize how immature and childish they are. The day shift gets all the rewards the night shift does not. Growing company the managers seem nice. If your immediate supervisor does not like you get more work then anybody else.
Logistics Sales is a tough job. You're in the business of transporting commodities. Either everybody needs you or nobody needs you, depending on what you're transporting and the time of the year. If everybody needs you, you're actually competing against a million of other people just like you who are calling them every day. So how do you differentiate? The trick to this job is to build relationships.
You'll find no better company to work for in the logistics industry. They take care of the employees and always have your back. The real question is if logistics is for you. If it is, go ahead and apply.
Great management, transparency, and you can learn a lot.
High learning curve at first, then it gets stagnant.
This job is very stressful and time consuming. If you have a family that demands time. This may not be the job, as this is a 24/7 job position. Some nights seem to not end and weekends are sometimes impossible to plan anything. The stress of the job with quotas to meet and issues that may arise make the job take its toll. The bonus program is great if you have the freight with money to move it other wise most do not see any type of bonus compensation.
