Executive Assistant/Office Manager (Former Employee), Brooklyn Park, MNJune 5, 2015
Pros: The environment
Cons: Benefits and room for growth
The work environment is great. The benefits and room for growth are terrible. Management isn't the greatest either - a lot of them don't know what they're doing.

Fun place to work, but limited compensation
ENTERPRISE OPERATIONS COORDINATOR (Current Employee), Chattanooga, TNApril 21, 2015
Pros: Free lunches, beer on Fridays, awesome company apparel
Cons: limited pay, limited promotions, rich get richer
The culture at this company is fantastic! They love their employees, but they do not pay top dollar in the industry. The base pay and commission rates are average, but could be much higher. The company is looking to go public in the near future and I believe that is affecting how aggressively they pay their employees, thus causing many to look for employment elsewhere.

Fun young company with great environment, just lack of growth and career path.
Accounts Payable/Billing Speclist (Current Employee), Johns Creek, GaMarch 11, 2015
Pros: culture, and bonds with fellow employees
Cons: career path, compensation
I review internal and external incidents to quality inspect and improve processes. Another responsibility that I do for the company is maintain and update all vendor files in all our systems, and also maintain and monitor our outsourcing employees for the accounting department. If available I train new employees as well and help continual training with current employees in the AP department. Last but not least I help the director prioritize new implementation, test, develop and insure optimization through out projects.

National Account Manager / Carrier Sales (Current Employee), ChicagoFebruary 24, 2015
Pros: awesome culture, amazing coworkers, beer after 4 on friday's
Cons: long hours including weekends, hard to make commission
Coyote pays a decent salary, however it seems they find ever more sneaky ways to make it as hard as possible to make any commission at all. They will work you long hours weekly (45-50) and require some weekends. The atmosphere, culture, and employee's are fantastic, however. It's an very youthful employee base. They have tap beer you can drink after 4pm on Friday's which was nice. Coyote is very good at finding the best fit for you as long as you are trying, express interest in the company and a want to change. Advancement is achievable through very hard work, success, and drinking the company cool-aid so to speak which sometimes seems difficult to rise to the top of a group of 15+. Over-all, Coyote is a great company to work for, however it is hard for me because I'm at a point where I need to find a way to work for myself.

Great for recent grads
Senior Business Development Associate (Current Employee), Chicago, ILSeptember 8, 2014
Coyote is a great place to work right after graduation, but not a great place to stay long term.

Long hours, high stress, less than favorable pay for work completed. Commission structure can be confusing and rather delayed. Industry itself is very draining and requires more many late nights and weekends. Work life balance can be an issue if you have a family.

Not recommended for established professionals or those with families.

National Account Manager (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJune 23, 2014
Pros: work atmosphere, co-workers, management that wants to see you succeed
Cons: long hours, skills from job are minimal, very little room for growth, redundancy
A typical day of work at Coyote consists of cold calling on logistics companies (carrier rep) to move freight or customers who have freight to be moved (customer rep). Once you begin to develop a relationship with these companies through multiple calls/sales, then you start to manage and maintain the relationship while also growing your book of business with new relationships.

I have learned much about the transportation industry, such as the various modes of transport and how the different times of the year have an effect on the logistics industry as a whole. I also have been able to improve my negotiation and sales techniques while working at Coyote. Overall the job teaches you to develop and maintain relationships, just like any other sales job the more people you talk to the more success you are likely to achieve.

The hardest part of the job would be the long hours, you work up to 10 hours a day, making it very hard to balance your work and life.

The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be the work atmosphere. Coyote really does feel like a family working together to achieve a greater good. There are exciting things happening constantly on the sales floor and it helps to make the long days more enjoyable.

Management at Coyote is very solid, every single manager in the company wants to see you do well and they make sure that you are taking the right steps to achieve success.

Motivated people full of energy in a fun workplace
National Account Manager (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJune 18, 2014
Pros: high energy, great people, young atmosphere
Cons: long work hours, disconnect between upper management and employees
Typical day at work involves cold calls and business to business calls in order to sell truck load freight contracts
Learned many sales tactics and the meaning of smile and dial. Worked in teams to sell all contracts allocated for each day.
Co-workers were great, each rep depends on the other to be able to go home for the day.
Hardest part of the job is the long hours and sitting in a chair all day.
Most enjoyable part of the job is making a sale that nets commission and being able to navigate each sale efficiently.

Operations Manager (Former Employee), Lake Forest, ILJune 9, 2014
Young, fast paced, and energetic office setting. Coyote taught me how to work long, hard hours. This was the job that taught me how to pick up the phone and make 100+ phone calls in a day. Great company.

Young energetic culture, tough place to enter at in mid career
Business Development Representative (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJanuary 27, 2014
Pros: casual atmosphere, management open to discussions
Cons: lack of professionalism goes to far a lot of times, low turnover results in log jam of middle managers and little room for advancement
Management is accessible and open to conversation. Co-workers are friendly and cooperative. Long hours and pay structure (commission) is not competitive in my opinion.
