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 – more... a family.

Not recommended for established professionals or those with families. – less

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 – more... 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. – less

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 – more... 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. – less

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.

Driver Services Rep (Former Employee), Alpharetta, GAAugust 9, 2013
Pros: free food and beer last friday of each month
Cons: management, favortism, ran as a frat house, and sometimes unprofessional.
This company is ran as a frat house. The culture of the company is pretty cool. Its a popularity contest at times and not about who does their job and who is dedicated. Its a fairly young company, employing young adults. The job itself was fairly easy, however management made it a lot harder then it had to be. For the most part the people are cool. – more... They supply beer and food on the last fridays of each month so over all its ok just stressful at times. – less

Strategic Travel Coordinator (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 16, 2013
Pros: supportive management, free lunches, young staff, quality benefits, new office space
Cons: constantly growing
I'm truly thankful I had the opportunity to work for this company. I was able to work directly with their executive team who are both down to earth and beyond knowledgeable.

Upon starting, the company was in the midst of re-branding through a third party company. I was a liaison between the third party company and the one I worked for. I learned first – more... hand how to develop various marketing materials that capture a companies essence and true message.

Following that, I saw a need within the Sales department to communicate on a platform regarding their company travel. Not only did I save the company money by ensuring only one Sales rep. traveled to a particular city each month, but reached out to other Sales reps. with customers in that area so that the rep. traveling could see customers on their co-workers behalf. In addition I planned, booked and supported travel accommodations for over 300 company travelers on a daily basis.

Although this was a great company to work for, I'm looking for a new challenge to utilize my ability to multi-task and quickly learn new things. – less
