Good place if you're just out of college
Client Sales Representative (Current Employee), Dallas, TXDecember 12, 2014
For about the first year, you'll only be making cold calls to build your book of business. If you don't like doing this, then this is not the job for you. However, it is a great place to work in that the people are great and happy hours and other work functions are a regular thing.

Kiss good bye to your personal life
Carrier Sales Representative (Former Employee), Chicago, ILDecember 1, 2014
Pros: young employees
Cons: fraternity type leadership, the # of hours worked per day is not healthy or sustainable.
Work, work, work....this company wants you to work ALL the time. We're talking M-F 7AM-5:30 PM and you'll be required to come in earlier than that on many occasions. Most reps eat lunch at their desk and you will have to work 1 Saturday each month. Working Xmas Eve and the day after Xmas is required. You are given 3 sick days to use all year. Want to – more... use your vacation time? Good luck getting it approved by your manager...This is a churn and burn factory. There are 5 reps remaining with the company from a training class of 22 and we started less than 1 year ago. – less

Fun place to work
Accounts Receivable Representative (Former Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 1, 2014
Pros: healthcare and good atmosphere to work in
Cons: mangers need to have a better relationship with employees
This company is fun but the managers are not monitored closely to ensure that their share of work is done. You will have a balance between work life and family and you get paid well

Cold calling all day long
Regional Account Manager (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 17, 2014
Pros: people
Cons: lots of cold calling
All I did was cold call. When I got home every day all I thought about was who I was going to cold call the next day. The people in my training group were awesome and everyone in the company is young and nice. Makes the cold calling a lot better.

Mediocre to poor
Sales (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJune 9, 2014
No upward mobility, compensation is VERY poor, and the benefits plan is weak at best. Management lies to you and it is difficult to take time off of work because of the nature of the industry. The pros are: you get to work with a ton of people your age. Ends there.

Great training/learning experience for entry level sales
Sales Consultant (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAApril 3, 2014
Pros: experience
Cons: made great friends with collegues
Will make close to 100 calls a day which you spent the time to generate these leads. A lot of work and little play, but if you are blessed to have the patience, discipline, and work ethic, you will surely succeed.

Young Enviroment/Good balance
Client Sales Executive (Former Employee), Troy, MIJanuary 23, 2014
Your day was pretty well scheduled for you--you know what is expected of you and you just need to execute.

Good ratio of sales professionals to managers.

The job would typically end at 5PM.

Terrible Place to Work
National Account Manager (Former Employee), Troy, MIJanuary 5, 2014
Pros: a lot of young people work there...
Cons: everything else....
Under paid and under valued. They churn and burn college grads even though you do not need a degree to do the work. They expect you to be there outside of the 8-5 hours and don't give you much of a choice. They give you a lot of unrealistic hope that you will make a lot of money but the market is very saturated and the 'product' that you are selling – more... is not up to par. You get a base salary of $35k and it is very hard to get to a point where you earn any sort of commission. I would only suggest this as a last resort. Finally, I will admit that this is a 'nice' review in comparison. – less

Revolving Door, Not Worth Your Time
Regional Account Manager (Former Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 16, 2013
Pros: training
Cons: compensation, support, culture, no room for career development
Unless you plan in having a long career in logistics, I wouldn't recommend working for Echo. Anyone who reviews this place and says the culture is "great" must be giving a fake review at the order of their boss. The culture is certainly lively, but it is very misogynistic and somewhat predatorial. Despite being a middle-man freight forwarder, mid and – more... upper management acts like they are on Wall Street.

The compensation is a joke, and the recruiters will often mislead you in interviews to give you the sense it will be easy to blow out your numbers. It is not.

The only benefit of working at Echo is their extensive month-long training program when you are first hired. A couple folks in my class quit immediately after the training, and I wished I had followed their lead.

All in all, if you're fresh out of college and you need a steady $2500/mo draw check, then by all means check out Echo. If you like gawking at women and making lewd comments for 8 hours, check out Echo. If you really enjoyed your time in the high school cafeteria, check out Echo. If you live in the real world and want to start a career, this place is not for you. – less
