You could do worse but you could also do better
Service Center Coordinator (Former Employee), Richmond, VAJune 26, 2013
Pros: somewhat family oriented, great benefits, always found an excuse to eat and have a party
Cons: at times i felt like i was in an asylum
The company was what it was. It wasn't great it wasn't horrible. This is a smaller company that is growing but there is only so much growth potential for a freight forwarding company. They try to convince the employees the company is going to be the next FedEx or UPS but it is a bunch of bologna. Company has too many eggs invested in one basket. They – more... live in the moment and don't provide adequate training to employees. The little training there was was often retro active as opposed to proactive. In the interview they talked me up and talked about how much potential there was to move up and experience success and growth. But promotions were given to select few individuals. Management shows favoritism and it wasn't uncommon for a manager to bring in someone off the streets because they liked them personally. Company started off hiring college graduates but started lowering their standards and eventually started hiring temps to fill in and lowering their education standards. Some of the people were just downright rude and crude. A lot of backstabbing and office politics. Got to lick the crud off of management's shoes to get recognized or promoted. I could have saved myself from writing this entire review with two words. Office politics. You can get ahead if you do the right thing, say the right thing, know the right person, and are in the right place at the right time. – less

Work more, earn less.
Operations (Former Employee), Richmond, VAMarch 7, 2013
Pros: family environment, free lunches sometimes
Cons: long hours, poor compensation, favoritism
Sacrificed a lot of my life to this company but was never properly rewarded. Hiring process consists of bringing in temps and making them full-time. Tight knit group of managers that show strong favoritism towards certain employees. Managers hire family and friends and there is immediate level of comfort and no sense of urgency for them. They never – more... fire anyone they simply shuffle below average talent around to different positions. Forget about raises!

They do have some good top-level people working there and management is some of the brightest in the industry as far as transportation goes. – less

Young energetic company
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Richmond, VirginiaSeptember 20, 2012
Pros: free lunches on occasion
Cons: double standards for employees
This company is a good, young company and is growing everyday. They have a diverse age group of employees and experience. The upper management team, for the most part, are very easy to work for. The President of EFW is very approachable and friendly. Advancement opportunities are only offered to a chosen few. Salary increases are few and far between. – more... Depending on what department an associate is working in, there are double standards as it relates to following company rules, such as sick time, breaks, family leave, etc. There are worse places to work. – less

Starting up
Truckload Coordinator (Current Employee), Cherry Hill, NJJuly 19, 2012
This company is great for young super hungry professionals. It forces you to learn a lot quickly. They have excellent benefits, but expect a lot of time out of the employees.
