Keep the change in your pocket!!
Freight Broker (Current Employee) – Lenexa, KS – April 20, 2013
Most positions will require endless hours of being on the phone. You will make at least 100 outbound calls and receivie at least 100 inbound. Often times the outbound calls will be cold calls to people who dont want to talk to you about your super cheap freight/rates! At least four hours of talk time a day, 10 plus loads covered. Like changing the location of your office space 5,6,7 times a year?? FQ has plenty of that! You count can on at least one major change to the way business is conducted about every 60-90 days. These will often be complete overhauls, requiring you to look foolish to your customers, loose business, or just out right question the leadership abilities of FQ. The leadership is so bad that they will promote people who sleep at their desk, who wonder around all day, or just flat out accomplish very little. The company is so concerned with beating the competition, yet they overlook the best ways to do this. Moving to a new multimillion dollar building, promoting bad employees, poor leaders, and the constant change will only help sink this ship! Bottom line is FQ does need a major overhaul, but to the management, the way business is conducted, and keeping their good people!
decent benefits, close to home.
constant change, weak management, limited growth within in the company.
