Would try to avoid
Freight Broker (Current Employee) –  Olathe, KSJanuary 6, 2016
The basis for the company is good. Would not recommend the company as a whole. In general, way to many issues that they are putting on the employees to correct in an unattainable amount of time to correct bad decisions.

Demanding and fast paced but you are rewarded
Import Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 20, 2014
Managers expect employees to complete an almost insane amount of work in an 8 hour day with many employees putting in overtime on a daily basis so that deadlines are met. Mostly everything is time sensestive so this can be expected. However, the culture of the office is very laid back and the managers are very quick to praise employees for hard work and help out with deadlines. Employees are rewarded and acheivements do not go unnoticed. Coworkers were awesome.
Pros
catered lunches often
Cons
long days and deadlines

Export Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJanuary 29, 2013
Good company to work for, however the managing skills I was working under did not help me to advance my skills as necessary. Poor management and lack of training are my reasons for leaving.

Not a good place to work
Export Manager (Former Employee) –  ChicagoOctober 2, 2012
The branch manager is completely incompetent and ineffective as a manager. There is no real leadership or direction. It is very difficult to manage a team of people when your branch manager doesn't support your decisions and challenges your authority in front of your team. It was frustrating to manage a group of people that have a very negative attitude and who are uncooperative. There is a lot of gossip and very disorganized. High turnover.
Pros
nice office building and good benefits
Cons
incompetent managers. stressful environment

Forklift Driver (Current Employee) –  Tannersville, PAAugust 31, 2012
Superviors and Team Leads manage pretty well and they arent in your face about much. If prodictivity is down they let you know leave you alone. Love the hours which are currently 3 12 hour shifts which add up the 36 hours but 4 days off are nice! The benefits packages they have, which are expensive and not worth it to me.
