Account Executive (Freight Broker) (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 9, 2016
Typical work day starts right when you get in the office at 7am. Be ready to work pretty much all day long, but it will keep you busy so they days pass by very quickly.

Good opportunity for an entry level job.
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Cranberry twp, paAugust 9, 2016
Great work environment, friendly co workers. The freight broker market is saturated with hundreds of companies like PLS although PLS is great experience for an entry level sales job. Do not regret working there one bit.

There is a lot of opportunity at PLS Logistics. However, the management style among the majority of leaders is hands-off. If you are an independent, driven, and competent worker you can find success here.

busy and very productive and high in customer service.
Manager (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CA 90015July 27, 2016
Most days are very busy which makes your day go by fast. I have learned that building relationships with customers is what drives our business to success. The management team are great. Very friendly co-workers. Hardest part of the job is when you get complicated customers. I enjoy meeting and getting know my customers and very diverse.

It was a good experience
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 12, 2016
The day to day was pushing the title loans& courtesy calls. I enjoyed working with co workers and upper management. The worst part was taking advantage of people on fixed incomes. I learned how the loaning industry worked
Pros
Good work environment
Cons
Sales quota

No Job Security or long term growth
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 7, 2016
You start off as an Account Executive trainee for 3 months. You will get assigned a "mentor" during your trainee period and help them with their day to day tasks. After 3 months you become an Account executive and try to build your own book of business, cold calling customers from a "prospect list" you prepare during your first 3 months. You have to hit certain benchmarks in order to continue with the job or they have to let you go. You also have to hit your daily target of phone calls and hours on the phone. There is an 90% turnover rate and this is not a career job by any means. Co-workers we're nice but, it is a cut throat environment.
Pros
Laid back environment and dress code.
Cons
No long term growth, benefits, incentives.

Good job to have if you need something right after college
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAJune 30, 2016
There is no job security, room for advancement, or management. If you want to make 80+ cold calls every day for 2 years you have a solid chance of making 43k a year and struggle to make more. There are better companies out there that offer better benefits, pay, and sales training.

Good First Job for experience. Horrible Management
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJune 21, 2016
No Job Security- if you don't hit your number once you will be let go.

They will cut people with potential because other Larger Account Executive are struggling and they need to save money. They do this be have no loyalty to the employees that work hard for them.

Management struggles to train employees, literally no sales training what so ever.

Management will not help you if you are struggling. Management will also steal leads if it personally makes them more money.

Cut throat, not a single ounce of teamwork in the organization
Pros
Good Learning Experience of where not to work, 3PL have very high turnover
Cons
Long Hours, No Security in your Job.

If you like inside sales-apply here
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAJune 16, 2016
Very fast paced job, lots of cold calling and lots of negative response from prospects. The industry is very saturated with 3PL's and businesses get about 5-10 cold calls from other logistic companies daily. It is a very competitive industry, and if the current prospect does give you a chance, the rates PLS provide are competitive with FTL, LTL rates are non comparable with other larger 3PLs. Base salary is not the best, and the goals are tough to reach with out getting accounts handed to you. The business model of 3PLs are a bit of a pyramid scheme, new guys call out sign a few accounts, then get let go while the long term guys manage the new ones with out having to actually sell.

A trap for the uninformed
Account Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAJune 14, 2016
PLS basically lives off the corpses of fresh collage students and other foolish people who walk through the door see a "work hard play hard" attitude on the door. They will hire you basically if you have a pulse because they don't really care if you don't make their silly quota's at all if you win a few customers and they get passed to the big fish in the office when you leave that's all they care about.

They are a giant shell corp, that will likely sell out within the year, they even just recently dropped wages across the board by 2k. oh and by the way even if you somehow got to the point of making full commission you only get 20%. 20%!!!!! and with the way they have it set up that means you make right around $42000 a year, oh and just to maintain a book of business like that you are so swamped there is zero work life balance.


if your fresh out of collage and want to slog away for 6 months to get you on your feet go ahead, but after those 6 months GET OUT.
Pros
Learn some things then leave
Cons
not much their policies are insulting as soon as you start to look elsewhere

Fun Workplace that lacks in Professionalism & Employee Recognition
Account Executive - Logistics & Brokerage Division (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMay 31, 2016
It was a decent place to work at with a lot of motivation when you first start, but the insanely high turnover has a huge impact on overall morale.

Great to work here if sales AND logistics are your thing
Account Executive Trainee (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAApril 30, 2016
Really supportive management, they are experiencing some hiccups but overall they want to see you succeed. Job security is spotty, they will fire you if you do not meet your numbers but will do all they can to make sure you do. Comes down to how successful you want to be.
Pros
Friendly managers
Cons
Long days, stressful work, always fixing issues in logistics, terrible training process

The hardest part of the job was getting a bid on another job to stay working.The most enjoyable part of the job was doing something different every day.
