Prefer not to disclose (Former Employee) – Texas – October 22, 2017
If you like cold calling this place would work for you. However the management at this company leaves something to be desired. There is no structure and unfortunately experienced some of the most unethical and unprofessional treatment while being employed here. I would definitely not recommend working at this company to anyone.
Too much traffic, no break room, probably not even OSHA compliant
Logistics Account Executive (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – July 12, 2017
Book freight and track loads all day long. Senior members can take loads from you and on a narrow window to make goal/bonus its a cut throat work environment. Recruitment is great and after 5 months in, you a guppy in a shark pool.
Associate (Current Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – July 11, 2017
The company seems to not be sure what it wants to be. Goals are set for the sales people that say they want long term growth, but they do not take care of the people who work there to stay. There are some people who have been with the company for five years and longer. There are others that leave within the year. Benefits are ok, but seem weak for a company over 300 people. Vacation days are decent as they start from day one. There is no growth opportunities though if you are in a support role, and raises are not given unless you get promoted. It isn't a horrible place as the people who work there are good people, just the company is nothing to brag about.
No rules of engagement at all around their sales structure, the seniors as they call themselves have all the business. If you want to cold call all day long than this is a good place to work. The manager told me when he hired me it was cut throat and it is.
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – April 18, 2017
You are expected to be on call 24/7 without compensation above and beyond your annual salary. Health insurance is really high cost to employees. Hard to get actual time off because you are constantly on call with no backup.
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 7, 2017
If you are an industry professional with multiple years of experience reconsider an offer, this office is mostly for new graduates who are frankly still wet behind the ears and looking for the 'cut away' position from mommy and daddy. If you have a life outside of work, this is not the place for you. The leadership is a mockery of genuine industry representation and the cliquish and immature nature of the 'proposed' senior leadership is laughable. However, the only honest thing the position offered was the 'jump in' mentality which I think allows for a professional to soar, the only sad part about that is that you won't be able to gain the benefits of this soaring because the customer dispersion is handed off to the members of the clique. Overall, the lack of professionalism, poor leadership and dishonest business practices lead much to be desired regarding the company and this particular locale.
Office mates, customer relationships, genuine skill-set to be gained
lack of effective leadership, dishonest business practices, poor senior management selections
Truckloads (Current Employee) – Ocala, ft Myers – August 1, 2016
Bad company to work for, the HR dept. will not protect the employees but will hide and protect their managers, a lot of verbal abusers in Ocala truckload department The manager is very abusive and live to put employees down, transfer to FT Myers but the abuse continued
Account Executive (Current Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – May 20, 2016
I would not recommend working for this company. They do not have good work-life balance. They do not have good communication, there is very high turn over within all offices. There is constant conflict between managers. Managers abuse power, lack of productive leadership. Lack of overall company values. Did not have enough funds to provide employees with cups for coffee and basic necessities. Offices steal each others clients for personal gain. Not a good company for well-being to much cannibalism.
V.P. Of Operations West (Current Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – December 22, 2015
I am bless to have the opportunity to love what I do. I am able to contribute directly to the success of my company and the development of my team members. I enjoy working with all parties involved in the delivery of goods from point a to point b and feel extremely fulfilled once the job is completed on time.
Opportunities to learn every day, ability to interact with coworkers and strategic partners
Fast paced Freight Forwarder offering multiple services and modes in both the international and domestic arena.
Director of International Services (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – April 1, 2013
Daily responsibilities varied from day to day but most days included handling inquiries from multiple offices within our network ranging from quoting, routing, vendor issues, compliance with government regulations or destination questions regarding our overseas network. Other duties included but were not limited to accounting questions, software questions/queries, audits and business development.
During my time at R+L I was able to learn how to handle all aspects of the freight forwarding industry covering imports & exports, ocean and air as well as regulatory compliance and sales / business development.
Middle management was knowledgeable and very committed to doing what was needed to grow the company but also provide the level of customer service expected by our clients.
Biggest challenge was the flow of information from the field to/from upper management. Continuing to support the field with a healthy corporate message.
Providing the support and expertise the international team needed on a daily basis and building the relationships with our overseas partners developing new business opportunities.
