Good opportunity to challenge yourself and get better everyday
Account Executive (Current Employee) – Vienna, VA – July 21, 2015
Worldwide Express is a great opportunity for anyone trying to better and challenge themselves everyday. Excellent training. Days can be long but what sales position doesn't have long days. I have the opportunity to learn something new everyday from C-level executives about their business models, operations, and supply chain.
Employee (Current Employee) – United States – February 6, 2017
Great people to work with. Company is at a point where it is constantly growing. Along with the growth comes stricter corporate guidelines to follow, but that is to be expected. Overall the company is in a great place with great foreseeable growth. The benefits are alright, until they provide a matching 401K, I won't be satisfied in that aspect. However, they advise that something along those lines is in the works.
Flexible hours, management is helpful, company is growing
No 401K, difficult adjusting to the corporate structure
Key Account Manager & Account Executive (Former Employee) – Spokane, WA – February 8, 2017
The culture, leadership example, and management team was exceptional. I couldn't have asked for better a boss, a more energetic and fun team, and a greater learning experience. This franchise was incredible to work for!
Quarterly team trips, salary and commission structure, work schedule, freedom
Regional Support Executive (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – September 26, 2016
This is a privately owned company in which there is no positivity to be had. Very political place in which if you are not in a certain position there you are very much treated poorly. Upper management does not address appropriate work environment behavior by any means
there were some small treats employees benefited from
Managers cared about their employees health and did not overwork and compensated was above five stars.
Account Executive (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – August 10, 2016
I had an intensive week of training at the headquarters in Dallas, TX plus weekly conference calls to follow up and continue to learn. I drive door to door and made phone calls to try to get leads while keeping organized with leads, hot leads and accounts in the CRM. For each potential client I create a cost analysis using simulation models and tools given to me.
Account Manager (Current Employee) – Seal Beach, CA – June 29, 2016
A typical day at work entails phone calls, customer visits, meetings & canvasing. I spend most of my day in my car driving to existing and prospective clients.
I have gained a new perspective on business and interpersonal communication. I have developed a set of skills that can be applied to any job. I have learned confidence, well articulation, organization & the effects of compounding good habits over time.
I have learned to build strong relationships with my peers to work cohesively for the customers experience.
The hardest part of my job is the self discipline that is required.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the satisfaction I bring to my customers when I solve a problem or bring value to their needs.
Freight Coordinator / LTL Manager (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – June 4, 2016
This job was very appealing to a college graduate as they pride themselves on providing a fun atmosphere, alcohol, and a good time overall. However it was a very, very stressful job with long hours. Management was not very involved except where they thought necessary. No official training provided in any department. No official vacation time or sick days offered. When asked for vacation or sick days, they made you feel very guilty and sometimes you even had to work on vacation days or sick days.
UPS Customer Support Specalist/Inside Account Manager
Customer Support/Account Manager (Current Employee) – Fishers, IN – February 8, 2017
As a Customer Support Specialist my main responsibility was to provide our customer with live support with no 1-800 number to call for help with packages or deliveries. I also was responsible for tracking packages to make sure they arrived on time without damage, filed claims, scheduled pickups and deliveries, answer invoice inquiries, request credits or refunds. My manager is amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed this position but I needed to take a step to advance in career. The Inside Account Manager position was created to provide out smaller customer base with a single point of contact. My responsibilities entailed reaching out directly to the customer to check in and make sure they were happy with Worldwide, assist with any concerns they may have brought up during the phone call, uncover new business, pass creditable leads on to our sales team, updating customer with new options they may not have known about and lock them in with certain aspects of our business that make it easier on the customers day to day lives. I have the same manager in this position and I am extremely happy here. However, they are relocating out UPS Ops Team and out Freight Team to Dallas, TX and that's not an option for me at this time.
Busy days, long hours, stressful and tense environment. Great co workers but poor management. Constant change in job description. They refuse to hire enough people, forcing others to take on more responsibilities but no pay raises/bonuses. Employees are not appreciated.
DISTRICT SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – September 1, 2015
This was were I really learned what it meant to be a professional Sales, and ultimately, a Sales leader. Very aggressive cold-calling culture with high activity, high results expectations early and often. The training program, for both Sales and Management, was top notch. The Sales Management culture from the corporate office to the territory level was that of a culture that breads success. As a Sales leader, the best part of the job was be able to recruit all my team, be a component of their on-going sales training and seeing new reps grow and be successful in the WWEX environment.
Great place to work, professional but laid back atmosphere. A great place to begin a career. I started off a new division there, and in 1 year, I was responsible for 80% of the total revenue of the entire revenue for my franchises sales.
Director of Sales (Current Employee) – Washington DC Metro Area – October 2, 2015
Every day is different at Worldwide Express. I spend my time primarily out in the field meeting with current customers, new prospects, and converting new clients from our competitors services. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people in many different industries.
