Great company, good people focused on success.
Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Sumner, WA – April 18, 2013
Typically the day starts at 7 AM. The branch manager is primarily a salesman and most of your time is spent with customers and prospects. Lots of phone, email and road time.
I learned that the Pacific Northwest market is not a big long haul truckload market, most capacity is used regionally and inbound over the road volumes are about one third of the outbound.
XTRA Lease has a 'success' culture, management is always ready and wiling to support you in finding ways to get business. Co-workers are professional and focused on the task of increasing business.
The most difficult part of the job is getting competitive customers to give you time and then try the service offering.
Most enjoyable part of the job is working with co-workers and management on setting goals and strategies to achieve and then having success.
