I was a hard worker and rarely missed work. I believe that management recognized this. Most of my co-workers were hard working and easy to work with. The hardest part of my job was meeting payroll deadlines when field employees did not handle their payroll responsibilities timely
I had a lot of fun working for this company. Do to their flexible hours I was able to attend school while working and allowing me the chance to work diverse shifts and always kept me in work.
I met a lot of good people and though the job was very enjoyable it wasn't always easy. There were days where I was faced with many obstacles but that is one of the many things I enjoyed about the job.
Most the time if there was a trailer that needed to be loading and no one else would touch it the supervisors would come to me and I did it gladly as I always enjoy doing the work that discourages others from going into it.

Account Executive (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – December 10, 2016
Sales Executive managing top accounts. Negotiating on a daily basis to provide a win win for both customer and company. Management provided all the resources needed to be successful. Teamwork was vital in the companies success. The hardest part of this job was being able to travel and meet daily face to face with customers due to the traffic congestion. However, the enjoyable part is landing good customers and building relationships.
Productive workplace with good, hard working people.
Dock Supervisor (Current Employee) – Maybrook, NY – February 1, 2016
Typical day requires, showing up ready to work hard in a fast paced environment for 12 hours. I have learned a great deal of management experience due to the amount of employees and the volume of freight we have to through daily as a team. Upper management is very knowledgeable of operations and guides us in any area that we are lacking. The hardest part of the job is the inconsistency in the industry. The most enjoyable part of the job for me is the people I work with and how we solve problems as a team.
W & I Coordinator (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – November 2, 2015
Coworkers were the best part of the job. Most willing to cooperate and work with you. I learned to Master the NMFC Tariffs. One of the hardest parts was to meet or exceed the inflated goals during the slow months.
Helping the shippers to understand the correct NMFC Item Numbers to use for their freight.
Upper management doesn't always support the front-line supervisors.

Supervisor (Former Employee) – Wheeling, IL – November 8, 2014
Once job learned typical day was good, I accomplished to learn a lot, most of the management weren't the go getters unless it was crunch time, all coworkers were cool , hardest part of job is coming into some one else's mess and you have to clean it up and also do your job. The enjoyable part was when we worked 7days on and 7 days off.
