I learned a lot about being a courier, however the pay was not good at all. I was paid for most jobs $4 and some change and at the end of the week I made about $360. That doesn't cover the gas and wear and tear on my vehicle. I had numerous stops but the pay was just not good.
As long as you are meeting goals managers are very relaxed and kick back with you. The work load is heavy and it seems to only be getting worst. Changes are very common so you need to be ready to learn quickly.
Coyote is a wonderful place to work that focuses on individual productivity. While things may be constantly changing there is a communication around the office that makes sure everyone is informed and has everything they need to do their best.
A typical work day was to get the loads covered for the day. The hardest part of the day way just covering the hard loads with no margin. The most enjoyable was the people I worked with and relationships I gained.
If you want to work here, you had better like selling and cold calling or "warm calling." Most definitely a sales job where your worth is only seen by the sales and effort numbers you put up. If you are not producing to their liking, you will eventually be let go. Not the type of job and environment for everyone.
Flexible work hours but no job security. New Management so much of politics. No respect for the employees who has been working from long. They don't see the work what they have done, whoever talks more complaints more they will get benefits.
I learned valuable sales experience and how to handle customer service since I worked with major companies and trucking services. I also learned how to go and cold call on the product that we were trying to sell
Very collaborative and young work environment. Emphasis on teamwork exhausts employees and saps productivity, and doesn't provide recognition for superstar employers. The consequence of performing well is being awarded more work and unachievable goals.
This company is a joke. The pay is terrible and your advancement is based off pure luck. Everyone you call has pretty much already dealt with coyote and hates it so good luck gaining new business. After training they messed up my compensation and I was out $800 out of my own pocket
Benefits are really good, pay is ok, not bad, not great. Overall management is pretty good and they have a good culture. Job can be stressful with long hours and occasional after hours and weekend work.
Great job for someone looking to get work experience but not much room to grow in the company. You will work long hours but could make very good money. This job is not for everyone but you will learn a lot if you stick with it.
When I first arrived the interview was awesome. The atmosphere was diverse and fun. The training was more of getting to know the culture here at Coyote and the mere basics of what dispatching consist of. The trainer seemed to be an all around good hearted individual! Once I actually got placed on a team I moved to the “black” area downstairs where it’s mainly blacks. Within the first two weeks there was a fist fight involving three women! One of the women told lead she was uncomfortable might I add. The leaders are moody and appear to pick favorites. For example the entire team refuses to work until the Que is backed up. This is a domino effect. And unfortunately it’s left a horrible taste in my mouth. Great company but at this location the execution is poor! Ottley Location Atlanta.
The vision is there. It will eventually be great!
They need to learn balance. They can keep the culture. The atmosphere, the brand, and still be professional, and fair.
Coyote is a great company to start building your sales skills at. The workplace culture is advantageous for anyone entering the workforce. A typical day consisted of cold calls and building mutually beneficial relationships with shippers and carriers' throughout the continental US, Canada and Mexico.
