Hard Grind with Small Rewards
Carrier Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Woburn, MA – January 26, 2019
With over 400 carriers sales reps in the company internal competition drives rates down so low that carriers will not take freight. For someone just starting out this can be incredible difficult to break through, hit your commission draw and make any kind of real money. While the average commission made on a load around $12-$30 dollars, the reality of controlling your income is slim. This is even more so when the market is slow and more carrier reps are brought in. Rates go down, commission goes down and the grind gets harder with few outcome. This being a relationship driven industry, you must be calling consistently and working on anything you can with a feverous mentality.
