This place is a joke
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 20, 2019
This place does not offer competitive pay and under pays its employees. Management here is a joke and you can’t further your career as your skills will be underutilized and you will not find this job rewarding or challenging. You’ll soon be leaving here feeling drained and like you’ve accomplished nothing.

They sell you the dream and make promises they do not follow through on.

The “bonus“ structure is horrible and they use it to low ball you a terrible salary, with promises of good payouts every quarter. FALSE.

This company pushes its employees to submit false votes to make it seem like they are “#1” in the 3PL industry.

Do not waste your time applying here. The place is frat house as management does little to nothing to keep order on the sales floor.

Meh
CLIENT SALES ACCOUNT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 20, 2019
10 days pto and hard to take even that. Sick days are always questioned and it’s miserable catching up after one day. It’s a fratty culture and the job is essentially 4 jobs in one. Great for experience and that’s it. Churn and burn

Fun place to work but no Career path
Client Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 8, 2019
No real career path. Cut Throat environment with fun co workers fun happy hours. Cold Calling is a must as with every sales job but job security is not great. Long days to succeed need to get in at 645am and stay past 5pm.

Great short term
Client Solutions Executive (Current Employee) –  Troy, MIJune 26, 2019
This was a great place to gain experience in the corporate world. Little to no advancement opportunities if you’re not working out of Chicago HQ. Make a splash when you first start working or management will begin to lose interest in your success. Working in the evening is an expectation if something goes wrong with one of your customers. Only the favorites enjoy perks such as working from home, flexible work hours and company laptops.
Pros
Paid happy hours on occasion, 1 hour lunch, little experience needed
Cons
Minimal advancement, favoritism, office drama

Accounts Receivable/Collections (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJune 22, 2019
Coworkers and my supervisor are great. The work isn't hard for the most part. Pull your report every 3 weeks so you can make your calls. Pretty Simple
Pros
Great team
Cons
We don't get the same perks (bonus or nice raise) like the rest of the company.

Difficult business, Echo's software was outdated
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJune 15, 2019
Echo has many positives but also many negatives. Their software is slow and outdated making it difficult and time consuming to really advance. Most of the good accounts are taken so it is difficult to get commission.

Worked in satelite office - Not great
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Denver, COJune 1, 2019
Worked in a satellite office and were were paid very little attention. Some employees from the corporate office were surprised to hear that an office existed at our location. Heard good things about the corporate office in Chicago, but my experience was less than desirable.

Everyday Cold Calls are draining
Regional Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Troy, MIMay 22, 2019
We were required to make 80 cold calls a day to see what new business we could steal from other 3PL freight companies. The people there as well as the casual dress code makes it a decent place to work.
Pros
Great people to work with
Cons
Long days do to the high volume cold calls, having business taken away from other 3PL's and trucking companies.

Relaxed
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 24, 2019
My typical day at work is the calm before the storm. Multitasking is essential to be successful. What I have learned is the logistic made simple philosophy. Management is management. The workplace culture is fun, relaxed , loud, powerful. Filling the gap of lack when it comes to poor communication from carrier and client. The most enjoyable part of this job is restoring back hope to our client by providing the best service. Providing drivers the opportunities to do what they love DRIVE. Being a support function to a company to make other businesses and drivers great!
Pros
Free Beer Friday
Cons
Management team

Lack of Organization & Communication

Pros
Casual, laid-back work environment

Carrier sales rep
Carrier Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Troy, MIFebruary 27, 2019
Being a carrier Sales rep you will work 50 hours a week 5 days a week 7-5 no lunch. It will take time to build your carrier sales base and it is very difficult to make commission. It is difficult to make commission because the commission structure is not in favor of the employee it is in favor of the employer.
Cons
no lunch breaks

Entry level sales
Client Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Troy, MIFebruary 16, 2019
The company is designed to have high turnover and hope to find a diamond in the rough with someone with connections to boost sales, really frustrating if you are just trying to make a career, a stepping stone job.
Pros
Food provided
Cons
Micro managed

Great company to enter the logistics industry.
Account Executive/Operations Specialist (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJanuary 30, 2019
Great company to work for as the #1 rated 3PL broker in the country. Work life balance is essentially amazing, as overtime was never required and I rarely worked from home.

Would recommend if you're interested in the logistics industry.

Hard Grind with Small Rewards
Carrier Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Woburn, MAJanuary 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.
Pros
Offices nation wide
Cons
Strictly Phone Sales
