Development Supervisor (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 6, 2018
Culture of customer service is very important and the people who work there take that seriously. Hires from within and trains for the job they need.The company has a no layoff policy which is good and bad. Good that job security is a priority but bad in that there are many layers of bureaucracy and management that inhibits decision making and progress.
Great company structure, core values and the benefits are great as well. I honestly do not believe the culture they try to instill in their employees is followed by management. I disagree with their training methods and work-life balance for the salary offered. There are many employees working there that want out because they are unhappy, that says a lot to me. I have worked for numerous companies in the past but feel it is not a good fit for me. Although thankful for a first-hand look into logistics, I am glad for the opportunities that were afforded during my time there and the effort from my peers that seemed to really care; yet I feel with my skill and background, I would be happier elsewhere.

Great place to work. I was there for about 3 years and it was surrounded by a good people and the work is very stressful but good enough to make your day go by really fast and i enjoyed every bit of it.

Well established company that allows growth within the company to all associates. Work atmosphere promoted a good work atmosphere which allowed for successful and exception work within the distribution business.
Business Analyst III (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 7, 2018
Everyday is a typical day: Must wear business professional and show up at the same time every day, attend meetings regularly, and leave at the same every day. It is a strong company culture which is not conducive to change. At the same time, direction changes often. The result is a lot of demoralizing throw-away work. No HR, so pay raises, promotions and bonuses are determined by feelings - who is liked - and not by facts. As a result, leadership ranks are stacked with MWM. Nothing blatantly misogynist, no one will call you toots and pat your butt, but if you are not one of the favored, expect to take notes, schedule meetings, and take unimportant project assignments.

The company really works hard to stay up to date with benefits package. Although this is great along with job security and advancement, long hours and a very demanding/ stressful industry can be very taxing.
Import/Export Coordinator (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 2, 2018
The work place is full of love and once you walk in you already feel like you’re part of the Expeditors family. They make sure you understand what you’re doing before theu throw something your way. Everyone around will make you feel like you belong and you can gain a lot of education only if you listen to what they’re trying to tell you.
Ocean Export Agent (Current Employee) – Hawthorne, CA – August 27, 2018
Expeditors has been a great company for my first full-time job. They have a lot of benefits to offer and provide a manageable income. It feels a bit on the lower side but maybe its because I'm in a higher cost of living area. Great career if you have a family and need the benefits to support everyone in your household. Very traditional company though and not a lot of autonomy in what you are able to do.
Export Manager -Operations (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – August 22, 2018
A typical day at work was going through your emails and then doing quotes for customers. You would then have to go on a sales call to acquire more accounts. Finally, going through your AP to make sure you general ledger accounts are in order.
Customs Import Agent (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – August 20, 2018
This company will stress you out and pay you half of what you should be paid. They refuse to hire the needed amount of employees and instead dump more and more work on your desk and still expect everything to get done in the same amount of time.
Customer Service Representative/Router (Former Employee) – Rancho Cucamonga, CA – July 31, 2018
We shipped rockport shoes to multiple vendors. We would contact all freights to schedule pick ups. The customer service postion would require a lot of fast pace and making sure we respond to all email in a timely matter.
