Competitive workplace with ample opportunities to grow
National Account Manager - LTL Services (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 10, 2016
I am coming up on my one-year anniversary working at Redwood Logistics, and I can truly say that it has been one of the best decisions and one of the more enjoyable experiences that I have had. Each work day has its own unique challenges, and they can be overwhelming at times, but there are resources here that are available to help you succeed. Being my first job out of college, I was expecting to work a corporate job in a cubicle, with days filled of meetings and slideshows. This couldn't be anywhere further from what we do at Redwood. The day-to-day interaction between employees, managers, and management from the top down is what makes Redwood unique. I am a customer facing rep, and you have to be sufficient in selling both internally and externally in order to succeed. Many of us share friendships outside of work, making it even more enjoyable to come to work on a daily basis. There is no glass ceiling, as management and ownership are always available if you need help or if you ever have any issues that need to be discussed. The most challenging part of the job is without a doubt the daily grind. If you are one who is looking for an 8:00-4:00 job, I would tell you to look elsewhere. There are days where you must be in at 6:30 in the morning and stay until 6:00 at night, but with the nature of the work that we do this is sometimes required.
Accessible management/ownership, positive work environment
Hours can be overwhelming at times
