Shipping Coordinator (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – July 12, 2018
The company management was very poor the lost two huge accounts which caused layoffs. The company did not give me a rasie on my 6 months or after my first year as state in the company handbook. There was lack of direction from management on a daily basis.
Kept my location afloat with sheer desire and talent. Was paid $70K but deserved $110K for the amount of time and energy exerted. Pay was well below industry average and the owner and corporate frequently set everyone up for failure.
Look elsewhere for better pay and career advancement opportunities based in strong employee training and investment. Also, there were no benefits at all.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Forest Park, GA – May 1, 2018
I liked that I got along quickly with my co-workers. Also, I liked that overtime was not mandatory. The staff was nice but I felt could do better in some areas. The shift is the same everyday so it's easy to plan out my week.
Dispatch Manager (Current Employee) – Union City, CA – April 25, 2018
I have been with SEKO for over 18 years and I started out as a receptionist and graduated to a dispatched manager. I have not had a raise in over 5 years and I do not see any growth with this company. they are higher people with less experience and getting paid twice what I do and once they fail I have to come in and play clean up

Customer Service (Current Employee) – Itasca, IL – February 23, 2018
I would come in turn on computer. Log into email and start working right away started as switch board answering calls and transferring and then I moved to SEKOM which was more Customer Service tracking and tracking and dealing with agents. I also was trained for pick ups and dispatching. Then I worked in Domestic Support with entering and updating tariffs. Moved down to IT because Domestic Support was more like IT and fixed mistakes and things that were not working in the system
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Itasca, IL – January 17, 2018
SEKO has/had some great people working for both corporate and at the station levels. Corporate just could not control the stations well enough to take to the next level. Equity event changed the dynamics of the organization. Recent additions at the senior level management are viewed as a very positive move for the organization.
Domestic Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Union City, CA – January 11, 2018
I had a professional difference of opinion with the Sales VP and she used her position to have me fired. She was very unprofessional and required everyone follow her orders. I was told to misinform customers regarding orders status and if they questioned the information the VP told me she would deal with them.

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Liverpool, NY – November 20, 2017
Job was a warehouse environment, but never did you do just warehouse work. Manager was a micro-manager, and never let employees just do the job. They expected 12 hours of work in an 8 hour shift. Very disorganized, and confrontational, making the culture toxic. Tried to get 3 employees to cover 2 different warehouses at all times. Start one job, and then be moved to another one, and never finishing what you started. They also took on assembly work for other companies, and expected you to do that, as well as your normal job. Overall, not an enjoyable atmosphere, and I would not recommend.
