High expectation, but the very lack of training and resources, would not recommend this place. Too much politics, sweet smiles at the front, but hide the knife behind the back.
Training is not existing and when you seek for help they will deliver an empty promise or to see you struggle and drown.
Lying and manipulate, move Management blindly away from the truth. There is so much favoritism, it isn't funny. If they helped if only favor or benefit to themselves, cannot be trusted. A job isn't bad, but people just make thing more difficult for other hard to accomplish, also mean they are set you up to be failed.
Take my advice and move on if you are looking to work here. The management lack the basics of management. The problem is the core is misguided and will never get on track. It is all about bonuses and most management are blinded by bonuses no matter what they need to do. I am surprised there is no undercover news program on these guys.
Not sufficient work available, and do not have enough orders for employing more workers. The management is great to work with but due to the abundance in the transportation companies has left expeditors with fewer customers.
Immediately you will get to know their corporate culture. It's a very professional working environment. You must wear business attire to work every day if you are okay with it. They have mandatory training hours that you must meet every year. The overall benefits are great. However, you may not be compensated fairly unless you produce the right result.
This job gave me so much stress it caused gastritis (peptic ulcer). Managment is a joke. If you're not their favorite, you might as well quit because if you do something wrong, not only will they send you a passive aggressive email, they will also hold it over your head forever. They lied to my face during the interview saying I'd have to work some weekends. LOL I worked every weekend. They also made me work every holiday and didnt even ask me if I could.

The management and training is horrid. I started a week after a new girl who received no training, and then she was the one who had to train me! Neither of us was given any resources or knew what was going on despite constant requests for assistance. The girl who trained me was yelled at in front of the whole office several times, taken off accounts and blamed for the problems. They then tried to put me in charge of their biggest account. Worried I would go through the same level of stress due to the lack of training and care, I left. Only stayed for 2 months. It was a very short commute, maybe 5 minutes. And the pay was low but decent for entry-level. Yet I still chose to leave due to the terrible management and stress.
Came in fully open for learning and learning lots. wanting to grow and expand my knowledge in order to advance
In one building for two weeks, and handed an account after one week, then moved to another where it is like pulling teeth to get information of have accounts handed over for full responsibility. Guess some don't understand you are only as good as ones you train in order for advancement. In an ISO world, although not all up to date and usable if needed on fly, there are always working instructions in order to run accounts in absences or emergencies, the more you can train someone to run unassisted, the better for you, no thing as job security in business anymore
