We welcomed 9 students from the University of Illinois to our Chicago headquarters last week and taught them how to live the #freightlife! They toured the office, met a few members of the executive team, and shadowed some of our employees. They ended the day with a "speed-dating" style Q&A session with Echo's Illinois Alumn. It was fun to encourage college students to start thinking about their careers and help them explore the growing logistics industry!
Take a look at the future of logistics... take a look at Echo.
Driven, energetic and motivated – the Echo team is made of like minded individuals with one common thread, an opportunity to jumpstart a career at a fast-growing company. We are a technology company in the transportation management and logistics industry with a growing client base and a dynamic atmosphere. If you’re ready for a fast-paced environment and are up for a challenge – Echo might be the place for you.

You’ve heard the word “logistics” before, but what exactly does it mean? A third-party logistics provider (3PL) specializes in managing transportation, helping the movement of goods. Look around you. Every product you see, from the hoodie in your closet to the pizza in your freezer,
has spent some amount of time on a truck, ship, train, or plane. As the industry continues to grow, so does the opportunity to advance and develop a career. It’s rewarding, fast-paced, and necessary. Transportation logistics is a vital industry that will be around as long as there are goods to transport and people that need them.
Are you looking for a career that matters? Are you looking to make a difference and be part of something big? Are you looking for awesome training with inspiring people? Look into logistics. We’re looking for competitive, self-motivated and goal-oriented team players. If that’s how you see yourself, we’ll see you on Monday.

The Echo Way is more than just words.
Our core values, called The Echo Way, are our compass, our navigation system, our north star for how we serve our clients, partners and each other.
Better is the only option
We know that success isn’t permanent and that complacency is the fastest way to become irrelevant. Because of that, we are always looking for a better way, a better solution, a better approach. Always asking the question “what is the best thing to do?” and being drawn to try solutions that haven’t’ been tried before. We look for reasons new ideas will work, rather than reasons they won’t. Sometimes we may fail, but that only inspires us to find new solutions.
Bring Your Own: Passion. Energy. Enthusiasm. Drive. We insist on making the most of each day, because we have the ultimate renewable energy source – passion. Combine the tools and environment with what each individual brings to the table and you go from aspiration to achievement
Do what’s right
Integrity means expecting more from ourselves, even when no one is looking. It’s not just a corporate responsibility…it’s a personal one. We value being honest and transparent even when that means delivering bad news.
Carry the load together
No one of us is as good as all of us. And because of that, we know that teamwork is the fuel that allows us to achieve results that could never have been achieved alone. So, we depend on each other, get each other’s back, and celebrate each other’s wins.
Work hard and hustle
The journey from average to awesome begins with work ethic. It’s what keeps us pushing through when others simply give up. While our tenacity defines us... hustle is how we stop talking about ideas and actually make something happen. We do whatever we have to do, for however long, until we reach our goals because we know… that’s the only way to be extraordinary.
We are committed to helping our employees achieve their career goals.
Every employee is provided with the knowledge and resources to grow and we invest time and effort to improve the quality of not just the work day, but the career development of all Echo employees.
We are committed to continuous learning. Echo employees learn everything from the fundamentals of the logistics and transportation industry to business and management skills. Expert speakers are invited to offer best practices and their expertise on specific business functions or industries. Skills are honed in training sessions focused on topics ranging from client service to teamwork and account management.
Echo is committed to the career development of all employees and leaders are charged with helping employees set goals, achieve those goals and continue to strive for progress.
New sales professionals receive an intensive training course covering industry specifics as well as sales function, pitch and lead generation. Training groups are walked through the Echo value proposition, industry knowledge and the tools Echo uses to provide a valuable service to our clients. At the end of our initial training, you will have the tools to be successful and build your own book of business.
Echo is committed to continuous training of its account management teams. Each employee spends roughly a week learning the Echo tools as well as our processes for accounting and finance. At Echo you are not thrown to the wolves, we arm our employees thoroughly with a full skill set that will allow you to succeed.

I applied in-person – interviewed at Echo Global Logistics.Interview Details
Interviewing process was very easy. First there is the phone interview which is pretty basic and after that they'll invite you to one of their offices to shadow a current sales person for about a half hour. After the shadow, you'll be interviewed by someone in HR and in my interview I was asked questions more about my past and character. The second and last interview is when they ask a bit more complicated questions but nothing to dramatic.Interview Questions
