    Positive Outlook

    I worked at EPES Logistics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great co-workers for the most part, awesome benefits and PTO package, employee health clinic, lots of company parties and social events, the down side to this is that is considered a benefit that they will throw in when low pay is mentioned.

    Cons

    Hard to get days off if anyone else on your team is off, make you come into office during inclement weather, lots of "cliques" in OPS department which can cause drama, extremely low pay, very stressful industry with tough to deal with carriers and customers. Will not let you work from home even though you have full abilities and tools to do so. May end up working far more than 40 hours per week depending on what accounts you are assigned to or what position you hold. Very little room for growth out of the average coordinator position but promise unlimited growth. Big changes are made and employees are blindsided by the changes only to learn of the changes via email announcement.

    I worked at EPES Logistics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good atmosphere in some departments. Excellent opportunity to move beyond your abilities.

    Cons

    Salaries too low to attract people who are good at the positions they hold. Promoting your own is a great concept but they need to have the skills. You get what you pay for. Or you keep what you are willing to pay for.

    I have been working at EPES Logistics

    Pros

    EPES cares for their employees like no other company I have seen or heard of. They provide so many great perks to us like a gym, frequent culture events, access to personal training, and an awesome work environment. This is definitely not the cutthroat environment some businesses have. I started as an intern and have grown with the company. They definitely reward hard work and promote from within. I love my job!

    Cons

    Anything Epes lacks, they make up for in caring about your family and about you as a person.

    I have been working at EPES Logistics full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Been with Epes for 8 years, started at an Admin level. Since then I have had the opportunity to move up 3 positions/titles. This Company invest in their people through mentoring, coaching and developing. Management pays attention to what you do and how you perform. They focus on your strengths and not your weaknesses. They coach and develop you by building on your strengths to help you succeed in your current role and/or preparing you for your next role. Epes has a dynamic training program for New Hires in addition to ongoing coaching and development for current employees, team leads and managers. They have 2 state of the art training rooms along with very knowledgeable trainers that have been with the company for years and have worked in operations before becoming trainers ...it is so awesome when you have a trainer that has actually been in the field and can relate instead of having a trainer that is trying to teach you something that they really have never done themselves. The Culture is awesome and fun...very family oriented organization here. They listen to their people and are continuously incorporating the needs/wants of the employees to make this an awesome workplace for us all. Epes is my Career...not just a job!

    Cons

    There are none at this time! Would not ever want to go anywhere else.
