    I have been working at Worldwide Express full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture here is something I have never experienced before in all my years of sales. The people you work for and work with are some of the most positive and energetic bunch I’ve ever had the pleasure to be around. When you’re here, your days are fast, and your success is unlimited. The potential for growth in this company is unmatched by any other, and I can proudly say I am happy to be along for the ride! If you are looking to find a place you can call home, somewhere that holds the comradery and excitement you’ve been searching for as a salesperson, then congratulations, you have found the right place to be. The interview process is thorough and very informative, they even give you the opportunity to see if the position you are applying for is right for you by letting you shadow your position for an entire day so you know it would be a perfect fit for you. I’m happy I made the transition to Worldwide Express, and I wholeheartedly believe that you will too!

    Cons

    Honestly, I’ll have to get back with you here. I’m having a hard time discovering any cons with this company and that is probably the most exciting thing about them!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing, you’ve created an environment to succeed and have fun while doing it, the atmosphere is incredible and contagious, all thanks to the leadership that has instilled this culture of positivity and success driven team players!

    Pros

    Atmosphere in the office between employees and managers, tools and programs available, equipment provided to do your job.

    Cons

    Growing pains, no CRM (yet), Industry pains with carriers

    Advice to Management

    Brokers need a source/training material to help understand SONAR, Freightwaves, and other resources that help us understand are particular market. And how to plan around certain trends throughout the year.

    Pros

    Culture here is by far their best asset. The people work hard and play hard and at the end of the day they get the job done as a team and always looking for ways to make the customer experience a great one. The people are loyal, dedicated and really like working here (all levels). I never hear any complaining. It is so nice to be in an environment where the success of both the employee and the customer are the priority. They don't just say it they make changes often to back up their desire for better employee and customer experiences. Great place to work.

    Cons

    I do not have any cons to working at Worldwide Express.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    The on boarding and training process are excellent. They fully prepare you for the job not only before you are hired by setting realistic expectations but they also put a lot of time and energy into the training process. The leadership team is extremely helpful and communicates with the workforce very effectively.

    Cons

    PTO/401k could be a bit better. Not a deal breaker though!

    Advice to Management

    When we were transitioned from Unishippers to WWEX our 401k benefits were cut severely (no match on commission income, decrease in company match, etc...). I hope WWEX will evaluate this as a company in the coming years.

    WWEX not afraid to take a chance on a young aspiring sales person. Challenging job in the way of driving & maintaining new business.
