      Potential for greatness

      Mar 27, 2021 - Sales 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Well poised to regain its position as the market leader. Company has proved the naysayers wrong for 20 years but its 100 years of successful experience cannot be over powered. It's Current strategy of one operating company as a super regional Carrier combining the strengths of all of its brands has the potential to significantly take market share back from all the young upstarts that took it from yellow and roadway in the 1st place, if they can execute it and not lose their top sales talent in the process

      Cons

      Suggest better pay for new hires to attract higher level talent also stop overly emphasizing inside virtual meetings and inside sales. True sales talent will gravitate towards companies that reward talented outside sales and sales management

      75% Team Runs

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      the miles / pay was decent

      Cons

      Team freight - 75% sleeper runs - they downplay this when you start. It's just as likely you'll get someone who has literally NEVER driven in snow - even in a car - and you'll be sleeping while he's driving to Denver from LA through a blizzard. That's why I quit.
