    I worked at Expeditors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice people who are very helpful

    Cons

    There is very little opportunity to develop your career because they recruit for promotion roles. They bring in people who are less able to do the job than the current staff. To develop your career in Expeditors you need to be friendly with 2 particular individuals who are not very effective themselves. The business is simply not growing at the same rate as our biggest competitor and there is no strategy to do so.

    I have been working at Expeditors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company supplies logistics services to household name companies, which has given me a chance to work with one of the best companies worldwide. Expeditors focuses a lot on training their staff (52 hours minimum required per annum).

    Cons

    While they hire for attitude, they appear to promote for the wrong reasons. I've seen several great employees bypassed for promotions (roles they were already doing at the time and/or had been tapped to receive), while people unsuited to management positions (with numerous HR complaints against them) gained more influence. The teams I work with feel demotivated following years of this.

    I have been working at Expeditors full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Health Benefits, ok wage,secure, lots of opportunities, good ideals and values. The majority of people I have met are nice and genuine.

    Cons

    Bad work life balance, inconsistently executed ideals and values towards employees, lots of dated systems and processes cause unnecessary work. A lot of (depends who you know) attitudes . To be blunt the way employees are allowed to be treated by certain staff is sometimes disgusting. It's seems very little training is given to managers, supervisors and leads on how to communicate with their employees. E.g very little recognition or praise heard in the office, you only hear when something is done wrong, creating a negative environment.

    I worked at Expeditors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's easy work and the people are nice but there's little or no development as the management is very stagnant

    Cons

    No opportunity to move upwards or achieve promotion. They hire in rather than promote from within. The people brought into manager role are not better than people already in the business

    I have been working at Expeditors full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company is massive - in theory we have the possibility of moving abroad. Expeditors try to make you feel proud of working for them.

    Cons

    The salary is not great. The dress code is far too rigid. Very formal.
