Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) January 27, 2014
Freightquote announced plans to hire up to 400 freight brokers during 2014. This comes as a response to the company’s continual growth and will help Freightquote maintain its position atop the freight industry.
“Freightquote is growing at a great pace and we are looking for good people to help us maintain and elevate this growth,” said Tyler Ellison, Freightquote’s chief executive officer. “We are not looking for just anyone to fill all these spots. We are looking for people who are tenacious, hardworking, competitive and like to sell.”
The freight broker position is responsible for ensuring all aspects of Freightquote’s freight processes are operating at maximum potential. This role is responsible for managing and developing customer and carrier relationships, service and product planning, implementation, and delivery. In addition, freight brokers function as account managers handling truckload coverage, price negotiation, troubleshooting and dispatch capacities.
Freightquote offers a competitive base salary of $36,000, with the potential of growing to $100,000 within three years. In addition, full-time employees receive competitive benefits packages and have the option to set their own work schedules. Beyond the monetary benefits, Freightquote employees are encouraged to partake in the company’s philanthropic initiatives, which revolve around improving education for children here and across the country.
Freightquote moved into its new state-of-the-art, 200,000-square-foot headquarters off State Line Road last July. The building, which currently houses 1,000 employees, was built for growth and can accommodate up to 900 more employees.
