Cassi, Sales

 

What is your position and how long have you worked at ELI?

I’m an Account Executive and have been with the company for one year.

What do you do on a daily basis?  

It’s my responsibility to take care of my customers by setting up LTL, truckload, intermodal and international shipments. I’m also ALWAYS looking for new business, so with that comes my fair share of cold calling.

How has ELI’s ongoing training helped with your professional development?  

The owners make it a top priority to constantly introduce new content to every employee. You can tell by our supplemental trainings, lunch and learns, and everyone’s willingness to help each other that Express’ core value “NEVER QUIT LEARNING” is truly something that they cherish. Words can’t describe how excited and grateful I am to work for a company that gives you the tools and incentives to succeed.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

This one is tough because there are so many things that I enjoy. I absolutely love the culture of our company. You always see smiling faces and people working hard. We truly have a work hard, play hard attitude here. I’m a little bias, but I have the best customers. It’s great getting to know them and always putting my best foot forward. It gives me great joy to come through and do a good job for my customers.

Tracey, Sales

Senior Account Executive with over seven years of service.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

Each employee brings a value to our company and I truly enjoy interacting and learning from all of them.

ELI has many benefits and employee recognition is one of the most important values to the company. Our owner, Chad, has sent several emails showing appreciation and recognizing hard work over the years. I have also been fortunate to be recognized for various achievements. Most recently, I was awarded the 2017 top “Big Dog” for sales along with the “Presidents Club”. I am a multi-year winner for Presidents Club and have won multiple trips to Florida and Mexico since my start date.
