Whether it means financial freedom or earning potential, a career in logistics has made all the difference for some of our employees. There's a whole lot of potential in sales jobs here at Granite Logistics, but don't just take our word for it. See what our employees have to say.

Carving your own path

Making your own headway into a career in logistics comes with a lot of perks. We have a number of employees in logistics sales or management that have different experiences, but they all have the same level of appreciation. 
Your experience at Granite Logistics isn't limited to one you can find at any of the cookie-cutter sales jobs available today. Working with us gives you the ability to do more, learn more, and ultimately be more. Group of Granite Logistics employees sitting around conference room table
We'd hate for you to accuse us of blowing things out of proportion, so we sat down with some of our people to discuss what worked for them, and how we were different from their past work in logistics sales.
I’m not micromanaged (ish. gross!) and I can be me. I love rolling into work in a hoodie and tennies.  I enjoy that we don’t always need to be prim and proper. We laugh when we shouldn’t (yes!), tease, and poke fun of each other (we’re all a little weird - its ok, Karen). Many of us have worked together a long time and know it’s all in good fun. Ooh, and our food days. Dang it, I do love those. Also, I’m a Mom.  I’m given the flexibility to go to my kids activities which to me is priceless.

We know that today's workplace can still be demanding in more ways than just the work you do. At the end of the day, a career in logistics doesn't need to stress you out over the little things. At Granite Logistics, we strive to take away your worry from everything not related to your job performance. Take time for your family and for yourself. That's just one of the many core values that we hold. 

I am grateful for the flexibility and work-life balance that Granite Logistics allows its employees to have. Whether it be from spending a lunch hour running a child to a Dr. appt. or the ability to leave early to attend an event. We have a real community/family here and we have each others' backs. Many of us are not just friends in the office but also good friends outside the office. Ownership and management truly look out for their employees, give back, and want them to succeed and prosper.

How many sales jobs have you had where a fellow employee called their coworkers family? We'd wager that there aren't a lot, and some that make the claim are clearly faking it. four Granite Logistics employees sitting at a table talkingWe're bringing out these testimonials to show you that a job in logistics sales can be phenomenal and as close to a home-away-from-home as possible. 

I am grateful that I am in a career where my day is not filled with mindless meetings and instead can be spent following up with customers, prospecting, and confirming loads are picked up on time. I am also grateful that I am in a career where I am solely responsible for my customer base growth…I can blame no one but myself if I am not where I want to be.

You have all the tools required for a successful career in logistics, our company simply believes that we need to give you the environment and experience to show it.

The bonuses they award us within the office to celebrate our hard work is only matched by their continued support within the local communities.
