How is Jarrett “different”? (Compared to other company cultures you may have experienced)
Jarrett's culture is different because of the focus on the employees well-being. Jarrett does so many things for the employees that most business wouldn't. A couple examples include the wellness program, providing a food truck in the summer, and sending employees to baseball games.
How is Jarrett “different”? (Compared to other competitive, similar logistics services).
We are a one stop shop. We don't only route freight; we track freight, audit/dispute invoices, provide detailed analysis of data, and much more. We go above and beyond to give our customers what they need, and to make their lives easier.
Share a time you felt valued or appreciated by someone at Jarrett or by a customer.
When I went on vacation in March, our team lead was on maternity leave so my manager (Jared) had to help cover for me. When I came back from vacation, Jared told me he realized I did a lot, but didn't realize just how much. That was probably the biggest compliment he could give me.
We are grateful to have Jackie here at Jarrett. If you are interested in being a part of our team, visit our careers page.
