Seven Things I’ve Learned in the Last Seven Years

Today is Legion’s seventh anniversary. Or is it birthday? I’m never sure. I feel like I gave birth to this thing seven years ago in the basement of what was then my house. But I guess anniversary is more appropriate when you are discussing a company. The last seven years have gone by in a …

Tell Me A Little About Yourself

I used to man the table at a LOT of career fairs. A lot. And I’ve networked a lot in my life. A LOT. My opening statement for all these conversations is the same – “Tell me a little bit about yourself.” When I’m at a career fair and someone has just walked up to …

A Company that Cares

When looking at companies to intern at over the summer I knew I wanted to find a company that had a family vibe to it. I had a friend who worked at Legion a semester before me and he told me Legion is exactly that. When I first started working here I could tell everyone …

Not Your Average Internship

I stumbled upon Legion while looking around for internships at the end of my junior year of college. I was determined to find something that would give me a chance to exercise the technical skills that I had been developing in my time in the CIT program at NKU. I remember reading the job posting …

Why I Chose Legion and You Should, Too

I first heard about Legion Logistics through my fraternity brother, Hunter Lonseth.  While I never knew exactly what it was Hunter did here at Legion, or what services Legion offered, I heard nothing but good things about working here.  My interest in Legion didn’t just stem from Hunter though, it came from hearing Lacy talk …

Hunter Lonseth Receives Heart of the Legion Award

Of all the interns I’ve hired over the years, a few stand out to me as favorites, and Hunter is, by far, tops on that list. When he started with us two years ago, I wasn’t sure how he was going to work out. He was our first ever sales intern and he stepped into …

Laura Townsend – Million Dollar Club

This week, Legion is celebrating our fourth Million Dollar Club Problem Solver, Laura Townsend. The Million Dollar Club is achieved when a Problem Solver accumulates $1,000,000 in gross profit over their career. This award requires the Problem Solver to consistently be an outstanding producer, to be mentally tough enough to withstand this industry, and to …

At Legion, Everyone has a Big Brother

This morning, I got a text message from Levi, my Vice President of Operations, telling me that he had to go pick up one of our Problem Solvers who had lost the key to his truck. (And as much as I’d like to pretend this is unusual, it isn’t.) After a few messages back and …

Four-Legged Soldiers

Walking into work at 7:30 am, brushing off last night’s sleep and zombie walking to the Keurig, I know there is one thing that will always wake me up—Charlie. Charlie isn’t the cute IT guy or friendly security guard. Charlie is a 175 pound St. Bernard, and he comes to work with Ben, one of …

Bad News Doesn’t Get Better with Time

When I was in Officer Candidate School in the Army, one of the trainers told us over and over that bad news doesn’t get better with time.  He meant that when we came upon a difficult or bad situation, the best possible course of action was to run it up the chain of command immediately, …
