    Pros

    There's a huge emphasis on the team and also having fun. You learn new skills that will stay with you long after the job, and there is an opportunity for making a lot of money.

    Cons

    It's hard. Some weeks your board is empty or a load drops out. At some point, though, you realize they are paying you to continue trying to make money, so it's how you look at it.

    I worked at Total Quality Logistics full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Beer at work. Informal environment. Solid training.

    Cons

    Less than 1 percent make it past 2 years. Only half those actually make the 6 figure type salary advertised. Have to work with unprofessional coworkers and truckers. Very high stress environment. Expected to work 24/7.

    Also you start with a draw that can take months or years to dig out from to generate commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire experienced professionals more often and help them by giving established accounts to manage. Hopefully they will help teach all the young people to behave with professionalism and integrity.

    Pros

    This job will provide nothing but the best training. They give you all the tools you need to be successful.

    Cons

    The base salary is 35k and when you take out taxes and insurance you end up getting about $970 bi weekly and you put in over 40+ hours a week. Once on commission they only give you 25% of your earnings and 20% if the customer has worked with tql before. They are a little on the greedy side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give good brokers a pay raise of 50k a year until their account is up and running. It will raise morale and produce productivity.

    Pros

    Beer drop Fridays are nice. They have good workout facilities that are free. Building is nice and training is provided.

    Cons

    Lack of integrity and commitment to employees. Employees are treated like bodies and the business model is to churn through new hires hoping someone becomes a cash cow for them (unless you went to school with the executive leadership). Extremely high attrition rate throughout company. Be careful of positive reviews on this site. Executive leadership have fake positive reviews written to offset the bad reviews, which is a good example of the level of integrity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is not interested in advice.

    Cons

    Challenges are it can have stress at times and you have to be accessible after hours which cut into work/home life balance.
