    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall the company is fantastic to work for if you are a hard working, dedicated individual, who wants to reap the rewards of your efforts. They give you all the tools you need to succeed and you just have to sieze the opportunity. People who succeed at this job are mentally tough, don't take no for an answer, are incredibly driven, and willing to do whatever it takes to succeed.

    I have been working at Total Quality Logistics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Unlimited opportunity, you get what you put in, hard work is rewarded, fast paced/high energy, great coworkers and support system, promote from within, gives back to employees and community, learn something new every day, 24/7 accessibility to office and technology,

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is hard, especially in the first year, long hours, takes around a year or more to make really good money, need to be computer savvy, sometimes I don't get a chance to eat lunch, it doesn't stop, this job is not for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the draw! (I think it's actually happening!)

    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.

    Pros

    Money. The uncapped earning potential has changed my life. Also, working in a fast paced, always changing environment makes the days exciting and work day go by quickly.

    Cons

    The rejection and cold calls are not easy handle, however that is an industry obstacle. TQL pushes people extremely hard to make phone calls and put more than just an 8-5 into it. If an 8-5 is what you are looking for -- TQL isn't for you.
