    I have been working at Total Quality Logistics full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Great work environment, no micromanagement you work hard you play hard. You get what you put in. It's not an easy job so its not for everyone. If you want to have financial freedom this is the job for you. The base pay sucks but seeing your mentors and trainer make tons of money gives you motivation on the possibilities in your hand. You just have to be patience and work hard and everything will fall into place

    Cons

    -Base pay, cannot live off of if you have a family, only about 1k every two weeks after taxes
    -benefits are ok but not better than my old job. you have to wait a month and a half before they kick in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your base pay should be base on prior experience, most kids coming out of college can survive on Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches but grown ups cannot. I'm glad I have a good saving to keep me going until I can get some customers of my own. Other than that the outlook it good if you not worried about the base salary

    I have been working at Total Quality Logistics

    Pros

    There is a great sense of teamwork and camaraderie, if you work hard you can quickly advance within the company, there is a high level of autonomy - you get to run your own business and take the driver's seat in any situation on your account. Benefits are excellent, and the company also does a good job of keeping their employees happy and making them feel appreciated.The location is convenient, the overall environment is great, and the sky is the limit with your paycheck.

    Cons

    Managing account while out of the office can be difficul at first, but once you build a team on your account it gets much easier.
