    I have been working at Total Quality Logistics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been here almost a year this is an awesome job with awesome people always willing to help each other out. Office gig but business casual not a full suit but you can if you want. This job is a place where you truely get what you put in. Time often flys by with out notice. I love it here and I have made many friends the culture is to be a family and it feels that way.

    Cons

    This is by no means for the weak willed it can get very trying and hard but where there is a will there is a way. Long hours and starting off you work half days every other Saturday and after training you work one a month.

    Advice to Management

    Awesome job have genuine concern for their employees and will hear you out if there is an issue. Keep it up

    Pros

    Very competitive enviornment. Very good place for former athletes to work. Majority of employees are fairly young so you can easily relate.

    Cons

    The constant yelling and clapping for absolutely no reason. Stress balls and inflatable footballs are being thrown all the time hitting computers and knocking over water and coffee

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Potential for high income. Quick Increases in take home. If you are successful/lucky then you can easily make close to 6 figures in the first year.

    Cons

    Very stressful and cut throat environment. Very long hours and no family life. Job and performance take precedence over everything else.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up internal systems. There is a lot of bad or out of date information.

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

    Pros

    There are lots of pros to working with TQL - mainly for me is the opportunity to build your own book of business. This allows you to pursue whatever industry/area you choose, and handle all of the day to day decision making on your account. In addition, as you grow your business, you grow your paycheck. On top of the opportunity to build your own book of business, TQL has a fantastic work environment, qualified support staff, top technology and supportive management team which make it a positive and encouraging place to work. Finally, the company is expanding rapidly: if you can prove yourself successful in sales, and buy in to the growth of the company, you have ample opportunities to move up to develop a career in management, should you choose.

    Cons

    The difficulties of this job are a result of the fact that it is a commission sales job. Building a book of business in a competitive industry is no easy task - but if you understand the type of commitment it will require, you will find no better opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - continue bringing in quality people, providing detailed and supportive training, breeding excellence and pushing integrity. The company is doing great things and I do not doubt that it will continue to do so.

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

    Pros

    I have the ability to control my own paycheck. The harder I work and the more time I put into my book of business will directly correlate to your paycheck. If you're not willing to put in the time and the hours then look somewhere else. You have to want to succeed, and those who have that drive are rewarded handsomely. Uncapped comission, free rain to run your book of business however you choose. The harder you work, the luckier you get. Potential to make 6 figures your first year on the sales floor is very doable, but nothing worth getting comes easy. And if you want out of the sales floor the potential to move into a management role is always growing.

    Cons

    Working Saturdays can be a bummer but its only painful the first couple times. Extremely revenue and numbers driven company, in order to move up promotion wise in the company you have to be putting up big numbers. At times you can work long hours and struggle with your work/life balance for the first year, but once you get past that and can see the big picture it will all be worth it in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, we're at the top of the industry for a reason.

    I have been working at Total Quality Logistics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment, especially for a kid out of college. Plenty of stuff to do outside of work with your coworkers with happy hours and company outings. If you're serious about making money, then this is a place you can make six figures or more within a few years, if not sooner. You literally see all the hours and hard work payoff in your paychecks when you start making commission consistently. It is really hard work and you need to put a lot of time into your book of business but it will pay you back if you continue to grind it out. New hires have to understand that this is sales and it is a numbers game. The people who quit/get fired after a year are the people who try to coast through the day-to-day grind.

    Cons

    The work-life balance is tough to manage for the first 18 months or so. It gets a little easier once you hit the successful broker mark and get an LAET on your account, but you will be in the office 50+ hours most weeks. Working half days on Saturdays is rough too but it is a much easier schedule now than when I started.

    Advice to Management

    More perks for successful brokers with an LAET on their account would be nice. Anything to help balance the work-life balance would be incredible. I know Cincinnati has all of the perks but the satellite offices could use some love too.

    Pros

    I've had multiple full time positions and this is the first one where the company aggressively looks to promote and reward the employees based on your effort and production. You have to be serious about making your career & success a main priority in your life; if not then this isn't the place for you. The earning potential is real, the growth opportunities are real, and the amazing culture is real. Is it easy? No, but nothing that's worth anything in life is easy or else everyone would have it.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work; but the reward is there.

    I have been working at Total Quality Logistics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Total Quality Logistics gives you all the tools and resources to become successful. Couple that with uncapped earning potential, and the fact that hard work does not go unnoticed, and you have yourself an amazing career opportunity. Tql has great opportunity for advancement. TQL culture is amazing offering fun things to do for the whole family throughout the coarse of the year. TQL cares about its employees.

    Cons

    Becoming successful at TQL is a major commitment. It doesn't come easy. You have to put in the time and effort to make it happen. Although work/life balance is a priority of management, it is still a struggle. We are available to our customers 24/7/365. If you are unwilling to relocate, the road to upper management is much longer. The money and culture makes it all worth while.

    Advice to Management

    Do not change who you are and who we are. Keep showing the employees how appreciated they are. You can never have enough leaders. Promoting growth outside of Cincinnati is awesome, but do not overlook awesome leaders that are rooted in Cincinnati.

    I worked at Total Quality Logistics full-time

    Pros

    High earning potential, ability to work as much as you like, and there is not a strict dress code

    Cons

    on call 24/7 365, no overtime pay, required to work some weekends, high turnover rate, tons of cold calls, have to deal with some very vulgar people on the phone, must be ok with stretching the truth to be successful

    Advice to Management

    clearly a successful business model as this company is quickly expanding to many different cities. No real need to change anything for the company to be successful because they take 75% of the margin on every deal booked.
