Matt Herring | Executive Sales Director

I started 15 years ago as an LAET, just like everyone else. I always tell new hires that want to move up quickly, the best part of our company is that you can move up rapidly based on your efforts. It's not based on who you know, it's based on what you do. This was the first job that I felt like the opportunity was real. My goal was to be in management from the start, and I really worked hard towards that.

Bryan Tyson |  Group Sales Manager

I was new to the area when I joined TQL. I did not know many people at all. Now I can’t go anywhere around town without running into someone I know. I have made lifelong friends while working at TQL, and the events and activities that the company plans for us truly make us a unique group.

From our campus to yours, TQL invites you to explore our careers by participating in one of our job shadow events or by meeting us at your University’s career fair.

We know the career search can be daunting, but our recruiters are there to lead you each step of that way to help you.

TQL is proud to hire veterans and members of the Guard and Reserve because they possess unique skills and characteristics that set them up for success.

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


    Those that are hired figure out quickly if this job is for them or if they need to start another job search. The job can be stressful, the expectations are very clear, there is opportunity to be had, and I'd say that about 3 out of 4 people that join TQL either quit or are fired within the first year. This is a good thing for those that decide to stick with it, because there is plenty of money to be made.

    I work out of the Dallas office, and we have a great work atmosphere. Kyle does a great job and of laying out his expectations and where he wants you as an employee to be 6 months to a year from when you are hired. This job is a 5 star for those that want to earn commission checks and probably a 1 star for those that make excuses while feeling sorry for themselves.

    From what I've seen MOST (not all) former athletes and military thrive at this job.


    This job is not for the weak or faint of heart. It can be very stressful, expectations are clear, it's not easy building a book of business - it takes time, commitment, and dedication to master the craft. If that bothers you, then this is def a Con.

    I've recommended this position to a handful of friends, and they were all gone within of a month of being hired (I found new friends shortly after), so I do not recommend this job to my homies that are Alpha's or Lions.

    I do not recommend if you want a easy, secure salary, 8am to 5pm job and wear a suit every day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting Lions that thrive on commission and want to see the success of their peers / spawn.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Dallas, TX) in May 2019.


    Easy interview process. One over the phone and two in person interviews. First one is the basics and then the next two see if you’re qualified for the job. Last interview is with office leader and sales team leader
