Total Quality Logistics – Why Work For Us?

Total Quality Logistics (TQL) helps move products from point A to point B throughout North America. Essentially, we keep America moving for you and everyone else who buys anything.

Our customers have freight that needs to be moved. We find the right transportation provider to move that freight, bringing the customer and carrier together and creating the perfect solution for the pickup and delivery of almost any product imaginable. 

So, why a career in logistics? Companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars on truckload transportation, and every year more and more turn to third-party logistics providers (3PLs) like us to handle their needs.

Total Quality Logistics (TQL) is part of a $350 billion-dollar industry that gives our Sales Representatives the opportunity for unlimited compensation and career growth. We are the second largest freight brokerage firm in the nation. Yet, we only represent 4% of the market share. For the right people, the opportunity is here and now. Don’t miss out.

We need the best to fill positions in sales, customer service, IT, recruiting, accounting/finance, and so much more.


TQL is a workplace full of positive energy and passionate professionals. Transportation logistics is a fast-paced, constantly changing industry and the people who do this job are highly driven and intensely focused at finding success in any situation – for their customers, themselves, and their teammates.

We unwind and refocus by celebrating the people and the culture that we have created at TQL every chance we get -- in big and small ways. We host lots of parties and after-hours events from rooftop patio parties to company-wide competitions. Many of the offices participate in intramural or recreational sports teams. And through our TQL Cares program, employees volunteer in the community together. Strong teams are built by strong relationships both inside and outside of the office.

We are a multi-billion dollar leader in the 3PL industry. Our fast-paced, energetic sales model and state-of-the-art technology has propelled us from a startup to the second largest freight brokerage firm in North America.

Fierce dedication to our winning principles – integrity, honesty and teamwork – gives us the edge to continually exceed the expectations of its employees, customers and carriers, and makes this a company people are proud to be associated with. Do you have what it takes?

Mike Keane | Vice President of Sales
TQL was my first “real” job out of college. We didn’t have a fancy building or amenities back then. But when I came in for my job shadow, I could feel the energy in the room. People were on the phones negotiating or fixing problems. Although it was bare bones, the energetic atmosphere attracted me and I’ve been here for 10 years now.

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.


We are a multi-billion dollar leader in the 3PL industry. Our fast-paced, energetic sales model and state-of-the-art technology has propelled us from a startup to the one of the largest freight brokerage firms in North America.

We partner with colleges across the nation to recruit top talent, inviting all majors to start their career at one of our 57 locations. Austin, Vegas, Chicago to name a few. Watch the video below to see us in action. You don't want to miss this incredible opportunity.

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


    Truly unlimited earning potential and unmatched company culture. Work hard play hard mentality. Company benefits are unmatched in the sales industry. Every day is something new and not the same old boring tasks. If you are positive, hard working, and money motivated this is the job for you.


    I wouldn't say it is a downside because anything in life worth having is difficult, but if you want to be successful you have to be willing to put in the effort and time.

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Austin, TX) in July 2016.


    it was lengthy. definitely go into depth trying to learn about the type of person you are your goals in life and how motivated you are. They are looking for true hustlers ready to grind it out for the big bucks. there is also a drug test phone interview and the last round is a couple of shadows ending with a interview with the manager if you make it.
