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

    Pros

    The chance to make a lot of money. Everyone here is willing to help everyone else. All the STLs and SGLs are great and always helping out. The environment is laid back even though the job is hard.

    Cons

    I was told when I started it would be hard and told all the negative things about the job. They weren’t just trying to scare me, it really is hard. It’s way harder than I thought it would be. I didn’t start making commission until almost 2 years. I was coming in at 7 and leaving at 6 everyday and it eventually paid off and now I’m extremely happy. I went through spurts of wanting to quit a few times but I’m extremely happy I stayed because I’m making money that I never thought I would be able to now. I’ve seen so many people quit and not stick it out.

    Advice to Management

    New manager in the office and things are awesome. He genuinely seems to care and wants his employees to all be successful.

    Money, friends, team outings/happy hours,

    Advice to Management

    Just keep being transparent, don't lose sight of what made us great to begin with.

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

    Pros

    First three words: Money Money Money. I have been in Charleston for more than a decade and almost every job starts $30k-$40k with minimal advancement in the first three to five years (in terms of salary). I made $35k my first year, $75k the second, and have made between $100k and $400k each year since. The work place atmosphere is awesome and I usually find myself hanging out with the people I see at work almost every weekend. Once you make it, you have the ability to work as you please. 401k match is icing on the cake.

    Cons

    It's cold-calling sales, and you will be rejected on a lot of the calls you make. You need to have relatively thick skin and stay positive. Secondly, logistics is an imperfect world that constantly demands perfection. Once you invest yourself in your business, you work across three time zones and some times need to take after hours calls so your business doesn't take a hit. If you can come to terms with that, the sky is the limit

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. It's been a blast and still enjoy it each and every day.

    Pros

    I love the culture and how much of a team it really is! If you have trouble covering a load the ENTIRE office will work to bring you options!!! I have not "dreaded" coming to work a single day since I've started here.

    Cons

    Lots of hours but with any job where you have top earning potential you just have to put the work in!

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work!
