    Pros

    TQL is the best opportunity there is to earn unlimited income, period. The culture is unlike other jobs and sales environments. There is a no excuse atmosphere that is unapologetically opposed to laziness and complacency. You have to bring your best and if you do, the sky is truly the limit. $100, 200, 300K+ per year income, busting your butt, enjoying your coworkers, and getting an opportunity to take on leadership opportunities.

    Cons

    The job is demanding and does not allow for you to lean only on your natural skills. You have to be good, but most of all you have to be consistent. This is where most people struggle...the endurance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep rewarding and recognizing those who are doing things the right way.

    Pros

    TQL isn't for everyone by any stretch of the imagination. Every role is results oriented and there are no excuses. If you truly have the desire to succeed here and put in the effort then the sky is the limit. TQL gives you all of the tools to succeed, from unmatched technology to great team members, but you must bring the effort. Management is up front and honest from the get go. Everything that is expected of you is laid out in front of you and you're expected to perform. I can't think of a more transparent company.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. This isn't a job, it's a lifestyle - as cheesy as that may sound. Results aren't immediate and it can be discouraging. There is always pressure to perform. None of this should be surprising though as you're likely applying for a sales job in logistics - do your homework before accepting a job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep improving technology and staying ahead, continue to communicate goals to employees from day one.

    Pros

    You control your own business, it is what you make it. My pay is directly reflected by how hard I choose to work. If you chose to ...not work...then you don't get paid. Leadership opportunities happen every day.

    Cons

    it's hard, you have to make sacrifices. It's not for everyone and you can't just tip your toe in to test the water. You have to go ALL IN!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, take risk, make moves & keep our people happy.

    Pros

    Working here certainly isn't for everyone. It's a results oriented, no excuses environment. But if you perform, and have a good attitude they sky is the limit. The best part about TQL is they are growing aggressively and organically. That means they have to invest in their employees, so the opportunities for development and advancement are unlimited.

    It is hand's down the most engaging company I've every worked for.

    Cons

    Not much here, if you go into it with the right understanding. Things move very fast, expectations are high, your internal and external customers demand excellence. If you know that going in, there shouldn't be any surprises.

    Work/life balance can be tough on the sales side. Non-sales have a great w/l balance though with most teams having flexible work hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. Things are constantly changing, so it is very appreciated how open communication is from the top down on those changes and why we are making them.

    Pros

    The only common theme in all these reviews is the job requires hard work. If you do not have a strong work ethic, then do not apply. This job is tough and the ones that become successful accept the challenge. There are a lot of benefits offered by TQL, but the best is the chance to make tons of money. The kind of money that can change your life. Are you willing to accept the challenge?

    Cons

    Lot's of hours and stress. This is not a joke. You must be willing to sacrifice and fight thru hard times. The rewards are great but the road to success is bumpy.

    Pros

    As it is with any marketing/sales position you got to grind til the death of you. It's all about how bad you want to be successful. If you want badly , great if not it's not for you so stay far far away. The potential for growth is outstanding. I almost made it to the top just medical reasons stopped me.

    Cons

    You'll have some rough moments where you'll want to say forget this but in that moment if you actually quit you'll know this wasn't for you. But if you keep going you'll know you was meant to be a boss.

    Advice to Management

    Keep grinding

    Pros

    Opportunity for life long career. Potential for over 100k is real for someone willing to do the work. Takes nothing more than hard work. Everything necessary for success is provided and then some. Opportunities like this are rare and it isn't easy but it is tremendously rewarding monetarily and otherwise.

    Cons

    Must be willing to work your tail off. Don't expect easy or free. Can be frustrating and stressful but the right person will thrive and LOVE this work and company.
