    Pros

    1) Pay. The amount of hard work and effort you put into this career everyday pays dividends on the back end with UNCAPPED commission!
    2) Environment. Coming into work everyday is not a drag or boring because of the people that you are surrounded by. We're loud, fun, young, and hungry to make money!
    3) Opportunity. Not only the opportunity to make 6 figures in 2 years but also the opportunity to develop your leadership skills and climb the ladder!

    Cons

    Not everyone can handle the grind it takes to become successful here. It takes long hours and a lot of effort to get to that 6 figure mark. Those that want instant gratification will most likely be disappointed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to advance our technology and invest in our people!

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

    Pros

    I have worked at TQL for just over three years. There have been pros and cons throughout my career here but ultimately I am very happy with where I am today. I started out hoping to make in sales in the brokerage role. It is the most lucrative position and has the most earnings potential. Very few people make it, it is very difficult because of the competition in the industry. The role is meant for charismatic people with a relentless work ethic. Overall, it is a fun company atmosphere with quality people to work with. If hearing no gets you down- this is not the job for you. If you make a legitimate effort to succeed management will certainly recognize your efforts. After struggling in the brokerage role, It was mutually decided for me to move into a sales support role after my first year. Since the move, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. It is less stressful even though I can take on more responsibility and have better compensation.

    The company business model is one of the best in the industry. This company is not going anywhere and will adapt to stay ahead of future challenges. They really reinvest into making it better. They offer very competitive medical and retirement benefits.

    The day to day can be a very fun hustle when you are busy. When things go right it is one of the easiest jobs in the world. When things go wrong you simply have to communicate it and have a difficult conversation and move on.

    Cons

    There can be a lot of negativity because of higher turnover and stringent goals. Extremely competitive environment for generating leads. Customers have to pay on time to receive full compensation on commission. It is a very stressful industry where you have to clean up a lot of other peoples mistakes even when no fault of your own.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make it a better environment for employees to have success. The more we can cater towards the employee making it successfully here the more talent we will be able to attract.

    Pros

    Great career, great money, room for advancement. TQL goes out of the way to make sure we are having fun while getting it done... Golf outings, office social hours, and tons of incentives for travel and leisure.

    Cons

    Hard work, you will be on the phone a lot. You will have to be better than the employee that you sit next to... not really a con, more of a FACT.

    Pros

    Work Hard/Play Hard
    Great people across the board, from the VPs down to the new hires.
    Amazing support from the company and great perks.
    FUN- events, outings, picnics, patio parties, family functions, etc.
    This is truly a company where we all share in our successes.
    Challenging but rewarding sales job!

    Cons

    Creating sales can be tough and people will say "no" to you a lot. Don't take it personal. If you make a commitment to yourself that you are going to put your time in, prep for cold calls, follow up with prospects, and learn to build rapport with your customers, this can be your dream job!

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees and being a BEST PLACE TO WORK!
