    Pros

    Unlimited earning potential.
    Fun place to work.
    Energetic
    Many company sponsored events
    Charity work
    401k
    Beer drops on Fridays
    Gym at HQ

    Cons

    Tough job. It's not for everybody. Managers hire people sometimes who claim they want to work hard and make a lot of money but are really just there to collect a bare minimum paycheck. When they quit or are let go for their lack of effort they come on these sites and bash the company. Don't come to TQL if your one of these people. Don't waste everyone's time. If you are offered the job then really think about it before joining. You may be a hard worker but if you are afraid to pickup the phone and sell to someone, don't come. It doesn't mean your a bad person but if the job doesn't fit your personality then you will struggle. Make sure it's a fit before coming on board.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being supportive

    Pros

    If you want all the benefits of owning your own business: unlimited earning potential, flexibility to grow your business in any industry you choose, etc. While also having the support of a large company that has your best interests at heart.

    Cons

    Same as owning your own business. It is on you to build your business, you must be available 24/7, sales is not easy.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    They give you everything you need to succeed in the industry

    Cons

    While I don't view this as a con. It takes a lot of hard work to become succesful here. If you can't take a little hard work, go somewhere else!

    Pros

    The only pro that I would list is they do give you an extensive amount of preparation and training.

    Cons

    There are many cons to working here but the most adamant is the way their system works. The company preaches a good motto however their delivery is shotty. There isn't much trust and honesty promoted in the business that is done with the clients as well as dealings within the company. It is a very easy place to burn out and depending on your success is too based on your social standing. Everyone has the ability to carve your own path but if you are not apart of the "bro" atmosphere it is much more difficult to go it alone. Turnover is also probably 80% in 6 months and that remains pretty constant.

    Advice to Management

    Actually invest in your employees. I also hope that managers become hired more for their actually ability to lead and their industry knowledge.

    Pros

    One of the best team environments I have ever been in. Everyone is cheering on your success.
    You receive sales classes from some very talented sales professionals.

    Cons

    Market is very over saturated there. The likelihood of you snagging up a big account is very slim. They will never give you access to the billion dollar accounts. You only get 20% commission off of each truckload sale, but first you have to pay off the draw they gave you based on your original salary.

    Advice to Management

    Look at ways to help improve your sales people. Continue to sit down with them and discover how they can improve on their current flaws.

    Maintain the mentorship and check ins with new employees. Help set them up for success once they start building there book of business. Keep the incentives and competitions to break up the busy days.
