    Pros

    There's No Ceilings & No Limits to the success you have here. There's more than 60 offices across the US that you're capable of working from. Only promoting from within the company to ensure that employees know there's growth no matter what you do here.

    Cons

    There aren't any cons to the job for true competitors, hustlers, and self-motivated people.

    Advice to Management

    Lead By Example. Numbers mean a lot to some guys but there's nothing that a guy who leads by example cannot motivate.

    It is necessary to put in the work and time if you want to be successful at this company. If you are looking for a basic 8-5 job this isn't the job for you.

    Pros

    Total Quality is a great place to work. There is a fun positive atmosphere in one of the toughest industries. It's like family here at TQL. TQL has so much to offer from great benefits to competitive pay to employee recognition. There are some tough days but at the end of those days you sit back and realize you made a difference for the company, yourself and others. You get a chance to make a difference for others as well as improve your own life, whether its financial status or being a part of a great team and developing life long friends along the way.

    Cons

    Sometimes the long work hours.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits! Won't have a boss hovering over you after training.

    Cons

    You're always at work. Training is done by "successful" brokers who don't necessarily have any experience training. If you get stuck with someone who doesn't communicate effectively (or is verbally degrading, like I DID) then you're screwed. After training, if you aren't hitting the numbers they'd like to see, you're fired. Period.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the "I did it on my own, so, you should too" attitude. Also, get some people to train brokers that actually know how to train not just bark at them and use the method of, "When they screw up, we'll tell them afterward. At full volume. In front of the entire sales floor."

    Pros

    Environment is great. Relaxed and fast-paced at the same time. Great people. True potential to make money and grow into leadership positions.

    Cons

    Hard work that's not for everyone. But the hard work pays off and leadership is great to help get you there.

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

    Pros

    This company is one of the few that allows you to get out what you put into the job. Your effort impacts directly what you get out of the job. The uncapped commission, work environment, and benefits are just a few of the amazing things that you get from this career

    Cons

    When you're first starting out you have to work long hours but the long hours you put in help establish your book of business and help make you a successful broker. Also, the company as advertised is 24/7/365 so you may have to take phone calls at night and on weekends/holidays depending on your customers

    Advice to Management

    Keep the positive and fun environment

    Pros

    Money. Management. Work environment. Resources available to succeed.

    Cons

    Very difficult industry to get started in, and cold call sales in general is difficult as well.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support the sales staff to the fullest

    Pros

    The Denver office of Total Quality Logistics is unlike any other office I have worked for. The culture is unbeatable due to the amazing people that work here. The opportunity for success is arguably one of the best you can have in a sales company due to the market that we are currently working in and the high demand for talented brokers. The management offers help in every aspect that you need and will not give up on you until you are successful. The only people that don't make it are the ones that give up on themselves.

    Cons

    The work is hard and challenging and requires a grind at the start but the earning potential once you push through that initial challenge and grind is incredible.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to have a more keen eye for the people that are starting to give up on themselves and find ways to challenge and help them in order to make them succeed.
