    Great work environment and great people.

    Slow to see any type of commission. It's Salary or commission which ever is more, not salary plus commission. Don't let them lie to you because they will. To much testosterone.

    "Sales Team Leader / Sr. Logistics Acct Executive"

    I have been working at Total Quality Logistics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -No experience needed- Paid 6-month, hands-on training program. Paired with successful broker -Fun work environment (Happy Hours, Intramural Sports, Team Outings, In-office competitions, Friday Beer Drops etc) -Not redundant- Can organize your days how you want -Fast Pace -No micro managing as long as you are hitting effort and revenue goals (this is a sales job- you are expected to make sales and hit goal) -No region/territory limit on sales (can cold call any industry/region/commodity that you want & tailor your book of business how you want) -Uncapped commission (most people take 1-1.5 years from start date to hit commission) -You can choose which route you want to take in regards to moving up in the company (Leadership vs SR Broker) -THE MORE SALES YOU MAKE, THE LESS YOU ARE MANAGED -Resources provided to expand your book of business and keep up with the changing markets -Can do anything domestic/international (imports and exports)/LTL/Intermodal/drop trailers etc -Tech is all build in-house and changes based on what the sales floor needs to be more efficient and competitive -The more you grow and the busier you get, the more help you are given to continue sales growth -24/7 after hours employees on call specifically to field after hours calls and help brokers

    Cons

    -This is INSIDE SALES aka Cold Calling -Very competitive - numbers transparent and posted daily -High Stress/Fast Pace -Low Base Salary (This varies based on location from $32k-$40k/year) -Takes about 1-1.5 years to hit commission -This is a job that is 24/7/365- you are on call and it is a LIFESTYLE. With that said, there are certain commodities and industries that require more attention/have early or late delivery appointments- there are also accounts that will never receive an after hours call and have very low maintenance accounts) THIS JOB IS NOT FOR EVERYONE- And that is OK! One huge misconception that people have about TQL is that uncapped commission comes EASILY and IMMEDIATELY, this is not the case. I don't know of any job that will give you a six-figure salary without working hard. Daily hard work and hustle for 1-2 years is what gets you "silly money" If you get an interview, please take those opportunities to ask questions and FULLY UNDERSTAND the job- we invest a lot into our training, we don't want to waste your time and don't waste ours if you know this isn't a good fit
