    I have been working at Total Quality Logistics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    TQL gives you the tools to succeed in a tough, competitive industry... What you do with those tools is entirely up to you. They set out the guidelines and expectations from day 1 and have held me accountable ever since. I enjoy the fast paced work environment as well as the work environment TQL has surrounded me with.

    Cons

    It is quite difficult to hit the numbers and meet expectations at TQL if you aren't willing to come in early, stay late, and go the extra mile when it is required. Lots of long, stressful days but more than worth it once you get over the hump.

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money. The harder you work, the more you can make! I bought my first house and a brand new car in cash due to TQL. I have never had a job that offers the financial freedom that TQL does. I was bought it since week 1 and still am after almost 3 years!

    Cons

    It is a stressful job that you have to work hard at every day. All the hard work is worth it and the money is worth the stress.

    Honestly, I have yet to encounter something I disliked.

    I have been working at Total Quality Logistics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You will get out what you put in. Period. Dont expect a 8-5 job. 6 digit income is realistic in 2 years to those that cant be stopped by any wall and have a burning reason to succeed in life.

    Cons

    Its not easy and not everyone is built for sales. It can be easy to become complacent.

    I have been working at Total Quality Logistics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Most coworkers are goal driven and hungry.

    Cons

    Revolving door, so you are literally just a number on a board that can be replaced. Double standard for brokers making more money. After 3 confirmed cases of corona virus in their office, they neglected to take any measures to ensure the safety of workers. After requesting to work from home home, they allowed it but refused accommodate me with any of the necessary equipment, even though during the government mandated lockdown, they sent employees home with computers and all other equipment. I had to purchase the necessary equipment without being reimbursed.

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

    Pros

    I pay myself. Its truly the only job, I have had where I can say I get out what I put in. Great training.

    Cons

    It's not a job for someone looking for quick paydays, its going to take time to cultivate your book of business. That's not a con, it's just sales.

    I worked at Total Quality Logistics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of successful brokers will give you advice/help

    Cons

    The recruiting team are excellent salespeople, and their commission comes from hiring in volume. It's a numbers game.
