Overall Reviews at Total Quality Logistics (TQL)
Fun while it lasted
I loved it - I was successful there and had a lot of fun! They said they believe in a good work/family balance but that’s not the case. They only cared about numbers and dollars- that’s it. It’s unfortunate because I was successful before I was even out of training but that’s not who I chose to work for. So I found the perfect job for me elsewhere. Also the managers where all so new they couldn’t help and the leads were awful I found my own and made my own success- and that’s the only way to move up if you chose to stick around.
ProsFree lunch, fun environment
ConsAwful management and leads
Not worth it
Long hours with minimum gain. Heads up. Something seems off here. No one tells you that you have a quota until your hired and in the door. These third party companies are criminal and should be appropriately regulated.
Great for getting your foot in the door and gaining professional work experience. Difficult job to sustain long term.
The company has a great training program that sets you up to be successful in the logistics industry. The company culture is great, but the stress will start to wear on you over time. It takes a special individual to come out successful, but if you're able to make it you're pretty much set.
ProsFun and energetic work environment
ConsStressful. Competitive. Little work/life balance
Good for young people with drive to sell
I worked here for one year. After training under a broker I moved to manage my own business. the work is basically cold calling businesses and asking for their freight. Most people tell you to buzz off but that is phone sales. Management is good and supportive.

Great people, stressful job
TQL does a great job selecting their employees. My coworkers made me look forward to coming in every day! The job itself is extremely stressful. Logistics and sales training is extensive, and they really do their best to prepare you for sales. The cold-calling is rough to say the least. The prospecting system is worn out, and adding new prospects to the system requires investing a lot of personal time into researching companies. Work-life balance is poor; during training, you have to be obsessive about calling to keep your job, and once you've gained a customer base, you're on-call 24/7, including vacation. I think they offer a great opportunity, but it requires a special kind of person to stick with it and reap the benefits.
good workplace if you can make it
very cut throat with the goals and very hard to make money unless you land or get handed a major account, which are becoming harder and harder to find
Prosping pong table
Consalways on the clock, poor commission structure and poor management
Very busy but fun work environment
It was great experience. Somethings I did not agree with as far as job security and some of the behind the scene information that you may not know, other than that it is a pretty good environment for people to work if you enjoy having fun at work.
Competitive and Rewarding
the hardest part of this career is staying positive, when building your business you deal with a lots of rejection, long hours and fighting to stay motivated. day to day work is always different which makes it exciting. there are always fun events weather it is happy hours, community service or family friendly events. the first 2 years of this career is hard work but the benefits outweigh the cost since you have no cap on how much you can make. the upward mobility is there if you want it. networking is key when you want to move up. for me TQL fit with my personality and I can constantly improve, no matter how long I have been here. I have seen multiple people also move to new cities to start satellite offices in Las Vegas, NV, Phoenix, AZ and Salt Lake City, UT. the amount of training also helps with feeling prepared to handle the day to day operations. the most enjoyable part for me is knowing that at any moment I can double or triple what I am earing while still enjoying what I am doing.
Prosno cap on earing, culture, felixbility in schedule when needed, great benifits and open dicussion with anyone in managment
Conswork life balance for first 2 -3 years and ability to handle stress
Ping pong table
Provide the account manager with trucks for his Nestle account from Allen Town, PA to the tri state area. Great good of people to work with. High pace sales environment.
ProsGreat people to work with
good people, terrible work, terrible pay
the people are the only reason i stayed as long as i did. you're over worked, underpaid and they lie to you from the beginning. it is not base PLUS commission, its one or the other. you don't make commission until your sales outweigh your base. and at that point whatever they have paid you for a base salary, you must pay that back in commission's before actually recieving a commission check. it's a very well masked pyramid scheme. would not advise to anyone.
Prosprizes if you land a customer
Consi'd rather have my commissions from the sale than a "Saturday off"
