TQL Hosts National Open House March 9; Company Hopes To Hire 100 Employees And May Give Away More Than $60K
Cincinnati – Total Quality Logistics (TQL) is hosting a national open house at its Cincinnati headquarters and all 17 of its national satellite locations on Saturday, March 9. The goal: to hire 100 of the nation’s top salespeople.
Open house visitors also will have the opportunity to win $60,632. This dollar amount was chosen because it is the average annual compensation of a salesperson who has been selling with TQL for two years. For TQL’s top 20% of salespeople, average compensation averages in the six figures. Visitors simply have to choose the correct six-digit code to unlock the vault. The promotion will take place at every TQL office nationwide. Each open house attendee will be limited to one attempt.*
“We work extremely hard here, but we also like to have fun,” said Kerry Byrne, TQL executive vice president. “The vault is a way to show off the trademark TQL energy and excitement that we bring to everything we do.”
TQL is the second largest freight brokerage in the nation, specializing in truckload transportation. The company is the middleman between shippers who have freight that needs to be moved with carriers who have the capacity to move it. TQL has opened 17 satellite offices across the nation and created more than 1,200 jobs since 2009. The company plans to create 300-400 additional jobs this year, primarily entry-level sales positions.
TQL salespeople are responsible for arranging the movement of more than 14,000 loads of freight every week, negotiating rates between shippers and carriers, and ensuring shipments arrive complete and on-time.
“We operate in a fast-paced industry that requires incredible discipline and an outstanding work ethic. In return, we offer employees an unlimited compensation structure and the opportunity for rapid advancement,” said Byrne.
More than 90% of the company’s current sales leadership team has been promoted from within.
During the open house, visitors can tour the company’s local offices, meet with recruiters, and learn more about the positions available. Qualified job seekers will be able to participate in on-site interviews.
“TQL has grown an average of 30% year over year since our founding in 1997. This is a great way to educate job seekers on our company’s aggressive national expansion plans and our high energy culture,” said Byrne.
TQL’s national open house will take place on Saturday, March 9. The company’s corporate headquarters in Cincinnati on Ivy Pointe Blvd will be open from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. local time. All satellite offices other than Chicago, including TQL’s additional Greater Cincinnati offices, will be open from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. local time. TQL’s downtown Chicago office will be open from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. local time.
