More information about this job:
The NETWork, TQL’s National Expansion Team, is responsible for expanding TQL’s satellite office growth across the nation. You start by joining one of our current locations or moving to our headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio where you train, build your business and in 12-18 months YOU can decide to stay put, relocate to one of our satellite locations or help start an office in a brand new city to catapult YOUR career.
As a Sales Representative for TQL, you are the Chief Problem Solver, the Head of Quick Decisions, and Entrepreneur for your book of business. You are the one-and-only as far as your customers and carriers are concerned – making sure their freight is picked up and delivered across North America, 24/7/365.
If you have an unbelievable work ethic (we’re talking the top 10% of anyone you know), the drive for financial freedom, and skin thick-enough for making cold-calls, then this might be the sales career for you. Train in one city. Lead in another. It’s that simple.
What’s in it for you:
$35,000 salary + commission. If you’re happy with the base salary, do not pass go.
26-week training and mentoring program.
Health, Dental, and Vision coverage.
401(k) w/ company match. Or depend on social security, your call.
Health and Wellness programs.
Leadership Development Program. 90% of our sales managers are promoted from within.
Unlimited commission opportunity. Downside--your friends will expect you to pick up the tab.
Annual President’s Club trip – this is like the Pro Bowl or All Star Game.
Ability to relocate to any one of our nationwide sales offices, and we’ll pay for it.
A career path like no other. Grow your own book of business, head-up a sales team or run your own office.
Quarterly sales team rewards, including TV’s, iPads, trips, and more.
Make prospecting calls. Upside--your teammates will toss you a football while you’re dialing.
Be able to make a sales pitch to people who have freight to ship.
Negotiate with shippers and carriers. We believe in under promise and over deliver.
Manage daily shipments and make sure they pick up and deliver 24/7/365.
Be honest and proactive in your communication to customers and carriers. Pretty simple stuff.
Provide customer service even your mother would be proud of.
You need the following to get in the door:
We prefer a college degree but we have successful sales reps without one.
Ability to multitask. That means managing at least two phones, while using email and IM.
Hall of Fame work ethic, a backbone for negotiating, and the ability to handle conflict.
Basic computer skills. Seriously, this needs to be on here?
We prefer prior sales experience, but we have plenty of successful reps without it. Be comfortable working on a sales floor with a lot of noise and a lot of action.
Slackers need not apply.
