CENTERVILLE — If you think you’re a great salesperson and you’re looking for a new job or need one, consider giving Total Quality Logistics (TQL) in Centerville a call.
Company officials said Monday, March 11 that the company plans to hire 100 new account executives at its Centerville location over the next three years.
U.S. Congressman Mike Turner (R-Centerville) was there Monday to highlight the company’s expansion plans at the Centerville office which is located at 6525 Centerville Business Parkway.
The Cincinnati-based TQL, a nationally recognized leader in the truckload transportation industry, links shippers with carriers. Company officials said the Centerville office opened in 2011 with just six people and has grown to its current employee roster of 41.
Cong. Turner said TQL is a great example of a business taking a risk and finding success in the Miami Valley.
“These jobs could be anywhere,” said Turner.
Turner added, when speaking with members of the media, that TQL strives to find those unemployed military veterans who are looking for work. Turner said it’s nice to know that the company is recognizing the important skills our veterans have.
Ralph Lee, TQL’s Vice President of Human Resources, said the company is looking for people who have great sales experience working with customers over the phone. The company prefers someone with a college degree but are willing to train the right individual.
“It’s a very hard job,” said Lee. He added that they receive a lot of applicants, but are very selective in the hiring process.
Matt Disher is one of those employees at TQL who helps to find veterans seeking employment. Disher himself was a combat engineer for the U.S. Marines before September 11, 2001. He left the military in 2004. Disher believed veterans are easy to train because they are dedicated and can self-govern themselves. That’s what TQL is looking for - employees who are dedicated without making excuses and have aggressive personalities.
TQL recently celebrated its National Open House March 9. The company is given tax incentives for growing jobs.
