Job wasn't hard, just picked up loaded tanker and took it to where ever in the country it needed to go
Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) –  Richburg, SCFebruary 7, 2018
A typical day would be getting up usually early and take a preloaded tanker to a customer , it could be in Chicago , Texas, La., you would drive all day to customer and then unload, then get tanker washed out and head to get reloaded to go to another customer.
Pros
They really didn't bother you and left you alone as long as you did your job.
Cons
Very little home time, sometimes I would be gone 2 or 3 weeks, not much if a family life.

Pay Rate Calculations Always Changing
Truck Driver/Bulk Fluids Tanker Operator (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLJanuary 4, 2018
Never knew what you would be paid from one week to the next because employer held off paying drivers until vendor(s) would pay employer. Certain terminal managers would be abusive and expect you to drive during unsafe conditions.

A pretty good place to work
CDL Class A Driver (Former Employee) –  Springfield, MANovember 9, 2017
Quality Carriers was a good company to work for they took care of their drivers and also took care of the equipment. The office staff kept me running and kept me within regulations. The money was great and I hated to leave the company.
Pros
A great company to work for

Sitting for extended periods of time

must wear many hats
Regional Manager (Current Employee) –  philadelphia regionNovember 5, 2017
Be prepared to be hired for a basic position/salary and be expected to do the work of many positions. Upper management does very little to support you in this position. You are basically thrown to the wolves and left to fend for yourself.
Pros
great initially, but quickly disappoints.
Cons
too many to list here

"you will be disqualified"
driver (Current Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAOctober 6, 2017
Most meetings and messages start with the threat of being fired. Quality carriers bought Quality Transport in Baton Rouge. High turnover of drivers and admin people. New terminal manager blames drivers for dispatch issues. Lots of money for recruitment. Cheap equipment that breaks often. Recap tires on hazmat truck & trailers. Paycheck often missing shoptime, detention, deadhead. Lease operators and new hire company drivers do not stay very long. I am looking for another job.
Pros
multi-colored recruitment signs
Cons
low pay, no schedule, few home times, lots of Misinformation from management

Liars and thiefs
Owner/Operator (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXAugust 30, 2017
Worked for this company for 4 years and it kept getting worse and worse. The terminal staff leaves at 5pm and then goodluck trying to get someone to answer the phone for help. You will have to call extended services and wait on hold just for them to contact the person on call at your terminal to answer your question. The on call staff will only take calls from extended services after hours and weekends. Constantly changing rates after they tell you what the load pays and then all they can say is sorry when you bring it to there attention. I was an owner operator and was consistently having to fight for my money to get paid to me. Terminals won't help you with money issues when your an O/O they tell yoou will have to deal with it yourself. Dispatchers are incompetent and don't know basic geographical regions in order to dispatch you once you get out in the system, so you end up deadheading long miles to get work and only get paid whatever the fuel mileage is for the week, currently it is .22 mile. You will constantly have to fend for yourself and cover your own butt when dealing with anyone at this company. Unless you want to be kissing someones butt all the time to get decent loads, STAY AWAY from this company!! Terminal managers don't care about the drivers only about making money for the company and investors. Will nickel and dime you for everything. They charge the O/O for every little thing and claim its all paid in a month in advance and they can't refund any money back. They're quick to charge you for everything but slow to pay anything when they overcharge for it. They  more... pay detention and then take it back from your settlement. They have a closed group facebook page and if the President of the company doesn't like your question then he won't post it, Randy Strutz. Also if a driver complains on the Facebook site he's quick to tell the driver they have choices, basically if you don't like the rules then hit the road. How's that for company loyalty?? STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY..High turnover rate and don't care about drivers!!  less

Otr Hazmat tanker driver/yard switcher (Former Employee) –  Salisbury, NCAugust 15, 2017
this job was very good to me,it allowed me to pay the rent, take my wife out to eat every weekend, and still have money left to save.It became stagnant later on after about 3yrs with no raise.But for someone starting out, you can still find the beauty in it.

OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Sanford, NCAugust 13, 2017
Not a bad company to work for. I think it was a bit under paid for hauling hazmat loads but the manager was a great guy quality just couldn't get me the money I wanted. Very relaxed schedule, ran regional, direct deposit, and they also send you to tank school where they accommodate everything from hotel, food to pier diem
Pros
Ran my own schedule
Cons
Kinda low pay

Productive and good co-workers, but stressful.
Biller/Coder (Current Employee) –  Richmond, CAAugust 1, 2017
I was only a contract employee, so I was not eligible for any benefits, but they did offer them to their full time employees. Very stressful place to work, being sure drivers are in the correct place, deliveries went well.

The dispatchers only received delivery information the day before, so planning the trips was stressful and tractors and trailers were of a limited supply, adding more fuel to the fire.

I was hired for a temporary 6 month position to fulfill position while someone was on maternity leave. Asked to stay on for another 2 months to keep the billing up to date. No full time position available for billing only.
