A poorly ran warhouse.
Forklift Operator, Order Selector (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLAugust 4, 2018
Low receiving standards.
A place where lazy people will thrive because management doesn't do follow ups.
They spend money on pointless things.
The equipment never works or is broken.
They are cut throat and will help out their friends before they help you.
They do one thing while telling you another.
They make it so you can't have a second job.
They cannot make up their minds on policies and constantly change things to how they feel it should be. Too opine.
There is a pack like mentality among management.
The cold dock is always wet because the have a ton of doors open and it creates an unsafe environment for anyone on heavy equipment.
The chargers always melt or have exposed copper on the cords.
Pros
Starting pay is 18.25.
Cons
Favoritism, stupid policies, they don't use senority like they tell you they do.

Hard Job with good pay
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLJune 23, 2018
It is a hard job but compared to others in the delivery business is easier. One thing about it is that all truck deliveries are made during the night so you have to be comfortable working nights and weekends.
Pros
Good equipment, nice people, good pay
Cons
working nights, lifting

Good Team/Poor Management
Receiver (Current Employee) –  Pineville, NCJune 21, 2018
You are fairly compensated and most of the workers at the Pineville location are a pleasure to work with. However, the location is poorly managed. The motto seems to be "get the job done with the minimum amount of resources." This mindset is a drain on the most valuable resource any company has... its staff.

Driver Helper (Former Employee) –  Kent, WAJune 17, 2018
My experience at QCD was fair to say the least. Poor management skills, and lack of resources made it a stressful environment. Working with a variety of people and learning the areas of the routes.
Pros
Good benefits, minimal supervision
Cons
Poor management

Pros
Free barbecue
Cons
Less money on pension

fast paced
Driver (Former Employee) –  La Puente, CAMay 14, 2018
Working here is okay if you don't mind working nights or weekends. The pace will seem fast when you first start (if you have never done food delivery). Honestly, if you're at least 2 months into this job and don't enjoy/like it or at the very least get used to it, this job is not for you. If you have never done food delivery or physical labor, prepare for an intense full-body work out. I can almost guarantee you will wake up sore most days for at least 3+ months while your body gets used to the work.

Management is quite clueless with the exception of a few people. Most of the people in management don't have commercial driving experience and have never actually done the job that you do. You will be penalized for driving mistakes as there are cameras facing in and out of the truck which also record audio.

Don't feel discouraged! This job is not for everyone but if you can keep up with the pace and are confident about your driving skills you might actually like it. As for the physical part, your body will eventually get used to it and it might even do you some good by helping shed a few extra pounds. I lost 30 pounds within the first three months.

A typical route has anywhere between 12-17 stops solo and 18+ stops with a helper. They cover a huge area ranging from the IE all the way up to simi valley, palmdale, etc. You get to your stop, park, pull the order for the stop. Boxes, chilled, frozen. The heaviest things are the milk and coffee. Everything else is in a tote or a tray. Expect to make 3-4 trips to and from the store/truck on top of having to put the milk and
  more... perishable goods into the fridges/freezers as well as back hauling empty trays, totes, and milk crates.

Do not expect to have a set route for at least 1+ years. You will be doing what they call "vacation relief" which is pretty much filling in for those on vacation, leave, or for call outs. More than likely you will be driving a different route every day you work. You will work 4 days and make about $950-$1000 depending on how many hours you put in. Most route are 12-14 hours. If you work a 5th day you should be able to easily clear $1100-$1300 for the week(take home).

Pros
benefits, overtime, newer equipment
Cons

Difficult job but a good job
Driver (Current Employee) –  Tigard, ORMay 8, 2018
I like working here and still do. It's very physical but good for your health.
Management trying to constantly improve things and I'm fairly happy with management.
If I have anything bad to say it would be lack of sleep, disorganized stores you deliver to but it's not most of them, just a few here and there. And sometimes trailers aren't loaded totally correct but its improving.
Some of the routes are long with a lot of freight to move in a time table. That's a little frustrating at times but overall a great job with great pay/benefits

Transportation Supervisor / Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Pineville, NCMay 5, 2018
It was an up and coming company but then they tried to rely on a group of individuals that did not have a clue as to distribution and transportation. Therefore the company is dwindling and customer service is suffering.
Pros
teammates
Cons
too many lies

Company culture
Manager/Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Portland, ORMarch 26, 2018
The culture is said to be guided by a set of Creeds and Values where employees and customers best interests are held in high regard. These are upheld for the most part as long as goals are met. During tough times the culture moves to more blaming / finger pointing and less supportive and team oriented. Job security is tenuous for mid level management as corporate interest is primary, often impatient and reactionary.
Pros
Solid company and customer base
Cons
Poor work life balance
