Good place to work but pay and management needs work. Training available. But people that manage are not great and they dont try to keep great ones it seems like.

Facilities Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Fredericksburg, VAApril 27, 2018
This place lacks diversity and I would not recommend to anyone of color. I think they need to hie a consultant help manage racial biases in the workplace.

If you can deal with management and long hours you can make descent money
Fuel Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Fredericksburg, VAApril 25, 2018
Quarles was a great company to work for a few years ago
But it has turned into just another corporation more worried about the feelings of the office workers and profit then the drivers pulling 12+ hour shifts
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
To many to list

Productive work environment, fun culture
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Fredericksburg, VAJuly 12, 2017
Professional yet casual work environment. Management provided somewhat of a fun culture by providing events during working hours such as, company picnic, catered events, food trucks; lots of competitive events for associates such as food drives. There was always lots of food!

As with any company, management thinks the employees cannot handle the truth so there is always this feeling of lots of secrets in the air. Most of the employees prefer to just come in, do their work and go home. Not truly involved or engaged.
Pros
Lots of food
Cons
Elitism

Batched daily checks, posted to accounts, deposits,refunds,account adjustments
Administrative Assistant / AP (Former Employee) –  Fredericksburg, VAMarch 30, 2017
opened an average of 400 payments a day, added checks in batches of 50, post the payments to customers accounts. Scanned check payments into scan, payment went directly to the bank.
Processed AMEX payments, processed Auto draft payments for those customers setup.
Processed refunds to customers for any overpayments over 30 days outstanding,
Processed adjustments to accounts, for credits,
Workplace, had changed since all of the family members running the day to day operation retired, lots of changes with in the whole Company.
Cant say thee was a hardest part of the job, only on days when over 600 checks would be received to process, and all did get processed by day end.
Doing my job without being micromanaged. A feeling of satisfaction in completing my days work in a timely manner.
Pros

Great company to work for.
Transport Driver (Current Employee) –  Fredericksburg, VAJanuary 2, 2017
I work at quarles full time as a fuel transport driver. Quarles offers exceptional benefits,the best I have ever had. At a low cost. Also I came from a company that paid piece work. Believe me in this business all kinds of things can hold you up. A 10 hour night can quickly turn into 14 hours. Working in Richmond and northern Virginia the traffic is awful. Also there are the unforeseen delays at the loading rack and at customers Thank god quarles pays hourly plus overtime. Not to mention the monthly bonus. The management in Fredericksburg is really good. They are very understanding and know the business well. Working here is really easy just do your job and go home. Dispatch will usually give you 12 hours of work every night. I am sure if you only want 10 they would do that too. There is plenty of work to go around. If you want to work an extra day they are always very thankful. Also the turnover rate is so much smaller than any other trucking company I have worked for. I would definitely recommend this company to friends.
Pros
Hourly pay, overtime, benefits, Pto, great atmosphere, lots of work and good equipment
Cons
Can't think of one at this moment.

Advancement opportunities nonexistent
Marketing Associate (Former Employee) –  Fredericksburg, VANovember 20, 2016
This company is good. Most coworkers are friendly but the newest hires are cliquey and were often unfriendly or condescending. Previous management in this department was good but not highly experienced. The department ran as a team and ran smoothly. Unfortunately new department management does not run the department as a team and it became uncomfortable to work there. Benefits are great! PTO is great! Work/life balance is adequate depending on your manager. Hardest part to the job was keeping up with all of the demands from other departments which were not necessarily a priority at the time. The most enjoyable part of the job was coming up with new, creative ways to target the market before the competition. Also the company get-togethers where departments were able to socialize and get to know each other. That helped make the environment more open and friendly and easier to work across departments.
Pros
Nice coworkers, free food at meetings, PTO time
Cons
Poor management, underpaid, no advancement chances

Keep your head down and you will keep your job
Procurement (Former Employee) –  Fredericksburg, VAAugust 6, 2016
CEO wants 'yes men', those who speak up to improve or change processes conveniently get replaced.

Was a great place to work up until 2014 when management was overhauled and many people were let go, many other long term employees (5 to 10 years of service) left for other opportunities.
Pros
Decent Benefits, great co-workers
Cons
no longer a family company, all about the bottom line now, new managers have no experience in the industry so they are overpaid & ineffective

very busy when in season
Hazmat Delivery Driver- Seasonal (Former Employee) –  Manassas, VANovember 26, 2014
Typically, would get list of stops, then do pre-trip inspection, then enter information on the "Raven" computer in your truck. Then proceed to your deliveries. Usually you'll run out of product before too long, and then have to return to refill the propane tank, and maybe the fuel tank too. Towards the end of your run, you'll call in to see if there's any more deliveries to be done. In the middle of the season, there's lots to do, so you need to prepare for a long time out. It can be very hectic and stressful at first, but usually the locations of the customers tanks is what takes a lot of time at first, and figuring out where the best parking place would be. However, when it's very icy road conditions out, the trucks are very dangerous and easily slip and slide. Also the trucks are very top-heavy and can easily roll over if you aren't very careful. Even if you are careful, some driveways can be extremely bad for such a vehicle. Customers will call in for all kinds of reasons, so, if you do go off the road for any reason, be sure to call in to give the dispatcher "heads-up". You may need to fill out a "property damage report" many times. Management has times for how long it should take to complete each delivery, and will question your performance daily. This can be very stressful in itself, let alone the fact that you're driving an extremely dangerous truck, with no benefits other than Workman's Comp. Co-workers are very friendly and understanding of the dangers.
Pros
lots of overtime during height of season
Cons
trucks easily slip and slide even on slightly wet roads. Timed stops

Busy office
Customer Service Representative Fleet Fueling June (Current Employee) –  FredericksburgSeptember 1, 2013
In a typical day in the call center the phone can be ringing non-stop; and at the end of the day you can find that you have answered 100 calls and 100 e-mails.
I enjoy helping others and explaining how the different programs may or may not work for a particular customers. We all help each other with different types of calls.
There really are no hard parts about a job just another opportunity to improve your skills.
Pros
Benefits package
Cons
Some times you maybe the only person answering the phone.
