Lowest pay. Worst dispatching. Fired for no good reason.
Driver (Former Employee), Tampa, FL – December 2, 2013
Pros: they have to treat you nicely because the pay is so low.
Cons: low pay, confused management, expensive health insurance.
Quality Carriers uses an affiliate program which causes much confusion, poor load instructions and pay discrepancies. I leaned that a company with a single management set-up is more efficient regarding load information and pay. The most enjoyable part of the job is having a lot of time off, usually sitting somewhere miles from home in a truck stop; The – more... least enjoyable part of the job is seeing the bottom line of that bi-monthly paycheck, and wondering how I will feed my loved ones this month. – less
Owner/Operator truck driver (Current Employee), Luling, LA – June 23, 2014
my day a t requires safety and to very attentive. with quality we demonstrate safety first. management does they best ton help you with anything possible. my co workers are very helpful. the hardest part is just making sure all things are done correctly and in order. the most enjoyable point for me is when I completed my job and returned to terminal – more... to spend time with my family. – less
Delivery Driver (Former Employee), St. Gabriel, LA – June 25, 2014
Pros: will keep you moving
Cons: empty promises
I signed on with this company as an OWNER/OPERATOR. One of the things that's very important is back haul's. Although I was promised to have back hauls. They rarely delivered. My pay was riddled with fees and charges only leaving me with only clearing about 40% of my pay at the end of the week. It's not worth it for that much. I may as well just work – more... for a company at that little rate. – less
Dispatcher (Current Employee), Beaumont, TX – March 28, 2014
Pros: awesome drivers
Cons: better to not say
There is never a dull moment at work. My drivers and my fellow dispatcher are what make my job enjoyable. Probably the hardest part of my job is preparing for payroll cutoffs on Fridays. We only have 3 hours to crunch last minute billing in the mornings. The fun part is trying to track the drivers down to turn in their paperwork to ensure they get paid. – more... Like I said, never a dull moment. I have some of the best drivers out there though. – less
company driver (Current Employee), Augusta, GA – January 20, 2014
Cons: listed above
You work on a percentage basis with little or no back hauls. Very low percentage. Maintenance is mostly band aids and bubble gum. Terminals are shotty and dirty. Dispatchers will treat you like they own you. You will work with bad chemicals and get paid like your working with candy. Also it is an affiliate program so you actually work for a small company – more... under a big company name. In other words you work for an owner operator that is leased to quality carriers. There is nothing quality about them. Do yourself a favor and keep looking. – less

Tanker Driver (Current Employee), Houston, TX – November 6, 2013
Would like to get off the OTR driving and work out of Houston. Loading and unloading oil from tanker, always stay out side the truck when loading and unloading management is easey to work with co-workers work as a team, hardest part of job is putting hoses out and working with client is a joy.
Dispatch Manager (Former Employee), South Williamsport PA – November 5, 2013
Cons: read the review
I worked for an affiliated terminal located in S. Williamsport PA.
I did not have a driving position. I was in the office.
They hire you as salary, but then if you can not make it to work for whatever reason, they will dock your pay.
Training? F that. Into the fire you go when things are ok for some and not for others. The worst training program – more... I have ever been a part of.
Pay - was ok. Benefits, a little pricey. Atmosphere? Ridiculous. A handful of people working "together" but getting stabbed in the back as soon as they leave the office. No matter if it was the terminal manager, dispatchers, drivers, shop guys...place was a joke.
CHEM TRUCK DRIVER (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – October 22, 2013
Pros: good money and new trucks
Cons: not steady year round
From the get go the SLC terminal treats you like you are more than a driver. Good training and management. The equipment and maintenance are A+. The loads vary from time to time in money. I recommend this company to drive for. Be ready to invest some time to make the big bucks. At least 21 days out . The reward is good money for you are payed by the – more... % of the line haul. – less
