It was a new account acquired from Schwerman, so QC gave use brand new auto Freightliner Cascadias with APUs and satellite TV/DVR, fridges, and all of the nanny safety devices. I thought they were a good company and was treated fairly or better. QC, like most tanker companies, is not one giant nationwide company. Each terminal is it's own planet in the QC universe. So what I experienced in Nashville doesn't tell you what will be the reality at any other terminal. I went everywhere in the USA, but it was dedicated. I NEVER picked up backhauls. I delivered "our" acid and drove home empty, even from the farthest corner of the USA.
QC in Nashville paid $1250 weekly gaurantee or the heigher of 50 CPM (empty/loaded) + $20/hr when waiting. On one trip to San Fran I made $2,000 in detention plus mileage because the customer made me wait 36 hour to unload. My favorite location was Klamath Falls, OR or Bangor ME. I went to 38 states before QC and QC allowed me to get the other 10 states on my map.
I worked their 2017 to 2020. QC has drivers paid by percentage, CPM, weekly guarantee. Each terminal is it's own planet in the QC universe. The only way to know what you are walking into is to talk to the terminal manager at the terminal you will work for and the current drivers at that terminal. You can also work OTR or "The System" with QC. I NEVER did that with QC. My favorite employer was Averitt Express. Great company, great people, great equipment, OK pay, great benefits. I was with Averitt for 18 years and then went to QC.
