Working for QBP: Benefits and Perks

Whether you work for QBP in the mountains of Utah, the prairies of Minnesota, or the wooded hills of Pennsylvania, we offer a generous mix of comprehensive benefits and great perks.

QBP is an open organization with no walled-in offices. Our senior leadership, managers and their teams work side-by-side in modern "hexacles" that encourage communication and collaboration. Our LEED Gold-certified distribution centers—one in Minnesota, one in Utah—are spacious, quiet, filled with light, and have minimal impact on the environment.

This sense of openness pervades everything we do. We're open to:

Work Environment

Shower Facilities at QBP

We believe a building is a lot more than a big box crammed with desks, chairs and racks of products. Our physical environment directly impacts the quality of our work, our wellness and our relationships with everyone around us. That's why we've invested in constructing two LEED Gold Certified distribution centers and office complexes in Minnesota and Utah.

From rooftop solar panels generating clean energy to composting and recycling programs that reduce our waste, QBP covers a lot of ground to shrink our environmental footprint.

Our interiors are bright and filled with light and color. Open workstations create a sense of community, making communication natural and easy. Feeling hungry? Head over to Spokes Café. Our onsite cafeteria offers healthy, high-quality affordable food and beverages. Plus, strategically located coffee stations ensure that you're never too far from a hot cup of java, tea or cocoa. If it's a sunny day, enjoy our outdoor patio and picnic area on the edge of beautiful Hyland Lake Preserve.
