Q&A with Karie Barrett…
What makes QAT Global exceptional?
QAT Global is a really unique place to work. From the staff to the culture, it’s almost too perfect to be true in my opinion. Every day, a group of brilliant people work together to solve customer problems while sharing their expertise with the group and being constantly challenged to grow. There’s no standing still, everyone is always moving forward. QAT Global is one of the few companies that still believes in investing in its people’s skills and rewarding them for excellence. At the same time, management knows the importance of family and time away from work and strives to ensure that a healthy work/family balance is maintained for all.
Plus, when you walk through our doors, you’ll find that integrity is alive and well. People are honest, take responsibility for their work, and give credit where credit is due from the top of the chain of command all the way to the bottom.
These qualities are both refreshing and key factors in what sets QAT Global apart from the competition. They are also key factors in why people are inclined to stay a long time.
