Quaker Oat Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The Quaker Oats Company, known as Quaker, is an American food conglomerate based in Chicago. It has been owned by PepsiCo since 2001.
An outraged customer shared this in a review: ¨I also have been reaching for the instant oatmeal for years. But today I tried to eat some and now I have a horrible chemical taste in my mouth that I can’t get rid of. I was thinking about calling a poison clinic until I read all the other negative reviews. How could anything taste this bad and leave their factory. I have thrown the box out and will not be buying anymore. One star is overrated.¨

Customer Service Dispatch (Former Employee) says"I have worked in the logistics field for over 20 years and my impression of XPO was that it was a company with integrity that valued its employees. After working there for a year I found out I was sadly mistaken. It was the worst job I have ever had in my life. The management harasses and insults employees on a daily basis. No job is worth the stress you will encounter at this company. Harassment, sexism and discrimination issues are out of control.Health insuranceHarassment and discrimination.Thank you for your feedback.

HGV Driver (Former Employee) says"Sent in by agency for a 6.00 am start. There were a group of us new blokes. Some mutant behind the glass screeching something about " 360 " ?? He could have easily asked us to velcro the front of our hiviz vests. No induction or speech, nothing. A bundle of lines and a set of keys each and pointed to the warehouse. A surly forkie driver says wait in the canteen, we'll come and get you. Eventually at 10.30 am I'm ready to roll. 14 drops.All sorts, houses, shops, businesses. Perth, Dundee ,Monifieth, Carnoustie, Forfar, Brechin, Montrose. On a Friday !! Got to the first about 12.00 ish! Done what I could. Back at 7.00 with failed drops. They weren't best pleased. I told them where to stick their F*****g job.NoneToo many."

Pit Operator (Former Employee) says"I worked at this company 4 months through diverse staffing. I had a misdemeanor which diverse said it was fine that they had addressed the company about it and I was good to work. I worked more than 560 hours to get hired full time and barely missed a day. I then was finally being converted to full time and they did a background check on me and after 3 weeks of running said check told me that I was fired because I didn't pass my background check meanwhile they hire illegal immigrants and other people with far worse charges than myself even felonies. I probably could have sued them for discrimination but rather tell them to f*** off. Terrible company and they definitely do not know a thing about running a company especially hr. Oh, and by the end of it all I had 705 hours in through temp service.no prosLong hours, manadatory overtime and no say where anything is concerned"
Material Handler (Current Employee) says"In the few months working there I've yet to have a full 40 hrs and God help if you're not Hispanic. They pick and choose who works and who doesn't. Most people just stand around doing nothing while new people are expected to do their job and your own."
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) says"Spent 3 years as a dock worker for this company. This place will run you into the ground. Between constantly increasing your moves per hour and find more ridiculous ways to make your job harder and the crazy shifts that change every 6 months youll run yourself ragged trying to keep up with there demands. Dockworkers have no say in how to improve workflow most of the time your treated as if youre not a person. Management doesnt help you with any issues you may have because most of them have no clue as to how things go on the dock. They have a wonderful points system for tardiness and absenteeism, you will acquire points for no reason at all and good luck trying to fight it because management doesnt care.pMost coworkers are friendlyLong hours, no life outside of work, Getting treated like dirt."
Chauffeur SPL benne (Former Employee) says"J'ai un teste de conduite avec un chauffeur formateur à 16h00 je viens 5 minutes en avance car je suis professionel et ponctuel lol ce monsieur arrive à 16h10 ils discutent 16h35 une personne va le voir et s'excuse auprès de moi monsieur continue à faire ce qui la a faire il va prendre ça douche au taf prend sont temps ils est 17h ils discutent encore et après ils comprennent pas pourquoi je suis parti lol le respect chez eux doit aller que dans un sens à fuir il respecte pas les gens si le chauffeur formateur ce comporte comme ça j'imagine pas le directeur.RienIls doivent pas connaître le mots respect."
Reach Truck Operator/warehouse operative (Former Employee) says"The workplace was all over everywhere, no system, false job description, inept management. Meager pay and absolute racism. Was more like a drug den than a company.none that i was aware ofeverything"
Colleen Fennessy Hynes says"My order was delayed by 3 weeks and when it did arrive the chips that I ordered were smashed into pieces almost powder and 1 bag popped open. It was packed with soda cans. Everything just thrown in a very big box. Nothing protected. When I did tell them what happened they wanted me to send pictures obviously. Which I did. They responded they would refund me 50% of the chips only not the rest of the order, as they thought the crushed chips were still edible from their point of view. 5 bags of chips (1 popped) the rest crushed. I think I should have had got a full refund for the chips. I would not recommend them."

Francisco Bento says"Contacted customer service several times. I sent my order 11.mars.2020. Payed with my card so they took the money right away. A lot of days had gone by and no package. I sent an email and i got an automatic reply from an email, saying it might take some time before they answer. I first got a reply the 27 OF APRIL, stating that they would take a look into it. It has been 16 days, they haven’t replied to my emails, no explanation no money back nothing. It has now been over two months and no package. Customer service right now must be a mess, becase of the 6 emails i have sent i only got one reply. I just want my frootloops and cinnamon crunch. Get me my package!!!"
