Delivery Driver Spotlight: Ernest Carrie of New Orleans
Driver spotlights are an opportunity for Dropoff to recognize the outstanding work our drivers do.
Ernest Carrie drives for Dropoff in New Orleans, Louisiana, and is recognized amongst our team as an exceptional courier. He takes great pride in the work he does, provides incredibly reliable service, and is regularly praised by the customers he works with.
Haydn Fleming, our Marketing Coordinator recently had the opportunity to sit down and meet with Ernest. The following spotlight speaks to Ernest’s character and his experience being a part of Dropoff.
Who is Ernest Carrie?
Ernest Carrie has been driving for Dropoff (formerly QCS) for 8 years. He joined the team after a 28-year career working for FedEx.
He’s a do-it-all type of person. He enjoys cooking, landscaping, walking his dog, and remodeling. He simply loves staying busy.
When Dropoff acquired QCS Logistics in late 2020 Ernest found that the transition from QCS to Dropoff was incredibly smooth. In fact, he’s had the opportunity to continue working for the same customer after the transition. He has worked a regular route for a large healthcare customer in New Orleans for over 7 years.
He takes such great care of his customers that they even awarded him employee-of-the-month 4-times, even though he’s not technically their employee. Ernest is so ingrained in their team that they treat him as if he was one of their own.
So Ernest, what’s your favorite thing about working with Dropoff?
The management team treats me with so much respect. The relationships I’ve built with LaVale Washington, Jason Burns, and Warmoth Guillaume will stick with me.
I take a lot of pride in my work, and the team knows that. When they call on me they know everything will be taken care of. When new people join the team I’m quick to help out with training and they empower me to be the best I can be.
I treat every delivery as if it was going to my Mom. Nothing broken, nothing left behind, and never late. I give my customers 110% every time.Ernest Carrie
