QTS is known for world-class data centers and innovative products that have been designed to meet the changing needs of our customers. But when you ask our customers about QTS, they don’t talk about our facilities. They talk about our people, our company culture, and the investment that QTS has made in supplying a people-powered level of attentive, consultative service unmatched in the data center industry.
There is a team-first attitude among QTS people. You see it reflected in the attention to detail we deliver in every aspect of our business. Our customers rave about the unyielding commitment of QTS people in every role in the company, in every market the company serves. They talk about the commitment to helping customers achieve goals and objectives, both in their day-to-day jobs and when actions above and beyond the normal call of duty are needed.
Our people are team-oriented, resourceful professionals who have the proper background and training to get the job done. Our engineers and technical staff continuously cross-train to be familiar with all technology and infrastructure that supports customer environments. Our ‘team spirit’ is not restricted to the office or the data center. It comes out in the willing support of the company’s commitment to volunteerism, as active givers of time, talent, technology and resources within our communities.
QTS people care about the success of our customers. Across the country, and in every role, committed teams of knowledgeable employees offer capable, hands-on service, in a way that shows a commitment to helping our customers meet their organizational goals, every hour of every day.

I have been working at QTS full-time (More than 3 years)
I absolutely love working for QTS. I have had the privilege of working in 5 different industries for 6 different companies throughout my career, and I can honestly say that QTS is unique. In a good way. The leadership cares. They are present and supportive and empowering and they hold true to their core values of Integrity and Character and Trust. QTS understands that you have a personal life and that family is important. You are expected to work hard and get results, but I have never worked for a company that is so supportive and team oriented. And this is unusual to say, but I LOVE working for my boss. He provides support when I need it, and lets me run when I don't.
I plan to retire from this company.
The company is growing very fast, so be prepared to wear a few hats. If you are the type of person who likes to be in a silo with one area of focus, you will have a tough time growing with QTS.
Advice to Management
Decentralize control. Offer opportunities in HR, Finance, Networking, Training, Development, etc. in locations outside of HQ. You have amazing employees who want to help make QTS great, but they are held back because they live outside of Overland Park and Atlanta.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at QTS in June 2016.
It was a very laid back interview process. Initially a phone interview then in person. The interviewers were friendly and helpful. Most of the questions were asking how current skills relate to the job needed. This seems like a great company to work for. The managers seem to value input and involve everybody in the process.
