Meet Dane Frost
QuickShip Parts Support
How many years and what roles have you had with Kice?
I have been with Kice for eight years. Before joining the QuickShip parts department, I worked in shipping and receiving.
Tell me a little bit about your day-to-day job currently?
In all seriousness, we are basically the front lines of Kice. It can be extremely busy, handling customer inquiries such as phone calls, emails, webchats, and supporting our regional sales managers. There is not one day, that is the same. It can be quite a roller coaster, but also a rewarding one.
Working at Kice
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I enjoy being able to tell our customers “yes” when they need something shipped yesterday. Most of the time, we can usually meet the demand.
Can you share one of the things that are unique about working at Kice?
My absolute favorite thing is the people, and I believe it is what sets this company apart. There is a reason why so many people stick around for years and years.
What are three words to describe Kice?
Best company ever! (don’t you dare call me a suck-up)
Personal Side of Dane
What has been your proudest moment or accomplishment?
When I wake up, I give thanks to the Lord for the day, rejoice and be glad in it.
Do you have any traditions in your family, if so what?
My wife and I make Frito chili pie for Halloween… outside of that, not too many traditions going on in my family.
What is the worst thing you did as a kid?
My brother and I would mess with my grandma to the point where she would threaten to not cook for us. Fortunately, she would never follow through with that.
Five things you enjoy are:
- Playing/making music.
- Spending time with my wife and our cats and dog.
- Meeting new people, hearing their stories.
- Spending time outside, wherever that may be, admiring God’s creation
- Doing whatever I can to be a light in this sometimes dark world.
What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
Wiping the dog’s paws off when she gets muddy.
If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be?
I have always wanted to try to be a waiter to see how my tips would turn out.
You are happiest when:
When the band is playing all the right notes, and you are really “feeling” the music so much that you get the goosebumps.
What did you want your adult profession to be when you were a kid?
I wanted to be a non-starving artist/musician.
What is your go-to-show you are watching now?
I’m not really watching much outside of sports, now that we have that back! I am specifically enjoying watching my undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers play every week!
