39cent/mile the benefits you pay for it aprox 75$/week.you are just a number nobody cares off your problem.worst dispatch I ever worked.700-800$ a week.they advertise the schedule runs,but dont even dream about it...Turne over rate probably one of the highest in the industry.just ín Winnipeg terminal every week 8-10 new drivers get training.good company if you like to be on the road 8-10 days and get paid 700-800$.Ohhh..and they will never ever pay waiting Time,even if you wait 24h ín the border becouse they sent you paperwork for wrong broker.and the reset pay is 50$ before tax.horrible....I could continue for days and days.If somebody thinks im an upset former driver,.. I'm not,this is all true...
Company Driver (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 26 November 2017
This van company has to have everything their way, and of course you will make minimum wages. Bad equipment when you start, they over do it on the safety for one reason only,to save themselves money. $100.00/ per day is what you will make after taxes, less your expenses., about $40.00 /day Ask them what there turnover % is. The Walmart Hauling Company.
Free Coffee, you can`t afford it
Long hours, Minimum wage, They only care about themselves
Company Driver (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 12 May 2017
If you live out in the streets and have no home Bison is for you! Trust me you won't get much home time..its a joke. Dispatchers are all a bunch of college students who don't know jack about trucking. They don't give a darn about you and see you as a number...I mean literally. When you phone in they don't want your name but the truck number cause you get a diff dispatcher everytime who has no clue whats going on and who you are. And expect to make on average $3000 a month...terrible money for living out on road. And don't think you can get local work...they won't give it to you.
free lunches (but rare since your on the road all the time!)
Owner/Operator (Former Employee) – Mississauga – 6 May 2017
Promises , lies and twisting your words!!! A complete chaos , not one single trip completed as pre-planned , as an owner operator I've lost over 40 ,000 dollars compared to my previous year. Big words , big titles , breach of contract !
Nobody takes responsibility for their shortfalls , dispatch becomes arrogant when you want better organized , longer runs. They want you to live in the truck , but you are still not making the miles , if not sitting at the border for 20 hours then you hunting down brokers !
Driver (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 11 April 2017
Worked for them a few weeks. I spent lots of down time that they refused to pay for. They will promise you everything but give you very little. They have internal polices that the driveris not allowed to see till they need to use it against you.
Only expect to get $700 a week on average as they can't make the miles that they promise then tell the driver it is there fault some how for not getting the miles that the driver wants to make.
Newer equipment and most of the dispatchers are nice. Upper management could not find a clue even if they where standing on it.
Good equipment, elogs, paid weekly
Mismanaged, poor milelage, crazy driver contracts, always trying to pay a driver less for there hard work.
Driver (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 October 2016
Expect 700$/week net, no benefits. You work 6 days on, 1.5days off. Or 14 on, 1.5 off. The company is garbage. No care or pride is taken at any level. The office staff are more valuable than the drivers. The office staff are paid 33$+/hr Ave. Where drives are paid 17$/Ave. They can only retain people with no experience and immigrants. They expect you to lick the truck clean for 10¢ and be proud of the lick job. Only benefit is there is no boss directly yelling at you and you don't have to put up with idiots directly all the time. Perfect job if your homeless and have a class 1. I feel bad for owner/operators and lease/operators thinking they are benefiting.
Parts Person (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 August 2016
Having worked primarily in the maintenance department, I have to say that this is one of the most dynamic workplaces I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. Opportunity abounds! With the right attitude you can move up the ladder as quickly as you want.
