Worst palce I have ever worked!!!!!
Key Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON6 February 2018
A typical day at work would be: Meetings, then more meeting, then meetings about more meetings. One department dose not know what the other is doing, The door is always revolving so don't bother making friends at work. Prepare to be micro managed!
Pros
I cant even invent one here.
Cons
To many to list in this single line!

Team Driver
Driver (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON4 February 2018
Team driving on dedicated route....work is somewhat steady, you will get miles. but dispatchers will push for more and call during your downtime to get you to go back OTR earlier. Some managers are not very helpful or great at trying to problem solve and are difficvult to relate to.
They say there is no seniority policy but there is it is an unspoken thing and senior drivers can take your route at anytime even when you are compelting all task on time and properly with no problems.
Cons
very long hours, little sleep, stressful work

Dont waste you your time!
Driver (Former Employee) –  Abbotsford, BC29 January 2018
Worked with this company for a few years. Was ok in the beginning but soon realized I was just another number. Wage was very low, no appreciation and lots of empty promises. Many other drivers had already left and continued to leave after I did. Unfortunately due to incompetent management Challenger is losing many long term, good drivers. Work/ life balance is non-existent. Top out Wage is still at the bottom for the industry. This place is in trouble! RUN don't walk!!!!!
Pros
Benefit Package
Cons
Wage, Managment, Truck breakdown, Family/Work Balance

Truck driver (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON25 September 2017
one of the best companies I ever worked for, how ever being gone for a week at a time is not for me, and they didn't have work at that time for me to do so I would be home every day there was a 2yr waiting list for that work. However their training I received as new driver I found very valuable and felt privileged to have worked there.
Pros
best equipment on the road
Cons
none i can thinke of

Drivers not treated with respect and viewed as such
Professional Driver Trainer (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON17 June 2017
Low pay no retirement plan. Company pushed drivers to max hours and time does not respect home life. The load must be delivered putting safety aside dispatch will falsify documents to get load delivered driver must be diligent to catch this or will end up with fines. Job starts off good with recruiting and training they tell you all the good stuff make you feel as if your in the perfect world after that you are tossed to the wolves(dispatch and driver managers) where it is the total opposite. If you run team open board you get mileage if you run single they say they guarantee 5000 miles biweekly you only get that if you do Toyota otherwise be prepared to just sit and wait as all priority is given to teams. Company does not care about drivers will ask you to do unsafe practices to get load delivered always the drivers fault and their safety department is a joke. Company only cares about itself very very high turnover
Pros
New Equipment on a regular basis
Cons
PAY treatment of drivers

Run this place sucks
Office Administration (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON7 June 2017
This company is in financial trouble. They laid off so many people from the head office I heard about 80 of good workers and good people. The human resouces lady told me the company was stable when I joined, what load of lies. everyone lies here. Pass the buck and blame everyone else. So many overpaid managers that sit on thier buts and let the underpaid minions do all the work. If you looking at joining this place just dont.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON5 June 2017
Enjoyed my time working here, but no opportunity for advancement and the job became quite boring. Good benefits and salary was decent. Co-workers were a bit petty, lots of in house fighting.

Excellente entreprise de transport longue distance
Chauffeur classe 1 (Former Employee) –  Dorval, QC29 May 2017
Transport sur longue distance idéal pour célibataire sans enfants. Le management consciencieux et respectueux. Un peu difficile de combiner bon millage et retour à la maison à toutes les semaines. Meilleure opportunité de faire de l'argent sur plusieurs semaines.
Pros
Respect des dates de retour à la maison
Cons
Difficile de combiner retour fréquent à la maison et bon salaire
