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

Inconsistant and difficult
Commercial Driver Long Haul (Current Employee) –  Abbotsford, BC2 May 2017
I've found through my employment with this company that there is a high staff turnover. The head office branches have little to no communication with each other and the employees suffer and are blamed for the mistakes made from lack of communication from the offices.

Disorganized and not driver friendly.
Long Haul Driver/Mountain driving (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON15 April 2017
Challenger is a place where new graduates can do their time and gain experience,it won't be easy but Challenger prefers new drivers as they don't have to pay them much!
This is not a place for any experience driver, they don't pay enough and you won't get treated right. Most if not all dispatchers lie to the drivers and to the customers trying to look good and making the drivers look bad. Whenever you have an issue with dispatch you are sent to safety where they tell you to humour dispatch, management only cares about the office personnel. To them drivers are a dime a dozen and you will be treated as such. If you can help it please don't work for Challenger or you will regret it!

Have a good day and good luck on your job search.
Pros
They hire anyone
Cons
They don't care about the drivers
