Dock Worker (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 14 June 2017
It is like trying to hammer nails with a broken hammer while your hands are behind your back and someone has stolen the blueprints. No thought for safety or people - the atmosphere on the shop floor is the worst I have ever seen in terms of negativity, hopelessness.
Why do I work here - it currently pays the bills.
Having the experience that I do it is especially frustrating to watch management destroy a business along with the people who work there.
Entry level Clerk (Current Employee) – Hartland, NB – 16 April 2017
Repetitive work, not a fun working environment (people don't talk to each other a lot cuz they have a huge work load), low pay considering the work they give you overtime not paid all the time, out dated system (same system for 30 plus years)... most people work here for the same role for years... not a good place to work if your looking for challenges or career development. Not recommended at all
Benefits from 1st day
Low pay, repetitive work, out dated system, no work life balance, terrible working environment
Multi cultural atmosphere to work. Management and co workers are amazing. I learnt many things here how to wok as a team and work under pressure. My manager is good mentor he showed me path every time.

Dock Foreman (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 April 2016
I would work all shifts up to 70+ hours a week at times working 24-32 hours straight
The salary is competitive but the benefits from blue cross are not as good as they could be
Advancement opportunities are there but that's because job security is terrible...Its just a revolving door...In 4 years I saw 5 different operations managers and 3 terminal managers get hired and fired
Since the management isn't there very long its hard to say how good the management actually is...The lower management are experienced and excellent however the upper management haven't got a clue
As everyone is afraid to lose there jobs the culture is very poor more of a blame game than actually taking responsibility
Overall if they improved there job security it would be a great place to work
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 5 February 2014
In the winter work is really hard because it is really cold and sometimes slippery. In the summer its extremely hot. There is a lot of downtime. Management was not good. plenty of times would drivers not show up and they scrambled to find replacements, same with the dock workers Alot of unhappy employees in this company. Co-workers were often coming and going with little interest in the job, 90% of the times alot of the last drivers would be late and you would have to stay longer which is brutal because the shift is already 5pm-1am.
alot of downtime / breaks
bad hours, dealing with agency is awful, employees come and go within weeks.
Freight Auditor (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 10 January 2014
It was was great work place supervisors and managers always made sure safety came first with all employees I learned how to work in fast pace environment and the job was very simple sign on the bills for the forklift ops and then get the supervisor to sign off on it so it would be sent to another department to be processed.
Data Entry/Dispatch (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 8 August 2013
entered all manifest in the system and assisted dispatch when needed,. I switched to the night shift and dealt with all the US freights. I made sure the drivers got through the boarder and fixed any problems that would arise.
night shift only had 4 people
when i needed answers businesses didn't open till morning.
If you like to sit and are indepentley wealthy its a great place to be
Owner/Operator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 November 2012
Good Company with many good people, but they have to many internal problems that just can't seem to work there way out. So you sit alot at different locations for up to 3 days waiting for a load and as a owner operator we all know that this costs a lot of money. At the end of the month there is very little left for you even with your truck paid for. i like the company but untill they clean up there act my oppinion is stay away unless you want to go slowley broke.
some very good people
to much sitting waiting for loads in different citys
Office/Admin/Data Entry (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 2 May 2012
I learned a lot about data entry. The hardest part would be remembering all the different systems to use for all the different types of data entry. The most enjoyable part is that I work will great people.
