Fast paced, good yard foreman, friendly shop foreman
Shunt Driver (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 October 2015
Start my shift at 0600, check yard for misplaced trailers (trailers that clients would drop anywhere, instead of having to back up into correct stalls.[ some of the new drivers admit they don't know how to backup a 53' trailer]).
I learned that if a client pays good money to the company, that some safety protocols will be over looked. (ie; glad hands will not release if trailer breaks away from tractor).
Yard foreman was easy to get along with, good communication with shop foreman.
The company did throw in a barbeque once a month, during lunch time.
Most of the office staff was pleasant and courteous, upper management was profit driven, and I felt like a number not an employee.
free lunch once a month, company health benefits
cramped driving conditions, large yard with no extra lighting installed for night shift.
