Fast paced, good yard foreman, friendly shop foreman
Shunt Driver (Former Employee), Edmonton, AB – October 16, 2015
Pros: free lunch once a month, company health benefits
Cons: cramped driving conditions, large yard with no extra lighting installed for night shift.
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.

There are so many aspects to the enviroment here. As a rental business, we cater to customers in so many areas, sometimes solely in one department and sometimes combined with other departments. Above all, customer relations is the key to success!

Ocean trailer was a great place to work and grow as a mechanic. The pay is right on par with other shops of its nature. The staff and management were good to deal with. Unlike alot of shops the owners take the time to get to know there employee's
