Overworked underpaid
Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  London19 June 2017
Work here if you want to work 70 plus hours a week and get paid for 40
Being told that if you work hard your bonus will reflect but in the end all the overtime you are not paid for the bonus does not come close to that amount.
If you enjoy watching co-workers sleep at their desks and play on facebook while you are pressured to work harder this is the place for you.
Management lies to their employees and tells them you have a promotion without ever giving you one then demotes and tells you there will be other opportunities in the future all because you perform better than they do.
Pros
none
Cons
long hours little pay too much pressure

Hard work, long hours, poor management.
Driver Trainer (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON16 August 2016
the hours are long. and the distances far away. Heavy loads to handle.. Different levels of management do not coordinate opinions and makes it difficult to know what is expected.

Great Experience
OS&D Operations (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON17 March 2016
Management is great to get along with and provide exceptional help when needed in the early stages. On a regular day I was responsible for the assessment of any damages to freight, investigated lost shipments and unidentifiable shipments along with answering phone calls/emails and providing extraordinary customer service to clients.

Speedy transport a place you do not want to waste your life in.
Rates Clerk (Current Employee) –  Brampton10 March 2015
An average employer will spend about...7.5 hours a day doing their job. Over time that does add up to be a huge amount of time of your life. Working here, will basically make the rest of your life miserable.

Communication between management and employees is disrespectful and extremely unprofessional.

Everyone is unhappy, those reviews you see about it being a great place....is probably them making up these stories to not seem as horrible.

Actively distrust employee, once again micromanagement comes into play here.

You can take the chance and go in for an interview, I can tell you this, they will tell you they are family oriented, that you have many opportunities to move ahead in this company, but they will not tell you what the role will like look in the future, why? Because there is no future there, they will force you to do a job that no one else wants to do and find ways to make it your fault, they will disrespect you and no one will take notice. This company does not value their employees. Human Resource? Does not work for you and is not paid by the employee, so who do you think they will try to help if push comes to shove? Please do not take this place into consideration. If you value your happiness and a future in a successful company that knows to thrive your employees must thrive; THIS IS NOT THE PLACE!!

The hardest part of the job: was knowing that this place shouldn't even be employing people with the amount of disrespect and harm they do to individuals.

The most enjoyable part: leaving this place at the end of the day

Unhappy needs a change
Forklift operator (Current Employee) –  Rutheford rd and Glidden Brampton3 March 2015
Not a healthy, happy, or decent place to work by any means. Management will have us work in outside conditions (ex- minus 39 with wind chill, heat was off in the warehouse and a ten hour shift that night).
I learned that no matter what you do at work here you will get trouble.
Co-workers are okay, hardest part of the job is showing up and the best part is going home
Pros
get to chose my own 2 breaks a 15 and a 30
Cons
all i get is a 15 and a 30 no matter what length of shift

Don't bother
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  BRAMPTON10 October 2014
The company suggest that they work as a family, but the only "family" they are talking about is management. Management only looks out for each other and the company. Immediately, you will know when someone does not like you, the women are catty and jealous. I would never recommend working here. If you begin working here and experience any health problems, expect to be fired. Don't even think about booking days off. You are replaceable. No job security and zero training. NOT A GOOD COMPANY !!! stay away, IF you work during the nights, expect to be paid 8 hours but work at least 11 hours or more. Good luck!
Pros
some people are nice
Cons
long hours, no job security

Stay tuned for Insidious 3 currently being filmed on Glidden.
