Great Experience
OS&D Operations (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ONMarch 17, 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.

Hard work, long hours, poor management.
Driver Trainer (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ONAugust 16, 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.

Don't bother
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  BRAMPTONOctober 10, 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

Unhappy needs a change
Forklift operator (Current Employee) –  Rutheford rd and Glidden BramptonMarch 3, 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

Unprofessional Work Environment With No Positive Support From Management
Cross Border Processing Clerk (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ONSeptember 23, 2013
If you are expecting to work on the dock using the forklift for your entire shift, I would look for another job. 97% of the time, you will be in an office processing customs documents with the occasional pull off or Windsor load. Management will then treat you badly when you do pull offs because your productivity in the office will suffer a bit. They don't care about their Windsor terminal and the job is just a revolving door. Management expects you to stay beyond your shift even though you are on a set salary and will not get paid for any overtime you do and if you don't stay, you are treated badly. In the past year, there have been 9 people who have quit, 6 of whom quit within 2 weeks of starting. No one is properly trained for the job and everyone is told to learn on the go and it'll be okay. If you make a mistake during your training, you will be treated badly by management and possibly written up even though you had no idea you made the mistake due to your improper training. The only good thing about the job is that the staff you work with are kind.
Pros
friendly night staff, fair medical benefits
Cons
unpaid overtime, rude management, insecure job position, minimal training, various health an safety concerns

extremely dedicated to customers and reliable
Accounts Receivable (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ONApril 10, 2013
I enjoyed my employment there, as it was a versatile environment, very committed to excellence. I learned how the company performed, their dedication to their internal and external customers. At that time the most difficult part of employment there was my Manager had "pow wows", as soon as I started which is actually a roast to the newby, which was me. Burt over time those meetings subsided. Upper Management had an open door policy and I made life time friendships :-)
Pros
steady work, excellent technology and extreme dedication
Cons
some personal communication was tainted as there were those that were lifers there

SPEEDY TRANSPORT A PLACE YOU DO NOT WANT TO WASTE YOUR LIFE IN.
Rates Clerk (Current Employee) –  BramptonMarch 10, 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
Pros
nothing
Cons
everything

Ideal place to work
Finance Assistant (Former Employee) –  BramptonApril 7, 2012
A pleasant place to work. The staff are integrated into the work environment and team play was a tool to advise set goals. On the job training was quite wonderful as everyone is always willing to learn a helping hand in impacting knowledge. The workers are very welcoming and see one another as a member of a team working towards achieving same goal.

The most interest part of the job is the time for report preparation and presentation in the finance section as this period really get everyone busy, setting of goals and achieving them.
