Forklift driver (Former Employee) – Woodstock, ON – 10 July 2016
Load and unload trucks as fast as possible Safety is the utmost importance in a fast paced company Management had an open door policy keeping in mind, treat the employee right and they will treat the company right The hardest part of job is when to many workers call in and then getting asked to work overtime at last min.
A-Z Driver (Former Employee) – Ingersoll, ON – 4 June 2016
Opportunity to choose your run hours when run bids were opened up. Driver training of new hires was excellent - road tests were strictly enforced allowing them to check all drivers thoroughly before giving them expensive equipment to run
Forklift Driver (Current Employee) – Woodstock, ON – 23 January 2016
We start the day with a pre-shift meeting. After getting on our forklift we gather for another pre-shift meeting in our work areas for our assignments. After doing our vehicle inspection, we start our work. Unloading or loading trailers with stock going to Toyota is the main objective of our company. Although management tries hard to be fair the team leaders have their pets which is the worst part of any day. At the end of the day we were successful if we completed our schedules doing 10 plus trailers a shift. Thank you for this opportunity.
Very interesting to learn my job and also collaborating with CAMI employees to make both companies succeed.
Traffic Coordinator (Former Employee) – Ingersoll, ON – 8 September 2015
Dispatching with all Transfreight drivers, communicating with CAMI employees to ensure the line does not go down due to not enough parts. Creating new routes as new car models are added to the line, trying to combine all picks up on routes to make each route as efficient and economical as possible. Expediting any parts that are needed for the line to keep moving in a JIT 4 hour inventory environment. Management was very supportive and easy to talk to about any of my concerns. My co-workers were very hard workers and we worked great as a team. The hardest part of the job was the midnight shift. Transfreight is an International corporation that would give me several options to learn and improve.

AZ Driver (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 26 May 2014
Being on the road was enjoyable but the hours can get too you. Management and co-workers will all good to work with and for. I learned a lot on the road with all kinds of suppliers and border crossing. The hours just seemed to long. Seen a lot on the road and started too worry about my safety, that is why I got off the road and went to the factory.
