Class 1 Driver (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 27 January 2018
Transx was a big company felt I was just a number pay raises were poor and infrequent I got along well with other workers and dispatch was frustrating but that can be expected with such a large company
Day starts at around 9 am in the morning with a brief team meeting discussing about the course of the day. i learned a lot from this job specially working in team and achieving the desired target set by the management. people in this organisation are friendly and helpful.
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 4 August 2017
Hard work and loyalty are not appreciated in this company, instead city drivers who pull over or sleep at the customer dock for hours after done loading or unloading get to work more hours and better pay. If you are a honest, hard working driver you will be sent home earlier as the dispatchers only feed their pets. Not sure about other branches but Mississauga dispatchers are the worst, especially the dispatchers manager and the head dispatcher. Some favorite drivers work much more hours than allowed by law while some don't get enough hours. Maybe bribe is involved. Very unfair. Management doesn't seem to care and fix the problem.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 17 July 2017
Very mismanaged never seen a company do so little with so much almost seems like they are not interested in making money only what a manager can squeeze out of it for there own carreer built upon bull @!#$. Very few of the managers have a clue about the equipment they send down the road or what state that equipment is in.
Brown nosing !@#$ rubbers go far with managment
Not what you know it is built ground up who you know
Would not recommend this company to a female rookie just starting out with their female Trainer, the recruiter knows she drives nights and apparently that's OK in his books.. Pay is pitiful for a rookie totally take advantage of the newbies and was personally told to my face that they aren't making any money off of me driving for them by my boss ..still trying to get paid after being let go for failing my driver test with an assisted back up.but hey they have no problem giving you a 300,000 dollar rig to drive all over Canada and the USA. Say that if your willing to learn there are opportunities for you if you work hard and are self motivated. But don't tell your boss he's inconsiderate for not straightening out your pay after several months of employment have passed. There is constant misinformation passed along to the drivers with wrong names and numbers for brokers and customers numbers to contact for pickup and delivery times. Constantly chasing required paperwork in a timely time frame to meet deadlines... Expectations for deliveries are not realistic when waiting at sheds for loading times.drivers expected to eat time constantly at every pick up. Constantly have to babysit every trip pay to make sure they don't short you on live loads or unloads and boarder crossing meat inspections. And rate of pay was only paid right on two paychecks over several months... They will promise you anything you want to hear to get you in the door,make sure you get it in writing because one guy tells you one thing and another guy contradicts what the other guy told you.. They havemore... good equipment that they maintain well after all it is their lively hood as well and no body benefits from broken down equipment..no Brainer... They lose drivers on a constant bases so this should speak volumes people so I will leave it at that...less
Opportunity for new drivers if you play nice and dont complain
Operations Management (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 November 2016
If management likes you, you will advance quickly. Staff is good, but feels overworked most of the time. Lots of efficiency/operational improvement opportunities, so if you're a go-getter you can influence and see results fairly quickly.
Good pay, Free BBQs, supports the united way, lots of opportunites for growth if you're smart
Long hours, micromanagement, lack of support/recognition from upper management, no add to pension plan
