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.
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

Transx is a great company. But what makes it look bad is the ones who are in control. Like this recruiter Jessica. She never answers the phone if you leave a message or send a text message no reply. I would suggest her to quit the job if she can't handle. Wasting company's time and those who look for job.
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
AZ Driver (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 19 April 2015
The company is amazing to work for, there is long hours involved, with driving. I love my job and what i do. There isn't a day where the job doesn't challenge me to learn, and use all my previous knowledge within the job. I'm very devoted to my work and the company has gone great ways to succeed within the company.
knowlegde of leardership within the company, able to pick some runs, moving up within the company
Long haul driver (Current Employee) – Winnipeg Man – 14 January 2015
Although TransX is a good company to work for, the lack of communication between dispatch and the drivers needs improvement. The equipment is new and relatively well maintained. A typical day involves driving for 11 hours in the U.S. and 13 hours in Canada, it also includes transporting goods or equipment safely to the customer in all types of weather.TransX employs over 1500 drivers so it is difficult to to know all my co-workers although I have formed some friendships with other drivers. The most enjoyable part of my job is the indepedence and responsibility of transporting the freight safely and soundley to the customer while the hardest part is reacting to other drivers around me in adverse weather conditions.
checking emails from customers. problem solving with wrong billing, finding solutions to an on going problems. to fix them from happening again. making sure to submit daily, weekly and monthly report on each account whihc includes money value, the issues, and what have been done to resolve it. i have learned to manage the money properly and educate my customers. also different companies using different 3rd party payments and how they opporate. i have learned how to properly gather the right information, via phone, email, and DNBI. the work place had good people willing ot help eachother. the hardest part was sending customers to collections, but sometimes it had to get done. i will miss this job as i got very close with every customer of mine.
Tech (Former Employee) – Winnipeg – 28 September 2014
Worked to the bone with no reward. Hectic work environment, worst management I've ever seen blind leading the blind, equipment is complete junk, poor unsafe shop setups, stupid high turn over rates. Recommend you move on to the next company if your looking for work avoid this place like the plague.
