Manager, Strategic Sourcing (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB15 November 2017
Trimac is a great organization to work with. At head office in Calgary the corporate culture was work hard and play hard. Expectations were high, but at the same time a credit was given when a job well done.

Trimac
Finance (Current Employee) –  calgary ca9 November 2017
The culture as a whole is fun, loving, and nice. There is room for growth as an organization and progression in eradicating ancient processes. With the direction of CEO Trimac will be a fierce competitor.
Pros
Opportunity for a life long career.
Cons
Poor choice of some leaders, select qualified directors

Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  Sherwood Park, AB13 August 2017
horrible dispatch, management even worse. they will happily lie to o/o to get them to sign on truck. they will bankrupt you. stay away. they just do not care about drivers or customers. This company is all about manager protecting manager

Was good company but poor management now
Driver (Former Employee) –  Sherwood Park, AB11 August 2017
This was a excellent company a few years ago. After the new management team started things went down hill fast . As soon as they get some work they hire to many drivers and then nobody makes enough money . Even though dispatch and management promise you make money but then you don't get enough work. So of course they have a high turnover of drivers.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Low wages . Not enough work

Very difficult work/life balance; compensation is low
Information Technology (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB25 July 2017
Trimac is a tough company to work for unless you are able to give more than you are willing to get out. Job compensation is on the low-end, with job security being relatively non-existent in the past few years.
Pros
Family run
Cons
Long hours, small support teams, low pay, low job security

Transport of fuel and plastic material
Transport Driver (Former Employee) –  Concord, ON25 July 2017
My job at Trimac was to deliver Bulk products through Ontario. I delivered to gas stations and plastic to the railroad yard in Toronto, The management was very good, I enjoyed the people I worked with and the workplace culture was fine, The hardest part of the job was that I worked long hours so there really was not any life balance.
Pros
Brnrfits
Cons
Long hours

Bad Work Environment l
Petroleum Driver (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON23 May 2017
Old trailers with underspeced,unreliable tractors. Management that doesn't have a clue how to run the place. Too many office staff compared to trucks on the road. Totally disorganized and incompetent. Can't even make a driver schedule properly or make sure licence plate stickers on tractors are up to date. Branch 51 is a pathetic joke.
Pros
At least it's not Harmac
Cons
Clueless management

Don't waste your time. Big company worth basic wages, no career advancement and uneducated management. They will try to over work you worth flat rate jobs.
