Chemical Transport driver (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 26 February 2017
Trimac is not a good place to work. They hire you at one wage then after a month they put you on a different contract and pay you less, but they do not inform you of this. They miss hole day's pay and not just one but several on a pay cheque. Trimac will tell you get overtime then after about a month they completely stop paying you overtime. When you go in about your pay discrepancies they say they will look into it. After a week they still have not even looked into it. After Three months work they have shorted my $4,200.00. If you want to be constantly fighting for your money and having to check every single day and hour you work then this is the place for you to work.
Lots of work
do not get paid for all your work. you have to fight for your money.

Owner/Operator (Former Employee) – Sundre, AB – 31 October 2016
working for Trimac was a good job. Gave me the opportunity from moving from driver to owner operator. Experience driving B Trains. I also learnt as an owner operator the truck repairs and maintenance are expensive and extensive.

I've worked at Trimac for 15 months. Such a great place to work.. they took time to train me no questions asked.. work is plentiful and I honestly think for me being a company man $80k a year is beautiful home every night. Pension is 2nd to none.. benefits are amazing. My Boss is easy going And if I have a problem he makes it right.. I hope to retire here.
Company Driver (Current Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 3 August 2016
Horriable pay they took all our overtime away got to get 60 hours a week before overtime is payed. So expect to make 1,700-1,900 just enought to pay rent/mortage and grocery's and for get about your other payment's. Expect to work 13-15 hours a day.
Class 1 Driver (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 July 2016
This company needs a major revamp. Management is non existent dont care about drivers. For a big company there equipment is in poor shape always broke down. Pay is horrible to begin with and always have to make sure u get paid for all your work cause they like not paying drivers. Lots of lies when u go for the interview and then the lies continue after being hired. Don't recommend working for this COMPANY at all.
Management, slip seating and very poorly maintained equipment
Extremely personable and friendly mechanical staff fighting a losing battle with an unknowledgable and power driven manager
Lead Hand red seal heavy duty mechanic (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 31 March 2016
Quit a good job to Accept employment at the Langley tank lines shop as a lead hand premium with a specific shift premium that allowed me to work 4 /10s as I was still living out of town. Took a month and a half to complete application. Started work on 8 hr shifts for 2 weeks, first three days didnt have a employee number so couldnt use computer or train, asked about shift after first week and was told I wasnt being a team player it may be 3 months before the shift is realized. Agreed to 4 10s with no premiums and came in for the new shift and was fired for somthing I did not do. Proved I didnt make that mistake, then more lies continued and being on probation means managers discretion. Long and the short of it , extremely poor management and infighting, Broken promises and powertripping.
