Tax & Licensing Coordinator (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – December 13, 2012
Pros: potluck every fridays
Cons: not enough time to eat lunch
Some management were friendly, and some were stingy Was there as a temp Was critized alot for being free, when I had all my work completed far in advanced and at 100 percent completion. Management in the Licencing Department was very strict and wanted to know everyones personal life and then used it against us.
Pay wasn't great for the amount of work – more... I did and that I completed it early and way before the deadline.
Would start at 8 am to 4pm and half hour lunch – less
Billing and Settlement Manager (Current Employee), Burlington Ont – December 13, 2012
Pros: flexible hours
Trimac's safety standards and programs are second to none in the industry, they have won several safety awards highlighting their accomplishments. The addition of the manager of process optimization will aid in beginning to define roles and responsibilities and departmental clarity. The lines are blurred in that regard at the present time. I have learned – more... some transportation terminology and billing and met some knowledgeable and dedicated people. I have instituted one on ones with all my staff and been able to deliver on some deliverables that have been promised in the past but never followed through on. – less
Operations Manager (Former Employee), Thunder Bay, ON – December 10, 2012
Pros: travel, cell phone paid for, laptop, 24 help desk service
Cons: long hours
This position was a 24-7 job. My focus was mainly on making sure that the drivers and staff were safe and that they always came home to their families. Management is very easy to talk to and helpful. I had very good and respectful employee's. Hardest part of the job was just being on call all the time. The job also allowed me some travel to various – more... terminals to listen and learn new things. The most enjoyable part of my job was listening and learning everyday about something new that I could use as a tool to make all aspects of my job better and easier and most of all safer. If I learn one thing from being an employee of Trimac is safety is always first. – less

Driver/Delivery (Current Employee), Galt, CA – November 22, 2014
Pros: they let you do your job without micro managing.
Cons: lacks life balance pay decrease for otr drivers
Not a bad place to work. Good Equipment, Decent manager. Too many changes in the wages for the OTR drivers 3 changes in 2 months time. They took away the incentive to work harder by changing the pay scale from Miles to hourly. What you could make in four days now takes 5+ days. So you work longer for less money. Took away safety bonuses, took away subsistence – more... pay also. They gave the local drivers a big raise and a pay cut for the OTR drivers. The management has listened to the complaints about the pay cut but has not budged to at least pay the OTR drivers what they were making before they went to paying hourly. Team drivers moral is low. But what can you expect when they give them a pay cut and tell them it is not a pay cut. The drivers are not stupid, They can add and subtract. You do not feel valued,that was not the case until they moved from Mileage base pay to hourly base pay. They will loose some great drivers. They need to adjust the pay rate and pay the OTR teams at least what they were making before they went to hourly. – less

Administrative Assitant (Current Employee), Houston, TX – February 4, 2014
The overall company is a good company. Management does value and show appreciation to certian employees and not all employees. My typical work day is that I can never get my own work accomplished becuase I have people coming up to me to assist them with other things not in my job description. I should be considered Office Administrator for all of the – more... work that I do in the company. – less
Shop Supervisor (Former Employee), Cleveland, UT – January 22, 2014
Overall the company has a good maintenance program lined up for their fleet, but the branch I worked for was in a bad location so any commercial work was very hard to get which in turn I believe added to the closure of the branch.
