repetative, yet overll enjoyable
customer service representative (Former Employee), EdmontonJuly 17, 2014
Pros: flexiable hours, cafeteria that allowed tabs, weekly staff meetings to deal with all and any issues
Cons: repetative, gossip between co-workers, lacck of proper training
start time was at 8:00am, but due to the fact that i have children, they were very lenient with my hours. i was able to start at 9:00am.I, along with two other co-workers went through all the bills of lading and driver trip sheets and matched them with what the computer info gave to us. It was transferred off the satellite GPS from the semi trucks. The co-workers were pleasant enough just a tad catty at times. Management skills and professionalism lacked a small amount. The hardest part of the job was only to achieve the exact number of bills needing to be done in a day. it was not impossible, just difficult. The most enjoyable part was talking with the drivers and making sure their needs were all meant.

Class 1 driver
Super B Driver (Current Employee), Sherwood Park, ABMay 16, 2015
Pros: Newer equipment (tractor units), good co workers, hours.
Cons: Poor managment, poor careear advancement.
The tractor units are decent enough, just got the newer models this year. Everyone are good to get along with, pleasant atmosphere.To much emphasis on safety...it\s taken to far at times.
Management needs to be revamped, to many chiefs not enough indians.
Strange way of driver advancement.
Hardest part of the job, communication issues with dispatch.
the best part is hours, not a hard job to do, depending on what product your hauling. If you need to get home they will do their very best to accommodate.

An okay place to work
CSR (Current Employee), EdmontonOctober 9, 2014
The company has no issues spending thousands of dollars training their drivers, but training for office staff was non-existent. Terminal Manager at the branch did not like confrontation & preferred to overlook bad behaviour.

I enjoyed working for Westcan, I would have continued working there , however the long hours and lack of sleep was catching up with me.
