Not a bad place to work If you want to be gone lots for not the greatest pay

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall good place to work, work environment is good, management and dispatch are helpful when needed. The pay could be better for being gone from home so much as you are on the road daily

Pros

Lots of sight seeing

Cons

Long hours being away from home, poor pay

Smithers Location is great

I would highly recommend the Smithers, BC location to anyone. The branch manager is a down to earth man. There are many highly experienced dockworkers and drivers here as well as office staff that is very helpful. Everyone tries to have a good and helpful attitude towards every job that needs doing. Many people voluntarily take initiative and go the extra mile to make sure necessary things are done right. The crew is friendly and easy going.

Pros

Family events, Christmas bonus

Cons

A few grumblers

enjoyable work

enjoyed the work, A lot of very nice people work there. As a switch driver it might be alright or perhaps as a local delivery driver, but as a highway driver,gypsying around the province it sucked. They think nothing of sending you off to Edmonton, Richmond , or any other depot and then telling you, sorry we don't ,we don't have a load for you. You will have to wait 24 hrs. One time I was dispatched to go to Edmonton on New Years day , I refused, If I hadn't refused and went I would have there for approx. 40 hrs. with no compensation. STEER CLEARof this place

Certainly not the best but not the worst either

Not a bad company to work for as long as you don't have I life you want to live, the pay is average where this type of work, but there's a lot of things you don't get paid for that with other companies you would

It all depends on what you like.

They aren't the best to work for, but it can pay well, if you have the right set of skills, whether you can actually use them or not. It can get a little crazy, but it's a busy place to work for.

I was looking for a temporary position at bandstra because my ultimate goal is to be working with mechanics. Because I didnt waste all that time in school for nothing.

Not much fun to work here.

If you like working with adult kids all day,then this place is for you. Hope you don’t mind driving broken trucks,taking weeks to get repaired. They tell you to report it,but you’ll get tired of typing it every day.This is not a organized place of work.

Pros

Get to drive in traffic

Cons

No overtime
