The company is lacking in strong leadership, does not allow for empowerment, and micro manages everything. the key to any business is its people, Beacon will provide lip service yet in real time has no loyalty to anyone.

They hire you as a driver but they can ask you to do anything else when there is no deliveries
They say one thing and do something completely different

They always need drivers cause no one will accept working in these conditions

They cant guarantee your hours and oblige you to take your lunch.

The manager cannot be trusted he is .just a tool
Pros
None
Cons

No matter how desperate you are for a job, or how annoyed you may be at your current job this is not your option.
Underpay and chip company


- No clear plan for the future. Every 2 years they changing managers and new managers bring his oven rules.

- This job not for new drives, they will throw you to downtown Toronto with 48 foot flatbed trailer and Moffett next day.

- Summer time crazy hours and winter time they will expect to you lay off or maybe 30 to 35 hours weekly.

- Safety just a world here they can give you overweight load and the shipping documants could be wrong too so you should make sure your truck weight is good.

- Management have no clue about trucking, nor do they care. Just they care, move they load point A to point B.
Pros
A work

The new manager should be removed from the Vaughan company
He has been bullying workers and they are scared to speak up. Some one should look into the matter and have him removed to a different location.

As I started working with this company, the vision was all about people but with the new acquisition, it became a question of money money money and the people vision disappeared. Being an American based company, Canada was left in the dark and being recognized as a region and not a Country. They decided to manage key departments from the US which results in requiring the Canadian management team to absorb a lot more responsibilities added to an existing full plate. I tis sad to see the Canadian team struggle to make ends meet. However, I was fortunate to have worked with very competent people on the Canadian side.
Pros
Insurance coverage
Cons
Corporate making bad decisions

Busiest in the morning time. Customers want to schedule delivery times for roofing loads. Only one truck for all of the deliveries in Kelowna. Usually dealing with the same customers which is good for establishing relationships. Most co-workers are easy to get a long with almost all of the time. Answering questions about roofing installation or materials. Getting to know the fluctuation of the market, and competitors pricing. Safety meetings weekly, and organizing yard and warehouse. Counting all material.
Pros
Free lunches, lots of free time to do recreational acivites. Down time in winter
Cons
Customers, co-worker inappropriateness, Lack of direction from management sometimes, Negative, abuse from customers, too much downtime, Disorganized merchandise

Terrible management. Everyone eventually ends up fired from this employer. They love firing employees from one end of the country to the other. High turn over of staff. Not employee friendly environment. Hard labour work with no benefits or rewards at end of day I would recommend to pass working for this company. Lots of better places to work.
Pros
No pros
Cons
Terrible management and no job security

Here is my overview of the Company in Dartmouth NS.

Maybe this is just a overview of a jaded ex employee but I would seriously look to work somewhere else to grow your career.


The overall staff is good and there are some very nice hard working employees there trying to make a living.

The management is poison and you can definitely feel it and the lack of respect is very apparent.

Management cannot wait to leave to another job else where other than Dartmouth and there is little goals and objects set.. forget your bonus. They still believe there are in sales and will not let you in on the secret instead of being a manager to help the branch.


The salary is ok and you are on the road but you are in a losing battle.

The customers are good people I must admit but with no leadership and direction from management the branch is a terrible place to work.


I highly recommend applying with another company.


Just one persons opinion,


Good luck,
Pros
