operations rotten to the core
Fleet Manager (Former Employee) –  Steinbach, MB16 January 2019
The turnover in the office and on the fleet in the last 2 years has to be unmatched in the industry. Not something to be proud of. I have worked twice for BFS, the first time was bad but I had heard they really turned around the company after entire new leadership was brought in a few years ago. All those people are gone within a couple years. I fleet managed and there was a lot of favoritism to drivers who brought "goodies" for the planner and it was well known. It didn't change when I came back and the shop and ops leader were already gone. I lasted under a year this time
Pros
Reno's done to office and was nicer my 2nd time in office
Cons
no overtime but expected to work extra and bad management

Great Experience
Long Haul Flat-Bed & Dry Van Driver (Former Employee) –  Steinbach, MB19 March 2018
I worked at BFS for 4 years and enjoyed my time driving for them. I was given the ability to haul both flat-bed and dry-van trailers and switch between Regional and OTR lanes as I requested.
Big Freight has lots of miles to offer and runs new and well maintained equipment.

Worst Company
Drivwr (Former Employee) –  Steinbeck,MB9 March 2018
The company has good equipment but the staff are terrible,especially some few dispatch managers,too ignorant and very selfish,liars and non sympathetic,especially when you are injured at your work place.And working with this company you should agree to be mistreated like those foreigners who were brought from Eastern Asia, paid very poorly and mistreated by those Morons at Big Frieght.

Cover your own back door, because management won't
scapegoat (Former Employee) –  Steinbach, MB8 February 2018
BigFreightSystems management will lie to you to get you in the door, and after you're hired all promises given before hiring go out the window. Management has a "no fault" policy, which means THEY are never at fault.

INTERNAL SALES REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) –  Steinbach, MB4 November 2015
Big Freights is a workplace that strives for large numbers and diversity within the job. An employee at Big Freight will be required to learn on the job, multi-task a large number of priorities and maintain their image of a premiere service. If you want to learn quickly on the job and expand your current experience, Big Freight is the place for you.
Pros
Great work experience
Cons
Multitasking
