Great Company
Office (Current Employee) –  Dugald, MB15 February 2017
This company was started around 1994 by Father and Son, they owned 1 truck and 1 trailer and have grown to more than over 30 trucks and too many trailers to count. These two individuals who are currently the General Manager and President are wonderful and hard working people. They work extremely hard and aim for the best for both their work and their employees. Most do not realize the heart, soul and effort that this family puts into their every day work to ensure their employees have a secure and happy future.

When they hire you, they welcome you with open arms into their family.

They do the best they can for every single employee there and make coming to work everyday a very easy task.

I am currently an employee here and know for fact that the Reviews marking this a low rated company are from disgruntled past employees who lost their job for all of the right reasons.

In fact i believe that this company gives you more chances than some people deserve because they truly believe in their employees. they see the good in people and strive towards it.

I worked in the warehouse for years and they inform you in all warehouse job ads that it its not full time hours. The damages the previous reviews claim are usually always caused by other companies or even the past employees given these reviews.
They work hard and diligently to ensure all highway drivers are given two days off in a row at home, get the keep the same unit and the runs that work best.
If you work hard, you absolutely have a chance to grow and learn within the company. There is NO favoritism, the
  more... extra bonuses, the promotions and the termination of employees is 100% fair and best for the company and its staff.

I strongly urge readers to come down to Birkett Freight and meet the wonderful people behind the operation. Whether you're a mechanic, a Laborer, Short Haul or Long Haul Driver do not hesitate to apply here.
We look forward to it :)

Horrible place to work at
Picker (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg Dugald28 December 2015
Training sucked, they weren't very specific. They expected you to know things all the time, like to read their minds. Management was very immature and poor, especially the general manager. No communication and the warehouse was so cramped you couldn't work in there half the time. What a crummy business, stay away from this company!
Pros
Wage was alright, great benefits
Cons
Poor Training, 5-7 hour work nights, Werent allowed to leave till done, No communication, General Manager was always grumpy, poorly organized

Newer Equipment and lots of miles.
Long Haul Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Dugald, MB17 April 2015
A family run business that the owner and senior management have built from the ground up. The president works hard and is hands on in all aspects of the operation.

The customer base that has been built over the years includes large to small operations. This company has established an excellent business relationship over the years with their customers.
Pros
Lots of miles
Cons
Long hours.

Pros
