I left Bison because of poor customs, dispatch, operations and Eastern planning management. Dispatchers and customs are not qualified, trucks are sitting at the border for a night due to missing trailer license plate numbers for ACI (night dispatch cannot fix customs issue as they are not trained), plans for drivers for 300 miles per a day out of Mississauga with no communication, appointments not confirmed so drivers are sitting waiting for appointments, fleet managers are hired with no experience. Dispatch supervisor puts every late as driver error even if the plan was not put together properly not focusing of the original cause of delay but rather on driver not notifying of planning error of his error.

OTR company driver, so away 5 to 7 days. 12 to 16+ hour days. Paid peice work( per mile) waiting time paid after 2 hours, then for a max of 6. Does not pay you if you are waiting for new dispatch.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Bison Transport a better place to work?
I would hire qualified dispatchers, fleet managers and customs administrators to make sure drivers are being looked after and are being helped. I would suggest to hire less people but more qualified. This would reduce border wait times, detention pay on the fleets and number of phone calls Bison has to handle.
Would Bison be interested in endenturing a 1st year HD Technician who has switched careers/trade and is looking for a company to begin his apprenticeship with?
