High stress and lack of support from managers

The job was stressful, with little manager support. A 12-hour workday is a very inefficient system. Additionally, the volume of incoming phone calls is so high that it's impossible to perform other tasks, and managers closely monitor this. Managers roam around the office pretending to work.


Long hours

Lacks work and home time balance

What is the best part of working at the company?Timely pay cheque and they follow safety What is the most stressful part about working at the company?They don’t have good planning and always change yours plans without letting you know. Pay short miles via their own BT miler instead of PC miler . What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Work environment is respectful but they want there drivers to work 6 days a week What is a typical day like for you at the company?Always ready to face new challenges. Don’t know what they are going to plan

Very unprofessional at every post they are only good at sending emails to a driver that's on the road driving and expect u read it but they will not call u, like I said ur not going to be dealing with one person ur going to have deal with 7 people to deal with the problem but don't forget they could be more because there at least 20 to 30 people working in the office but can fix one simple problem so ur gonna have to go though 7 people at least.

Great place to grow your skills and receive exposure to a wide range of activities

Working at Bison is fun with no two days being the same. If you’re always up for a challenge and enjoy problem solving, you’ll enjoy working at Bison. The management team wants to help your grow and you have the chance to form meaningful relationships with them.

Bison is a very stable and challenging place to work always looking to improve

Bison transport is definitely a place I would recommend working at for several reasons . They have a variety of shifts and location so you are able to pic what works for you and your family to ensure a proper work life balance. Bison looks internally for people to advance in the company and ensures that the people are given the training and coaching for there success in their next promotion with the company. Bison has and maintains a very respectful work place policy so that everyone who works here is treated with the respect they deserve. Bison has and also maintains a great work culture and ensures there are activities for everyone to participate in . Bison is always looking to improve and change to ensure the success of the company . Bison is always striving to be the best at what they do and a leaders in the industry . One very important thing that Bison provides is job security through the many challenges were are seeing right now with recessions and pandemics I have never had to worry about ifI will have a job next month or year.


great options for shifts and benefits

Good organization with a penchant for Continuous Improvement

Great culture with a diverse work force. I've learned more patterns in management structure and have also sharpened my various problem solving skillsets including SQL queries, budget vs actual reporting, VBA for automation and PowerBI, to name a few.


Focus on Learning and Development, Continuous Improvement, the gym

Great company to work for

Bison is a top tier carrier and employer in the transportation industry. I had been in transportation for approx 14yrs before starting at Bison and immediately I noticed how they do things differently. They have a culture of caring about all facets - the employee's, the drivers, the customers and the safety of all we share the road with. Personally I experienced growth at a very fast rate, having opportunities to continue to grow my role over the past 6yrs with more room to continue that path.


Opportunities, work-life balance

Big company, hard work, no time off

Been here for couple of years. Office staff changes all the time, every year everyone is new. They will try to work all out of you as much as they can, maximum days on the road, but at the same time will not push you to run like crazy in matter of miles, no funny stuff ether. Very hard to get extra time off, dispatchers are useless, cant figure a simple thing out, even a very simple thing could take a day to figure out. Equipment is good, if there is a problem with it - they will fix it at the shop or on the road, no questions on that front. Maintenance dep is the best part of this company, very nice and hard working guys.If no family and want to roll across America, Bison might be good for you. For downtime such as breakdown, waiting on load, long live load (over 2 hrs) they will pay up to 6 hrs (20$ hr) a day. Which is good for not working.

Awesome environment with lots of opportunity

I arrived at Bison a few months ago and so far I'm loving to work on this place. The environment with the team is awesome. My leaders are always available to support me and are always showing opportunities for me to develop myself.

Supportive Workplace

My overall experience at Bison Transport is positive. My direct leader is invested in my growth and development with the company. Development opportunities can also arise and it's important within the company that you rise to the occasion!I have learned a lot about logistics & transportation after being in a completely different business for 10-years. Work place culture overall is good. Majority of co-workers are quick to jump in when things go wrong.HR team puts together free lunches during the summer months and different activities when the seasons change. What I enjoy most about working at Bison are the relationships I have built with my co-workers. You do only start with two weeks of vacation, which is pretty basic for most companies, and while there are many options for benefits, you do have to pay out of pocket depending on which option you choose.


Free lunches, co-workers

conducive work environment

Long day and every other day comes with different challenges.the management is very supportivecreate a welcoming onboarding experience, encourage employees to participate on different responsibilities outside their daily's always a shock, as sometimes you might not know what's coming when someone is calling for help.most enjoyable part is helping drivers solve challenging issues on the road and making sure they're safe


access to free learning and opportunity for personal growth


less vacation time and low salary

Fast paced environment that offers constant opportunities to learn

Bison Transport offers an environment that promotes growth on both professional and personal levels. Starting at Bison Transport with little knowledge of the industry presented challenges and a steep learning curve. I have always felt supported in my professional development at Bison and appreciate the "open door policy" Bison's leadership embrace. Bison Transport also offers tremendous opportunities for personal growth as well. There are frequent opportunities to learn about different cultures through social events and postings, catered lunches, and the diverse group of colleagues that make up the workforce.
