No life work balance
Long Haul Driver (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB15 May 2018
You basically make minimum wage. During winter time there are days you will make less than 10$ an hour. Home time - forget about it. Nobody cares that you have planned something or have appointment. Waste of time.
Pros
Free coffee at terminals
Cons
No life

39cent/mile the benefits you pay for it aprox 75$/week.you are just a number nobody cares off your problem.worst dispatch I ever worked.700-800$ a week.they advertise the schedule runs,but dont even dream about it...Turne over rate probably one of the highest in the industry.just ín Winnipeg terminal every week 8-10 new drivers get training.good company if you like to be on the road 8-10 days and get paid 700-800$.Ohhh..and they will never ever pay waiting Time,even if you wait 24h ín the border becouse they sent you paperwork for wrong broker.and the reset pay is 50$ before tax.horrible....I could continue for days and days.If somebody thinks im an upset former driver,..

Great corporate culture, horrid dispatchers
Truck driver (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON3 October 2014
The three day orientation they gave me when I was first hired was great. everyone at corporate was very easy to talk to and was very pleasant and welcoming. once I hit the road full time I began to realize that the dispatchers out of the mississauga office were somewhat less than honest with the drivers. you know you are having a problem when you begin to use con artist style phrases like "bait and switch" to describe your conversations with them.
Pros
good Corporate culture, Decent quality equipment
Cons
Horrid Dispatchers, poor equipment maintenance.
