Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
What is the best part of working at the company?The people I work with and for. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?As with all Companies the obvious, to me not enough to mention in a review. It is what each individual makes of it. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Again as with all Companies the work environment in my opinion is good. There is room for improvement but nothing I would want to write about in a review.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Very, very busy. Never the same, yet similar on a day to day basis.

Was a good company but going downhill

Were to begin, management is terrible, they lie all the time, they either don't make decisions or make bad ones.There is no schedule, they say they care but only give federal minimums. NO over time no incentives. Work is very on and off. Could be sitting for a day or more then one or two days are busy.They don't do prevention maintenance so truck and trailers are always breaking down.The company is run by committee, if one person doesn't want to do something it doesn't get done.. so you can imagine no much changes, if you bring up legitimate concerns they will hear you out but do nothing to change. I would stay clear. There reputation is going down fast

Woulnt recomend any one to work for Caron Transport

Management and supervisor dont care at all about drivers or theirs chalenges.Each trip is already has pre-set hours, that is mostly cannot be achieved even if you dont take any breaks and drive over speed limits. Salary is low for the job drivers do.Make sure to check paycheques as often there are missing hours.Very bad life style.Overtime paid only after 60 total hours.No break paid.Bonus will loose if work less then 1 year.many times shifts are not availible as company is not always busy and also loosing contracts because of their very high delivery price.


company can take any driver as long he has class 1 and Zero expirince


too many to discribe

Shortage of work

Barely worked my 70 hour limit since March. Company has been hiring people constantly, yet tells drivers that there isn't enough work for them and that they have to reset early. Fastest reset was 2 days after I started a new week.If you're hoping to join Caron to make money, you would be better off to choose another company.


Hourly rate is fair


Not enough work

Amazing place to work love the atmosphere

I have been working at Caron for a year and a half now and this is the best place I have ever worked so far and exciting company to work for great atmosphere.Coworkers are very kind and friendly and if you need any assistance they are always ready and willing to help you. My supervisor and lead-hands in the washbay are very professional and considerate. Lots of opportunities available in the company for personal growth. I would recommend this company to anyone applying.


Good benefits, amazing peers, fun environment


No cons

Good & best company and very friendly around you

I have been working at Caron for almost 2 years now and it’s a good place to work. My Supervisor and lead-hands in the Washbay are very helpful and pleasant to work with. There is a lot of new things to learn about safety procedures, how to work with trucks, trailers and other heavy equipment vehicles. Everyone is given a chance to grow within company and lot opportunity. Great benefits and RRSP.

Stay away! Do not work here

Management don’t care about the drivers. The “Routes” or “Lanes” are pre-calculate, if you take longer then that’s on your dime. The harsh chemicals is very bad on your body since the trailers have no baffles in them. Can complain about management to HR but nothing gets settled or dealt with.


Ok equipment, not great. Freeze in summer


Long hours, no family time

Good company, terrible management

Management in the washbay is terrible. Everyone wants to be the boss, not just the lead hands. Supervisors like playing favorites. If you're not a bootlicker, don't think about working here.


Good work/life balance


Toxic workplace

Good money and decent maintained equipment

It’s a great place to work overall. The trucks are little underpowered but overall maintained very well. No slip seating. They fill your hours and decent amount of home time.

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

Fast paced. No time for anything else.

I had a bad experience with this company. My manager was very poor at communication. I really should have transferred to head office as I was offered a position from the beginning. I regret not taking it.


Free lunches


Long hours.

I do not recommend this job to anyone

There are a few good things about Caron, like they have their own mechanics and also a washbay. They have assigned trucks and your own parking stall. The pay is fair and for the most part I enjoyed working there. However, every time I had an issue, the manager would show me the door and say, if you don’t like it here then leave. I tried to contact HR But was ignored completely! I found my work/life balance was compromised and dispatch to be arrogant. I STRONGLY do not recommend this company and neither do alot of their drivers, but there not alot who can afford to quit.

Best Company I've worked for

I loved my time as a dispatcher in Medicine Hat. My co worker was really great to work with and for the most part the drivers were great. I would still be working for Caron had they not shut the Medicine Hat Office down.

Busy place with lots of work. Make good money if you like working

Good place to work if you like working. Equipment is well kept, management is friendly. Expect a lot of online orientation’s (50+) and in house training.


Steady work Good pay


Don’t expect to be home often. Asked to work days off often.

Good place to work, good environment

Worked there as an apprentice mechanic, good group of mechanics knowledgeable, some can be hard to deal with but that’s how she goes. Management is good if you need time off, welders are nice guys too. Expect lots of tanker type trailer work, as 75% of the fleet is chemical based.


Good management, smart group of guys


rotating days and nights

Consistent work, limited growth

Consistent work but limited opportunities for growth. Supervisor is fair and honest offering opportunities to cross train just not many opportunities to climb. Low turn over means there is only opportunity if someone leaves.

The revolving door of Caron

Welcome to the company that promises everything but once you are here they deliver nothing. You will be promised a dedicated unit but you’ll end up slip seating while others drive your unit. Your paycheque will always be short and you won’t get paid for extra hours outside of your run, which is on a load rate not hourly. You will get every second weekend off but when you finish your load late Friday night and have to start shift at 4am on Monday it doesn’t leave much of a free weekend. There is a reason why they are constantly hiring and have the lowest driver moral I’ve ever seen. The revolving door of Caron seems to be spinning quicker this year as so many long time drivers are leaving and the new drivers only stay a short time it’s perplexing why they haven’t changed their ways or management, but don’t fall victim to them and look elsewhere for employment.
