Sales (Former Employee) – Ontario – 25 February 2018
good place to work, pay is not the best compared to other similar companies, but if you manage your money well it will pay off the bills. The people at work are the hardest to work with because they think they can do what ever they want and run the place however they want, and treat others how ever they feel like.
Key Account Manager (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 6 February 2018
A typical day at work would be: Meetings, then more meeting, then meetings about more meetings. One department dose not know what the other is doing, The door is always revolving so don't bother making friends at work. Prepare to be micro managed!
Driver (Current Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 4 February 2018
Team driving on dedicated route....work is somewhat steady, you will get miles. but dispatchers will push for more and call during your downtime to get you to go back OTR earlier. Some managers are not very helpful or great at trying to problem solve and are difficvult to relate to. They say there is no seniority policy but there is it is an unspoken thing and senior drivers can take your route at anytime even when you are compelting all task on time and properly with no problems.
Driver (Former Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 29 January 2018
Worked with this company for a few years. Was ok in the beginning but soon realized I was just another number. Wage was very low, no appreciation and lots of empty promises. Many other drivers had already left and continued to leave after I did. Unfortunately due to incompetent management Challenger is losing many long term, good drivers. Work/ life balance is non-existent. Top out Wage is still at the bottom for the industry. This place is in trouble! RUN don't walk!!!!!
Great Place to Work! Excellent People to deal with
Driver (Current Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 10 January 2018
Challenger is a great place to work, the training program is top notch, and they focus on driver development. The staff are great to work for, they are always help resolve issues in a timely manner. Overall, I would recommend any driver to work for this company.
Truck driver (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 25 September 2017
one of the best companies I ever worked for, how ever being gone for a week at a time is not for me, and they didn't have work at that time for me to do so I would be home every day there was a 2yr waiting list for that work. However their training I received as new driver I found very valuable and felt privileged to have worked there.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 17 July 2017
Not sure how some people got into leadership roles but employees are wonderful, many social activities and everyone works hard to achieve goals. Great building, new equipment and great IT department. Apart from the odd few in senior roles , its a very good place to work
Drivers not treated with respect and viewed as such
Professional Driver Trainer (Current Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 17 June 2017
Low pay no retirement plan. Company pushed drivers to max hours and time does not respect home life. The load must be delivered putting safety aside dispatch will falsify documents to get load delivered driver must be diligent to catch this or will end up with fines. Job starts off good with recruiting and training they tell you all the good stuff make you feel as if your in the perfect world after that you are tossed to the wolves(dispatch and driver managers) where it is the total opposite. If you run team open board you get mileage if you run single they say they guarantee 5000 miles biweekly you only get that if you do Toyota otherwise be prepared to just sit and wait as all priority is given to teams. Company does not care about drivers will ask you to do unsafe practices to get load delivered always the drivers fault and their safety department is a joke. Company only cares about itself very very high turnover
