Great company!
One of the best trucking company I have had the privilege to work with. Only reason I left was family reasons. Great people, great pay, great equipment.

Their new driver training program is also one of the top 3 in Canada. They go above and beyond for Thier employees.


I guess you can say : "they go the distance"
Pros
New equipment, great pay package options, benefits, great people
Cons
Other people may have different experience than I but to me there were no cons.

Good place to start
Good starting point for a career in driving. Poor wages and nothing to help for a drivers future. Pension, rrsp, etc.
I have a great dedicated Toyota run.

Productive and fun place to work
I'm proud to work at Challenger. They have a great reputation among customers and customs brokers. We have a lot of fun in the office. The hardest part of the job is that it's very demanding and fast paced. It can be stressful at times.

Working at Challenger was a excellent experience. They were kind and friendly and i felt like part of a family. I would recommend working for them .
My experience working with Challenger was great. Dispatch was knowledgable kind and helpful. The owner was present and frequently had barbeques and was available to talk with. Equipment was new and modern. Maitanence was thorough and well managed. I would recommend this company to everyone.

make back up better
Challenger is a well-known company as I can learn systematically to be an excellent truck driver. Although I did not work long time, I have learned many skills and experience.

Long Haul Driver
I worked in the oil patch for many years never any appreciation for working hard in all extremely cold and hot weather.
I come to Challenger and been here almost 11 months and have never looked back. Great office staff in both East and West. Their number one priority is our safety. This company wants you to make as much money as you can but reminding you not to put your family second.

Too much BS
You would think going into a great managed company with an owner that build something from nothing felt more in tune with his core base of the business. Yes the drivers. Somewhere along the path of success the company went from driver friendly to total ridiculous. The review process sucks the life out of the drivers sails, the culture of superiority is ingrained in wasteful technical BS,

Negotiation is key
Typical: Communication with carriers to ensure on time service is being met, continuing to work with carriers to be 100% compliant with Challengers requirements
Learned: How to broker loads and do what is necessary to earn desired margin amounts, how to run intermodal operations, how to negotiate with people

Hardest part: negotiating and calling people out when it something doesn't sound right, im too much of a trusting person

Enjoyable: working with a great bunch of people

They look out for their own
Challenger, on the outside looking in is great but when you start working there, it is horrible. Except for maybe 2 people, everyone else is difficult to work with.

It is a mixed bag.
Company is mindful about safety and invest much in training & re-training of drivers to improve safety.
They also have a functional workshop that do all to keep vehicles in good shape.

Good place to work
A good place to work. People there were friendly and helpful for the most part. The hardest part of this job is the time away from home even though it was only 5-6 days away at a time, it becomes difficult to be away as your children grow.

I would recommend Challenger Motor Freight to anyone interested in a long haul AZ trucking opportunity
I would recommend Challenger Motor Freight to anyone interested in a long haul AZ driving position. Their equipment is newer and well maintained. They have many miles available for van division, temperature controlled division and flat bed.

Good fun place to work
Its a good place to get your foot in the door in the trucking industry. Their training program is top notch and will teach you everything you need to succeed. The team behind you either being your dispatcher, safety team, or training department are always there for you when you need them.
