Switch crew Supervisor (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 2 June 2018
Spent 5 years working with I.B.S. In Fort Mac, started when there was only 6 people working in the yard , and we loaded coke cars on a traveler system. Then the yard went from 6 to about 30 some people in under a year and it was organized chaos but i loved it and wish i never quit. #SWITCHLIFE#. Over!!!
Get to play with trains, and run a big loader to feed a big bowl.
Loader (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 30 May 2018
Bullied, harassed and threatened with job loss on almost a daily basis. Poor, unqualified management both upper and lower. Some employees are great to work with but, most are very lazy. Only good days are when the bipolar manager likes you and targets someone else. HR takes nothing serious or confidentially and you are on your own.
Expectations are high and only sometimes recognized by Senior Management. Very little training provided initially, mostly a learn as you go basis as there are too many different scenarios to train for. Good opportunity to move if you are liked by Senior Management, and advancement usually happens fast if its going to happen at all.
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Ft.Saskatchewan – 29 August 2016
was treated unfair. Went in, did my work then went home. Was never given appraisal, on ridiculed. The customers were great. The hardest part of the job was doing my best, but never seen by others. Best part of the job was the benefits and going home at the end of the day.
Data entry/ Railcar Logistics (Current Employee) – Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON – 20 September 2015
I loved my actual job. I made sure all of the proper paperwork was in place for the railcars coming into the terminals. I had relationships with the terminal employees and the customers that provided me with documentation.
