Not a bad place to work.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Wasn't a bad place to work. Pay isn't the greatest (typical of the Trucking industry). Management was not bad. Dispatch was decent. Most of the drivers would lead you in the right direction.

Pros

Keep you busy, benefits, decent equipment

Cons

Pay isn't the greatest to start

A great place to work with a great crew to work with. Drivers are more than helpfull also.

I have worked in a lot of shops and Cooney Transport was the best shop I have ever worked in. Our shift (Afternoons) all got along great. It was more of a family atmosphere than a work environment. No matter the job everyone pitched in to help ,if you were busy or not. If you had a special way to perform a task it wasn't kept a secret but was shared with everyone. Management was more than helpfull in our day to day duties.The hardest part of the job was loading my toolbox and saying goodbye when I got layed off.

Pros

Great people to work with

Cons

Not still working there

Mangement Problems

Management (Dispatcher) doesn't care about you, just a person on a paper and are not trained to do the job properly . Says one thing than does another. Choose favourites.

Poor balance of life

If you enjoy cheating a log this is a company to work for if you enjoy working 17-18 hour days this is a company to work for if you enjoy bad benefits this is a company to work for if you enjoy being thrown under the bus this is definitely a company for you hourly wage under 20 an hour I went up from Ottawa to Belleville all they paid was the hotel that didn't pay my mileage and they paid you $50 a day for orientation this company is a joke

Pros

N/a

Cons

Long hours bad pay

Good place to start

Steady runs with good pay Nice equipment Various types of work from van to flatbed and tanker. Good pay with benefits but not fond of the Union and the negativity at the yard

Average pay, poor benefits

Dont waste your time with this company. Benefits after 2 yrs for new hires, unionized. Either flat rate or hourly depends on terminal you work out of, or are hired out of. eg.. driver works out of toronto yard but was hired out of bellville yard = toronto hourly, but bellville flat rate therefore he gets flat rate. O/O run somewhere else.

Pros

none

Cons

too many to list

Rely on the union

Cooney is a great company to work for. Keep your head down though. Someone will always be there trying to get you fired.

Pros

great wages

Cons

will wrongfully terminate you, without warning.
