Fine

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Reasonable place to work, good staff, drug test for drivers, work is physical but within reason. Forklift experience is a big help. Overall not a bad place

Just ok

The pay is kinda low for today's standards and I don't feel any motivation to try and move up in this company. I barely get feedback on anything other than if I take a break a few minutes early

High stress, low respect, high pay

Worked for them for 20 years. The pay was great but I felt like I was just a number with no respect at all. It didn’t get much closer to mental abuse than what I experienced over the years.

Pros

Great pay

Cons

Stress and they treat you horrible

Dangerous

There is zero safety here and its only a matter of time before someone gets very seriously hurt.Operators watch out for wandering folk walking in between skids.

Very Stressful place to work.!!

Managers have Preference over people, lots of Favoritism.! Supervisors will throw you Under the Bus even though they made the Call. Lots of Arrogance.

A very Good Company

It's a very good company to work for, only problem is very few scheduled runs are available and most of the runs are at night or on weekends .overall trailers are well taken care of.All the trucks are run by the owner operators .

Poor workplace, poor management, you will not be respected there.

High turnover, won't hire. false promises, the ones that don't work and and complain are the ones that move up. Poor management. You will not be respected there. They make you feel like you are replaceable.

Productive and fun workplace !!

Compared to other companies in other provinces I would say Day & Ross is a better workplace. The company takes care of its employees with a good package of benefits and training in all kinds of job-related skills. There is friendly workplace culture. all people respect each other and help when they need it. management is fair& nice and gives the same treatment to everyone. Day & Ross is a great place to start the future.

Stressful, Poor/unsafe working conditions, Not for everyone

Typical day as a dock worker hear involves using a forklift to unload and load trailers and paperwork to help you find the location of everything your loading and where you are putting unloaded freight. It can be fun and laid back at times when it's not busy and things are going smooth (Very Rare). Transportation of Dangerous goods and forklift training is required by law and the company provided me with 0 of this training. I had a valid forklift ticket prior to starting here although they are still required (oddly) by law to train you and have records of that training on file.The facility is too small for the amount of freight coming through and therefor it is a challenge to safely maneuver sit down propane forklifts without hitting or damaging customer freight. I had experienced constant near misses with other employees constantly walking in front of or behind moving equipment. This place is a safety hazard, with 90% of the docks not functional and doors always broken and nothing gets repaired, no Fire extinguishers, No First Aid, No Eye wash station, Garbage and damaged freight everywhere. Be prepared to clean out your nose daily. If you like working with technology and software from the early 1990's this place is for you.Stress levels run high here, People never put freight they have moved back to where it's supposed to be and this makes it a nightmare to find things, especially when a customer is waiting for pickup. I Swear I was expected to do everything at once sometimes, and could never focus on properly getting my main job done in a timely manner. I always dealt -
