Good job if you like to work alone
Broker...owner operator (Current Employee) –  Kelowna, BC13 March 2018
In a typical day you'd be required to hook your tractor to an assigned trailer and deliver it to city on manifest. All night driving so no interaction with any management. Hardest part of job is the winter weather conditions and the best part would be the independence that comes with working alone
Pros
No early mornings
Cons
Very long hours.

Disruptive and worse place
Owner/Operator (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON4 January 2018
No worth loads for US. You will not get paid your waiting time. If delivery time 6 am Load pick up Time by 6 pm without any pay for such waiting. Only you will be forced to cover Pennsylvania loads. Waste of your time, no one a appreciate your work, no one thinks for company benefits every one wants to now your head in front of them, lot of bullshits . Forced to give them one star. Zero star for them.
Pros
For Christmas Pay 35 dollars
Cons
You paid donations no receipt

Rude managerment and co-workers.. steady hours
Administrative Appointment Clerk (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB21 September 2017
Overall not the bets job, only good part about it was the hours. People were rude and not inviting. Made it feel like you were back in high school. During its slow months time seems to stretch on forever. No matter how good of a job you do they don't give you any credit.
Pros
steady hours.
Cons
mangagement isn't good, co-workers are rude and childish.

Semi productive workplace, with room for improving service.
account manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB4 January 2016
As an Account Manager in Freight, it was great to get out there and really learn about the multiple industries clients service, and build out tailored solutions. Flexibility in the logistics industry made it easy to compile options for clients, IE multiple solutions to choose from to get the desired result to earn business.

I learned the complete in / outs of the logistics business, but more importantly that customer service is key in defining the future path a business will take; regardless of the industry.

Management was phenomenal in certain departments, however was or seemed to be continuously changing, which sometimes caused confusion. Each sector maintained a different procedure for getting things done, which often made cohesion between terminals / departments extremely difficult.

The most enjoyable part of my job was listening, and building client relationships. That was ultimately the fundamental part of what I did, and the reason I was successful. Listening, understanding & executing strategies with Clients made this job fun.
Pros
Multiple service capabilities, positive customer engagement
Cons
long hours, little room for improvement ideas in management

Environnement de travail agréable
commis de bureau (Former Employee) –  Lachine, Montréal15 October 2015
Une journée de travail typique comportait plusieurs différentes fonctions. Entre autre, l'entrer de donner, la prise d'appel, être en communication constante avec les chauffeurs (système de radio walky talky)

J'ai grandement apprécié mon expérience auprès de cette équipe part le fait que j'ai eu plusieurs opportunités de développement auprès de l'équipe. J'ai beaucoup apprécié l'aspect de l'esprit d'équipe très familiale entre employés et employeurs.
Pros
taches très variées
