The new owners made it more stressful
It was a family atmosphere at Dicom before an investment company bought the computer. It was downhill from there. The started firing and laying people off.

Environnement de travail instable.
Une énorme faille au niveau des opérations qui pouvait être corriger par l'embauche de personnes qualifiés au niveau de la gestion du personnel administratif. Sur le ''plancher'' Une belle équipe de cariste et de manutentionnaire dévoué, mais mal dirigé. Un manque de Leadership le temps de mon embauche donc.. Possiblement amélioré depuis... Harmonisation des méthode de travail inexistant.. Possiblement amélioré depuis.. Je ne cache cependant pas que Dicom m'a appris beaucoup au niveau des opérations donc... Je recommande l'entreprise pour beaucoup d'expérience pertinente...
Pros
Opération, logistiques, service client.
Cons
Aucun soutien Aux niveaux des opérations. (dans l'année 2018 (Je précises))

The most easiest job
Good starter job for a single individual. Not the best suitable income for the area cost of living in Brampton is too high for that paying job but overall great company and to work for.

Worse management
Worked there for two month and quit before I lose my sanity
In the beginning I had interview with two guys who seemed to have been there for a while and they were very respectful and knew of them became my manager but a week after he "quit" with his wife suddenly

And I ended up with a YOUNG INEXPERIENCED chick with no communication skills , who takes an awful numbers of smoke breaks instead of learning how to operate a forklift and help us

I'm an army veteran , I was in battlefields when she was home playing with barbie and coloring, I would not accept to be called from far away like a dog

One of the things she said to me "there is always things to be done you can always grab a broom and start sweeping the trailers"

I didn't have any training on how they like things to be done so all I was getting is remarks instead of coaching and being yelled at by people who thinks they are managers

The work schedule always changes depending on their needs without taking In consideration the employees quality of life

They claim it's a they are like family but all I see is lord's and slaves

There is supervisor(who used to be a truck driver) who thinks he is an executive so its beneath him to say hello when he passes by employees or just non quebecer employees if you catch my drift

Stay away from this place if you have an ounce of self respect

Great job
Contract driver, I enjoy everyday and my days fly by. I enjoy all my customers and interacting with them. This is a fun environment to work with. Driving in the winter storms kinda sucked but the company never sends you out if it's too bad outside.

Horrible
I have never seen or been part of such a joke of a company. Poor planning They had no concept of the more freight got moved the greater chances for damages. . Some of the people ok alot of them are brutal and lazy and potentially violent. Made complaint to manager .My last words surprised that nobody killed by by forklift or a fight . 8 days later someone hit by forklift and a fight broke out

intersting place with good management
Overall Dicom was a fairly average workplace with its ups and downs with mainly forklift drivers. Management was pretty good with managing its workload among all individuals.

Very cool coworkers
Your coworkers are the best part of the job. Long hours and days and it helps if you are somewhat fit as there is a lot of walking and movement involved

Overworked
You end up doing the job of 2 or 3 people. And the way they thank you for this is by constantly pushing for you to do more but pay you less. The company is only focused on profits

Great place to work
Good company to work for. Friendly management and fellow employees. Pay is ok. Lots of positive changes since being bought out by GLS. Quite a laid back work load. Not high stress. Terminal manager has a heart and listens to your concerns and follows them up with action. The hours are a little long for drivers, but hey that’s trucking. Trucks are ok. Disc brakes on mostly all of their equipment, which is a plus when going through truck scales

ok place to work
not the best place to work, a ton of drama but you are always busy. Could definitely pay better. They have high turn around, and some not nice people to work with.

No job security.
This company hires people to work on the docks who have no knowledge of the trucking industry, then they advance to lower management & it ticks off the drivers. This is one of the reasons why I resigned.

About Dicom
Dicom Transportation is a company that transports many products. For me this job taught me a lot about the transportation industry and how things work. I would recommend many people to work here as it is a good job, it can be stressful at times but the team works hard to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible. The most enjoyable part of this job is meeting new people.

Extremely lenient
The express line is quite rough, however, I believe if you're willing enough, the job is pretty simple. The management is really chilled and laid back if you do your job well enough.

Great place to work... with some drawbacks
Second tour of duty at Dicom, and have worked at various levels from driver, right up to director. Dicom does believe in promotion from within, but it’s up to you how far up the food chain you want to go. Positions are not posted on a board in the lunchroom, you have to go to the company website and apply from within.
Management does have high expectations, but not unreasonable. Work do you job and do it safely and you’ll have no issues.
