Negative Results Staff (Former Employee) – Ayr, ON – 30 May 2018
In the last year I worked there, they let go of more than 5 people. Regularly ditch employees after their one year contract is up. One person was informed they were let go simply because they aren't well liked. Management gives special preference to their own work-life balance, but if you have kids and are new there, don't expect any sympathy if you're stuck working every evening, weekend, and when your kid is sick. Since working there, I've met a few other people who have had similar experiences. There is a reason this company is ALWAYS ALWAYS HIRING. Their turnover rate is high.
Drug & Alcohol Tech (Current Employee) – Kitchener, On – 17 April 2018
I am a current employee of DriverCheck over 3 years and love my job! It is an energizing place to work, with many learning opportunities. Which shines through with the staff. The co-workers are a great bunch of people. There is always room for advancement. The Supervisors always take the time to speak with you. It is a great open door policy. All training is provided for the different services offered at the clinic. Hours are great Monday-Friday. If you are looking for a dynamic place to work, with fantastic co-workers DCC has it all!! From the owners to my Supervisor-you are treated like family!! It is refreshing to work with a company that is so committed to the well being of their employees. My supervisors and Team Lead have provided me with honest feedback in my reviews. This has allowed me to grow professionally and apply for other positions within the company and that in itself is incredible. DriverCheck has an awesome culture and I am proud to be part of it!
Clinic Technician (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 4 April 2018
Kitchener location is full of nepotism and a passive aggressive team leader that really did not lead by example by any means. Fingerprinting training is a joke as there was lack there of and when mistakes were made, you were to blame. Do yourself a favor and stay away if you know whats best for you. Job description had reception duties, but when I started at the clinic the supervisor told me to not learn reception as they were in the middle of getting one and then had me sit at reception for 2 days, but expected me not to learn it. Wow.
Clinic Staff (Current Employee) – Alberta – 9 November 2017
I am a current employee of a few years. I love my job! DriverCheck is careful to consider personalities in addition to the typical experience and skills etc when hiring, it shows! The owners make a point of trying to make us feel appreciated and part of the family, even as the company has moments of growing pains. For example: I know they made every effort to not lay off staff in the recent economic downturn. I work hard for them because I feel appreciated, consided and cared about. I know I'm not just "a number". The culture is hard to beat! The pay may not be as great as Union run places but to me, the "Bankers" hours are totally worth it! When you first start, the learning curve can be pretty steep but with time, it evens out. After all you get trained on a unique set of skills, that gets your foot in the door in the Occupational Health Testing field , all it costs is your time (already being spent at work) . All the staff I have experienced with training are happy to help and make the transition comfortable. The biggest drawback I've noticed is I don't think notice is given when someone is being let go.
Culture, feeling appreciated, bankers hours, co-workers, unique training, work indoors, refferal$, new paid sick days, benefits
Benefits are out of pocket and limited, no scheduled coffee breaks, mobiles done by clinic staff
Employee (Current Employee) – Ayr, ON – 14 October 2017
the culture is genuine, the management team wants to improve engagement and are certainly taking steps to do that they are INCLUDING the staff in that process which is amazing! I can see how my daily work contributes to the entire organization success, i do feel that i play an important role. We can see they are making a concerted effort to close the gap between Alberta and Ontario.
My supervisors and managers have provided me with honest feedback and allowed me to grow professionally and that in itself is amazing.
The work can be demanding but with all the initiatives, incentives and positive feedback about my performance I want to give it my all. I am proud to work for DriverCheck Inc.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Ayr, ON – 13 October 2017
I love working for this company. The owners are a great family who have made their company succeed and want to see all the employees succeed too. For a small company they have great incentives. They pay $400 to employees who refer other employees. They are flying in all the staff from Alberta to come to the Christmas party in November! The culture is really relaxed, but they do have stressful times when volumes are getting high. There are things that aren't built that need to be but that is all in good time.
Data entry (Former Employee) – Ayr, ON – 24 October 2016
I was hired through a temp agency and had great hope for my position at data entry. It turns out the " trainer" had only been with the company for 2 months and was hired as a trainer!?! I was not supposed to question anything! Fax copies that were to be read were blurred and we were made to guess at the companies and donors. I have never seen a more disorganized and truly poorly run company in my life. They also don't tell you when you start that you will be on call every second Sunday. You will only be paid for the on call if you clock in. So you can sit around all day and not be able to do anything, just in case!
Office administrator & technician (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 September 2015
I worked for this company for over 3 years. There was no room for advancement, constant working outside of normal business hours when it was busy. You were always handed more work, which wasn't part of your job. There was no sick time, benefits you had to pay for. No back up staff when someone was sick. Nothing ever improved with this company, things only got worse. There is no job security, as most of the revenue is based on the oil industry. They have no problem having one staff work alone, and have you running the entire office. Management is terrible.
If you're serious about a career, look else where.
Tech/admin/everything (Former Employee) – Alberta – 2 September 2015
This is a very poor managed company.
Clinic supervisors have zero authority to make any decisions, it's all dictated by head office in Ontario. Alberta employees have no sick days, you are only entitled to vacation after one year. The benefits are terrible, you pay out of pocket for that. There is no room for advancement. They just throw more work at you with no extra pay. You basically do the job of 2 or more people. They say overtime is rare, but that's not the case when it's busy. They put budget over employee safety. There is rarely any staff appreciation, unless you work in Ontario. They ask for input on how to improve things, but no suggestions are ever taken seriously. They sell it as a well run, family oriented company, that's not the case.
If you are looking for a long term stable employer, look else where.
Poorly run, no room for advancement, no staff appreciation
Everything (Former Employee) – Alberta – 10 August 2015
This company sells itself as a well run, family oriented company. They make it seem like they are well established. It has so many problems. Staff turn over is quite high.
Management: Some clinic managers are excellent, however they have no authority to do anything. Everything is dictated from Ontario, some of the clinic managers are rarely in the office Head office is poorly organized.They are based in Ontario, they have no idea what goes on in Alberta They change policy way too frequently They put budget above employee safety Takes months to get an answer on anything, they're always "working on it"
Benefits/time off: Terrible benefits, you pay out of pocket for coverage. It's mandatory unless you have proof of other active coverage You get no sick days (in Alberta) You given minimal vacation time when you are first employed. What you are given is only eligible after one year of employment.
Raises/advancements: They do not give their employees raises There are no advancements You are constantly working outside business hours (even though they sell it to you as very rarely) There is no staff appreciation
Marketing/sales: Poorly run Surrounding businesses do not know what this company is They make unreasonable promises to clients They're more concerned about revenue
Office equipment: Rarely works Out of date Unreliable Office environment is out of date and dirty
Overall, if you like being lied to, over worked and underpaid then sure this is a great place. If you want a company that is well run, and cares about their employees thenmore... you need to look elsewhere.less
Unorganized, over worked, underpaid, no room for advancement
Collection Site Co-ordinator (Current Employee) – Ayr, Ontario – 18 July 2015
I enjoyed my time working at DriverCheck, a good company who cares about their employees. They are understanding and flexible of family time. A very busy atmosphere where I learned a lot about occupational testing for medical services, drug and alcohol testing. I also learned how to prioritize action items. My co-workers were great.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Ayr, ON – 13 August 2013
Working at Drivercheck Inc.was like working with family. All the co-workers and managers were very easy to talk to regarding any problems that had come about whether it was work related or personal. I unfortunately had to leave the company due to a change in circumstances at home and therefore I started working from home.
