Formula Powell had fantastic morale and was a great place to work with amazing employees. That all changed years ago. Employees used to be shown lots of appreciation through good pay and regular bonuses. Perks like safety bonuses, profit sharing, RRSP program, Christmas bonuses, gift cards, lots of promotional clothing and schwag, management training, branch bbq’s and catered lunches every couple weeks, personal wellness benefits, fuel cards, vehicle allowances, overtime pay for overnight call-outs, etc., were common, but no longer exist. All bonus money is kept to be distributed only amongst management. Upper management has 50+ years combined working at Formula Powell and still has no idea how to run a trucking company, let alone a trucking company in the energy service sector. Lots of bosses here to tell you what to do and write you up, but not provide guidance or support. Management would rather take care of themselves than their customers or workers. Avoid this toxic environment for your own good!
Decent water cooler and one smelly microwave for too many people to share.
Working hard so your boss’s boss can make a ton of money. Good managers are fired.
