Driver/Operator (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 9 December 2018
Junk equipment,lousy management and you’re treated like an expendable piece of meat. This is pretty much as bad as the trucking industry gets on all points so unless you’re really really desperate I wouldn’t bother.
Administrator (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 21 November 2018
For the time I was working for the company, there was nothing but yelling and frustration between managers and employees. Coworkers weren’t respected from managers and it felt like we were in prison. I was only trained by the other employees. I would not recommend this place to ANYONE!
Dock Worker (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 26 October 2018
Dock works get along for the most part, management seems to have their hands tied by the owners to be able to move the company forwards as the Siemens brothers don’t want to spend a dime they don’t have too. Lacking basic equipment to safely load trailers. Warehouse is disgustingly dirty. Absolutely no regular maintenance is done. Everything is outdated including, trailers, forklifts, tractors. It’s a good “inbetween jobs” job. Turn over rate is through the roof. Wage isn’t bad, when they don’t short change you.
Driver/Delivery (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 4 October 2018
Pay was terrible, hours were extremely erratic, old equipment, work wasn't great. Safety was nice, and my dispatcher was pretty good. But when I compared hours worked to pay cheques, I was averaging $16 an hour. Some days you start 12 hour shifts at 6 am, some days you start 12 hour shifts at 6 pm. Avoid this company.
Office Administrator Assistant (Current Employee) – British Columbia – 17 September 2018
A seriously awful place to work. Head office is garbage. Thankless employers who can't be happy with anything and always want more. If you had a choice between working at Kindersley and slamming your head into a wall, take the wall. Much more rewarding.
Administrative (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 7 July 2018
The only place I’ve ever worked that seemed to plan and expect to dispose of people as opposed to working to make it a good place to be. Very strict, very corporate. Some people thrive on that type of environment but I know that when I went home at the end of each day it felt like a large relief.
Not sure if it’s still a “policy” of theirs, but ladies were expected to wear hosiery to cover any exposed skin. Therefore, if you wore sandals you would also need to wear nylons of some sort because god forbid someone saw the skin on your feet.
Customer service representative (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 12 June 2018
Incompetent management, indiscret Human Resources department, no work life balance. They have no structured pay scale so the person sitting next to you might have started at a significantly higher salary for the same job. You literally cannot ask for a day off (even without pay) in your first year and unless you have kids, you can’t negotiate your shift whatsoever. You CANNOT transfer to other sister companies. You have to quit one first and cross your fingers. NO training and a mentality of “you’ll just know” runs rampant. No SOP’s for any task your asked to perform and prepare to be micromanaged in EVERY e-mail you send and phone call you make. You also can’t drink the tap water, but they won’t tell you that for months.
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 16 April 2018
Terrible managers and or puppets to inexperienced managers at head office. Buildings are old and dirty. Lack of accountability. Moral is low due to poor management. No pay for extra work. Overwhelm you you extra paper work just to get paid for breakdown/ tire repairs etc..they put profits ahead of safety for their people. Nickel and dime pay shortages have opposite effect of what they want. Just makes people angry.
Current employee (Current Employee) – Canada – 6 February 2018
Exciting times to work for this company. New management has revitalized the building, equipment, inspired and expanded staff in Vancouver, looking to expand and grow the business as a team. Excellent benefits package, and a strong corporate structure to set up any individual to be successful.
Forklift Operator / Dockworker (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 12 April 2017
doesn't care about the employees. unsafe workplace. no regular safety meeting. poor benefits! semi monthly pay which is not good but you don't have a choice! everybody that works in the office are puppets!
great pay, great co-workers but horrible equipment
Truck Driver (Current Employee) – Delta, BC – 7 July 2015
the pay is way above average @ 49.3 cents per mile but the equipment is something to be desired! the hardest part of the job is finding a repair guy to come fix the equipment when it breaks down due to lack of maintenance!!
