Bad management was a big issue. There was a good team of heavy duty techs. But was told they would hold door open for us. All we were asking for a little bit of raise since trailers from across Canada were coming to the shop

Management is running the company to the ground. They hire incompetent team lead and play a lot of favorism. I went through 10 or more managers in less than two yrs I that I worked there!
Pros
Relatively slow at time
Cons
No raise, start early in the morning and no room to grow

This company hired me as a foreigner (USA) under the old Harper government TFW program. I had very steady work between Vancouver and most of the midwest in Canada, but loads to the GTA were sometimes available. Regional work and teams are also used. I later transferred to the US division, which is also steady with work. If you like to keep going, this company is a good one.

Management promises you advancement/pay/increased pay but everything is false.
Terminal manager will promise employees things that are against company policy, as office staff you are expected to work 9.5 hours daily when you are only paid 8 hours, no breaks, drivers are being sent home because dispatch doesn't like them. I would think twice before working there, if you are making the decision to work there - make sure you have everything in writing BEFORE signing anything. DO NOT trust anyone there.

It was a very enjoyable experience. I had to quit to move to a different province or else I wouldnt have left. If I had the opportunity to go back I would in a heartbeat.

The work can be challenging, but they are willing to teach you the skills required to get the job done. My experiences with the management was that if you had proven yourself, then they would always have your back and support you against any opposition. Coworkers and managers would joke around and create a relaxed atmosphere

The company cares nothing for its employees we are expendable. multiple safety violations are ignored by managers and company owners.

If you can work anywhere else take that job first.

I would show up everyday for work and not know what kind of day it would be until I assessed the manager mood. Many times I'd come into work and my desk would be filled. I'd have to sit in a chair until it became available. It was an open floor plan and noisy and not much constructive help from the management. They have a high volume of turn over there.
Pros
Paid decent.
Cons
If you got stuck at work for any reason you did not get paid or get time in leui, they didn't have proper desks and space for employees, they were not understanding of things in life like funerals even.

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.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

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!
Pros
Hour lunch break
Cons
Terrible management

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.
Pros
Friendly staff outside of management.
Cons
Dead end in every way.
