Wonderful sales manager, good training, good technology. Overall I enjoyed my work there. Weekly national sales meetings were a bit odd but that their culture.
Sales job completely a hunter role. No existing clients
Wouldn’t recommend to anyone with a heart beat. Management doesn’t give a rats behind about their employees. If you don’t mind not being paid fairly or on time, this is the place for you. They go out of their way to not pay benefits. They will hire you as contract to avoid giving you benefits.
Once upon a time this was a great company, then they IPO'ed and it was all down hill from there. They started buying up smaller companies without adding additional staff, worked the finance department into the ground, worked the border staff into stress leave and worked the office staff into horrible morale. The management (for the most part) do not care about you. This is because they have goals to reach to ensure they receive their Management Incentive (their bonus) while the peons earn an Employee Incentive (about $300). It's not a great place to work. It's rigid and doesn't offer much in the way of bonuses, advancement or even fun.
I’ve been with Livingston for 6 years and have not received a raise. As the top performer on my team of 5 members None of us received any annual salary bonuses or Increases over 6 years. The management is just an absolute disgrace to Canada by letting American companies treat Canadians this way especially when they refuse to let a person in a wheelchair work from home when their job duties can be done 100 percent virtually
overall the job is exactly what i expected, outdoors, physical, handling a variety of vehicles on and off the train railcars in all weather conditions.
great people, cool vehicles of all sorts
low salary compared to other companies within the industry

I learned so much about the procedures in shipping merchendice across the border.The management their was very tuff an unforgiving.the work culture was very casual.The hardest part of the job was knowing all the information that you have to posess to compleat your daily tasks.

Stay away!, their locations are the worst area to work at. Managers are all connected and are very miserable and unprofessional!. Culture is very poor with no career advancement. The directors really don't care about their employees, and their is a lack of diversity in the leadership pool. NO AUDIT and NO structure in any department. Highest turnaround, it's not what you know but who you know.
Trying to do your job every day with upper management underminding everything that you do is not healthy. Even if you have more knowledge than them and can help things go smoother they refuse to listen to you. This is the worst mistake that I ever made I would have been better off sweeping a floor at a fast food restaurant. Less stress.
Imagine working your behind off with zero direction and thrown into a boiling pot of manure with a director that cares so little about you that he fires you 2 weeks before Christmas and 4 days before your probationary period is over so they don’t have to pay benefits. Culture is nonexistent with the director and you’re just someone he can push through during the busy times. You’re only as good as he wants you to be. I don’t recommend working here in this role if you have a family. It will not last if the branch manager isn’t there to properly train you and the director doesn’t care. I hope reads this so he realizes it
It is a fun work place with many sports golf etc table tennis The hardest part of the job is meeting deadline of time end of the month report. Every one is friendly it feels like family the team leaders and the coordinators well taking care of . The company is the main focus not to let entries go in to storage getting the work done on time.
free lunches etc
It's a pretty good place to work. Some of the people are super welcoming and friendly. The lack of communication is a serious problem tho and they overwork you. The peak times where it is the busiest they have you working alone, it's nice because time goes by sorta fast but, it's extremely stressful and it kind of seems like going above and beyond is never good enough. Other than that it's a good place to gain experience, to learn how to handle stressful situations, and to learn how to deal with confrontation/angry customers/people.
Very busy at all times and required additional overtime to keep on top of the work load. My supervisor was exceptional to work with as she assisted with employees to help when needed.
