I have worked there for 10 years, driving their Supertruck to North nightly. They have too much training and test. Everything has to be done in time. They was like a correctional center in Mississauga terminal.
Pros
Paycheck is on time.
Cons
Too much supervisor who didn't known nothing about the job.

Only managed to make it 10 months. Pay was steadily decreasing.with job demand doubled. They don't care about employees only numbers. Do not work here you are more valuable to someone else .

As this is a branch, managers are only middle managers with a complex and by-the-seat-of-your-pants policies. Depending on their mood is the determining factor for a solutions outcome and you could be yelled at for a magnitude of reasons, some including manager's own stupidity with remembering they were the ones implementing certain procedures. You'll regularly have the manager call you random degrading and insulting things to your face and certainly behind your back in front of other employees. You'll regularly have yelling matches between coworkers as managers pit each other against the next. It is generally a bad work culture, bad work environment and poor work life balance. Training is very straight forward (and extreamly in depth, hours on hours of training to complete) and any procedure is set out by head office, but you'll never have time or the opportunity to do any of it, manager will also come after you over this (they will even suggest after working a 10 hours shift to go home and work on the training or maybe even over your weekend) as they are rated on a vast number of things and will not hold back making sure you know of a mistake, but have a hard time making efforts to find a solution to correct the issues.
Pros
Decent money with the trade off of long hours, job security as they can't find many people to replace you
Cons
Long hours, bad work culture, angry managers

Job title - Spareboard Regional HWY Driver Fast paced, supportive, consistent and a safety conscious environment with advancement opportunities available if you seek them. Enjoy working with Manitoulin through Drakkar. Every night is an adventure and dispatchers support you on a personal and a professional level. No forced dispatch.
Pros
Advanced opportunities, variety of work/runs, safety conscious environment, driver training/re-training, in house garage/weight scale, well maintained equipment, strict adherence to log maintenance, no shady business expected of drivers.
Cons
Slip seating. Work-life balance can be a bit off but if you want to make money, this is the place to be.

Good pay when you get work but not a lot of support from dispatch and management. It’s a decent place to work if you are content being just a number and being treated as such.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Long hours, poor management

The job itself was fairly standard. As a floater driver you had to operate any piece of equipment and load as assigned. The nice part was that sometimes you would be sent home early but would still be paid a minimum of 8 hrs. The only wrinkle was dealing with the dock who would finish loading late and then push you to get moving to meet set departure times that have to be met as a KPI.
Pros
Decent equipment, good training, decent hours, fair pay
Cons
They should explain their payroll process better.

Terrible place to work. There is no professionalism, employees are swearing, shouting at drivers. No resources for proper training not enough time given to train properly. Warehouse is understaffed and the Office team has no support. If you ask a question you are given attitude. When there are problems you are left to drown with no support. Management doesn't know what's going on. Then they start the blaming game... They lie about promotions, breach contracts, and just use you. THIS COMPANY DOESN'T CARE ABOUT IT'S EMPLOYEES!!! Never work here!
Pros
Lots to learn
Cons
Highly Stressful

I had a good co-worker that really helped me to be successful at what I did there. As a contractor, I was treated very respectfully and felt like I am part of the team.
Pros

Fast pace and you really need to know your stuff to be successful there

People you work with are always verbally abusive and will not help you succeed when you have a question they tell you to figure it out. You're expected to memorize every town in canada where items get shipped in weeks And good luck going to management because they sweep things under the rug ! I'm so glad I quit !

I enjoyed working at Manitoulin. Pay was pretty good to make good living. I was satisfied with what I was doing as a driver in the company. I would recommend anyone who actually like to work and keep his business to his own. Don't get into politics or may be listen to everyone but do yours.
