good company to work for,lots of work,good working environment. ran as a single driver. Company is very family oriented. bonuses and company paid uniforms,driver appreciation every year. terminals have showers and driver lounges. but lacking in professionalism some managers,especially line haul dept.
Midland is an Irving company and therefore has a different culture to get used to, however while they expect a high work standard they are very clear on expectations. The benefits are great as well as having employee appreciation days, holiday dinner etc. The pay is a little on the low side for the type of job and in the area, but the benefits are really stellar. I would recommend it as a work place.
When I started the culture was driven by safety and respect. Upper management were in touch with the superior quality service within the the departments, however in recent years middle management hides a lot from them so their department looks good. The employee surveys are drilled down so as to be able to determine who is the person submitting and thus stifles anonymity. Unless you want to slowly have the life sucked out of you by micro managers stay away.
Immature managers and no accountability for them.
Great management, great work environment, great perks to the whole JDI co-orporation. The hours are awesome (I worked at the head office so I had evenings and weekends off). I excelled really quickly because I was dedicated and ambitious, and the company gave me all the training I required in order to advance me. Great place, best job I've had thus far. Sad to leave.
High in demand, fast-paced periods that cause some people to stress and bring down the vibe.
I have never seen before management that puts people down so much. Tell you what you want to hear and do something completely different. If you voice your concerns you are retiated against. In my past I have learned how to deal with managers like this but in this situation I have no idea. When asked to do a job, I am not given all the tools or information to do the job.....when a mistake happens I got repremanded.
learn what not to do
Company owned by the Irving Family in New Brunswick since 1970. (ie: New Brunswick's a Company town and Irving is the Company) Regional carrier servicing many of the Irving owned companies in the region. Services Michelin Tire plants in Nova Scotia and South Carolina with team trucks requiring, on average, 8 days per trip with only 2 days home between the trips; a very poor balance. Dedicated and responsible drivers to work with.
great management..very well organized...always there when were needed..given tasks that would create challenges
sleeping in truck
I had the bulk of the PO filing to do each morning, I worked in an accounts payable department and was their research clerk. I would email Montreal and complete their list of jobs for the day, as well as, helping with cheque runs. I answered inquiries on the phone and would then go to the folder of cheques to see if any of these could be released. I was responsible for releasing daily cheques, as well as, preparing larger "emergency" cheques and taking these to the comptrollers to have them signed; this would occasionally require me to go to the President for his signature. I would spend a portion of my day in the basement "dungeon" sorting through copies of returned cheques and preforming a large ten year inquiry. I had to prepare bank reconciliations and perform general ledger postings. I helped with month end computer reporting. This was different then what I had experienced as we had to take all required breaks and they did not want anyone working through their breaks or staying late to work on unfinished work. I wish this position could have continued, however, the Irving Oil Company is affiliated with numerous others and when the dominos fall in one company, it travels down to the last hired is the first to go.
Employee incentive programs, great breaks, quiet environment to concentrate.
too many affiliated companies, favouritism
8:30am to 5pm work day.I have learned my valuable skills about how to deal with customers in good situations and also in some of the negative ones.All the co-workers and management are very positive and fun people to work.Most enjoyable part of the job was is the people and environment.The hardest part would be the endless amount of things to learn but that is also one of the enjoyable parts.
