it was all business
I would leave from Cambridge On on my dedicated run to the greater Detroit area to unload and reload then return to Cambridge. I learned to help others as much as possible and it was always reciprocated. The culture here was fun and laid back. Waiting to cross the border at Sarnia ON/Port Huron MI. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting and interacting with new people on a daily basis.

its ok
Protrans is under the Irving Group which is great but they like things done the "Irving" way. That may or may not be for you. Small space, office of 3/4 people. Terrible pay.

Most loved job ever
I truly loved that job and would have done it till retirement. Great staff, great team effort, great supervisor, trainor, co-workers, ect. We often had staff events, food brought in and paid for by company. The work itself was very interesting and challenging. Room to grow inside the company. Was truly a great job!! One issue, no work -life balance. A lot of overtime!

Established and Respected Company
Protrans is backed by a long-standing, successful and thriving enterprise. The ownership is supportive and provides the tools needed for success. The internal staffing positions are reasonably compensated, and the company provides a decent work/life balance. Some of the systems and operating procedures are antiquated and in need of updating or revamping. It's a work in progress. A new generation of directors is overseeing a technological and philosophical revolution within the company. Good things are happening. Overall, a very good employer!

Productive workplace
Work was pleasant, not too fast paced.
I learned about payroll among other things.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with every day.

Nice place to work
It is nice place to work. People are friendly. It is hard at the beginning to work at night shifts, but after some time you used to this. Management is good and appreciates employees. I like the opportunity to have extra shifts, or to take day off when you need it.

Poor placement outfit for drivers
This was a placement outfit for drivers who couldn't or wouldn't find an trucking firm.
They had total control where they would send drivers. Usually some less reputable companies.

They would take a cut of what they charged the trucking company and pay the driver the rest, most of the time I had no idea of how to base my pay rate.
Pros
A way to break into trucking as a profession.
Cons
Poor pay. Poor conditions

The pros and cons of protrans
The work at protrans is a 12 hour shift which usually consists of simple repetitive tasks.
The negative part is that sometimes, your shifts get cancelled for no reason, especially when you are part time.

I spent a whole month without working because my shifts were cancelled.

The good thing is that there are 3 paid breaks of 30 minutes.

Positive working environment
I work 12 hour days at master packaging. I do four on and four off, having the four days off is nice but it would be nice to accumulate vacation. I work on a production line. I’ve learned most of the stations at master packaging. They are good managers and good people to work with.

I enjoyed it for what it is.
Every week you get a schedule for where you are to work. The work is easy and does not demand much heavy lifting (albeit some exceptions). You must coordinate as a team at some areas to successfully put out a finished product so you must be a good team player. Management were pretty nice and would frequently check in with us to see how we're doing. This is a full 12 hour shift (at my position) so you shouldn't expect a solid work/life balance.
Pros
frequent breaks
Cons
long hours
