Fun to be out on the road by yourself

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Once you get past the dusty warehouse part of the job it is not so bad once you are out on the road. Terrible shift and low hours during the warehouse portion though.

I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy.

My experience at Purolator was. Fast paced. Heavy packages. Very unfriendly people working AM dock. Indoor heating wasn't working. Ice form on incoming trailers. Never received a key card to enter the plant. The only nice thing was the boot allowance.

Pros

If you have the experience they require you would do well.

Cons

Constsntly underpaid. Confronted payroll with wage amount 15% lower than what the contract offered.

The managers are brutal liars and thevteamstets are usless.

The managers will invent reasons to fire you and then offer you a position on the dock. They can't get dock workers because the pace is brutal and sometimes impossible. The teamsters are useless.

Good Company

Great co-workers, very hard working people. Team work is great. Very busy place. Good pay, good Management, lots of hours to be had. Very fast paced environment. Dock people work just as hard as the Couriers. Fun Place.

Pros

Good Pay/Lots of hours to work!

Cons

Can be stressful due to face pace and tight deadlines!

Great fellow workers, clueless management.

Fellow drivers are amazing, but you work alone. Management is where the trouble is. Keep forgetting your a human, with a life. Higher then possible expectations, as your sweat is their bonus. It will kill your body in time. Bad knees, backs, ankles are common. Last thing to note, in the summer of 2017 the contract was renegotiated, making it take a year for benefits, and 4 years to top rate.

Pros

Drive by yourself, semi sense of freedom, union

Cons

Long hours, with some horrid management.
