Not great for drivers
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON8 December 2018
No communication from dispatch just take the load then your on your own. Company dosen't want any input for improvement or new ideas from drivers very old school. No updates on anything. Including new work. Equipment is newer but really not maintained as well as it should be. Pay is low average. Recruiter just hires drivers tells you what you want to hear but, there is no Driver support. Pretty much no information on anything! Can't really rate CEO don't know who it is.
Pros
Nice drivers room
Cons
Just drive the truck don't ask questions

Welcoming and positive environment
Traffic Control Person (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON9 July 2015
The day started at 5:00 am, my coworkers and I would go into the warehouse to get our safety vests, stop signs and walkie talkies. We then would go to our stations (one at the back of the warehouse, two out front on the street, one per side of the road and one on standby) to set up our gear. We would rotate stations every hour or so and the person on break would go get everyone a coffee.
Something I learned in this workplace was that as long as you are respectful the other workers will listen to you equally; this was important since communication in this job was key to avoiding head on collisions between vehicles in the driveway.
