Great bunch of people
Admin (Current Employee) –  Manitoba1 May 2018
Tank Traders is a growing company that really does have excellent opportunities - they really do promote from within the company which is great. Management is friendly and understanding and while everyone works hard - they also have fun as a team.
Pros
Lots of opportunity and growth in the company - free parking
Cons
Commute

Good place to work, physical and rewarding
General Labourer (Former Employee) –  Ontario28 March 2018
The job is physical but it is rewarding. If your able to lift 40lbs and give it your best you will succeed working here. Training provided was on spot with the industry standards. Its a real team environment which i enjoyed working in. If your looking to strive daily and exceed your goals this is a place to learn and grow. Management and supervisors were good to work with, fair and understanding. If i did not move away i would go back.
Pros
Getting paid to work out
Cons
Working holiday weekends

Dodged a bullet!
Driver (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB20 March 2018
Considering the business profile is simple, your just providing the customers with propane. The challenges come when you learn about the company. Training could’ve been easier if management had integrity and held a professional attitude. If you’re brain dead, young, desperate or have no experience as a vendor, then sure, this place is for you. Trust me, this place shown it’s colours after two shifts, and it’s embarrassingly obvious it needs leadership.
Stay away!
Pros
Valuable experience
Cons
Poor management

One of the toughest jobs out there
Commissary Driver (Former Employee) –  La Salle, MB6 March 2018
You deliver 40 lbs propane cylinders to gas stations, 711s, Walmarts Etc. Count the stock with an invoice machine, swap the tanks, give receipt to customer, do your paperwork then off to next client. Roughly 10-25 stops a day (300 to 500 tanks a day). Job is very physically demanding, pay is alright. I left after 4 years cause I felt I was underpaid for what my output was. Management is pretty good, generally understanding supervisors. All I would say to prospective drivers is don’t work harder than necessary, they reward loyalty more
Pros
Decent Pay, home every weekend
Cons
Physically demanding, hard on the body

Unless you're desperate, stay away
Class 1 Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB21 February 2018
The wages are low, the work is heavy, and the equipment needed serious repairs and updating. The trailers are all used, and the company-owned tractors seriously need replacement (the leased units were OK).

The worst part of the job is that the wages are LOW - very low. There's no way a Class 1 driver hauling dangerous goods should be getting paid $22/hr. You also pay for ALL meals while on the road, and there's no allowance for it. You DO get a small allowance for your cell phone, but $10/month doesn't even come close to covering your use on the company's behalf.

Dispatch is extremely optimistic when it comes to scheduling your route, there's no time allotted for things such as meals, accidents, detours, not being able to park close to the cages, etc, etc.

You're also required to go to landfills and sort through propane tanks to pick out ones the company can repaint, put a new valve in, and sell as their own - this is part of their business model.

All in all, unless you desperately need the work to keep a roof over your head, stay away, stay FAR away. I worked there for the summer of '15 and would never go back.
Pros
Very little
Cons
Low wages, poor equipment

Accounting Assistant (Former Employee) –  La Salle, MB5 February 2018
Good entry level position for aspiring accountant but won't take long to master the position and get bored. Not much versatility in diverse jobs and it's a small accounting group with the corporate manager keeping higher level tasks. Job is manually intensive as management didn't want to invest is paying for services to make the job easier and more efficient. Working environment is relaxed and dress is casual which is nice.
Pros
Casual dress
Cons
Lack of advancement opportunities
