Don't Apply to Whitby Location
Driver (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 30 October 2018
I applied to work as a DZ driver for Linde. On the phone the recruiter talked about how they are a huge multinational company worth billions. Then I get to the site for the interview. I'm told the position I'm applying for is the second driver for the terminal, that one of the drivers wants to move to a position inside the terminal. I would have brought the staffing level to 4 for the terminal that services the entire Toronto area. During the interview the guy tells me what a terrible job it is, how they were prosed new trucks a year ago, and how they have been trying to hire a driver for almost 2 years now.
I said I was willing to give the job a chance anyways, but they declined to hire me because I didn't have the 3 years of experience required for the job. I went to a college for my DZ training and have 20 years of driving experience with regular class vehicles, and said I was willing to do whatever training they would require and that I was willing to do a road test for them so they could see my driving skill.
They won't take new drivers, and anyone with experience would see how much of a s#@t show it is the second they walk in the door, and won't work there. You can tell this company really cares about their employees, the way they screw their current staff for years instead of giving anyone a chance.
This has been my experience with Linde, and I would never suggest anyone should apply there. They reposted the job a week before eventually replying to my email asking for an update because I was told I would get a call a day or two after we spoke on the phone.
Wouldn't know, wasn't told any
Everything according to the guy I interviewed with
