Office Staff (Current Employee) – Richmond, BC – 24 May 2018
I've had the pleasure of working with some transformative leaders in this company. It's very refreshing to be in an environment that encourages collaboration among smart and humble individuals, the culture is one of the best things about working at Trail!
lots of employee events - lunch and learns, food trucks, baseball games, summer bbq, holiday parties
CST (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 16 May 2018
No room for advancement. Micro-managed. Under paid and poor raises. Head office over crowded. Actually got lectured about going home on time daily instead of staying 10-15 min later even though work was completed.

Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 9 March 2018
I really enjoyed working for Trail initially. However, the company is growing very quickly and not keeping up the pace of hiring proper staff and support. Near the end many were starting to burn out due to lack of support.
Store Administrator (Former Employee) – Lower Mainland, BC – 3 January 2018
For a company growing so fast they need to implement new procedures and more structure. The manager for administration over sees 25 employees and is hardly ever around other then via email or phone. They are under staffed and give their employees an unrealistic amount of daily tasks. The culture created by management is not positive at all.

Administrator (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 9 February 2017
It's not very often you find bosses that are leaders and not just people that tell you what to do. The bosses got their hands dirty and if someone called in sick, they were the first ones to jump in too help.
Fun workplace where people are allowed to be themselves
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) – Delta, BC – 30 December 2016
There is no micro-management but you are expected to work unsupervised. The management is very lax so expect to take initiative to get things done. My co-workers were wonderful people - there was no gossip or 'clicks'. Everyone got along. The hardest part of the job was not getting much back up from management, so I spent a lot time figuring things out for myself. Ironically, that was also the most enjoyable part of the job as I was not micro-managed at all.
Black out periods where you couldn't take any time off - eg. Boxing week etc.
Sales Administrator (Former Employee) – Langford BC – 25 March 2014
Company offered a great training program for new administrators. The Sales staff were all very knowledgeable and great to work with. However, the management was not very professional, which made some aspects of the job difficult. I enjoyed the hands on, interactive work place.
