Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Trail, BC – 27 July 2018
A wonderful company for maintaining focus on the safety of their employees, the public and the environment. Always changing with growth potential in mind and willing to bring people up through the ranks. The most difficult challenge is keeping track of the changes and contacts, however the best part is the team you get to work with. Awesome hardworking people.
Safety culture & never boring
work/life balance tends to weigh heavily on the work side
Excellent company to work for. They are forward thinking and always try to make things better. The calgary office has flexible schedules, an on site gym and fantastic people to work with. They will train you and promote from within when they can. I'm so glad I found trimac and am not looking to leave anytime soon.
Driver (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 27 June 2018
Was a good place to work...too many ego's involved now. A lot of lies told to keep you on staff and keep you from leaving but most never come through. The company seems doomed to failure. They tend to lose a lot of contracts and don't seem to ever have a plan "B". Look elsewhere if you wish to be valued.
Owner/Operator (Former Employee) – Sarnia, ON – 18 June 2018
As an owner/operator on the Anhydrous division I had no complaints. I loved working with Trimac and would still be there if I hadn't moved to Newfoundland. They are excellent with their maintenance protocol and will help you with costs of parts if they can. I sometimes had problems downloading payroll info but I think they have fixed all that.
Lease Operator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 30 May 2018
I worked there last year , it was one of the worst companies i ever worked at . I worked at trimac as a lease operator and their rates were really really low . I used to make more money as a driver. They promise good rates but never deliver . Work is only 5 months out of a year. Mechanics are rip off , they dont know what they are doing. I strongly suggest that you get in touch with a lease operator from that branch before getting hired .
Accounts Payable Clerk (Full-Time) (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 1 March 2018
hardest part of the job is that there is no room to grow . Life is beautiful but not always easy, it has problems, too, and the challenge lies in facing them with courage, letting the beauty of life act like a balm, which makes the pain bearable, during trying times, by providing hope
Lease Operator (Former Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 16 February 2018
Learned a lot at this job. Handled different Trailer combinations and how to handle different chemicals.Trimac kept me busy between BC, Alberta, Sask.Wash. Oregon.I had a blower for dry products and a pump for liquid products so learned a lot there.
Mechanic (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 4 February 2018
I used to work for trimac.. had an accident which almost costed me my life from no fault of my own and even saved a life in the process and the third day out of hospital i was let go due to health concerns....
Truck Driver (Current Employee) – Golden, BC – 25 January 2018
My position with Trimac is to fuel locomotives for CP Rail. It can be a fast paced job some days and others slow. Depends on train traffic. We work a 4 on 4 off here, which makes it great for family life at home. The hardest part of the job is waiting for the next call out. The most enjoyable part is to be outdoors, and able to go home to your own bed nightly.
Overall company is good; Management is lacking people skills
Financial Services Analyst (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 19 January 2018
Overall the company is good, but salary and benefits are not great. Some departments need more experienced leaders - low lever management people skill set is lacking and immature, and there is very unstructured training. Praise is given to those who have the gift of the gab, talking with no action has more value than tangible skills and results. If you can tolerate being a mindless drone, cubicle dweller and can talk a huge political fancy game, you will fit right in. If you have skills, you are active, asking to many work related questions and can give results, you will sink.
Free lunches on Fridays - potluck, great co-workers
Good corporate culture and many learning opportunities
Manager, Strategic Sourcing (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 November 2017
Trimac is a great organization to work with. At head office in Calgary the corporate culture was work hard and play hard. Expectations were high, but at the same time a credit was given when a job well done.
Finance (Current Employee) – calgary ca – 9 November 2017
The culture as a whole is fun, loving, and nice. There is room for growth as an organization and progression in eradicating ancient processes. With the direction of CEO Trimac will be a fierce competitor.
Opportunity for a life long career.
Poor choice of some leaders, select qualified directors
