Driver (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 25 September 2018
Depending on the branch that you work for the pay could either be average or very good. The pension plan is amazing and the health plan is pretty good as well. There are a lot of different opportunities and cool runs that an individual can do so long as they are willing to go where the work is.
Lots of opportunities, fair wages, good pension plan
Mechanic (Current Employee) – Sundre, AB – 21 September 2018
Not a bad company. But management is toxic always stirring the pot between employees. Job never ever felt secure from the start. No appreciation for extra hrs or good work. Management never listen to any drivers shop or office staff. But bad management always loose good employees.
Company Driver (Former Employee) – Concord, ON – 7 September 2018
Got hired worked 2 months. No management, never saw my reporting manager. He was too busy to listen to any issue. No one knows whats happening which gets frustrating after some time. Poorly managed dispatch. Training that can easily be completed in 2 weeks got stretched for 2 months as they had no truck and B trains to give. Got tired of this hanging in the middle. Old drivers who hate their work and their union doesn't let new comers and management settle.
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
