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

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
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 13 August 2017
horrible dispatch, management even worse. they will happily lie to o/o to get them to sign on truck. they will bankrupt you. stay away. they just do not care about drivers or customers. This company is all about manager protecting manager
Driver (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 11 August 2017
This was a excellent company a few years ago. After the new management team started things went down hill fast . As soon as they get some work they hire to many drivers and then nobody makes enough money . Even though dispatch and management promise you make money but then you don't get enough work. So of course they have a high turnover of drivers.
Very difficult work/life balance; compensation is low
Information Technology (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 25 July 2017
Trimac is a tough company to work for unless you are able to give more than you are willing to get out. Job compensation is on the low-end, with job security being relatively non-existent in the past few years.
Long hours, small support teams, low pay, low job security
Transport Driver (Former Employee) – Concord, ON – 25 July 2017
My job at Trimac was to deliver Bulk products through Ontario. I delivered to gas stations and plastic to the railroad yard in Toronto, The management was very good, I enjoyed the people I worked with and the workplace culture was fine, The hardest part of the job was that I worked long hours so there really was not any life balance.
Company Driver (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 25 June 2017
Its been wonderful to be a part of this company. unfortunately i have to move to another province for my personal reasons.Work Culture is pretty good here and you are in charge of what you are doing and feel appreciated. it was awesome experience to work with a talented team. it is easy job if you will do with proper procedures and safety.
Good pay and benefits. Proper training. safety is always first priority in every aspect.
Petroleum Driver (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 May 2017
Old trailers with underspeced,unreliable tractors. Management that doesn't have a clue how to run the place. Too many office staff compared to trucks on the road. Totally disorganized and incompetent. Can't even make a driver schedule properly or make sure licence plate stickers on tractors are up to date. Branch 51 is a pathetic joke.
Driver Trainer (Safety Supervisor) (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 13 April 2017
Very diverse job with lots of potential for learning many different commodities. great experience in all aspects of the trucking industry, from Mountain experience chaining up to being able to coach and train other drivers. In class room teaching and one on one.
