Was a good place to work. Experience was good and work was steady when economy slowed. Management was flexible with hours if there were personal issues. Overall good place to be.

They promote safety in the orientation. Work the legal hours of operations. But when a driver gets out on the road that goes all out the window, so to speak. It is go, go, go. Who cares about the long book and hours. Get the load there. They need to plan and communicate better with the drivers. Very stressful place to work.

Too much stress. Always feel under pressure. Always fear of loosing job. Once your driver get well trained they start offering him or her owner operator job or company driver job. You can't grow your business.

This company is hiring owner operators every month as you can see job posting online but there is no work even for the current owner operator.This company will use you to make money in peak season and rest of the year owner operator has to pay insurance plates and truck installments from own pocket .They are not empathic about owner operators just worried about own interest.They will just say simple sorry for no work.

As owner operator I did not have much to do with management other than the dispatch department.
Kept owner operators busy all across Prairie Provinces.

I was the shop foreman at Trimac. I worked as the night shift foreman there. The people were good to work for and overall was a good place to work. I learned a lot while I was there.
