Retention Specialist (Former Employee) – Canada – 17 September 2015
Great Company, well oiled machine if you will with great levels of expertise and field experience. I enjoyed the "people" the most, from new to seasoned drivers, trainers and most management. There are many opportunities with the company but unfortunately one manager's personal opinion may effect your career development rather than skill. The most challenging part of my job was dealing with some poor, ineffective leaders and having little to no support in fostering the necessary changes. Most rewarding would have be to see an individual accomplish his/her goals, such as a technician obtaining his AZ or a company driver becoming an owner operator and purchasing his first truck. I guess I am a sucker for happy endings... Like everywhere you have to take the good with the bad.
Leader in the industry
Lack of training for new hires other than drivers and not enough emphasis on career development
Mechanic (Former Employee) – saskatoon SK – 12 August 2015
the ability to make decision by myself rather than being told what I should or shouldn't t do by the shop Foreman, how to getting the jobs done in a timely fashion and a professional manner, I found that i could approach anyone that I worked with if I ran into a problem with the job that I was doing, the most difficult part of the job I found was remembering weather the part were within the warranty period and the most enjoyable part of the job was getting hand on and left to my own devices rather than someone constantly looking over my shoulder.
Fast pace environment, customer service skills, computer literacy.
Traffic supervisor (Former Employee) – Dundas, ON – 25 June 2015
Long but rewarding work hours, trained to perfection on industry and company standards, great teamwork when required from all dispatch employees, on call for minimum one week per month, received tons of "hands on learning".
Driver (Former Employee) – Trail – 15 February 2015
Hired as a driver and was told many things, that after three months never appeared. Recommend other drivers to use caution when applying and get things in writing. Dispatchers and managers are just as disconnected from the drivers as any other company. Typical company that blames the drivers first before looking within.
Too many to list, do your due digilence and check.
Driver (Current Employee) – Ontario – 10 January 2015
Is the place perfect No.
Like anything there's good and bad, my last five years have been outweighed with good.
Almost everyone reading this will face a personal or family emergency sometime in there working career. Trimac is hands down the most helpful and understanding while their employees face difficult times.
A lot of companies preach safety As well as Trimac yet they practice what they preach and safety is truly a core value for Trimac.
