Air & package car driver (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 October 2017
I worked as an international air-driver so I got a transport Canada Clearance Pass. Learned the rules for customs documentation,; became a package-car-driver and found it too heavy of a work load being a new-mother and full time heavy job. I loved the job, just couldn't do EVERYTHING I wanted to do at the time.
Free uniforms/ with laundry
X-mas brutally long hours, not enough family time then.

Cover Driver (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 July 2017
Only take this job if your desperate, as the management here can be a pain in the donkey. When you first start out its not bad and everyone will help you. Once you obtain Full salary that's when everything goes downhill and will stay there until you can't take it anymore and find the desire to look for new work. If it were not for the Union you will find it hard to work here.

Worked night shift it can be rather easy in the summer tome but when the christmas rush comes in expect long nights and make sure to be in very good physical condition. They are very flexible with your hours no reason not to apply.

Package handler (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 January 2017
I would get into work, clock in then we would head to our assigned trailers and start offloading packages. Once I was done, I would inform my supervisor and he would assign a new trailer. Sometimes the supervisor would come inside the trailer with you and help you unload. Some days he would stand at the door and see what speed your taking to off load a trailer. Most of the days we would work two people in a trailer and that was good, you could get work done faster. The hardest part of the job was when we got heavy packages and we were short on staff so you had to do it all by yourself. The part that I liked about my job was that you were assigned to offload a trailer and your supervisor would let you get to work and not bother you.
You can see your making contributions by the work your doing.
Good team, unappreciated employees and very very very bad mAnagement
Ramp Agent part time (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 January 2017
Had fun with my team, but the rest of the experience was horrible. Majority of management only cared about the boxes and their job. Employees were treated as slaves; unappreciated, over worked, their opinions don't matter. Management/supervisors are always right no matter what they do. Human resources is being influenced and partial in their judgment. Zero opportunities for self improvement and advancement.
Walker (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 June 2016
usually went on thru thru the day and rarely fatigue. I've learned to use a diad scanner and release deliveries. the management was excellent. my co workers made the day and job a lot easier by properly explaining my equipment and job. the hardest part of the job would've been getting used to the diad and operating it with no light in the dark. the most part i enjoyed about my job was customer satisfaction, and the bond with my co workers.
Not fun place to be at, at all with some racist co-workers
Customer Services Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 November 2015
A Typical day you'll be watching over your shoulder from some co-workers as they just wait for you to make a mistake, and keep pushing tasks into your table to finish. The hardest part of the job is bagging for short time off that can be made up by showing early other days or stay working late.
