Logistics Agent (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 31 July 2018
I found the staff in the brokerage department very unfriendly and rude. Felt that I was being tested at every step. The unprofessionalism of the staff and a leader that micromanaged every task. Played very clear favouritism and not afraid to reprimand in front of all staff members. Hostility was thick you could cut it with a knife, I have never worked in any such environment in my entire career. Turnover was high in the short space of time I was there Felt pressured not to have your lunch and if you did then expect to feel uncomfortable Your are spoken at, not spoken to
Fun place to work, challenging, fast pasted, date line oriented

Owner Operator (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 13 April 2015
Ursus Transport is a good company to work for. There is good communication between drivers and dispatchers; drivers and the management. The company cares as much for the employees as for the business. The company does not operate in Northern Alberta which made my family life impossible since my family moved to Fort McMurray. I love my job. Long hours behind the wheel, bad weather or snow covered mountains are just my "normal day's work". Years of driving taught me responsibility for the truck and transported goods. I know that I can be a valuable part of any business which relies on transport.
