One of the better trucking companies in western Canada
Profession Driver (Current Employee) – Surrey BC – 22 July 2018
One of the better trucking companies because they pay for most of the time on the job including: chaining up, road closure standby time, and waiting for trailers to be loaded/unloaded.
Good benefit package including long and short disability, which is handy because the job is dangerous at times - several drivers have had serious illnesses and injuries requiring long periods off from work.
Unfortunately they have lost some big contracts and cut drivers mileage resulting in lower pay - 20% in the past 2 years.
Equipment is sub par and they don't do speedy repairs resulting in break downs.
Management are difficult to deal with, every problem is automatically the driver's fault and they won't listen to your side of the story unless you have proof, cover your rear every day is the name of the game, or you'll be hauled on to the carpet.
Advice to Management: increase business so that driver wages can go back up to pre 2016 levels and this will help to stop driver turn over.
Find better managers who look to solve problems rather than finding ways to blame and harass the drivers.
Good co-workers and good benefits
