The company is robust and the organization is well structured.
This was a kind of stable IT team even though the technology industry is changing and improving daily.

It was a good life balance job with kids. Previous management was good. After management changed, dealing with management was incredibly challenging. What you need is not accepted right away.

Past several years have seen immense cuts.. I could go on and on.. but instead will just say..
Work here so it looks good on your resume.. and apply elsewhere.. you are not valued here.

Please avoid working in this company. Particularly, avoid working in the pricing department. The manager and the supervisor are very selfish. They don’t care for you. Even if you are sick they expect you to come into work. I have haven’t seen such high standards of unprofessionalism.
Pros
None. You get 5 sick days but you can’t use them.
Cons
Everything you can imagine, No growth, I have seen people working there from 15-20 years but still at the same position.

Very suffocating place to work. If you want growth in your career never join Viran. 15 ppl are working in same department at same level and some if them are there from 25 years. No promotion If you are an international student NEVER join this company they don’t help in permanent residency even if you leave the company. No reward for hard work. No new technology. Sometimes they fired ppl in their probation period just for taking two leaves. Management is nothing. they don’t have any idea what’s going on in office. Specially pricing /rating department is worse and they treat ppl like garbage. If you don’t trust, go and get experience like me.
Pros
Same work everyday
Cons
Sleeping management, no job security, no growth, no one listens you.

Management cuts employees and gives more work to remaining employees. Keep piling work on & only 2% raise per year (if you are lucky).
Poor office management, no accountability for those who are not doing their job.

Drug abuse in the office is overlooked.

They expect high numbers from you & only too happy to point out errors, we are human... errors happen.

No clear direction from management.

I would avoid this company like the plague.
Pros
Ok benefits
Cons
Poor management, no job security

Vitran Express is good company to work with as a team player and work is easy to learn but very difficult to be good in IT because you have to know a lot and everything .

Good work life balance, salary is ok, but no room for growth. Makes it difficult to get to a supervisor or management level as staff remains there for a long time and positions do not open up.

You are going to need to spend two years to get a first raise it does not matter how hard you work and how committed you are, there is a union that only protects and respond to seniority, new employees will not have the chance to go on holidays on July or August and they do not consider you as a person or human being, not an organized environment and the union woks mainly for seniors, I don't recommend this place
Pros
none
Cons
disorganized

nice place, work timings are odd, it would be great if they rotate shifts so that everyone can work day and night. number of hours vary from week to week.

I worked there for 7 years with no promotion or significant raise, despite excellent annual reviews. I made many attempts to try to learn more and advance but was stopped at every turn and not supported my management.
