DOCK WORKER/FORKLIFT OPERATOR (Former Employee) – Concord, ON – 16 August 2018
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

O S & D Coordinator (Current Employee) – Concord, ON – 26 July 2018
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.

Production Worker (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 4 April 2018
Working with Vitran was good experience. I learned lot of new tools. Management was helpful. The worse part of the job was hours. Near Christmas they have so much work that we had to work many extra hours means less family time. And during low time they do not give you enough hours and send you home early.

BILLING CLERK (Former Employee) – Oak Bluff, MB – 17 August 2017
The managers were awesome! I enjoyed my experience and time at Vitran. I learned a lot from my fellow co-workers and bosses, including: learning a new software program, and learning how to create invoices. Everyone was very friendly.
A seemingly good company on the outside, but absolutely archaic on the inside. Dispatch screen is an aluminum tower that turns around. The leash is very short. Any issues within 3 weeks means your demise. Also, this job is for you if you enjoy being watched at all time via security camera.
Good place to work for ( supervisors need people skills )
fork lift operator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 August 2016
first let me say that I love working at Vitran express . The company to employee regulations are fair .I do agree with the policy of seniority. after all when you work for a company for 30 years you should have priority over someone that just stated .
even though the older guys get priority for overtime I get overtime every week . and I have only been there for 3 months .
the company provides employees with very good benefits , sceduled salary raises and union work conditions .
I do however have a problem with the supervisors , all but one need to really get some people skills and follow the union rules . yelling and being rude to employees has to stop immediately and upper management should get involved . stop being vindictive and threaten employees with making them hand bomb all day long if you do not agree with what they have to say .
for the most part they are great , but as in any company there is always a few bad apples . fortunately management knows about them and they pose no threats .
overall this is a great place to work for and if your looking for a job this is a great place
decent pay, good coworkers, great patient upper management
