This is my first tractor trailer job so don't have anything to compare it to.
Driver (Current Employee) – Chatham, Ontario – 7 March 2018
Working here has been great so far. People's reviews seem to be complaining that they work you too hard and I feel that they don't have enough work for me. I'm always willing to work the weekends or longer hours but for the time being that doesn't seem to be an option. The dispatchers have always been friendly and knowledgeable about anything I ask them. All other managers have also been friendly and answer any concerns I may have regarding HR, safety, payroll or shop guys. I don't have a whole lot of complaints but I did notice the other day that when I looked at my pay stub and seen a stat day on there, it appears I make more money for an 8hour stat day than what I would make if I actually worked a full 10 hour day. That doesn't seem right but that's small time stuff I can suck up for now. Looking forward to getting more experience and hopefully more opportunities to get more work.
Steady work during the week. Late model trucks and trailers.
No pension, RRSP. Benefit package could be better for size of company.

Warren Gibson is one of the leading Canadian companies around, new equipment, excellent wages, great dispatchers an overall excellent company to work for, am currently employed there, excellent safety Dept, this company really cares about thier people, wouldn't be there if it were any different.

lots of promisses at orientation that never happen no chance to keep your first safety bonus even if you have never did anything safety department will find something and dispatchers will lie to you just to clear calls and good luck if you have to talk to anybody at shop when your truck needs to be looked at
Loved driving the truck, and the people I worked for and with.
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Chatham-Kent, ON – 4 April 2017
Pick up the truck and deliver it to the parts to the factory on time. Management was great. I loved the people I worked with on a daily basis. I hated having to leave this job. I really enjoyed driving the big truck.

You have to work very hard 60 to 70 hours a week. You literally will have no home life and be expected to do more than possible without risking your safety bonus. I am currently working for them but I'm not happy and I'm always looking for something better.
Long Haul Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Alliston, ON – 2 June 2014
The safety department will tell you to take your time, get out and relax for a half hour every three hours, the dispatchers will loose it on you if you do, bottom line is they want people to drive 13 hour shifts with only a half hour break and they expext you to go into off duty status while at the customer so your log book looks like you rested the proper amount. If you want to drive toward a heart attack and be a slave to the truck then this is the job for you.
long hours, 1/2 break for the day, abusive dispatchers
