Company changing for the worse.
Driver (Current Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 8 December 2017
Westcan is a very large company which is in turn part of another very large company now owned by a Pension Fund. The attitude now seems to be to standardize everything, including the drivers. In other words, lowest common denominator. They are quite capable in the standard work environment in standard terrain, but are incapable of adjusting to different more challenging circumstances or terrain. They are a 'cookie cutter company'.
Payroll can only handle the 'cookie cutter' part of the company, anything out of their normal, paychecks will constantly need correction, a slow process.
They run safe equipment, training is good. Although, as with all large companies, the political people that talk the right lines will rise to the top, regardless of how competent they actually are in real life.
Steady work, good equipment, safe environment.
Will push to be on the road long periods, payroll constantly wrong on 'out of ordinary' runs.
