Cheap company
They will like you when you first start there. As long as you work 24/7 for them you are a golden child but as soon as you say enough you are no longer liked. They will play games with you. This place has BIG turn over of employees. Wages are low and you have to fight to get a raise. Management is a joke. If you like to be micro managed you will be fine. Not the worse company that I have worked for but it is up there. The wage thing was the biggest issue, they think they are paying a BIG wage when they are always cheap. Management loves to talk smack about employees and then they are nice to the employees face. They are always playing games with employees. The moral is low in this place to say the least

Management very unreliable and none responsive. No dedication. When you phone for help management does not return your call. I would say to look elsewhere for a job if you want to be treated fairly.

Not enough hours and money
I joined this company hoping to get enough work and hours, bcoz they pay hourly! I was making less money than city drivers weekly while l was driving for XTL to USA.
They don’t have enough work too so sometimes l was just sitting home for a whole week. The equipment is new and well maintained but less work and so much less money made me quit this company.

pas d’humanité,
Ils ne respectent pas les ententes qui ont été prises avant l’embauche. À Varennes, ils n’ont pas de toilettes pour les chauffeurs, seulement des toilettes chimiques insalubres avec peu ou pas d’éclairage et rien pour se laver les mains. Les camions sont très sales et sont mal entretenus. Pour l’horaire c’est la même chose. Ils choisissent l’heure de début et on doit faire plus de 60h, sinon on est congédié.
Pros
Très peu
Cons
À peu près tout.

Regional truck driver
XTL is a good company to work for, easy job and no touch freight, management is good and fair. The only thing I didn’t like was the truck sharing (slip seating) and night driving, good camaraderie with other drivers
Pros
Good pay, great benefits package and great home time
Cons
Night driving

Mauvaise compagnie en générale, mauvais salaire
Très mauvaise compagnie de transport, beaucoup trop de rotation avec les chauffeurs (départ et embauche constante dans cette compagnie).

XTL passe par des agences de placement. Vous n'êtes donc pas employé par eux directement.


Au début à l'embauche plein de belle promesse par l'employeur, et après quelques temps ces choses sont oubliée.


Pour tous les chauffeurs de la division costco basée à Varennes, aucun camion n'est attitré, aucune route attitré. Les camions sont de vrai poubelle malgré qu'ils n'ont pas plus de 4 ans.


Les Brokers sont prioritaires sur les magasins (route attitré) , donc ce qui donne beaucoup moins de jobs pour les chauffeurs.


Quand vous avez un problème inutile d'essayer d'en parler car le problème ne ce règle pas en général.


Vous travaillez des 14 heures et avez l'impression que pour la compagnie c'est peu.


C'est selon moi une compagnie pour la personne qui désire débuter dans le transport et prendre de l'expérience mais rien de plus.


Cette compagnie prend top pour acquis que des chauffeurs ils sont capable d'en trouver n'importe où et donc c'est pas important pour eux.
Pros
Vous n'avez pas trop de pression, aucune manutention pour ''certains''
Cons
Camion dégeulasse, salaire très médiocre

Busy Workplace / Little Free Thinking
Not a bad place to work, just not a great place to work. Lots of redundancies within the organization and a lot of compartmentalization throughout the years had led to some mismanaged and poorly organized situations. There is a ton of more experienced workers here, who a) show little to no desire to learn anything new and b) are set in their ways and show little effort to help the younger workers feel like a part of the organization.
Pros
Great work/life balance.
Cons
Extremely poor coordination on major business profiles.

Répétitif!
Mauvaise surprise quand on applique pour cette entreprise.
Ils font des annonces sous leur nom, On fait un road test, on passe une entrevue et quand on te dit OK, là ils te sortent la bombe : Ici on engage pas directement ils faut passer par une agence de placement. Pardon??


Ils savent qu'un chauffeur d'expérience avec un bon dossier et de bonnes références évite à tous prix les agences de placement, qui selon moi est une des raisons principale pourquoi le domaine du transport est malade et a pas de relève.

Donc leur solution est de faire une annonce malhonnête, et déjà là vous allez avoir une bonne idée de la culture d'entreprise, de belle promesses avant l'embauche mais après ça se gâte, très très gros roulement de personnel, pour bien du monde c'est une job en attendant pour payer l'épicerie et avoir quelque chose à écrire sur le CV.


Emploi très répétitif, c'est une job de Shunter mais au lieu de shunter dans une cour avec un Ottawa, on shunt entre l’entrepôt et le magasin Costco qui est assigné: pinne, dépinne, sort la remorque de la porte, place une nouvelle remorque dans la porte.


Donc c'est pas pour tout le monde, c'est pas la place pour de la variété.

Les horaires de départ varient beaucoup à tous les jours selon les besoin de Costco, assez désagréable.
Pros
les dispatchs ne mettent pas de pression exagérément
Cons
employés jetables, zéro avantages sociaux.

Surrey location is an excellent place to work
I have worked with XTL in the Surrey location for 10 years and have never had any issues. The equipment is well maintained and turned over ever 4 years. Everyone receives a raise annually regardless of performance. Benefits and MSP are paid for. Lots of hours are available if your willing to work and I have never had to worry about getting paid. They even pay for chaining up in the winter. Management is easy to approach and is always looking to work with you. A great place to work.

Worked here as a forklift driver for 2 days before they fired me for saying I lacked interest hahaha what a joke.
This place is like your normal ( not ) super high pressure cross dock environment.
They fired me cuz I left early after my second day of training simce the guy who was trainning me felt like it was normal to yell at people. Typical transport culture. No respect towards fellow man in anyway. What kind of company has employes who have barely been there for a year give training? Oh the ones that are poorly structured and don't want to invest in adequate training. This company isn't for those who enjoy structured environments that follow the letter to the T and empower their staff.
Pros
Higher start wage
Cons
Not organized, noisy, lots of pressure, stressful

Very work focused but will allow you to choose your driving schedule
Typical pick and deliver. I just wish I can get major miles at the beginning of my shift.

Became good at being patient at 62mph tops


Management is great cause you never have to see them unless you do something that should not have, but they are friendly.


Pick your own route but you'll be paid fort he shortest rout and not the fastest.


Hardest part of the job is circadian rhythm goes off track and you still have to maneuver to make money, if you can.


Best part of the job is no one really bothers you, but when they do it seems to come back to back so you have update your resume just in case. JONT
Pros
Need some money, drive some more there is always a load
Cons
Need some time in-town for family to not pick-up and disappear, they will save your family with a yes.

Opportunities available
A decade with XTL. If you are looking for a responsible reliable company take a look at XTL. They have the latest equipment. Training programs to help you get started with the company not hinder you. If they were not reasonable I would have moved on by now.
Pros
open door policy

typical hard job of driver class 1
typical hard job of driver class 1. Minimum trips required 3 per day in 14 hours. If this was done in less then let's say 10 hours additional tasks were assigned and that was over the edge
Pros
typical hard job of driver class 1
Cons
typical hard job of driver class 1
