Do your job right and I found you were treated well. They paid near the top of the scale for trucking company's, but expected a days worth of work from you. Management was fair, but it was a union shop so management would sometimes try to bend the rules. The hardest part of the job was constantly being watched, radio's,GPS,
They lay off drivers from Nov-March every year with only 12-24hours per week. NO APPRECIATION, POOR EQUIPMENT. They carry huge MTO target on their back. Employees are treated poorly. Union is trash too...Management lacks ethics and they don't respect confidentiality.
The pay is salary, and you will stay late every shift, meaning no OT pay. No vacation time for the first year. They claim lots of cross training (which is true) but it's only because this company is so cheap that they are grossly understaffed. Some people may like this idea, but your pay won't reflect the skills you're expected to learn. Your start time will also change dramatically after you start. Evening shifts will suddenly become early morning shifts. A keycard is required to enter the facility, which you will never get, and if you work nights when all the doors are locked it becomes a dangerous situation. You will have to walk a block in the dark to enter the warehouse side and walk through, past moving forklifts and equipment to get back in. There is NO LUNCHROOM for non-teamsters, no free coffee, this is an office straight out of the 80s. No one takes their coffee breaks because it's so busy and it really seems frowned upon for some reason.
wage, some staff are very kind
too many to list
The company isn't too bad to work for they are willing to work with us for time off and emergencies. The management in Winnipeg could use some help. They also provide hotels when needed.
You get to see a lot of Canada and the USA at no expense to yourself.
long hours and not much thanks for work you do
High management turnover, typically 6mos-2yrs. Management has no leadership skills, no vision or direction. Micromanaging, office politics and high school mentality of inner and outer circles throughout the company. Unionized environment is a world for themselves. Union employees with 2 or more years at the company are in a good place. New hires don't last a year by being on call, barely making part time hours despite being promised full time job after probation or within 6mos. Dangerous working conditions, high risk of fatigue, poor equipment (or lack of) for dock or drivers. Pay is good if you don't mind working in a mentally toxic environment (for the most part). You will quit before you get fired...
Relatively easy to get the job due to high rate of turnover.
Long hours, no work - life balance. US based corporation. No promotion from within.
I gained knowledge within a office atmosphere and was able to assist in the moving and placement of office material and furniture. The staff were always pleasant and I appreciate them for allowing me to volunteer within their office.
Horrible moral, good pay, good work pace, no job security when your the junior man as no work share and an older workforce. really terrible equipment, old and wore out. Overall not a bad place to work just very insecure.
good pay, nice management
terrible equipment no job security
All aspects of dock office administration. Opening and closing shifts on weekends, working as part of a supervisory team. Comprehensive knowledge of operations achieved. Multi-tasking required, but difficult at times depending on daily demands. Management and co-workers were exceptional. Challenges of the work made the job challenging and therefore both enjoyable and challenging.
challenging work place.
often short staffed.
