Fast-paced, perform all duties required, and stay positive.
Very fast-paced. Do as you are asked to do. Workplace culture is competitive rather than collaborative. Good for people who don't really like to engage much with fellow workers. Truck drivers are fun to talk with normally but also can be very assertive and sometimes confrontational. Still, I enjoyed working there.

Shift Leader | Calgary, AB | Mar. 27, 2014
Hectic Workplace With Little Room to Advance
a typical day at work varies, it can either be very slow and nothing to do or it can be incredibly busy and not enough time to finish whats expected. There is very little praise and more than enough criticism. All of the employees get along and work well together, you can always ask for help. I think the most enjoyable part of the job is getting to take on almost any job and not being limited based on your apprentice level. The hardest part is getting everything done accordingly to the expectations of the management.

Lots of hours
Good benefits and pay. Lots of hours. I was on the home depot contract so I can only speak about this. The team of drivers are very helpful and great to work with
ConsNot reliable equipment

Operations Manager | Brampton, ON | Feb. 1, 2016
Good company to work for. Hold a lot of events in recognition of their employees' dedication.
The most enjoyable part of the job can also be the hardest part of the job. It is a very fast paced working environment with constant trouble shooting and decision making. It's very rewarding when you're able to help that customer receive their delivery on time and trouble free. It's very rewarding when you offer a new team member proper training and then watch them apply their newly learned skills to the job in a positive and productive way.
ProsStaff recognition events.
ConsTechnology.

Its a job
The very best job I have ever had, the pleasantness and cooperative nature of fellows employees will forever be missed (not). For those reading this you know who I am and let me be clear, leaving was the single greatest decision that I have ever made. When a job affects your personality and heath the way this one did you have to walk away and never think of that place again.
Prosfree t shirts
Constoxic, cancerous environment.

Logistics Associate | Ajax, ON | Mar. 10, 2018
Just meets quality of life standard
No standardized review or wage increases. I like that I can work the hours I want, with very little micro-managing for the most part. Also, it's close to home. There are several locations & provinces to choose from also, which is good. I learned by trial and error, and common sense. I received 4-6 hours of training and was put on night shift. It actually made me better at my job, so I appreciated that aspect. New people now receive about 2-3 weeks of training, so they've improved in that respect. Workplace is cutthroat, but that is because of the "outsourced" facility environment. I think they could be better. Workplace culture? Diverse, accepting but also a bit muddled/ confused. Hardest part of the job is keeping up with the many changes & "try again" implementations. Most enjoyable is working with what I know. Trucking, truck drivers, carriers and staff. The employees make Canada Cartage what it is today.
Prosflexible work hours

Why did you leave your job at Canada Cartage System?
Asked Mar. 28, 2017
Management in Edmonton fails at all levels. When approached about an issu they say “we’ll get back to you”. But never do! So what they’re really saying is stop bothering me. Trucks are filthy and they say there’s nothing we can do about it. “One drivers clean is another drivers dirty”. How about as managers you set what is acceptable. That’s what some other outfits do..... but then again it doesn’t affect them so they don’t care. As long as it doesn’t interfere with their lunch or quitting time cleanliness of trucks isn’t on their radar. Mechanical dependability is another issue that doesn’t interfere with lunch or quitting time. Just very frustrating.

- Really bad managements, manager don’t care about driver - mistake and missing money on mostly evey pay and when you ask for correction they refuse it most of the time. - bottom line truck, look like they’re’ always looking for the cheapest one when it’s time to get new rigs - to much telemetric in these truck ( e-log, camera on truck, company phone, and more welcome to big brother world—) -they don’t trust their driver at all And more and more..... Stay away unless you’re new to the industry and need to get experience to have a better job!
