Great West Benefits are not to bad since they've changed them. Up to 50,000 on drugs and dental, 1500 massage chrio, ect
Management will always blame the driver even if its the company's fault. Management will lie just so they can be right and you be wrong Management is poor is poor is poor and argManagement is poor and argManagement is poorManagement is poorManagement is poor and argumentative Management here are bullies and will harass you until you quit CEO's preach if you have an issue come straight to us. Try getting a hold of one! It isn't an easy task. 'Safety is there #1 priority' is a lie. If your unsure of something they tell you not to do it, better safe than sorry. That's a lie. You get suspended for doing the right thing. Safety personal aren't even educated in HSE, They're the ones who made the most mistakes but the company couldn't fire. Equipment is always braking down, drive it till she dies they say. Equipment is old and outdated Pay is horrible for delivering dangerous goods you should be making well over there median wage. They say you should be paid no less than 23/hr but your paid by the load and the tri standards they have don't include traffic, loading issues, off loading issues, road conditions ect.

Very supportive and competent management. Extremely safety oriented. Great company to work for.
I do not have anything bad to say.

None come to mind. Constant mismanagement since the company bought out Mantei's Transport. Massive safety issues, management does not stand behind it's employees. The ONLY good thing is the Petro Chem Drivers Association. This group is working hard at maintaining a good line of communication between the drivers and management but it falls on deaf ears on the company side.
Safety issues, equipment not being maintained poor/non-existent communication. The other 2 transport companies that we are forced to share space with are experiencing massive failures in their management. Due to that, the company is losing money at an accelerated rate. Their response to this is to try and strip Mantei's of their driver association and cut back the wages to compensate for their losses in other companies. (Wiebe and "Seaboard West").3

Challenging work, knowledgeable upper management
Little actual control over certain areas like spending. Lots of red tape

Great middle management. Great co-workers. Competitive salary. Overtime pay. No shortage of work.
Employees left to stagnate. Total Lack of development and growth for many employees. Equipment is very old and falling apart. Too many inexperienced drivers.
