If your semi retired and want to get paid a little to travel. Then this is for you. Or if your a new driver and need experience and have no Bill's, live at home. Perfect.

The Company went from two brothers owning it to one shortly after I started. The brother that took over as CEO/President turned out to be a micro manager who was always standing over your shoulder and raising the commission numbers so he paid less commission. The worst work experience I have ever had.

Big Freight was a great place to work. I was given a dedicated Dispatcher that always worked with me to keep my wheels turning and to get me where I needed to be when I needed to be there.

Lots of miles. Mostly flatbed, but they offer other divisions like specialized van loads and glass hauling trailers.


I enjoyed my time working at Big Freight

Like mostly every trucking company there are a couple of dispatchers that actually believe that you and the truck are their personal property. Other that that it's a great place to work. Management is great. Equipment is new. Pay is great. Home time is great. I'd go back, if they would take me back, if I was to ever go back to highway driving.
Points positifs
Equipment, pay, home time
Points négatifs
A couple of arrogant dispatchers.

20 years of trucking and this was by far the worst I've ever driven for. I was offered a scheduled run from Alberta to Tacoma WA Monday to Friday. Well that never happened the first week they had me running flatbeds around Alberta then tried to make me run a load to Oregon on a Friday knowing they could not get me a reload till the following Monday. Needless to say that was enough for me to see what they were like!. Bunch of no good liars.
Points positifs
Not a ONE!
Points négatifs
Low pay, trucks are governed below safe highway speeds, shop staff are just ignorant, trainer was a lazy useless piece of work, recutier was a liar, hotel you stay in is in the middle of nowhere, they expect you to not run your truck at night in the middle of winter at -40, still way too much to list

I have been working for Big Freight Systems for 1.5 years. I feel that I have a lot of guidance and support when I need it, but am also trusted to work independently.

There are a lot of good bonuses and incentives to work here, barbecues, lunches, golf tournaments, nice Christmas parties etc. The staff is friendly and the communication is good as long as employees do not have too much work-load on their plates.


The staff within the office is always actively meeting and making initiatives to make this a better employer for both the professional drivers as well as the team within the office. It is always a work in progress, but I do feel that as a whole, if there are any issues, they are worked to be resolved with proper communication. They also do a good job to promote from within, and are flexible with life changes that drivers face and try to accommodate as best as they can.


I recommend the company, as I do not see many downfalls to working here.
Points positifs
Nice people, great support, lunches/BBQ, in house Gym
Points négatifs
The typical stresses and pressure of the Transport Industry

Unsafe climbing on top of cages to roll out tarps to cover product. They make u tarp in orientation. Not very well planned or organized with trips. 2 trucks showed up at 1 location for same load in Illinois. Shop not friendly at all.shop foreman is not driver friendly at all. I dont recommend this company unless your a new driver. Promised lease program and that never happened.
Points positifs
Bbq.newfoundland trips
Points négatifs
Have to work extremely hard for your money

The turnover in the office and on the fleet in the last 2 years has to be unmatched in the industry. Not something to be proud of. I have worked twice for BFS, the first time was bad but I had heard they really turned around the company after entire new leadership was brought in a few years ago. All those people are gone within a couple years. I fleet managed and there was a lot of favoritism to drivers who brought "goodies" for the planner and it was well known. It didn't change when I came back and the shop and ops leader were already gone. I lasted under a year this time
Points positifs
Reno's done to office and was nicer my 2nd time in office
Points négatifs
no overtime but expected to work extra and bad management

When i worked them, it was a revolving door, unsafer and poor safety culture, telling you to tarp when there wasnt a need. No training on harnesses and the dangers of if you fell. Realy low pay, and they think its the best thing since apple pie. Complain at you if you use any other fuel stations then flying j's

promise you bonuses but the fuel and all that go out the window, which is bs
Points positifs
get you own truck
Points négatifs
never replace the beds after the previous driver was in there which is nasty

An easy going company to work for, with some very nice ( if you like automatic ) trucks & getting some even better trucks in the near future, but hard to make a living.

Paid on a millage basis with a $20 flat rate fee for drops may work O.K. in the wide open prairies, but is no good on the west coast with two border crossings a day factored in. When calculated I averaged less than $15 an hour based on mileage pay running the busy I-5 to Tacoma.


I would suggest that all work west of Chilliwack, B.C.anything on Vancouver Island & anything down I-5 as far as Portland, Oregon needs to paid on an hourly basis, as it is heavy traffic all the way. Most companies than run these areas do pay hourly. As I said the millage rate works in the prairies, but not on the west coast.


Also the flat rate of $20 per drop makes no sense, as I would get $20 to unload one Polaris ATV which takes about half an hour & still only get the same $20 flat rate to unload six or seven ATV's which can take about two hours.
Points positifs
Nice trucks & easy going to work for.
Points négatifs
Low pay when you figure all the hours
