people who working in the office are willing to help you to solve any issues , they are friendly. the working stress came from the road conditions, weather, and time line.

Great place to work, supportive managers. Always busy. Great training. Like the ride along. The building has lots of places to rest during your breaks.

Drivers had a fair amount of support and given many tools to help them succeed. Dispatch and office were typically well educated to assist and give pointers for most issues.

The head office culture is amazing but the Langley office is terrible. The management was mean and negative. There is no space to grow. There is a lot of gossiping.

Garbage pay at $0.40/mile, and garbage equipment. Dash lit up like Christmas tree with warning lights, not to mention removing four full bags of garbage from bunk area. A homeless person would be grossed out at the thought of sleeping in that bunk. Honestly, any driver can find better than these clowns.

Pencil pusher heavy simply means there are more people making decisions then there needs to be, they are so overstaffed with people looking around to justify why they are even their. Your dispatcher cannot make a decision without talking to his boss. And so it goes.

PROS: Paid every Friday.

Free BBQ's in the summer.


CONS: Free BBQs in the summer only. Unhealthy food.

Slow trucks.

Paid weekly & very weakly.

Computers in the trucks telling the office that your a high-risk driver even though I have 6 years safe driving awards from Bison not to mention other companies I have worked for.

Before you leave on a trip, after your pre-trip you need to reply to no less the 3 to 8 satellite messages. Oh and don't forget if your trailer is equipped with air deflectors on the back, open them up.

If you are in your own assigned unit, don't leave anything of value when you're at home doing your reset, they will use your truck and there are thieves and barn animals that will drive your unit when you are not.


BOTTOM LINE from where I sit, Bison would be a good driving career if they didn't rely so heavily on technology that they think is making them one of the safest fleets on the highway. Ever notice the "YOUR SAFE WITH ME" campaign is long gone, wonder why. 🤔

Although they have performance Bonuses, they are just that bonuses. They will take it away if anything happens. And they are paid quarterly,
doesn't really help paying regular bills. That being said after 11 years we've had 2 base rate increases $0.02/mile in 2016 and a $0.01/per mile in 2018. In 11 years that works out to about an 8.1% increase, compared to a cost of living increase of about 17.5% for the same period. They wonder why it's hard to get drivers.

For the amount of work they expect out of you. The pay sure sucks. $32,000/ YEAR. What is that supposed to cover? No benefits, no savings plans ie pension. Nothing. The management is horrible. Constant pressure and micromanaging. I would run from this place. Not worth the street for the peanuts they pay. That's why they hire a bunch of entry level kids.

Had a good dispatcher. I wanted lots of USA miles , I got it. He did best he could to give me home time when I asked. The pay at Bison was at or near the top of the long haul industry out of Winnipeg. I now live in Vancouver island and could work for Bison again for the right dispatcher . If he would cater to my needs, I could do the same for him

Most of the staff were very friendly but there were the problem ones who didn't care about the drivers. They were always assuming the worse and acting that way towards drivers.

Big wall between office staff and drivers. Office staff don’t even wanna talk to drivers. They think they are different but actually they are loonies because Planners, Managers, dispatchers don’t know the ABC of trucking but they like to command drivers. NO RESPECT AT ALL FOR DRIVERS

Difficult industry. Takes an experienced team of professionals to navigate the ebs and flows of daily business. Communication and problem solving key to success.

They expect you to work at insane hours of the day. Starting at 1-3am to be ontime for the switch got to be a little much. They had really bad trailers lots of them with cracked frames and constant light problems.

Long days or 12 hour shifts, 4 on 4 off. Co workers were all nice, friendly and professional. Wage was poor for the amount of hours worked and how much work you had to do. Never once received a raise or had a review which played a massive role in why I left working at Bison and moved on to another trucking company. Was a good move.

Fast-paced environment - very team-oriented. Bison has a workplace culture as very few companies have. Very friendly staff, management, and team are always willing to mentor and help you when needed. The workload can be heavy at times like everywhere else but very rewarding once the job is done. Highly recommend

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. We definitely expect a lot out of people for the workload but that is balanced with a great culture that supports collaboration!
