Good work fast paced if you pay close attention it is easy. Have to be on time to the second on breaks. Got to have good decision making. Working with mop heads, sorting out mats that have been washed.
delivery and pick up of mats and garments on a specific route. Excellent management staff and co-workers.Lots of lifting and bending. Dealing with customers on an hourly basis. Good pay and benefits and 4 day weeks for customer service reps
Canadian Linen is an EXTREMELY poor managed and run company (Hamilton Office) with a very negative work environment.
The work load and expectations on the Data Entry/Customer Service dept is VERY unrealistic. They have no knowledge of how to manage their team - giving NEW hires the largest branch/workload. If you ask for support from your supervisors or let them know you are overwhelmed, you denied help and told 'JUST GET IT DONE'.
The salary is very, very poor for the work expectations and demands on the employees - employees are NOT HAPPY that work there. The turnover rate is extremely high.
Don't jeopardize your mental health, your self esteem or time working here.
Horrible manager Employees were good but the manager expected of you in the first week was unrealistic then what manager expect from you , equipment for example the RF scanner guns we go off-line every hour and stay down for 20 minutes or more and then manager will get upset that you weren’t fast enough doing inventory even when The manager knows the problems with the RF scanners and yet would blame you
Management doesn't care about its people. Always looking to write someone up and threaten jobs rather than take accountability, train or have a discussion that isn't one sided and your input means nothing. Decent "work friends" but the common bond is venting about how sh!tty this place is. Work/Life balance is non existent because even when you're not there you're venting at home and dreading the next day
Great weight loss program, lift heavy stinky things and sweat for 12hrs.
Really good benefits and pays well for a 4 day work week. Would be nice if we could start earlier instead of 7am. Pressured to find new business and upsell all the time even though we have a sales team. Isn't that's what a sales team does?.....not here!!
Worked as a CSR /supervisor for 17 full years giving my blood sweat and tears only to witness several management changes... several wrongful dismissals of long term employees including myself.!!!! Management was poor for the entire term I was employed.... several complaints from several customers about no follow up phone calls / visitations...was strictly on the CSR to maintain the business.... work overload to the extreme.....many hours worked unpaid for...no employee appreciation whatsoever !!!! Treated like a # more then a human being.....17 yrs of being treated like a dog.....glad I'm out !!! Havent been this happy in 17 yrs !!!!!! Do not recommend!!!!!!!! Take ur business or your employee opportunities elsewhere!!!...
I reported directly to the fleet manager and performed short-haul driving services between Vancouver and Kamloops.
I found the fleet manager to be an expert in his field, very helpful and supportive of the drivers need to keep the trucks in top shape and ready to run. Any reports of defects to the fleet manager was dealt with immediately. The fleet manager was professional enough to brief the driver of any repairs done to his assigned truck prior to his shift starting which was very refreshing to see in this industry. There was no sense of frustration between the driver and the fleet manager.
Their double-deck shuttle trailer similar to a car hauler configuration has very high centre of gravity, manual air bag release that's slow to reinflate, and no sliding axles; requires careful loading procedures to ensure load is balanced properly. The trailer is very low to the ground and will scrape the dock ramp if you don't wait long enough to reinflate.
Their location is transit-accessible.
There was good work-life balance in the trucking job. 99% Chance of sleeping in your own bed and not needing an alarm to wake up. Scheduling has some built-in flexibility so your runs are not too rushed.
This was one of those rare moments in trucking where you felt respected as a human being and as a professional driver.
Fleet manager is an expert professional, Excellent low-stress work culture, good fleet safety, good opportunity for exercise, Good for highly experienced and skilled drivers who want to flex their talents, helpful in-house payroll officer
Excessive Cab noise, Yard is small for semi-trucks, Management/Union relationship seemed strained
