hard to earn a living - work not steady sometimes 2-3 days go by no work .. over hired crew shuttle drivers not enough work for all the drivers to earn a decent living - management want you to be available 7 days - 24 hours - you are on call as a driver and you can be called to come into work and pick up a crew anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour notice..
Points positifs
work outside driving long distance casual wear friendly train crew
Points négatifs
24-7 work schedule if you want to earn a living too many drivers not enough work -old vans 400, 000 to 500, 000 kms

JUST LIKE MOST COMPANIES HALLCON IS DESTROYING THEIR BREAD AND BUTTER. They just turn over people just as much as a gardener or farmer turns over their soil every year.
Points négatifs
It was a Con a HallCon

Low pay, on call, unpredictable hours. No benefits and useless union

Little to no training. Expected to take anything and everything. If you refuse a trip for a legitimate reason you get punished with no trips and get placed on bottom of board. Company supplied nothing as to bennifits no overtime no nothing just jump and run for just above minimum wages. Upper management avoids talking to drivers . No safety culture. Log books as to hours of service are not used or checked.

Very poor pay for hours and responsibility. Local supervisor ok. No schedule. Purely on call. Long hours in often poor conditions in remote locations.

You are expected to show up no matter the weather or your safety. Doesn’t matter if you’re tired from driving you’re expected to finish your shift. And you’ll be driving at night, in very poor visibility and bad roads at times.

Like any job, you need to show up on time, work hard, and pay attention. The vehicles are well taken care of, and the cleaning process is pretty straightforward. It can be a bit cumbersome walking out to a train when its raining, but, its not that big of a deal. its not an EASY job, but, the hours go by quick. Great people to work for
Points positifs
Hard work followed by slower time
Points négatifs
late, LATE hours

Got fired 2 days before Christmas. No explanation was provided. Luckily, I was already in the process of finding better employment.

Warning to all:

You will have to clean puke, humanely fluids and dirty syringes. Luckily, I avoided being poked but I can't say the same for my prior colleagues. It's a terrible job for min wage pay.

I've worked for hallcon on and off for 13 years when I got hired it was great everybody new everyone, communication was great information was accurate but gradually every year things got worse. Your no longer known or addressed by your name, you are driver whatever your number was. It really was a bad, don't do it.

Take my advice and don’t work here. The culture is terrible. Hourlies have to run and scramble for very low pay. The company is hiring daily because 80% quit in there first week. Managers are mislead. Promised company vehicles, laptops, expense cards and flexible hours only to be provided with none of it. You will hate your life if you work here. Hourlies are better off working in a fast food joint. Managers should avoid this career killing, Mickey Mouse company like the plague. It’s run by a few self entitled cowards.

Got hired at Hallcon, a week went by and never heard from them until I called them. Finally he picked me up for a 4 hour training shift which I was promised I was going to get paid. Picked up a minivan with 400000km on it and the seats were not properly bolted to the floor, the tires were bald and the windshield was so cracked it looked like a deer probably smashed through it. Drove it around for 4 hours looking at numerous CN bunk houses. Once the day was done, I was told I would start next weekend. The weekend came and went and I even turned down a 2nd job I was supposed to start on the week thinking I would be working with these guys. They never called so I called them on Monday and was told I would start next Friday. Never heard from them and could not get a hold of them. I called dispatch and was told they don't even have a supervisor in my area. A week later my so called hiring manager called me and asked if I was still interested. I said I was but I was hoping to have started 2 weeks ago. They said they would call me in 2 days and never heard from them again. And never got paid for my training either. Not only lost a 2nd part time job because of these guys but never started with Hallcon in the first place and lost 3 weeks of my life with no pay because of it. This company will lie to you and you will probably get into a severe accident from the most unsafe vans on planet.

There isn't many good things I can say about my position at Hallcon as a yard driver/road driver. We get paid less than what other driving/taxi companies pay. Yard jobs are okay if you can hold one with your seniority. If you apply for a position posted as a yard job, make sure to inquire if it's temporary or not, they won't tell you upfront. If it is temporary, when the person you're replacing comes back you will be bumped onto road jobs. Worst job ever! The vans they use to transport the train crews are falling apart and constantly need repairs that the company seldom wants to fix. Driving 10+ hours in a day, in a van that is going to fall apart, no AC and it's 80+F outside...it's not right for us as the driver or the train crews we transport. Definitely don't get paid enough for this. As a road driver you will be on a 'spareboad' where dispatcher will call the first person at the top of the list for a driving job. You're on call for them 24/7 and hallcon won't give you standby pay. Hallcon also won't give you notice for the calls to get ready. Most companies that have a spareboard will give 1 or 2 hour call. Not Hallcon, they expect you to be ready and go right when they call you. I can go on and on about the driving side of the company. I'm sure most people who work in the offices for Hallcon have great jobs, just not the road and yard drivers. We seem to get the short end of the stick when we are the people who keep the company running. Without drivers Hallcon wouldn't be able to transport train crews. Maybe they should start treating us better, but that will be the day.
Points positifs
Never get to see a boss because they live too far away to drive here
Points négatifs
Long hours driving, fleet vehicles falling apart, on call 24/7 with no oncall pay, the list goes on and on

You basically clean go trains all day for 5 hours. The pay isn’t great considering the hours but you get good benefits and the management is great to work with and easy to get along with.
Points positifs
Benifits, healthy work atmosphere.
Points négatifs
The job can get dirty at times.

My supervisor was a liar. She told me to take a couple of days off to recover from my wrist injury. I gave her a doctor's note on my return. Hoping for modified duties. She then informed me that I was fired. Hallcon dismissed me one my ROE as "quit", I did not
The man who hired me was really nice, informative and professional.

Benefits were awesome, it included dental.

The hours were my fave, done in the afternoon and off on weekends.

The staff I worked with were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

They had lockers, changerooms and a lunch room.

Regular lunch break.

Lots if exercise

I do feel we didn't get paid enough for all the work we were doing in such a short amount of time.
Points positifs
Done early, no weekends, benefits
Points négatifs
Too much expected for such little pay, don't get injured, they lied about "modified duties"
