Great place to work!

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
I have been with the company for 4 years now. They have taught me a lot, not only about the job but about myself! Management is flexible with hours and days you need to work. This is a fairly young person job I would say, unless you're management. You need to be able to lift 20 and 30lb's as it is tanks you're lifting. Drivers work about 14 hours per shift and production isn't far behind that in the summer months. If you work hard and show potential management will see this and give you recognition.

Points positifs

Considered an essential service, good benefits after 6 months, positive place to work

Points négatifs

Trucks are shared among drivers

Great Place To Work

Tank Traders is a great place to work. It is a fast paced, physical job with awesome people. This job can be as good as you choose to make it. If you are upbeat, willing to grow as a person, want to learn new skills, further develop old ones and aren't afraid of putting in an honest days work; this is a great job. There is plenty of room for advancement, company health benefits and due to being deemed as an essential service has remained open during the entire course of the pandemic.

Work hard

Working for the company is not that bad if you want to work for poverty. Minimum wage is ridiculous for the work that you do. Unless you live at your parents house, good luck paying the rent.

It’s a job

The company has no really want to do anything but get as many tanks out the door each month as they can. People are getting hurt left and right and for obvious reasons. When you manually move 6000 lbs if material “ propane tanks” in a day you’re bound to get hurt. Hours are long and really the only way you can make any money with overtime. Oh yeah you can only get overtime after 88 hours in two weeks

productive

Alright place to work if you are part of the yard crew, good hours, not too sure about benefits, home every night. Can be fast paced at times, but most part fairly easy going.

Boy, I tell you h'what!

The job posting lies. You will be paid nigh minimum wage and you will most likely stay there. They advertise benefits after six months; you will not be here six months as the shop shuts down in September and only certain positions stay on. I can't imagine why you'd want to work here in the -40 winters, anyway. You'll be breaking your back with 40+ pound bottles of propane — don't forget that you must take one in each hand! — 10 hours a day. Apparently, 10 hours a day is "optional", but they conveniently forgot to tell their staff that until just this month. Still hoping to "enjoy summer" like the ad says with those perfect summer hours? Lol, you're gonna be here six days a week and when you do go home, you'll be too tired, sunburnt, and sore to even think about anything other than sleep. Your "cell leaders" are either mouthy teens or adults who act like teens, and they just finished a Jimi Hendrix experience or popping pills in their car on break. Stand still for a second and they're all over you like Amy Schumer on a glazed ham, but they'll spend the next 20 - 30 minutes standing around talking about video games with the forklift operator. Oh, and the longest any cell leader I met had been working for the company was just two months. Just about all their staff had quit in June, so the then-new guys were basically just given the new title. Also, it's not really clear what the chain of command is. People with the yellow vests (cell leaders) constantly give conflicting orders, but as far as I can tell, none of them actually outrank each other. Cell-leaders get to park - 

Points positifs

There are no pros to be found here; the staff are all newbies.

Points négatifs

There are, however, many cons to be found

Only if your hurting..Very fast pace, body crippling slave work, underpaid, such a joke

It is completely ridiculous, the "cell leaders" all they do is give orders and stand around and talk while the new people do all the work. They say team work is key but that is not the case here. It's kind of a complete joke the way they run the place. One will give orders then another will come and not like how it's done so they make us redo it. To many people giving orders

Head Office is one of the worst I've ever seen

They do not care about you or your safety, all they care about is numbers and their own butts. They either A. Make you work with broken trucks and equipment that can cause severe accidents or B. Send you bottles to fill with huge holes that burn your skin and tell you to deal with it.

Points positifs

Work friends

Terrible place to work

Terrible place to work the company does not care about you or your health they do not fix machines properly and the expect to you to reach very unrealistic goals they expect you to give most of not all your weekends in the summer to the company and will not give u time off so you can kiss your summer goodbye the heads off the company have there heads so far up there butts I'm scared there going to turn themselves inside out there is zero safety and its very easy to get hurt I could go on and on but if you still think you could work here after the review this far nothing I say is going to stop you.

Points positifs

People lots of hours in summer (but they are mandatory)

Points négatifs

Head office sucks, not a safe place to work nothing works right

Good place to work

very good place to work overall, you start at 6am, you get breaks through out the day, two 15s and one 30, youll either be sorting tanks, washing them, or filling them, they let you use headphones unless you are filling tanks, for obvious safety reasons

Unless you're desperate, stay away

The wages are low, the work is heavy, and the equipment needed serious repairs and updating. The trailers are all used, and the company-owned tractors seriously need replacement (the leased units were OK). The worst part of the job is that the wages are LOW - very low. There's no way a Class 1 driver hauling dangerous goods should be getting paid $22/hr. You also pay for ALL meals while on the road, and there's no allowance for it. You DO get a small allowance for your cell phone, but $10/month doesn't even come close to covering your use on the company's behalf. Dispatch is extremely optimistic when it comes to scheduling your route, there's no time allotted for things such as meals, accidents, detours, not being able to park close to the cages, etc, etc. You're also required to go to landfills and sort through propane tanks to pick out ones the company can repaint, put a new valve in, and sell as their own - this is part of their business model. All in all, unless you desperately need the work to keep a roof over your head, stay away, stay FAR away. I worked there for the summer of '15 and would never go back.

Points positifs

Very little

Points négatifs

Low wages, poor equipment

it was an OK company to work for

working for Tank Traders wasn't that bad, the routes were very well organized, The equipment was kept in good shape and Management was good to work for , They were kind of set in how things should be done and how long it should take you with not much understanding about how other factors can affect your day

Points positifs

Bonus at the end of the summer

Points négatifs

lifting full Propane cylinders
