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
Bonus at the end of the summer
lifting full Propane cylinders
I’ve been employed with the company since April 2021. Really enjoy the work. Have been on some awesome drives and deal with amazing customers. Management have been supportive from day one and are kind, considerate, and very respectful. Shifts are an average of 10-14 hours a day from Monday to Friday. Routes are pretty basic and the work is straight forward. The option for overtime is there if you want to work to make the extra money. The job is physically demanding but if you work safely and smart you can get a good routine going. The day flies by so quickly! Overall, I’m happy to be a part of a company that actually appreciates its employees and makes you feel like family! Highly recommend this job for any driver, especially new drivers.
Great drives, stay active and fit, great management and support staff.

Thank you for sharing your work experience with us! It is great to see that you enjoy working out of our Casselman yard with the logistics team and management. We look forward to your continued employment with us.
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
Do you like being home? Do you like knowing what days you work and what days you will have off? Are you human? If you answered 'Yes' to any of these...RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN! This is seriously one of the WORST companies to work for, ESPECIALLY as a DRIVER. You'll never have a reliable schedule or know what days you will work or have off, much less know how long you will work, or where you will be driving to. Everything is a surprise - and they expect you to be available 24/7, with zero notice. The job itself will physically destroy you. Each truck holds between 5-13 tons (yes, TONS) of BBQ tanks, and they expect you to MANUALLY unload each one, using nothing but your own hands, in all weather conditions. Expect to have major back, joint, and muscle problems. Whatever logistics tells you, if they tell you anything, is either wrong or will change. Always expect the opposite of what you are told. Did they say you can take a day off? Be prepared for them to change their minds at the last minute. Did they tell you that you won't have to work weekends? Be prepared to work weekends. There are no 'Yes' and 'No' answers at this company. Everything is a 'Maybe'. There is nothing good about working here.

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.
