Got very boring. Hard to get along with many people working here. Wasn't a bad experience by any means just very average. I am not sure if I would recommend a friend to work here. Straightforward work though and fairly
simple.

Company policy is no letters or phone recommendations allowed. Asked and was told 3 times during interview there would be plenty of work even after the slowdown. Refused other opportunities for permanent positions. Slowdown came and was let go. Workers and drivers were helpful. Management only in it for the numbers. Tell you whatever as long as they look good.

Management is inexperienced to the point of making decisions about customers based on who makes their job easier ...pushes to the point of ridiculous...pay is below average. Co workers and the Union/benefits are the only benefit. I would not recommend lightly, but it is a paycheck...weekends off.

Great work/life balance and corporate culture. There is definitely employee loyalty and support and some staff will go above and beyond to make you comfortable

The times I was going to school really worked well with this company. The Good news is that they have a summer relief position that really helped me get some money together for the next semester. Would totally work there again

I felt that the onsite management was not the one having final say over things at the local site. Having a Head Office, they have final say. I felt there was a big lack of communication between myself and the HR at the Head Office which lead to complications.

Pay and benefits are great. Management allows Brandi the Billing Supervisor to play favourites. She would evaluate you as not doing enough when she decides she doesn't like you. She would only allow certain people whom she favors to play their music or be on their phones. The only people she can't touch are the ones who has been there longer than her. You have to suck up to her to if you want to work at VanKam long term. Good luck.

its a trucking company. what you get out of it directly relates to what you put into it. there is lots of work and ways to help the company grow.i learned to drive a forklift, load a semi truck safely. eventually i learned to shunt trailers and hook up rocky mountian twin 53 foot sets.i learned the lower mainland area and how to direct freight to be delivered

I'm presently working there doing line haul at night. Not very satisfied with the pay. Some runs pay well and other runs don't pay very well. Looking for something else right now. Good trucks, well maitained. Overall good transport company. They only need to review the pay for certain runs. If you're a good driver, you'll get all the worse runs with heavy three axel trailers.
Points positifs
Great night dispatch, good trucks.
Points négatifs
Pay for certain runs need to be reviewed.

One of the better trucking companies because they pay for most of the time on the job including: chaining up, road closure standby time, and waiting for trailers to be loaded/unloaded.

Good benefit package including long and short disability, which is handy because the job is dangerous at times - several drivers have had serious illnesses and injuries requiring long periods off from work.


Unfortunately they have lost some big contracts and cut drivers mileage resulting in lower pay - 20% in the past 2 years.


Equipment is sub par and they don't do speedy repairs resulting in break downs.


Management are difficult to deal with, every problem is automatically the driver's fault and they won't listen to your side of the story unless you have proof, cover your rear every day is the name of the game, or you'll be hauled on to the carpet.


Advice to Management: increase business so that driver wages can go back up to pre 2016 levels and this will help to stop driver turn over.


Find better managers who look to solve problems rather than finding ways to blame and harass the drivers.
Points positifs
Good co-workers and good benefits
Points négatifs

I worked here for half a year as a clerk. I didn't get along with many people but the job was OK. A typical day is in the truck for about 3 hours and the rest by the paper splitting desk and on you're computer desk either billing or doing something else. The hardest part of the job was the people who I worked with. The job was fairly easy.

Overall the job was fine.
Points positifs
Salary, The job was alright
Points négatifs

Terrible place to work
The dispatch is very unorganized and blatantly lies to customers to make the drivers look bad when there freight is late. The drivers are not supported by the company at all they look for anything to reprimand you. The owners enjoy making it tough for the drivers and obviously don’t give a hoot about them. Some of the trucks and equipment are in poor working order.
Points positifs
If you like to be constantly yelled at and disrespected this is the place to work
Points négatifs
Long hours no life work Balance - forced OT, Don’t try and make a doctors appointment etc dispatch goes out of its way to mess you up

Mostly nights and LCV's. The management try as hard as possible to accomadate personal schedules. Dispatchers work with you though sometimes you need to have patience. A lot of good men work there and a few that benefit from a good union. mostly a good place to work

The management are unprofessional jerks that feel they can talk to anyone however they want. The owner is a MAJOR jerk. The dock workers themselves are mostly ok. But the union only fights for long term members. If your only looking for part time work, it's all you will get for a very long time!
Points positifs
Loose atmosphere with coworkers!
Points négatifs
Management tyranny, not full time

Great union position, delivering goods locally, and home every night. Can't ask for better.

Newer equipment, and great management, gives a great wrok environment. Thank you.
