Administrative Assitant (Current Employee), Houston, TX – February 4, 2014
The overall company is a good company. Management does value and show appreciation to certian employees and not all employees. My typical work day is that I can never get my own work accomplished becuase I have people coming up to me to assist them with other things not in my job description. I should be considered Office Administrator for all of the – more... work that I do in the company. – less
Shop Supervisor (Former Employee), Cleveland, UT – January 22, 2014
Overall the company has a good maintenance program lined up for their fleet, but the branch I worked for was in a bad location so any commercial work was very hard to get which in turn I believe added to the closure of the branch.
Traffic Supervisor (Former Employee), Geismar, LA – April 28, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: they don't care about you as a person or that you might have a family.
I had high hopes for this company... But working in Geismar was a nightmare and when I tried to transfer they would not let me even. Long days - 12 hours. Calls at home ALL THE TIME when you're supposed to be off. They don't care about family life at all, at least not in the Geismar terminal. I really enjoyed my times spent in the Texas operations for – more... training and visiting and would loved to have been allowed to transfer there, but they would rather lose their good help than allow them to transfer. They have a very high turnover rate in their management and supervisors at the terminal levels... signs of problems that they choose to ignore at the corporate level. – less
Class a drive otr (Current Employee), Louisville, KY – March 25, 2013
Pros: good home time
Cons: they want to much free stuff
I think trimac is a grate place to work I'm happy there the only thing I don't like is the way they pay you , when your getting unloaded it takes about 2 hours you don't get payed for it , but anything after 2 hours you get 15 a hour ,it's 40 cents a mile but you drive 100 miles you only get payed for 75 miles I'm always thinking it's not worth it cause – more... they want to much free stuff from you , but I put up with it cause they treat me like family , if I need a day off I just ask an it's ok I'm home every other day an I usually get a good pay check last year I made 30000 the year before made.50 000 , if you want to work your butt off the money there I didn't work that much an still made out good – less

U.S. Recruiter (Former Employee), Houston, TX – January 11, 2013
Pros: there are some outstanding people that work there.
Cons: the shorting of good drivers, and finding them.
I provided a full range of recruiting for 21 branches. Including working with branch personal, drivers and upper management. I also enjoyed traveling to each branch for a wide range of support and hiring events. As a ex-Owner-Operator I understood both views from the driver and management. This would help when issues would arise.
Everyday was like going to school, fantastic advancement
Branch Manager (Former Employee), Hayward, CA – December 22, 2012
Pros: great company to work for, being in control of your own destiny
Cons: health insurance, pay scale
I started with Trimac as a Traffic Supervisor. I completed my contract with them as a multiple Branch Manager. I had the greatest opportunity to be promoted three times within a four year period. This was only achieved by having the perfect mentor. I was put under the wing of the most achieved, well rounded Managers know throughout the tanker industry. – more... There is just too much for me to list concerning what I had learned. Once again with the grooming that Trimac takes with all their managers. I had a perfect set of office, shop, and driving force. The biggest obstacle that I once again found frustrating. Being in two places at the same time. Yes, all task could be met without physically being present. I just found that as a manager the more chances you have to intermingle with all your employees the happier your environment becomes. I can not deny the accomplishment of being a upper level manager. I found myself running to work for the simple fact of other needing me. – less
