Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) – Portage, IN – July 22, 2017
Typical big company with lots of rules. corporate always coming in and pushing so many loads the customer gets annoyed. people who run hard are expected to do extra loads while lazy people intentionally drag their feet and make the hard workers day longer. the branch manager is pretty good if you have an issue or need something they will work with you and try to keep you happy. where they can. dispatcher/traffic monitor always telling you how to do your job when they don't even have a CDL. equipment was ok. trucks are governed and have on board driver assists that are annoying. trailers at the branch I was at are wearing and maintenance is spotty due to trying to cut costs. the work day is ok if you don't get stuck waiting. you can make decent money here if you want to work for it. overall rating is ok. not the best but not the worst. lots of rules and BS.
work environment is great. very family oriented. Not so great on benifits. managers are great and have full knowledge of equipment. very great way to start off as a diesel mechanic and trailer mechanic
Great place to learn tankers but falls off quickly after that
Class A OTR Tanker Driver (Current Employee) – Geismar, LA – April 23, 2017
Benefits are really bad (very high deductibles)
Dispatch doesnt care and dont have a clue. Forget getting intouch with them after hours or weekends. Send you to Canada, get to border and your crossing has not been submitted, no big deal Ill call, wrong no answer, thanks for not doing your job which by the in this case I went to dispatch before leaving for Canada and asked if everything was submitted, yeah sure is was the response lol
Paychecks are constantly messed up, what makes it worse is you have to argue with office ladies at your terminal over your pay and you still wont get paid. This is a weekly or biweekly issue at the Geismar terminal.
Safety is a job, or at our terminal it is
I wouldnt hesitate to use them to get into tankers but run fast as you can once you can jump ship to a better tanker outfit
Fast paced and fun. Loved the customers and drivers
Senior Branch Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) – Beaumont, TX – April 19, 2017
Workload was heavy, so do whatever it takes to get it done. Lots of fun. To understand wash rack better, got D wastewater license. Pretty much did every aspect of jobs at Trimac. Very good place to work. Home office in Canada and very helpful on anything you had questions for.
Driver (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 18, 2017
Trimac is a good place to work. The work is consistent and pays well. Driver health and safety are priorities. There are safety courses online and if you need help they will get you help. I enjoy working with my managers who tell you the truth not the usual run around
Tanker Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – March 3, 2017
Company has gone down hill. From making $25 to making $18 an hour. Company gives drivers less than 40 hours a week and that's their busy season. They advertise that a driver can make 78,000 a year. Not even close.
Traffic Supervisor (Current Employee) – Hayward, CA – January 21, 2017
Huge company, so rather hard to move up due to the requirement of multiple director "approvals." Most of management is very empathetic with the employees. There is a lot of focus on retention but only for the driver force. Seems to be a lot of turn over for management level employees.
great pay, great benefits
Hard to move up, too many directors/layers of management, lots of responsibility for even lower level employees
