Typical large corporation
Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) –  Portage, INJuly 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.
Pros
benefits, guarantee pay
Cons
lazy slow people

Manager (Former Employee) –  Fairburn, GAJuly 11, 2017
Good Company to work for. No work life balance. May require some long hours as well as weekend work. Good benefits. New management could use some managerial and coaching classes.

Dirty job that would take many months to perfect

Good place to obtain chem haul experience, but do thorough pretrips!!!
Company Driver (Current Employee) –  Memphis, TNJune 4, 2017
The Swift of the tanker haul game. Actually, equipment wise, Trimac is far worse. $72,000 annual is a lie. Expect no more than $52,000 annual if based out of Tennessee as a company driver.

Hard place to thrive in
Administrative Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 2, 2017
Managment changes often, people are let go with no warning. Layoffs are a trend at this place. The office politics is out of hand, and no confidentiality.
Pros
nice parties
Cons
layoffs

Great place to learn tankers but falls off quickly after that
Class A OTR Tanker Driver (Current Employee) –  Geismar, LAApril 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, TXApril 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.

Good safe company
Driver (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAApril 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
Pros
Good management
Cons
Too much away time.

Horrible Management
Professional Driver Pneumatic Tank (Former Employee) –  Holly Hill, SCMarch 19, 2017
Horrible Management that doesn't care about workers, look at them as tools instead of people. They lure you in with a guarantee, and then proceed to do anything in their power to keep you below it.
Pros
Home everyday

can't make a living
Tanker Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Hayward, CAMarch 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.
Pros
none
Cons
wages hours

Great pay, benefit packages.
Traffic Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Hayward, CAJanuary 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.
Pros
great pay, great benefits
Cons
Hard to move up, too many directors/layers of management, lots of responsibility for even lower level employees

Pensacola Terminal
Ex driver (Former Employee) –  Pensacola, FLJanuary 16, 2017
Stay away from here. There is no work locally or regional. You will have to stay on the road and away from home to survive. If you like life away from home then Pensacola is right for you.
