Dock Worker/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 11, 2018
It's very disappointing when you get let go because another company purchases the company and they all tell you that you were going to have a job that they're going to keep all employees to keep the work going and then they let all part-time employees go

Company was bought out.
The new company had a plan to not pay for the laying off of the old employees. They "hired" on half the staff and immediately fired the other half. Then they waited two weeks and basically "released" the remaining staff. This way they got around the law.

Good place to work. Management was fair and provided the necessary support and avenues to get the job done. Equipment was new and safe. Good group of hard working fellow employees. Got excellent base for future management opportunities. Prepared me well for my next job.
Claims Support Team Member (Former Employee) – Gibsonia, PA – February 6, 2018
I joined the Vitran team in its waning years - I didn't get to see it in its glory but, instead, was there when it went under and was bought out by a company in another state. Our options were to either move to Michigan or be laid off.
I enjoyed working for the company overall and may have still been with them if they didn't cut my hours to part time hours. My fellow co-workers were fun to work with and knowledgeable. It was one of the jobs I had that looking back I wish I would have been able to keep.

at the time I worked here they were transitioning to new ownership so everything was up in the air. they did offer hour lunches which was great and the work was constant however there was no way of knowing when you would come in and no longer be employed. the also did not inform me in advance when my position was terminated until I came in to work .
Excellent working environment, very well organized environment to work in and the people were excellent to work for and work with. A typical day at work would begin with getting into the flow of what was going on as it involved setting up the peddles for that particular day. Finding out how many peddle were being set up that day and how to load freight for each particular peddle trailer. Coordinating the inbound freight to be delivered that day with the pick ups that had been called in and deciding which drivers would handle each peddle.It was a very fast paced environment that would be ever changing throughout the day. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing at the end of the day what you had accomplished as a team.
