    I have been working at Vitran Express full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent Dept. - at least before PJAX acquisition. Excellent management and a great place to work. We had access to training on a project basis only so additional access to training would have been nice. We used best of breed solutions and followed best practices as often as practical. Overall, very satisfied with position, co-workers, management and company.

    Cons

    raises were non-existent for a few years and very small other years. hard to get pay increases without a promotion. more access to training would have been beneficial to both myself and my co-workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More frequent raises would be nice.
