    I have been working at TransForce (Canada) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Someone is always available to answer questions, assist wit any issues, and to keep you working.

    Cons

    I believe based off of some of the other agencies that I had the pleasure of working for that they could increase their hourly pay rate for their drivers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice is needed. they run a pretty smooth operation.

    Pros

    They find work for you and keep you busy. TransForce is family oriented and will place drivers on assignment that they are interested in.

    Cons

    Some jobs only give you 40 hours a week and you may work at more than one company to get hours when first hired.

    I worked at TransForce (Canada) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    High growth company through acquisition. Sr. Leadership has a lot of abilities, solutions, allowing revenue generating employees a lot of latitude.

    Cons

    High expectations with CEO always wanting unrealistic profit margins, aggressive growth with less and less resources, resulting in lower than market pay, longer hours, older equipment. CEO is also CFO and chairman of "his" board, showing his controlling nature.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO's management style is leadership by fear and intimidation. EVP's and other Sr. leaders work hard, are very competent, and do a decent job shielding operational employees from CEO's management style.

    I worked at TransForce (Canada) full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Home every night off on weekends. Typically close fill-in roles for other driving companies. Gain inside look at various freight transport companies in your local area before hiring on permanently.

    Cons

    Not a permanent company in and of itself. Though if you enjoy changing work style, driving routes it can reduce work boredom.

    hard to evolve in the company as administration is reduced year after year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    help people understand how they can train to evolve in the company, under the impression nothing can be done
