“We are looking for Dispatchers in our Operations department,” says Ben Morrison, who is with the Human Resources team. “They work with the Truck Driver assigning and coordinating loads.
“We are also looking for Customer Service Representatives, who make sure our customers’ needs are met.”
New incentive for Truck Drivers
Kim Jamieson, who is with the Human Resources team, says their pay package has changed. “Within the last year we changed from a mileage pay package to a by-hour pay package. To our knowledge, we are the only trucking company in Atlantic Canada offering this incentive.
“A few companies in Ontario offer this, and we feel we are breaking the mold in this region. It’s been working great for us in recruiting Drivers who want better pay and better hours. They feel less stress about recording mileage, and they are being paid when they are on duty.”
