Company Culture

At the end there was too much micro-management from corporate. Lost all trust & confidence

Support from management

Coroporate management has gotten worse. District management always had your back

Teamwork

District teamwork was some of the best I've worked with.

Freedom to work independently

Workload was always fair. Everyone enjoyed their job.

Internal Communication

Communication at the district level was normally current & passed along to all employees

Gender Equality

Women at the district level were an integral park of the team. Never treated as infearier.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Hiring practices were always fair. Age, gender or race were never an issue.

Career Development

Career advancement was available if one considered a transfer. Employee training lacked to inspire moving on.

Overall compensation for your work

Salaries & benefits were some of the best. No complaints.

Office / Work Environment

Working conditions were always up to standard & continuously being improved

Environmental Friendliness

The company is continuously addressing enviromental concerns & regularly donates to the community

Work-Life Balance

Taking time off for appointments & vacations were never a problem. Family First attitude.

Job Security

Everyones job is at risk in this business. I thought my job was stable.

Handicapped Accessibility

Accessibility to disabled employees was always present.

Workplace Safety

Safety is always #1 on everyones mind. Regular safety meetings covering new topics eac week.

Challenging Work

I had almost 5 years working with some of the best people in my career. If I could build another team. They all would be my recruits.

Inclusive / Diverse

Our team was always looking for improvements to do the various tasks better.

Suggestions for improvement

  • When things are working like clockwork at a district. Don't disturb what that team has going. Use what they are doing to improve other districts.

What I like about the company

My stress level went way down when I started with Trican. My team was some of the best employees that anyone could ask for.

What I dislike about the company

The micro-management from upper management that was taking place prior to my layoff.
