    They were looking to expand their fleet, hiring on O/O's with older trucks not having an age restriction about half a year ago. Never called them back but seemed like a nice small-medium sized company. Think they had around 50 trucks/owner ops

    Bottom of the barrel type freight, new few guys who worked there and nearly went broke. Did have much good things to say about thec place. I believe the kids run the show now and it went down hill since......

    I just spoke with those guys out of curiosity -- and yah, do not look like the best. Their pay is very low and the run driver facing cameras too; so if you like to be watched, then they are for you. =)

    When are people gonna wake up and realize those rear facing cameras are Illegal and an invasion of privacy. These companies are only inforcing this policy to save a few bucks on insurance that they probably don't even pass on to the driver

    I 100% agree! I have no idea why people are not fighting back -- it screams control and distrust right off the bat!

    How is it illegal? Which law states that? It's a private business, if that's how they want to run their business, so be it. Don't like it, don't work there, simple enough.

    It’s a violation of cdn federal privacy laws. If your carrier runs interprovincial it’s also a violation of the PIPEDA act. Sysco was forced to remove them, any company with them and drivers file a labour board complaint looses.
