Choosing a Career in the Transportation Industry
Choosing a job is hard, and choosing a career is even harder. Here at Erb Transport, we try to make it a little easier. As you probably know, Erb Transport is Canada’s number one refrigerated transportation company, which may be why we employ roughly 1,500 loyal Canadians who deeply enjoy their careers with us. Many of our employees never thought that the transportation industry would be the right fit for them, but after seeing our multi-faceted company firsthand, they quickly realized this industry was more than meets the eye.
The first step is choosing the transportation industry. This is the easiest part. At this stage, you need to decide that you would like to get paid to travel across Canada and see this beautiful country inside and out. You need to decide that the transportation industry is right for you.
Once you’ve decided that being part of a stable and expanding industry is a good fit for you, the next step is to ensure that you pick the right company. In one of Canada’s oldest industries, it’s important to pick a company that balances both growth and stability. Transportation should focus on maintaining the original sustainability of the industry, while expanding and changing as time goes on. It’s also important to pick a company with strong values and goals. That’s why here at Erb, we focus on being a company that can benefit our employees just as much as they benefit us.
That’s why we offer:
• Unbeatable benefits
• Bonus programs
• Wages based on experience
• Paid overtime (drops/pickups, inspections, delays, etc.)
• Transfers between terminals and positions with no lost seniority
• TFSA, RRSP, & RESP
The transportation industry is not a job, it’s a career. It’s rewarding, beneficial, and always growing. Next time you may be thinking of your future, think of transportation. And, if it just happens to pop into your mind, think of Erb.
