Ah they are recruiting from UK so that will be why you can’t find online.
I will ask for you though. I’ll let you know if they want your details.

Interesting didn't know they were recruiting at the moment, I was speaking to someone that works there and he said that all positions were full. I have been trying to get on there but from within canada.

hi
Yes things are great thankyou. I completed the training and now out driving. We all got our own brand new trucks. I am currently on reset in California.
Loblaws is great to work for. Have really looked after us. Onspec the immigration that takes over with the process of getting here are a nightmare. You will need a lot of patience. Though I heard Loblaws was going to start dealing with the immigration part themselves.
It is expensive in Regina. Rents are high and hard to find. Loblaws does help with that. Food expensive too. Cost of living is not as cheap as we were told in job advert. Hard to earn what we told also. The example given was the top earner who basically lives on the road and takes any job any time.
Having said that earnings are still good but I’d say expect to earn roughly what you did in UK plus a bit more. A trip takes longer than we were told. A trip to California and back is 7 days. Tight on driver hours and is why I’m resetting here as not enough hours to get back.
Regina is a great place to live . Summers are great. Always hot and sunny lots to do.
I’ve rented a house bought a Dodge Ram I love it here.
good luck with everything

CaraUKtoCanada thanks so much for response. That is really helpful.
we did go into it with open minds and I told my husband to look at the lower wage range they give rather than the top earner so we were pretty prepared to that.
we also guessed a run to cali would be 6-8 days so that’s good to know also.
Luckily we have friends in Regina who would help us find somewhere to live etc.

did you find the ‘training wage’ okay when you started? Was there any unexpected expenses?
