Apologies!
I was told by a friend on Kindersley last year that the Americans had stopped them coming in. Something to do with a bad carrier profile. Also when I was back last year I didn't see a single Kindersley truck south of the border.
Has something changed? Or did I just miss them all??

They do have some newer stuff ,DEF tanks etc , and although the fleet looks scabby mainly due to the poor livery at least it's all paid for , no leasing for those guys .

what part o siemens?......kindersley transport.HWT,edge,
remember different depots in different provinces.
imo ..when i was over doing interviews /drives ,,not being fun ny but every company we visited we received coffee/sandwich ,a few lunch ..siemens not even a coffee.,even H&R gave us a feed!!
siemens treated my family the worst out of all the companies we visited,the recruiter totally ignored my wife when she asked questions!,
yes it was me she wanted as a driver but they did not understand .....a happy wife is a happy life!
We decided if this is how it was before i started what would it be like after i started. jimmy

ok..you seem to want to go to Edmonton only so..#1..look up transport companies in Edmonton on the www .find one that does a job YOU CAN DO and then find out as much good or bad about them ....then # phone up recruiting and ask if they would employ an experienced driver from ^^^^.and if you can visit Edmonton tell them you will call in when over to talk!! as this is british expats i would expect you to be british so no language barrier.
#2 or go on kijiji edmonton .jobs .driver/security for a look at available jobs and if you want put a j,ob wanted ad on, with your experience and the line need a LMO>
#3 get your shit together!!! check that you are allowed into Canada (criminal record)and perhaps the USA as well.,get driver print out from DLVA ..showing your clean licence ish,
references etc..
its a fact that drivers over here move around every few years and if you show a prospective employer that you have lasted a while at jobs thats a good thing ,,,,,my first employer in Canada was stunned i drove for the same company for 20yrs.!
go on driver forums and read what other people say about certain companies.
and if you are thinking Edmonton big money on the patch crap ,,forget it it aint happening !!!you will not get PR on that sort o work.if you are not interprovincial driving so back home in 4yrs.iirc.(max).
for all that remember you are just meat on the seat! you will be treated as a rookie,your hiab licence means nothing,forklift the same ,you do it the Canadian way or no way at all
not trying to put you off .
