“The moment that has meant the most to me in this industry was when I became the first female sales rep for CBM. It was a groundbreaking forward-thinking decision that CBM made to put a woman on the road selling concrete. The concrete industry was predominately men and I was faced with the challenge of changing the mindset of women in concrete. The challenge was accepted!”

  • How much does AZ/DZ license driver training cost? Where do I receive training?

    If you’d like formal training before taking your AZ/DZ license exam, we’d recommend considering a Truck Training School Association of Ontario (TTSAO) certified-school.

    Choosing a school that is a member of the TTSAO ensures that you will receive a consistent standard level of training. The TTSAO is a recognized professional association within the transportation industry.

    The costs per program vary pending location and school which you can check out here: Getting this type of professional training really gets you well ready for not only your AZ/DZ license exam, but for a rewarding and safe career as a Delivery Professional.

  • How long does driver training take?

    Assuming you already have your AZ/DZ, many producers budget 3 – 4 weeks for by-employer training of drivers on an earn & learn capacity. These programs will vary by hiring producer, so this is a great question to ask for additional details when applying directly with them.

  • Do I need to speak English?

    The rewarding thing about being a Concrete Delivery Professional is that you are more than a driver. You are part of a team. You will be communicating constructively with your team at your concrete plant and you will be communicating productively with the customer on the job site. As such, speaking English is a general requirement of hiring concrete producers in Ontario.

  • Protection when alone on-site/at night?

    To start, to Concrete Ontario and its members, #SafetyMatters. This is an excellent question and definitely worth reading here, as well as discussing with your potential hiring concrete producer.

    If you are a Concrete Delivery Professional, it would be unusual that you would be the last person at your home plant at night. More typically it is the plant superintendent/supervisor/batcher who would be the last person at the site.

    In rural / suburban plant settings, it is typically only for “special” jobs that concrete is poured into the night. In these situations – these special jobs usually involve a lot of people, both from the contractor, as well as the concrete supplier. As such – for these “unusual hour” pours, it would not be the norm that you would ever be alone on site or at the plant.

    In urban city centers, there is much more concrete poured on a 24-hour clock, but again anything “after hours” is usually to special large jobs that would engage many people from the concrete supplier and contractor.

    The concrete industry is committed to safety. This is an excellent question and beyond the general practices / situations described here, it makes sense to ask this question of the potential hiring producer to understand their specific situation details, policies, and support in this regard.

    In addition, many hiring producers have special policies to ensure safety around their plants. Here are some examples to give you an idea, noting this is a great topic to discuss with your hiring producer:

    Example 1 ~ No employees working alone in plants.
    Example 2 – Mandatory buddy system for plant lockups in the evening (usually not involving a Concrete Delivery Professional).

  • What happens if I have a childcare issue during the day (I.e. Sick child at school)

    Processes and policies around personal emergencies and absenteeism from work vary by producer. Our industry generally supports safety and family first.

  • How old will my truck be?

    Age of trucks varies by ready-mix concrete producer. Due to some changes from the MTO related to SPIF laws, many of the older ready-mixed concrete trucks have been taken off the road and replaced with newer models. Typical average age of fleets ranges from brand new models up to 20 years old, noting you should also discuss age of trucks and manual vs automatic transmission with the hiring producer if of concern or important for you.

  • How flexible are the hours? What are my typical hours of work?

    Construction remains one of the most essential occupations in the Ontario economy and is a key economic driver of the financial success of our province and country. Because of this construction work takes place 24 hours a day and seven days per week and major construction projects are divided into multiple shifts and crews to complete this work as quickly as possible.
    With that being said, the majority of the construction work is conducted as follows:

    • Typical work week is from Monday to Friday with occasional projects taking place on Saturdays
    • Non-standard construction projects (i.e. major infrastructure / road projects or plant shut-down work) can have multiple construction shifts outside these normal hours, including evening / nights for some producers
    • While MTO driver requirements limit the maximum length of any shift to 14 hours, Concrete Producers can work with drivers to accommodate work needs as required.

    Typical hours of work vary by hiring producer.

    Here are some examples for typical hours of work as published in some of our hiring members’ job postings:

    Example 1: Variation of scheduled start and end times (start times 6:00AM to 9:00AM) and end (6:00PM to 9:00PM)

    Example 2: Typical business hours are 5am-7pm operations. Hours worked may fluctuate based on customer demand, time of year (summer vs winter) and rank on seniority list.
