Short-sighted and money hungry managment
Heavy Equipment Technician (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, ABJuly 21, 2016
Pay was always just slightly less than similar construction equipment dealers. Bosses and managers only look out for themselves. They do not value intelligent and independent skilled trades. 6 years service and no thanks or phone call acknowledgment by anyone in the company. I agree completely with what the person below wrote "If you are a visible minority less likely you are in a managerial position. Managers and up are mostly male. No job security, you can get terminated anytime. No career advancement, you'll get stuck with your level unless you suck up to your supervisor. Being smart and hardworking are not consideration, you should be "known" by the owners to be promoted. Managers enjoy good compensation while staff are lucky to have a job"
Pros
cute secretary
Cons
Micro management, constant surveillance of employees, disorganized

Not a bad place to hone some starting skills
welder (Former Employee) –  skSeptember 2, 2014
Liked working the 10 -4 shift. The shop I worked in had broken concrete floor which Brandt would not fix or get proper cranes even though they were all about safety. Management was always expecting you to work faster but quality was expect to go up. Everything had an expected finish time. Most of the complete times where derived from a guesse as to how fast they wanted it done. Pay was very low to start even though skill was required to do the job and high quality was expected. Managers would promise clients finish dates for orders that where not realistic and pushed you to be faster. Managers couldn't get up for work ! Several times I went home without pay because no one was there to open the shop. Most employees do not speak English but are usually friendly left after I found out that you are going to see a raise of about 40 cents per year if your lucky
Pros
good working hours. supervisors bought us freezes in the summer
Cons
bad pay. unsafe working conditions. poorly managed

Decent Company
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Regina SKJune 15, 2014
After 2 and a half years did not receive a single pay raise. Also all reviews concentrated on only negative aspects in order to delay giving pay raises. The Brandt family is cheap and rides people for cheap and takes advantage of foreign workers to fill void positions. Some people do well but most will get fed up and quit. Would avoid but not a horrible company either
Cons
poor raises and job recognition

Awesome company to work for. 8-5 schedule, I enjoyed doing my practicum there and working for them for a few months after, due to lack of work and journeyman was unable to obtain a apprenticeship. 8-5 kinda days. awesome company!
