Keep looking better options out there
Agent (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB16 July 2017
Working hours are the only thing I can say good about this company

As other reviewers have stated-- below average labour market pay.

No real penson plan to speak of

No raises

Local management has no clue about how to grow a business. How to keep customers coming back or what motivates employees.

Workplace culture is total snake pit, backstabbing while they smile in your face. If something goes wrong you are guilty until proven innocent with no chance to state the facts and defend yourself

Hardest part of job was trying to keep mouth closed when being managed by clueless people that don't understand how customers think.
Pros
Company gifts on Birthday, Christmas
Cons
Managerment personalities non professional

Lacks diversity in middle management
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK17 February 2016
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
employee gifts
Cons
micro-managed, company policies not clear, not fair compensation among employees

Not a bad place to hone some starting skills
welder (Former Employee) –  sk2 September 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 SK15 June 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
