Pros: good working hours. supervisors bought us freezes in the summer
Cons: bad pay. unsafe working conditions. poorly managed
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

Cons: poor raises and job recognition
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

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!
