Bad management, no work life balance.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 19 April 2017
They hire you for your trade qualifications but neglect to tell you the truth about the job. Once you start working, you do all the trades but not the one that you know and have experience in.
You work alone in a retail environment, they want you to do things you have no knowledge of or experience in. From unblocking toilets/urinals to fire safety and everything else under the sun. They want to turn your home into a parts depot for them. You work alone with little or no support, you must handle all of it, no matter how strenuous or dangerous it is. The work load is massive, the phone, the PDA never stop ringing, you work 24/7 on call. You have no personal life whatsoever.
Management is never on the same page, way too many meetings with no clear objective, it's the trial and error method. They grab at straws, try this or try that. If you have service experience, you realize that you are working for amateurs. They're main objective is to save money for their client. You pay the price for that..
Their hiring method is based on lies, smoke and mirrors is their religion.
