Great place to work, lots of room for advancement for those who worked and played hard.
Fleet Manager / Maintenance Centre Manager (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS22 August 2012
As fleet manager/maintenance manager, I really never planned a day. In most cases my plan was out the window by 8:10am as you went were demands were the greatest.
Loved the job, loved the industry as a whole considering I put 27 years of my life into the industry.
Great perks, the company car, fuel, laptop computer and the freedom to purchase the fleet I wanted.
Planning required great skill as you had to know the industry, the hot models, the proper equipment levels as the best part of the job was the fact that the commision was endless and that all came from experience and buying knowledge
Pros
great company to work for
Cons
really none, if you love your job, you really never mind the hours requied to get there to be successful.

does anyone know whats going on?
Driver (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB16 November 2017
At the time the management from the top down treated the staff at a couple of the locations I worked at like we were expendable. No opportunity to actually own the job.

At the branch location, there were a lot of kids fresh out of university working for the first time at management level. The company's reputation suffered because of this culture. Customers frustrated because product that they ordered wasn't available or ready when needed.

Every branch had a click(ish) feel to it. There was no team approach or the ability to make newcomers (and a lot of new folks came and left) feel like their contributions are appreciated.

The last shift that I was called to do and turned down was to a location that was an hour across the city (each way) for a three hour shift. I would of netted $10.00 after fuel expenses. Not worth it
Pros
interaction with customers
Cons
lack of leadership from management and no ownership of the job
