Supply Chain (Former Employee) – AB – 1 December 2017
But you is just a number, incompetent management, piles of problems and mess all over the business processes. But if you trying to speak about, or offer better solutions, you will hurt someone feelings and possibly - interests. They fire people in a blink of the eye - you called to the office and literally a minute later - escorted out of the building. Efforts, results are not appreciated.
Complicated, poor communications, customer support convelusion
Heavy Equipment Technician (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 10 December 2017
Technological nightmare Dealership internal complications constantly Spends millions on streamlining simple job processes to save dollars Upper management compromises customer relationships by relying on "brand" rather than high acceptance and co-operation of customers Upper management only concentrate on bottom line results English is a second language for most managers Training and advancement is "carrot dangle" tack tics to create staffing solutions and follow up or advancement does not exist Union hourly technical staff are treated with "slave" like dictation Technicians are part of a "revolving door" atmosphere
Some tooling for technicians is supplied
Lack of proper training relevance creates nightmares
Annoymous (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 21 November 2017
What a blindsided company! You go in doing your job and next thing you know you are being walked out the door. Clicky so if you dont brown nose your way in... you get laid off. The management goes up and you get out. Things were so called good....until the doom day. I was there for 4.5 years and saw many people laid off. Oh and lets not forget the christmas party at the shaw. With 18 to 25 year olds...drunk out of their stinkin tree!!!
Hard work but had a few fun events
Bad management. Reward the ones that work...not your buddy buddy
Journeyman/lead hand (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 24 October 2017
Great place to work good people poor management and poor job security while technicians on floor and most middle management are good the higher up or executive team seems to make poor decisions based more on stock price than taking care of employees
Territory Finance Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 October 2017
Working at finning was a fantastic experience, the people in the branches were exceptional to work with and the culture made sure respect for all divisions was high! There was a collaboration to get the job done and do the right thing. I believe the management worked hard to find a balance to work hard during the busy season and rewarded for the level of work.
Wearhouse/ parts (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 13 September 2017
Finning Canada was a great place to work when it was Kramer LTD. At Kramer you were family and treated well, when it switched to Finning you were no longer family just simply became a number and the new management that came with finning crossed boundaries and personal space.
Caterpillar Software Specialist (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 24 August 2017
If you like being micro managed then go work for Finning. You can't go to the bathroom without being watched. Other then that salary and benefits are very good. Management could use some work, they are oblivious to what is actually going on.
Poor management. Poor facility. No leadership. Zero future.
Heavy Duty Mechanic (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 30 July 2017
For a company that is constantly referring to their employees as "family" but will lay them off at the drop of a hat is disgusting. They spent 260 million on the dealership in SK but have since laid off thousands of people across Canada and the world. The facility in Saskatoon is poor to say the least. It seems There are more foreman, leadhands and managers in this building than workers yet there is zero leadership, mentorship or room for development. Very clicky at this branch, promotions and new positions don't get advertised on the board or go through the correct way. More money is spent on advertising at local sports events and shouting how great they are rather than investing it on a dated, archaic shop which is the worst dealership facility in the city.
Global IT Infrastructure and Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 21 July 2017
Finning is an exceptional company to work at. They always supported my professional growth and have given me opportunities to succeed. Eternally grateful and proud to have been a Finning employee for so many years, both in SouthAmerica and in Canada.
