interesting people, learned a lot
Labourer (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB27 February 2014
The day would start off with a safety meeting, then we would be assigned tasks for the day.
-Complete the tasks, help the mechanics and tool crib, and keep the shop clean and tidy.
-managers were ok, but often contradicted each-other
-it was frustrating when safety would make certain tasks more difficult by being ridiculous
-really enjoyed the camaraderie with the mechanics
Pros
great pay
Cons
long way away from my family

overall a good place to work, large companies seem to all work the samw
H.D.Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB14 December 2017
go out to customer, to diagnose machine order parts, give an estimate to customer..once parts have been received you return to customer site, and quite often you find many more things that are wrong with the machine, (which is not always visible until you pull machine apart) ..you discuss situation with customer...
very difficult to document every day scenario at Finning, due to the type of job.
Pros
there was always work available and you had the option to work ot or not
Cons
long hrs, as you never knew what you would be dealing with until you reached customer site.

Heavy Equipment Technician (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB10 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
Pros
Some tooling for technicians is supplied
Cons
Lack of proper training relevance creates nightmares
