Good work place with excellent upper management
Heavy Duty Mechanic (Former Employee) – Fort St John, BC – 15 February 2016
Work 8-10 hours on repairing, servicing, inspecting and diagnosing equipment.
I learned to work more independently and work around another crew (body men) doing another type of work (we shared eight bays)
I learned more about forestry equipment and new types (tigercat, link-belt).
Management: upper management was excellent and very helpfull. my first shop foreman was difficult, didn't communicate well, and was inconsistent, however he was a good mechanic, he left to pursue a different direction, and the new shop foreman gave excellent leadership. The business itself was very well run and employed a large staff.
my coworkers were pleasant, especially once the first shop foreman left, everyone got along well, as there was friction between him and others.
good management, good pay, good benefits, fair work
Location: family was far away, and did not wish to relocate to Fort st John, so had to leave job
