Heavy Equipment Mechanic (Former Employee), Campbell River, BC – March 29, 2015
Cons: Managements lack of action to deal with problems at Branch.
On daily basis we were given jobs for the day. Leaned lots on electronic engine controls and troubleshooting. Management had very high expectations but lacked support for mechanics ie- parts supply and – more... proper tooling to do work correctly. The hardest part of the job was trying to repair machinery with nothing, we were promised training and it never happened. Best part of the job was some of the people at the dealership. – less
Heavy Duty Mechanic (Former Employee), Nanaimo, BC – April 21, 2014
Pros: union, pension
Cons: instability with managment
I worked here for 11 months. shift work including evenings. people seemed be nervous about losing their job. despite being a unionized workplace, i was let go voluntarily after grievence proceedings, i – more... had no warnings of job performance and felt that my union and employer had a premeditated decision to get rid of me despite not going through the collective agreement motions. the majority of my fellow technicians were great people. however, the integrity of others made it difficult to be happy day in and day out. – less
