High Paced and Challenging, but a Safe Work Environment.
Supervisor - Warehouse (Current Employee) –  Grimsby, ON16 August 2016
The John Deere Parts Division is very high paced environment, challenged with stringent departure times and specific metrics that must be maintained on a daily basis.

As a Supervisor of the Parts Division you juggle many balls during your work day and its pinnacle that you're in alignment with your Co-Workers for overall Team success throughout all 3 shifts of the operation.

The Senior Management has high expectations from their Supervisors and you're always called upon to do more.

My co-workers and staff are excellent to work with.

There is really no hard part about my position. From being a Supervisor for 21 years you always have to be prepared for challenges and changes in your work environment.

I really enjoy working with people and the challenges it brings to your plate daily. I'm inspired when you're successful and you meet goals that you achieve with your staff.
Pros
Clean work environment
Cons
Long hours - 24-7 availability.

Support Tech Lead Hand (Current Employee) –  Nisku, AB27 February 2016
A typical day involves a lot of problem solving of minor issues and a lot of workplace organization for about 30 employees. I have learned that working in a global company is very different in the aspect of creating change. It takes a long time and requires lots of follow up. The management team here is top notch with a lot of experience. My direct supervisor is one of the best I have ever worked for. The hardest part of my job is dealing with product that comes into the system which is incorrectly identified and we have to research it to correctly identify so it goes through the process correctly.
Pros
Direct supervisor, commute to work (7 minutes)
Cons
limits on hours worked so extra work for overtime is limited.

Mechanical Technician (Former Employee) –  Provost, AB14 October 2015
Was a good experience in my life. Positive people, good work experience and good seasonal hours. Free lunches were provided once in a while. The down side to this job is there is times with no work and little pay.
Pros
Free lunches and friendly staff.
Cons
On call and busy all the time. Heavy dust and rotting product contaminating everything.

Summer Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB23 May 2012
Everyday was different, it was a continuous process of learning new things about John Deere products and services. Management was great by offering us the flexibility and autonomy of doing what was best for the company. The co-workers made coming to work very enjoyable with everyone being in a good mood and happy to be working for John Deere. The hardest part was learning because of the lack of training that was provided at John Deere, however the most enjoyable aspect of my work was the independence and confidence that they had in me to accomplish certain tasks with very minimal supervision.
Pros
company truck, cell phone and gas card
Cons
very long hours
