Sandblaster (Former Employee) –  Nisku, AB29 November 2013
The people I worked with were great, but the management not so much. Also every year you only get 20 cent raise with a cap of around $21 per hour. No apprenticeships were offered.

Nothing runs like a Deere.
Welder (Former Employee) –  Welland, ON14 June 2012
When I took this job on, I didn't realise I was taking work from others who were about to lose their jobs. From the beginning of this job my supervisor did nothing but lie to me. The company prided them selves on being safe, however you were only allowed to use P.P.E. given by the company, regardless of whether it fit properly or not. The Security department reminded me of something you would see in a film about the Gestapo, yet when my vehicle had it's wind-shield smashed in the parking lot, I wasn't even able to get a copy of the security camera's tape.
Pros
i know to never buy any john deere products.
Cons
just about 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
