HR Administrator (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 6 April 2017
Worked here too long already!. Petty jealousies and favoritism galore! Tons of talk about employee engagement and what a value everybody is - no effort made to do this!! Parkland is all about the money - no employee appreciation at all! Buy this company and that company but they never cared about the employees doing the work! I seen this from every department - Managers were just kissing the butt above and not caring about the minions doing the work. Extremely high year one turnover rate. If you like to work like a minion robot than this is the place for you.

Great Benefits and overall culture. Growing company so things change fast and furious. Each acquisition means a change to procedures and increased workload. They are adding employees as fast as required for this purpose.
Retail Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Prince George, BC – 24 February 2017
Grow Supply Operate under a progressive SLT and Leadership Group. You have to be very versatile and flexable to work Parkland There is never a normal or given gauge to relay on. Expect the unexpected on a month to month basis, Mergers aquisitions, small company buy outs training and updates quarterly were a must. A very lucritive fair employee share plan. Great people to work with in the field started out as a family business. I made long lasting relationships at Parkland. Hardest part was work life family balance, in the demands of managing two Provinces in the retail Fuel supply and formal agreement structure.
compensations vehicles, Emplyee share and stock optons.
This company only cares about the minion-minded. You must fit into their corporate puzzle..education and experience do not help. Upon leaving...and you will...they force you to sign an agreement stating you will not communicate with their employees or bad-mouth the company. That alone tells me that they are used to it.
Graphic Designer/Mktg (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 6 January 2017
Good salary, not sure about management, good company overall, all drinks coffees, pops, supplies where included while working there, as well sandwiches. I enjoyed board meetings. There is always something interesting happening. There was no pressure from management, very easy going environment. Professional.
Manager (Current Employee) – Grande prairie – 24 December 2016
Parkland is a good place for people wanting to advance. If you are able to relocate you will have lots of opportunity. If you get hired get to know the perks. Be used to change because the company is always looking for new ideas and technology. Seasonal workloads can be demanding so be prepared to have a busy and a slow season. Good benefits, salary and share match program.
Coworkers. Programs. Opportunities for advancement.
Changing culture. Seasonal demands. Need to enjoy change.
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 25 November 2016
Would not recommend working here. Management is disorganized. There is no structure or follow through. Expectations will not be met as they do not have the staff or equipment to properly do the job. Equipment is dated and constantly breaking down. Employees are not given the tools to do their jobs properly resulting in poor customer service.
Disorganization, No follow through, Poor Management
Driver (Former Employee) – Olds, AB – 24 July 2016
Relay bad communication and favoritism. Rarely got a thank you for long hrs away working. Great job for a single person with no life cause they can fallow a simple schedule and don't care about thier drivers. Best job I ever quit lol the manager was a jerk.
Poor comminications and no advancement opportunities
Full time employment (Current Employee) – Burlington, ON – 21 May 2016
Parkland has been good to us since taking over our business. The west teams are striving to make us feel like part of the Parkland family overall. We have been with them for a year and positives are visible. They are trying to promote a good balance between retail east and west and it looks like it is working to me. There are some nerve racking days but for the most part even since the sale I feel my job is pretty secure.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 2 April 2016
My every day is typical I enjoy my work very mutch.Customer daily gives me a new tip about my services due to a friendly relation with them. I learn how to satisfied customers with your good behaviour,smile and greetings as your dress. No co-worker (Feel very guilty when guys drive off). It is quite difficult only one person deal cash register,lottery,facing and clean the store. Engage customer inform about trade deals and increase the size of their basket is most enjoyable part of my job.
Worker (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 31 December 2015
Great team. Good yard guys and co workers. Even from other branches. But the management is horrible!!! To say the least. And zero organization. Every day to day active has to go threw management. Anything need to be ordered has to go to the manager. Nothing gets done. Its more of a joke then job. Good luck...you'll need it
tough place to be, especially if you are good at your job.
Manager (Former Employee) – AB – 27 November 2015
This place burns through good people like a fireplace burns through wood. Company uses people up in order to get through the most recent acquisition, then simply starts on the next. They talk the talk about employee engagement, but don't follow through with commitments.
