Yard Administrator (Current Employee) – Woodstock, ON – 29 May 2017
Shift work Schedule tends to change, often pays more then minimum wage management changes often but provides some support if you need to work a day shift there is not a lot of room to move up in the company
Service (Current Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 19 April 2017
It is a job that isn't for everyone. It is fast-paced. The longer I have worked the more resentful I have become to the company. The sales staff sign contracts promising the world but the District staff works to make things as hard as possible to do things well.
Currently management preaches that Penske has a strong customer focus yet the same management has put a high priority to sell off trucks off the books over all their everyday customers so customer service is only getting worse. It is very clear that management is just a puppet for the larger management in the US and are only focused at doing anything to get a short term profit to justify their jobs. Stay away if you enjoy your mental health.
Truck and Coach Mechanic's apprentice (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 April 2017
Good company to start as a truck and coach apprentice. Friendly environment and medium work load. The wages are low though, been with company for more than 2 years and still pay me as 1st year apprentice
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 23 November 2016
Decent place to work nice and clean environment good addittude managers and HR very friendly and approachable benefits are great the company is on top of all types of paper work for anything needed for their employees
dull repetative work. horrible politics and management. no steady schedule
310T technician (Current Employee) – Belleville, ON – 28 September 2016
management is difficult to work with, higher up politics are a mess and scandal. work schedule is all over the place due to lack of help and unsteady work planning. overtime never offered and unpaid if worked unrequested. every man for himself environments. any new employee has no chance , leave your dignity at home. there is no help from HR when needed, you are on your own
Superviseur des opérations (Former Employee) – Boucherville, QC – 11 September 2016
Une journée de travail chez Penske était tout un défi chaque jour. Je devais fréquemment gérer les urgences et au besoin revoir la planification en plus de devoir être moins même responsable de la mécanique sur certains camions car aucun membre de mon personnel avait l'expertise pour des diagnostiques moteurs, etc. Je devais organiser et planifier le personnel en place et voir a répondre tel que précisé ci-haut aux urgences et aux besoins du personnel, tel que pièces a commander, bons de commandes a préparer, etc. Le seul point négatif est que cette entreprise est Américaine donc la culture et la gestion est bien différente.
Truck and Coach Technician (Former Employee) – Ontario – 11 August 2016
Where do I start? Managers and corporate personnel are not from the trade. They know nothing about the industry or what physically can be done in a shop. Demands are asinine and shop is planned on what what corporate wishes they can achieve with no room for error. They made up thier own estimated labour times for techs that are nowhere close to the labour times in the industry and most of the times are ridiculous. If you break a bolt on something you're pretty much written up. No appreciation is given for beating these times day in and day out , but if you go .1 over one job in no word of a lie yelled at. The entire mind set of the company is focused heavily on money. So bad in fact some of these managers would sell their kid to 3 time convicted pedophile to save 3 cents a year! It's disgusting. Everybody who works there developed health problems from the horrendous stress levels that never go away. Mine diminished as soon as I left there. Is like being three weeks behind everyday of the year, for years. You make a list of defects on a truck you just serviced , but none of it gets done because 14 more services have to get done that day and so unsafe trucks are released back onto the roads because there's no time to fix them.I could go on for ever. Worst place ever.
Heavy Duty Mechanic (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 March 2016
worst place to work at. extremely bad menagement. a lot of wannabe mechanic. and they dont do anything to improve always the same old story cause its menage like they own it instead of going the penske way. WORST PLACE TO WORK
Penske is decent place to be employed at in the logistics/transportation industry
Rental Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 14 January 2016
Penske Truck Leasing is a massive company with fairly good advancement opportunities should you show promise and have a passion for sales/corporate culture. Management is invested in ensuring the company does well therefore creating a culture of efficiency and desire to grow, improve and succeed.
technician (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 18 November 2015
Good company to work for. Have good benefit and structure. Good team spirit but always under pressure, rental place. Everybody his most of the time happy witch create a good work environment. Good place to learn if you are willing to work hard for.
Full time is great, Not so much as part time/on call
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Belleville, ON – 12 November 2015
Penske is a great place to work if you are full time, but part time employees get no pay raise or benefits. If it was up to my supervisors, I would work full time but corporate insist my position is only part time on call. They can not understand that the more I work, the more money they make because the mechanics are paid a lot more and have to do my job what I am send home
