Avoid
mechanic (Former Employee), edmontonJanuary 14, 2015
Cons: poorly run
Management can't keep two trucks straight. The lack of communication from one level to another (let alone one shift to another) is laughable. Expect to have your job threatened on a weekly basis as "motivation."

Wages are ok for lube techs but it's like pulling teeth to earn proper rate as an apprentice.

In the interview they will promise the moon, in reality they deliver sand. Barely any training, cramped shop, old/barely working equipment, old/outdated computer system that is mandatory to use.

Total Chaos, bad management
mechanic (Former Employee), etobicokeDecember 30, 2014
Pros: non
Shop constantly in disarray, no one quite knows whats going on, very secreitive, more experienced techs wanted little to do with helping or training younger ones for fear of getting in trouble their labour times would be padded, culture of fear and distrust, no parts or supplies, equipment always broken and malfunctioning, a most disappointing workplace and atmosphere.

CSR Truck Maintenance (Current Employee), Concord ONJune 10, 2014
Pros: good benefits, some good enviroment depending on the location.
Cons: if you don't wach your step you will get cond.
Very bad run at Penske ( CONCORD, ON )

I had to fight for my hours for pay. Watch your pay stubs. Hours missing. Treated like a sub contractor.

Most of the time all information regarding the job was not given at the beginning. Did not know what was expected of the employee. Supervisors constant criticism. Mind changers, Rude & Greedy Scary environment. Supervisor and Manager untrustworthy.

They don't supply equipment when using chemicals. Shop is poor managed. Disregard for safety of others just self.

Penske CONCORD ON is in one Word "Garbage"

Great Compensation
Lead Rental Representitive (Current Employee), Halifax, NSNovember 12, 2012
Pros: compensation
Cons: everything
This job is extremely stressful and none management are taken for granted and unappreciated. Other then the compensation I have nothing positive to say about this company. I feel they are profoundly unprofessional, vulgar, rude, deceitful and most management have very few values or ethical standards.
