Penske is decent place to be employed at in the logistics/transportation industry

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.

Full time is great, Not so much as part time/on call
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Belleville, ONNovember 12, 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

CSR Truck Maintenance (Current Employee) –  Concord ONJune 10, 2014
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"
Pros
good benefits, some good enviroment depending on the location.
Cons
if you don't wach your step you will get cond.

Great Compensation
Lead Rental Representitive (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NSNovember 12, 2012
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.
Pros
compensation
Cons

Avoid
mechanic (Former Employee) –  edmontonJanuary 14, 2015
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.
Cons
poorly run

Total Chaos, bad management
mechanic (Former Employee) –  etobicokeDecember 30, 2014
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.

Great Project
Logistics / I.T Contractor (Current Employee) –  MississaugaApril 28, 2015
The implementation project has been a very challenging and rewarding experience. Unprecedented exposure to real life situations and the most valuable lesson has been working in a 100% unionized environment.

Limited challenge with no room for advancement
General Manager (Current Employee) –  Barrie, ONApril 26, 2012
A typical day is very routine with little change from day to day and limited challenges, there is little to learn once you have mastered the system. My direct manager is a great person to work with, and does not micro manage, the co-workers pull together to make things happen and keep the customers happy. The hardest part of the job is dealing stress out people who are angry because of their moving experience has caused them grief. The best part of my job is seeing the same people leave with a smile on their face because they just had the best experience of their whole move.
