Great Project
Logistics / I.T Contractor (Current Employee) –  Mississauga28 April 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.

Avoid
mechanic (Former Employee) –  edmonton14 January 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 Barely any training, cramped shop, old/barely working equipment, old/outdated computer system that is mandatory to use.
Pros
none
Cons
poorly run

Total Chaos, bad management
mechanic (Former Employee) –  etobicoke30 December 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.
Pros
non

Have to have a good mental therapist to work here.
CSR Truck Maintenance (Current Employee) –  Concord ON10 June 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.
