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.

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.

I feel they are profoundly unprofessional, vulgar, rude, deceitful and most management have very few values or ethical standards.

Limited challenge with no room for advancement
General Manager (Current Employee) –  Barrie, ON26 April 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.

Environnement de travail très agréable
Superviseur des opérations (Former Employee) –  Boucherville, QC11 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.
Pros
Environnement de travail agréable
Cons
Compagnie Américaine
