Sad to be leaving
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Grande Prairie, AB11 December 2017
I have nothing but AMAZING things to say about the Grande Prairie Location. From my very first day the staff and management team have always been very helpful and approachable. The work atmosphere is second to none; our customers are all very easy and laid back. This is by far, the best company I have ever had the pleasure working for. If you enjoy working in a fast paced environment, I highly recommend working here. Sad to see my time end!

1 star is too much
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Ft. McMurray, AB17 November 2017
If you’re looking for a a great apprenticeship, a place where you’re respected and hard work is appreciated than I’d highly recommend you stay away from here. Stress is about the only thing you’ll take away.. Don’t think there was a day that I didn’t feel belittled or insulted by the service manager.. treated like dirt from Day one. Apprenticeship training is deplorable at best. Asked for assistance to complete an unfamiliar task and was told to “Google it”.. I’m pretty sure that isn’t how an apprenticeship works. One job I actually took some enjoyment in being let go..walking on eggshells every day is a horrible way to have to work. Always hiring. Guess there’s a reason why!
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Horrible leadership

Toxic
Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB20 March 2017
The environment is toxic. Encouraging back stabbing and spying was put into place by the new management as a tactic to keep everyone in fear. Favoritism is rampant, and being a loyal and honest employee means nothing. Long-time staff spends their days visiting with other long-time staff while you do both their job and yours.And if you complain, well then your gone, and a new victim takes your place.
Pros
monthly BBQ, concert tickets
Cons
New management

Grande Prairie location review!
Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Grande Prairie, AB20 September 2016
Myself being a employee about to move from the Grande Prairie branch where the job is posted would like to make clear that this is by far one of the best places I have ever worked. If you are looking for a family environment, amazing people to work with and a team environment I highly recommend that this is the place to be. There is GREAT management in place on all levels, that are approachable and fair. If it wasn’t for the fact of having to relocate I would still be happy to be a part of the Grande Prairie Stahl Peterbilt Family!!
Pros
Great team enviroment!

Worse than high school
Service (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB21 August 2016
As others have said the new management is where the problem lies. The owners are wonderful people however they are too complacent to the new service manager effectively running their business into the ground. What used to feel like a big family has become a den of backstabbing and eggshell walking as you never know who is listening or if you will lose your job regardless of how proficiently you do your job. They have a system set up to be able to deal with bullying and such however most of the negative atmosphere is enacted by management themselves so employees are left with no recourse. Business has gotten quite slow and over worked front line employees are the ones who are blamed and left responsible to boost the customer base without compensation.
Pay was good several years ago but with new management there have been no increases and benefits have slowly been getting cut.
Training is nearly non-existent and what is given is a joke and has no practical use, once again with no additional compensation.
Fellow staff members are fantastic and tend to be the reason people stay, but if you are unliked by a very specific group of people your job security is never going to be there as they will do whatever they can to get rid of you.
Management is never around when needed and no proper direction is ever given so staff has a general feeling of panic as they are afraid of doing the wrong thing.
All in all I would say the compensation received isn't worth the atmosphere of fear.
Pros
Bbq, fellow staff
Cons
Management, training, atmosphere

Manage by fear. Tell you what you want to hear but do the opposite as soon as your back is turned
Service (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB23 July 2016
If you like to live in fear and minplation then this is the place for you. Be very careful when working with this company they only care about one, thing themselves. New management there is there biggest down fall and "some" old management needs to be changed out.
Pros
Great intentions
Cons

Great pay, still isn't worth the stress
Apprentice Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB22 June 2016
The shop is well equipped and spacious, the staff are all easy to get along with with and the pay is fantastic. The biggest problem with this shop as others have said, is the management. Unprofessional and rude.Training is not readily available to those that which to pursue it, and apprenticeship training is incredibly poor.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Poor workplace atmosphere

Another Realistic Review
Current employee (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB7 January 2016
The reality is the new management is horrible. Daily use of fear tactics. Completely disorganized, totally unprofessional and plays employees against each other.

Ethical workplace responsibilities are not met while favoritism is key. Loss of customer base due to lack of unprofessional management is regular and employees are the first to blame. Most employees if not all miss the old management and unfortunately have had to put up with the new one quietly.

Other employees

Terrible place to work.
Service (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB9 November 2015
When I worked there a day didn't go by when someone wasn't being treated like dirt by the new service manager making the experience very disappointing, there is a reason they are constantly hiring people. The owners were kind and respectable.
Pros
The owners
Cons
New service manager

The Reality
CSR (Current Employee) –  Edmtonon, AB24 October 2015
Working for Stahl Peterbilt was a great until new management came in and started to belittle employees on a daily basis. Behind the scenes they're not respected but tolerated creating a negative work environment of backstabbing, favoritism, incompetence, no accountability, no leadership where any type of criticism is met with "How Dare You Question The Great Oz!"
Pros
Co-Workers
Cons
New Management
