Manager; Dealer Credit & Operations (Former Employee) – Aurora, ON – 22 February 2017
While I have had many positive experiences with the Volvo Group, the current environment at Volvo Financial Services in Canada is one of dis-function from a management perspective. While individual teams work well, and do communicate with each other when necessary, there is no Leadership from the current Managing Director, whom actually seems to encourage team management silos, and prefers a "passive-aggressive" management style. The most enjoyable part of being a member of the VFS team is the people/staff, and their willingness to give a little extra to deliver excellent service to both external & internal customers.

Great west equipment was a great company to work for. I thrive on challenges and learning. I was able to attend volvo training a few times a year to keep on the latest technology and machines. I was a field mechanic and very much enjoyed it. GWE treated their mechanics well and pay was good. I would enjoy another position similar to this.
FLEET SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 5 March 2017
Volvo has a quality product and has a good employee culture. As all companies within the automotive industry, it's business is cyclical. The Canadian division has minimal number staff that are responsible for many duties within their particular department. A quick pace environment that is constantly changing is one of the best and worst aspects.
people respect with each other, easy going environment

FLEET SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 21 April 2016
Volvo Trucks is a Global company that leads the trucking in safety and technology. The Canadian operation is small in numbers but big in heart and dedication to customers. Advancement opportunity within this region is small to none.
The employees are like minded and have a good sense of camaraderie. Recent management changes has added challenges to the spirit of the group, but overall they have maintained their cohesiveness.
Salary and benefits are excellent.
Overall, I highly recommend this company as an employer.
