Parts/Service Advisor (Current Employee) –  Prince George, BC9 April 2018
Up and coming branch in the Brandt Tractor company. Customer satisfaction is top priority. Service is constantly growing and improving to meet the existing, as well as the growing, customer base. Hard work is supported by management and employees are encouraged to go above and beyond to provide top notch service to all customers.

ok work place
Parts Person (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK3 April 2018
you can tell once they moved into the new building they were no longer a small company, you became a number to them not a person. They care only about the dollar sign.

Good Place to Work
Product Support- Call Centre (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK9 March 2018
Brandt was a good place to work back at that time, had many changes in upper management. Their vision was to move all service and parts personal under one roof. eg. Brandt Tractor Brandt Ag, Brandt Engineered Products . By doing this, it would have all product support personal under one roof saving them money , and reducing their staff. This is a good idea , but it did not give personal touch to their clients .
Pros
Very personal Owners Always there if you needed something
Cons
Dealing with some of the upper management

Technician (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB1 February 2018
I’ll start with the good things. They have a renovated shop and provide nice tools. There is also a 7on 7off rotation that is nice. The bad things. Journeyman wage is 40 an hour. Which is competitive with other companies. Here is the kicker. They haven’t given as much as a cost of living bump in 4 years. They force apprentices to sign contracts saying they won’t take a raise after they go for schooling... in fact the apprentices got together and went to the labor board in order to get raises... this didn’t help the journeyman. There is no room for advancement. Unless you suck up to the right people. Favouritism is terrible along with internal politics. The foreman don’t get along with each other and it makes for a hostile work environment. Do not work for this company!

Would be a great place if it had better management
Parts Person (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB22 November 2017
The hours are decent but with the way employees have been leaving and finding other jobs means schedules change frequently. Management is power hungry, and don't get along with each other. Compliments are nonexistent and criticism is plenty. This place does have some decent qualities though, such as, a nice lunch room, good hours, and random gifts (weak attempt at a employee retention program). The pay scale isn't fantastic but it's probably pretty average, most of your money is made in commission unless you work as a tech/mechanic. Promotions are rare but do happen on occasion, and yearly raises don't seem to happen yearly. The training you get is subpar as it's your coworkers training you, most of them fairly new, or too busy helping customers to train you. You are often left to learn things on your own, or struggle and look stupid in front of a very unforgiving customer base.
Pros
Lunch room, hours
Cons
Management, Training, Lack of respect for you

Keep looking better options out there
Agent (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB16 July 2017
Working hours are the only thing I can say good about this company

As other reviewers have stated-- below average labour market pay.

No real penson plan to speak of

No raises

Local management has no clue about how to grow a business. How to keep customers coming back or what motivates employees.

Workplace culture is total snake pit, backstabbing while they smile in your face. If something goes wrong you are guilty until proven innocent with no chance to state the facts and defend yourself

Hardest part of job was trying to keep mouth closed when being managed by clueless people that don't understand how customers think.
Pros
Company gifts on Birthday, Christmas
Cons
Managerment personalities non professional

Sinking Ship
Territory Manager (Current Employee) –  British Columbia19 January 2017
Management has run this outfit in the ground. Good products,some great people work here but everyone is geting ready to bail. Too many commission related positions result in dishonest billing and poor ethics amongst peers. Each branch has individual managers and its like a wild west shootout. Nobody is on the same payscale,cause each manager/division manager can fudge their numbers. Take money from this deal to make this other deal fly....that kind of hoakiness.Manegemant and pay scale are the big issues along with lack of training for newer guys.
Pros
Some Great People
Cons
Management, Pay, Benefits are horrible

Fun workplace
Office/Safety Administrator (Former Employee) –  Fort St. John, BC14 September 2016
A typical day at work was pretty simple and easy was never to stressful. I learned a lot in the sales department. I would do morning batch every morning following with a bank deposit, daily spreadsheets and data entry. My co workers were all great very friendly and understanding if something personal came up.

Really enjoyed selling for the company and my customer base, not ideal for me long term.
Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB13 September 2016
Great company overall, very much enjoyed most people I worked alongside from other reps to the team in finance and A/R. enjoyed the challenge of learning a new industry, selling construction equipment and attachments. Struggled a little with sales manager as he was very new to his position and had long term relationships with other reps so he seemed to manage his time poorly among all of the reps rather than the 2-3 he had worked with for past few years. Hardest part of my job was the long days and nights as I was expected to be in restaurants and lounges with customers every night I was on the road which made for very long days and nights. Most enjoyable part of the job was being allowed to spend so much time creating relationships with my customer base.
Pros
Unlimited expense account, quality product, excellent service team.
Cons
Very long days that were often spent in lounges drinking beer, tough work/ life balance.
