Painful! Management is lacking knowledge.
Welder (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK2 December 2018
Management puts all the burden onto the workers, always adding more and more to the job. Death by a thousand cuts. Nice new shops, tools, and equipment but no money for the workers. Pay scale is all over the place, and workers are pitted against each other. I swear they want you to hate your job. Your good idea is no good until 2 weeks later when it's re-branded as their idea. Worst morale of any place I've worked. Immigrants are paid less than they are worth, and treated like slaves. One was off on disability and they cut off his benefits. You are just a number. It's all about the bottom line.
Pros
I know where not to work now
Cons
Management, benefits, wage scale, conniving managers.

Enjoyed the Social Committee
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK9 October 2018
Some people didn't seem very happy to be there most days. I worked out of one out of many offices, maybe others had a more upbeat culture and mentality, I am unsure.

Warranty Administrator (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK17 August 2018
Terrible management. Worked in warranty and would never again in my life go back to such an awful company. Don’t waste your time there. You are just a number. The mind games are endless and the stress doesn’t go away.

Garbage employer
Welder (Former Employee) –  Saskatchewan18 July 2018
If your a skilled white welder you wont get hired. They recruit unskilled immigrints that dont know the labour laws. This company is very cheap and run poorly but they charge top dollar for garbage equipment.

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

Read before applying***^
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
