LUBE TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 November 2017
rewind the clock back ten years and its these guys. Very old equipment, employing questionable people, ran old school. to many chiefs not enough followers a huge hinderance for the company and not a friendly environment, favouritism is abundant in this company . Almost burned my desire to want to be a mechanic.
managment, planning, structure, and team ethic are not there. this was also quite some time ago
Good place to work lots of work mostly Cat equipment
Heavy Duty Equipment Mechanic (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 23 January 2017
Field tech and I have my own truck sub out my work. Good supervisors. Amicable environment. Lots of help if needed. Challenged to train the other techs they don't have experience in the new equipment I've been trained at Finning on lots of products
Groundsman /Heavy Equipment (Current Employee) – Walhachin, BC – 20 May 2016
Day starts at 6 am with a toolbox meeting, then out to the truck to preform safety checks, then begins a 12hour day of driving from loading area to waste dump. I have learned more about safety issues and how to risk manage as well as care and maintenance of various crushers and conveyors as well as safe operation of various heavy equipment. Management is very safety conscious and open to suggestions for making the job site a safer place. Co-workers are very diversified and all have their own stories. Hardest part of the job would be the long hours but with that comes the financial reward so some sacrifice has to be made. The diversification and opportunity to learn .
Rock Truck / Wiggler / Packer / Operator (Former Employee) – Calgary International Airport – 28 May 2013
I enjoyed working for Broda. The biggest difference for me was that the most part the supervisors in the field were knowledgable and fair to the employess. My co-workers were good to work with as well. These two things mean alot when working such long hours and consecutive days during the season.
