Terrible Work Culture
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Olds, AB12 December 2019
Managers talked big about a “team culture” but but didn’t practice what they preached and picked favourites. At monthly town hall meetings they would ask for input from staff and then would belittle anyone who made a suggestion.

Good luck
Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Olds, AB22 July 2019
I quit this place in olds cause of the hacks that worked there but don’t worry they are the top producers and are some how praised for doing terrible work. And your bonus you get to play a stupid game to see whether or not you get any money my advice don’t waste your time. And I hope you like doing PDI’s cause most days the main shop runs out of work by noon so better hope they have some. The hacks also like to try and throw other ppl under the bus to take the notice away from them typical hack move. Good news as long as you can feed a story to the service manager she doesn’t have any mechanical knowledge but her husband is the shop foreman so it’s kinda funny to watch them fight. Oh and good luck have organization between parts and service advice just don’t do it
Pros
Some good ppl
Cons
Absolute joke

Take your chances if you want
Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Olds, AB20 July 2019
Well what can I say little good lot bad up to you whether you want to roll the dice with chance to work here. Be a hack service manager she likes them cause they make hours despite not putting stuff back together right and modifying parts to make them fit or so they can remove stuff they dropped inside of transmissions and well basically just garbage work that you’ll have to work on cause well they gotta make hours and it’s more then likely going to be a disaster trying to do your job good cause well they don’t like that they would rather you cross thread and super glue and trust me this place use so much super glue they have a chemical on site all the time to remove it but hey good luck. Oh and I quit to go enjoy not working on other ppls garbage good luck. Oh and I forgot to mention the stupid little games you get to play for your production bonus it’s not given you get to play a stupid game where you might not win anything so don’t buy the —--they shovel and stay away
Pros
Good people
Cons
poor management like the worst I’ve seen and I’ve worked for three Ford outfits

Rewarding job with setbacks
Service Advisor (Current Employee) –  Airdrie, AB28 May 2019
Fulfilling for a days work however serious shark tank atmosphere. Everyone has their own agenda and tries to enforce it on a daily basis. Difficult to get ahead.

Great place for a customer
Sales (Former Employee) –  Airdrie, AB9 April 2019
Management is unqualified. Staffed to sell 200+ a month but no where near that. BIG disconnect between front and back. Salespeople coach their customers. Great place to work if you have other income.

Great place to buy a vehicle. Give away everything and hold nothing.
Pros
Cheap place to buy vehicle
Cons
Cheap place to make money

Pros

Overbearing management, high expectations for employees

Awful management and always changing pay plan
Finance Manager (Former Employee) –  Airdrie location30 March 2018
I worked for Cam Clark ford in finance for 5 years. During that time they changed the pay plan every year. The last pay plan decreased my income by 50%!!! Over the last three years the finance department here has gone through 19 finance managers. Finance is treated very poorly by management and sales. They are not included in any decisions, continuously having income taken away and asked to work more hours and weekend.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Management, hours, pay plan

There is lots of room for advancement for the right candidate
Quick Lane Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Airdrie, AB7 March 2018
Some days were extremely busy and others were slower. The employees work well together to get the customers vehicle serviced as quickly as possible and keep the customer informed of anything going on with their vehicle. It's a very customer service based company, you meet new interesting ppl every day. Regular customers are always happy to see you. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the work load at times and keeping true to the estimated finish times for customers. But like anything in mechanics, sometimes things take longer to complete than originally planed. The ppl you get to work with are all so different but so much fun to work with, everyone tries to keep the mood light and enjoyable.
Pros
Great team to work with
Cons
Stressful, fast paced days. Grumpy customers sometimes that come in mad because their car isn't working right.

Great Place to work but sometime it can get a bit stressful. Takes awhile to get used to the work load but once you get a hang of it you pretty much set!

awesome manager, wages could be more competitive
Accounts Payable Clerk (Current Employee) –  Airdrie, AB28 May 2017
I love the people I work with/for. The company is large enough, though, that everybody's job is very specialized which becomes very repetitive and boring. Unfulfilling. This is what happens with all large companies. If you're ok with doing the exact same thing day in and day out, no biggie. I need more challenge.
Pros
awesome people to work with/for
Cons
unfulfilling, boredom.
