Excellent place to work. Great team and management

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Kelowna Toyota treats their employees great. The management is always open to suggestions an put a high priority on employee happiness. There is always training opportunities and the culture is awesome. The sales department work together as a team and everyone there treats coworkers as friends instead of competition. Benefits are great and wages are on par.

Good Place to Work If You Want Your Money Making Ability To Be In Your Own Hands

Anyone who is driven and ready to grind away will love it here. Lots of fun, and games to keep morale high, lots of opportunity to make serious cash. People making over 150K per year for a job with no requirements other than talking to people and being able to drive.

Struggling to be average.

If you need a job, I guess. You will go no where within the company unless you are in “the club”. High pressure, high stress, high volume, lowest pay around. Zero staff rewards or comforts. Management is very secretive and lots of closed door meetings. One little man controls the whole show. This place should be a last resort.

Pros

A job

Cons

Salary, environment, constant under staffed, micro managed from the top down.

Walk on eggshells

Manage by intimidation, lots of threats and toxic culture. Zero appreciation of the hours you put in, pay cuts hidden in "new" pay plans. Always feel like you're on the verge of being fired

Pros

Free lunch sarurdays

Cons

Management

Typical cut throat car sales

If you have any decency in you then don't work here...that being said, don't shop there either. They have no respect for anyone but themselves. They live up to thier name of being car salesmen.

Pros

You dont have to do much work, free lunch on Saturdays

Cons

Long unrewarded hours, garbage pay, you have to watch your back

It’s a good and bad place to work

To be quite honest you will never be fairly paid like you would be at any other dealership. Toyota’s work environment was a great place to work the people become like family. The customers are horrendous and the pay is not adequate at all. I had the mostAmazing manager. However usually most decisions come from the “higher ups” and they are not always the most pleasant or friendly human beings.

Do not work at maclin ford

Well let’s talk about Maclin Ford. During my employment there the ownership changed to Canada One Auto Group. Everything was fine for the first few weeks and then suddenly people started getting fired left and right. Anyone who was good at their job? Gone. People who were honest to customers? Gone. People who made shady business deals? That’s who they brought in. If you have a disagreement with any of the management level, you can consider yourself fired. Either shut up and do what you’re told even though it’s morally wrong, or get fired. Do you really want to work in a place like that?

Pros

You get free lunch on Saturday as long as Sales doesn’t eat it all first.

Cons

Literally everything.

SP Toyota is awful

Parts manager was a space case. Service manager was great. Fixed ops manager hated anyone in their 20's. Called everyone a millenial. Girls here were clicky and uninviting and unfriendly. They had a snap show working the front parts counter who was racist and misogynistic. It was the worst place I have ever worked in the industry. Benefits are awful.

Pros

Discounts on vehicle purchases

Cons

salary, benefits, people

What happened to this place?

Lakewood used to be an amazing place to work with low turn over and great staff. Then the new GM bought into the place and changed everything for the worse. No longer do they put clients first, let alone their staff. The pay plan changed every month, of course for the worse. The new GM has no idea how to make the staff happy, he is almost like a tyrant. He is always spying on you and eavesdropping on your conversations. There are over two dozen dealerships in Edmonton, DO NOT work at this one.

Taking advantage of staff during Covid-19

They have cut pay across the group, no regard for dedicated staff, risking illness to serve customers. Its all about profit, very greedy. Peoples costs dont go down, if deemed an essential service it reeks of exploitation during trying times.

Awful

Started here in 2017, it was great for the first year. Then management switched, and it became the most stressful, unorganized, poorly managed, and greedy workplace I've ever experienced. I would not recommend anybody work here unless they feel like losing their mind every single day.

fun place to work at, fast paced, friendly enviroment

a typical day at work is doing oil changes, cleaning floors, helping out others, and taking out garbage, most enjoyable part of the job is all of it..

Canada One

Depending on the location you may work it can be an average to good place to work, there's been some recent head office changes that were likely needed, hard to tell if they will help or not.
