Assistant Parts Manager (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 13 October 2018
Derrick Dodge used to have a family dynamic and familiar faces. Now with new ownership in the past 3 years they have lost all of that you are now a number not important, you can not manage a company with eastern views as we are a western company . Many accounts have left and moved on to other Dealerships. The company does not care about you as an employee or a customer. Take your business else where.
Manager Assistant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 October 2018
Up until new owners/management took over in June 2016, this place was spectacular to work for. (worked there off/on part time). Always welcomed back. Great management. Since June 2016, new owners have driven away long term staff (15-20-25-30-35 year people), by their inability to keep their word. I have witnessed first hand, (several times) new management firing someone for no reason, other than to be able to replace them at a lower hourly rate. New department managers, are quitting within days, because they've realized what a TOXIC place Derrick Dodge is.
It was like working in a shooting gallery. Never knew who was on the chopping block next.
No job performance reviews. Broken promises. Reneging on raises, promotions. Overtime hours not paid, missed regular hours on paycheques. NO RESPECT for their staff.
The new owners/management are from Ontario.
They have no concept of how the Alberta economy works or how we as Albertan's think. They have taken an Edmonton and an Alberta business with a great reputation and totally destroyed it because they refused to listen to the people that have been through several economic downturns in Alberta and how Derrick Dodge in the past, has weathered the storm and continued to be successful.
Derrick Dodge HAD a great reputation in the automotive industry, as a fair employer. An employer that treated everyone like family.
The new owners/management style is the complete opposite of the original owners. The new owners/management is only concerned about one thing....MONEY.
They do notmore... care how they make it, who they run over, who they destroy in the process. They do NOT CARE about their employees or the well being of their employees.
Middle management and regular staff turn over is like a revolving door.less
Sales & Sales Management (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 19 August 2018
New ownership forced out ALL of the great staff that worked here. Upper sales management has been changed 3 times in 3 months. Auto group out of Ontario that clearly has no clue about how to operate in the local market.
No one knows what is going on at all.
Save yourself the trouble of having to look for another job in 3 months, DO NOT WORK HERE, unless you enjoy long hours, high stress levels, and low pay.
Service Technician (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 7 August 2018
While working there under previous management, everything was going good. You would actually want to come to work. Then new management came in with new owners who have no idea how to keep employee. Moral is awful. Hard working employees & employees that have been there for over 10 years just let go. People quit left & right because of the chaotic atmosphere.
Paychecks were missing money, bad moral, new management
Lube technician (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 26 July 2018
The work was what you can expect I started as a porter then promoted to lube tech and became a service adviser and every time they told me exactly what i would be doing. The people there are what you have to watch out for nobody is looking out for you and the higher up staff is always looking for drama if you try to stay out of it they will try to start some with you. it makes it easy to get promoted because everyone quits but they quit for a reason it's avrage pay but your job security minimal if u don't try to stab others in the back
Good experience for people just getting into the automotive indistry
Service Technician (Former Employee) – 6211 104st Edmonton Alberta – 15 July 2018
Has relatively new owners that are completely lost and have no clue how to run a customer dependent store. Management continue to do nothing but cut pay to employees. The most enjoyable part of the job is going home.
low pay, always errors with paycheck unexplained, disorganized managment

Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 April 2018
Great place to work. Helpedme stay focused, deal with tough situations and helped me to learn how be prisistant. It's a career where you can't take no for an answer and keep looking for ways to make a sale yet not be pushy. It was defenatly a great expireance.
As a Temporary worker it was a friendly environment.
Temporary Worker (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 28 March 2018
I work at Derrick Dodge every summer and winter checking inventory. The employees are very friendly and helped out with things i wasn't clear about. The job I do for Derrick Dodge is only about three to six days a year. But I learned a lot about the company in the short time I am there. They taught me how to cross reference inventory numbers. The hardest part of the Job i do is being outside and on my feet for hours. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you can take it at your own pace. Again the employees are very friendly as well.
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 March 2018
Working ten days on and four off did get rough after a while, but I loved the work environment while I was there. The people were friendly, and management was helpful (for the most part) for both staff and customers. That aside, I got along really well with most everyone there, and still think it's the best dodge dealership in Edmonton, at the very least.
Free lunch on Saturdays, good spiff programs, good people
Used and Abused (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 14 November 2017
Do you enjoy being harassed by your superiors? Do you enjoy being singled out and being forced to do others peoples jobs? Do you thrive being forced to complete unsafe work? Do you love being told to do unreasonable work in unreasonable time frames! Then this is the place for you! Enjoy getting ripped off constantly, mistakes on your pay, and loads and loads of harassment! Just check out the reviews on any site of this place and you'll understand. Scummiest dealership in alberta, with a strong reputation as such.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton , AB – 22 February 2017
