Run In The Oposite Direction
Electrical Service Technician (Current Employee) – Ontario – 30 May 2017
I left another wind company to come work for ENERCON and was excited to do so. Anyone in the industry knows ENERCON has the best tech, and for the most part, they live up to that. Unfortunately, everything else about the company is a massive disappointment. The pay is the lowest in the industry by a huge margin (service techs start at $19 an hour), benefits are mediocre at best (2 weeks vacation, 80% coverage) and the company acts as if you're lucky to be getting that. Management is tone deaf to the market and the needs of its workers. They would rather loose a long term, experienced, and knowledgeable employee than try to accomadate them to keep them around. Health and safety is one of the company's lowest priorities, which is just flat out unacceptable in today's day and age. If the company was willing to listen and try to value its employees, it could be a great place to work. Unfortunately, with a top down management structure that keeps power in Germany and all Canadian management paralyzed and fearful, it just won't happen. Listen to my warning and run as fast as you can the other way.
Four day work week, (mostly) great technology
Lowest pay around, poor/unresponsive management
