What is growth

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great place to work but growing within the company is basically a fever dream. With any open jobs that you think might suit you, no matter how much you apply, they already have somebody in mind even before the job is listed.

Used to be fun and a positive place to work

Worked at Finning for almost 25 years but lost respect for how employees were treated over the years. Became a number not a name and micro managing and removing the skill of trades people . Had a great run but became a toxic environment . Thought I’d retire there but chose work life balance over cash and seniority .

Welders stay away.

Work was good. Money was good. But if your a welder be prepared to be laid off at any time. Company is not a welding company does not understand welding at all. Welding is not a necessity with Finning it a hindrance in there eyes.

D50 warehouse is a mess

Never in my life has working for a company been so difficult you hear it everyday. You call out sick and use your sick time? Unexcused absences that they’ll put you on their attendance program even if you had doctors notes for the time off.Accidents happen everyday and most supervisors will just shrug it off and let you go back to exactly what you’re doing. No time outs for those who cause accidents on machines because then productivity takes a hit. Budget cuts make it so only a portion of the racking in the building has mesh but they rant and rave about how they’re so safety oriented and they can’t even invest in making sure stuff isn’t going to fall from the sky by accident.Contractors are left to do whatever they please and leave messes that the actual workers have to clean up after.Supervisors spend a lot of time at their computers and don’t actually supervise or properly staff busy areas.If you work at d50 you’re the lowest paid warehouse worker in the finning network despite being the largest and busiest warehouse. This isn’t even mentioning the “temps” who have no union pay increase schedule. If you live alone expect to work a lot of overtime to cover bills.No accountability between shifts each shift does their work in a different way causing resentment between workers.Proper equipment is few and far between and good luck having it in good shape.So many people work so hard and are treated sub human which cause a myriad of mental health issues in the warehouse to the point oh&s was called on them.


Benefits but barely


So many

Could be better

Culture and management could be better. Most people only care about climbing the ladder, not doing the right thing. Many great people left. No recognition, employees are definitely not their priority.

Decent company to work fir

Have worked for Finning in the past. Huge corporation with plenty of opportunities. If you’re tired or bored with your current position within company no need to quit. Plenty of other locations or positions within company. Relocate to other branches or careers. Loads of online training available. Also product training. Great benefits good wages. Plenty of great people work at Finning


Training and benefits. Good wages. Plenty of advancement opportunities

Wrong management in place.

The president of the company should stay. The rest of the executive team should be let go, bringing in the opportunity to change the culture. Service quotes are awful because they're based on history of poor quoting, customer facing people have to carry the weight of the entire company that's filled full of bad decision makers.


All management looking for the next step up the ladder, So they don't really care, about the people under them.

Fun workplace

Good team environment, too many meetings and too many managers. Lots of road blocks within the company , interdepartmental battles on a daily basis.

Good place in general. Lots of accountability issues

Good place overall. Managers care about their group. The pay is consistently becoming less and less attractive as they dont want to compensate for ones true worth or value.

It’s Alright, Alright, Alright.

The world is your oyster if you get past the infrequent layoffs.Get enough seniority and your set for life.Good pay, good coworkers, good training.Also it never hurts to have a few years of Finning on your resume.

Blind leading the blind

Executive team that is unable to understand the front line operation. Squandering money on a large customer who doesn’t pay. Wouldn’t invest my cash here with the enormous risk of bad business practices.

Nice people

Finning is a diverse company with great people. Despite being 90yrs old company, it is still growing.The company needs to invest on process effeiciency, because there are lot of things can be done quickly but takes a lot of time because of poor design of system and communication.

Uhhggg I'm Lagging

That is what this job turns my brain into. It do the brain soup. The management is so slow to react to the correct issues it feels like a ping spike from a lag switching teen in 2007. The supervisors may as well be Storm Troopers cause they can't hit a single positive trait between any of them. Best to stay squeaky clean so you will have no choice but to avoid this greaseball of a gong show.


Not bad benefits, Not bad pizza bribery either

Great pay, job security always in back of mind.

Safety based work culture really slows down pace. Great atmosphere. You are never rushed to get things done. All the people work with are super helpful when starting out. Management does their best to help with what ever you may need.

Well organized well run company with a good culture

Not what Finning used to be… The days of family and culture have been removed for political gain and profit margin

Many great people across the business, but Finning has changed in a big way. The days of family, culture and safety are now overshadowed by political gain within the ranks. Give 110% and show investment in the company as an employee and get shut down by political ploys from surrounding team members. It’s sad to say, but Finning is not what it used to be and not where it sat with many people as the pinnacle of a career. It now sits at the bottom. Hence the mass exodus taking place over the last year.
