Opportunity for training and resources to properly/efficiently execute tasks available however supervisors/managers lack necessary management skills & will suppress your progress. Too much politics at management level.
I found Finning to be very fast paced, at times, stressful. Pay, benefits and pension were very good. I found management lacked organization at times and it was up to shop staff to clean it up. The work variety was a definite plus to me. Technical training courses were encouraged and offered regularly to those who took initiative to sign up for them.
They take care of you to the best of their ability, though when things are decided at a higher level, there is no option. Excellent union as well. I enjoyed working here and planned to be a lifer.
Unforeseen circumstances are unavoidable and we all need to work together to get through.
Worked at Fort McKay location in Wood Buffalo Regional District for 2 years. Was hired for apprenticeship, but received very little "hands on" training. An improvement would be for better one-on-one mentor/apprentice interaction and training. (example: worked on less than 15 pieces of equipment in 2 years full-time, with most time spent maintaining shop and yard and janitorial duties.)
Paid well nobody worked to hard i have to write 150 characters for some reason. Managers were clueless as were supervisors and service advisors. If they didnt pay so well it would be a roller coaster of a revolving door
Learned how to collaborate within different IT teams.
There is no hard part, but the only thing to consider is they have big South american team, so if you know spanish it will come handy.
My bosses are very good and the company appreciated you to learn.
Management at the time was very encouraging and flexible. Great team culture and friendly customers. The mechanics were always willing to teach about concepts I had not known yet. Management was always making sure we did team meetings and branch activities together.
