Maintenance in Kamloops BC
on 16 March 2020
Bad managementDefinitely the worst company I have ever worked for. Promises never fulfilled, Dog eat Dog management, unrealistic expectations and lots of in-house fighting. Kamloops First Transit is run by an overbearing highly unliked woman who is basically a puppet for the regional manager. When it comes right down to it she has no cahonas and will stab you in the back first chance she gets. The upper management responsible for this location are people you would never hang with in the real world. The Regional Maintenance Manager is a joke. Can't contact him unless you're in "his group". Way too concerned about his own life than what's best for the company. The shop is totally manipulated by one of the more senior mechanics. A person not to be trusted. Do not work for this screwed up company.

Ok job if you're singlePay is on the low end of the scale. On call so basically have no life because if you miss or turn down a couple calls you go to the bottom of the list. Then you graduate to spare board which is just another way full time without benefits. And even though it's a union position the Union caters to the management.

It will be your faultThese people are the worst humans on the face of the planet!! They will always blame you and it will never be their fault. You will do everything by the book, but because there is a complaint that makes them look bad, they will say you did it wrong and suspend you. Safety is something they talk about but never practice. Because fixing things costs them money. They make money by taking it off the backs of their workers. I reiterate. Horrible people!!!!

Do not come to work here if you do not want to sell your soul to the company storeThe management culture is the employee is always in the wrong. Very poor management. The company does not back its unionized employees. It is such a shame. There are so many great drivers that have been snubbed by management that are just trying to do their job in a thankless environment. Please reach out to a transit driver before you apply.
