Great junior staff, serious senior management issues
Western Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 January 2017
A highly-dedicated and skilled group of Transportation professionals, constantly battling an outdated and arbitrary senior management team.
Gardewine struggles to place progressive, forward-thinking managers in key positions, and the result is a very short-term view of the business and the employees. Reluctance to invest in quality people and ideas, a dislike of non-traditional business styles and a general willingness to sacrifice safety and employee QOL for the sake of short-term goals leads to higher turnover and inhibits the building of quality long-term customer relationships.
Profit sharing, genuinely nice people at all levels
Senior managers who like spreadsheets more than conversations with key staff.
