Depends.. do you hate yourself?
Heavy Equipment Technician (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB14 June 2017
If you enjoy getting treated like garbage, this is the job for you! As a heavy duty technician for Greatwest Kenworth, you will constantly be threatened with job security/loss. Have no CVIP ticket? Well, enjoy being threatened to be fired. Enjoy a nice wage? Well, enjoy your hiring wage as it will never increase after you are hired on. Benefits are okay, but can be expensive so check before you get locked in. Not a positive atmosphere, and not a team player environment. Enjoy playing the "blame game" when something goes wrong. Your great mechanic skills will not save you here. Foreman is fine, the service manager will make you wonder why you ended up here and how to escape. HR in head office is unprofessional, other employees have had zero success with complaints. Complaining leads to public shaming as there is no confidentiality in HR, they will let your boss know you complained so that you get treated even worse.
They do provide excellent training opportunities and travel to the states for training, there is a positive!
Pros
Training and international travel
Cons
Not a positive atmosphere or team environment.
