Floor Technician (Former Employee) –  On the floor26 May 2019
Often told 3 different things for one task. Items not paid for by upper management you will be made to look for pointlessly. Lack of substantial communication. They all crud talk each other but can't find time to be on same page or be upfront...The new manager they have is awesome though. Be great if people are allowed job duties and not just titles
Pros
Beer
Cons
Sissies

Awful experience, owners are just about the money
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB12 April 2019
Awfully ran by the dealer principles, the female that owns it is a bimbo in a sense, works very part time and just shops in the clothing department all day. You honestly can’t take this company seriously. Terrible pay and only receive benefits after a year. Don’t be fooled by the rating on here.

Got to love when spoiled brats are given a company owned by their father, hugely taken advantage of their opportunity and business performance would improve if they actually stepped back and maybe actually took better care of their employees.

Everyone is overworked and under paid, just so you can put a dollar in the owners pockets.
Pros
Great people to work with besides the owners
Cons
Terrible pay, office politics are a joke, owners are terrible

Could've been better
Sales associate (Current Employee) –  Davidson, SK28 March 2019
Very interesting workplace, get the opportunity to meet new groups of people and get to help with the special events which offer perks to employees.
Hours are not guaranteed no matter how long you've been there.
Management is incredibly hard to get ahold of and will very rarely communicate with you or respond to emails.
There is no way to advance in this work environment and no appreciation for any employees whatsoever.

Thunder Bay Harley Davidson isn't a bad place to work or a really great place to work. Expected to work everyday possible for minimum wage. Management was overbearing, not a fun place to work.

Exciting Environment
Detailer and Delivery (Former Employee) –  Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON21 August 2017
The location and employees were great to be associated with. Management and owners at Clare's Harley Davidson are horrible people to deal with. They treat employees as their private possessions.

I would not recommend this location to anyone!

poorly managed, you ARE expendable
staff (Former Employee) –  Prince George, BC1 May 2017
most days were fine, but if you could be blamed for something, you were. if there is an issue, they never speak with you about it, they just hold it against you
understaffed - made lunch breaks difficult to get through. Summer time, expect to be stuck at store for up to 2 hours after closing when busy, and not get a lunch break at all. Requesting time off is a pain, they don't like to give it you.
Pros
friendly staff, above min wage
Cons
understaffed, poorly managed

Shop technician (Former Employee) –  Davidson, SK6 December 2015
A typical day was a lot of cleaning, helping customers and making sometimes hard decisions. Management and sometimes never saw eye to eye but other then that we got along. the hardest part was trying to stay busy when a lot of us were working. The most enjoyable part was working with the mechanics and the motorcycles.
Pros
everyday was fun
Cons
interfered with my personal life
