Shipper/Receiver/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 20 June 2018
The actualy work at John Deer was alright. No complaints about the people or the job. I wasn't a big fan of the fact that they staff their wharehouse through an employment agency "Addecco". This means that they have the ability lay someone off without notice at anytime. That seems like a slimey business practice to me.
Insuffufficient accountability for missed target dates
Designer Engineer (Contract) (Former Employee) – Aldergrove, BC – 6 June 2018
In general not a bad company to work at, not the worst and not the best. Projected target dates were always missed. Really a result of poor project planning which had to be way out. Yet no accountability. "Just move the date back".
Decent people, good benefits package, please office are
Support Technician (Former Employee) – Nisku, AB – 10 July 2018
good environment as well as good fellow employees, long hours for good pay. great benefits but poor time off allocation for employees, was a bit of a drive for anyone not in the immediate area but overall was an excellent company to work for
Software Engineer Co-Op (Former Employee) – Grimsby, ON – 25 February 2018
Wonderful people and a great company to work for. I consider myself lucky to have spent the eight months of Co-Op in this position. I would absolutely consider going back to John Deere and working with them full time should the opportunity arise.
Customer Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Ospringe, ON – 18 January 2018
This was a very interesting summer job for me. I was really happy with how welcoming everyone was. I really liked the culture and the energy from the people I was working with. I was given the opportunity to help out around the store as well as find ways to make small processes a little less grueling.
Bilingual Service Loan Officer (Current Employee) – Oakville, ON – 16 October 2017
A typical day would include about 40-50 calls from customers.
I've learned to multi-task very quickly. In order to full fill the customers on going requests through out the day, you have to be quick and efficient. A person in my department can process about 360-490 documents in one month.
Workplace culture depending what department you work in, some are more stress free than others. They have a lot of meeting and try to reach their sales goals for each quarter.
The hardest part of my job is being scored on calls. The most enjoyable is that we have one hour for lunch.
