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.
Support Tech Lead Hand (Current Employee) – Nisku, AB – 27 February 2016
A typical day involves a lot of problem solving of minor issues and a lot of workplace organization for about 30 employees. I have learned that working in a global company is very different in the aspect of creating change. It takes a long time and requires lots of follow up. The management team here is top notch with a lot of experience. My direct supervisor is one of the best I have ever worked for. The hardest part of my job is dealing with product that comes into the system which is incorrectly identified and we have to research it to correctly identify so it goes through the process correctly.
Direct supervisor, commute to work (7 minutes)
limits on hours worked so extra work for overtime is limited.
Mechanical Technician (Former Employee) – Provost, AB – 14 October 2015
Was a good experience in my life. Positive people, good work experience and good seasonal hours. Free lunches were provided once in a while. The down side to this job is there is times with no work and little pay.
Free lunches and friendly staff.
On call and busy all the time. Heavy dust and rotting product contaminating everything.
Very transparent real time employee, sections, shifts evaluation system.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Grimsby, ON – 30 August 2015
A typical day at work starts with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) peer to peer inspection, followed by supervisor to employee. After PPE inspections, all employees log in for a 15 minute update briefings which includes the previous day's summary performance, safety reports and feedbacks, the day's expected workload and an overall deployment and execution plan. This is followed by a 5 minutes stretching period before logging for various cost accounting activities.
I learned the optimal teamwork, and optimum resource utilization where all activities are neatly fishbone planned, time controlled and carefully dovetailed into the logistics and distribution schedules.
I highly rate the management to be the best I have worked under in my entire career. They are very supportive and have developed an inbuilt all inclusive continuous improvement structures with planned milestone commitments. Monthly feedback statics and performance highlights with revised targets are given on the last Thursday of the month without failure.
Co-workers have an amazing bond, willing to help and complimenting each other to improve the shift score chart.
The hardest part of the job is within the first few weeks of the job.
Very professional and satisfactory company to work with.
