I enjoyed working with johnston equipment. It is a corporate environment so keep this in mind when applying. There are opportunities to train within different roles depending on your location and willingness to adapt.
Pros
Salary, incentives, group benefits

The job is very repetitive. As the SM tech you will need to have thick skin, as Loblaw mgnt will constantly change how the SM procedure is handled. In the end I was told that everyone will be doing SM and repairs which wasn't true. There are LOTS of politics that go on behind the scenes and though my co-worker were good guys, there was too much complaining about the work for my liking. Everyone is afforded a company vehicle except the SM tech. There is a expectation that you should work OT, though never said.
Cons
Poor management w/ Loblaws

I did start working at Johnston Equipment on the first day of the Covid19 business closure.
I am really impressed about the way they handle the situation. they provided me with all the tools I need to start my training to be really efficient at it.

The company is really looking for a good family/business relationship.

Everyone that wants to join Johnston Equipment will not be disappointing.

Johnston Equipment has been just Awesome!!!!!!!!!

Personally I believe that this was a great opportunity for me to learn new skills and place where I know I’ll have excellent options for future personal and professional development.
Company and management that takes care of their employees, colleagues that are really friendly and helpful in any situation.

Wish I had change to start working for GNJ when I arrived to Canada.
Pros
Help at any time regarding any issue.
Cons
Haven’t found it yet.

I recently made the decision to join this company after doing my due diligence as I wanted to associate myself with a great company that is established, committed to process, and a Leader in industry. I am happy to report that I have found exactly what I was looking for at GN Johnston Equipment. The management is extremely supportive and very much partnered for my success. The onboarding plan is the best I have ever encountered in my working career. I was introduced to my office buddy for navigating the company and she answered all of my questions with ease. A typical day for me in the office is to begin at 8am and work until 5pm (with an hour for lunch and coffee breaks). The only negatives I can say is that the office environment is suits and business formal (Friday is business casual), and the requirement for working at the office is a mandate. I wish that the company would be more flexible for us knowledge-based positions and allow business casual clothing in today's workplace of remote employees. For most employees in the Mississauga office it would seem there is a considerable drive at both ends of the day to be in the office for set hours, which hurts the home/work life balance. I have learned that this company has a majority of employees who have worked here for many years. This shouldn't be thought of as a complacent company as it is very much a Leader in professional development and there are many success stories from the employees. I will say that everyone is very respectful to one another and this culture is noticeably embraced by the whole team. The most enjoyable - more...
Pros
Employees, process, compensation, and Management

I'll have to get back to you on this one....

Not a great work environment. No feedback from managers. CEO doesnt trust anyone. If you are not in Toronto, Montreal or maybe Vancouver, you really do not exist for this company.

Watch out, they are notorious for following through on their non-compete & non-sollicit agreements. Numerous account managers have been threatened to be brought to court. Some of the bonuses and commissions are attainable only if stars are aligned. Layoffs are plenty in a down economy, as customers tend to put off their material handling purchases during a recession. Constant management reshuffling.

While not being with the organization a great period of time it has become clear that Johnston Equipment take our position and dominance in the marketplace very seriously.

With many specific products and services being offered, JE does a spectacular job of integrating these services and providing the best possible solutions to our customers. In the realm of material handling there is little to nothing that can't be achieved by partnering with Johnston Equipment.


Looking forward to future successes with the team! Look out competition!

Johnston Equipment is a great place to work but the commute from Milton is just too difficult. Would like something closer to home in Milton Ontario.

There is a lot to learn at Johnston, there are many steps in processing orders, credit, leases, etc...... but after training i did very well.
