Stressful Place to Work
Daily dealing with uneducated business owners with huge egos is quite challenging. The staff are nice. Middle management is adequate but not impressive. Senior management however is another story.

Started off great, quickly went downhill
I was fired from my job during the covid 19 crisis, for a non existent performance issue. The company claims to care about their staff, but their actions would indicate otherwise. Stay away!

Do not recommend!
I'm only writing this to save other people from wasting their time. It's supposed to be an entry-level position that would open doors for you to move on. Unfortunately, the manager is an egotistical narcissist that does not want to see people advance. Total waste of time especially for the pay!

Great place to learn
Nothing bad to say about KAR. Like most software organizations going through a digital transformation, expect ups and downs on the work-life balance. And expect to constaintly learn

Think Twice!!!
Managers are the worst, If you are among the favorite you get overtime, if not, even you are a full time employee. Manager accept gifts and food from employees.

A Company that cares about its employees
The management was amazing and probably my favorite part of this company. Lots of opportunity for advancement and very family friendly. Participating in the auction was very fun and challenging at the same time.

great place to work
interesting business; great atmosphere on sale day.

there are lots of opportunities to transfer to other jobs and you can make a career out of working for ADESA.


pay could be stronger but benefits and people are good. company provides paid benefits to full time employees, including medical and RRSP matching.
Pros
lots of overtime potential in busy periods, paid benefits
Cons
weather conditions for outside positions

Resources are not managed well
Not respected the resources well enough. Never felt comfortable about the decision making process. Internal politics was one of the reason why I felt that way.

Great place, great people.
I have worked part time at Adesa for almost 4 years since retiring from the City of Calgary and can honestly say I have really enjoyed it. All the people are great from supervisors to co-workers and the work environment makes it enjoyable to come in to each day. The only reason I’m looking for another job is recently there has been a slow down and I find I’m not getting enough hours.

Production lines with cars and vehicles to get ready by time
Its a very good company to start work with as trainee and grab good working training and experience.
Staff is too supportive and energetic.

Its a production line type, where vehicles need to get ready by time, all staff are coordinating and well behaved with everyone.

Good experience, good start, payment and structure all good.

Not the best place to work!
The person who was suppose to train me for the job was setting me up for failure. I was let go after 3 days even though I did everything I was asked to do. I don't feel bad since it was a chance for me to find a way better job which I love.
Pros
Not sure
Cons
Poor work conditions

Relaxed atmosphere
the workplace was relaxed and allowed me to set my own hours, I really enjoy vehicles so it was interesting to see so many different kinds.

Management was approachable and seemed to care about their employees.
