Great learning experience available if you are willing to travel for work. Most of the work term is spent in the field working independently to test harvest equipment.

If you work at macdon and you're a permanent member of their workforce you will enjoy a very high pay wage for absolutely minimal work with the benefit of never having to be concerned about being fired. The permanent employees got it made at this job. Now for us-- Term employees, we got 14 an hour for 15 months with the PROMISE of the pay raise and permanent employment.Well 2 or 3 years ago I was a part of their mass lay off after the company was sold. Their new game is to NEVER have a new permanent employee, just keep cycling through term employees over and over like a revolving door.GREAT job if you have family here, if not-- you're thrown to the wolves.Take from this what you will. I believed in this company and it still let me down.
Pros
Can easily complete your daily task within 2 hours
Cons
Can not leave if task is done. They would rsther pay you to do nothing than leave

It was an amazing place to work, competent supervisors and management. I recommend working for them. I would still be working there if not for layoffs due to steel tariffs.

Great work environment, big talk about promotions to keep you working hard but it's an invisible carrot. I was the last of 140 new hires who got laid off. I was told that I was a keeper until the day they laid me off. Effective tactic to keep new hires working hard but unkind and inconsiderate towards my own life goals.

Great people and very encouraging supervisor. Always felt I was needed. When there was something wrong I was not berated. If possible there was always someone there to help. Expectations were reasonable. I learned a lot.

I was hired on as a temporary employee to cover a maternity leave. Within months I discovered that it was the absolute best working environment I had ever had in my entire life. The people are fantastic, the company is realistic and the workflow is manageable. You couldn’t ask for more.

I got laid off but I'd always go back just for the family feeling at Macdon. I worked on the header/ flex Draper systems. I personally installed doors / side panels. Was my favorite job always give Macdon a good name.

While the variety & challenge of design work was there, salary was abysmal. The benefits somewhat make up for it, but other companies have caught up & if you're young & single, benefits aren't top priority. While most depts are filled with good people, mgmt is extremely poor in that they promote poorly & the ones at the top are old school mentality of creating a climate of job security fear. Chasms of ideologies exist between mgrs & depts with the production side being the worst...filled with self serving individuals with poor mgmt skills that have clearly reached their 'Peter principles' a couple promotions ago. If you're an intelligent engineer, you'd be better served to find a modern workplace culture with good managers where you can grow.

It's really fun to work in here, the only thing that makes it difficult is the assurance of your job because of the lay off. the medical benefits are one of the best if not the best.
