Specialist (Current Employee) – Alberta – 16 August 2017
I have worked for Nedco for many years in inside sales, outside sales and as a specialist. Like all companies in Alberta, many changes occurred in the last several years. I am happy to say the new leadership in Western Canada is very positive and I look forward to continuing to work for them and participate in these positive changes.
Great people, amazing customers, fun environment
Some issues with inventory that are being addressed and resolved
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 7 August 2017
A typical day at work started at 8am and finished at 4pm. I learned about the electrical supply business and the different products involved with that. The management is stale and needs to be injected with new blood to move forward with the business. The hardest part was convincing them to make any changes to my client to increase sales.
Counter Sales, Inside Sales (Current Employee) – North Vancouver, BC – 12 June 2017
Not a great place to work. Constant changes with an upper management team that tends to only make false promises. Continuing to run branches with a lack of staff and expecting more out of the few employees remaining at these branches are all causes for an unhappy working environment.
This was a good company when I started but when head office started making management changes from the west the company went downhill. There might be one person left in the Winnipeg office that was there when I was let go.
Shipper/receiver/counter sales (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, AB – 11 January 2017
Was a good place to work up until management changes. The lloydminster branch is now closed due to the economy. I learned how to manage inventory and keep a tidy workplace. Had good coworkers. Hardest part of the job was nothing.
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 October 2016
This company thinks of employees as just a number. They will cut you as an expense to appease the share holders or so management can make its bonuses. Little to no rewards for hard work or exceeding targets.
Great Work Environment with ability to be hired on through Agency
EMT amd PVC Pipe Picker (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 29 January 2014
I would pick the metal and pvc pipes and guards for electrical contractors with the use of a forklift. I learned about the materials used on electrical job sites. Management was very kind and always said Hi and gave me time off whenever needed without hesitation. The hardest part of the job was leaving because I enjoyed all aspects of the job - my teammate, the materials i worked with and understanding what each piece was used for, working in doors and out, great staff and phenomenal management.
Hardworking employees with a knack for fun and goofing off
receptionist and Operation Manager's Assistant (Current Employee) – Edmonton – 19 June 2013
I began my position at Nedco back in April and was immediately taught the fundamentals I would need to be successful at my job. The pay is very good and the management is very supportive of you as a worker, even when you're off the clock. They work hard and play hard which creates a great balance and family oriented vibe which I can appreciate, as I come from a large family myself. They do give you the chance and opportunity to learn, grow and move up in the company. I have witnessed 3 employees move up the ladder in my short time here. It's very motivating.
free donuts on Thursdays, no overtime, bbq's
bad chairs, old computer systems, possible relocation
I had a very good experience during the 18 years worked at Nedco.
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 17 May 2013
I worked with a great staff and a good manager. There was a variety of work and responsibility. The company provided useful training programs. The hardest part of the job was getting there on snow days. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people and being valued as an important contributor to the Branch success.
