Project Manager (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 23 August 2018
Good company but needs some improvements in the management. Work life balance is really good. some teams operate without sufficient guidance. some sort of management trainings are recommended to the leadership teams.
Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 2 October 2018
There are way too many issues to list but here are a few: - Employees don’t matter, people are a number and are replaceable which would explain the high employee turnover since our leadership came on board about 4 years ago. - The company is a sales organization run by HR with individuals who don’t come from a sales background. HR is more about aligning with the business rather than being the voice for employees. - Our leadership no longer instills the values of the founder, Dave Ritchie, the core reasons why the company became a success to begin with. They are listed as our core values but what happens behind closed doors is a very different story. Our CEO is about the bottom line and has no regard with how the company gets there even if it’s at the expense of others. - There is no longer any culture, you will rarely see people smiling. - Compensation is not industry comparable, long hours need to be worked to hit targets and the bonus payout is nothing to write home about especially considering the long hours put in to achieve it. Ritchie Bros is a multi-billion dollar company, compensation is more of a start up company wage. - The company is no longer able to offer a work-life balance environment due to unrealistic expectations and workload. - Companies are always going through change and change is good but it should never be at the expense of employees which is the new world of Ritchie Bros. Words of advice - if you’re looking for a place where quality of life matters and your opinion matters, save yourself the heartache and don’t bother. You will slowly lose yourselfmore... working here. I’m a current employee looking for a much better opportunity elsewhere where I will be valued and quality of life matters.less
Great people to work with - terrible work life balance
Sales (Former Employee) – Bolton, ON – 27 March 2018
Not a job - it's a lifestyle. You sacrifice a lot of life to work there. There is no work life balance whatsoever - no matter what they preach to you. Upper management definitely has their favourites. It used to be a great company to work for - now, everyone is a number and it's all about return on investment for shareholders. Very disappointing to see what the company has become.
N/A (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 16 February 2018
Terrible company and management, they only hire managers who know how to bully employees, and they do this to themselves as well!! Nothing but fighting and crying going on at head office (Vancouver) amongst the management teams. It is really that bad.
Accounts Receivable Clerk (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 1 February 2018
A typical work day would consist of constant follow up on your business unit and answer a high level of phone calls that relates just about anything. You learn to become assertive and unsympathetic to get the job done. Management , its a matter of luck who you got, but be warned that mood swings will constantly fluctuate and if you dont cope with it, you're pretty much done. workplace culture, you work for the shareholders and results, nothing appreciated for any work that is done. long hours. and managers do expect something that is over the moon.
