Agricultural Machinery Technician (Former Employee) – Moosomin, SK – 13 September 2018
To many people with ideas that are out of touch with the customers and the employees, especially the service and parts techs. You have to fight for the the wage you can get tooth and nail, every time I was reviewed they were happy with performance but could not give more money to to economy, other employees, monthly budgets etc.. bonus system out of touch,now replaced with system that is meant to drive service sales whether machinery needs it or not. Poor out of store management, not personable.
Good benefits, decent rsp match program.
Poor leadership outside of the store you’re in. Skilled tradespeople, are not considered an asset, as they should be.
Terrible place to work if you hold any value to your free time
Field Service Technician (Former Employee) – Balzac, AB – 13 July 2018
If you value your free time and having any type of work/life balance this is not the place to work. If you don’t have a life and want to make a bunch of money, these guys will work the bag off you and give zero appreciation for it. Work more hours than legally required, take a day off after working nearly 2 months straight without any time to yourself and you will lose your job for standing up the manager. I do not recommend working here at all. Get an apprenticeship started, and get out of there soon as you complete it.
Zero job security, you are just a number to this place.
Journeyman Mechanic (Current Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 27 February 2018
They pay their journeymen mechanics about $8/hour LESS than other shops in town/around town. They do not encourage advancement, or reward hard workers. They look for excuses to fire people, and there is a high turnover.
Would NOT recommend working for RME. It was a good place to work back when it was Case IH, but not any longer. Going public made the company go downhill.
They are posting a starting wage of $32.72, but a journeyman with 5+ years with them is being paid $32.00 currently.
Receptionist/Shipper Receiver (Current Employee) – Grimshaw, AB – 17 January 2018
So far, I really enjoy working for Rocky. There have been some bumps in the road but every job has those. The management and staff are pretty easy to get along with, and no when and when not to have fun.
Flexible hours, staff BBQs, Friendly environment, full time hours 24/7.
Shipper/Receiver (Current Employee) – Grimshaw, AB – 14 October 2017
I am currently employed at RME, and it's by far the best job I've had so far. The staff is very easy to get along with, you get tons of hours, and it's an upbeat, positive work place. If you're looking for a job where you won't mind actually getting out of bed in the morning, this is it. This company finds new ways to challenge their employees by providing new tasks and jobs on the daily. RME takes strategic actions on with a smile every single day, and dependable IS really what they do. Wouldn't rather work anywhere else!
Lots of OT during harvest, staff BBQ every month, pay is great, lots to keep you busy during the busy season, etc.
Great place to work with a friendly and supportive environment
Recruiter (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 12 October 2017
Started with the company not to long ago and the experience has been amazing so far. Everybody is quite supportive and helps each other out to accomplish our day-to-day goals. On boarding was great, and everything was prepared from day one. Would strongly recommend this company to anyone who is looking to work for a stable, and well established company.
Heavy Duty Mechanic (Former Employee) – Grimshaw, AB – 10 October 2017

Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 2 October 2017
The workplace moral is terrible, constant issues between departments and management are blind to all issues regarding how to run a successful business. Very hostile working conditions in regards to management along with constant job threats for not meeting unrealistic sales demands. No training or guidance and this company has the worst onboarding of any company I have ever worked for in the past. Lies are constant about commissions and base salary must be paid back with paid out commissions. No chance for advancement. Do not apply for this job. Worst company I have ever worked for.
This company is a revolving door - controlled by a CEO that unplugged the clock to save time. The branches are divided into silo's that compete with each other to abuse the customers. No Branch Manager to oversee each location.
There is nothing good to say about this company- be ready to watch your back - HR dept is good at terminating people.
Parts Technician (Former Employee) – Killam, AB – 1 August 2017
This place is the worst place to work for do not apply to this job the people are rude and will try to get you fired, it is the worst place i have ever worked for management doesn't help you when you need it most and doesn't couch you or train yeah.
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Canada – 23 July 2017
A very immature and unprofessional environment. There is no training and management hoards knowledge as though it is a secret. There is no team. Every day felt like D-Day especially with all the management's closed door meetings. Not to mention all of the "disappearing acts" one in particular would make. The branch I worked at was not producing and it was full of hardworking people who seemed to have just well, given up! Too bad it all starts at the top. Expect the worst so you won't be dissapointed.
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Vermilion, AB – 13 July 2017
RME hired the worst sales manager ever to lead the sales team. He has no knowledge of farm equipment and has no management experience. Upper management also seems to be out of touch with employees and what's going on in the farming industry.
Mechanic (Former Employee) – Vermilion, AB – 10 July 2017
As a experienced CNH mechanic, I thought the job sounded good. Severely disappointed. It's who you are, not what you do that counts. Constant belittling, management posting rework against your jobs, when caused by their pet employees. Offered full benefits, but wouldn't inform how to access them. Had an injury in the yard, with blood pouring off my head, and service manager berating me for being idle.. Had apprentices that baited journeyman, as they knew they were untouchable..the list goes on. Saw three journeyman move on in six months.. sadly cannot recommend this company in any way.
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 3 April 2017
I worked at Rocky Mountain Equipment for about 3.5 years. I enjoyed my position but the turnover was brutal. It was crazy busy for 2/3 of the year and the other 1/3 was incredibly slow which makes for very long days. Overall It's a decent place of employment.
Administrator (Former Employee) – Bow Island, AB – 7 February 2017
Overall my experience working here was great. All my co workers were great to be around. We all worked as a team, my job was the administrator but I had no problems helping with other departments such as parts.
