Big bullies.
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Concord, ON19 July 2018
Backstabbing people from the top to the bottom. Management is a bunch of bullies. Hr is a joke. Trainers are bullies and like to belittle new hires.
Unrealistic work requirements. Sabotage. Harrassment. I could go on for days. Avoid this place.

None

Bunch of bullies
Manager (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON16 July 2018
Dont expect any support - senior staff love to bully and belittle junior staff.

In my time there, this company showed poor communication and provided no support. If you didnt get the "How too" email, then tough luck.

Top power lift truck employer
Road Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Brantford, ON24 June 2018
Ryder, a part of crown lift trucks, Brantford branch.
Current road tech for this region and it is a far superior company to work for then many others. You are responsible for your time management and customer satisfaction/ retention. Good pay and benefits, new service vans that are well equipped with tools and supplies. Great management that is incredibly flexible towards your needs. In short, if you are a half decent service technician, Ryder will take very good care of you.
Pros
Far to many to list.
Cons
Cant think of any

30 year employees like to bully and intimidate other employees. Very tense environment. Micromanaged.
No help from anyone. No communication between departments. Politics, racism and other harrassment i have seen and delt with. Walking on egg shells. Horrible experience.

Overall good for the industry
Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 May 2018
A good place to work for someone in this field. Many of my collegues have left to go to other company only to come back to Ryder.
Sometimes the grass is not always greener on the other side.
Pros
Move up internally, good work hours
Cons
Low-Average wages

Worst place
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON22 April 2018
The worst company to work for. So disorganized and management is bunch of air heads. They will work you like a salve and no raise in 5 years. They provide no tranning and expect you to up sell item not need so they can feed off your sales. Stay away from this place.

Plan your own days, management/sales needs work
Field Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON4 July 2017
Schedule planning is left up to the technician. Managers monitor time billed by the technician to ensure 40 hours (or near) are being billed by the end of the week. (salary pay) I enjoy the freedom to plan my day, and go where I want to (Depending if there are break down calls.) Not a bad job overall, though the management, and sales needs some coordination, and communication.
Pros
Freedom to plan days, go where you'd like
Cons
Bad management, and sales at times. Often get caught up in correcting faults.

good culture, great place to work
Territory Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON27 April 2017
supportive managers. Hardest part of the job would be time management and covering the territory 100%.

the most enjoyable part of the job is that you make your own schedule
Pros
own time manager
Cons
micromanagement form time to time

Presently unstable environment until branch moves from London to Brantford
Road Service Technician (Current Employee) –  London, ON17 April 2017
Weak management in London branch is causing problems with customers leaving resulting in lack of work for technicians. Management does not listen to ideas to improve business. London branch is consolidating with two others in new Brantford location which will likely cause problems affectively servicing customers. The technicians are some of the best in the field. The vans are barely stocked but have decent overnight delivery of parts. Uniforms are supplied, boot allowance, tool allowance and tire sale bonuses are perks.
Pros
Company truck, benefits, pension plan, allowances
Cons
Management weak

Difficulty with change
Employee (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON25 November 2016
The company was purchased in 2014 and the changes that have occurred have not made for a positive work environment. There are two cultures present: The new one trying to mesh with the old one. Management having a difficult time adjusting to the changes required by the new company.

Hopefully changes will occur to make for a more positive place.
Pros
Nice people
