Auto Tradesperson in Saskatoon, SK
on 25 May 2021
Anxiety ridden, unhelpful, managers nowhere to be found to help
Felt unsecure after getting hired. Finding out youre not doing what you were hired for. Became a janitor instead of a tradesperson. Noone wanted to help train you, youre on your own once you walk in. Youll take company courses every other day, emails and accountability is all they push at you.Were treated like youre in grade school even doing the simplest tasks at your job. Was told by some good luck moving up here, gotta wait your turn. Others simply say I’m not getting paid to train anyone, so you just wander around and try to figure it out on your own.And discovered i was hired at the lowest pay band, i took a 10.00/hour paycut to join, forget it. I wish theyd have a try before you hire day, id have avoided this career move knowing what i know now. Managers noplace to be found to discuss a concern, but will email you reminding you to do another online course. They push mental health but all that place gave me was anxiety everyday. Its a different culture…Think carefully before you join!!

It's not the best company to work for
This company is okay if you are the type of person that wants to learn all the time and spend your free time going back to school. If you don't have a degree, you will not go far in the company. I've seen people who don't have business degrees run departments and they don't know what they are doing. As well SGI also gets rid of hardworking people who make one mistake and "tells them they aren't ethical enough to work here". Temporary or Term people are not safe here, so be careful when applying here. As well if you try to apply for a permanent job here, you aren't priority because of seniority.

Good
Good company to work. SGI is a Crown Corporation. It is employee friendly organisation. ... There is employee union which helps you resolve any issues with the management and seniors. Lot of learning opportunity and connection between employee and manager is good.

Government benefits but lack of ethical boundaries and micromanagement
My experience with SGI went downhill within 6 months of joining the company. It started great as the team is welcoming at first but then they go super quiet with you for no reason. Benefits are good and the only reason you should prefer SGI over other crown companies is if you're comfortable studying insurance for rest of your career. They will pay for your insurance courses (if you pass) but will basically keep pushing you to take more courses if you want to climb up the ladder. Studying is not the only sad part when you work for SGI, most of the management specially underwriting management lacks ethical boundaries and have no respect for privacy or work ethics. If you try to raise any concerns to HR or union they put you in one category and soft target you in every meeting trying to get you to speak up and keep you in their watchlist for the whole time even if you change departments. They will use every resource they have to find out more about your concerns indirectly. So, if you are someone who likes to lay low and keep quiet about your concerns then you should be ok working there but if ever speak up about them (even once) then say goodbye to your privacy. Management's surveillance standards has no boundaries and they're not at all transparent about what they monitor but trust me they monitor/watch everything - your screen, your work chats, calls, your social media outside work hours, even your personal devices if they get super interested in you but they will never be transparent to you when they give feedbacks. At first I was ok with being micromanaged as I used to mind my business working but then things got super creepy when my manager used to repeat my every activity from my social media and then he tricked me in taking my cell phone number after a work related event and since then my cell phone started acting up in all sorts of weird way. Management and employee relations work together and shows they promote diversity and care about mental health but if you ever find yourself in a situation where management pushes you to meet the employee health relations, don't say a word and find another job and leave. It's one of management's tactic to harass you, find out more information about your concerns by sending you to meet Employee's health relations and basically use that information to transfer you to another team or prepare a warning against you using information about your mental health. They also do this to somehow prove that you are not fit for the required job and will never accept that actually all the harassment is the reason employees mental health is impacted. Nothing is confidential in SGI (absolutely nothing). Union is not at all a support for employees, it doesn't even protect employees and basically agrees to what management says. Union just acts as a bridge in communicating with you about what HR or management expects out of you or conveys you their decision, union will do bare minimum in defending you in a difficult situation. Rather you will waste your time raising your concerns to union and in return they will do absolutely nothing specially if it involves a concern about a management personnel or a senior member of the team. Company is trying to implement a culture where they show employees feedbacks are important but none of the management likes feedback and don't like anyone raising concerns, in return they stop talking you when you raise any concern and no matter how productive you are they will ghost you out. Managers specially in Underwriting department (both Commercial and personal) don't have a sense of balance. Either they will creep you out by showing they know everything about your personal life or they will ignore you completely. Both ways you should trust your instinct as you will get tired of asking for feedbacks, management will never tell you anything directly and tell you everything is good but they will act differently with you the whole time. If you point out any wrong thing done by management they will harass you indirectly, verbally or show you the way out eventually. The hardest part of the job is not the work, mostly you will find helpful team members across the company and easy to follow training sessions and procedures but make sure to not trust the first person you meet as most managers have invasive attitude and they try to know you in and out so they can find a common topic to discuss with you in the meetings and then make a decision about your journey in SGI. With more and more people leaving the company because of micromanagement and not being able to speak freely, I hope it's a wake up call for SGI's management to respect employees privacy, re-evaluate their surveillance standards and become more involved with the actual work rather than silently watching employees personal affairs. Management in Underwriting/underwriting admin services is in dire need of some refresher training on treating employees with respect so they don't misuse their managerial power in dominating an employee that will eventually affect your mental health. Good benefits overall but you will end up asking yourself if it's worth the stress.

Work for a private company. Management is so bad they don't listen to your complaints even if you are on the right side. Union is a joke and if you ever get in problem either leave the job or suck your problem up.
