Great employees but management is poor

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I liked working there at first but that didn'tlast too long, good thing the drivers were nice. they say they like to people go up in the company but if they already have someone in mind for a position, they'll still make you waste your time on tests. Too many bosses.

Pros

Free lunches

Run Away.

Too many chefs but no one knows how to cook. Meetings about meetings. Metrics Driven. It’s basically an acquisition company to make money for their investors and don’t really care about their client base especially small business or Film

Pros

I Left

Cons

Too many to list.

Unforgiving

Don't make any mistakes, they'll cut you loose fast. You can work a whole winter without issues, and if you make just a couple of mistakes, you're out. Take your lunch breaks, they'll deduct them from your pay regardless. Lastly, they expect you to put your family second to the job.

Pros

Geotab

Cons

Constantly breathing fumes and gasses, extremely seditary

No help from upper management

Always under stress they threaten your job,very high turnover in management ,they have no loyalty to there workers unless you suck up to management at branch level and upper , most times employees are looking for other employment . Management feels like United is the only game in town and insists that employees bad mouth other rental company's in the area and feel if they can take employees from other company's with not intention of keeping those employees long term

Pros

Not many but work boots and stress

Cons

Being oncall as punishmint

You are just a number

Upper management dictates goals that are near impossible to achieve. Hard to advance if you don't hit it off with certain people. Company is American and most of the programs and goals are U.S. related, it is like Canada is an afterthought.

Pros

Good benefits. RRSP match

Cons

Expected to just shut up and follow orders

Choose the right location

Overall very tiring days and very unappreciative attitude from the staff toward other workers. They care about how fast the work is done, but the collaboration to make it happen is not there. Left on your own to figure it out most of the time. Dangerous environment and bypassed security procedures could leave you dead at the end of the day Choose the right location

Pros

Good pay, Sick days, Free coffee

Cons

Long hours, Weekend over-time, Un-collaborative staff, Behavioral issues on the work place

Amazing place to work. All around great guys, always willing to go above and beyond for coworkers and customers. I've learned alot from them while working there. Unfortunate things happen but would always go back to work for them if the opportunity came

Didn’t hate it

I was lucky enough to have a great branch manager that offset the company. Pay was decent enough, but zero training and a broken apprenticeship system. I spent 3 years as a first year apprentice .

Succursale mal gérée

Manque de structure , manque d’employĂ©s, manque d’organisation par le superviseur et le BM . Toujours sur le stress a une vitesse accĂ©lĂ©rĂ©e, la paye et les avantages sont leurs seul force a leur succursale de pointe claire Ă©tançonnement

Horrible company

The management are a club that single out slaves (workers) and use bullying as a strong way to control the workers. If you like being constantly stressed out and enjoy bringing your work home then this is for you! The dispatchers belittle the drivers, the management is made up of personnel that have never done the positions they manage and got the job from being in the boys club. Firing single parents and promoting incompetent high school dropouts

All different kinds of equipment to work on.

Work at your own pace but get the work done in a timely manner. Order own parts, try not to order the wrong ones. All different equipment from small waterpumps and construction equipment to large equipment like fork lifts, telehandlers, skid steers and personel lifts(man-lifts and sissor lifts)

Worst company which only care about themselves

They hired me as a driver, yet they made me clean garbages and sweep the shop floor for first month. They present themselves as a large company which has lots of oppurtuniites to grow but they really do not. They are cheapest company I have worked for and shove saftey down your throat to protect there own self interest. At the end of the day, they do not care about your saftey at all. Training took about a month and I kearned nothing. They are constantly changing everything you do on a daily basis so do not think about making a schedule. I do not have anything postive to say about this company. The managment is very consending and it is the worst company ihave ever worked for.
