Very busy and effective shop to workfor
Service Writer (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB8 August 2018
My typical day was writing up work orders for every truck that came in for repairs and upon completion of repairs I would close work orders and collect money or put on account.

Hardest part of the job was being that I was not a mechanic so I relied on my mechanics to assist me on difficult work orders.

The enjoyable piece of the job was the folks I worked with and the customers that came in.

Good company with bad engineering management
Mechanical Designer (Former Employee) –  Saint-Eustache, QC12 February 2018
Good company with good salary/benefit. Unfortunately, the engineering management is shallow-minded and not well managed. If you are a new employee you have almost zero training and no coaching and they expect you to function without errors, no room for mistakes. Your evaluation is made based on the opinion of few people and if they don't like you for some reasons your days are over. You could achieve a lot of things but if you make a few small mistakes you are finished. They don't treat you like a person as a whole rather like a machine. So think hard before you quit your company to come here.
Pros
Salary/benefit
Cons
Closed minded engineering management

Amazing working experianc
Service Technician international region (Former Employee) –  Elskiltuna3 January 2018
North American companies have a lot to learn from the Swedes. Sweden has a very small population Yet Volvo Truck is the world's largest truck manufacturer The reason is simple. The company treats it's workers as family. Doesn't matter what you do you are treated with respect and made to feel as important as Company President
Pros
I travelled the world
Cons
Had to be very careful and understanding of other cultures. No room for error

Formerly a great place to work with a highly dedicated and motivated staff. A great deal of freedom was given to the engineers to explore ways of improving the product and making it as suitable for the customers needs as possible.

FLEET SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON5 March 2017
Volvo has a quality product and has a good employee culture. As all companies within the automotive industry, it's business is cyclical. The Canadian division has minimal number staff that are responsible for many duties within their particular department. A quick pace environment that is constantly changing is one of the best and worst aspects.
Pros
Benefits and salaary
Cons
Very busy and fast paced

Heavy duty field mechanic (Former Employee) –  Terrace, BC2 March 2017
Great west equipment was a great company to work for. I thrive on challenges and learning. I was able to attend volvo training a few times a year to keep on the latest technology and machines. I was a field mechanic and very much enjoyed it. GWE treated their mechanics well and pay was good. I would enjoy another position similar to this.
Pros
challenging, learning, field work
Cons
overworked occasionally

Daily struggle to break team "silos".
Manager; Dealer Credit & Operations (Former Employee) –  Aurora, ON22 February 2017
While I have had many positive experiences with the Volvo Group, the current environment at Volvo Financial Services in Canada is one of dis-function from a management perspective.
While individual teams work well, and do communicate with each other when necessary, there is no Leadership from the current Managing Director, whom actually seems to encourage team management silos, and prefers a "passive-aggressive" management style. The most enjoyable part of being a member of the VFS team is the people/staff, and their willingness to give a little extra to deliver excellent service to both external & internal customers.
Pros
The people/staff
Cons
Managing Director
