Excellent co-workers, extremely poor middle management
Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Alberta30 March 2018
The people I work with are some of the most trustworthy and intelligent people I have ever worked with. Management is the complete opposite. The company has been horribly managed in the last 2yrs+ ever since they merged all 3 divisions into one entity. They treat their field personnel like garbage, no support. Many good people have quit over the last 9 months over middle management but the higher up managers don't seem to care. No raises since 2015 but the door rate to the customer has increased since. Can't see myself working here in a years time. Sad part is the President of the company is a pretty good person to approach and talk to. Too bad all management here aren't like that. Communication here has been a problem ever since I started here. Also the parts dept is in a sad state of affairs, they don't stock much at all anymore. Apply at your own risk.
Pros
Co-workers, Mon-Fri work schedule
Cons
Middle management, no raises in 3 yrs+

Parts Manager (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB19 March 2018
This place of business would likely do better if it was in a different location. Signage does not really promote or reflect what this business is all about.

Pressure and more pressure
Sales (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON29 January 2018
Wajax is a toxic environment to work in. Staff is overworked and underappreciated. Constant pressure from middle managers makes it difficult to take after a while. You are expected to go above and beyond your normal job. However, great place to make money if you have what it takes and to remove yourself from the BS. Excellent products and top of the line manufacturers are represented by Wajax. Company is growing again and will be hiring.
Pros
Money and benefits
Cons
Middle mgmt

Fort St John Branch
Partsperson (Former Employee) –  Fort St. John, BC21 December 2017
This Branch is horribly mismanaged and can't keep parts people due to lopsided job scopes and existing staff. This branch is not open to change or success so if your at all creative or ambitious do not apply.
Pros
pension

Incompétence de la gestion
Technicien (Former Employee) –  Quebec City, QC25 October 2017
Bon emploi, nous avons du challenge à chaque jour, distributeur de produits de qualité mais du à une mauvaise gestion du service et des pièces les clients sont mal servis. Difficile pour un employé qui veut donné le meilleur service au client. Bon programme de santé sécurité, qui peut être même lourd a certaine occasion. Les avantages sociaux sont supérieurs à la moyenne. La formation est donné localement ou chez les manufacturiers mais il y a encore un manque à ce niveau, il n'a pas de plan de formation pour les employés selon ce qu'ils font comme travail. Résultat certain on le training que d'autre aurait dû avoir. Le salaire pour technicien est représentatif de ce qui ce paye dans l'industrie. Le moral des employés est très négatif envers la gestion. La communication entre les employés et les diffèrents niveaux de gestion est déficiente, même mauvaise. on demande régulièrement l'avis des employés sur différents sujet soit par le biais de sondage ou meeting avec période de questions mais rarement écouté ou les résultats sont très long à obtenir ce qui pousse plusieurs employés à se présenter au travail pour puncher pour une paye. Il n'y a pas de sentiment d'appartenance et de fierté. Pour tous ces points négatifs se sont les clients qui écopent et la mauvaise réputation de Wajax dans le domaine perdure.
Pros
Salaire, avantages sociaux, produit de qualité vendu, fond de pension
Cons
Gestion, communication, ambiance de travaî

More work load but not compensated for it
Parts Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON17 October 2017
Wajax expects you to work long hours and not compensate you for it.
Wajax has down sized some of its staff except not replace its staff so therefore placing more work load on its present staff.
The morale here is very poor.
Pros
okay with family needs
Cons
Very demanding, not compensated for extra time worked, havent had pay raises in 3 years

There is racism in the members of management. They have soft corner for those who they like and the one who is not in their list is just an ordinary worker who can be fired anytime for any reason.
Pros
large size public company
Cons
prejudice management

Wajax was good
Warehouse (Former Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON4 August 2017
Wajax power systems as a whole entity was a fun place to work for my 5 years there, was a very fun place to work and had great people as colleagues. unfortunately by the end of my employment management went in the gutter and they hired some in qualified people to run the show. I would recommend Wajax as a place to work, if Management was changed.
Pros

Be careful of these reviews
Workshop technician (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB7 July 2017
I have worked for Wajax and anyone reading these reviews should be aware that anything over three stars are more than likely written by management. No one that I worked with thought that highly of the company or management so be careful.
