Enjoyed the Dealership but Organization in Transition
Finance Manager and Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 December 2018
I was able to accomplish quite a bit in a short period of time at Waterloo. I came in as a Sales Consultant and ended up being a Finance Manager. Waterloo Ford Lincoln was going through a major organizational transition and many of the managers were moved, displaced or terminated during that time.
Beautiful dealership and great people working there.

i would suggest to applicants to avoid working for Waterloo Ford Lincoln, they treat their young apprentice technicians like dirt job security is no such thing, and management is very pathetic, the amount of stress you get from the management it's not worth your time. they make promises they can't keep about raises doing your ford training and the reality of it all is they don't pay you well. they'll have apprentices do work that they're not qualified for and threaten your job if you deny a job or tell them you would rather have someone else do it and show how to do the task.
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 August 2017
Typical day at work is to make as many phone calls as possible to drive sales. Most of management lacks the ability to play a supportive role & help you. You are expected to work 60+ hours a week if possible because you can't be successful without extreme dedication. Not a job for you if you love & want to be with your family. Best for people without kids or old.
Former Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 January 2017
As an actual former manager at Waterloo I can say they have quite a bit of work to do. You do not get any support from ownership as a car sales person....and One of the worst service department client satisfaction ratings in western Canada. They will probably sell to another auto group in the near future which means more change in an otherwise unstable place of work.
Good Money, Great Co Workers, Management Needs Improvement
Automotive Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 25 February 2015
It is nice to work for a family business that has been a pillar in Edmonton for roughly 70 years. The sales staff are great to work with but management falls short. They are comfortable with where they are in their careers and do not have the ambition to progress; this attitude then transfers to the rest of the employees.
