    I have been working at Finning full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good and hard working employees for the most part, standard industry benefits and great business model for growth

    Cons

    Many changes within BP&S team in the past few months without leadership or strategic approach; Hiring and keeping expensive contractors instead of keeping knowledgable employees. The CIO acts as a bully and there is no oversight on his costly decisions and the chaos he has created. He was given the ultimate authority by the past leadership team and since they have left Finning, the new leadership team has not assessed CIO’s negative impact and outcomes so far.
    Moral is low and BP&S employees seem lost while the new CIO brings in more of his people on high paid roles and contracts.

    Advice to Management

    CEO and the Board to review CIO’s undertakings, actions and decisions so far and don’t limit themselves with his big presentations with no tangible outcome. They also need to limit the number of contractors and use full time employees to keep the knowledge in house and reduce the cost

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Finning (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the recruiter who prescreened me and told me all about the position. She made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. She was very engaging and also talked very positively about the company and it came through about how much she enjoyed working there.
