    was a good company at one time.

    Customers don't understand why they have two different brands of equipment selling against each other on the same property, Volvo and case equipment, There salesman working against each other and trying to sell there product to one customer, two confusing and customers are fed up with such stupid tactics. they are now moving towards cat and deer equipment and other brands.

    you have people there that do nothing but wait for phone calls to sell something, You need to screen these free loaders and get rid of them with cause.

    I worked at Strongco (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, but that's about it.

    Cons

    Very negative environment, department employees fighting with each other and in some instances arguments within the same department. Management and Human Resources has absolutely NO concern for well being of its employees. Employees are too afraid of being fired. Training provided was minimal.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't even bother, as they would fall on deaf ears.

    I have been working at Strongco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The have good training programs and higher management comes to many meetings. However they are just there, never actually there to help employee's with their issues.

    Cons

    Company has re-vamped their teams for Alberta and done a poor job doing so. There is no team feel, departments are run poorly meaning poor customer service and in the long run no repeat customers. New management is not up to par, and old/new staff are not working well. There is a lot of behind the doors conversations and whispers. They need to have more HR meetings with staff so staff can discuss management issues/concerns without threatening their job relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Office culture is the pits, there is no team work, manager favorites and too many closed door conversations. You want positive things to happen with the changes then get rid of the old and hire staff with experience and work on equality over fast numbers and shotty work.
