As a lot attendant, everyday is relatively different, as each department may require your help with a variety of jobs. Following a fast-paced schedule, working for Volvo has been nothing but by pleasant, with great coworkers and amazing management.
Great place and brand to work for. Ownership was supportive *****
Oakville & Hamilton locations are prime areas for brand.
Sales staff and service staff make a comfortable and special experience for guests
Great place to work for those who strive to be at the top of their game and continuously train and improve their skills. Very talented mechanics who can quickly diagnose and repair any vehicle complaint that comes their way. All mechanics work together to support each others growth. Overall, it's a good place to work.
Volvo makes a great car and offers a great place to work at their dealers. Fun, well treated, and appreciated. More than I can say for those big corporate companies who own many dealers where you are just a number.
Volvo dealers take care of the employees because they take care of the customers.
Work integration schedule was well organized by HR and training program on first week .
Great technical teams,professional coworkers, flexible work time
Good communications with Unions leaders and supervisors .
Working at Volvo is a great experience, it truly is like having a second family. The staff are so friendly, the salesmen help each other out instead of trying to compete for customers. Having this culture is truly why I believe we are the #1 Volvo dealership in all of Canada.
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 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.
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
I travelled the world
Had to be very careful and understanding of other cultures. No room for error
