Driver/Delivery/Wharehouseman (Former Employee) says"There was never a feeling that I mattered, I learned that I could never expect help, nor respect. Cons: Disrespect and abuse"
Commercial field supervisor (Former Employee) says"Work culture is riddled with back stabbing and finger pointing,"
Driver (Former Employee) says"Ok money and you got given a truck but at a cost.... Cons: Lots"
Roof Asset Manager (Former Employee) says"I have worked for this company before, years ago and this company has changed a lot since then and still seams to try to find its culture. It's for sure a good company if you are looking for a job and do not ask for much. If you are looking for a career you should rather try your luck somewhere else. I did not enjoy the lack of communication, the sort of disrespect, and the feeling to get put in a box; but maybe that is just me, who painted a different picture. I was let go without notice. They said that the department is restructuring, and received severance pay. What I found unfair was that 10 days later this company posted a job offer for my position. An ex-colleague told me that they hired a person for my position which they replaced with another person shortly after. Cons: No room for advancement"
Roofing Technician (Former Employee) says"Working for Penfolds was sometimes stressful as you were constantly working with teams that knew very little english. Safety was taken moderately seriously but I have seen much worse especially in residential construction. They were understanding if you needed time off for the most part. Management responded to your needs when you submitted any type of complaint or brought up anything in need of review. There are a lot of hard parts of a roofers job but hauling bundles of shingles across wet and slippery roofs sticks out in my mind as one of the more challenging parts. The pay rate was atrocious and was never enough especially living in Vancouver. This was made possible by the constant flow of foreign workers who were willing to work for little to nothing and didnt know any better. You literally had to work 6 days a week to make ends meet at best and hours were long and hard in harsh conditions. I would not work for a company who pays employees such low wages for such intense work again."
