After a committee was formed to review the results, nothing was done to deal with the negative feedback. Our team of engineers provide customized training programs for design engineers, contractors and building owners. If you are working in a support to sales position, you don't have a manager and feel isolated when you constantly hear negativity from frustrated customers. His leadership style at times can be abrasive and difficult to work with. Suspected he was promoted to this role based on product knowledge and sales but lack people skills and leadership If you are seeking a career, I would recommend this company on the short term until something better comes along with another company.
In short a great place to gain experience and knowledge, but not a place to finish a career at. Our customers have learned to count on a constant and ever-increasing stream of product enhancements as well as new products. A Manitoba company that represents itself very well to the local economy with structured growth, a solid business plan and ample training opportunities. Our dependable quality, reliable delivery, and knowledgeable follow-up service have made Price a market leader in supplying air distribution, critical controls, and noise control products. One online employee survey was done.
Despite all the pride in the company's Manitoba heritage and global reach, the company suffers from low morale and below average pay scales. As an employee, you develop your own team with other departments with the focus of getting the job done in spite of current management support challenges. Flexible when taking days off. Price Industries - Who We Are The founding principles of Price have never changed — business integrity, first-class service, innovation and a commitment to people. The most enjoyable part of my job is documenting my work. Using automated systems, installing motors and helping others.
The culture at their head office in Winnipeg is far different than in Ontario. They don't interact with some employees without being in the presence of branch management. Worked with high technology equipment like multimeters, transducers, working with labview programs, Sound testing equipment. We are not afraid to move into whole new product categories if we believe we have a contribution to make. You do your best but at times, you wonder how the company can operate or make a profit behaving in this manner when you are not the only supplier in the industry. The management style of the leadership team is outdated.
Some of my co-workers were technologist and engineers. I do multiple types of jobs like sound testing, fan curves, throw testing, heat and cold testing, assist in calibration, installing motors in units. Visits from head office are too short and don't see the whole picture. Our application specialists provide in-house and on-site presentations, reviewing specific selection techniques and highlighting the unique features and performance benefits of Price products. No follow up from the committee or anyone in Winnipeg. We invest relentlessly in product development, in both differentiated niche products and standard commodity products.
I have learned a lot of things with this company. We have a large, experienced and talented team of engineers working constantly on breakthrough product ideas. Management was fair, always made sure everyone was happy and had work. No interaction, appraisals or yearly reviews. Our service culture makes the total Price Experience special and unique. Co-workers were great people always learning from each other.
After the end of the night I make a quick summary for my co-worker to pick up where I left off. I have learned how work with the keithley automated data readings. The department manager is the road block that would prevent anyone from pursuing advancement from support to sales. Worked as a team, always educating each other, how each product works and its applications. Our long-standing vision, traditional values, and the Price way of doing business are the cornerstones of our leadership position in the non-residential air distribution industry. After more than 60 years, Price remains a privately held family company with a deep heritage and commitment to innovation and service.
. My typical day at work is having discussions of task and priorities from co-workers on testing or work that needs to be completed on my shift to continue where they left off. The hardest part of my job was doing big radiated set up for sound testing when insulating the duct work and leaving unit open for proper sound testing. Learned the fundamentals of air distributions. . . .
