Dyno Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Dyno Nobel is a manufacturer of explosives. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Incitec Pivot Limited operating in Australia, Canada, the United States, Africa, Indonesia, Mexico, South America, Papua New Guinea and Turkey.

A former employee mentioned, "In my time with Dyno, I noticed 2 major issues. C level and senior level VPs and directors were indecisive, unrealistic and completely out of touch with the goals of the business as a whole and the individual departments. Rather than investing in their people, they would rather brag about the savings for their department all of which was at the cost of the mid level management and hard working staff under them"

"Extremely clueless and poor management. They will throw you at the job with 0 training and no support. A lot of nepotism. They do not pay overtime. Most people here hold jobs without proper background/qualifications or post secondary education..so then imagine how you can work with a bunch of tools. Cons: no recognition of work or awards, VERY poor management"

"Always very worried about costs. Layoffs always immanent. Sense of fear about if you will have a job constantly. A good company other than that. Very interesting work."

BEX Quality Champion (Former Employee) says

"The management at Dyno Nobel heavily relies on its hourly workers to not only do the production work, but also to carry the weight of many extra job tasks that are not reflected in the pay. The culture is very split between those who work, and management. There is very little room to advance and even less room for change. Cons: benefits aren't great, They don't care about their employees"

Booster Operator (Former Employee) says

"Worked at the Wolf Lake plant over ten years and done a good job. The new HR person didn't know her job and was bias. Had lies told on me and it done me no good to try and defined myself.For sometime there was no air and we had to wear heavy uniforms the temp would get pretty HOT! I tried to point out defects but only was told not to worry about it. A BIAS place to work certain people got away with a lot while others would get in trouble for little things.The only reason I liked working there was the money,benefits and close to home. The work wasn't to bad but some people made it hard to just do your work.Most of the co-workers was nice.Glade to not be there any more but hate how some people made me look. I did the best I could but ten years of loyalty wasn't good enough. Cons: seemed managment didn't care about conditions you worked under"


"Management is not organized. Typically employees can do what they have to do to complete the daily but task. There is no repercussions if they don't complete them. Other people then are asked to complete the task that should of been completed hours ago."

Diesel Technician (Current Employee) says

"This job as a Diesel Mechanic is a decent job with minimal supervision. If you are not a self starter, you will not survive. There are too many people that pry into your personal life and professionalism is only employed when it is suitable for the moment."

Current Employee - R&D Member says

"I have been working at Dyno Nobel full-time for more than 5 years Cons: - Mandatory to complete safety training but no one follows it, and management doesn't enforce it even when safety concerns are brought up - Business accomplishments are not valued and do not contribute to salary or career advancement - Site has an engineer that doesn't engineer anything and breaks things that are already working - There is favoritism for a select few at lehi that is blatantly corrupt and it hinders others from being able to do their job. When reported to Corporate, all corrupt parties kept their supervisor positions. - Lehi lacks checks & balances - All lab equipment is broken, and management asks you to "work around" it"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I have been working at Dyno Nobel full-time for more than a year Cons: Micro-management, empire building, low morale, ego driven workforce. Worst politics I have ever seen. Very conservative and strict culture, command and control are everywhere. If you don't question management or anyone you will do fine."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at Dyno Nobel full-time Cons: The upper Management will create little cliques and their perception is what matters at the end of the day. If you have high integrity, ethics and morals; either they will find faults in the smallest things or berate you in front of your colleagues."

"I have been working at Dyno Nobel full-time for more than 10 years Cons: Arrogant management, company preachers family values but treats its employees as a number not people.

Brian says

"I realise you get different levels off service from different workmen depending where you live in the UK! I'm in Fife, Scotland and have had 4 different occasions over the years to need Dynorod's "Services", each time I would describe this company as "Cowboys"! Latest occasion, We called in November '20 thru British Gas Homecare for blocked drains. First appointment was a NO SHOW, Second Appt on 26th November a really disinterested guy looked in for 5 minutes, said we needed a part and was away to another job but would be back when he got the part! This is now 28th January two months later and they're still waiting on the part! Absolutely Useless Company!"

James says

"What a total waste of time! Engineer booked on Monday for drain unblocking on Tuesday PM. Call from dyno-rod on Tuesday PM cancelling the appointment, saying the engineer would be with us Wednesday or Thursday. No show Wednesday. We called them Thursday, told engineer would be with us in the afternoon. Called them again at 5:20 PM to be told we’re next on the list. Call from engineer 20 minutes later - he’s got a couple of other customers first, so will be 2 or 3 hours. Oh, and the cost will be the out of hours rate, so an extra £60 or so. Called the call centre to see if that’s correct, that department had gone home, best they could do was email that department and they might get back to us in the AM. Told them to forget it, we’ll find someone competent instead. It’s a shame - we’ve used dyno-rod before and been really happy with them hence why we called them first this time. Service has clearly gone downhill, a lot."

Scott Cameron-Cowburn says

"Reported a blocked toilet 8.30am, was told someone would be here by 1.30. I was called around midday to say it will be after 1.30 as they were busy. I chased it up at 3 and was told they can't give me a time but someone will be there. Chased again at 5.30 to be told the visit had been cancelled - no reason given. Now too late to get someone else out today - abysmal so called 'service'"

Emmanuel Amofa says

"Beware they will scam you and threaten LEGAL ACTION. One of their guys came to my house responding to potential drain blockage I had called them about. Turned out it wasn’t a blockage so he said I’ll not charge you for any work done just £50 for the call out. I said ok fair enough and paid £50 cash to him. This was before Christmas. I received a missed call from some mobile last week didn’t recognise it so I text to ask who it was. It was Dyno-rod chasing me for £50 invoice to my surprise. I explained I paid the engineer on the day, they insisted I email them what I have said to pass it on to the right team. Email sent, next thing I know I received a “Pending Legal Action” letter from Dyno-Rod about the £50 which I have already paid. I emailed them no response so I guess to avoid going through legal nonsense I’m going to have to pay another £50. Absolute thieves. Beware"

Dave Parry says

"Appalling. Booked to unblock our toilet on Friday and was promised a Monday morning appointment. Didn't arrive, so I called and was promised they would arrive that afternoon. Didn't arrive. Was told they urgent jobs booked in (what are we then without a toilet!) and would get to us for 2-3 days!!! Absolutely appalling."

S Miller says

"Poor service wrong quotes and like others say dont turn up ."

Mark Baylis says

"Booked via british gas homecare cover, they then transfer the work to our local branch, in Stockport. They have repeatedly failed to come when they say they will and what is worse they dont even have the coutesy to call to tell you they wont be turning up. So far, 4 missed appointments for plumbing and 5 days missed appointments for drains, not a single courtesy call. Beyond appalling customer service."

Toby Sanders says

"On Blue Monday 2021 we discovered that the ceiling in our coat cupboard had fallen in. Upon further investigation we discovered that above the collapsed plasterboard ceiling was the bottom of the bathtub. We presumed that there was a burst pipe and the bath we had had last night had leaked and caused the ceiling to collapse. Based on the recommendation of my brother in law we gave Dyno a call. First off, you speak to a national switchboard who then resource it to a local company - not a local team, a sub contracted company which wasn't explained, but also wasn't not explained. The lady we spoke to told us that 'We'll get someone out to you today' and that they would be here before 1800 that day. They explained the charges and how the costing would work. We relaxed, waiting for the plumber to come and fix our problems. At about 1530 a knock at the door and a man came in. He explained that he wasn't here to fix anything, he was just here to take photos and would then provide a quote. We were a little disappointed but fine, a quote would be useful. We didn't hear anything the next day. On Wednesday we called Dyno plumbers again. We spoke to the national switchboard who gave a number for the local branch which we called but it turned out to be outdated. We called Dyno again and were transferred, but that was cut off after ringing for several minutes. Fortunately we'd taken the number from Dyno so we called the local branch directly. This is when we discovered that these are sub-contracted companies rather than local branches. The chap at the local company didn't have the details of our quote and said he would call back within the next few hours with more information. They rang back several hours later and asked for an email address to send the quote to. We got the quote only to discover that it was totally unrelated to the bath plug issue we'd reported. We were instead sent a quote for £900 for the replacement of 4 radiators, with no mention of any of the issues that we'd not only reported but which a random man had taken photos of! So now, I still have water dripping from my bath, I haven't got a plumber to fix anything and there is some random man walking around with a dozen photo's of the inside of my flat on his iPhone! I can't see how a company could mess this up administratively any more than Dyno have done. The issue is how difficult it is to get hold of the person you need to. That makes the company completely useless and we will be going to a local tradesperson instead. Avoid."

Josh says

"Needed a quote for a new shower pump. Booked the quote in and the engineer never turned up. I had to re-book the quote for a few days later as it had apparently 'dropped from their system'. Had to wait almost 3 weeks for the job to be booked in. The fitting day comes around and lo and behold nobody turns up. I ring up to re-book and have to wait a further week without a shower. So 2 days booked off work for no reason and I've no idea if they will even turn up again. Awful."

Ricardo Osborne says

"Best advise I can give is just don’t use this company. I have used Dynorod on several occasions for my own home and managed properties and until now found them excellent. Today I have had appalling service from Dynorod and will not use them again."
