They will promise you the world, string you along without standing up to their end of the bargain and when you do ask them to live up to their word they will simply fire you and get the next sucker in line. Good luck.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – New Westminster, BC – 22 November 2017
Not a place for University educated people or people with the desire to grow. I have been promised promotions twice and moved to another location when my job performance was not the issue.
Management consists of people with no formal University education for the most part and the decisions they make reflect that. You will not be trained properly but you will be hung out to dry when you are not able to complete your duties.
Good place to work if you want an easy job with no real advancement but not if you are education and ambitious.
I am leaving the company as soon as something better pans out.
co-workers are mostly friendly, flexibility to fit in things outside of work.
Expect you to eat lunch at your desk, no breaks, angry clients, very poor management
Estimator (Former Employee) – Coquitlam – 18 August 2017
They will string you along and tell you what you need to know to keep you happy. After years of employment they will not give you any chances but will drop you in a second when someone who makes less money than you comes along or will not give you any chance if mistakes are made. I was lied to by ownership and upper management to make it seem like they cared to learn from another former employee they used the same speech for them and similar parting once something cheaper came along. Use them for a stepping stone only and dont hope for a long career. They dont care for employees....
People here will only use you and keep you in that position forever
Apprentice (Former Employee) – New Westminster, BC – 20 May 2017
Work there for 2 year no advancment nothing, kept complaining to manager they don't even care about your future only make you empty promise. Heard some apprentice stayed as apprentice there for over 8 years and he eventually told me he is going to a different trade.
Detailer (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 19 April 2017
I didn't work there for long, but given enough time i'm sure I could have got into another area of their work but it just didn't interest me personally. They had good work hours and the people at the location were nice to work with.
Met a lot of good people which I ended up being friends with. Management is horrible. They treat employees like chess pieces which can be moved to their needs. No guidance whatsoever. I was told by management that my unpaid OT was for my own training. Would not recommend anybody I know to work for Kirmac.
. (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 6 October 2016
Very busy, high-volume, fast-paced environment where upper management expects perfection, but proper training is not provided, priorites are not clear and very rarely are you rewarded -- not even a thank you. Say their core values are essential, but don't necessarily abide by them. Coworkers are gernerally great, but high turn around rates. I hope they learn from their mistakes and make some serious changes!
Not enough pay. Long hours. Quick to terminate. Stingy.
Body Technician (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 16 August 2012
This was an excellent place to really fine tune my collision repair abilities. With over 5 years previous collision experience the facility provided me with state of the art collision repair equipment such as car-o-liner computerized frame measurment system, car-o-liner frame repair rack and car-o-liner spot weld resistence spot welder.
