General Helper (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 3 April 2017
I worked at Kitchen Craft, including one summer, for a year and a half. I have no real complaints, the work wasn't that heavy, it's not that dusty (although they recommend using a face mask), and there is no extreme pressure like most factories. I would recommend this job to someone who's looking for a challenge.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 14 February 2017
Kitchen Craft may be a good choice for sales and designers, but there is not much training available however. Limited office jobs as the head office is based in Winnipeg and the USA, so not much room for growth unless you are content with staying in sales and design.
JURNEYMAN CABINET MAKER (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 8 February 2017
kitchen craft is a great company to work for .great management great people.great product to work with .they still have not let me go fully but the industry is very slow now no work. but i need a change
In my case after the death of my sister i was asking my supervisor if i can ask for some help from them since tjat time i was having domestic problems myself and i was taken for granted. Then my car was repossessed by the bank and i talk to my supervisor that i needed help personally. Buf instead of getting help i got dismissal from my job.
Free lunches, profit sharings
HR doesnt have a good relationship with their employees
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 12 October 2016
The management team only cares for thwir tight circle. They will fire you for no reason. They cut to 4 day weeks without paying you for the 5th day. They only care for themself and if you are part of their group, you won't last long....
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 4 March 2015
Started out great. Happy at work. Then new owners came and things changed from a family run business to a profits are there number one concern business. They will layoff there own family if it meant making a tiny profit. Bottom line is they don't care about their people.
They have this method of rating tradesman level A or B for an industrial electrician or level A or B construction electrician. So even if you're a licensed new hire industrial electrician you get labeled as a level B construction electrician with a pay rate of 31.00. The work is terrible if you're lucky you'll get to troubleshoot. There is no organization in the maintenance dept. No PLC work. Work through breaks. You have non skilled management telling you how to troubleshoot.
Production Associate (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 10 September 2014
My typical shift starts at 3:00 pm and ends at 11:00 pm. I am currently being trained as a machine operator for the painting process. The management seems to be fair and co-workers are most of the time cooperative. The hardest part of the job was my first week, I have to learn from scratch as I have no prior knowledge on production. But the fun starts when I adapt to the work and work is now easy, thanks to my co-workers.
