Laborer (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 18 July 2017
Working with my team each day I assisted in the preparation of cabinets, inspecting each one carefully to ensure perfection, sanding to work out any defects and finally staining so they were ready to be finished. I stood for long hours and moved heavy items around the warehouse for each new step all while keeping my work area clean and safe

Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 24 May 2017
I have no idea how they are now but years ago I was one of the few females working the factory floor and I was their Quality Control Inspector. I made the mistake of getting pregnant and they laid me off.
Cabinet Maker (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 23 May 2017
Great managers and supervisors, always felt proud of my work. I crafted cabinets, completed finishes, etc. I enjoyed the people I worked with the most, they're a great group of people. Would recommend working at Westridge Cabinets to anyone.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 19 May 2017
I felt that Westridge Cabinets was a great place to work. I loved my coworkers, they definitely aided in my enjoyment of my work life. The company went through a shift in management which did change things a bit but I did see many positive things come out of the shift. I would go back to Westridge if an opportunity arose.
Worked with a Great group of people in a High Demand Company
Estimator/Draftor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 23 November 2016
As an Estimator/Drafter I was responsible for creating CAD Drawings for customers and installers with the used of 2020 Technologies. Then inputting 2020 data into a Customer/Builder quote via a system called Westridge Database (WDB) which a salesperson or myself had created. Estimator would also be required to complete Service Jobs should any material needed to be ordered from our plant. The company is under new management so positions and duties may vary since my time there. The hardest part is limited staff and high quoting demand however the most enjoyable part, for myself, was the creating and designing and my co-workers.
barely operates with the guidelines of the labor standard board and numerous safety infractions
edgebander/moulder operator (Former Employee) – Red Deer County, AB – 29 October 2016
No paid breaks,interdepartmental communication very poor.few or no meetings employee input not desired. wages flat due to to many foreign workers or Asian \immigrants. Company only interested in investors, no profit sharing .supervisors arrogant puppets.management workers seem to outnumber production workers.
Wanted a top quality product! Didnt pay for what they wanted.
Labourer (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 6 October 2012
I worked at westridge cabinets they treat people like a dime a dozen as bad as Walmart! Managment was two faced they had two rules for people they liked and people they didnt like. To deal with someone stepping out of line instead of working to fix a situation is was easier to fire that person on the spot and hire someone to take their place.They dont cultivate loyalty in a employee.
