Project Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON9 March 2018
I started with this company as a Fixture Installer and have moved up the ranks to Project Coordinator within a year. The Manager's at Brofort are very good at recognizing hard work and dedication. Having the right attitude, commitment and willing to go the extra mile will go a long way.

The hardest part about the job is that you get the occasional overnight work, however, that comes with the nature of Retail Solutions. The most enjoyable part of the job is that there's always something to do or a new challenge to take on with Brofort.

I've learned so much and I'm still learning everyday. It's definitely a rewarding company to work for. I'm looking forward to having great success with Brofort.
Pros
Travel, Potential of advancement, Rewarding

Been here long enough to see a lot of people stay, and a lot of people go and a lot of people leave and come back again :)
Manager (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON1 March 2018
Overall Brofort Inc. is challenging and fast paced. Brofort is constantly growing, and looking for new opportunities to support their customers. Which is why they are so diverse.
Many departments,(Fixturing Dept., Construction Dept. Maintenance Dept. Warehousing and logistics, Print Dept.) and over 130 employees across Canada

The main focus is retail services, the majority of work is updating stores with new fixures/signage/ full reno's, so of course retailers do not want this type of work happening in their stores while customers are shopping. So nights aren't for everyone. BUT if you want to grow, and be a valued member of the team you do have to understand this. So picking and choosing the projects you do, will get you less hours.

If you are self motivated, and are willing to dig in, roll up the sleeves, get dirty, and put in some hours, the company will invest back into you.

Travel isn't for everyone. Brofort does arrange all the travel arrangements, and offers a per diem a day some people tend to forget travel doesn't mean site seeing and extra curricular activities the main reason is for work

Overall I am happy to still be here, I have a great boss:), I love what I do, and the day to day challenges, I have learned a ton!! This comes from starting in the field, constantly try to learn more even after all these years and continuing to work hard.
Pros
Lots of room to grow within the company, challenging, always something new to work on

Management Trainee (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON28 November 2017
Good company to start your career.
Work life balance can be non-existent depending on the day and projects you have going on.
Salary is comparable to others.
Advancement is minimal.

Installer (Former Employee) –  Toronto17 July 2017
Brofort inc works with major retailer and vendors. Because of this the job site and work is always changing. Nice to not do the same things day in and day out. The hours are not the best for family life, but the work is consistent, which is nice!
Pros
Consistent construction work
Cons
Work hours are always changing, lots of last minute changes

Site Superintendent (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON20 March 2017
Brofort has very poor management, they have staff employed by them that break the law with no consequence. And they project manager lives by the code what happens on the road stays on the road.
