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, ON – 1 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.
Lots of room to grow within the company, challenging, always something new to work on
