Cortina Kitchens is a very good place for a job. Working here shows me discipline and hard work. The coworkers are very nice and hard working. They always will help if you need it and they have your back depending on the people you meet.

Over the years, they forgot that it was their employees who helped build their successful company.

Great product and well run organization. They care about their product. Your whole experience there though revolves around putting in unfair work hours...10-14 hour workdays and weekends plus no holiday time off. Your evenings and social life is near non existent. They pay fair but not great. They harbor professional jealousy in some respects and don't fully appreciate the value of a great employee. It's strange. Their great aspects are good though and they are decent people and friends. They run a highly organized business. They're very intelligent and far sighted. Overall, recommended but be cautious about advancement being a slow grind.

Pros

Pay fairly well.

Cons

Extremely long hours.

Tons of work, no life.

Although you may be a sub-contractor they require you to work 5-6 sometimes 7 days per week. However they cover all the pesky small things of being a sub like liability insurance WHMIS and etc. Typical day is you get your work order, travel to site, sign in and begin. Without question you'll be the authority on the job you're doing since what you're doing is the final product so anything you need to change the site will take care of. Do not let that get to your head. we are all replaceable.

Pros

Hardware supplied

Cons

Small compensation for long distances travelled

An alright place to work.

it was too uptight, i like a humble and easy out going work environment, it just was not there. Thats the main reason i left, Everyones to uptight, and the management team needs to be replaced

Fast-paced and exciting

Vacuum, sweep and polishing large wood work machinery with little supervision. Here I learned to be independent and built a strong work ethic as discipline is required for this very physically demanding to be successful at this organization.

Pros

Fair break time

Cons

High physical demand

Manufactures a quality product.

Cortina Kitchens is celebrating it's 25th year in Business! The company manufacturers kitchens for the construction and new homes industry within the Ontario market in addition to the retail and renovation private sector. Cortina owes 100% of all it's success to the plant and office employees who work extremely hard. Like most jobs, there will always be some aspect of difficulties to overcome.....but in the end, having management and employees on the same side, working together to improve and continue the growth of Cortina and personal growth of it's employees, both striving for excellence, is our primary objective.

Pros

great group of employees

Cons

a 44 hour work week......very long days!
