Stay Far away
Welder/Fitter (Former Employee) –  Trenton, ON6 February 2020
Not well run management runs company by seat of their pants.
Changes company policies when it suits them.Could be a good company to work for if they got rid of a couple of managers..When work is slow they tell you to stay home instead of work sharing or layoffs...

Was great at first
Shop Welder (Former Employee) –  Trenton, ON1 January 2020
All of the good upper management quit aka the people that actually cared about the business. The rest went down hill from there layoffs, terminations, damage to company vehicles, theft of company and personal belongings, employee’s sleeping around with a boss and them showing up at the work place to settle a dispute. You do not want to work here.

Overall a good place to work
Welder/Fabricator/Apprentice Millwright (Former Employee) –  Smiths Falls, ON1 January 2020
Overall it is a good place to work, some overtime and some traveling. You work on a variety of projects and never do the same thing. Not recommended for someone who wants to be home every night but dont except to only be home on weekends or to be away weeks on end. Management is frustrating sometimes, but if you can deal with them and follow all the paperwork/procedures they require you to follow you should be good. Most employees(if not all) are not happy with management for one reason or another. There is a high turnover rate of employees, but most skilled tradesmen who were let go were for legitimate reasons and they were given and told many times to fix problems, but once management noticed issues they kept a close eye on them.

Too many chefs, not enough cooks.

Superb Culture
Employee (Current Employee) –  Smiths Falls, ON14 September 2015
It's a great place to work! I've had many jobs in the past, but Kilmarnock feels like a big family. They are very results-oriented and conscious about their employee's needs. Since it is a smaller company, advancement opportunities are somewhat limited, but they are willing to train and help you in any way they can.
