Warehouse Associate in Victoria, BC
My experience was over a 6 year span in 2 different locations. I have worked in the big main warehouse in Coquitlam and the store warehouse in Victoria. Both very different sets of people but everyone I've met in my time with the company have been very colorful characters meaning lots of personalities with their own kind of quirks but very fun to work with and also always a willingness to help eachother out. There, as with most places, are a few grumpy people but they fit in and are usually to themselves. I have seen a few different cases of workers come through both locations. I have some advise, If you have the drive to work and willingness to learn and aren't afraid to ask questions, then you will go far in this company. This company has always provided the opportunity for growth and progression within it. The managers I have worked with and the higher up GMs I've had the pleasure of meeting (who do come by and visit the stores every year--sometimes more than once) are very supportive people. It is a family owned business and they give to charities continuously. And yes there is a lot of stress that goes with any job within the company, but this is based only how you carry your stresses, what position you are in and even when the times were tough, you're in it with a fantastic team and the pay off is rewarding. As I said, you have to be willing to learn and ask lots of questions in order to excel in the company. There is a lot to know. But I wouldn't trade my time with them for anything else. It was such a great learning and job experience.

The hardest part of the job is caring about your work when the company only cares about profits. They only match to $500 for their RRSP program and the benefits are poor.

Good. When I worked there they were going through big changes and we got all the over time we could handle. They also had profit sharing, don't think they do that any more tho.

Best retail job I have ever had
I've been here a long time and don't see myself ever going anywhere else. I never thought I would make a career of retail but I like what I do. Love the hours at KMS. Having holidays and sundays off as well as my nights make having a life easier than when I was at the big box stores. Have met some awesome people here. Not without its challenges and struggles but you get that no matter what. Pay advancement is a bit slow but the benefits are pretty good.
