Canada best and popular employer KMC Tools and Equipment. Its families running business. They are rising very faster way. Now they have most of province their shop you can find KMC Tools. Near about 500 employees working here. The management flow all Canadian standards policy. Though salaries is not very high but all employee are satisfied for working environment. All manager and supervisor helpful and try support all employees. If you particularly work Edmonton shop that great place. Everyday you can meet new people and cultural, growth opportunity if you worked hard. All co-worker supportive. If you really love retails sales it could be perfect job for you.

Enjoyed working with co-workers

Enjoyed working with co-workers and typical day at work. Running the department and organizing and setting up sales of the company. Opening new branches in outside province locations.

if you enjoy tools but don't need a big payday this is the spot

days consisted of stocking shelves and selling tools. if you enjoy tools and don't need big pay this is the spot. great to learn about everything out there. however it is a retail job in Edmonton so hard to make a living off of.

Pros

KMS Tools is an amazing company and business

One of a kind Industrial, automotive and consumer best choice shopping for Tools and equipment in all industries. Everyone has expertise in all departments and learning, amazing team work. Purchasers are the best I have ever seen, from basic stock purchasing, marketing, pricing and always keeping up with the newest products and evaluating product sales. Management is doing their best. KMS Tools is growing like a monster that has left management behind. They need a professional corporate management team. If that happens, Home Hardware, Home Depot and all the big box stores won't know what hit them Wish I could have finished my career there! Hope they move into Ontario and the east of Canada. We need them here.

Pros

free cans of pop and bottled water, plus smokies once a month

Constant stress .. toxic environment

One of the most stressful workplaces I have worked in. Management believes that they can extract the most productivity from a worker by not training, discouraging lunch breaks, not allowing coffee breaks not allowing employees to sit down, encouraging constant and continual interuption of deadlined tasks, shorting vacation hours with very poor explanation, no support from management regarding difficult or abussive customers, constant suspicion and blame and accusation from head office, installing site blocking software on computers thereby reducing effective sales opportunities, not giving proper benifits in a timely manner ie 90 days after employment, leading/missleading and false promising employees about benifits. Co-workers are all fantastic people who deserve to be organized and represented as a worker group.

Pros
