Some great people at work, but the hourly wage is really not what you need to survive in Kingston, especially with rising costs across Ontario. Very repetitive work, but not that bad. Night shift is tough and hard to adjust to.

Stay away from this company if you have a dream of growth. I am not sure if upper management knows what going on but the culture inside is "It doesn't matter what you know, what matter is who you know." The warehouse is full of incompetent people (Management). They don't care about their people. They only see us as a number/slave that they could replace anytime they want. As long as they get what they want, you won't matter to them anymore. It is not fun working here, there's no security and stability. There are people who have been working there for 10years and have not been offered yet a full-time status. If you're to ask me why I'm still there? Well, I want to try and change that culture until I can. I got nothing bad to say about the company, but just to the people who manage it. I believe that this company could still be fixed. Eliminate those leeches inside and replace them with more fit and competent talents/leaders. Also, the office people don't seem to be comfortable around warehouse people. It seems like they look down on us. FYI, these warehouse people are the backbone of the company and some of them have degrees and licenses as well. You're just lucky coz you got a connection that's why you landed a job in the office.

A typical day at work consisted of picking for eight hours and exceeding your score. It can very competitive which is the fun part. The management was very understanding.

Working for this company was a very challenging experience for me. It was a fast-paced environment, where work had to be done very accurately and timely.
Although physically challenging, I loved working there, because my desire was really to give the best of myself to our customers; and to find the appropriate solutions to all they needed.

This company runs off the exploitation of part time workers without having to hire full time and provide benefits. This company will find any way to exploit their non full time workers. The manual labor got more and more intense in a span of 5 years with part timers being forced to do tasks requiring forklifts. Many of the workers including full timers complained about having and/or developing back and other muscular problems due to the amount of labour/hand bombing involved.
Many individuals in management make the job and environment a depressing place to be.
Pros
Early start times, a lot of good people, overtime, decent starting wage.
Cons
Management, too much manual labour, dangerous forklift drivers

Working at this company, has increased my knowledge of knowing things related to the field of pharmaceutical products. It taught me how to work as a team player, to be observant of even the smallest detail, to be attentive and cautious on the job that was trusted to me, to put our clients first, giving them the best assistance, and to have respect for my superiors and my co-workers.
Cons
Very tiring job

Kohl & Frisch takes care of its own. The organization takes great pride in providing opportunities to its loyal staff, and providing the best possible service to its customers.

It takes a certain kind of employee to thrive there (intelligent, confident, honest and customer focused). But for those who add value to the business, there is plenty of room to shine.
Pros
Flexible work-life balance, good benefits
Cons
A lot of departments are segmented. Feels like separate companies working under 1 name.

I enjoyed the company of the staff members there, I got a very good and strong experience of picking, packing, auditing and stocking in those 13 years I worked there for. The hardest part of working there was they would change my shift every year two times and it would mess up the schedule of dropping off my kids to school.
Pros
The staff members that worked with me were very kind and nice
Cons
The shift time was changed a lot

was interviewed by the customer service manager. she seems very unorganized.
was asked 3 inappropriate questions before job was offered.

1. are you bilingual?

2. do you have a girlfriend?

3. can you start on a specified date?


first impressions was that the work environment was very laid back. no dress code.

trainer made a lot of very derogatory remarks towards women.

their was a lot of "I don't know" answers.

lasted a week in training before resigning.
Pros
