Place for people who don't care for a future.
Receiver (Former Employee) –  Concord, ON19 December 2018
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

Great company to work for
Employee (Current Employee) –  Canada6 July 2018
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.

good pay but you will work hard
Office Manager (Former Employee) –  Keele Street6 October 2017
The company pays well but will make you feel guilty for days off, sick time and even vacation. You are expected to be responsible for everything that goes wrong. Help from management is more like, "well go fix it"..they are always too busy working on other things. VP level is like royalty...don't look them in the eye and bow when they walk by. No support at the worker level. There is no loyalty for the long standing employees. So many have mysteriously left over the past 10 years...people who built this company. Its like they worked hard, were paid well and then let go for some obscure reason and others were hired to replace them at 75% of their salary. Thats how this business operates. If you need a job , then apply...but keep looking...there are much better out there.
Pros
none
Cons
Upper management attitude, disregard for front-line workers

Was a good summer job
Factory Worker (Former Employee) –  Concord, ON28 June 2017
Work was quite simple as we followed a schedule. Only time things got exciting or challenging was end of the month like most factory work. I learned how to work well with others and maintain a positive outlook of the environment. I really enjoyed the company BBQ and the staff. Overall was a great place to work at. Only improvement I would suggest is newer equipment.
Pros
environment
Cons
heavy lifting

Minimal communication amongst coworkers and management
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC24 May 2017
It's been a long time, so I hope they have improved. The role itself was simple, job is mindless and tedious. Unfortunately, there is no room for advancement. Office is really quiet that you can hear a pin drop. There is no transparency and clear communication from management.

Not a place for young Millenials
Project Manager, Business Transformation (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 February 2017
old fashioned work place where as recent as 2010 you had to wear tie and suit to work

not innovative, just a place to go and park yourself if you build the right relationships

business is slow and work environment seems outdated
Pros
steady income for mid level folks
Cons
no innovation or high pay

compagnie respectueuse pour ses employés
commis à la préparation des commandes (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC8 September 2016
un travail debout demandant précision et efficacité intéressant car toujours nouvelles commandes et nouveaux produits

J'ai appris à entrainer, à faire du contrôle de qualité, de l'inventaire.

Bons co-équipiers et avec divergentes nationalités ce qui était intéressant de connaître langues et mœurs.

Je ne trouvais rien de difficile j'adorais ce genre de travail de précision.

Je me motivais moi-même pour respecter les deadlines
Pros
repas payés et organisation familiale
Cons
