Krown is ok
TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON16 December 2018
To work for Krown is ok. It depends on the centre or shop as if you have a good job. in my case not really. I have friends in shops where the work to life balance is better, as well the Head office is a cool place to work.
Pros
steady year round work
Cons
pay is poor in Richmond Hill. Long hours and no bonus and no room to advance

Great and easy job for anyone capable
Car Detailer (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON19 November 2018
Depending on what position you're hired for, Krown is a great place to work.

There's plenty of options for you to be working, and you'll come to learn that it's not that hard either, it's primarily just memory based.

It is repetitive but it's nothing too strenuous, all in all worth the time working there, even if you just need a quick job for summer.

Pretty reasonable place to work
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Fredericton, NB9 December 2017
Not a bad place to work. The people were great, the hours were good, the pay wasn't bad. Couple places nearby for lunch.

Morning traffic to work sucks. And working in the cold is likely.
Pros
Above normal pay
Cons
Responsible for driving peoples cars

Gainful employment
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Lanark, ON1 December 2017
In all honesty, it is hard work...but then again it is WORK! you will spend all day on your feet, can be dirty. Was provided respiratory masks, gloves and a uniform. Learned a lot about customers and about myself. It can be a seasonal job...but if you are a good worker have good social and oral skills and don't look like a scrub that just came off the welfare line they will keep you.
Pros
Work environment, boss kept it up beat, often bought lunch, benefits, uniforms.
Cons
On your feet all day, doing fleet!

You gotta really love it to do it
Spray tech (Former Employee) –  Stittsville, ON6 November 2017
be prepared for really hot sweaty summers and freezing cold and wet winters. 10 hr days with retention bonus after the busy season. pay is okay for maybe someone who is jist getting out of highschool.

unless you own the place...do not make this your career
Pros
free lunches and snacks sometimes, no strict rules besides do the work when its time to, lots of lay around time in the slow season
Cons
its not a career, the pay is not the best, you gotta earn your breaks..you never will until lunch.

Less stressful in the summer.
Car Washer (Former Employee) –  Bolton, ON9 June 2017
Work is fairly simple and easy to adapt to. A normal day would be a car to work on every 30 minutes. When it isn't busy, you need to clean up around the place. Employer is very understanding.
Pros
Hour long lunch
Cons
Stress

Nothing Lasts Forever
General Labourer (Former Employee) –  Schomberg, ON13 September 2016
If you are seeing an ad for a job within this corporation in the months of September until November stay away unless you are desperate.
You are only going to be needed for a very short period of time during "The Busy Season".
The average employment span of a Krown Employee is only 2-3 months. You will work VERY HARD LONG HOURS!
You will not be with your family very much or at all during the fall months.
It is very fast paced gruelling work. Prepare yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally. Tempers can become very short amongst you and the other temporary employees.
You must be able to think fast at all times.
You must be open-minded when it comes to work duties as well. Never think "That's Not My Job." "I Wasn't Hired To Do That."
You could be washing vehicles, drilling holes in doors, spraying the bottom of vehicles, or even crawling underneath big vehicles outside in the cold rainy weather. Krown does them all big or small.
Krown is an awesome product, process, and corporation. The downfall is that it is a very tight knit group of core individuals.
Advancement only comes from within this group. I found out the hard way that it will always be "just a job".
You will never have a full time permanent career with them unless you are a family member, a member of their faith, or unless you have the financial means to own your own location for yourself.
Pros
If you are at the right shop, it is an excellent experience., They are the largest Rust Control Company in the industry with locations in Canada, Us, and Europe.
Cons
Dirty, Tiring, Physically Challenging (long hours on your feet)

Excellent place to work
Customer service (Former Employee) –  Saint John East, NB11 March 2016
Krown Rust Control was a great opportunity for me. My Co-workers were excellent in teaching me the about the business. I enjoyed working with the public. My position there was to answer phones and questions that the customer may have about the product. I booked appointments and called to remind them of their appointments.
Entered data daily and some accounting duties- simply accounting.

Fun place to work. Once you learn the duties and pace it is satisfying to work as part of a team and give great service to customers
Labourer (Current Employee) –  Concord, ON7 February 2015
A day at work is repetitive. A customer will come in with a vehicle and we bring it in. We prep it then rustproof it, then wash it. On busy days you function like an assembly line with set jobs assigned to each employee.
Over years I have learned much about cars and the automotive industry.
I have also learned that having a good relationship with your co-workers is vital for success.
That said, getting along with others can be the hardest part, especially during the busier days.
The most enjoyable part is seeing a customer leave happy as well as proving to be an important part of the team.
Pros
Fun environment, free lunch on Saturdays during busy season
Cons
seasonal work

Everything Wrong With Todays Workplace
Oil Sprayer, Detailer (Current Employee) –  Greater Sudbury, ON16 January 2015
9-5 job that is dirty and chemical filled. respirator 70% of the day or your heath could take a drastic down word spiral. Soaked to the bone every day in undercoating oil, witch soaks into your skin, and diluted cleaners. A job that should be compensated at least 15 $ an hour given the operator of the shop will keep your safety in mind, have a proper whimis and msds system in place and provide sufficient glasses and gloves and respirator equipment. Other wise stay away because it is not any sort of career path because the chemicals will get you. And if you do stay long enough to get good and take on more responsibility, do not expect any incentive or compensation because you will be treated like a worthless person regardless of work ethic and attitude because we are viewed as slaves. The position has been referenced as n****work by the operators who arbitrarily manage their employees wages on a friendship baias.
Pros
over time in busy season
Cons
no xmas party, no benifits, no saftey protcols, no outlined saftey procedure, shortage of hours, lay offs with 1 day notice
