Horrible depressing place to work
Polisher (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON19 March 2019
Supervisors are not properly trained in dealing with people . Very toxic environment. If you complain about pain or hurt yourself they will do anything they can to get rid of you. The management sticks together and will lie to hr in order to protect themselves. You must wear a full body suit gloves and a helmet respirator that is not regulated for the environment you work in . You are definitely just a number. If you dont do drugs this is not a place for you . Surrounded by negativaty and favourtism. Certain supervisors can be found in the production office on you tube and Facebook while your sucking in dirt and sweating your butt off.Run away from this place as fast as you can.
Pros
Quitting the job
Cons
Believing it was a career

Very bad place to work
Polishers (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON25 January 2019
Pay is decent but this place is managed by immature children who have favourites. They bullly employees when you talk to lead hands or supervisor they sweep it under the table. You can be the best worker in the world but once you rub any higher up the wrong way once your marked they will excessively watch you talk down to you
Pros
Good oay
Cons
Unprofessional management

Kuntz Electroplating treats its employees well
Management (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON1 November 2018
Good place to work. Employs very good people. Lots of opportunities and the benefits are great. Sometimes the decision to promote from within is questionable. Favoritism and unprofessionalism is pretty obvious.
Pros
Great pay and benefits. Good people. Family owned and operated.
Cons
Favoritism and unprofessional conduct of certain supervision/management

Good group of employees . Too much unfair management practices at times .
Lead Hand/Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Kitchener-Waterloo, ON17 January 2018
If you aren`t afraid of hard work and getting dirty , this is a job for you . Fun group of co-workers for the most part . Work can be very repetitious and can cause strain and pain on the body . Decent wages and benefits although not as good now as they had been in the past . Non-unionized which works well for the most part although can lead to unfair work practices at times where seniority etc are not always recognized as they should be .
Pros
good benefits and decent pay
Cons
some mandatory overtime, Non-unionized with sometimes suspect work and labor practices . MOL involved from time to time.

It's okay if you need money with no experience.
Trainer & Polisher (Current Employee) –  Kitchener, ON19 August 2017
I worked here for 3 years. Management and HR are prone to having a bias approach. If a superior doesn't like you good luck. It's very dirty. Stuck in there ways e.g.when temping for heat stress they check under the air conditioning even though your in a a full body suit. Changes need to be made in my opinion or there wont be future generations of senior employees.
Pros
3 20 min paid breaks
Cons
Eventually everything

Repetitive as can be.
Polisher (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON11 April 2017
If you enjoy sweating your butt off while doing the same thing 1000 times a day, then this is the place for you. Poor communication between management and co-workers.

Chrome Plating Specialist, Racker & Inspector (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON19 July 2015
Seniority rules over everything. Work is hard, environment is extremely unhealthy, management treats you like garbage.

My car was keyed in the parking lot, they had it on camera and did nothing about it.

Nothing good to say about working here. Anything is better than Kuntz.
