Specialized Labourer (Former Employee) – Lake Country, BC – 19 December 2018
Working at Natural Factors was very team orientated. Individuals worked as part of a team and interacted with each other. There were benefits to working long hours. It was a fun, interactive work environment.
Office Worker (Current Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 17 January 2019
Every day I learn something new and there is always a rewarding challenge to tackle. It's exciting to be a part of a growing, dynamic company that is looking continually forward to building and improving. I work with many different teams and find that there is a mutual desire to contribute to success. People are, for the most part, polite and respectful in this multi cultural work environment.
We've seen changes in management during the past few years which also means a change in culture. Keeping the traditional family feel has been a challenge but we see management working hard to try to maintain that while driving efficiencies.
Hardest part is to keep up with the growth. Growth is a good thing but brings it's own challenges such has available work space and parking.
Best part of the work day is being with such a great team of people that are proud of making a difference in the health and well-being of others.
Educational Wellness sessions, Staff appreciation lunches, career growth opportunities, training and development, good benefits
Clerk I (Former Employee) – Kelowna – 25 October 2018
Why do you think so many people are going on stress leave? why do you think so many people are applying for jobs at all the new companies starting up in the Winfield & Kelowna area? because this company has a bullying, intimidating atmosphere - it's chaotic, negative and harsh. Do not apply here if you want to work at a supportive, people driven company. Management has taken courses but they are just faking it - didn't take long for them to show their true colors again.
Office admin (Current Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 16 July 2018
The people are great to work with and benefits really good. Decisions could be made faster in some areas in my opinion. Sometimes you can move around to another job if it's a better fit.. I did that. Overall good place to work.
Free product, benefits, Coquitlam has a fitness space, prizes for core values program, yearly staff appreciation event you can choose what you want to do with family
Slow decisions sometimes, sounds like maybe some things need updating to make decisions faster
Good place to work if you are desperate for pay check
Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 27 March 2018
Cons Management is poor. Hardly recognizes hard working people no opportunity for advancement In some areas make you work to the ground. Will literally hire anyone when hired, usually on contract terms and takes time to get full time Staff are full of religious fundamentalist and will not allow you to take actions that goes against their beliefs
Pros Will literally hire anyone Probably one of the best benefit packages you will find in canada
Line worker (Current Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 13 December 2017
I have worked at Natural Factors in the production area for more than four years and find it to be a very rewarding place of employment. For those individuals that work hard, your efforts are noticed by management and advancements are frequently seen. I am passionate about the Natural Health Industry and to be able to work at a company with the same values make this a perfect match
Quarterly staff appreciations - lunches provided; great benefit package
Excessive bullying and zero appreciation for their hard working employees
Clerk (Former Employee) – Winfield, BC – 13 October 2017
Employees had no raise for 5 and more years. Their top management very focused on frequent bullying and intimidation of the best and dedicated employees. Please stay away from this kind of companies at all cost. Should be investigated for bullying and for harassment by the WorkSafe and Ministry of Labour.
extremely bad company
bullying, harassment and frequent abuse from their top managers
Senior management may be OK but onsite management has no clue.
Dry Prep operator (Former Employee) – Winfield, BC – 31 July 2017
I was a believer in advancement from within ones own ranks, till I worked here. The flaw of course is if the job is stacking racks or tightening bottle caps--this is not the place to get your management from. Mechanics? nope nobody has a clue using same gasket a hundred times... for them no problem just apply more torque at 150 while next to it are nylon washers that can only take 50... hmmmm they do not see a problem. Multiple work accidents are every day. If you do not speak English and can not get a job any where else... guess it might be the place for you.
Health care if you can make it through the first 3-6months
Picker/Packer (Current Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 6 June 2017
Friendly people, educated staff, it's a really nice place to work I just don't feel comfortable on a temporary position on a lower income. They can call without warning and tell you there's no work. I'm looking for something a little more permanent but still currently working here.
Free lunches, good people, weather appropriate, easy for transit, good work
Senior Graphic Designer (Current Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 19 February 2017
Day to day work can be frustrating due to constant last minute jobs. Workplace culture is incredibly conservative and uptight, which drains a creative brain. From time to time, I'm assigned exciting projects. People I work with are what make my job enjoyable.
Bulk Packaging (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 9 November 2016
Toxic work environment. Management is built on seniority, and not qualifications. They will find any way to cut down hours but increase production. The job is very fast-paced and repetitive. You will guarantee hurt yourself at one point or another. Worst job I have ever had.
QUALITY CONTROL SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 5 October 2015
Natural Factors has provided me with a platform to conduct high quality testing on their products, and I stand behind what they manufacture. The company values quality, team work and safety. I have been provided with strong analytical chemist experience, strong interpersonal and leader ship skills.
BULK PACKAGING OPERATOR (Current Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 26 September 2015
Its a busy place but you enjoy to work with very nice people around. They are very supportive and helpful in a lot of ways. You get to learn things everyday and you improve your working skills. The most challenging part is, it takes a lot of physical work. Because it is a production company. The most enjoyable part is, working and growing with great people.
Msp and benefits paid, free drinks (ie. hot chocolate)
