Great team - Welcoming atmosphere

Having worked at a handful of restoration companies, I would say I am most satisfied with Winmar. Everyone is welcoming, training is always available and consistent, helpful support is provided.

Always something different and challenging

Always something to do, never bored. Paid industry training. Good people to work with. Learn something new every day. On call work can be demanding, but pays well.

Pros

Family run, approachable management, opportunity for advancement, lots of company benefits

Cons

Long hours, always a deadline

Sink or swim type of place.

Are suppose to join you (the apprentice) with a journeyman to learn from. Nope, go do it on your own. There was no support, pay is just above minimum wage.

Horrible place to work. Do not work here.

Very unprofessional. Treats employees very unfairly, has a 6 month probation even though they tell you 3 months. Lets employees work without WHMIS certification and if you are asked to have one they make you pay for it. Has employees wear half masks without a certification either. Lots of employees steal from the company WITH the employers knowledge.

Pros

nothing

Cons

everything

Poor work environment

The owner only cares about himself, no one else. There are no benefits of any kind. The lower you are on the pay scale the more your treated like garbage.

Pros

Vehicle maybe

Cons

Treated like garbage

Terrible

The management here is atrocious, little to no communication. No one know's what's going on, employee's have to do way more than they are even being paid for, and overall just not a good work culture. A complete joke, it's laughable.

Pros

No micromanaging

Cons

No managing at all, horrible communication, unrealistic expectations and unknowledgeable ownership and management

Disappointing

Managers are treated with little to no respect. GPS monitoring, constant questions about where you are, and basic lack of trust. No recognition for achievements.

Family culture

What I appreciate most about working at WINMAR Kelowna is CULTURE. Our culture speaks to the company's leadership, compensation and team members. WINMAR has a high staff retention which makes for a close team you trust and call family.

No Fun

My review is i see Winmar as a Racist company i had to be calling a next worker Master just to not get fired and when i reported the incident my employment got Terminated. Was told work is slowing down and when i contacted Goodwill Career which was part of the Program they was told it was cat calling why they let me go ! whatever that means. And couple days after my termination i went to Service Ontario getting some documents and there it is Winmar looking for skill trade workers same job i was doing they put out vacancy. Also people came after me was still working after they fired me . I was the only Black guy working then. Note : I have a Certification in Construction Technology.

Pros

no

Cons

no

Worst company to work for very Clicky

Get ready to be on call no pay unless you get called out. Count your gloves but not your blessings. Don't expect for growth if your in contents. If your being bullied dont expect it to stop unless your part of the click. I could go on and on worst job ever!!!

Rewording work place knowing that you have been part of helping people in need.

Working at winmar was a good experience in demolition witch was not only physically demanding it also was about dealing with people who are going through hard times due to floods or fires in there home.

Poor management

Boss only cares about making money, overworked employees, and as result there was a lot of employee turn-around. Lots of manger fighting, inner turmoil and conflicts throughout the company.

Hard work with no pay off

The work is very straining, the hours aren't guaranteed, and the pay is minimal. One day you could be drywalling, the next your could be cleaning up waste water. No supplies provided and you start at minimum wage.

Not the best

Fast paced with little to no training. Supervisor was more for gossip than to train. In order to make a decent pay check had to do after hour overtime which was next to never.
