Estimator

 

Fun, Loud, Fast Paced and Team Oriented…. JUST a few words to describe our Culture!

 

Kitchen Fashions (a division of the Home Fashions Group) is Fredericton's oldest kitchen destination. 2018 marks our 42nd year in business.   Throughout those 42 years, numerous trends, good and bad ideas, countless product innovations and an emerging mass of entry line competition from overseas, one thing has remained consistent...change.  And now we are growing!

 

One of the best features of Kitchen Fashions is our team. We have a close-knit group with a genuine love for the work we do. We work hard to deliver the best experience and our daily environment is fun, loud, fast-paced and requires a great amount of teamwork. As a small team there is lots of opportunity for working on a variety of projects…each day is different which means there is no time to get bored!

 

Work-life balance is very important to us and we offer many benefits to support that, including medical/dental benefits and a gym membership. We believe in helping the community and often take the opportunity to be charitable.
