    My experience at Kaycan has been beneficial to me in many ways.

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is the people you get to work with first of all, and our customers appreciate our top notch service, which is truly one of the highest qualities that we provide here at Kaycan, along with our latest siding innovations with our Helios DaVinci siding.

    Cons

    Challenges of working here at Kaycan is the low budget for maintenance up keep, much like many companies, however I also believe that if u are the type of person that finds them selves a handyman and a bit of a "Magiver" Then this job is for you.

    warehouse hell

    May 27, 2015 - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    It's Monday to Friday. The pay is ok. Good place to learn how to use a forklift and power Jack's.

    Cons

    No sick days, basic benefits, no room for advancement, poor organization, poor managment, poor communication, lack of staff, customer service lacks product knowledge. Head office controls everything. Facilities, equipment are rundown. Warehouse materials come from kaycan. And not from a materials supplier in home city. So takes months to 're-stock important materials. Managment would rather threaten you with your job, then work with you to help you grow and learn. Kaycan university training web doesn't work on their own computer systems. Product storage un-organized and doesn't have specific locations for proper picking procedures.

    A company where motivation goes to die

    Sep 15, 2021 - Sales Manager

    Pros

    Not tied to an office all day.

    Cons

    *Zero support from management, only negative, condescending feedback. *Ownership/Upper Management takes no suggestions from anyone on ways to make branches more efficient which in turn will increase sales. *You’re preached to about being a family owned debt free company with a brother, sister and brothers boy being so reachable and easy to work with, when in reality it’s run worse than the most greedily operated corporation, only unlike a corporation, there’s no checks and balances as far as stockholders or a board to right the ship. Kaycan is a complete dictatorship and ownership almost seems to relish this aspect, which is appalling. *A very ‘70’s management style of bash, beat down, belittle and bully to take the drive and motivation out of employees. *Sales managers have absolutely NO on the spot decision making abilities and have to what on responses from ownership, which could be 10 minutes, 10 hours, 10 days or never, and can kill potential deals. *Commission structure is nothing more than a setup for failure. It’s purposely convoluted and confusing so you eventually don’t even question it, and are made to feel that you should feel thankful for being underpaid per industry average, and enjoy being talked down to by the almighty ownership. *Turnover is ABSOLUTELY MIND BLOWING!!! The region I was in consisted of five branches, so five of my positions and a regional manager. In the little over four years I was with them, there were 16, that’s not a misprint SIXTEEN people that were in those six rolls. Five were fired and the other 11 found actual careers, not just a stop gap minor league job like this dumpster fire is. This review may seem like sour grapes, but it’s truly not, as I’m just trying to warn potential applicants to this company to beware of the pit of hatred and distain the powers that be of this outfit have for their employees that grind day in and day out making them 100’s of millions of dollars while they pay far far far below industry average for the positions.
