We wanted to write this blog to talk about our hiring process at Dean Cabinetry and how to pursue a position with Dean Cabinetry.
At Dean Cabinetry, our mission is to be an innovative and astonishingly great kitchen cabinet partner.
At our daily morning meeting, we take turns sharing something we are grateful for.
The other day our Warehouse manager Eric said: “I am grateful for the great team we have here at Dean”.
We really and truly believe the following:
Our employees are the most important part of Dean Cabinetry. Their personal and professional growth is what drives our company forward. Our people and our unique culture are what make us different. It is each of you that makes our business exceptional. You bring our products and services to life and give us an edge over our competitors.
We believe the people we want to hire will self-select into our organization. Meaning that they WANT to be here, and we want them here. And the people who aren’t a great fit will understand that and naturally weed themselves out of the process. We’re looking for people who are a really GREAT fit for our organization. Self-selecting into our family is important to us.
Most of all it is important that our employees LOVE what they do. That they enjoy coming to work and they enjoy helping customers. We are really looking for longer term employees.
If you think you could be a long term employee, and that you could love working here, please follow the steps below.

We are a growing company looking for people with specific characteristics. Those characteristics are:
Once an offer of employment is made by Dean Cabinetry, and it is accepted by the candidate, the training period begins.
Your manager will be responsible for your schedule and training of the role. If at any time in the first three months, the new employee is found to not be performing within Dean Cabinetry, said employee will be dismissed.
Subsequently, if after three months of training, it is clear that the employee is a great fit for the Dean team, their training period will end, and they become a full employee.
The purpose of our performance management process is to develop our employees’ unique skills and talents while motivating them to live and breathe our company mission. It includes feedback, goals, encouragement, and clear expectations. We want to live by our company values and create well-being for our employees and their families.
Our department managers will conduct frequent 1 on 1s, to review your job progress within our company and help you set new development plans. Our performance review program provides the basis for better understanding between you and your supervisor regarding your job performance, potential, and development within the company. Our goal with these interviews are to: keep it simple, have frequent interaction, focus on the future, and get employees to self-track.
Our reviews are about improvement. They’re not about pay. There is no time table for pay increases. Increases are based on personal improvement and there is no set time table for this.
We are deeply committed to growing our people and our business. Therefore, we plan to promote from within whenever possible. It is our goal to employ lifetime employees and create a place where prosperous lifetime careers are possible.
For example, Paul Kowal has been with us for over 11 years. He started installing for John and did that for many years. About 5 years ago he transitioned into our office and is now a custom designer working with clients to create their dream kitchens.
Certainly, we hope all of our employees can grow with our company. We want to provide the framework for growth and the pursuit of excellence. Going back to our mission statement, our goal is to be an innovative and astonishingly great kitchen cabinet partner. This partnership starts with the commitment to our team.
In short, our employees are everything. Their success is our success. Let’s grow together.
