In response to tremendous growth in our company, we are seeking Custom Finishers to join our production teams in both Hawkesville and St. Clements (each just a few minutes north of Waterloo). Our Custom Finishers are integral members of the Chervin family, and facilitate a key step in the journey of bringing our clients’ dream homes to life. Chervin’s Finishers are known for their attention to detail, diligence, flexibility, and positivity, and enjoy the opportunity to manage a wide range of materials and finishes, work independently and as part of a team, and contribute to the quality craftsmanship that goes into every Chervin product.

This opportunity is full-time (49 hours/week). Wage commensurate with experience. Benefits are included after a 3-month probationary period.


Custom Finisher Needed



Since 1991, Chervin has been designing, manufacturing, and installing high-end custom cabinetry in homes across Waterloo Region. Over the years, Chervin has expanded to serve the GTA and the Muskoka region, and to build and/or acquire 4 sister companies (in addition to its founding company, Chervin Kitchen & Bath). These expansions have given us the opportunity to be a key player in the markets for high-end, custom residential cabinetry, luxury hotel furniture, residential furniture, custom upholstered furniture, and unique clocks and home décor.

We are a family-owned and family-run business, with a team of over 200 individuals pursuing “The Golden Means of Perfection.” This means, in part, that we strive to live by the Golden Rule (“Do unto others as you would have them do to you”). We do this by staying detail-obsessed, filled with integrity, and driven by purpose, so we don’t just meet but exceed our customers’ expectations. We create products that seamlessly integrate style and function, and develop fresh innovations to fit the unique needs of our customers. We’re growing more every year, and we’d love to have you join us on the exciting journey ahead!
