I was hired on when a new store was opening. I was promised there was going to be advancement opportunities and that there would be a good work life balance. Unfortunately with much talk about how I'm "a favourite employee" there is Still no advancement after many opportunities have become available. People get shifts according to how much they are liked (I actually heard the store manager saying this), many people get 2 shifts a week when I'm scheduled illegally many days in a row with no time off and only 30 minute breaks per 8.5 hour shift. The standards are extremely high, I'll have a 1:30-10pm shift and we never get out on time... sometimes we are out at 11 and no one even asks if we can stay, we are forced to until everything is folded and finger spaced perfectly. Great people to work with but hard to keep up to standard and we get over worked, they don't care if your sick they make you come in anyway and won't let you go home.
Great people to work with, awesome discounts.
No work life balance, get over worked, don't care about employees, short breaks, standards are to high for a mall store.
