Great flexibility with schedules and awesome environment
Sales Advisor (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 25 May 2017
Working with Atmosphere stores is similar to most retail settings, but the product and clientele is what sets it apart. An emphasis is placed on healthy living and knowing what you sell, and it makes for a good conversation with customers and a bond between coworkers.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 19 May 2017
I have worked there for over a year. All of my co-workers and managers are great and are nice people to work with. You get to learn about the latest gear in the outdoor scene and get a great discount on everything in the store.
Disappointing workplace with no plans for its future
Department Manager (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 31 March 2017
This company has a poor corporate culture, disrespectful management, and a lack of direction for the future. They've shifted strategies so many times in the last few years, no one knows what to do anymore. In day to day work, part time retail employees are expected to treat the company as the be all end all, but are paid essentially minimum wage. It's a disgrace.
enjoyable work place, learned lots, working with costumers was fun

i really enjoyed working so closely with customers to help them find what they need and provide information about the activities i personally love. I also learned lots about the equipment required for numerous outdoor sports.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB and Red Deer, AB – 30 April 2016
Was a great place to work and loved all the people I worked with. Learned so much about all the products that were offered at the store. Management was great and was always energetic. Had so much fun selling all the different products to the customers and finding the perfect product for everyone. Hardest part was keeping track of all the new products that were coming in and knowing all the product information.
Sales associate, welcome customers and assist them (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 February 2016
On a regular day at Atmosphere you don't do much, not many customers come in the store so most of the job is standing around and waiting. You do learn a lot about the products you're selling and the outdoors which is really cool.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 2 November 2015
The hours were extremely flexible management was very understanding and reasonable one of the most enjoyable parts of the job were being able to pair the right products to the customer and seeing all the interesting things that have been designed
Full Time Sales Associate/ Key Holder (Current Employee) – winnipeg mb – 11 May 2015
This is a really flexible place to work for students on a part time basis. wages are great and the atmosphere is laid back.
As a full-time employee i usually quite enjoy my day to day stuff. I talk to as many customers as I can to make sure everything is going smoothly on the sales floor. I get to be friends with most of the staff. I oversee the footwear department which offers reprieve from the social life of the floor offering instead some peace and quiet when needed. overall, I'm very satisfied to work here, although i do have my grievences
awesome discount on gear, flexible hours, benefits for full-timers
Handling upset customers, sales pressure, long hours always on the go.
Visual Manager (Current Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 4 March 2014
overall a good place to work. Corporate office is a little bit disorganized and often times sends out communications contradicting previous communications. At a store level It is exceptional managers know their staff and communication is open. Expectations are clear and there is plenty of room for advancement.
