Assembler (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 16 February 2018
The only way this company can make any money is that they are a government regulated monopoly even then their is still a lot of inefficiency. Hours can be unpredictable and they expect you to have constant availability even if they give you no work for a month. The job is also monotonous and boring so overall I wouldn't say it's a life you want to live.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 23 January 2017
Great people, customers. Love the job itself but being on call for the first few years is tough. Everyone starts out as Auxillary and it can take years to become permanent. It's great for those with supplement income ie: spouse, living at home. But for a single person it's tough.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Maple Ridge, BC – 28 September 2016
Cashiering, asking for ID from younger looking customers, bagging purchases, stocking shelves. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. Most enjoyable was working with the public and friendly staff. Hardest part of the job was one drunk guy who came in waving a broken bottle around asking for a refund.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 27 September 2016
Managers base your performance reviews based on how well and much you suck up to them. Extremely lazy mgmt, no advancement opportunities. Good employees are not valued, do not expect to come in and wow anyone. Management is jaded are at the forefront of gossipmongering and violating human rights.
Xmas potluck, one day off every 3 weeks
No opportunity for advancement, flawed management, lack of integrity, corrupt, requests are completed based on if you're liked, competency, efficiency and intiative is punished.
Work Practicum Student (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 22 October 2014
I was there for about two weeks for my work practicum. I can only comment that the staff were absolutely friendly and gave me a wide variety of tasks to do in order to put my office administration skills to use.
Relief as a supervisor and product consultant (Former Employee) – Abbotsford – 28 May 2014
Typical day would be unloading liqour load in the warehouse. Learned how to recommend the right wine to customers. Learned how to do schedules and payroll. Learned how to order products. Learned how to cash out a till. Our management team seems to change a lot, but they were all good managers. My co-workers were easy to get along with, a fun enviroment to work in. We are always having fun while working. The hardest part of my job was dealing with intoxicated customers. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with great co-workers.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 30 October 2013
An office environment consisting of employees who work together cohesively to reach their goals. As with any workplace, there are some communication problems between staff and middle to higher management which is probably due to policital agendas.
Not receiving recognition or appropriate pay for the work accomplished. Interaction among co-workers who have the same goals is the most enjoyable part of my job.
