Bad summary
Cashier (Former Employee), Toronto, ONSeptember 30, 2014
Management was superficial and became upset when I had tried researching on the background of the company.
Would yell at me in front of customers. Asked personal questions and provided personal information about his own self.
** Had made disrespectful made crude remarks to me and my older brother, whom he only met once **
** Had gotten district manager – more... to bully me and threatened to fire me **
I had quit a week after the meeting with the district manager. Clothes are over priced and the manager like to call security and make lie about customers stealing from the store. – less

Fun place to work but high turnover
CASHIER (Current Employee), toronto, onJanuary 9, 2014
Pros: flexible schedules
Cons: little camaraderie with coworkers
The store and company is a great place to work but don't expect to get to really know your co-workers well. People are often switched around between the different stores and while this often is for a better position it can be unsettling to know that everyone you currently work with won't be there in 4 months.

Great place to learn.,
Sales assosiate wityh key holder duties (Former Employee), Calgary, ABJanuary 4, 2014
Pros: learning, co-workers, meeting targets and goals
Cons: hours getting cut
I loved working at bench, I learned a tremendous amount and loved all my co workers. ALthough when new management took over it was unfortunate my hours got cut because of the NEW ASM and new Managewr needing 40 hours per week although the ASM fighted heavily for me to stay. I learned a lot about customer service, selling, and inventory.

Highly productive and Customer Service Oriented
Project Manager/ Design Consultant (Current Employee), Metro Manila, PhilippinesNovember 12, 2014
Pros: exposure to top-notch artists in the heart of metro manila
Cons: business concludes late nights
High expectations with rewarding results. A true test of management skills in the area of tenant improvement and protecting worker's interest during construction.

Interestingly enough, commercial retail is the heart of any country's financial backbone. Paying attention to the needs of everyone in the workforce is essential to business success. I am – more... privileged and humbled to be a team-player.

The hardest part of the job is my exposure to extreme tropical weather condition that I'm no longer used to.

Reconnecting with my former employer and a friend is the most enjoyable part of the job. Every business endeavor is exciting and rewarding. – less

A better me:)
Sales Staff (Former Employee), ManilaOctober 26, 2014
Pros: free breakfast and lunch
Cons: long hours
. Stress and pressure at work is part of the job.When you experienced it,that will be a great help for you to grow ,helps you to become a better person. In sales, you need to smile for the whole day though your feeling tired .You'll encounter a contemptous customer or customers who have bad attitude,but despite of that you need to have self-temper and – more... just calm down.But the most enjoyable part is when you get the target sales.I also enjoy having a good relationship with my boss,my co workers and most of all our customers.When you sold out the products you're selling is satisfying but what satisfies me more is when i see our customers happy and contented with our services. – less
