In between job kind of job
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJune 19, 2015
Pros: Break times were okay
Cons: Too many
I didn't enjoy the sales goals and the commission. They had way too many high expectations, which would lead to never achieving your commission. The people were okay, but the management was too political,

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 – more... 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 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.

Keyholder and Assistant Management (Former Employee), Thornhill ,OntarioApril 23, 2013
Pros: contests, paid lunches from me
Cons: contests were bias
We were paid a commission that helped to establish a competitive environment, this also made for a drama filled situation. It was my job to help make people the best they could be and to drive in business

high energy, fast pace store
Sales Associate (Former Employee), yorkdale mallSeptember 21, 2012
Pros: two articles of clothing to start
Cons: not enough hours
replenish stock,count tils, relenish stock, sell sell sell
management did teach alot to do with loss prevention, sales targets, selling techniques. co-workers were good in the beginning because we were all extremely competitive. Hardest part of the job was receiving hours, the most enjoyable part was hitting sales targets as well as making customers happy.
