Good sales staff, Terrible management.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 14 July 2017
Currently a PT employee. Hours are acceptable though never secured as management constantly wants to hire more employees to reduce hours.
There is a looming feeling that no matter how much you push sales or even how good a job you do, one slip-up or a bad week could result in termination. Meanwhile, there is very little incentive or reward for going above and beyond.
Compensation is minimum wage no questions asked, but employees are forced to sell as if they are on commission. Most customers don't appreciate it.
At the store level culture is great, co-workers (and I've seen many come and go) are always super friendly.
The product quality isn't great unless it's the highest priced in the store. Selling even a moderately priced handbag is tricky when customers know the product is sub-par.
All-in-all an okay place to make a little extra money... definitely not a solid career choice.
Great employee discount
