Super chill, very fun
Cashier (Former Employee), Toronto, ONFebruary 3, 2013
Pros: music, fashion, people
Cons: long hours, not enough hours
Typical day at work was very fun, even when tasking. Learned to sharpen my folding skills as well as take things lightly when it came to criticisms. Management was great! So were the co-workers! Hardest part of the job I think would be keeping up with ALL the denim. Most enjoyable part was good music, good people, fun customers.

Pros: we had a great team
I enjoyed every moment, up until the new manager took over, which wasnt til late in my employment there. She was unfair and didnt care much about her employees.

Regular Retail Life
Team Lead (Former Employee), Mississauga, Ontario, CanadaNovember 5, 2012
Pros: there are certain incentives for store managers
Cons: does not give raises unless you are promoted
Bluenotes is like a typical retail store. You are required to arrive at least 15 minutes before your shift; you may only receive a half hour lunch break if you are working over 5 hours; and not allowed 15 minute breaks. It is a very customer service oriented environment and an employee must be able to multi-task. As a sales person you are expected to – more... greet and assist customers, promote sales, recognize and replenish the merchandise and know how to operate cash.
In a management position, much more is required.
The hardest part of the job was the commute, which was two hours to get there and two hours back. The best part was visual marketing and customer service. – less

Dont work there unless youre desperate
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Toronto, ONSeptember 29, 2012
Pros: discounts on all ym inc stores
Cons: lazy and rude managers
Managers and rude and lazy. They don't do any thing accept point out what you did wrong or tell you to do this and that. They don't tell you did good when you do.
The only good thing about working there is you get discounts to bluenotes and other stores owned by ym inc (sirens, urban planet, Suzy shier,stitches etc)

A good company to gain experience in the retail sector in a friendly and fast-paced environment
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Brampton, ONMay 1, 2012
Pros: friendly environment, good store location
Cons: not enough hours, frequent change in staff, work can be repetitive
The work environment is very fast-paced as many customers shop at this store. There are promotional sales which need to be advertised so that potential customers can take advantage of these opportunities. By providing good customer service and approaching each customer, the opportunity of increasing sales greatly improves thereby allowing the store – more... to achieve its sales goals. Management is supportive in providing constructive feedback in an attempt to recognize employee achievements or advise where improvements are needed. Workers are friendly and are always supportive when a co-worker is in need of assistance. There is some repetitive work involved, especially on days when new shipments arrive and the product needs to be placed on display. The most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction of helping clients in selecting their merchandise and the thanks received upon the completion of the transaction. – less

Busy workplace
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Greater Sudbury, ONMarch 12, 2012
Bluenotes is a pretty busy workplace during the weekend, but during the week, there are long periods without any customers. However, there is always something to be done. It helps to make the shift go by faster.
