Great for Part-Time, Not for Full
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 17 September 2017
Boathouse has a great training program for teaching beginners the ins and outs of retail. The staff of the store are all friendly and wonderful to be around. It's a great place for high-school or college students to work.
If you're looking to work here as your main job, I would not advise it however. There is no option for advancement and there has been a few incidents of people being trained for higher positions without getting the pay to compensate. Even if you work full-time hours, you will not be considered for full-time benefits. Due to this, you do not have sick days and it is near impossible to schedule a life around work because the hours are very sporadic.
Outside of that, management is wonderful and easy to work with. It has a very laid-back feel to it and you are well-trained to play your part.
Wonderful training program
Sporadic and few hours
