Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 18 April 2017
Lots of interactions with customers. You learn how to talk and help customers in a rightful manner. I've learned that its easier to get along with coworkers and if you give them the treatment that you want back.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 11 April 2017
In the interview process I explained to her I would need to take a week off to visit my grandparents however after being hired and reminding her off this she threatened my job telling me if I go I either need to seek approval from the regional manager or quit. Ultimately I did not like receiving ultimatums.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 30 March 2017
Management does not care about employees, staff is over worked under paid and expected to hit unrealistic bench marks. They hassle about LP conditions but do not offer cameras and security gate maintenance when asked for.
Manager (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 20 February 2017
Absolutely worst company to work for, they show no appreciation and have all the wrong people in the wrong positions. They treat there staff horribly and get away with it. It has the highest turnover rate I have ever seen in a retail company before. I do NOT reccomend working for this company.
It was a good experience for a first part-time job
Part-time sales (Former Employee) – Rocky View, AB – 31 January 2017
Overall it was a nice place to work, getting to communicate with customers, and help them out, also giving responsibility within the store. At the time I was working the management wasn't the best, resulting in personal/mental issues in the management of that store. I learned so much working there being able to use some of what I learned in my day-to-day life, for example communicating with strangers, and working as a team on the floor. But all in all I loved working there and most of the staff was great to work with.

Great place with a great staff. Can become monotonous but that is the same for any retail job. You must require a good attitude, and needs to be hard-working. I think that it is a good place for a first job, because, they set you goals and you must achieve these goals. this can help later in life. Would highly recommend.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Airdrie, AB – 31 July 2016
Boathouse is a great and friendly workplace that teaches you much about the skills needed to become a sales associate. The people i work with are very friendly, and the management is awesome. the hardest part of the job would be the constant cleaning of the merchandise we sell at boathouse. I very much do enjoy making conversation with customers.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 18 July 2016
Some of my co workers were friendly, but managment was unhelpful when it came to issues in the workplace. I really enjoyed the amount of customer engament, and getting fashion tips from customers and coworkers.
Part-time Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 May 2016
Boathouse is an upbeat and hip clothing store with lots of great discounts and promotions on branded merchandise. Although I am working in a busy store with fast paced environment, I feel that I have reached my peak with this company and that my skills can be applied more efficiently elsewhere.
Sales Clerk (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 25 May 2016
very much an in out job, go to work come home. morning stock shifts are great to avoid gossip or store drama. i find a lot of management isn't very equipped to understand there positions and lack compassion. Quality employees with wonderful skill sets are often over looked. (not at all a personal response, completely observation of operations) I generally love working with public! but not so much in this environment. i learned a lot about stalking and visual hear spent a lot of my time learning organizational skills and presentation.
Sales Associate and Key Holder (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 May 2016
The time I spent working at Boathouse was awesome. Great people and culture. It was a great place for a part-time position while a full-time student. I learned a lot working with the people there and built great relationships. The disorganization was prominent throughout the company, from simple things such as scheduling to things like floor set or markdowns.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Owen Sound, ON – 19 April 2016
Honestly i loved working at Boathouse at the beginning, but now i off and on don't enjoy working there due to drama between 2 other co-workers. I try to avoid drama at all cost but they tried to drag me into the drama and hate what i get stuck in the middle.
