Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Campbellford, ON26 April 2017
This was a good job to get me by in the mean time. It was decent hours and good people to work with. My boss was very reasonable with my school hours and gave me as many hours as possible.

Friendly hardworking environment
Sales Associate Outdoor and Sporting Goods (Former Employee) –  Oshawa, ON26 April 2017
Management expects everything from everyone however do not enforce that on anyone in ways of discipline or rewarding one for excellent work ethic. Not enough employees available for work, leaves the current employees with around 40 or even more hours a week consistently, however will never give more that 45 hours so they don't have to pay overtime. When days are requested off a month or more in advanced they are not always given off. Having to deal with customers yelling at you not because you didn't do your job but because someone else didn't, if one person doesn't do their a job its very likely that a customer can lash out at you. Most enjoyable part of the job would be working the morning shift where there is no customers present and you can just focus on your job. The co-workers are friendly so that makes for a friendly work environment.
Pros
Friendly co-workers
Cons
Long hours, no chance for a raise, bad customers

productive
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB25 April 2017
It was my very 1st job and I found that the training and orientation is thorough. I worked as a cashier and i found that the hardest part about the job is the "dead" times; its when there are little to no customers and you just stand around and hopefully find something to keep you busy.

Good working environment with friendly staff
Manager (Former Employee) –  Essex, ON24 April 2017
Overall the experience was good. Very friendly and easy going staff that genuinely cares about their performance. Limited upward movement simply because of the small store size and location, you would likely have to transfer to a larger store.

Everyone get along quite well. The hardest part of the job is maintaining the work load with a limited number of staff. The most enjoyable part of the job, however, is succeeding regardless.

Please do keep in mind this review is for one single store across a country with hundreds.
Pros
Free lunch provided on red weekends
Cons
Slightly understaffed

There was much to learn at this job, with a comprehensive online learning program designed to teach the employee many useful skills that helped them to excel in the workplace. Lots of incentive to do good work, and management generally notices rising stars and promotes employees accordingly.
