Great way to develop time management skills and to handle stress
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 4, 2016
A typical day at work is generally very busy. Customer service is expected to be of highest quality, along with putting away new stock, ordering out-of-stock items, organizing respective departments, etc. This job definitely helps with prioritizing all the work that needs to be done. It also helps quite a bit with one's ability to handle stress. The hardest part of the job was holiday hours, while customers must be taken care of and the department must be kept in order. The most enjoyable part of the job were the co-workers.

Enjoyable short-term employment
Merchandizing Team Member and Filler (Former Employee), St. Catharines, ONMay 3, 2016
Pros: Excellent work environment, very responsive and involved management
Cons: Minimum wage, occasionally phisically taxing work
This job was pretty much exactly what you might expect: low-wages and insufficient hours, partially offset by good management and work environment, with practically no major interpersonal issues between employees or management.

This was the best place I ever worked at. The training was well paced. They made sure you succeed. The ensure you are comfortable in your position by asking for feed back from you.
They schedule one on one meetings to discuss any issues you may have.

Cashier (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABMay 2, 2016
Pros: Great Company to work for
Cons: Standing for long periods
A typical day at work as a cashier would entail working with the public and processing services to customers. Working the till and learning how to do cash and credit card interactions. I learned a lot working this job, working well with others, customer relations, working under pressure and standing for long periods. The most enjoyable part of my day was when customers complemented me on my performance and left the store with a smile.

Fun place to work
Sales Representative (Current Employee), Toronto, ONMay 1, 2016
Fun place to work, but pay is only commission based and too much working hours.

Always end up working more to earn enough. Hardest job is selling people credit cards, when they already have 5-6 credit cards from their bank

A good place to work at during school. Learned a lot about the sports departments and products within sports. Coworkers were amazing people, all kind.

Regret applying for this job
Shop labourer (Former Employee), Richmond, BCApril 27, 2016
Pros: Learned basic things about cars
Cons: Poor training, management doesn't really care
I didn't like the job overall because of the lack of training that they provided. I always felt pressure to be able to know everything with very minimal training. I couldn't give customers any feedback on products or assist them in finding a product because of the lack of training that was provided.

A good learning environment that should be viewed as such and not a permanent employment
Service Installer (Former Employee), Cambridge, ONApril 26, 2016
Pros: Lunch hour (un-paid), good hours, lots to learn.
Cons: No advancement, distant management.
The hours were well varied giving you a good amount of free time. The position offers you a good opportunity to learn about the automotive industry with friendly coworkers. The relationship with management is a little lacking for service installers, but the void is filled by the mechanics who are helpful and friendly. Advancement requires education so unless you get offered an apprenticeship position, your pay and your position will not change. At the end of the day it is what you sign up for, a minimum wage part time job that should be seen as a learning opportunity to progress you on your path to the career you desire.
