Amazing Place to Work if You Really like to Organize
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Current Employee), St. Catharines, ONApril 1, 2015
A typical day at work usually involves receiving shipments, putting inventory out on the floor, and maintaining and organizing displays and merchandise. My co-workers were fun to work with, and could always – more... make me smile, my managers were amazing as they were strict, but fair and friendly. I learned about managing tills and the importance of filling out the paperwork correctly every time. I really like to organize things and set up displays, so this job allowed me to do what I liked doing, but in a work setting. The hardest part of the job was when a big shipment comes in on an unexpectedly busy day. We always try to work our hardest, do our best, and co-operate, regardless of how difficult a task is, so somehow we always manage to get through the rough parts of the job. – less

Fast passed at fuel desk ,,,quiet while doing the books
STORE MANAGER (STORE CLOSURE) (Former Employee), calgary abFebruary 5, 2015
Pros: lots of interaction with people and always free coffee
Cons: when the company sold
I started at Flying J as a cashier , after the accounting manager left without notice I offered to help even though I had zero experience with book keeping , I found the people at head office very helpful – more... . They basically spent 3 days teaching me over the phone .However when pilot took over I was asked to step down after 1 year of doing the books so they could bring in somebody with actual training .
Overall I loved the challenge and the people I worked with , My favorite part of the job was seeing customers come from all over the world . – less

Great place to work with wonderful staff memebers
Sales representative (Former Employee), Kamloops, BCSeptember 1, 2014
Normally I would be working alone managing the till and restocking cards and other merchandise. Once it was time to close the store I cleaned, did computer work and dealt with the money by counting, making – more... the deposit and dropping in the safe.

I really enjoyed being able to have conversations with the costumers and help them find what they needed. Hardest part was making sure you have the store closed within 15 minutes. – less

Physically demanding, most workers work straight thru to finish their Projects without taking Breaks even if they do work longer than 4 hours
Retail Merchandiser (Former Employee), GTAJuly 24, 2014
Cons: a huge amount of emails each day
Basically you walk in to the Retailer, do your Merchandising Task, then leave the retailer. Some of these Merchandising Projects do take longer than 4 hours, however; very often other Team Members will not take any breaks during the 4 hour period just so that they can be done the Task and out the door!

Opportunities for improvement
Keyholder (Current Employee), Burnaby, BCMay 4, 2014
Pros: flexible hours where possible
Cons: breaks are not regular, shifts are not regular unless they are inconvenient(ie regularly late nights and weekends), no job advancement, no pay raises, no one to cover on sick days, understaffed without likely hood of hiring extra employees, sudden hour cuts, lack of communication, lack of training
A typical day begins with me either opening store or coming in during lunch hour, usually moving stock from one area of the store to another to make space due to receiving excess stock as it must always go out on the floor straight away. Organizing and disorganizing cards, helping customers find what they are looking for, and closing the store as quickly as possible at the end of the day.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABDecember 3, 2013
Pros: fun place, good people, good environment
Cons: closing of the store
Athlete's World was a fun place to be. It was a pretty busy and popular store when it was still open. Alot of people my age shopped there so it was nice to see people you'd know or meet new people. the hourly wage was a bit over minimum so I couldn't complain. Co workers were the best! Boss was the nicest.
