Sales Floor Leader (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 27 February 2018
You just show up. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. There's no deviation, that's your job. That's what they pay you to do, that's all you should be doing. There's no room for questions, you know what to do.
Able to balance school and work efficiently, freedom to be creative
Sales Associate and Key Holder (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 27 February 2018
I was able to be creative and use my visual and spacial skills when rearranging the clothes around the store to make the more expensive and popular items attractive to customers as soon as they walk in the store. I was also given a sense of authority because I got to schedule sales associates, complete end reports, and close the store.
1st Key-holder (Current Employee) – Charlottetown, PE – 9 August 2017
Staff at this location struggle to get more hours due to Store manager NOT working full time hours. Great if your a student or just want to pickup a few hours for extra money on the side. Not for someone trying to support self or children.
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Lindsay, ON – 7 June 2017
I started working for Fairweather as a Temporary person as the assistant manager was out on Mat Leave. Now I work every Sunday and Tuesday morning. Sunday I open the store for 11am to 4pm, I work alone all the time. Tuesday I open the store at 9:30am and work until 2:30pm. I assist customers with the clothing and any questions they have. I keep racks in order and clean.
Fun place to work for especially you get to wear the clothes
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 25 January 2016
A typical day at work, was getting emails from the head of the company and finding out the budget for the day. Co-workers were fun, my store manager at the time was a great help, teaching me tasks while she was away. The hardest part was store equipment not up to safety standards.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 27 May 2015
usually busy and hectic learned interpersonal skills and how to deal with customers co-workers were mostly easy to get along with odd scheduling and small number of employees sometimes made it difficult to work on busy days setting up displays was the most enjoyable part
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 April 2015
Low wages but easy work. Hard to find employees who will work for minimum wage and stay with the company. Can be fun if you are working with a good team. Great experience for those who want to learn more but little reward.
Can learn everything there is to know about retail.
Not much help from DM or head office. Small amount of hours given to accomplish a lot of work.
Sales (Current Employee) – mississauga, ON – 15 March 2015
My day at fair weather would start by arriving 15 min. early , putting my stuff in the back and clocking in. After clocking I would then check the clip broad to check our goals for the day and who does what at closing (i.e- mirrors, floors, bathroom) everyone on that shift would have to clean the racks and tables for the following day. During my shift I would clean racks and tables while greeting customers and making sales including being on cash. At the end of my shift I would do my assigned job and every now then my manager or the keyholder would show me how to close till. Also this year I was put in to do inventory.
