No breaks when you work 5 hrs and management is rude
Footwear Associate (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB26 May 2017
The new managers only schedule the people they know and ignore the ones they don't know, resulting in a large drop in hours for many existing employees. This is very hard as many people who work for FGL are students.
Pros
Discount Card
Cons
No break

It was okay
Footwear Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Greater Sudbury, ON17 April 2017
Managers could have been more professional in terms of day to day communication, very hectic people. Store is very slow which makes for long shifts. Hardest part of the job was inventory.

Bad Management but Good Friends
Head Technician (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB6 December 2016
During my time at this company I was treated with hostility and disrespect. Management makes promises they cannot keep and will tend to focus more on sales then on good employee morale.

The co-workers were good and I made good friends while here.

Overall this job was hard to cope with when it came to management and duties.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  London, ON14 November 2016
Normally would set up ads and do tasks to set up the shop floor. Sales were also required but not very difficult to do. In terms of product knowledge, if you had personal experience with the products it was a plus.

fun place to work
Cash Manager (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB29 July 2016
FGL is a fun place to work. on a given day it can be busy and the day flies by. There was a lot of drama however, making work not always the easiest or best environment. hardest part of the job was trying to keep the drama down. i mostly enjoyed making new friends.
Pros
made new friends
Cons
distance to drive from work to home, some management wasn't very professional.

Title - Sales Associate (Footwear) (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON9 May 2016
It can be very busy and overwhelming at times but the management does a good job preparing you with the knowledge and skills needed to get through day to day tasks. The hardest part is trying to balance the store operation tasking with busy customer service duties.

No real direction
Enterprise Application Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB8 May 2016
Depending on where you worked at FGL, the capacity for advancement was low. Management seemed to change every three months. Salary was low -- no incentives were ever offered.
Culture was lazy.
Pros
Too Easy
Cons
Too Easy

Productive and patience required workplace
Footwear Department Associate (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB5 April 2016
I've learned:
- how to have patience and communicate with customers whose English is their second language
- How to stay organized in a large work space
- how to prioritize
- Communicate with co-workers

Management could be more respectful of our own personal time

Hardest part of the job in having patience when there is a lack of communication or when you must handle the floor on your own.

The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting customers and being able to interact with them
Pros
Discount
Cons
Long hours
