No breaks when you work 5 hrs and management is rude
Footwear Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 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.
Great people to work with. Immature process make it difficult. Barriers between groups are evident.

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.

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.
made new friends
distance to drive from work to home, some management wasn't very professional.
overall a good place to work and build customer service as well as sales skills
Title - Sales Associate (Footwear) (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 9 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.
Footwear Department Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 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
