A Good first job, but not a job to stay at for long
Sales/Fits Associate & Cashier (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 4 October 2013
Usually since the store was low on hours to give out I would start my day at 10am being the only one in the fitting room and sometimes the whole back of the store. My day would end at 6 and I would be very exhausted and angry because of the very low help that I receive from the store and management. I learned the acronym and it has helped me get a new jobs. Management was good to me, however, if they did pick favourites and if you were not one of them expect your hours to be one shift a week which is usually a closing. Co-workers were amazing, I created long-term friendships with most. Hardest part is learning the floor set, especially if you do not work as often to memorize it and the most enjoyable part was meeting nice people.
Demoralizing place to work. Some coworkers slack off and take extra breaks, call in sick 2 hours before their shift when they want and i dont blame them. Discount is a joke (10% and not applied on discounted items) Management is unprofessional and have unrealistic in their goals (the store is understaffed 70% of the time) Managers always breathing down ur neck about customer service but wont lift a finger to help do so or help clean the store. I have been working here for over 2 years and recieved only one 22 cents raise to my salary only for it to be removed once they raised min wage again.
Coworkers are friendly and understand the pain of working there
Low salary, horrible discount, little advancement, always understaffed
