Opening stores from inception, employee engagement, customer engagment, leadership development
General Manager (Former Employee) – Vernon, B.C. , Calgary A.B. – 14 January 2014
Opening stores from inception and creating a customer focused environment to ensure the highest level of satisfaction from the client and the associate alike. Planning and organizing two general staff meetings a day has helped me to become an effective public speaker who is able to use multiple techniques to keep my audience attentive. Running all aspects of the store operation and responsible for sales exceeding 50 million per year has helped me to learn multiple ways to develop leaders and associates alike and help them find the right fit for themselves. The passion I have for my career shows in the results of engagement, profit and development of the people i work with as well as myself.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – St. Albert, AB – 17 October 2017
Future shop has since migrated to best buy but I did experience problems with management. The culture was prone to favouritism and I often felt that I was not recognized properly for my contribution. The pay was decent since it was commission based if you worked hard.
Multiple Positions (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 October 2017
Good place to work but they are closed now. If you hustled you made money, if you didnt, you were pretty much fired. the company didnt want to pay employees minimum wage. they wanted employees to be on commission because it meant they were making money for the company.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 August 2017
I worked at the Future Shop as Sales Associate which was a great experience. This job provided me with ample experience in addressing the customers' needs and concerns. I always enjoyed to go above and beyond to let the customers leave our store fully satisfied.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Saint John, NB – 14 August 2017
Job and life does not have any balance. Salary is basic and health benefits were good. No job advancement or job security even if promised by management. Management lacked in commitment to employees. Job culture did not seem to exist as everyone was only looking out for themselves and no team support.
Product Expert (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 7 August 2017
This company is closed now. However, at the time was fun and appealing store for customers whom seek professional advise from expert sales persons. The staff were well knowledgeable about electronics and their products as well as the market and other competitions. Their world class customer service can't be seen any where else after....
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Medicine Hat, AB – 31 July 2017
As a merchandiser, you needed to know where everything was in the store so that you could stock it all up. You also needed to be in the back to unload the truck deliveries and load truck deliveries for appliances. Overall, it was fun. Some of the supervisors were bad to be around, they would be attacking verbally, but overall, you do your job and you fit in well.
