Sales Associate - Retail (Current Employee), Regina, SKJanuary 6, 2016
Pros: Friendly colleagues
Cons: Low pay compared to other departmental stores
The Hudson's Bay is a great place to work especially as a student with requirements of rotational shifts as the managers are very friendly and reliable in providing the sufficient amount of hours to suit your needs. Working at The Bay you can expect to be a part of a very fast paced environment especially during the holiday season which has it's own benefits. If helping customers in various departments of the store is something that may interest an individual, I definitely suggest taking the steps to becoming an employee of the team.

Fun but inconsistant
warehouse worker (Current Employee), Toronto, ONDecember 22, 2015
Pros: Paid breaks
Cons: Long hours, sore feet, walk 8-10 hours a shift
They listed the job position as full time but there would be many time during the day where we would get sent home early making it hard to pay bills when they had you scheduled as a full time employee then send you home after 3-4 hours most days. Very nerve racking arriving at a shift, not knowing whether you were going to be there for the full time or not.

Fun work place, employees are nice and very easy to work with. Not all about sales and numbers, managers take the time to help train and encourage employees.
Excellent training program, and an overall enjoyable work experience

A Once Great Company
Rewards Administrator/Operator (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONNovember 16, 2015
Pros: Friendly and supportive co-workers
Cons: Abusive, underhanded, deceitful management
After mismanagement following the huge recession of the 1980s HBC has changed ownership too many times and lost it's company culture. Management is abusive, will yell at staff right out on the sales floor, in front of customers, over things that are out of the sales associate's control. Wages are poor, merchandise does not warrant the high prices. God forbid if one of the local locations shuts down, upper management will do everything they can to squeeze you out so they can hire their friends from the closing store, including reducing your hours and lying about your job performance so they can fire you. I spent too many years watching excellent people being treated like dirt, being brought to tears on the sales floor, and lied about by management that I'd have anxiety attacks before I left for work each morning, before I realized I had Stockholm Syndrome, shook myself alert, and quit that hive of scum and villainy. HBC is only worth your time and dignity if you're looking for temporary seasonal work for Christmas.

Days were always good as co-workers were all friendly. Hardest part of the job was when they moved me to night shift. Working with friendly people made the job much easier.

A mix of busy and dead hours that will leave you exhausted, both mentally and physically
sales associate (Former Employee), Calgary,ABOctober 20, 2015
Pros: Long breaks
Cons: long hours that should feel shorter then they are
Because I had not been trained, I was not trained to be the cashier and hence most of my job would consist of organizing clothing and opening the change rooms for customers.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Vernon, BCOctober 20, 2015
I enjoyed having a good laugh with co-workers or customers. Providing them with services to better help them in their searches for things in the store as well as returning things that just may not of worked out for the customer at the time.

assisting people
sales associate (Former Employee), Toronto onOctober 10, 2015
Pros: 50% of Merchandise
Cons: Not enough hours
I loved working with all my employees, everyone was nice and understanding.
I did not like the fact it was very hard to switch shifts when in need of an emergency.
It was uncomfortable knowing the sales associates were not entitled to sick shifts

Holiday Helper (Former Employee), North York, ONOctober 5, 2015
As a holiday helper, the job responsibilities were small. It is expected that you keep the store neat and tidy, and help customers with the best of your abilities.
