co-workers made the work experience so much better.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 31 May 2016
If you are not familiar with the retail environment, this place might be difficult for you to work with. They never gives you any kind of training and never tell you what rules do they have. All the skills and information are conveyed from your co-workers. Since there are no rules that clearly given, every associate might have different views of the system that works in the company.
The management in The Bay is definitely a weakness. They do not give out a clearly rules and guidelines. They never have a regular schedule, every week is different (that's mean you can't plan a social activity until you know your schedule).
In my department we have base salary + commission, which has pros and cons.
Pros: On a busy day you might earn $15-$20+/hr.
Cons: If you didn't meet your target, you will be in deficit. Thats mean you owe company's money, and you have to make it up later.
The best thing about this company is they have great associates, everyone is supper helpful and respect each other. It is a very fun workplace.
nice co-workers, commission
management, unstable schedule.
