Pros: Great People to Work With
Cons: Quite a bit of construction to work around at the time
HBC, Is one of Canada's historically reputable companies that dates back to the 17th century. Along with most of my associates, I took great pride in coming to work at this company that I had known since my early childhood. The environment was very fast-paced and conducive towards surpass sales expectations. Going to work at the Queen and Bay store meant seeing young and old alike marvel at some of the Christmas displays. HBC has traditions and they are evident both throughout the store and instilled in its workforce. My sales associates would temper selling with humour.
I enjoyed this retail environment more than any other because, in my department, we had the right mix of people that were equally motivated to sell a prestigious brand (Ralph Lauren) as they were positive.
