The Bay
Holiday helper (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONJuly 12, 2014
The Bay was an enjoyable environment to work in. There were no cons on this job. The co-workers were really friendly and excited to be around. A typical day at work will be to help customers to find what they're looking for. this includes, clothing shoes etc. I've learned a lot from working at the bay including teamwork. Teamwork was a major factor – more... in the Bay. Working with other co-workers made it a more friendly environment. – less

Great Place to Work!
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONMay 19, 2014
Pros: awesome management, work/life balance, co-workers
Cons: wages, raises, advancement, benefits
Expectations are high but easy to maintain as you mostly just have to follow a script. They are very reasonable with giving time off when needed. The pay is minimum wage unless you are coming in with experience from else where. When it comes to getting a raise you will be lucky to 25 cents/year. Benefits are horrible/non-existent for part-time employees – more... and only really benefit employees that have been grandfathered into their roles. There is no such thing as full-time just full-time flex, which means you can work from around 28 hours and up. Co-workers are great and you really get to know everyone you work with and make good friends. The management is great and keep improving as of recently. Overall one of the best places I've worked by comparison. – less

Great place to work
Regional Food Service manager (Former Employee), Bedford, NSAugust 27, 2013
Pros: great benefits
Cons: driving in the winter time
This was your typical retail Company, whom I worked for 33 years, they were fair, compassionate, always looked within to advance.
A typical day was to be on the road visiting restaurants within the stores for follow up on programs. I learned to work with people
of different personalities. My co-workers were hard working people who gave a lot of themselves – more... to the Company.
The hardest part of my job was having to let someone go.
The best part of my job was the people – less

Shipper/Receiver (Former Employee), Surrey, BCApril 25, 2013
a typical day would include unloading merchandise from trailers, prepping the merchandise for the sales floor. receiving deliveries throughout the day from couriers, assisting customers, wrapping furniture, prepping customer deliveries and outbound items for the warehouse. I learned the ins and outs of the retail industry and adapted a very strong work – more... ethic which got noticed by management and co-workers. the hardest part of the job was trying to get the most work done in the time given, I'd challenge myself on this everytime and succeed. the most enjoyable part of the job was the work itself and the people around me. – less

Fun envoriment with people you get along with.
Beauty Consultant (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABApril 17, 2013
Pros: 30min breaks were paid. incentives were given if we reached our goal
Cons: scheduling was changed too often. breaks were assigned.
Learned about new products and how they work with different skin types.
Management was very firm with meeting weekly goals, they helped come up with new up sell techniques.
My co-workers all worked as a team with unity.
The thing I found hard was to come up with different ways to meet the target, even after up selling. I found the goals were set too – more... high for the counter.
I enjoy learning, and meeting new people, I am a people person, very outgoing. I met lots of new people working with Clinique, build relationships with costomers. – less

Wouldn't wish this job on my worst enemy
Footwear Fashionista (Current Employee), Victoria BCApril 8, 2013
While the Bay might be an iconic canadian company, don't go to work for it. It has a very poor corporate culture, and ethics. Be prepared for substantial verbal abuse from customers on a regular basis, with no support for the associate from management. Expect poor hours of work, pay, and heavy cuts backs in scheduling which leave you unable to perform – more... your job in an efficient manner. Raises are non-existent, but if your full time the benefits are good.

If you do decide to work for the Bay,and are lucky enough to be in a store with a union, do yourself a favour and join it. – less
