Sales associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 28 April 2017
The management were quite friendly and were willing to teach the new hires on how to sell items. The day was a lax, as not many people come to the store, though there were a few people coming in to browse. The hardest part was to wait until some people came over to check the store's goods.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 20 March 2017
Minimum wage, very flexible, management and staff quite young. Could use more mature management. Overall a good part-time job for those who wish to work very minimal hours, not a good job for those who need to make a living.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Greater Sudbury, ON – 16 March 2017
I was offered a management position after a co-manager resigned. I verbally took the job. The next day I walked in and was told that since the co-manager changed his mind the job was no longer available to me

This store really does do a good job of promoting youth culture. The environment is friendly and you are allowed to wear what you want. Management was a bit disorganized at times, however I loved working here regardless.
Co Manager (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 1 February 2017
Got promoted to an assistant manager position, but instead of a raise from going from part-time to assistant I was put on commission with a base pay of $150 a week. Working on commission while having to perform manager duties makes for small paychecks equal to working less than minimum wage more than half the time. Other than that the company is good.
Co-Manager/Manager in Training (Current Employee) – Burlington, ON – 23 January 2017
Journeys is a wonderful company to work for at store level, if you're interested in short-term work. There is definitely room for advancement within the company, if you show the initiative. There are also great perks (including 40% discount, free shoes during the year for managers and co-managers, sales contests, etc.). However, for co-managers and managers, pay scale is almost completely commission based, making certain times during the year more difficult than others to make decent wages. If you have the drive to succeed, you will be rewarded.
Free shoes, great discount, work community is wonderful
Commision-based, making it difficult for consistent pay at certain times of year
Sales Associate and Customer Service (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 September 2016
It is a very good environment, good people to work with, fun place to be. It feels like home and big family. i learned a lot about sales, and team work. Management was a little bit harsh. co workers are friendly and supportive. hardest part is re arranging the shoes. most good part is fun time.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Burlington, ON – 16 August 2016
I've only worked at Journey's for a few weeks now and I adore this job. i get 40% off as an employee discount and management has been nothing short of amazing, they've helped me learn everything really quickly and never have an issue helping me find something in the back or assisting me with anything else I ask about they are truly some of the best employers I've ever had
40% discount on things, fantastic management, great atmosphere
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 August 2016
Everyday was not only fun and exciting. But it helped you gain confidence in being your true self. No one judged you and nobody didn't go against you. It was focused on a lot on team building because everyone got along.
