? I was just left wondering.
Cashier, stocking, greeter, demos (Former Employee), Stoney Creek, ONJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: most of the people where great to work with.
Cons: just left wondering why.
I loved working with the people, and I worked a great deal, but found the manager of the store unwilling to face us and to let us know who would be staying as a permanent worker in the store. I did not know until it was the end of my last shift that I was not, but I was much appreciated, and maybe they would be calling me back, maybe the assistant manger said.

Great environment and good vibes
Sales Associate (Seasonal) (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJanuary 6, 2015
Pros: staff party, good pay, great staff
Cons: confusion and often overstocked items
Kitchen Stuff Plus was a great place to work at, great co-workers and environment. I enjoyed helping customers and looking forward to work each day. The most enjoyable thing I liked about working there was seeing who needed help on the floor, restocking and keeping the visual displays, eye-popping and just enjoying lunch with the people you love working with. The management tried their very best to keep the customers and their employees happy, was always approachable and cool to talk and joke around with. But when it's time to work everyone got serious. Hardest thing about working at KSP was handling many customers at a time even when nobody was available on the floor. Overall, KSP was a fun place to work at. I had my ups and downs.

Friendly environment focused on customer service and retail
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 4, 2014
Pros: discounts for employees and scheduled breaks
Cons: inconsistent schedule
Healthy environment that had lots of inventory, changing monthly with the store set up and products, made it interesting and challenging to work there. You have scheduled breaks and are encouraged to help the customers rather than focus only on stocking. Working with ladders and lifting heavy objects may be quite physically demanding.

Retailer in Canada
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Toronto, ONAugust 12, 2014
Pros: discounts
Cons: must work christmas day.
This job was a good entry for me into Toronto when I moved.

As an Assistant Manager there were many tasks to take care of and responsibility to hold! My feeling is that this company focuses more on its small beginning then its potential growth.

In the time I was there Kitchen Stuff Plus opened 4 new locations and closed 3 old ones. This company gave me the impression of growth but fell short.

I made a choice to move on, and take a role where I could use my natural skills to more benefit my life.

Kitchen Stuff Plus is a good working environment that has many challenges. The people there are what make it however since being a smaller company, it is difficult for advancement.

Shipper/Receiver (Current Employee), Toronto, ONMay 30, 2014
the typical work at Kitchen Stuff is being ok is almost continuous and busy

I learned everything there, like for example:
*How to receive Purchase Orders (Domestic or Container) step-by-step procedures
*How to Checked and Shipped Transfer Orders by Store Numbers
*how also to order and Picked Store Transfers

*the most enjoyable part of the job is the receiving Purchase Orders, because i learned a lot and it's not boring to do

Organized, productive, and friendly work environment
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee), Orfus Rd, Toronto, ONApril 2, 2014
Pros: friendly staff and management
A typical day at work involved a fast-paced mixture of facing, cleaning, restocking, and aiding in customer requests.

I learned a lot about the store history, working in a retail environment, how to go out of my way to help customers and make them happy.

My coworkers were a joy to be around. They were always cheerful, friendly, and there was always someone in the break room to share a laugh or two with to relax during break from a busy work environment.

I thoroughly enjoyed interacting with customers and helping them find what they needed. Seeing the smiles on their faces when they received the item that they needed was rewarding. I also enjoyed talking to my managers and coworkers about interesting topics that we shared in common. It made the work environment feel less like a work environment and made me feel more at home.

CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee), Etobicoke, OntarioFebruary 1, 2014
Pros: great discount, easy to get used to, great coworkers
Cons: angry manager, minimum wage, lots of product to know
A typical day at Kitchen Stuff Pus consists of me processing customer transactions at cash, Blocking, Stiping my section of the store so it looks nice, stocking the shelf's and lastly helping customers. I learned much more about kitchen,home and bath items. The management for majority of the time was very solid. The head manager had the occasional anger issue but he was otherwise a pretty great manager. My coworkers for the most part were awesome and I am still to this day friends with some of them. The hardest part of my job was definitly putting the occasional furniture that the customer requested. I am not the greatest at building things so I found that aspect the most difficult. The most enjoyable part of my job was to interact with customers and make them happy.

Small retail chain with focus on devoloping staff from within.
Director of Receiving - Operations Management (Former Employee), TorontoNovember 28, 2013
Pros: constant project management kept me energized.
Cons: long hours, weekends.
I covered all the stores in the GTA, spent my time working with Managers on their daily routines, projects and troubleshooting. I learned to be responsible for a team of Managers and keep them focused on their objectives. I learned to budget and plan through each month the product required at the stores, the labour costs, and the supply chain management through the distribuition centre. The hardest part of the job was delivering results amidst competing priorities, ie; Xmas rush meant higher quantities being delivered to the stores, vs. Setup for large pre-Xmas warehouse sales. The most enjoyable part of the job was coaching Managers and assisting them in dealing with the daily obstacles, teaching them to improve their abilities.
