Productive and fun place to wrok
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Pickering, OnMarch 18, 2014
Pros: discounts
Cons: too much stock at winter season
Product knowledge is everything in this store. Learned about all the products and how they work for all customers. The hardest part of the job was making sure every customer was greeted and helped with the limit of staff hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with your coworkers, they made the day.

Awesome co-workers, horrible management
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Lethbridge, ABMarch 14, 2014
Pros: great customers
Cons: terrible management
The people I worked with were awesome, and some of the regular customers were great to get to know. The company and management, however, is horrible. All of the staff I had worked with (some who have been there for 3+ years) all quit when they hired a new manager with no previous experience with managing, the company OR even clothing retail. Too much – more... blame put on the sales associates, not enough on poor managing. – less

A straightforward retail job with a great team
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Cobourg, ONFebruary 1, 2014
Marks is a great company. Their IT department really knows what it is doing, and as a result their in-house inventory and ordering systems work surprisingly well. This makes the non-standard retail part of the job quite easy, and really simplifies the task of surprising the customer and making them happy.

The team at Marks was a joy to work with. For – more... the most part there wasn't too much drama, and they were well organized and good at communicating.

That being said, Mark's is still a retail position, and as such has a host of irritating aspects. Constant standing, occasionally condescending middle management, angry customers and a fair amount of passive aggressive break time scheduling mean that some days could be quite stressful. Also, Christmas music.

Overall, I'd characterize Mark's as the best of the retail jobs. Nearly 0 responsibility outside of showing up and folding clothes, good corporate policymaking, and a great discount. It is boring, but it isn't bad. – less

I would walk the store at beginning of every day planning what needed to be done and what was completed from previous list address any urgent issues so that the store would look its best as the first customer comes in. I would complete all transfers and debits daily also receive all of previous days orders then prepare the cashes and store for opening – more... . I also was the district customer service rep therefore having meeting with store operators that were struggling with some customer service relations. During the day would take most calls coming in and would address any concerns from staff and customers. – less

A company trying to find its way
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), CanadaSeptember 28, 2013
Pros: in store staff if chosen properly can create a great work environment
Cons: pay, work hours, disorganized upper management
New management is working hard to get the stores up and running properly. With sometimes odd choices of direction and misinformation. The pay grade is not equivalent to the amount of work needed.

Loved the direction and initiatives
Store Manager (Former Employee), Canmore, ABJuly 1, 2013
Having worked for the company for so long, the bulk of my work ethics originated from the great leaders that brought this out in me at such a young age. I loved the ability to progress and move forward. Every day, even up until my last, was a learning experience. What I loved most was the great people I got to know and work with, and these people will – more... be part of my life regardless of where our future paths may lead. – less

I loved my job when I started
Visual Merchandiser/Shift Leader (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJune 5, 2013
I absolutely loved my job until my third manager started. She and the following three had zero trust for their employees. Half of the staff was fired on suspicion of stealing with no proof, the other half quit because management made them feel like they were doing something wrong. In the three years I worked there, I was the only consistent employee. – more... There were six different managers in that time and I don't even know how many employees - most did not stay more than a couple of months. Apart from all of that drama, it was fun. I loved merchandising. – less
