Sales Associate (Former Employee), Woodstock, ONAugust 11, 2015
Pros: Very friendly environment, good organization, emphasis on excellent customer satisfaction
Cons: Always seemed to be understaffed, but it was nothing we couldn't handle
Working at Mark's was awesome. Not only was the Mark's team great and fun to work with, but the management was excellent and everything was always very organized. There was something new to learn every day, even with employees who have been there since the very beginning. Never a dull moment!

organized and driven group of people.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Sherwood Park, ABJuly 31, 2015
Mark's grew me in a way I had not expected when I first walked in. I came in thinking it was just another job. And it was a job but I learned things I had no idea I was going to learn. Most of the things I had learned that shocked me were mostly from customers too! working at Mark's grew my patience and my willingness to be humble in a stressful situation.

What it's like Working at Mark's
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), Newmarket, ONApril 30, 2015
Pros: Great colleagues/staff, good working environment, flexible hours
Cons: Few hours, difficult/demanding customers, little chance of advancement
Working at Mark's is decent. There are few physically demanding tasks and few chances of getting bored because there is always something to keep you busy. The management I have worked with has been good. Supervisors were easy to get along with and made the experience pleasant each day. I love all my co-workers; they are all wonderful people and really make you feel like you're an important part of the team. I'm sure I'll keep in touch with them once its time to leave the position. The manager at my location was very accommodating but he is so stressed and busy that he sometimes forgets what days you wanted off and will schedule you in by mistake. With that said, when he makes a mistake, he never demands you work if you're unable to and will always try his best to find someone to replace you. There are also quite a few downsides to the position. First, there are few hours to go around because the company is ALWAYS hiring new people so those who work there already get few hours and sometimes, you can go weeks on end without getting a shift. Also, there is very little chance to advance in this company. The last thing I'd like to comment on is with respect to the retail aspect of the job, which is often very stressful and emotionally demanding. Some customers will test your patience the moment they walk through the door. They'll leave a huge mess on the floor and in the changing rooms and expect you to be happy for it cause you're getting paid to be their slave, after all. There are also many customers (usually women) who are extremely picky and will sometimes have fits if an item – more... does not come in their size or if the products available are not to their liking. Having said that, there are also customers who are a pleasure to serve and will leave you smiling after they leave. Overall, this is a good, temporary job for students who want to make money during their studies, but there are much better positions out there for older individuals who are looking to create a career for themselves. – less

Mark's in Espanola is a very friendly store to work at.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee), Espanola, ONJanuary 20, 2015
Pros: the employe discount
Cons: the lack of hours
Working at Mark's is a very enjoyable place to work, there is always something to learn in the job with the changes that are continuing to happen. My co-workers are the best, we laugh when we can and when it comes to work, we work together and get things done on time making sure the product is out and displayed properly. A typical day at work for me is to go in read the daily input so we know what and if there are changes being made, then i will start with replenishing if need be or cleaning, and look after the customers and help them with their choices and sell it to them. ( If they want it )
The most enjoyable part of my job there is to interact with the customers and help them learn what all our product is all about.

Friendly, fun and a great learning experience
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Spruce Grove, ABJanuary 8, 2015
A typical day at work is to prepare the store for opening. Along the day, I am mostly working at the tills. Others times I'd either unbox, restock and neatly tidy merchandise for the sales floor and providing any assistance to customers while doing so.
I love my co-workers. They make my work experience even more amazing. Everyone gets along so well. The management is great; they listen to you, care about your well being and very easy to talk to.
The hardest part of the job is when it gets very, very busy but I learn to handle the situations in the best way possible.
The most enjoyable part of the job is that everyone gets along. We help and support each other all the time. I believe that's important coming into a workplace.

Friendly, outgoing work environment
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee), Fredericton, NBDecember 28, 2014
An excellent place, you always feel welcome, whether you are a customer or a team member. Management is spectacular as they are right out there with you helping on the floor. Every shift was started out with a quick rundown on what our goals were for the day, what needed to be improved, and what incentives were going on, examples being contests, prizes, etc. Everyone I worked with was friendly, helpful, and more, the most enjoyable part of the job was simply going there, you always had something to look forward to.

do not work at white oaks
visual merchandiser (Former Employee), white oaks, edmonton abOctober 28, 2014
Pros: no pros about this place
Cons: management stinks, no communication between management and employee, they dont tell you if you are doing a good jobnot a good place. e
worked at white oaks square...management is poor! If i was the owner of this store i would have had all the women supervisor canned or demoted. Store is a mess, back room un organized stuff all over the place. In my short time got terminated, in which i had many years as a merchandiser or a visual merchThe reason was not working out BS. I thought i would apply close to home, big mistake. Stay away from this store. Like i said you are working with mainly woman.
