Sales Associate (Former Employee), Burlington, ON – March 24, 2015
Pros: Getting to help customers.
Worked at Marshalls Burlington. Typical day at work consisted of one person in each section. A lot of the time you didn't have any help doing anything and you got called away to be on cash a lot. Management didn't seem to do to much until the end of my time there. I almost never saw them helping out on the floor with the exception of a couple people. Terrible hours, you cannot get a consistent schedule. Playing favourites, still book you on requested days off. You can work 9-5 one day then not get booked again for 3 days and them it's just a 4 hour shift. Hardest part of the job was never being able to get anything done because it was so understaffed but I guess that was kind of head offices fault in not giving enough hours for the store to use to properly staff the store. Customers complained that there were never many employees on the floor to help them, or not enough cashiers to make the line move quicker. No raises unless you specifically ask for them, not really any incentive programs. Loved most of the people I worked with but I would not go back.
