Love to work for company. Great benefits and resources available. Company cares about employees even at the retail even. Health benefits are not the best, they do not cover much at more than 50% of drugs and don't have the best coverage for other needs.

Fashion Consultant/Cashier (Full-Time) (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 27 April 2015
What I have learned from working at Mexx, is first and foremost that I have a passion for sales. My experience at Mexx has only furthered my ability to sell, while promoting strong customer service, both of which made my job enjoyable. My favourite part of the job was the satisfaction of knowing that I was able to help customers and make an positive impact in their shopping experience. Furthermore, by initially working as a stock associate, I have further advanced my organization skills, and have realized that I truly enjoy creating efficiency and order. I strongly appreciate my time at Mexx immensely, as my time at the company has helped me strengthen these two skills that I believe have made me a more versatile employee.

Fashion Consultant (Former Employee) – Pen Centre, St. Catharines, Ontarion, Canada – 30 March 2015
Working in Mexx Canada was quite a pleasant experience! Mexx team is very supportive and make you feel absolutely comfortable asking for some guidance if you need too. Mexx atmosphere always made you feel secure. Management was always in touch and provided us with the most recent updates and well-explained tasks. All team members always showed up on time, which shows the respect towards other employees. The most difficult thing i faced throughout my time in Mexx was dealing with shoplifting but our management team gave us clear instructions and we followed them. I can not really think about the most enjoyable part because I'm pretty much equally satisfied with everything. Managers always welcomed the appetency to work extra hours, all employees had their breaks according the schedule. Moreover, schedule was built including employees interests and availability. I have gained a lot of useful experience while working for Mexx Canada, such as : dealing with difficult customers, handle stress, manage my time properly in order to meet a deadline, greet customers in a friendly manner and also assist customers professionally. In conclusion I would like to say that it was a great experience working for Mexx and its a great start for your further career!

Mexx as a workplace was a very supportive work environment where you could grow your skills and have the opportunity to advance your career. With hard work and dedication I was rewarded with new opportunities and advancement within the company. I was empowered to make critical decisions and asked to support on national level.

Seasonal Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 24 January 2015
Typical day included cleaning the store if I was opening, likewise if closing, making sure the tables were organized and the clothes weren't unfolded, answering any of the customer's questions, and helping with changing rooms if needed. It was a great experience overall, but sad to see Mexx close!
