Processes that work, culture that rocked, people that were awesome
Inventory Control Expert (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – February 1, 2016
Pros: Free snacks / drinks, great culture, tonnes of benefits and perks
Cons: Mall retail hours, no corporate advancement, SUPER lengthy interview process
Each day had a routine, and that routine made sense. Heavily team based. We were all trained on how to use Microsoft products, and then used those Microsoft products everyday at our jobs. Made that job and my future jobs a lot easier to do. :) There was 3 weeks of training in a hotel while the store was built. Tonnes of fun and really helped build a sense of community and commraderie amongst the retail staff. Paid decent wages for retail staff. TONNES of benefits and perks. Free drinks and snacks and if there was ever an event, free food too. Great initiative amongst the management teams to keep everyone motivated. No room for advancement beyong retail though. The corporate offices are in Mississauga and I don't believe there was a channel to take from retail to corporate.
