Undervalued and Underpaid
Barista and Cashier (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC21 November 2017
I've only worked for this company for a couple of months. I wake super early in the morning but we don't get compensated for that. The opening shift is 4:45am but even those people don't get night differential and most of the time they run late cause they have to get the keys from managers who are also running late. Co-workers are great although there are a few who spreads bad rumours. We work really hard to make sure we give the best customer service and yet we don't get recognition for that. They're motto is First Class everything yet they want us to leave our team behind even when it's super busy to go on break on the busiest hours of the day. When managers cover our breaks they don't have a clue on what to do.. They ask for the easy locations to take over instead of trying to learn what we're doing. So yeah this is a fun company.
Pros
Great co-workers with the exception of few
Cons
Early Morning(No Night Differential), minimum wage, no actual trainer, head managers are unappreciative and close-minded, favouritism

Its such a bad place to work bad management.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK2 July 2017
This company is horrible the manager is lazy and put all the work that he supposed to do to his worker's. Bad in communication. Aggresive to his workers specially the one in saskatoon airport. Manager doesn't show up to work when he supposed to. The communication in this workplace horrible. The manager talks behind you're back to the other workers. Un proffesional. Saskatoon airport branch is a bad place to work. You will not be appreciated. The sales goal of this company is unreal. For minimum wage job you will be working hard and work in different hours. (When your part time) they want you to work what they want you too even if you are not available. Don't work here!
Pros
Quiet branch
Cons
Bad management

Poor management, horrible treatment of employees
Sales (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB10 June 2017
Store was often out of stock of major items
Damaged or out of date devices are commonly used as customer demo models when trying to sell and up to date unit
Schedule was often set with very short notice and no regard for employees requested time off
Staff are promised commission based on hitting targets, but before targets are hit management will raise the targets to avoid paying.
This is often defended by management as 'providing incorrect targets', as if that makes it ok to take away staff commission.
Store is kept in general disrepair with cabinet doors falling off and security locks for drawers are held on with packing tape
Staff must park 20 mins away in over flow parking
You will be given 4 training shifts as a new hire then left in the store on your own for every shift after that.
Staff will be fired if they question or try to make improvements to any of the above.
Do not leave personal items at the store, if/when you are let go security will not let you retrieve them and management has a policy of immediately blocking the number of any staff member they no long have a use for.
Pros
None, this job offers nothing that reputable any other employer would
Cons
Poor management, sales staff suffer from kids running the store for their first time, will prevent access to personal belongings

Fun workplace but problem with management
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON21 March 2017
Typical Day will be completing picksheet for products you need from warehouse, opening the store and interact with customers. It' s always great to interact with passengers and airport staff. However, pay is way too low when you starts with minimum and YYZ starts with $12.5 plus $6 transit subsidy and YOW get nothing for transit subsidy. Management works in the basement and put out unrealistic policy and schedule, lack of communication between GM and fellow employee. And it doesn't really matter if you work hard or not. You can work extremely hard and ends up getting the same thing as the lazy people. Many things need to be fixed but management decided not to invest any budget on those things and ends up leaving us screwed. Needs communication and we deserve better treatment.

Unprofessional
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC3 December 2016
Considering the amount of work that has to be done the pay is not worth it. There is a lack of communication from management and they lead by harassment. It's a very unhealthy environment to be in.
Pros
Planes
Cons
Stress
