Terrible Management
Part time sales associate (Current Employee), mississaugaJuly 24, 2015
Pros: close to home
Cons: no hours
My schedule is always made last minute, I'm always scheduled on days that aren't apart of my availability. There is only 100 hours available for the week and my manager hired a lot of people at once so now the hours are decreasing

While being pregnant while working at payless, I was able to perform tasks on my own to the best of my ability. I was not judged by my co-workers in any way. They made me feel comfortable.

Opportunity to advance, great benifits
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), OrangevilleMay 20, 2015
Pros: Incentive Program - Great Benefits
Cons: Long Hours, Always Short Staffed
Typical day would include - opening store, cash count, greeting customers, explaining promos, working through new hire work books, training, inventory scanning, product placement, shelf displays, talking about promotions with customers, assisting with sizing for children and adults.
I learned many different customer services skills, organization skills, and training methods for new and existing staff.
Management was always able to help you move up in the company and encouraged staff to apply for opening positions.
Co-workers were hard working and motivated.
Hardest part of the job was keeping up with demand for new products and keeping up with busy months when short staffed.
Most enjoyable was the customer interaction as well as the close friendships developed between staff.

A great learning experience
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Brampton, OntarioApril 29, 2015
Pros: Free lunches occasionally
Cons: Lack of hours
A typical day at work consists of engaging with customers, finding desired shoes, measuring kid's feet, and ensuring the showcases for shoes displays were organized. The management was overall great, however there was a lack of employee training. I enjoyed working with my co-workers as they were very helpful and easy to work with. The hardest part of the job was the clean up procedure after each shift was completed. However, the most enjoyable part of the job was engaging with customers and being able to help someone.

New company to Canada
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Oshawa, ONMarch 25, 2015
Pros: Great people to work with
Cons: long hours
It was one of the first store to open in Canada. This was an eye opening experience when I first started.
Learning how to set up new stores was new for me.
Being taught how to set the shoes up on the racks was interesting
