Pros: free coffee every once and a while
Cons: management is bias
working for payless wasn't that bad! my co- workers were funny and the customers were always nice to me! while i was there, i kept on top of everything given to me, but still my boss wouldn't promote me even though i had the highest sales and was the most improved!

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

Store Leader/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMarch 13, 2015

A very warm work environment with fun-loving people,Happy selling shoes
Assistant Store Leader (Former Employee), Windsor, OntarioMarch 10, 2015
Pros: quick career growth if sincere and hard working
Cons: too often promotion change
A typical day at work started with me signing in the system at the back office; checking the communications from the head office, sales performance of my associate and that day's target sales. Then I would give a round in the store to see how my merchandises are displayed and give a break to the associate.Take care of the sales floor till the associate is back. Then we used to do the next task to be completed;either filling or shipment or any management or training job. End of the store hours, closing the Point Of Sales and computer after calculation and locking the store.So i have pretty much learned all skills required in a retail environment. My co-workers were fun-loving and hard working,so it was never tiring being long hours in the store. The most enjoyable part of the job was dealing with the customers. Different people different personalities with different needs,and making most of them happy used to make me love this job more.

Key Holder/Sales Associate (Former Employee), St. Catharines, ONMarch 4, 2015
Started by opening the store and serving customers politely and cashing them out. When it came time for new promotions it would require tagging every sale item and making sure everything was in its correct order and clean.

Sales (Former Employee), Kelowna, BCFebruary 8, 2015
It was a great little job for me while I was in Kelowna B.C for 8 months they were very flexible with me coming and leaving in such a short time. It was a good company and my managers we're very nice they even hired me at the other store in Kelowna so they could give me full time hours.
