Awesome place to work. Great people, with lots of opportunity for fun at work
Assistant Team Leader (Current Employee) – Kingston, ON – 1 March 2018
I have learned many aspects of leadership from the people I have worked with. Their is very much a family feel to the people across the company. This company works as a team across the country for 1 goal, 1 plan.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Langley, BC – 26 February 2018
I was fairly nervous when I got hired because my past three jobs had been temporary/seasonal positions. Thankfully this location was completely different! My three month probation came and went without even a peep from management.
I've been here for almost a year now and I absolutely love it. (Almost) everyone is like family to me. It's great coming to work and actually getting a long with my coworkers. Being able to talk to anyone like they're my friend is such a good feeling.
The only downside to this location is that more people seem to be leaving than management is able to hire so all the employees are stretched fairly thin.
friendly coworkers, great benefits, frequent raises

Princess Auto is a company that is unwilling to move ahead and advance with the social media trends in order to service the up and coming consumer. Accountability is not on the forefront with coaching Leaders or associates alike.

You get good benefits but if you're part time you can only get them after 2 years and full time 6 months I believe. Management sucks and not enough people working shifts, constant complaints from costumers about no assistance provided by employees but management still doesn't do anything about it. Management complains about employees not doing anything but standing around and just chatting when managers do the exact same thing but rather than doing it out on the floor- they do it in the back where they're not seen for their entire shift. Customers make inappropriate comments to you and feel like its okay and theres nothing employees can do about it.
Sales (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 22 January 2018
Not the greatest place to work at... A lot of hard work goes unseen and if you make one small mistake, management is on you asap. You will never hear a "good job" or a "keep it up" there's a lot of unnecessary drama and childish behaviour from your own team members and leaders (management).
floor sales associate (Former Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 12 January 2018
It was a great pleasure to work for this company. Learned alot of new experiences and will use them for my next job. I learned how to deal with customers, make shipping orders, put stock out and merchandising product
Team Member (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 10 January 2018
Sounds like a lot of bitter ex employees have left comments. I loved working there and there are several people that have worked there for years and years. Management cares about everyone and is always recognizing good work.
Sales member (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, AB – 4 January 2018
- Go to work in a good mood usually and leave miserable - a lot of the stuff i learned in the store was from customers telling me the applications they're using the item for -management is half assed but exceptional, lots of bad work ethic - 95% of the employees treat eachother as family, all willing to help eachother through tough times at work or home - hardest part of the job is trying to please the store managers when theyre never happy with anything you do -the most enjoyable part of the job is building relationships and friendships with customers and they always come back and are loyal to you.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 1 January 2018
Not every day is an easy day no matter where you work. What I've learned form working at Princess Auto is that you always have the support of your co-workers to help you get through the day. I enjoy my job as being a cashier because it gives me the chance to associate myself with customers and interact with them.
Although, the management of the job in the other hand is very poorly done. The company do not have reliable workers to count on to show up for there shifts which has an effect on the store at times.
However, like I was saying from before not everyday is an easy day you will always stumble across bad days but, you just have to push yourself through it no matter what the situation is.

Management is very greedy .Team Leaders . get actual managers because team leaders abuse their rights all the time . they think they dont have to do anything. they will sit their on their buts all day.
Department Manager, Staff Trainer (Former Employee) – Alberta – 30 November 2017
pretty good place to work. I was there during a turmoil-filled period in upper management as it transitioned from a large family run operation to a more corporate structuring while ambitiously opening stores. Some poorly researched choices were made which lost a lot of good people.
cashier and guest services (Former Employee) – Brandon, MB – 27 November 2017
princess auto has a very friendly environment and the workflow is pretty steady. seasonal sales bring a lot of busy days but as far as a job goes, it's a good place to make money and learn a bit about tools.
