Assistant Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Thunder Bay, ON – 9 May 2017
This is a very easy place to work, job wise. But the staff and management are very clicky. If they do not like you, you know it. They treat you poorly and with disrespect. I enjoyed working there, for the customers and learning about retail.
As a production worker, you are required to work unreasonably hard with unreachable quotas. You're treated as slaves by management, in a moldy, dusty environment with no air ventilation. Very little chance for advancement.

Cashier (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 3 May 2017
Overall great place to work, flexible hours, great team members and benefits. Always something to do and room to grow. Management was great and the best part was meeting new people and helping customers out
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 1 May 2017
Toxic work environment when it comes to management. Team members get a lot of the blame for not hitting sales targets. No room for advancement. Has the potential to do really great things within the community but the company is becoming more and more profit based and forgetting about the community that allows VV to be successful.
Team Member/Cashier (Part-time) (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 27 April 2017
People of management and supervisors never seem to be on the same page and don't get along well. Team members are so kind and help you out with whatever you might need. You don't have to feel embarrassed asking the team members questions if you forget certain things on the job. Love working here but management could be doing so much more to help out the company. Many team members have ideas but management doesn't listen to us because they're so unorganized.
Snacks on certain days, fun donation drives (only once a year though), Halloween shop, friendly team members
Management was not respectful of student employees
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 24 April 2017
The management at Value Village were not receptive to the fact that employees, especially student employees, had other demands on their time. Employees were expected to live and breathe the company, even when they were part-time and minimum wage. Frequently yearly reviews were put off many months in order to avoid having to give an employee a raise.
