Up and Downs
Customer Service and Sales Representative (Former Employee), Brampton, ONFebruary 21, 2015
Pros: long hours that were enjoyable
Cons: lunches that weren't given when needed
Just like any other day at work it has its up and down's, also you're real fast/busy and then there's the empty days with any of the ways were 100 percent enjoyable.
best thing I learn from this job would have to be my communication skills, to have more encouragement, to earn customers Honesty, Faith, and Trust cause not having that then I wouldn't be working in the right place. My Co-Wokers and Management team was the best every Fun, Caring and Open Minded. The only thing that I would have to say was the hardest part of my job working
there was for my to Smile and the easiest and enjoyable part is working with the best team of co-workers and meeting alot of new people

A great work environment.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Hamilton, ONFebruary 25, 2015
Pros: a pro would be the employee appreciation pizza parties.
Cons: a con would be the long hours on my feet.
A typical day at work includes interacting with customers and providing excellent customer service while performing cash, fitting room and general recovery duties.

At this job I have learned that time management is very important as well as being able to multi task and work on a team.

For the most part the managers and supervisors are encouraging, supportive, and are there to assist us with our daily duties.

The hardest part of he job would be the standing on my feet in one place for hours on end.

The most enjoyable part of the job is that I get to work with a group of energetic and welcoming people. Being at work is fun because most of the employees get along really well.

The staff is very nice to work with
Production Worker (Former Employee), Kelowna, BCNovember 25, 2015
Overall, not too bad. It's mostly about working with your fellow employees and they are all good. We help each other, get the job done and handle the stressors together that comes in every day.

Sometimes if we did a good quota, we got to go home earlier, and of course, everyone liked that.

The hardest part of the job is hauling out the clothing racks. The wheels are small and they are constantly clogged with thread and dust and dirt, which made it very hard to pull the racks around the store.

This is a good company to work for, lots of room for advancement.
Its hard work but the rewards are there.
If you are young and want to get some experience in Management, this is the place. The logistics, people, and the many things you have to juggle will teach you really fast how to manage.

Awful place to work.
Soft goods production staff (Former Employee), Sherwood Park, ABAugust 29, 2015
No gratitude from the management.
treated like a nothing.
Worst EMPLOYERS EVER.
Health risk, they tell you to smell in the mouldy bags of clothes, and they are very mouldy.
Place is a health hazard.
I would definitely not recommend working for this company.

Very Poor Treatment of Staff
Production Team Member (Former Employee), Sherwood Park, AlbertaMay 4, 2015
Pros: No Pros...
Cons: Negative and unhealthy work environment.
This specific location is very poorly managed and staff are disrespected and bullied consistently. Irrational expectations in production and management operates based on extreme prejudice. They do not follow or promote any safety guidelines and push their staff to the extreme. If you work here, prepare for your "confidential" information to be shared with anyone who is currently on the manager's good side. This company has wasted more time writing people up inconsistently and unfairly and trying to "squeeze" the higher paid staff (or anyone who may be a potential threat to management since they obviously run their store based on their own insecurities) that they are losing money and hard working staff members who actually drank the purple kool-aid and believed that they were making a difference in people's lives.
