Nice friendly environment
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONOctober 8, 2015
Very friendly and supportive environment with very reasonable expectations from associates. The best part of work is serving customers, to greet them, to welcome to the store, to tell them about new sales and promotions, to understand their needs, to learn about reason they came to the store, to help them to choose right product using the product knowledge and personal taste. It is privilage for me to work with such a nice team and learn from them.

Good place to work
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Halifax, NSNovember 2, 2015
Other then not enough hours it is a good place to work. The staff and management are very helpful and will work with you, when needed. Training is very easy, if you can stand for extended periods this is a great place to work, one downfall I find is that they push people to hard to get credit applications.

Logistics Operations Manager (Current Employee), Calgary, ABOctober 15, 2015
Pros: none
Cons: none
I manage and work with my teams to satisfy our customers daily. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with people. I have vast knowledge in warehousing and transportation and the key to success in this field of work is people and not to over complicate things as in the end it is just a box with stuff going in and stuff going out.
