Amazing coworkers, that's it.
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 August 2016
Face paced environment where you can learn exemplary customer service skills and selling techniques, good place to start in the retail/cosmetic world. Some of the best coworkers and comradery you'll have the pleasure of working with. Benefits for full time, gratis occasionally received, monthly bonuses are possible.
Not on commission, still a large pressure to sell. Training is inconsistent.
Management team is big and there is little consistency between them. Favouritism means that some will advance, while most won't. Coaching moments are demoralizing.
Absolutely no work-life balance, nine hour days, clopens are regular, inconsistent shifts, availability often ignored. There is no compassion for calling in sick, having constant health issues, and generally any non work related things.
Any complaint or request for availability or actions for development can be ignored or used against you, very hostile environment.
Unless you are management, there is a wage cap on what you can earn. You will earn anywhere between $11-$15. You are disposable at the floor level, and they pay you accordingly,
Poor management, no work life balance
