productive and fun workplace with great people to work with
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONMarch 16, 2015
a typical day was helping cusomers finding what they are searching for, help them into a fitting room, and cash them out. What i learned was good social skills. Management gave us good advice on how to do better and the co-workers were so friendly and supportive. The hardest part of the job was not knowing where certain clothes were located when someone asked for it. The most enjoyable part of the job was able to go to work stress free and leave work stress free.

Suzy Shier
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Sault Ste. Marie, ONFebruary 25, 2015
I enjoyed working at Suzy Shier. I got a job opportunity after doing so many co-op hours there. I worked with a great staff and awesome management. I moved out of town to attend school or I'm sure I'd still be working there.

I wasn't happy near the end.
KEY HOLDER (Former Employee), Burnaby, BCFebruary 14, 2015
I worked for Suzy for almost two years, while I did enjoy my time and everything I learned, near the end of my employment I was treated not very well by a manager. While my old manager was fantastic my last manager was very condescending and negative re-enforcement was her method of managing. I know there are some great managers out there but I was unlucky.

Amazing Way and opportunity to serve customers in a fast pace environment.
Part timer/Team Leader/Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCJanuary 21, 2015
Pros: flexibles hours
Cons: change of schedules
Everyday is challenging and exciting. I learned to be multitasking and efficient and short periods of time. I managed customers, company demands and provided efficient training to all my co-workers everyday. The hardest part of the job was prioritizing tasks and guide the team members to be on top of what was important for the day. At the end of the day, it was rewarding to see beating last year sales. It was enjoyable to go home and accomplish sales.

Great people to work with and definitely helps build customer service skills.
Full Time Key Holder (Current Employee), Fairview Park Mall, Kitchener ONJanuary 5, 2015
A typical day at work included filling out opening / closing paperwork, greeting and helping customers, as well as cashing customers out at the register. I learned great customer service skills. The management at the store is great, and I was part of it as well. Everyone I work with are very friendly and we all get along. The hardest part of the job is being on your feet all day and dealing with angry customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping friendly customers and putting in an honest days work.

Low Salary Means Lack of Staff Retention
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Charlottetown, PEIJanuary 4, 2015
Pros: hour long breaks were nice! benefits were decent.
Cons: pay was terrible, hours were terrible, and terrible staff retention.
A typical day included customer service, retail sales, organizing, recommending, suggesting, stocking, inventory, and minor cleaning tasks.

I learned a lot about visual merchandising and poster setting.

Management was lacking in the sense that there was constantly need for staff as we couldn't hold on to anyone. This made it difficult for current staff as we were always called in and schedules changed constantly.

Co-workers were excellent and flexible.

The hardest part of the job was the lack of consistency with the schedule and the terrible retention we faced. The near minimal pay and lack of hours to go 'round made it difficult for the staff who worked hard, wanted to move up, and were successful employees.

The best, or most enjoyable part of my job was the staff and the customers. I love interacting with people. I was always grateful that I was able to secure at least 32 hours, but this wasn't the case for the majority of staff.

An environment where I learned a lot, but spent a short period within.
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Dufferin MallSeptember 6, 2014
I would be working at the dressing room constantly running around doing my best to meet all the customers needs as quickly and efficiently as possible,or I would be in the back unboxing new stock an hanging the clothes.There was almost no job security there since was placed there but was getting paid by the government, and since it was only a summer job. Within a month I was moved to another placement since te store began to hire actual workers.
