You get what you put in
General Labourer (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ONOctober 15, 2015
Talize is a good place to work if you work honestly and productively.

The only stress you are put under is the stress you allow yourself to be put under.

There are sometimes communication problems between employee levels, but this can be rectified with effort rather than complaining.

Current management team are open and realize we are all a team with different tasks to accomplish.

At times, projects or ideas are abandoned mid-job.
Pros
Employee discount, some good co-workers.
Cons
Some employees get away with being slow and lazy and cause extra work from those with work ethic, which is highly unfair.

Terrible treatment of staff
Sales Floor Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ONAugust 31, 2015
Head Office Employees are rude and disrespectful to store employees. District manager hasn't a clue how to improve daily issues because they don't bother to try to experience what team members do. Store Manager at this location will not confront issues head on, prefers to ignore and hope it'll go away.

No job security for any employees. Very high turn over rate due to treatment of staff and low wages.

Head Office will not hesitate to terminate a team member for reporting injury, requesting time off, requesting that they be treated with respect or for asking for the schedule to be out one week in advance.

Do not apply here!
Pros
50% discount
Cons
no respect. vacation blackout in October. dusty environment.

Part-time Cashier (Former Employee) –  11930 88 Ave, Delta, BC V4C 3C8June 26, 2015
For those that do not know what a Talize is... it's basically a better version of Value Village. Everything here is is either brand new or only used once. I still see a price tag on some of these items! It's always a bargain here!Service/Organization: This Talize is very well organized. The large banners on the top of each section of items are very helpful. I find that this Talize has a really good organization system for clothes. They sort by style of clothes, size of clothes and then color! Tip: Some days they have specific colored tags on 50% off, so make sure you take advantage of the savings!

cool place to shop, not work
full time production / p.t cashier (Former Employee) –  brampton, onMay 25, 2015
If you like lifting heavy ,dirty items. Dealing with unorganized management and finicky cutomers for min. wage ,by all means this is the job for you. I tried so hard to stay with the company but they don't care about the workers who slave away all day. Its like a jail. I'd rather work at McDonalds than this moldy,dust accumulated place. It was so bad for my health physically and mentally I lost weight due to stress after working here.
Pros
decent benefits, employee discount
Cons
health hazards, quota expectations to be met, etc.

Friendly environment, lots of room for growth!
Full time worker (Current Employee) –  Delta, BCApril 30, 2015
While entry level positions are comparable to the competition, there is a lot of opportunity to move up and learn a lot of new skills for those who are interested.

The atmosphere is fun and friendly most of the time with lots of great co-workers and always interesting customers.

Tons of unique funky items and an always changing inventory!!
Pros
Staff lunches, benefits for full time employees, lots of room for growth, friendly people
Cons
Can be dusty, some donations are appalling

Good company to work.
Store Production Manager, Brampton (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ONJune 19, 2014
New company and already some stores are unionized - may be tricky for management staffs. Job security for management staffs may be a problem. Salary is good but expectations are very high. Trying to compete with other thrift store companies but lack of GTA company may be a problem.

Fairly enjoyable work place, friendly coworkers, however lack of communication between managers
Production Team Member (Current Employee) –  Delta, BCNovember 16, 2013
Product is sorted, and quality and price is determined. From there it is put onto its appropriate place on the sales floor. I have learned how to properly merchandise the sales floor to appeal to customers, and how to accurately price items to be put onto the floor. Overall the management team is open, and easy to talk to. However, they lack communication among themselves which leads to confusion in the workplace. The hardest part of the job is to continually maintain a clean and organized section throughout the day. The most enjoyable part of the job is the overall morale and convenient hours.
Pros
convenient hours
Cons
not a career job

No Job Security - Inexperienced Top Management
Store Manager in Training (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONMay 8, 2013
One of the most unethical and miss-managed company I've ever seen, this happened due to lack of experience of top management and mentality to solve problem with money without digging the root cause.
Pros
good salary and benefits and mon-fri 8-4:30 shift for managers
Cons
no job security - constant change without long term plan

Laid back, hardworking people and cheap clothes.
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONApril 8, 2013
Great for building and strengthening customer service and multitasking skills.Excellent for thrifters and students who are looking to save some money while in school. You always get first dibs on affordable used (sometimes new) merchandise. Left here because I needed a job closer to my university in downtown Toronto.
