Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON24 May 2017
I worked here a few years ago and have been reluctant to review the company, but I decided that I will. I've never worked somewhere where there was so much gossip, especially when management does not nip it in the bud. I worked harder than most of my associates that were busy talking about their co-workers, yet I was never good enough.

The managers fail to understand that the reason the turnover rate is so high is because they lack people skills, which is the most important one to master if you want to be a successful manager. All they care about are numbers and quotas being met. That's good management to them. This company will not last much longer if they continue to treat their workers like they do not matter. I left for this specific reason.
Pros
Steady job if you are consistent
Cons
The culture in the whole entire store is a shame.

Sales Associate and Cashier (Current Employee) –  London, ON21 May 2017
A wonderful place to work, No complaints, however I believe it should be more than minimum wage for the work being done. And some of the setups of clothing are too full and it makes it difficult to organize and roll racks when they are so full.

Very fun place to work make sure you have goals daily
Worker/ Production Manager (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON15 May 2017
If you like a fast pace work with achievable goals in place, great team, job culture great mix, management interacts well on a day to day basis to their ability. Hardest part of the job is when some team members missing for various reasons sick, vacation, appointments and suddenly having to leave during shift having to pull the work load as a normal day. Enjoyed lunches day off with pay contest between other locations.
Pros
Free lunches, Birthday off paid, Manager who cares.
Cons
Short staff, not enough upper management support.

Company quickly went downhill .......upper management destroyed moral and permitted harassment....."open door " policy is an absolute joke......you will quickly learn this place is not at all what it seems.....or what it could be with actual skilled management

Not recomended
Recycler (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON20 February 2017
As a recycler you must be on your feet at all times, must be able to lift boxes, shoe bins, etc for a short period of time but repeatedly, take out garbages and must have garbage bins emptied.
Pros
Good discounts, good people
Cons
Long hours, tight space, will have back problems.

Minimum wage with maximum stress
Team Member (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON26 January 2017
this company acts like it cares about its employees but really they view them as disposable replaceable and won't hesitate to do so for whatever reason they deem acceptable. communication is lost on everyone. senior employees are rude to new hires and less tenured staff. full timers are rude part timers are lazy. they apply a lot of pressure and high standards for a low paying job and think offering ten cents more for full time people is worth it. employees are discouraged and sometimes reprimanded for using sick days or booking time off.
several employees have been reprimanded or terminated for receiving and reporting injuries.
secretly shady.
Pros
Employee discount, paid birthday
Cons
Dust, dirt, bed bugs, reprisals, low pay, incompetent management, useless HR, rude staff

Great place
Production Team Member (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON11 January 2017
I've worked here for years and seen the ups and downs. The management team are caring and try to help you be good at your job. There is high turnover but only if you don't like to work in a fast paced environment. If you like to work and want full time, it's a great place!
Pros
Fast paced, Good people, Friendly management, Good for the environment, Great discount, FT work, Paid benefits
Cons
Faced paced and goals dirven

Anonymous employee (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON19 December 2016
It's a dusty place to work in but being a thrift business dust is a part of it and also gloves and masks are provided. It's a Monday to Friday shift in production unless you work on the sales floor. The management is approachable and all work together as a team. You are required to achieve your numbers and goals daily but it's not difficult unless you are lazy and constantly distracted.
The benefits are great and all paid by the company. The people are friendly and enjoyable to work with and you always find that something special everyday.
Pros
Paid birthday off, regular potlucks, great health benefits and approachable management team.
Cons
None

Operations Staff (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON10 August 2016
Poor management and custmers complaints were often overlooked. The constant floor plan change often confused customers and made their shoopping experience at times very frustrating.

Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC3 August 2016
I worked in production. Was promised full time. Job wasn't full time. Supervisors and management spend the day walking around and telling everyone to go faster. They hope to get their quota as fast as possible so that they can send everyone home early. So, you hear "I need 250 more items" every day or something like that being harped at you. They time you on every job you do. Literally, you write it down on sheets. The times alloted aren't much. You will spend all day hauling at warp speed for..... minimum wage and so they can cut your hours savung themselves more money. If you ever need time off, you will most likely be denied. Family getting married and need 2 days off? Forget it. If you get sent home sick, you will be forced to bring a doctor note before you can work next. Even if they see you are sick and ask you to go home. Daily, the talk amongst employees consists of griping about how very little they are paid, the way they are talked to by the production supervisor/management, how they can't afford their families because of the lack of hours and they all talk of quitting. This Talize seems to have "hiring fairs" beause so many quit. Bottom line, if you want a job where you are severely overworked, underpaid, can never miss a single day and like getting talked to ignorantly by your bosses, this is the job for you. Why not sell your self respect and dignity for minimum wage?
Pros
free pizza on sale days
Cons
no hours, poor pay, poor treatment

Awful management
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON16 June 2016
The management is awful. You're talked down to, treated like you're stupid, and make you feel bad for asking questions. One manager in particular also gives off a sort of frustrated attitude when approached with questions or comments. A lot of employees seemed to have had a problem with one of the managers, of which, they do nothing about.

Company also gives fake promises of promotion within the company. Don't bet on it, they end up hiring people applying from outside the company.

Overall treatment is very poor, and no room for growth.
Pros
50% discount
Cons
Treatment, management, dusty environment, low wages
