Senior Sales Associate (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MBFebruary 5, 2014
dealing with customers and diffusing their natural distrust of sales people. being able to read them and figure out their needs quickly and be able to refer them to a product that best suits their needs. Having to trouble shoot and come up with creative ways to overcome obstacles day to day. dealing with buyers remorse.

Pros: having one weekend off per month
I came from a legal background, and received excellent training. It is an extremely competitive place of emloyment, so you learn to toughen up. The best part of the job is going above and beyond to obtain someone credit whom would not have been able to purchase.

Great if you don't mind working with Snobs, And Managers with rap sheets.
Warehouse Staff/Merchandiser/Electronics Expert (Former Employee), Calgary, ABDecember 6, 2013
Pros: co-workers
Cons: everything else
a typical day for me would have been to do all jobs in the entire building to get paid $13 after start at $13 and being there for almost 3 years.

What I learned is that, being an A-hole to those below you, does not matter as the store Manager At the SUNRIDGE location does a lot. Oh and hits on female employees and then they quit.

Management was terrible, – more... all terrible people inside and out, ugly and unpredictable. Happiness was shoveled from that place along time ago.

The co-workers were great, lots of fun, making fun of the managers, watching the store manager freak out, when his boss showed up, and he had to clean up his line of coke.

The hardest part was accepting such a low pay cheque.

The most enjoyable part of the job was, well nothing. – less
