Fun atmosphere, friendly customers
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 19 May 2016
Typical day: customer service, refilling low stock, some tasking, setting up display patio furniture, safety spotting heavy machinery
Learned about merchandise (which is always useful since they sell home improvement equipment and necessities) and garden care in the Garden Centre.
Management were supportive and friendly, but there were occasionally communication issues.
Hardest part of the job: there is a lot to know about a lot of merchandise, (in any department), heavy lifting.
Most enjoyable part of the job: friendly co-workers, helping customers and solving problems.
Some free lunches, management awards good work, happy atmosphere
Not many tasks during off-peak hours, hours can go late (11 pm), hectic during peak hours
