Fun place to work if not for the horrendous management
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Canada – 10 May 2016
The pay is okay but not nearly enough for what is expected of you as a sales associate. Expect to do sorting, lifting and everything in between as you would in a general labour job. It IS a micromanaged environment. Steer clear if that is not a workplace you thrive in. Management went through a change at the location where I worked and the new manager was quite rude, unprofessional and passive aggressive, creating a negative, frustrating environment to continue working in for numerous employees. If you're not looking for many hours, this is the place to work at as regular sales associate (no matter the availability you provide them with) outside of holiday seasons are rarely given more than twenty hours per week, sometimes as little as five hours per week. Also expect to train new employees (or be trained by other employees) as current management is lazy and too consumed with store traffic and profit as opposed to properly training new employees.

Not enough hours, poor pay considering how much they expect of you and and want you to do, cash system is always down, competition amongst employees, and poor management in a micromanaged environment
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Cookstown, ON – 29 September 2015
My manager suddenly up and left so we were working without a manager for about three months. During that time, a key holder decided she would step in and act as the manager, bossing everyone around. It was a good job in the beginning but quickly turned into a sh** show.
