A little waywards. Fun people to work with, though.
Cashier, Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Bradford West Gwillimbury, ON – 20 September 2017
My typical morning at TSC would include cleaning the storefront and setting the daily deal on my till to be advertised to each customer. Then I would greet customers upon entrance from till. At the end of my shift I would take my till to the cash office and count out the required set aside amount, then the earnings. I’d clock out and go home.
Certified Receiver (Former Employee) – Ontario – 25 September 2017
They ask you to work 40+ hours a week at just over minimum wage. They do not offer great training at Tillsonburg location. Store manager barely knows how to use a computer, Assistant store manager attempts to engage in relations with almost every new female hire including new hires under the age of 18. Not a great working environment at all.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Brockville, ON – 4 May 2017
I love working at TSC and the fast pace environment. The people are great and the overall work environment is great. I have worked at TSC for almost three years and I still love going into work everyday
Merchandiser (Work Internship) (Former Employee) – London, ON – 21 April 2017
The enjoyable part of the jobs I have been a part of is customer relations experience. The hardest part of any job in customer service is dealing with angry or disgruntled customers. In my experience I have learned a lot of business knowledge. The best workplace culture is where I was empowered to make my own decisions and be a valued employee.
A typical day at work is greeting my associates and management personnel with a smile and be ready for the coming day of business related experience and continue in ethical company procedures.
The management business relationships in my work experience have mostly been positive. But at times I did question some of the decisions that were made by management.
Love my job, company was not good to work for after TD bank took over ownership
Retail Clerk (Former Employee) – Simcoe, ON – 20 March 2017
My last two years at this employment was as label coodernator. I enjoyed the hours I worked, but was not enough to live off of and raise two kids. I loved my job, and loved working customer service as well.
Stock Clerk (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 20 March 2017
Typically you either help costumers with fulfilling their shopping needs as well as helping load bought products on to customers trailers and trucks. You will be around more of a country crowed. The hardest part if you are not a country person is know what the customers are looking for if they are looking for something specific. I have often found that the hardest part of the day is standing on your feet all day long.
Stock Person (Former Employee) – Bowmanville, ON – 22 December 2016
Everyday was the same. The minimum amount of hours and staff with maximum amount of work. Management doesn't care about staff and always blamed the higher ups for all their problems. Everyone always just complained and blamed each other. No training. No organization. Limited communication. Teamwork was frowned upon. This job was worth some experience in retail at best.
General Labourer (Former Employee) – London, ON – 25 November 2016
a typical day at TSC is faced with a lot of challenges, usually to the start of the day they barely have enough machines for every working person. Everything is now based on a quota system that doesn't match with the work that has to be done. Picks vs Pieces is the most common fight that occurs with workers not being able to hit a quota. There has been a lack of loyalty that surrounds TSC whether it has to do with hours being cut for people who work hard and have been around longer than others or its the part time employees that get laid off within a days notice about 2 times a year. Part-timers/seasonal will be offered 40 hours a week when busy and it looks promising that you will stay doing full-time hours until it's not as busy and they start cutting hours. There is little chance of moving up as everyone usually just does one job until they retire or quit.
