The pay is not that great for the amount of work which is expected. There is no room for advancement and you often work alone.

Key holder and OHS Representative (Current Employee) –  St.John's, NLMarch 17, 2013
Wicker Emporium has been the perfect job to coincide with my schooling over the past two years. I have been able to enhance my interpersonal, time management, organizational and creative skills through working at Wicker. Everyone from store level to head office are fantastic to work with and for. It can get physically demanding with a lot of heavy lifting and moving of furniture for merchandising changes, but it is always fun to have the opportunity to either create or re-create a merchandising plan for the store.
Pros
flexible schedules and appreciative upper management.
