Customer Service Representative (Part-time) (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 20 October 2017
Definitely had fun working there. the staff and management were all very friendly. it felt like a family. I also loved their 10 percent discount for staff. you can get lots of hours if they like you or if they feel they need you.
A fast-paced environment that taught me how to speak to other people who I don't know. It taught me a lot about customer service and that the customer is always right. They're very keen on keeping their customers happy, no matter what the price.
Floor associate (Current Employee) – Markham – 19 October 2017
I have worked over four years there. Hours range from 7 hours per week to maximum of 10 hours per week at the Markham Winners HomeSense store for part time employees. Sometimes they offer less than 7 hours per week. More hours are temporarily offered to new employees in order to train them. There are no heath benefit coverage for part time employees. Breaks and lunches are often late especially when there is a long line of customers. People who work on the floor and warehouse are sometimes called to front cash when the line of customers to pay for their purchases are long. This does cause problems when there is no one to help the customer on the floor. Pay is less than $13/hr in many cases and a raise if you get any is no more than $0.30/hr on your anniversary date of hire.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 October 2017
Unfortunately, I've been rejected for a supervisor position. However, the managers didn't lose hope for me and my contributions. They came up with a development program just for me, so that I may improve on the skills that I'll need to be a great supervisor. I'm still working on my developing my skills and I have shown vast improvements. My managers and supervisors have been really good to me.
Coordinator/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 16 October 2017
A good place to develope personal goals and move up. they expect too much with little support and little pay ( even tho the company makes millions ) working with the people there is great! Hardest part of the job is to achieve " Door To Floor" when there are barely enough staff, they schedule people base off of sales which is very ridiculous.
%10 off and sometimes %20 which is better than nothing.
No Set schedule. Management seem to only care about getting things done and not the employees
Part time worker (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 15 October 2017
Overworked, awful manager, make you feel like you aren't good enough, expect too much of you, very little training, everyone seems cranky, worked for a few months and had enough, and by far worst place I have ever worked, did not look forward to going in.
Caissière et commis du plancher (Current Employee) – marche central – 10 October 2017
Winners est une compagnie dans laquelle les employes doivent etre polyvalents. Durant la journee, il faut sortir les marchandises de l'entrepot et en meme temps il faut faire la caisse. J'ai appris a travailler en equipe, a bien faire la gestion de mon temps pour finir mon travail peut importe que la journee soit tres achalandee ou non. Cette entreprise donne beaucoup d'importance sur la diversite ethnique, le travail d'equipe, l'integrite, etc. Certains jours, c'est plus difficile de faire tout en meme temps. C'est plaisant de travailler comme une famille.
-Will be trained in several areas -Good relationships can be built between associates -Accommodating management team -Requires the ability to perform physical tasks (i.e. lifting, assembly of furniture, crouching, etc.)
Winners was my first job and I am so happy that I got to work here for 2 years. I gained so much experience that is going to help me in the future for other jobs. The work staff are wonderful people and I got along with every single one of them. I never got tired of working because it was always different never the same routine. I defiantly recommend teens apply here for their first jobs.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Dufferin, ON – 23 September 2017
Overall, working at winners was a great experience for me. I think I learned a lot about myself. I got to meet great people who I gotten to know better on a personal level. A typical day at winners could involve you to do cash, fitting room, greeting and assisting customers and clean up.
