Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 22 February 2018
Friendly management and staff, however the customers can be extremely difficult and it can be difficult/dangerous to call for help in certain situations. Very few stores have security and patrons can become very aggressive. Most shifts are on call, meaning you have to be ready to work whenever they call you. A lot of physical labour and you are on your feet all day. They will have you working at multiple location across the city,

A lot of different duties with the opportunity to learn. Management great for teaching all aspects of the business. Co-workers were also very supportive and had the team mind set. Very physical job as well as a fair amount of standing. Every day offered both. Fun and energetic group who also found time to laugh and enjoy co-workers and customers.
Good pay, good pension 75% sick pay,extended health benefits...extremely easy work!
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 14 March 2015
The most enjoyable part of the job was counting lots of money & meeting many, many people. The work is all very easy and you get two 15 minute breaks and a half an hour for lunch. Dental is 100%. Medical is covered and an extended health plan for glasses etc. The pension is A1! If you are sick you get 75% of your pay! If you are sick more than 3 days you just have to bring in a medical note. The co-workers are just as good and bad as any other place of work. The management is heartless. They gave me trouble when I had emergency calls to meet my injured mother at the hospital! I worked with a girl who had a 5 and a half hour cancer operation...she didn't even get a card from them! I brought her flowers a few times and she died a year later.
Medical, extended medical, 75% pay if you are sick, pension, high wages, job security!
Heartless management that gives people grief, in times of grief!
