FRONT END LEAD (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB6 August 2018
I was able to advance within the company and yet my pay did not go up with the promotion, it was a fun work environment but there seemed to be some immaturity within the staff as in people not calling in to work when they were sick so it was a hassle finding someone to cover a shift.We were given incentives every month which was nice.
Pros
incentives
Cons
chaotic at times

Best retail job
Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Charlottetown, PE3 July 2018
I've been here for almost 2 years and I still enjoy it. The incentives program makes the job worth it. They feed us on large holidays and have cakes when someone is leaving or coming back. The management is amazing and I love my fellow staff. I've made great friends working there and I genuinely do love working there.
Pros
Free food, employee incentives, benefits, raises, flexible schedules
Cons
Angry customers about things beyond your control

No time to relax, Just work, projects, cash, Inventory, meetings... next day same routine
Lead Associate (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON13 June 2018
Day start with freight forward to floor and top & back stocking
Hurdle time - 15 to 5 min. depends who's are attending it.
Management - great learning in terms of floor planning, profit, execution, review , Projects on your own, word of appreciation and celebration on hurdles.. Great Benefits.
Tiring part is you are on your own on doing projects, on your feet all the time.
Enjoyable part is - you come across good people in work and as customers.
would recommend if your are chosen - "Retail is career for you"
Pros
Benefits and Product Incentives
Cons
less staff leads to work burden

soft side lead (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB31 May 2018
a typical work day, managers do morning huddle and infuse some fun, next reports for down stock are printed and worked on as a team, list will be left to work on, i spend my shift helping customers, helping fellow staff members and completing tasks. it can be hard to complete everything in a shift, the managers are understanding and vary willing to help, having helpful management creates a relaxed and comfortable environment for all.

Sales Associate & RTV Associate (Current Employee) –  Red Deer, AB30 May 2018
Great company to work with, although your never guaranteed hours or full-time because they only offer full-time to managers. Not much room for growth. Kind of a part-time job to make extra money when you have an actual full-time job.

Terrible management, terrible hours
Front End Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Kingston, ON3 May 2018
From the day I was hired I was lied to and lead to believe I would be full time. Scheduling is inconsistent (one week you get 32 hours, the next you get 10 hours) and not at all flexible to the employee's needs.

They don't value hardworking employees, just the ones who suck up to management. The store manager looks for reasons to put you down and never recognises your accomplishments.

Management will sit at their desks playing games on their phones while the few staff members working are trying to help multiple customers at once.

When minimum wage increased, all staff lost their hard earned raises and were only making 10 cents more than newly hired employees.
Pros
Good prices on staff incentive items
Cons
Shifts are either too long or too short and very inconsistent, favouritism is a problem, no benefits, full time, or chance for advancement

Receiving associate (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON29 April 2018
Working far too many hours a week while full time student, even after speaking with manager. Stressful environment lead to a few mental breaks over the course of the month and a half I worked while also in school. I had maybe an hour or two to myself during a typical week - working afternoons/evenings and weekends, while at school the rest of the time.
Pros
None
Cons
Stressful
