Good management, Pay-bonuses for reaching goals, Friendly staff
Part-time Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 19 April 2019
The Bluenotes location I worked at was rather laid-back but all employees still has the goal to make sales by the end of the day. Bonuses were offered by the company to stores that could sell a certain minimum of products, or to stores who has enough customers sign up for texts and emails. Business was strict with no phones allowed on floor and all drinks and food were required to be kept in the back room which lowered productivity as employees were always darting back for a sip of water on a long shift. One major downside was minimum wage, which was expected as a sales associate position but managers and assistant managers did not receive much of a pay rise when promoted, just received basic insurance from the company on top of guaranteed hours. Otherwise it really depends on the location you work at, as the people who work their really make or break the atmosphere of the job, bluenotes are smaller sized stores with only 2 or 3 people working a standard shift so if you’re not comfortable with your colleagues then the shifts go by painfully slowly.
Small work force, sales bonuses
Minimum wage, harsh sales expectations from smaller stores in the district
