My time at Deserres was good, and I would have likely stayed on for another year or two if my store hadn't closed. I don't care personally for the upper-level management, but all of my coworkers were great and I got along well with everyone. It's great if you're a student or a young person who wants to balance work and art school since the schedules were always really flexible and I got free/cheap art supplies a lot. However, if you're looking for full-time work or you have large payments, the salary probably won't cut it and if you level up to middle management you can get a ton of work dumped on you that's not worth the pay bump. I had a good enough time overall.

Il est très agréable de travailler chez Deserres, les employés sont tous sympathique et dynamiques. Par contre, pour toutes nos connaissances que nous développons au fil du temps, le salaire n'est pas juste.

Toujours se faire demander plus par la direction, sans jamais recevoir de reconnaissances ou une augmentation en fonction de ses performances.
Pros

Cons
Salaire, les évaluations de rendement, culture d'entreprise, manque de reconnaissance, incohérence de la direction.

C'est les équipes qui y travaillent qui apportent le meilleur au quotidien. Je crois que les coupures ne sont pas toujours fait au bon endroit et que si le salaire et les conditions seraient un peu mieux; cela assurerait de l'expertise en conseillers et de la stabilité dans la rétention du personnel.
Merci
Pros
Carte employé
Cons
Longues heures de travail

You get to do collaborative art projects to show customers who are unfamiliar with the art. People are generally very kind to you. Management is fantastic and works accordingly to your schedule.

if you're lucky enough to get a good manager and good coworkers, this place could be bearable if you don't depend on it for a living.

they brag about being a family-owned business but want to be hyper corporate marketing like Starbucks, which is the exact opposite way to market to their target customers and they don't do it very well.


they are a say one thing, do another kind of place. I would not recommend long term employment here.
Cons
no benefits, no raises, min wage, hypocritical business practices, poor marketing

A decent, fun place to work. Minimum wage, but so is most retail. Friendly atmosphere and encouraging managment. Very few problems, probably my favourite retail job I've had so far.
Pros
discounts on art supplies, creative space
Cons
minimum wage

Fun store if you like art! Customers are generally great. Co-workers are great, too! Biggest problem is management, which does not value or respect their employees. Fear-based work environment coming from the top, down. Combination of no commission and minimum wage = low incentive to make big sales. Also, be prepared for only one half break for an 8.5 hour shift. So much would be improved by attitude of management, for both customer and employee experience. Not much room for advancement.

BUT! On the good side, got lots of hours!

L'ambiance est agréable et les employés aussi. La seule chose étant qu'il y a de moins en moins de clients donc de moins en moins d'heures à donner. Il est facile de grimper dans la compagnie par contre et d'avoir plusieurs formations. Par contre peu importe le poste, les salaires sont moindre
Pros
Opportunité de grimper
Cons
Heures de travail et salaire

I think working at DeSerres was a great experience as a summer student. I learnt how to use the cash, talk to different clients and vocabulary about the art industry.

I loved working at DeSerres! I worked with people whom I still call friends. Management was understanding, kind and flexible. When I began I didn't have a lot of knowledge beyond the art materials I used but as I worked there I was able to learn and use what I learned to help customers and myself as an artist. It was a very rewarding job!

Work starts in the afternoon, roughly at the time of my typical afternoon class start. Responsibilities consists of stocking up items onto shelves and help out customer service. The main thing that I learned in my time there is how a typical retail shop works from the perspective of a co-op student. The workplace's culture is oriented in arts & crafts seeing as the customers of the store are (or planning to be) workers of the Art Industry and hobbyists of the visual arts. The one thing I would describe as the most difficult part of the job is handling customer service, the reason being is my lack of knowledge on the items the store sells. The biggest highlight in my time as a co-op student in Deserres is discovering wonderful items sold in the store and finding more respect for retail stores and it's workers.
Pros
low-key window shopping
Cons
hours seemingly longer than they should be

Étant passionnée par le domaine des arts visuels, pratiquant - à l'occasion - le dessin, mais n'étant pas étudiante dans ce domaine, j'ai été peu considérée lors de mon emploi en tant que caissière dans cette entreprise.


Cependant, j'ai remarqué la belle complicité qui régnait entre les employé(e)s (étudiants en art médiatique et/ou en histoire de l'art ) et la direction.
Pros
40 % de rabais sur nos achats lors de nos quarts de travail (ou au moment de quitter notre quart)
Cons
Trop longues pauses dîner, l'entreprise ne peut pas garantir le nombre d'hrs/sem. qu'elle pourra t'offrir, ce n'est pas un emploi stable.

Terrible management that fired me after I could not mop the floors with my broken wrist. I was late by one minute because I took public transportation at the time and got screamed at for that. Don't waste your time with this dump..
Pros
nothing
Cons
everything.
