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.

Un travail de commis caissi√®re agr√©able, pas trop demandant ou stressant. L'√©quipe de gestion en magasin √©tait g√©niale, tr√®s √† l'√©coute et motivante MAIS! Je dois donne une mauvaise note pour la culture d'entreprise. D'abord, monsieur DeSerres est pass√© au magasin en personne et n'a salu√© aucuns des employ√©s, nous a presque regard√© avec d√©dain. Ensuite, le mat√©riel ab√ģm√© ou manquant (par exemple, un crayon vol√© dans une boite de crayons), sera d√©truit et jet√© √† la poubelle. Je comprends pourquoi on ne le donne pas aux employ√©s, mais ils pourraient le donner √† des √©coles ou des organismes de charit√© non? Voir les poubelles pleines de crayons parfaitement utilisables bris√©s en deux ou de papier de tr√®s haute qualit√© d√©chir√© en morceaux parcequ'il √©tait l√©g√®rement froiss√©...Ce n'est pas motivant du tout. Un tel gaspillage en 2020, c'est inacceptable.
Pros
équipe motivante, rabais sur les produits, travail facile
Cons
Gaspillage, pauses calculée à la seconde

Deserres est une belle petite entreprise québécoise qui on a coeur leur clientèle. Cependant, il n'avance pas à la même vitesse que leur compétiteur niveau technologique et tendance du moment. De plus, il faut vraiment aimer le travail en sois car le salaire et la reconnaissance des acquis n'y es pas du tout.
Pros
Belle esprit d'équipe, belle valeur d'entreprise
Cons
Le salaire loin d'être compétitif, gestion à sens unique

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
Les rabais
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

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!
