Productive work environment with positive co workers
sales associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 November 2018
With a welcoming and easy going environment at Eddie Bauer, it made it fun to learn and grow skills that now help me in my day to day life such as; betterment in communication skills with customers and people in general, and being surrounded by managers and coworkers with goal oriented mindsets advocates for success. The management at Eddie Bauer is outstanding. Working just as hard or harder than the people they managed, the managing team gained my respect instantly and made it all the better to work alongside them. For me personally I did not find any part of this job that was necessarily hard that could not be easily taught to me in an efficient manner.

It was a fabulous job to have during the school year. Flexible working hours, fun place to be and great training programs to set their employees up for success. Would recommend to anyone looking for a PT job while in school.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Moncton, NB – 11 September 2018
Great place to work, when I arrived management staff was about 3 weeks old, they were great people to work with and would even stay in touch out of work, The store & co managers were very friendly and caring, which made the work experience a lot greater, the work environment like any retail job could be stressful at times, but everyone was helping out each other.
The downside was the hours, they had strict hour restrictions from corporate which made it tough for the staff to get the hours they wanted and was the reason I had to leave. another one was no commission they would push us to sell a lot but we didn't really have rewards for our hard work.
I recommend this job for anyone who is looking for a good environment to work in the retail department with a nice and caring staff.

Eddie Bauer is very competitive place to work with set goals every day. Always something to do either talking to customers or folding clothes. The people that work there are very friendly and always nice to talk to which is needed for slow nights.

Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 March 2018
Terrible job. Management demeaned coworkers and demoted assistant managers to regular sales associates (after they had already been trained) It was horrible for morale. Overall, not a fun experience, I worked there for a couple of months, it would've been better elsewhere.
Retail Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 January 2018
Every day that I go to work I am able to meet and help new, interesting people. Whether they are in a hurry or browsing for a new retail item, every individual showcases how diverse and exciting the society we live in can be.
Part-time Associate (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 9 November 2017
Excellent co-workers and customers. Product is high-end and semi-affordable, which makes it easy to sell to customers. Hardest part: Difficult customers, product inventory, and merchandising Best Part: Customers are excellent. Co-workers are excellent, hours are great (mall hours 9-9).
Thoroughly enjoyed working with my team and putting a smile on customers faces while selling excellent products.

I was lucky to get two shifts a week and they would never be longer than 3 hours each; thats what happens when you have as many managers as part time workers. Not only that but the store manager was quite rude.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 13 May 2017
I felt like part of the team from the first day. The managers really invested time into each sales associate to make sure we were comfortable with the job. Whenever we had a floor move to do each season we would make a party out of it.
Co Manager (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 10 April 2017
A typical day at work would start off with me checking emails, looking at the sales of the day before, looking at each guides performance and making out the schedule and each persons goals and responsibilities.
Uphold our standards, restock the sales floor, replenish, receive stock. Most importantly, serve customers.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 5 April 2017
Lots of resources to learn various departments and areas of the store. Great culture and atmosphere. Quality product that makes sales easy. Lots of pressure from upper management, however lots of resources to help if you get stuck. Also benefits are great. However, company does need to make sure that if you are promoted you get placed with a new sales team and needs to ensure that training schedules for new positions are followed through.
