Perfect if You Don't Have Anything Going For You In Life
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON1 January 2019
I worked here for a few months, and despite them saying that they are incredibly flexible about school, they are not. They expect you to come in despite having midterms, or exams.

I also called in sick a couple of times, and was scolded for attempting to find coverage online because apparently it seemed like I "planned to call in sick". A coworker didn't show up for 3 weeks, and only got fired after calling in sick for around the 10th time? A coworker also called in sick once or twice every week, and never got fired, despite them not even trying to find coverage. I should've just not shown up instead of trying to find coverage, maybe I'd still be an employee there.

If you don't mind working for crazy people, or you're looking for a dead-end job, this is the perfect job for you. If you want a job that actually requires a functioning brain, keep looking.
Pros
management is nice to your face
Cons
management throws you under the bus behind your back

Terrible company to work for
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON14 July 2018
This place is a joke. I called in sick a few times because I was having seizures and because I had pneumonia.. They fired me with cause, saying that I was unreliable... I was fired from here once before before too because I wouldn't cover shift on a day that I had an exam.. I got rehired the same day. The gm was having a hissy fit because no one would cover. If you need a job and don't mind working for crazy people, it's a fine place to work.
Pros
Nice managers
Cons
Not enough hours, owner and gm don't care about employees or the store equipment
