Sales Associate (Former Employee) – West Edmonton Mall, AB – 21 January 2019
It wasn't a bad place to work at all, amazing staff. But management needed to be a little bit better because even after I did all the jobs and tasks that needed to be done I was still getting in trouble
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 January 2019
great place to work, got busy at times and it would be hard to keep up with customers but coworkers were always very helpful, closing was the hardest because you were not allowed to go home until everything was perfect
Key Holder (Former Employee) – Crossiron Mills Calgary, AB – 6 January 2019
A very distracting environment to work in from management and other employees to new employees. Lead to believe and reassured I was not hired only for the Christmas season then let go 3 days into the new year.! Selling riped clothing with snags and holes.

i had a lot more opportunities working here than i did working in a larger branded company. It was a great experience with a very friendly environment. The people i worked with were great and i had a lot to learn from my time here.
sales associate (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 September 2018
a good place to work as a part timer but sometimes it can get difficult with the management team, they sometimes are mad or unsatisfied. overall the customers are great, but the hardest part is to maintain the store as only 2 or 3 people are closing.
20% off in store purchases
negative environment, management is always angry or negative.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 8 June 2018
Some days it was enjoyable to work at Fair weather but that was rare. Most days were long and stressful and management was not the best. The best part working retail was the nice customers I would meet.

You just show up. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. Sell. Clean. There's no deviation, that's your job. That's what they pay you to do, that's all you should be doing. There's no room for questions, you know what to do.
Able to balance school and work efficiently, freedom to be creative
Sales Associate and Key Holder (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 27 February 2018
I was able to be creative and use my visual and spacial skills when rearranging the clothes around the store to make the more expensive and popular items attractive to customers as soon as they walk in the store. I was also given a sense of authority because I got to schedule sales associates, complete end reports, and close the store.
1st Key-holder (Current Employee) – Charlottetown, PE – 9 August 2017
Staff at this location struggle to get more hours due to Store manager NOT working full time hours. Great if your a student or just want to pickup a few hours for extra money on the side. Not for someone trying to support self or children.
