Retail Sales Associate (Current Employee) – London, ON – 8 February 2018
If you work part time you will be at a huge loss of hours at the start of each year for 2-3 months, there's no system for calling in sick, most of the time either over staffed or understaffed. The people are amazing and have a great attitude, store is kept clean, co workers are very understanding
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, SK – 6 February 2018
Giant tiger was a great place to work at. They took a lot of time in training their managers. They sent us on many training opportunities. Many different depts in the store so you can grow your career with in the store as well. Only left for safety reasons.
Never a dull day. Can grow your career within the location.
Some locations are in scetchy locations. Some armed robberies.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Dunnville, ON – 6 February 2018
I was only hired during the summer when I first started working. This was due to the fact a lot of the full time staff go away and this is their busiest time of year. They keep people right up until the three month probation period, then let them go without valid reason.

Fashion Associate (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 18 January 2018
Amazing first job to have! I learned a lot there. It's a great place and all of my co-workers were beyond amazing. It was hard with the weekly schedule because I wasn't able to plan anything ahead of time. We got long hours (9-8 hours), but we got a long lunch and multiple breaks.
Fashion (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 4 January 2018
Only one great manager and she was forced out by the store manager. Biggest mistake the store made. It is a very toxic place to work. Used to be so much fun but now the staff is negative and depressing
