A lot of work for little recognition
Gestionnaire et associée aux ventes (Former Employee) –  Terrebonne, QC8 February 2019
Learned everything there is to know about retail/management. The training is on point. However, even when doing more than asked it is hard to feel appreciated and there is almost no recognition.

Poor work environment
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB5 February 2019
Company has little to no compassion for employees that are working at store level. They have very high expectations for employees with very little rewards given. To receive any sort of bonus you have to achieve a high percent of your sales goal (125%+). They have a black out period during the holidays, so you are not allowed any time off, and are expected to work the entire way through.

They also have super low wages compared to other companies..
Pros
Clothing discount at Dynamite and Garage

Stressful environment
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC22 January 2019
The manager was not at all understanding. Being a part time student you can’t be there whenever they “need” you. Having said so you actually have to listen for going to school and not finding time for the store, because honestly they need you 24*7. Then there’s the issue of wearing just dynamite clothing. Which honestly isn’t that good but costly, so when once I was buying some pants, the manager literally said to my face “ you can’t buy that, I won’t allow you to wear it here”. Then there was the MOD! She was way too attitudic! Another MOD literally went to the manager with the complaint that she saw me talking on the sales floor with another employee. And because I was new, she scolded me and let the another employee go. The manager won’t listen to you even if you have an exam, according to her, the job is more important!
Pros
Pay you overtime
Cons
Poor management, long hours, no one to listen to you

Bonne entreprise pour travailler en retail
Sales Planning Analyst (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC2 January 2019
Bonne entreprise pour débuter une carrière mais le turnover des employés est très important, ce qui laisse présumer d'autres problématiques telles que la gestion de l'humain et les conditions de travail.
Pros
Beaux locaux, restauration sur place
Cons
Assurances maladies

Great job to work with school. Can balance going to school and work with ease. Developed life long friendships. Small team leads to better team building and possibility of transfers.

Ambiance lourde, pression et pas de stabilité
3ieme clé (Former Employee) –  Montérégie, QC18 November 2018
Horaires changent parfois moins de 24h à l’avance. Obligés à rester tard le soir ou à rentrer plus tôt. Aucun talon de paie fourni aux employés. Pression des superviseurs, jamais assez.
très déçue de cette compagnie qui parait si bien de l’extérieur. Axé sur les ventes, les employés s’y sentent comme un numéro seulement...

Ok pour un temps partiel durant les études mais sans plus..
Pros
Assurances et avantages sociaux, rabais employé
Cons
Salaire, ambiance, pression, horaires trop changeants dernière minute

Bonne compagnie pour travail étudiant

Associate Manager (Former Employee) –  Oshawa, ON4 September 2018
I wouldn't recommend working for this company if you would like to grow within a company. Head office was probably the main reason why they lost 10 sore managers in the same year.

Not worth it
Manager (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON20 August 2018
I worked for this company for 2 years as a manager and it is one of the most toxic companies I’ve ever worked for. Upper district managers have favourites in the company and will ensure those people succeed above people who genuinely work so hard. The managers who have taken over some stores now are incompetent and treat their staff poorly. I would never recommend working here.
Pros
discount
Cons
Everything else

Okay
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB31 July 2018
Little difficult to understand expectations. Some problems with short staff and pay is not sufficient. However it's good for a first job and good for learning good customer service skills.

Review of Groupe Dynamite
Retail & Sales (Current Employee) –  Burlington, ON27 July 2018
Great company to work with/for. Company cares for their girls and wants to make sure they are safe and heard/understood/validated.
Some minor improvements could be done such as screening for management, advancements in job opportunities, more breaks, etc. Great girls to work with. Very supportive management team. Hardest part of the job is getting rejections by customers but that can be easily overcome with giving promotions to keep them coming back. The most enjoyable part of the job is spending one-on-one time with customers on slow days. Making personal connections with people and making them feel good in the clothing they choose makes the job that much better.
Pros
Store sales contests to win prizes
Cons
Limited extended sizes available in store

Great People, Horrible Environment
Jr Product Manager (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC26 July 2018
Revolving door - especially upper management, which trickles down to the rest of the employees. They keep losing top talent due to the fact that there's zero room for growth.

Équipe de travail comme nul part ailleurs
Coordonnatrice à l'importation (Current Employee) –  Montréal-Ouest, QC11 July 2018
Une journée typique chez Dynamite est pleine de surprises et toujours dynamiques ! J'ai eu la chance de côtoyer des personnes extraordinaires qui m'ont faits grandir et qui ont su exploiter mon potentiel au maximum. J'ai pu vraiment apprendre à me connaitre et à apprendre de managers exceptionnels. Au poste de coordonnatrice d'importation les défis sont principalement les changements de directions constante, mais ce défi en vaut la peine parce que lorsqu'on réussit à arranger certains problèmes de livraison c'est gratifiant.
Pros
Un lieux de travail encourageant la créativité
Cons
Ambiance de travail difficile dû à la grande pression
