Amazing Coworkers, Disaster Management

Most people working as sales associate are super kind and willing to help you learn, main reason I stayed on so long. Management was constantly changing after my initial hiring manager retired, it was a disaster. Barely got any hours or communication, there were two managers I never even meet when actively working.

Not great

Seems like a good place but you are treated badly and layoffs happen constantly, hard to stay long term. They only seek profit and don’t mind repercussions.

Nice place to work though the standing isn’t fun but the managers are really nice and easy going.The store view is nice but the job is for student mostly.

Great place for students to work, however low salary

I worked at The Bay for 5 years, it was a great student job that was quite flexible in terms of hours. The main reason I left was due to the salary, which was minimum wage even after my 5 years.


Flexible hours, great team, good learning aspects

Just ok

Poor company culture, customers asking ridiculously stupid questions; no logic applied to working strategies; sometimes you wonder what the clowns at head office even do

Good job for students

Easy going job for students looking to work part-time. Management needs some improvement. The job gets mundane if you’re assigned the same tasks on consecutive days.

Fun and Friendly Enviroment

Management is very nice and considerate and the employees there are nice as well. Can get busy at times but the managers are hardworking and help with managing the rush.

Great Company - Pay not so competitive

The company was pretty fun to work at, but that also depends on coworkers because I had amazing coworkers that made it better. For such a big company, the pay was not very competitive though, there were definitely places that paid more. Also became inflexible towards the end (this note is for students), and wouldn't allow a reduction in hours for school.

Management is nice

The management is nice and supportive but the co workers are rude and judgy.No benefits, no appreciation , nothing to acknowledge the efforts of the employees. They just say thank you . That’s it .

Overall positive experience, but stressful at times

Lots of things had to be learnt on the job, as for training they just threw you out on the floor (most of the time with an experienced associate but sometimes not). There are many circumstantial procedures (special types of sales, promotional events) without a designated space to go for that information, this made it very stressful at times. Managers were always supportive when asked though.

Hudson’s bay has a great environment, the job itself tends to be stressful due to customers, but it’ll always be like this in any retail related jobs.

I’m happy I decided to apply here and got accepted, it’s very inclusive and most of the employees are very nice people as well as the management, wouldn’t think I’d be staying here for longer than expected. :)

Productive fun place to work

It was a great experience while I was there, the culture was really great! Most people had been working there for years and years. They started having issues some years back, otherwise it was a great experience.

The worst place to work

The managers really don’t care about you as a person, the give you no guidance, I was not trained to do anything, and often got yelled at. The employees discount only applies if you get the companies credit card

Okay for a first job

The team was actually really nice but the store puts a lot of pressure on the employees to make credit cards and point cards. It’s a good company to start at as a student but it’s minimum wage.

Not worth your time

The co workers could be very mean to you, judgmental, lack of sympathy and teamwork.Do not recommend to work here. Good luck with your lower back for standing 8+ hours every day on the hard cement ground.

Chill workplace but no commission

Management definitely has their favorites so its hard to get proper hours, on top of that you get paid minimum wage with zero commission on the sales you make.
