Merchandise Operations Associate (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 March 2019
This company has great work life balance and good discounts for employees. Upper management is not focused on career growth and development. This is a big company so this information is subjective. Nepotism at it's best.
productive place to work, with good learning opportunities
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Nepean, ON – 19 March 2019
You get to meet and interact with different customers, you learn something new every day, the management system is decentralized, so you get to make decisions about certain things by yourself, good growth opportunity.
HR Coordinator, Benefits and Executive Services (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 14 March 2019
A typical day at work would involve resolving benefit related issues or answer day to day inquiries. It would also include completing other tasks such as, paying invoices, processing changes within the HRIS system, and more. I have learned quite a lot working at HBC, however, the most interesting thing that I have learned would be Reporting and filtering and auditing data reports with the help of advanced Excel formulas. Also, learned how to manage several tasks at once and ensuring everything is completed in a timely manner.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 12 March 2019
The most enjoyable part of the job is working with people from different background. They are looking for people have teamwork attitude, and at the same hiring someone want have time to take care families.
Working for this HUGE company makes you only feel like a servant, a number. Basically coming in to work and having a department manager telling you what to do and what the objectives are is pretty stressful. Cleaning the store was the main focus there, and passing customers at the cash. I was in the jewellery department, and clients were always asking for prices and discounts knowing where they came to shop it was very irritating. I felt like a clerk instead of a sale representing.
Weak Management- driving the company to Bankruptcy
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 March 2019
I worked in finance department and Management at HBC is too weak. Higher Management plays their own game and spend resources in the worst possible manner.
Also they give financial analyst title easily but the work you do in Administrative. All the core accounting and finance is done in offshore team, on shore employee just sit and blindly approve files with no knowledge
Company and HR creates good policies, but allocation and decision making Management take shortcuts to show good numbers. 7 finance employees transferred and 2 resigned within a year.
good store discount and sample sale
bad management, irresponsible leaders drivings department to a hole
Cash Office Associate (part-time) (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 7 March 2019
Management is caring and interested in the welfare of the employees Culture is retail and the management was sales results hardest part of the job is only part time hours are scheduled in my department. People that work at this store are friendly and positive nature. Making come to work enjoyable.

SEASONAL SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 March 2019
Hudsons Bay is a great place to work at when you want to get some experience as a young adult. There are great staff and the management is really nice and helpful you could potentially grow within the brand
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 27 February 2019
Nothing but good things to say about HBC. The training they provide to become a manager is fantastic. The care about their employees and there are unlimited amount of job opportunities within the company.
soul-sucking retail with high maintenance customers
Customer Service and Switchboard Consultant (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 26 February 2019
The management made it clear they had very little consideration for the employees under them, and the customers were some of the worst people I've experienced in many years of customer service. The bridal registry program was complicated and made for very stressed shoppers who took it out on the staff. There was very little to no support from management when customers were unsatisfied, and resulted in some volatile situations.
Asset Protection Investigator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 February 2019
Great place to work, a lot of good opportunities. It is never a boring way at work, you never know what to expect when coming to work. If you want to become an officer this is a great learning experience.
