Simple work with minimal assistance from management when pointing out issues.
Management provided minimal assistance when faced with customer questions. Folding clothing and organizing products was simple and straightforward work. I had to do other tasks that I was not trained to do such as stock merchandise and assist customers.
Pros
Work experience
Cons
Minimal training

Very toxic culture
Managent pushes so many projects in the same timeline. That whole IT team suffer . After all hard work there is not a single appreciation email. This company does not value its people

Be prepared for harassment!!
Harassment by coworkers and managers on a daily basis and if you take it to your manager she’ll ask you if you can suck it up, and if you have bills to pay you WILL suck it up!
No matter how perfect you’re at what you’re doing, you won’t get promoted, unless you kiss enough a.....s!

I was proud to start working for the legendary Canadian retailer but that’s looooong gone!!

Loyal employees are being replaced by new part timers to cut costs!
Pros
You get discounts
Cons
The new CEO

Fast-Paced yet fun place to work
A typical day at work depends on the time of day and season. Christmas time is busy and can get fast-paced and a little stressful, however, on a summer day you can expect it to be relaxed. The workplace culture is very fun and everyone is willing to help you with you have trouble with something (i.e. at cash, handling a customer). The hardest part of the job in the footwear department is to remember who you are helping and to make sure you know if someone is already helping the customer since it runs on commission. The management is also very good. You feel looked after and as though they are there to help you and not look down upon you.
Pros
Good hours, fun environment

Employees have to promote credit cards to show good performance, very stressful as many customers are not interested.
A typical day would be, to attend any customers needs, sale credit cards and influence sales . The cash registers are very old and stop working in the middle of a transaction, customers get very frustrated for the system super slow speed and the inability to pay by tapping the post machine as they are so old that it does not have tap. It really needs an upgrade .

Best place to gain customer service experience
It's a nice place to work and learn. Especially for students who want to balance their studies while they work. Teamwork is an essential component so it's easy to getalong with other workers.
