Easy job for those who love shopping
Fulfillment Associate (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 February 2020
Easy job where you pick, pack and ship. Depending on the location, some are more fast-paced than others. No room for advancement as people generally stay in the same position. Great part-time job if you need extra cash, not worth it if you need a full-time salary as there aren't many unless you get a hired for a higher position within the company. Fun to shop for other people as you get to shop around the store based on the orders received, but can be tedious and boring at the same time.

Not a bad place to start your career
DIOR BEAUTY ADVISOR (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 January 2020
first of all there is lots of pressure if you want to work there as a commission based; even tho as a regular sales person the pay range is so low, you can't even effort you bills
but it not a bad place if you want to work for a short time and put it in your resume as a growing step for your next job

Sales Associate/ Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Xfdvb11 January 2020
When it comes to fringe benefits at work, some employers choose to put their money where your mouth is. Having an on-site cafe can be a boon for businesses -- and when the employer is footing the bill, it's a boon for you too. If your workplace has an on-site cafe, consider yourself lucky. If they don't, give them some reasons to consider adding one.

Don’t waste your time.
VIsual Presentation associate (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC5 December 2019
When Hudson’s Bay looses money instead of thinking about how to make more IE. improving customer experience, re-examining their buys, investing in stores, equipment, technology, employees. They look at what can be taken away to save money. IE. job cuts, degradation of benefits, closing stores.

The plus side: to get a job here you pretty much just have to be alive....that’s it!

Good place for part-time work
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Kamloops, BC21 November 2019
Shifts typically consist of helping customers with purchases or answering their questions, tidying up the store and putting out stock. Management was friendly and approachable and emphasized making customers happy and promoting teamwork. The hardest part of the job was learning how to operate a cash register and figuring out where products are, but colleagues are more than happy to lend a hand if you get stuck. Overall, it's a good place for a part-time job if you're a student as they offer flexible scheduling. However, the pay isn't great and the union regulates when staff get raises, so I wouldn't recommend working there full-time unless you can get a promotion.

Unfair/ bad management
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  West Vancouver, BC4 November 2019
The management is so bad, the salary to compare to the job that you’re doing is so unfair. No room for improvement and it’s so stressful place. And it’s no way to complain or talk to the HR or management

A very good place
JEWLERY SALES PERSON (Former Employee) –  North York, ON11 September 2019
I worked for about a year, liked the employees and managers. wasn’t boring for me, all the time there are different things to do. Great discounts for employees
But there is no benefits for part time employees.
Some time they’re under staffed or they schedule less people so there’re lots to do.

Fun work place
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB11 September 2019
The work environment is pretty good. Easy going and lots to learn about customer service. My manager has been great and my coworkers are supportive and fun to work with. The pay is minimum wage and no great benefits for part timers.

But that being said I gained good customer work experience and now I am gonna start working with a dream company of mine.

It gave me the work exposure and experience required on customer service.

Job is okay
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  London, ON5 September 2019
This was not the worst job I’ve ever had but the company cares SO MUCH about us getting customers to sign for credit cards I feel like they’d rather have a messy store then get no HBC credit card applicants. Honestly if you’re good at signing up people for credit cards you can get away with being lazy because they’ll get off your back and praise you for it but if you don’t really get them but are a hard worker and clean up the store they don’t really care about you and you’ll probably get a talking to on why you’re struggling to sign people up for cards . The hours are also really unpredictable now a days. Very under staffed. So if you really need the money I wouldn’t make this a first option because after training hours you’ll barley get hours especially after January. Overall it’s an ok job I tolerated it for 4 years and I am a student

Ps: you need the HBC MasterCard in order to get your employee discount. That’s how desperate this company is for people to get their credit cards.

Sales (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON21 August 2018
The company provides benefits even to part time workers. However the on call positions does overlap with some of the timings provided by you and one can be unable to do it sometimes.
