The management really encouraged you to be your best, and when they notice potential they're quick to act on it. The coworkers who were long term were friendly and helpful.

Worst job ever.

Customers were actually great , management and other staff are the problem. No overtime even if you work 16 hours straight. No opportunity for advancement. Generally a bad environment with no support.

Pros

Free coffee or slurpees, met lots of great customers.

Cons

Everything else

Bad Managment

The manager at the store actually wanted you to be confrontational with customers . During covid we were told not to say anything to customers not wearing a mask while there was a mandatory mask mandate , just told us to serve them quickly. No concern for staff or customers we were all told how easy it was to replace us.

Pros

none.

Cons

no overtime pay, lots of last minute schedule changes, back to back shifts (get off at 11pm work next morning at 6am)

Horrible, unsafe, and belittling environment

The boss abused the employees, and the patrons were no better. I wasn't allowed to ban customers even when they harassed me. Boss made multiple advances and took advantage of my innocence as a 17 year old kid, unable to stand up for myself.

Pros

Easy, good tips

Cons

Unsafe, toxic

Don’t work at valleyview.

I worked for husky for 3 years and at all three locations in Kamloops. The “Paul lake” husky was more of a fast paced environment, “Sahali” husky was more chill and had great management, but the “Valleyview” husky was terrible. The manager (in my experience) was/is a bully. The coworkers I had were all pretty good and I made some good friends. Plenty of incentives throughout the year for gift cards plus any mystery shops you pass you got a chance to get like 50-100 dollars I think? Cleaning was easy enough but when we switched to a new owner it was clear all he cared about was making money and didn’t care about the employees, even going as far as threatening my job security when I failed my first mystery shop under his ownership. I’ve seen plenty of good employees that I had worked with leave because the owner wasn’t that great. I wouldn’t recommend working at the huskys in Kamloops unless you’re okay with the micromanagement of the boss.

Pros

Some cool people.

Cons

Owner doesn’t care about employees.

Busy, kinda of cramped and small. Enjoyed the regulars that came in. Hours we’re flexible and we’re open late. Would recommend to a younger high school student

as a pipe fitter when I worked there I found it a good a great job.

As my experience working there in the 90,s it was a great job and well paying job. Since then I have work shutdowns the were very well paying jobs. A maintenance job would be a good fit

Pros

Good safe working coditions

Cons

Crude oil smell

Most of the people are good to work with.

Not everyone wanted to contribute fully, but as long as you do your job it will be a good place to work. I enjoyed working in different areas rather than being stuck behind the cash register.

Great working environment and fun atmosphere

Working at husky felt like a great environment to work at because the management would treat you like family and will always ask if you have had your break or lunch yet, and on top of that there were just coworkers to work alongside, the would never be rude to one another but they would always try to help each other out.

Fast Paced Environment

I really enjoyed working at Husky but as I had to move to better my sons life I then came back after 5months. My Best Friend passed away and I went into slight depression. My employer didn't seem to understand my situation. As a single mom they also didn't seem to understand that I hasd to tend to my sons well being. Do miss the friends I have made at Husky as I helped out at all 4 stores when needed.
