Poor work environment
Associate (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON27 May 2018
I have worked for this company last year, the management is corrupt and least concerned. They are not a customer oriented. The employees are NOT at all trained to work in the retail environment. Not an ideal place to work at.
Pros
The salary was okay to pay your bills
Cons
Management is disrespectful towards employees as well as customers

I don’t recommend at all
Cashier (Part-time) (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON29 November 2018
The managers participate in gossip too much - especially the female ones. They don’t know how to treat their employees and as a result the turnover rate is high.
Pros
Free coffee

Horrible management
Lead (Former Employee) –  London, ON10 May 2018
Absolutely no job security at all. Pay is bad and commission works out to barely anything. Management has crazy expectations for the employees so it’s hard to meet goals especially when all the manager does is sit in the office and gossip about employees.
Cons
Horrible management

Do not work here
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 January 2018
I would not recommend working here at all!! Management is completely unfair they never want to do closing shifts! Just sits in the office all day on the phone. There is absolutely no support and that goes for the district manager as well. We are always understaffed and management hires friends and family to work at the stores. Met some great coworkers other than that there are no advantages of working here. The pay is not good commission works out to be nothing on your pay cheque. The manager rarely ever shares the sales goals so you are left guessing
Pros
Great coworkers and free coffee
Cons
Long hours, can’t call in sick, no support from management

Welcome back to highschool!
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON24 February 2018
If you're thinking of working here, don't. I felt like I was back in highschool with the immaturity of management. The manager mocks and makes fun of staff members infront of other staff. They belittle you one day then the next say how "good you're doing" then talks about you behind your back. Unrealistic sales expectations. They promise you so much, but it's all lies. Favoritism is huge in this store and trust me, you know where you stand. Please, don't make the same mistake that I did.
Pros
Close to busses, some co workers were great
Cons
Horrible management, not a great work environment

Terrible working conditions
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON8 October 2017
The worst DM's and Managers! I thought it was just Ottawa, but reading here it seems to be systemic! The whole company is bad! I have never seen so many people quit or get fired at any other place of business! Starting in the morning was how much you all sold the day before, and the manager yelling at you because something did not get done the day before. Never any praise, or pat on the back! Manager bad mouthing staff and taking hours away for other staff!This is not a place to go if you want a career! No advancement at all!
Cons
Pay was terrible

Avoid working for this company.
Sales (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON17 October 2014
Management at any location will tell you what you want to hear, and not follow through with anything they tell you, or promise you.

There is no such thing as full time. If you apply for a "full-time" position, it is just a lure to get you in for an interview. They hire only part-time, and don't ever expect to move within this company. You can raise your sales as much as your can, you can work as hard as you can but you will get no recognition and you won't go anywhere. You will stay in the same place you start in.

At all costs, please avoid working for this company. You will never get raises, and you won't get a promotion, they will always hire outside.

This company is cheap, and will do anything to save the smallest amount of money.
Pros
Short Commute
Cons
Everything else.

Environnement de travail peu productif, manque d'organisation
Référence - Gérant (Former Employee) –  Laval18 March 2018
Journée de travail relativement longue et assez ennuyeuse. Or, le personnel était en général très sympathique. Le manque d'organisation nuisait à la vitesse de travail des employés, jusqu'à affecter leur motivation pour le travail. Le plus difficile était de vouloir être un employer sérieux et évolué au sein de l'entreprise, puisque le travail consciencieux n'était jamais félicité ou même remarqué. Cependant, l'atmosphère au sein des employés était des plus agréable. Il n'y a jamais eu de problème au entre les employés.
Pros
Horaire flexible
Cons
Salaire (comparativement aux concurrents)
