Very high pressure sales environment
Constant sales target haranguing by manager

Very huge store to clean & maintain (almost a full-time job)

A retailer of this size & scope should have hand held technology vs. a few stations scattered around the store to check prices, inventory & availability of a huge selection of products.

A lot of time is wasted walking to & fro - front to back stockroom resulting in poor customer satisfaction & employee dissatisfaction!

Poor staff communication- no paid time for group meetings

No professional product knowledge key training by suppliers. Learning is done on the fly with tomes of paper bases product knowledge which is poorly written & constructed.fly & reading tones of badly written & constructed

Unhealthy workplace
- Management gossips behind your back to other employees and bully you if you do not make the number sales they ask you too
- Unhealthy and toxic environment

- Called me in to work on a day when I had a 103 degree fever

- No attention to employee safety caused me to get ill and go to the hospital

- No care for environment or sustainability

- Profanity and verbal harassment towards me and other employees on a daily basis

Management sucks
Over the course of the time I was there, the boss was the worst thing I could say. There is no point of working here if the boss overworks you and yet expects you to know everything by the first week. One of the coworkers I had in stock applied for part time, and yet she was working 40 hours a week and yet she only get announced employee of the month and got a 5 dollar discount for any item in the store. How generous of them.
The boss had a singular favorite, and that person followed her from store to store for 5 years. AKA this guy was simping for someone that he actually hated. Overall I don't really recommend working here if you don't want to step on eggshells every second you work there.

Horrible management
Loved my co-workers, the manager was a bully and made young employees cry. She would make us sweep and mop the entire warehouse and complain it wasn’t good enough. Her mood was all over the place. It was somewhat scary not knowing what kind of mood she would be in. She was like a drill sergeant, you always felt uncomfortable when she was around. The schedules went up on Thursdays for the next week starting Sunday. She praised us for our hard work, they also waste so much paper and don’t recycle.




next week starting Sunday.

The CEO is killing the company
The CEO is the worst, he doesn’t respect or appreciate the people that work for him. Egocentric and full of himself, he doesn’t listen to reason. The people who are still there because they haven’t found something better or too afraid to start fresh.

Nice place to work, money isn't there however
Love the people I work with and I am enthusiastic about the products and services offered. Only complaint I have is that they do not offer adequate compensation for the expectations of work. Salary does not meet cost of living in Ontario.

Disappointed in Upper Management
The job itself was great; I had amazing coworkers and I loved the clientele. However, upper management and HR do not have your back and, even though serious issues were raised, nothing was done. There is a complete disconnect between them and the front line workers. The job is not difficult, though the stress level depends on the store manager. It appeared that there might be room to grow but it was promised and taken away multiple times. I think certain stores would be ok to work at but others, not so much.

Excellent family owned business where you matter
After working for conglomerates, it’s such a refreshing change working for a family owned private company. You have a massive part to play towards the success of the company. Respected for efforts and values. It’s nice to work for a company that not only values its customers but also its employees
Pros
Lunches, drinks, anything that provides a great experience to be shared with customers
Cons
Longer days and hours.

Collègues de travail fantastiques
Travailler au Linen Chest est une expérience enrichissante bien que demandante. Les standards sont hauts, mais encore là, cela est propre à la qualité du service requis. Lorsqu'un client entre dans ce magasin, il s'attend à un service hors pair. Les seuls points négatifs sont la gestion du magasin en soi, la gestion des horaires et le salaire. Si vous êtes à la recherche de défis, cet emploi est pour vous. De plus, une richesse culturelle vous sera enseigner dans tous les domaines de la maison concernées, c'est-à-dire la cuisine, la salle de bain, la literie, etc.
Pros

Fast paced environment
Fast paced environment. No room for error, a lot is expected of employees. Pleasant staff to work along side with, not too competitive of an environment. Lots of paper waste

Great people
Typical day at work is greeting and helping customers for the most part. On quiet days there was tidying up and putting stock away, etc.
The employees have great work relationships, making a long day enjoyable.
