No hours, the hours budget is constantly cut back, we never make enough to satisfy Lalonie- the CEO.
Extremely poor wages - no matter what your seniority is! You never do enough.
Your raise is 10 cents/h . I am curious what should I do with it!? Ask Lalonie.
Pros
Nice management
Cons
No hours whatever if 3h/ week means anything

As a manager don’t expect support from your DM
Very disheartening when your dealing with difficult employees and you bring your concerns to your DM over and over and your told they have your back..unfortunately I believed her .nothing could be further from the truth !! Your basically on your own

Fun and pleasent place to work.
Strongest emphasis was on customer service. Responsibility for oversight of marketing, merchandising, and visual presentation were also an integral part of the management position.
Customer demographic is wide and varied and very pleasant to deal with.

Fun place to work!

Over all great place to work. Just not enough hours most weeks
Great people and company to work for. I just need more constant hours. Would stay if I had steady hours, but they change every week and that is not enough for me.

Great place to work with great people to work with.
A typical day starts with review of promos and interacting with clients, finishing with tidying the store. I learned how up-sell things and put together outfits. Management is great, I hear about her, but have never met her. Workplace culture is great, I can't complain. The hardest part of the job is finding things to do. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the clients.

Work okay
It was an okay place to work. Most people friendly to work with. Most of work didn’t hurt your back. Always got your required breaks. Not enough training for cash.

Great Place to work
the managers know what they're doing or who they are sending where you're constantly. Everyone is friendly and enjoys working together. It is very hard though.

Stay away
They treat you like a thief and the management are bullies. They do not treat staff fairly and hostile environment. I thought the go workers were friendly and cared about you but threw you under the bus and talked about you behind your back. The customers were great and treated you great. The clothes are good but you had to put a lot of your own money from wages and stay current with trends so this bites into your pay so your wages go back to northern hence working for way less than minimum wage.

This was the worst experience I had in a work environment
