Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 9 June 2018
Commission based company created other people stealing sales and not a nice atmosphere. They expect you to not have a life and if you bring issues up your hours are cut. The pay isnt very good for what they expect you to do and overall unless you work peak shifts you dont make anyclothing credits. Upper management isnt there to support you and they micro manage everything! No room to grow in the company...they would rather hire from the outside than promote on the inside and they do not stand up for their people at all. Would not recommend this company to anyone. Get out while you can.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 23 May 2018
I enjoyed working for Nygard. My supervisor was fantastic. Twice a year during PDC (March and September) work could get very demanding and stressful, but working here was generally smooth. Breaks were strict, Employees receive an amazing discount on clothing. I would work for Nygard again if I had the chance.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Ontario – 19 May 2018
Love my job , love my coworkers and managers. Great place to work. Yes some times the hours suck.but that's with all retail you have your down times. Great loyal customers., Love helping customers find their outfits. Clothing credits are a great help as is the employee discount... Love my job at Nygard.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Nova Scotia – 24 April 2018
I have never worked for a company like this before, so disrespectful towards their employees no wonder no one stays long working here. The district manager is unreal and two faced. This company expects their staff to jump at every little thing . Awful place to work.
If you are self motivated, it can be a great place to work depending on SR Exec you report to. I was giving many opportunities to take on different challenges. But as a former peer said, you need to watch how close you get to the sun.
Highly motivated people can make a difference but very demanding
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Erin Mills, ON – 21 March 2018
Not a good place to work .Stay away. No hrs, management are bullies. Expected to work alone with no break if you work a long shift.Sales goals are too high and not realistic. Lucky if you get one , two shifts a week.
Costumers. Some of the clothing is nice. Coworkers.
You never know whats going to happen. No hours. Min 3 hrs shift if your lu cky.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Camrose, AB – 4 March 2018
The manager here is terrible she have split personality. We have to meet our goal for the day which is impossible. Management don't support the people that is working very hard to meet up with their expectations. Poor salary offer. Keep looking for a better job. There's no career advancement.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Nova Scotia – 18 January 2018
Learned a lot while I worked there from the manager and the assist manager. The district manager is terrible always negative does not even try to work with the store staff. I believe the company would be one hundred percent better with better upper management. Puts way to much stress on the stores and never follows thru on what you are promised when hired.
Good place to work, friendly environment good atmosphere. Great management program, learning and progression. Casual, fun, enjoyable all around job.
Sales Associate (Part-Time) (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 January 2018
I enjoyed working for Nygard due to the clientele which were mostly the elderly. Management at the time was well organized, The hardest part working there was the fitting rooms and the flooring needed to be update
MANAGER (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 19 September 2017
Was fun. To work customers. But upper management did not care about staff or how hard managers worked to make the budgets. Always expect.way to much. Used my truck for different events and never got thanks or compensated for.
Discount on clothes
Hard to get proper days off. Due to lack of hours plus wages not great.
Manager (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 29 August 2017
This is the worst company I have ever worked for. I regret accepting the job I held at their head office. NYGARD has an abusive, unethical, unprofessional and corrupt culture within every single department. They break every possible employment law and they continue to get away with it.
Unpaid overtime is expected on a regular basis for non management roles, below industry standard pay, bonuses are falsely promised, poor leadership and management, employment standards are sub-par
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 18 August 2017
It has been more than 10 years I work in a customer service filed . I learned a lot, To be a part of management I learned how to manage your co worker as friendly team, to make sure the job should be done in a friendly environment . How to be productive. The most enjoyable part of job is to meet different type of people every day and deal with them in their own way to make them happy.
Manager (Former Employee) – Niagara, ON – 17 August 2017
Expect a lot from lower management, company does not give you the tools you need to be successful. if you want them, it comes out of your pocket. Follow ups with superiors were never answer. Money was horrible for what was require. Customers were the best part of the job.
The management and senior management levels of the company do not respect their employees. Many employees have been there for several years and have not received a wage increase. The bonus system is also very poor. Benefits are not bad unless you are a senior level employee, then benefits are much better. Bonus systems are mostly based on company performance and your personal performance levels are done by management. They never give you higher than 80% of your personal performance. The company never "does well" on the bonus so you are lucky if you receive 30% of this allotment.
On the other hand, the people are great to work with. There are quite a few friendly and helpful people there.
One is expected to work a lot of weekends and overtime for nothing. It is just expected. You can not take time in lieu of overtime put in.
Expected overtime, no pay increases in at least 7 years
