Very boring. Sometimes you have to stay in one spot doing your designated task for 4-5 hours straight. Very little training but high expectations that you’ll know how to do something or work their computer system just on your own. Poor management. Not friendly work environment. Unprofessional and rude owner

My experience at OUAC was both stressful and unnecessarily heated at all times. The manager at my location was verbally abusive and manipulative other new and old hires, and had no respect for company rules (ie. bringing her kids in to do our jobs). Would not recommend.

As with any retail position, the hardest part of the job would be difficult customers and fellow coworkers who weren't working as hard as the others. Management was always attentive to listen and resolve issues employees had with customers or fellow coworkers and the work environment was always happy and amazing to work in.

Part time job while working through NAIT. Staff was friendly, and a big change of pace compared to fast food. If you are looking for a part time job, and to learn some skills that may be useful if you want to have kids, look no further.

The hours are flexible, the staff are amazing, and no matter how busy or short staffed they are, your family comes first. Highly recommend working there.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Having to work weekends, but not all

Great friendly staff and great customers however management is terrible!! Owner is always moody and cranky and taking it out on employees even in front of customers. Very unappreciative of their employees and their hard work. Very unprofessional and have no clue on how to run a business.

A great place to work, easy to balance school and working here as you don't have to take work home. The ownership and management is very well rounded and amazing to work for.

So much to do in a day. It’s exhausting. No training in place. You are just expected to know what to do all the time. Owner and assistant manager are family so you’ll never get your opinion heard. Just a bad company to work for. Unless you want to work like a dog for min wage. And she cheats her employees out of holiday pay!! If she can pay you on time or not screw up payroll

The store has no staff. When managers are hired they are treated horribly and have to do everything with out pay. They managers quit and we get stuck with doing everything else. Owners don't care about us staff or customers. Owners tell us to do two different things at once and if you arent doing what the wife asks then she gets mad and if you don't do what the husband asks he gets mad. This is not a happy place to work. The only good thing was our manager that had our back but she got fed up burnt out and quit. Stay far away from here the minimum wage isn't worth it

Working at OUAC was always fun because everyday was different. It was amazing being able to see the regulars and having them know you by name (even though we wore name tags) and being able to help them out to the best of your ability to make sure their experience with OUAC was a good one and they wanted to come back. One of the hardest parts of the job was not being able to help someone find what they needed because we either didint have the item in stock or we just didn't carry the item they were searching for and the most enjoyable was getting to see all the smiles on the kids faces when they checked out!
Pros
fun, friendly
Cons
long hours
