Sales in Ontario
on 8 August 2022
It's like any other sales job
I was happy with the team and the people around me for the most part. The sales position is challenging. Dealing with Walmart clientele is a whole different ball game and you need to learn your niche in order to succeed. And every location is going to be different. Covid was brutal for sales and the already poor commission structure made it impossible to get ahead.

Great people and sense of belonging
I’ve worked here for over a year now and love the people I work with. The environment is very friendly and you get to meet some great people. You work very closely with the Walmart staff at my store because we are in the electronics area. You don’t really deal with Walmart managers tho unless your a manager yourself. You learn a lot about all the phones and plans and carriers.

Under-Appreciated by employer, Improper "training",
Wish to work in a stressful environment in a store where you get asked everything but the questions that pertain to your line of work, all while having Walmart employees and management hounding you for not doing *their* tasks? OSL is the company for you. There is little to no recognition for those who work hard, and the "slackers" are often catered to more than the hard working employees. Benefits are terrible, payments for sick leave (or Covid pay) take 3-4 PAYDAYS to come in (roughly 2 months or so), customers have no respect for employees and products with zero to no help from management on the matter (OSL and Walmart), and you are often made out to be the bad guy despite doing everything in your power to help. Electronics associates get 0% commission and 0% discount and there is no incentive to sell nor stay with the company. Years can be spent with them and you still will not get recognized. Cannot recommend this company to anyone, aside from recommending against working for OSL. For recommendations to happen, OSL needs to make BIG changes
Sales Associate in Whitehorse, YT

They won't communicate their expectations with you.
So, a typical day at work involves 1-2 prepaid activations (which are counted at 0.33 towards your targets when compared to postpaid activations) if you're lucky. By and large, you're going to be bored. Most of my time was walking around showing people where other products in the electronics section were.They would not train me on Bell/Virgin Plus activations - yet, somehow expected people to come in and perform activations on these two carriers.Management is inscrutable and the way OSL hires/trains its management is seemingly random. The hardest part of the job is handling the boredom. Thankfully, we didn't do a whole lot of prospecting throughout the store, but I think this is because my own manager didn't seem properly trained despite being talked up by her manager as "a pro".
Electronics & Photo Lab Sales Associate in Lasalle, QC

Chill job until it wasn’t
The customers in Lasalle are 50/50. You either get a gem or an entitled francophone. The pay there was great in beginning as a first job getting 15.15$ but after 3 years of working it only raised to 15.45$ despite me being the best one there. In first two years it never went up the salary. I had to demand for a raise. The longer you work there the more workload they give you with no compensation in wage. I don’t know if management was bad at recruiting but almost every new hire was either lazy or they were clueless. The job itself is fairly easy and but motivation to strive is lacking(probably why the new recruits didn’t do much).
