Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Saskatchewan – 26 August 2018
My time there was very good. The staff members were very friendly and positive. The only downside was the Management. Sometimes not being professional to staff and customers, leaving the cashiers with upset customers. Luckily we were allowed to give 10-20% discounts and found myself giving discounts more often due to poor management. Luckily most of the time every problem could easily be overcome with a couple words exchanged and an apology, most of the time leaving the customer better then when the came up to the counter. Discounts were reasonable and environment was hard working.
Occasional free lunch, discount and 1 hour lunch breaks
I enjoyed working here. Great bunch of people to work with.
Receiver/Shipper (Former Employee) – Lacombe, AB – 1 August 2018
A typical day of work was never really typical. That's what I really loved about it. It was never the same. At the time I was working there, we had trucks come every 4 business days. That meant in the days between then and the next truck, all pallets had to be received and put out into the store. I learned how to be very quick and organized. While receiving everything on the pallets I also had to keep track of special orders and what was ordered so it didn't get put out into the store. The manager was very patient and explained things very well. He was a lot of fun to work with and he helped me a lot. I would have to say the hardest part of the job would be unloading the trucks so early in the morning, especially in the winter when it was so cold. It usually took at least half an hour to unload a truck. The most enjoyable part of the job? Honestly, everything. I still miss that job.
Peavey mart is an ok place to work if you just out of high school.

Peavey Mart is an OK place to work if you just out of high school. or if you just looking for something to keep you busy, pass the time by. I would recommend Peavey Mart if you just need a part time job.

I have been working at Peavey for almost 3 years and I overall enjoy my job. Employee's are friendly and fun to be around, they are growing as a company and a lot have changes have happened and continue to happen which I feel will make it a better place for employee's and shoppers.
Sales (Former Employee) – Swan River, MB – 4 May 2018
Did everything you can think of in a retail store that wasn't management. Stocked shelves, cashier, worked in the outside section (yard) cleaning, helping customers, managing inventory, building equipment and products. I was the youngest and most fit so any lifting or planograms I would generally do. Trained new staff as well. Worked almost every weekend, was hard to get any time off and the manager was never at the store which led to major issues.
dealing with customer, physical work sometimes outside
No time off, weak pay, too much work for little pay
Shipper / Receiver (Former Employee) – Westlock, AB – 14 April 2018
As a hole the company needs to be better organized on planning there shipments of product to the stores. I learned that the receiver at this job is blamed for everything at this store and lot allowed to defend themselves other people are right even if they are wrong. the other staff are really nice people and can be very helpful.
one hour lunch and staff
management don't trust staff and the won't talk to the staff to find the other side of a story.

Cashier, Customer Service, Cash-outs, Cleaning (Former Employee) – High River, AB – 15 November 2017
Working here was great, my first job was Wal-Mart, but Peavey Mart was my second job and I loved it! I worked there for over a year and a half. its more of a farming store, so when I first started working there I think all the farmers hated me. as I got to know more about the store and the products we sold the more I felt like I liked my job and I could actually help customers without looking dumb. I actually ended up becoming friends with a lot of the customers outside of the store, and living in a small town you would see familiar faces around town.
Very warm friendly enviroment, staff are very easy to get along with and management is excellent.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – North Battleford, SK – 2 November 2017
Typically at a day at work I'm helping a lot of customers. That can range from as simple as locating a product to helping them load heavier products to their vehicle. Its a really friendly inviting atmosphere and most of the customers are pleasant. I've learned a lot about farm equipment and hardware that id never learned before. The hardest part of the job is the amount of products I have absolutely no knowledge about but its also been very informative when I learn about them. Management makes sure that I've been trained in the vital areas and that I'm comfortable with whatever I'm doing. most enjoyable part of the job is definitely the awesome coworkers.
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Camrose, AB – 23 July 2017
-Steady hours -Ability to work cash, or complete stock -Convenient break rotation -If you are having personal problems, there were many people there who were willing to listen -the most enjoyable part of the job were the people i worked with, and the customers that came through the door. I loved working at the till because I was able to talk to everyone who came through -Hardest part of the job were the irrate customers. Sometimes, no matter what you do, how hard you try to make them happy, it's never enough. It's all a part of working retail. You win some, you lose some.
Supervisor, Cashier, Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 26 October 2016
As I said being a new store we've gone through some ups and downs, management issues (that have been corrected I should add) some stocking problems, but all in all for being a retail job it is a very nice place to work!
