Horrid place to work. Folding clothes all day.

Not my idea of a merchandiser. Sorting and folding clothes. Management not understanding of anything and a lot of miscommunication. Under a lot of pressure for minimal pay. I do not recommend this place at all.

None

Cons

Stay away from HBC Queen Street

-They make you do unpaid work from home (weekly reports)- Workplace culture is toxic, not allowed to talk to your co workers, must fold pants in silence. -Favoritism in the workplace: if you're the favorite, you don't have to follow the rules (dress code, multiple raises, multiple lunch breaks), when all other coworkers must do that persons job, and never receive a raise even after 2 years of working there.-They message you constantly during late hours of the night when its after work hours, and penalize you if you're not responding to casual meaningless gossip in their What's App group chat. - Overall, you can't please them. No matter how hard you work at your job, they don't care and they will criticize you for doing extra work that THEY ASKED YOU TO DO. Ex: was told I was helping too much on the sales floor, when that's what they requested me to do..

Pros

Free wardrobe

Cons

No advancement, unpaid reports from home, no credit for the work you did

Excellent company to be a part of!

Love the independent work, being able to merchandise different brands and be creative, organizing my own schedule and the supportive management team. While you may work alone on merchandising visits, you are provided with appropriate and detailed documents to follow and there is always an account manager to assist you in every way from merchandising tips, to shipments and brand information.

A great company to work for.

I am a field merchandiser with Powerhouse and have been for almost 2 years now. I have steady work each month but in my area there is not a lot of hours, which works perfectly for me. This company really cares about all their employees, even I feel it and I would be considered very much a 'little guy'. They reach out to see how employees are doing in times of stress and always make sure to keep you informed about the company and work situations. Overall, one of THE BEST companies I have ever worked for. :D

A fun job!

Being a retail merchandiser for Powerhouse is a lot of fun. I was just looking for a part-time job, not too many hours and this is perfect for me. The staff and mangement are awesome and go out of their way to be accommodating for you.

I enjoy the flexibility, the work challenges, the brands and people I work for.

I have worked many years now with Powerhouse I started with a few hours and worked more once I was able. I mostly stay in one location and have worked with great brands and people.

Pros

Flexibility is key for me whether a few hours or fulltime, working the schedule in my life. It is never boring, often challenging and rewarding.

Cons

Some days can be long if there are deadlines to meet.

Powerhouse Retail Services is nice place to represent

I have been with Powerhouse for 17 years. I have seen many people come and go. I do enjoy the flexible time schedule and they are very fair with the schedule. I do believe I deserve an increase in salary. They have also cut out supplying supplies (camera, photo copies) etc, and have also stopped paying for travel. They have been excellent through the Covid-19 pandemic and Kelly has been very good at keeping us up to date.

Pros

Flexible Schedule

Cons

No travel pay, no material pay, and low hourly pay.
