Floor Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Whitby, ON – 16 June 2018
The values of this company are great and its nice to see the growth of our company through the years. Management needs work, it shouldn't be intimidating to speak to a superior and those in the leadership roles shouldn't be able to abuse power without consequences.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 29 May 2018
Princess Auto was a fun place to work, with lots of different people. I loved working with different people on different shifts, and it felt like a family. The customers were mostly very nice, and fun to serve. The most enjoyable part of the job would be just getting to know my customers, and co-workers. The toughest part of the job would have to be the physical labour, and working in the warehouse.
I loved working there-9 years. Always felt like a member of a family.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 4 May 2018
The pay was good and the profit sharing great. I always felt like part of a team. I have many fond memories of times both at work and social events. My Princess Auto family helped me through some bad times like losing both parents just a month apart, adjusting my schedule to help me be able to stay working due to an illness and making sure I was ok since my husband lived in NJ. Since retiring I miss them. I still keep in touch with many.
Flexible schedule, profit sharing and friendly environment
Day receiver/shipper (Current Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 30 April 2018
Management it week and can’t agree on any problems the arise. Wants everyone to be a team player but has favourite employees/ friends. Doesn’t hold people accountable for continuously being late, extra long breaks
Cashier/Sales Associate (Team Member) (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 10 April 2018
While my boss was nice, the team of supervisors were biased, chose favourites, and overall would let some people get away with murder (longer breaks, not doing their work, talking badly about other team members, ect.), and would even take long breaks themselves, were late continuously, and we're generally not very approachable, though they claimed to be. As a company, their views and outlook are wonderful, and I felt supported and backed by the company as a whole, but the team leaders in there need some work, because they are all too immature and don't seem to care about what they're doing unless the boss is watching. Raising concerns never gets anything done, and people get away with way too much here.
Generally pays well, benefits are pretty alright, some team members treat you well.
Awesome place to work. Great people, with lots of opportunity for fun at work
Assistant Team Leader (Current Employee) – Kingston, ON – 1 March 2018
I have learned many aspects of leadership from the people I have worked with. Their is very much a family feel to the people across the company. This company works as a team across the country for 1 goal, 1 plan.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Langley, BC – 26 February 2018
I was fairly nervous when I got hired because my past three jobs had been temporary/seasonal positions. Thankfully this location was completely different! My three month probation came and went without even a peep from management.
I've been here for almost a year now and I absolutely love it. (Almost) everyone is like family to me. It's great coming to work and actually getting a long with my coworkers. Being able to talk to anyone like they're my friend is such a good feeling.
The only downside to this location is that more people seem to be leaving than management is able to hire so all the employees are stretched fairly thin.
friendly coworkers, great benefits, frequent raises
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 26 February 2018
Princess Auto is a company that is unwilling to move ahead and advance with the social media trends in order to service the up and coming consumer. Accountability is not on the forefront with coaching Leaders or associates alike.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 8 February 2018
You get good benefits but if you're part time you can only get them after 2 years and full time 6 months I believe. Management sucks and not enough people working shifts, constant complaints from costumers about no assistance provided by employees but management still doesn't do anything about it. Management complains about employees not doing anything but standing around and just chatting when managers do the exact same thing but rather than doing it out on the floor- they do it in the back where they're not seen for their entire shift. Customers make inappropriate comments to you and feel like its okay and theres nothing employees can do about it.
