Not all what it’s made out to be
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 5 April 2018
at first it’s made out to be a happy, positive, you can talk to anyone about anything environment until you’re about a month in and you are treated differently (hours cut, given attitude, talked down to) for bringing up problems (stolen sales, hours constantly fluctuating, etc) that could have easily been resolved.
hours cut majorly for being sick or having “to many returns”.
always was told about the stuff management would say behind your back.
goals were insanely high some days when there was little to no traffic in the mall or store but are still expected to make them.
a very negative and fake environment.
never rewarded for your accomplishments, they’re always finding something wrong with what you do/did.
basically wanting you to nag customers until they tell you to go away.
employees constantly complaining on what’s been done or said to them from management.
went to head office about how bad of an environment everyone had to work in, was laughed at and they made no effort to make it better for anyone.
could careless about employees when they are sick, have concerns or going through something.
if you try but can’t achieve all your weekly goal, apt or upt, they say that they want you to either have made weekly sales or have high apt/upt but will write you up if you didn’t do all 3. will get mad and make comments that you made your goal but only by so much.
just finding little things to pick at you about.
mainly it’s management at the store, district management and head office/upper management that make the whole experience terrible.
