I loved working at Rocky, the people were phenomenal to work with, the environment is so friendly and very welcoming, I learned about how to make a sale and make it easy going and not pushy.

I worked seasonal, but I'm still friends with people who work there. It's extremely relaxed and nice. Probably the only retail work on this planet where you don't have to deal with angry customers. You get a generous discount on products as well. Not to mention, they give you a welcome package of Rocky products for you to try out, and if there is a products you're not too sure on, they give you it so you can try it out and give a genuine response to customers. It is still an entry level position so don't expect high pay, but if you're a student or have kids, Rocky would be perfect because they are extremely understanding and accommodating when it comes to personal life.

If you are interested in learning how to sell in a retail environment, and you don't want to feel 'slimy' or 'salesy' about selling, get a job at Rocky. They provide training, tools (booklet of fantastic sales questions), and incentives to easily sell their product to customers. Unfortunately as a part-time worker, they will give you 4.5 hr shifts or less in order to avoid giving you a break. Otherwise, a wonderful place to work and fantastic management & coworkers.

At a store level, Rocky does attract great people. But once you get into management you will be micromanaged and bullied by upper management until you quit or are fired.

They preach that they have the best workplace culture, but it's all superficial. They really don't care about you and will fire you at the drop of a hat if they decide that they don't like you.

the training was comprehensive and awesome but the manager rushed me and expected me to know everything within a certain period of time which is okay. at first she was sweet; then she and some trainers were starting to become bullies and i was getting under pressure. they'll reduce your hours if they don't like you then eventually tell you "oh we are now filled up" and indirectly fire you with the promise of calling you back when they need people again
Pros
great training, nice testing and samples, some nice coworkers and awesome videos to show products
Cons
trainer and manager were saucy and very rude; made me feel stupid at some point

This was the best place I have ever worked. Everyone was so friendly, welcoming and helpful when I started. Management was so informative, encouraging and friendly. They truly care about their employees and it shows.

Rarely a repetitive day at the workshop, always a new challenge. Got a chance to experience many different departments and work in interdepartmental teams. Culture is very positive and focuses on growing as a team. The only downside is the salary and benefits, standard for Canmore but much lower than nearby Calgary and considering the cost of living...you must do it for the love of the lifestyle (living in the beautiful Rocky Mountains)

The company pays very little, does not reward hard work. They preach their "values" but when it comes down to it they only live it on the surface. It's all for face value! They talk about building "genuine" relationships but in fact, there is not 1 genuine employee I've met since working here. Watch your back, they will trick you into thinking they are the worlds best company but you'll be surprised if you've worked there long enough the kind of garbage you uncover!. Highly do not recommend their fake culture.
Pros
Product discounts, store smells good
Cons
People, culture, lies!

This is an extremely positive place to work. Rocky has a fabulous cohesive team environment. Everyone who works for the company is very motivated to get you on board with their branding and get you up to date with all of the latest company info. They are extremely ethical and respond quickly to any concerns you may have. They also offer flexible scheduling and a fun fast paced retail experience with customer service as an extreme sport being one of their mandates. If you love all natural and want to be part of the toxin free movement than this job is for you.

Amazing culture and company to be part of. Tight knit with lots of head office assistance to the branch stores in other locations makes it feel less vertical and more horizontal in its management style. Fairly stress free and lots of cool benefits of being part of the family!
Pros
Discounted product
Cons
Some employees are a bit catty

This company for some reason has a good reputation as an employer. However as anyone who makes the mistake of working there would likely warn you, it's a high stakes company that essentially divides its employees and breeds mistrust.
The pay is meagre unless you're an executive or the owners. They act like they care, but in the end it's a ruse. Its definitely a profits before people kind of place. If they can use you, they will.

I do not recommend this company as an employer. Too bad...
Pros
Flexible schedule for some
Cons
Low pay, bullying managers

The company is great to work for as they have a good competitive wage, benefits, and flexible schedule however management seems to be an issue. Not enough duties or tasks assignment which causes a lot of boredom throughout the day. Management only works set schedule, hard to maintain good work/life balance as you work a lot of long shifts in the evening. Customers are great and make the job worth it.

A typical day ay Rocky was working hard making the line of soaps, salts, and anything else that was in the inventory, enjoying a good laugh with co-workers while being safe and conscious of others around. I learned a whole new career, how to be patient and get along and respect others. Management was always encouraging and if mistakes were made, they understood we were human. They would tell us what we needed to improve on be it speed, quality or others. Then they would tell us what we were doing right! The hardest part of the job for me was the sit down jobs as I really love to slug it out and be physical! The most enjoyable part of the job for me was, cleaning up after a physical day, feeling proud of my accomplishments and to boot the Managers thanking us for our effort every day!
Pros
Free Pizza Lunches once per month, Profit Sharing, Kind people and amazing culture, to name a few of many!
Cons
Long walk to work.
