Sales Associate - Retail in Waterloo, ON
Super inviting workplace!
I love to work at Roots, it’s a super inviting workplace, uncompetitive, and all of my co workers are friendly! The management is very laid back and really works to get employees to advance in the company.

Management ruin everything
I worked at the warehouse as a seasonal order picker. My shifts were overnight and very easy management left you alone if you did your job. If you go to afternoon shifts good luck. Too many cooks in the kitchen trying to assert their authority looking for trouble. I’ve seen people get fired just because of the way they looked or disagreeing with something. Anyways this job is good temporary and that’s all.

Management needs work.
It was a great atmosphere as a sales associate but as time went on more and more is asked of you with no benefits to yourself . The managements communication definitely needs improvement. They use you to do management duties without a pay increase while team leads and managers sit back and say they are “training you to move up” which in the end does not happen and you stay in the same position until you get fed up.
Sales Associate in Toronto, ON
Managers suck but good discount
Seen as a normal retail environment. Folding. Talking to coworkers. Helping customers.Management generally doesn't have basic problem-solving skills, and communication skills. I found sometimes I had more common sense then them and I was younger than everyoneI learnt how favouritist the environment is - if they like you, they'll find a way to promote you and keep you in management even if people don't deserve it.Some locations are very friendly like Shrek and Donkey at the end of the first movie ... and some are just toxic like Cinderella's ugly stepsisters. Go into the store and hear how employees talk to each other before signing your job offer. trust me
