Terrible management. Zero respect, yet they don’t like it when you defend yourself or others. Harassment at its finest even if you email HR, they won’t get back to you. 9/10 staff members are more like family They do not care if customers treat you poorly
Discounts and frequent customers
Management refuse to be retrained
when you’re a manger you’re given a load of tasks to complete but given no time to actually do them. When you don’t compete the tasks you get in trouble from higher ups. The theft is terrible and the high ups won’t let you do anything or do anything about it themselves which is incredibly frustrating

I worked for value village and is the worse place that one can work. They slave and harass that weak .The general manager always support the production manager to harass the poor minimum wage weak worker. Please do not donate anything to this organisation .Find different way to donate your clothes and goods. 11732-166 street is that place.
harassement from fcc production worker in 2018 January till now.
It's a good place to work for anyone interested in retail. They offer plenty of opportunities to advance your position. Like with any customer service job the the hardest part of the job is the customers. Also management will constantly ask for you to sign customers up for "club cards" which tends to be frustrating if you are not meeting the goal set by them. A typical workday is ensuring the floor is constantly tidy and shop able, interacting with customer and providing checkout, attending to the fitting rooms and whatever else the manager on duty asks of. The ONLY reason Savers is a company I've worked at for so long for is the people. I have made great connections with customers and co-workers alike.
Constant calls to come into work often
Always keep yourself busy with sorting goods, hardest part of the jobs it is very dusty and even you keep your place tidy and clean the dust is all over the place.
you can talk while working and people are helpful
working on weekends, that are not paid overtime.
Will hire outside rather than developing talent from within. Has different dress code for regular staff and management, fostering a intense hierarchical structure. Management does not receive effective training in professionalism and supervisory skills. At the very least, is an appropriate place to work if you have little to no job prospects absolutely anywhere else.
discount, dressing up for 2 months
Management would goof sometimes which was really frustrating. The warehouse-like environment was super awful for me. My coworkers were pre cool though and so was one of my supervisors so that made it bearable. Still, I sure didn't working my butt off at school all day and then having to go to work to support the family. Moral of the story is, do fast food. But, thanks for the job anyhow, value village.
Great place to work, like an island of misfit toys, value village frequently hires the odd and different people and molds them into productive team members. Turnover is reasonably high in management, as what is asked of them and compensation to do so really don't line up.
The people in both management and co-workers are great to work with and dealing with the customers can have its challenges though they are still nice to interact with.
Honestly, If you're in high school or first year in university it's an ok job. But if you're needing references don't stay there long. It's a waster of time especially you're not planning to stay for a long time.
co-workers are friendly
You can lose your job if you don't give out a certain amount of club cards, unsavory shoplifters
