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
Pros
Discounts and frequent customers
Cons
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

Staff turn over is high, they fire people for being sick. They will never pay overtime and raises are non existent. The staff is great but management sucks.

Management isn't always on the same page. Manager forget to tell supervisor about special trailers or changes in truck scheduled runs and the like. team is very engaging and fun to work with.

Very poor management combined with a hostile work environment make Value Village an extremely bad place to work. If you get an offer anywhere else, take it.

Great place to work if you're a student/entry level. There are many days where it's fast-paced however, it's a fun and overall relaxing place to work.

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.
Cons

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.
Pros
Flexible Scheduling
Cons
Constant calls to come into work often

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.
Pros
discount, dressing up for 2 months
Cons
everything else

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.
Pros
cool co-workers
Cons
customers

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.
Pros
discount

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.
Pros
co-workers are friendly
Cons
You can lose your job if you don't give out a certain amount of club cards, unsavory shoplifters
