Great as a first part-time job, very chill, yet can be very stressful and tedious

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A typical day at work depends on what day and time your shift starts. Slow days usually consists of racking any unwanted clothing to be rolled back into the front, maintaining the cleanliness of the store, and helping a steady, but constant flow of customers. However it is usually during lunch and afternoon hours that's when it gets chaotic, especially on Senior Tuesday and the weekend. Sometimes, if not most of the time, you'd have to be multi-tasking, such as cleaning the washrooms, and answering phone calls while ringing in customers, and having exchanges. Because there are a few customers who always want to have the best deal possible, they can be very aggressive towards you especially during price-checks. The management at my former branch, was nice, and they were very patient, but they can have unrealistic expectations and quotas, especially during the annual sale days, and there can be a lack of communication. However, it was my colleagues who helped make the job enjoyable, and I've learned so much more than I could have ever had in year working at Value Village. I've made friends with many regular customers, and it was always a pleasure helping them.

Working as a team with respectful manners and positive attitude

Working at Value Village gave me perspective about what it really means to work as a team. I needed help many times when I first started working, I felt that I was a burden to my co-workers because they have their own job to do and did not have the time to help me until they did and kept making feel comfortable enough and confident that I could do it on my own. A few months later, a new employee joined the company. Whenever she needed help I would be there to help her out and give her some advice until she no longer needed help from anyone.

Pros

Free lunches at random times of the week

Cons

Not enough hours to earn more income

Great place to work, managment is fun to work with.

Meet and greet customers. Answer any question they may have. Cashier duties, ring through customer's item in a timely and accurate manner. The most enjoyable part of the job is the customers and their stories. The most difficult part of the Sales clerk job is being on your feet for an entire shift.

Pros

Lots of celebrations, birthdays, baby showers etc.

Cons

No guaranteed hours for part time employees
