Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
working at value village is challenging but fun. Challenging because, most of the time we work under pressure. Fun because you meet a lot of people, you could learn something every day that you can apply for your daily lives.

Management exploits employees and is concerned only of profit.

The worst employer I have ever come across. Management expects employees to work at a pace that even they can't keep up with. Washroom breaks outside of coffee or lunch breaks are frowned upon as they consider these breaks as time lost for the company. When an employee needs to take a day off from work it can be difficult to stay home. Manager does not like absences no matter the reason. Merchandise is over-priced and hardly any benefits for employees.

Loved it and would highly recommend

I loved working there everyone is so nice. It is a fast paced environment but not too fast. They really do train you well for the position that your in they do not just throw you at your department and let you fed for yourself. They really do take the time to show you everything and their very understanding for first time production workers like I was who had little knowledge of a production line.Amazing, amazing, amazing people, bosses, and team.

Don't do it

I've had some awful jobs but this one takes the cake. The management is just horrendous. They don't care about your health or safety. Half the people that go in come out with injuries and management just keeps pushing you regardless of physical limitations. You are required to get unrealistic goals done with a skeleton crew. Its hard labour for minimum wage.

Stable job,competitive in wage and benefits

It is a very busy store. Production is high volume most of the time. I have learned a lot in various department as merchandiser. The management is fair to both ordinary and high ranking employee. Follows government and store policies lawfully and strictly. The hardest part of the job is sorting donations like you cant avoid dust and bad smells. But the most enjoyable part of the job is pricing. It's a challenge for me to put up good and fair price to merchandise of different rates.

Pros

Breaks, No cutting of hours, Bonuses when you hit sales

Cons

Dirty working place (like dusty), High daily quota of production on each department
