Production: overworked and underpaid

A high-stress, extremely corporate and toxic work environment. Words by my co-workers: "I can't imagine another company that would put a bag of donations above someone's safety." "Sometimes I just go home and cry." "I have never felt so under valued and under appreciated."

Pros

benefits

Cons

stress, safety, physical health, mental health

Nice benefits, hard work

If you are planning to apply, take this into consideration; having worked in both areas of a store, I recommend the front end of the store. Of course, working with the public can be hard and stressful, it's nothing compared to working in the back area. Depending on the location and the management, you have to prepare yourself for high performance and meeting set quotas each day. You do get some information on how items are priced before they reach the sales floor. And see some of the 'garbage' that people donate. Many of the others you work with can be very friendly. It can be a fun place to work, but be careful of what you say. One of the great benefits is getting discounts on the items you buy. But you have to wait 48 hours after it hits the sales floor before you are able to consider buying it. The customers get first choice and pick. I would consider myself lucky if an item I wanted to buy was still there after the 2 day waiting period.

Pros

discounts on merchandise

Cons

language barriers, 'I rate' customers

I loved working here mostly because of the people I worked with

I loved the people I worked with including management. It wasn't a high paying job, but it was a job I love going to everyday. I even left for a period of time for a higher paying job but found that, I much rather work at a lower paying that I love then a higher paying job that I didn't. I would have never left Value Village if my circumstances didn't change. Great company to work for!

Pros

too many to count. fun, learning something new, the people

Cons

low pay, too far for me to travel

Stressful , not a place I would reccomend

The job per Se is a great job, interesting to say the least, it's the unethical treatment from management which is deplorable. You are given a high goal to do in your shift, if you can not attain that goal you are threatened with the loss of your job. Considering the nature of the donations that is not always feasible, quite often you are dealing with pure garbage or unacceptable items. Broken dishes, burnt or filthy pots and pans, small appliances that don't work. How ever that is not an acceptable response when questioned as to why you didn't achieve your goal. Most enjoyable aspect of the job was seeing all the neat things come in especially the antiques.

Pros

benefits, paycheque, co workers

Cons

being threatened with the loss of your job if you don't reach your goals
