Busy, Occasionally high-stress, Inconsistent workload

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Fast paced work environment, highly dependent on teamwork. The mission of the recycling and charity aspects are a positive aspect but the compensation for certain roles within the company is not commiserate with the level of work.

Toxic environment

Team members were friendly,co-workers were great but the store manager was incompetent and a bully . He made it a very toxic environment. There was also a lack of communication, so Myself and the other supervisors were contently having to put out situational fires. Management never had our backs me or the other supervisors if any problems Came up. Not a nice place to work at.

Pros

Great team members & co workers

Cons

Store manager

Fantasitc place to work!

I loved working at the Spruce Grove location. The store fostered youth as they were starting out in the work place, and the more seasoned staff worked very nicely together. I was able to move up the ladder quite quickly and loved going to work everyday. I worked with young staff to help them construct a strong foundation to build on as they grew and flourished in the workforce, and am happy to still be in contact with many of them to this day. Every job has some negatives so I am not saying everything is sunshine and rainbows....but of all the retailers I have worked at over the course of 20 years VV is definitely a progressive work environment that wants their staff to succeed. I would highly recommend this particular store to anyone looking for employment - A

Fun environment to work, feels like part of the family. Great team to work with. Understanding and open minded management team. Horrible customers expect best customer service. People don't have respect.

Helping community

It is a pride to work at Value Village. With the core values of the company, it is respectful as well as fun working for the company. Me as a people person, have always been successful at maintaining clientele. Professionally acting managers are mentors at all times, which has made me confident to accept challenges and make myself a great learner. I am proud to be a team of Savers/Value Village.

Pros

Discounts on merchandise

Cons

long hours

People are great. Store manager is terrible

Likes me gossip about the employees and likes to keep people on their toes by giving clopening shifts. Pretends to listen to employee complaints then goes and talks negatively behind your back.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Terrible hours and availability requirements

Potential For Greatness

Toxic work environment when it comes to management. Team members get a lot of the blame for not hitting sales targets. No room for advancement. Has the potential to do really great things within the community but the company is becoming more and more profit based and forgetting about the community that allows VV to be successful.

Good benefits, unrealistic dealines

Great team members to work with, but management makes the team feel so miserable and over worked that everyone end up wanting to leave. Management is constantly changing their mind and make you feel like you don´t know your job. A lot of pressure and unrealistic deadlines are a daily stress. Benefits could be better in such big company. Terrible environment for those who are allergic. Lots of shoplifters, making you feel frustrated and unsafe.

Pros

Benefits, employee discount, stability

Cons

Unsafe, dirty, very demanding

Great place to work

Excellent place to work, within a week they advanced me to supervisor or the Halloween department (all new product) i reached the sales goal so my company benefited from the bonus, i learned how to take charge of a small group of employees, how to schedule them in best to suit there life outside of work and learned how to take charge when needed and how to put aside the friend aspect. there was no hard part of this job i was challenged and i meet it to their satisfaction.

Pros

advanced within a week of working there

Cons

management was going through lots of changes
