All of my coworkers were a wonderful group of ladies! Everyone becomes really close friends and we all treat each other like a family, managers included. If you requested time off you would more than likely get it unless it was Halloween as the last 2 weeks of October are blacked out and you can not request time off during that time. December-March are incredibly slow and you will get sent home early quite a bit. We were understaffed a lot of times too to the point where you might work a 10 hour day or be asked to stay later because of frequent call ins. The only problems I had were I would get a write up if I didn’t get a certain amount of membership sign ups in a week which would be hard to do considering a lot of people are already members so it doesn’t count, and others don’t want to give out their email so it also doesn’t count. I could ask every customer I spoke with to give me their phone numbers but if they didn’t want to attach an email I would not be able to reach my goal of 3% sign ups per transaction. It was a very competitive place as we are a smaller store competing against the other VV’s in the Ottawa area. Operations would always get the short end of the stick and I didn’t feel we were as appreciated as Production was. I worked there for almost 3 years and made the best of friends, but the toxicity of the place as well as being put in the CDC area for a whole season despite not having any training and me saying countless times that I would much rather not, I decided to leave.
Free Lunches on Sale Days, 50% off discount on clothes, friendly coworkers
Work a lot of open to close shifts, slower days in the winter months, senior days are always extremely busy
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.
Great team members & co workers
Mon passage au villages des valeurs est incroyable. La relation entre employer est spécial. On se considérait comme une famille. Toujours du fun tout en gardant nos sérieux. Quelques moment désagréable, mais on oublie vite !
La relation avec les membres d'équipe et la gestion
Manque parfois d'organisation, certain superviseur paresseux

If you dont mind working with recycled items and getting a bit dirty then its a great place to work. Management is fun they have a lot of theme days so fun atmosphere.
They have social distancing in place.
Can get dirty at times and daily hrs can be shortend at anytime.
I feel that working at Value Village is a benefit for anyone. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and extremely supportive. Its nice to know your regulars and have a relationship with them as well.
