Fun workplace. Management needs work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
production management won't praise you for a good job just writes you up for tiny mistakes. Has favorite employees who get away with anything. Belittles you if you're still learning. Production supervisors are the only saving grace

Pros

Supportive supervisors. And half price clothing

Cons

My life with Value Village

Value Village for me was more than just a job it was my new career. Unfortunatley my life took me in a different direction and I was forced to leave an iportant part of my life. I loved everything about this company from their core values to there mission. It is an extreamly fast paced high energy enviroment.

Pros

unlimited opprotunites for advancement

Cons

none

Absolutely fit my life at the time. I just wanted to buy a hobby farm or I would have stayed to retirement. I enjoyed merchandising, pricing, team leading a very ambitious team of people.

Pros

very lucrative

Cons

At the time, management was terrible.

The job itself was fine, the goals at times were a little over the top. The management I had while I was there took a major nose dive after our Store Manager (who opened the new location with us) left. I just hope that manager is no longer there, and the store is doing better.

Horrible

Les employés sont traités comme des esclaves, il y a beaucoup d'exigence pour ce travail il faut une bonne condition physique surtout si on travail comme commis à la production, faire 10 à 14 chariot par jours c'est de la folie, en plus les sacs sont trop lourdes, et si tu es en retard pour faire ton chariot qui pèse 1000 lb et que tu dois le finir dans 30 min, les supérieurs vont crié sur toi. Les superviseurs sont la juste pour regardé les employés !! Y a pas de sens de l'organisation. Tu perds juste ton énergie et à la fin de la journée, tu es vraiment épuisé et tout ça pour un salaire minimum!!c'est un emploi pour les gens qui n'ont pas fait des études. C'était une très mauvaise expérience pour moi

Cons

Salaire minimum

Management could use work.

Worked for a few months and it was great. Great friendships made with the other employees. Management is lacking however. Took a month to receive my first paycheque despite asking for it on multiple occasions. Ended up receiving 3 cheques at once. Fishy. I really loved working as one of the donation ambassadors. Ended up quitting as I did not want to chance waiting another month for my next pay.

Pros

Fantastic Coworkers

Cons

Fun But Can Be Boring

They always want you to be faster and exhaust yourself. You don't get promoted or ever get a raise. You only get benefits if you are full time. You get fired for not enough hours because you're going to school. Rude Management.

Pros

Fun

Cons

Rude management

Customer Service is Key

Value Village was one of my first 'grown up jobs'. I was with the company for two years. They not only have great opportunity for employees but they also better the community in more ways then one would think.

Cons

sale days.
