overall good place to work, in my opinion the pay is low for how much physical labour and exertion is required. However I would most. definitely recommend value village for somebody looking to get. into the work force or find a great group of co workers

Pros

supervisors and managment is verythoughtful and understanding

Cons

physically demanding and difficult for the pay

Lots of loopholes to their system. Great coworkers though.

Way too easy for customers to rip the price tag off and get their way into buying an item for a cheaper price. You always have to be on the lookout for loss prevention. Their scheduling system really sucked. It was always handed out in slips of paper. Emailing is easier and theres less chance to lose it. It's super hard to get days off. You get sick days and vacation pay though which is awesome. A break every 2 hours which is really looking out for the employees.

Pros

Break every 2 hours, sick and vacation pay

Cons

On-call, CDC donations

Dont work there unles your desperate for a job

Lots of disgusting donations. I.e. clothing donations that were moldy,heavy smokers clothes, covered in large amouns of pet fur or grass, urine smell (sometimes still wet) either from cats or humans. Had bed bugs in donations once. Nasty old shoes. Nasty yellow sweat stained clothes. Bad manegment. Most coworkers were terrible to work with. A number of "customers" went for the 100% discount. Having to work outside a lot during winter as a recycler at a certain store because of no loading dock.

Pros

A few good customers. They had ok benefits.

Cons

A lot of bad customers. Most of the review = cons. Minimum wage.

Really Bad

This company is extremely toxic towards its employees, and the management is just terrible. You are on your feet all day, and get paid barely above minimum wage. They schedule you in just below full time (if you are part time) so that they get the benefits and you don't. This place is a joke with how they preach about family, community and acceptance. Management and supervisors are very passive aggressive, and gossip about employees as if in high school. Extremely unprofessional. Save yourself the stress, low self-esteem and wasted time. Do not apply or work here.

Pros

Sometimes free lunches

Cons

Everything else

Great place and great people— insanely high standards

While this is a great company to work for that has amazing benefits and values, I was unfortunately suddenly let go after two months because I couldn’t meet the processing standards that they expected. I believe this was because of the short amount of time I was given, and the fact that I was trained wrong in my position at the start. The processing targets are very high, multiple workers there have told me that even they don’t meet them on the daily after 2+ years of experience there. Even though I had an unsavoury experience, Value Village is a great company, just a little rough around the edges when it comes to flexibility around their daily processing targets.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

High standards

Discount is good but Management can be better

They provide good discount as well as 2 weeks paid vacation and sick days. Management at the store can be better. Typical customer service job, same type of customers. Okay for students.

Typical retail

Keeping it short: Typical retail issues with hours and slow periods. Bonus is good if targets are met (better bonus money for the production team vs. the operations team).

Pros

Bonuses

Cons

Cranky customers who want everything free

Good minimum wage work and retail experience

When you join Value Village you either get put in production or front end team member, there are various positions available depending on where you would fit in ( Donations, Cashier, Fixing store, as well as production. ) Rate 9/10 just because the team is so friendly to each other and works well together.

Pros

Very friendly team and supervisors are well trained.

Cons

Hard Work occasionally, not very good raises ( 3% yearly ) almost amounts to about what inflation is.

Treated like Robots

- Management only cared about making quota and not about how health. - Moldy conditions with no proper PPE. - No room for improvement unless you suck up to the supervisors.

Pros

Co-workers were nice

Cons

Long hours

Toxic environment

Overall the work is pretty easy and the benefits are good. Pay is minimum wage with the possibility of a 50 cent raise per year. The biggest issue is the workers and work culture is very toxic. I've described working here as being similar to being in an abusive relationship, I'm sure you can figure out why once you've worker for this company.

benefits

Not an amazing work place...

At value village you work long flexible hours even when you tell them you can't. Management is bad with no answers to any questions but "figure it out".

Pros

Lots of money on pay day, work associates

Cons

management, terrible hours, no answers?!?

Unprofessional and immature management

It's an okay first job for students but there are better minimum wage jobs. Management doesn't get paid enough and have too big of a workload so they are always on edge. Managers do not treat their workers with respect, they gossip about workers and customers acting like highschool students. Even if you are doing your work and not causing any trouble, management may still have issues with you that they will not properly handle. If you work on the sales floor they will cut your hours just below full-time so you don't receive any benefits. Save yourself the trouble and the stress and don't waste your time here. This was my experience and my advice atleast.

Pros

Good discount

Cons

Unprofessional management, unrealistic expectations
