-Full time hrs 8-4:30 Mon.-Fri. -Sort through all the donations to put out the best ones. -10,000 new items get put out daily. -Start out the shift by resetting the store so that items are in their proper place and old items that didn't sell get taken off and recycled. -Two separate parts in the store to work in: The Sales floor and the Production room. -Hardest part was keeping up with your quotas. Everything is on a timed basis. -Hands on training from Management as well as team members. -Everyone got along well. Family atmosphere. -A for profit company that has a relationship with a non profit.
Pros
50% off discount. Benefits
Cons
Standing in one place for a while

The hours were Monday to Friday, 7:30am-4:00pm if you worked in the production area (the back). Management would treat you like a friend then come after you if you had one slip up. Often they were very unprofessional with how they spoke to employees and expected too much. Coworkers had no respect for others, it was basically a fight everday you went. No pay raise till after year and it was a very small raise.

Mass walkouts, treating staff like garbage by yelling at them calling them idiots. Forcing staff to listen to music from disney movies, raises the quotas higher then actual quota then taking no responsibility while their production falls apart. Long term an hard work mean nothing to them they have been bribing people to stay with vacations, positions, and raises. No regard for personal safety as they are on the last strike before getting fined by their own company. Manager an management rarely deals with issues, or keeps you outta the loop with important information.
Pros
Discount
Cons
Low job satisfaction

Worked at lethbridge store 4 yrs, loved it! Calgary's chinook store is terrible. Very unsafe, messy, disorganized production room. Prod. Manager is very disconnected from her employees and avoids telling you straight up and throws her supervisors under the bus to avoid looking like the bad guy. The quotas the company expects from their employees is ridiculous, especially for the housewares team. Everyone who works there is in a constant state of stress and anxiety and it is over all a unsatisfactory place to work. Not to mention they most likely will pay you just above minimum wage for a 40+ hour a week job that you have to work your butt off everyday in fear of getting written up or fired.
Pros
Benifits
Cons
Low pay for work load.

Depending on your location there might be a lot to deal with, but overall a pretty easy job. If you're looking for work that gives you a lot of hours this is the place, but they practically schedule you as a full time worker regardless of if you're part time or not.
Pros
A lot of hours
Cons
Over worked

I would suggest this as a good part time job for students, or a good job for someone who needs one. The store I worked at wasn't the best with hours, but I'm sure that's different at every store. The job is simple, no matter what job you have. Cashier, CDC or production, none of it is difficult. The employees were the best part, but once again differs store to store. You get paid minimum wage and get a raise every year.

Working at this Value Village I found very pleasurable, staff is friendly and helpful. Management is very approachable and you do feel as though you've been heard when discussing anything with them. Salary is minimum wage to start, they do have good benefits after your initial probationary period. There is plenty of room to advance if that's your desire. Job culture is nice, not too much back stabbing or gossip.
Pros
Friendly environment
Cons
low wages

Don’t do it! Management only cares about numbers, never consistent, minimum wage job for a lot of work and being pushed to your limits. Employees are blamed for low sales and for the quality of items donated. During training you’re told you get quarterly bonuses but not told only if sales are really high.
Pros
Monday-Friday
Cons
Management and blame game.

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
