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.

Jobs at Value Village
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.
Low pay for work load.
Value Village is a step above most companies -good people, benefits, staff incentives. -hard work, time flies by for some -good hours for some -there is an open door policy -emphasis on respect in the workplace
lunches, benefits, hours
tiring work. time quotas, pressure
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.
A lot of hours
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.
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.
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.
Break every 2 hours, sick and vacation pay
On-call, CDC donations
