Best retail sector to work
Although the salary somewhat is not fair, it is a good company with a good top-level manager, and fun and friendly employee. management is strict about the dress code, but if you like to dress up formally, it is a good opportunity to exercise that!

Eh
It’s alright I guess. Pay is above average but a raise only once every 3150 hours worked. Management gets paid almost nothing. Some of the managers have a chip on their shoulder and feel like the company revolves around them.

Fun and exciting workplace
Fun people but the management sucks. This job was way more fun than my previous ones and the managers try to please their workers by throwing work parties and hosting raffles

Save yourself the headache
Horrible place to work at, especially working in customer service, not only are you under paid, but u are expected to do a list of things that the managers are supposed to be doing. As a Manager how are you going to throw in two people that are training to work by them selves with no supervision or help? You can’t even ask for help or ask questions without them making you feel bad about it . All to say horrible place to work at , and would definitely not recommend

Good Management
I did not agree that when I need to closed supposed your shift is until 9;30, but they let you go home 15 minutes before and they don’t pay those 15 minutes. One day is not bad but if you need to close the whole week I did not get pay for 1 hr 15 min. if you put those hours twice a month and you need to buy bus pass it’s difficult to leave with $ 15.00 dls per hour

I wont ever go back!!!
The new management team don't care for employees' life at all. At the beginning of opening the store, it was a nice place to work at; but not any more... It is sad to see how the new management are destroying the work culture at Simons...

Slow paced relaxed environment
As long as you show up on time and keep your designated area clean management would be happy with your work. Customers are nice and rarely get very busy except for the holidays.
Pros
Easy work
Cons
Often boring

Ennuyant
Manque d’équilibre entre la vie professionnelle et personnelle surtout si vous êtes employés à temps plein. Travail très ennuyant, toujours dans la même section. Chefs d’équipe immatures qui ne savent pas comment communiquer avec leur équipe. Atmosphère tense et désagréable en général.

productive and creative enviroment
Managers allow us to merchandise and be creative so that we attract customers. They don't put pressure or stress on us. Its a fun environment to work, and co-workers are actually nice and friendly

Organized, steady scheduling, welcoming and friendly co-workers
Simons is much more organized than any other retail store I've worked for in terms of management and duties. You get a a steady schedule (work the same hours and days usually). I've loved Simon's most for my co-workers. From the beginning everyone is very friendly and welcomes you in like you've been there forever.

SoSo place to work
Pros: amazing crew members, above average salary for a retail job, and pretty easy job, crew parties, management tries to make some sort of effort to organize events.

Cons: Strict dress code for males and easy dress code for females (Should be equal), weird and pointlessly strict company policies, manipulative management (for the most part) that spies and does not really trust staff, can be very repetitive boring job, removes employees randomly, pretty poor employee discount.

A kind and caring company
Working here is a pleasure, the company cares about staff on an individual level.

I learned a lot about business structure from working nearly 4 years at this company.

Park Royal has the worst upper management in place toxic environment
Two of the upper management at Park Royal need to be removed. They are ruining the morale of staff and it will be an endless cycle of people leaving. The other Simons locations in Quebec retain staff but not here and this is due to the poor internal management. It is a culture of bullying, mean girls club, intimidation and harassment as the two upper management at this location are very insecure and will openly run you down and others to make themselves look better.

One individual in management sent naked photos of herself to male stock team members and that was overlooked by management and deemed not happening. If a male employee had done this he would have been terminated but as the two in upper management are friends so it was covered up


Same manager let staff she liked text her personally and let them come in late for shifts without penalty. This individual feels very threatened by anyone who perhaps might know more than she does. Instead of using her staff's experience and knowledge to her benefit, she felt threatened and would put you down. Numerous comments by associates in store that if you did not follow her Instagram account she would make life at work impossible for you. It was a basically Mean Girls situation and these people are in their mid-thirties!!!!


Same individual would often make open racist comments to staff on regular basis. Many people complained about this individuals comments but complaints were filtered and shut down at the store level. The store has not had its own HR in place for years so if you wanted to file a complaint it had to go through

Great place to work with great coworkers and a positive atmosphere.
I had a great time working at Simons. The job is pretty simple as you mostly talk to customers, cash them out, fold clothing and clean up messes. A typical day at work is coming dressed in a suit, helping customers out and cashing them out.

productif et agréable
J aime les divans. Je n'aime cependant pas les repas gratuits en effect cela ne convient pas à tout le mode alors pourquoi exagérer ?
L`ambiance et le personnel jeune est aussi une chose que j'appécie.

For the time being
A serious environment, very work oriented, but willing to help. Rules are important to follow. Fairly enjoyed my time there. Dress codes are obligatory and very structured and professional. register system is easy to understand somewhat. many interfaces to grasp for a person who isn't a fast learner.
Pros
professional
Cons
a lot of standing and walking around aimlessly sometimes.

Productive and collaborative work
Paid more than minimum wage, no commission, management is way too strict for a retail store. Overall, not a bad experience, would change the dress code to something more casual however.
