It was a fun place to work until it wasn't fun anymore
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 14 January 2014
It is retail, it could be busy or it could be really quiet, but I always enjoyed going to work. It paid less than minimum wage, the commission was only good if you were making frequent sales, and there wasn't any real chance for advancement, but I always had a good time. I enjoyed the one on one interaction with the customers and succeeding in helping them find exactly what they were looking for. I don't want to sound bitter because we worked as a team, we were a team, we helped to boost each others sales and commissions. This was the kind of team that talked constantly behind each others backs. A person can only handle high school politics for so long.
your commission is nothing because you only get it in the holidays! just because you said your available this time doesnt mean your gonna be scheduled on those days because they schedule you on the days you're not available. your maximum commission is 2% your wage is illegal = $11 and base wage is only 7.50 x commision but its a scam! McDonalds people make twice the salary you get here! dont ever think that every retail you work will get you rich money because you'll be better off working in a restaurant with loads of cash!
