Poor management, little hours, relatively easy work
Merch Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Bedford, NS – 4 September 2018
For a first job it’s alright.
Hours (9-9, 9-6, 12-5) are great for students, high school or university, but don’t expect to get a lot of hours unless you’re a tech person. Hours are given to them more favourably, so look forward to maybe one hour shift per week.
Back to school season is great for hours if you’re looking for a summer job.
Management at Bedford is shakey. Head manager is known to blame and yell at her associates for not pushing customers into buying something they very clearly did not want, but gladly accepts praise and credit from her superiors when the store does well.
Schedules only come out on Thursdays... very little notice of shifts.
Great colleagues, lots of hours in the summer
Verbally abusive management, very few hours September-July
