Oubliés par la direction
Conseillère de vente (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC8 March 2019
Rarement considérés, lorsque l'on travaille en magasin, par la direction. Toutes les décisions qui sont prises au bureau chef ne sont en aucun cas estimées pour le confort et le travail des employés en magasin, ce qui ne rend pas le travail aisé, et le rapport avec les clients est rendu difficile.
Cons
Peu de communication entre bureau chef et magasin

Horrible Management
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Cookstown, ON30 October 2018
After working there for two weeks I was asked to work and do tasks of an assistant manager when simply a key holder. The manager does not work nights or weekends and always leaves early. She also disregards others and bullies employees. The district manager is no better. The other sales associates are amazing staff to be surrounded with but the turn over rate is sky rocketing. this is the fault of management and no one else.

It was a good place to work
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Sherwood Park, AB24 October 2018
Helped customers find the items they need, giving them information on the product they need.
Filled the shelves, cleaned. Did the stock when it came in.
Hardest art of the job was lifting heavy boxes.
Enjoyed the customers and making new friends

A good stepping stone
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Kelowna, BC12 October 2018
Stokes was never going to be a permanent job for me. I was treated fairly and looked out for my employees. Sometimes the work would outweigh the pay. Overall it was a good experience and would recommend this company to anyone looking for a stable place with consistent work and good management.
Pros
Steady workflow, good management
Cons
Pay could be better

Awful place to work
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON7 September 2018
As much as I love the products the managers are hired just to fill the position and more than half of them need to be fired for their poor work ethic. You work so hard without hearing anything from headoffice other than when they are down your throats about sales.
Pros
Product is great
Cons
Awful headoffice and lacks leadership

Walk away
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  GTA, ON20 August 2018
Terrible place to work. No work life balance as your schedule is subject to change every day. Hours are cut yet they expect you to be available anytime “they” need you.
Products are good. Upper management intimidates and bullies.
Pros
Products are good
Cons
No job security. No work life balance

Environnement de travail dynamique et compétitif
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC7 August 2018
Stokes est une entreprise très connue, d'ou la nécessité d’être ultra dynamique lorsqu'on y travaille, car la bonne réputation de leur marque doit absolument être préservée. En tant que travailleur chez Stokes, surtout sur un poste d'associé aux ventes, on doit atteindre certains buts de vente et être capable de conseiller les clients a la perfection. Le milieu de travail est compétitif, et il y a des nouvelles choses a apprendre a chaque jour. La gamme de produits croit constamment.
Pros
Milieu de travail rafraîchissant et dynamique, possibilité d'en apprendre plus sur les articles de cuisine, bel esprit d'équipe, rabais sur les produits après 3 mois de travail
Cons
Milieu qui pourrait être trop compétitif pour certains, le travail peut devenir répétitif

Depends highly on management
Seasonal Cashier (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC23 April 2018
The culture is fine, though it can suffer if you have a bad manager. My first manager made work highly enjoyable and she was very kind but my second manager was extremely critical and only cared about the numbers of sales you were doing.

The way that sales run can be frustrating and confusing and be prepared to deal with customers who want you to break down exactly how they work.

It can be decent, however. But again, depending on managers, you can be called the day before or day of and told that you're now on the schedule for the next day or whatever. It makes it very difficult to have a good balance.
Pros
20% employee discount
Cons
Unpredictable scheduling

Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Prince George, BC8 January 2018
Amazing place to work, the job title consisted of a lot of work. Left due to starting school. Stokes would not allow me to stay on as a part time sales associate.
