Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Dartmouth, NS14 March 2018
Working at Winners and being in touch with customers non stop, taught me a lot about customer service and sales. I've been working as cashier and customer service for a long time; and I know how valuable customers are. The management taught us that customer is always first. The hardest part of the job is just the rush we get sometimes, but it's still fine. Working at retail and being in touch with people is always fun and enjoyable!
Pros
Associate Discount
Cons
Not Enough Hours

Hard Work / Low Reward Workplace
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Vaughan, ON10 March 2018
Customers are coming through in a constant flow. Peak time customer flow exceeds staff's ability to meet customer needs on a daily basis.
Promotions almost always brought in from outside candidates.
Pros
Flexible Schedule
Cons
Little Opportunity for Development

Great if you like retail work
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Fredericton, NB9 March 2018
Made lots of friends working here. You get to work closely with other associates, but some positions will put you in a box by yourself for 8 hours. Breaks are fair, but abusable for how long you can spend out back. Fine when you do it, but it will get on your nerves when other people don't return on time. My location is oftentimes understaffed, making it a stressful environment where not much gets done but helping customers.
Pros
Friendly staff
Cons
Scheduling

Good place to work was only there for seasonal work, management was okay good work life balance, work load was easy but it is labor intensive if you're not a cashier nothing bad to say.

it is a great place to work . a lot of people trying to motivate you and helping you at every step each day. co-workers and the Managers do not let you handle any difficult situation alone and are always there to help.

You will always be busy. You will be expected to do many things at once. The management is very friendly and down to earth. Staff is like a second family.

Oh wow
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC5 March 2018
I cannot express enough how much this company is corrupted.

Stay away from Griffintown winners 451. Worst "management" i ever saw.
They couldn't care less about the employees. They don't even know that it is illegal to neglect employees. It's laughable how they could put someone like that in charge. Says a lot.
Pros
When I wasn't working there.
Cons
Everything from A to Z

Fun with Good Coworkers
Customer Service Representatve (Former Employee) –  Medicine Hat, AB5 March 2018
Was great, was promoted to part time just before a wave of layoffs. Very strange products sometimes, but the Coworkers made everyday different and fun. Wish they had thought out the Expansion efforts better

Terrible place to work.
Ex Sales Associate. (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, On4 March 2018
These stores may have cool things in them, but working there was rotten.

They cut your shifts out of nowhere without warning and then try to call you in at other times when you have classes (etc).

They don't care about your rent, or your life outside of work at all.

Cold, heartless company.
Pros
Nice stuff in the store.
Cons
Cold management.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 March 2018
I have worked at winners as a sales associate and it was the best experience ever. the managers were very nice and helpful. I learned so many things at winners. I have been at cash, warehouse, fitting room, at all the departments and runway. the best part of the job is working with a big nice team and serving customers to make them happy. I would like to work with TJX again.

Good for minimum wage
Merchandise Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON28 February 2018
Each store has it's pros and cons. Some managers are a delight to work with and others will make you hate the company. Some managers don't mind when you switch shifts and others will give you a hard time. You are not allowed to take a picture of the schedule because of a privacy policy. That being said sometimes the managers change the schedule without informing the associates so check the schedule every shift you work. The harder you work the more hours you'll get.
Benefits are for full time employees only. All associates receive a 10% discount card with every pay stub that expires every 4 weeks. They have weekends where you can get 20% which happens quarterly.
Of course with every job you have the people who love to gossip. This company gossips a lot about other stores, managers and associates within the district. Try not to get caught in the mix.
Everything you do is monitored. Everything!
My best advice is keep your head down and just do your job.
Pros
There are always fun activities that happen outside of work as well as inside to keep up the morale.
Cons
Simply put; fall in line or leave.

Poor management, excellent business model
Planning Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON28 February 2018
No significant competitors has resulted in a highly politicized environment of currying favours.

Advancement dependent on popularity as opposed to any forms of merit.
Pros
Free lunches, strong business model
Cons
Management, very limited advancement potential, very political, unaccepting of different types of associates
