Efficiently run and a wonderful cause with amazing products
Volunteer Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON6 January 2019
The location I worked at was on Lakeshore rd., the store managers and supervisors were both efficient and kind people to work with. The customers were surprisingly amazing, and it was obvious that most of the returning customers cared as much about the artisans as the employees.

Sales Associate-Volunteer (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB7 February 2018
I loved volunteering here at Ten Thousand Villages, The only downfall is working in the front on your own after a few months. I really enjoyed the management and my co-workers. The customers are just as great as my co-workers. The one thing I didn't like was it was it can be a bit slow sometimes.
Pros
great people, good hours
Cons
nothing

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Oshawa, ON27 January 2017
It was a pretty casual work day. As a part time worker we had very minimum hours. The cashing in and out was normally done by managers. The 15 minute breaks were paid during 4 hour shifts.
Pros
Free 15 minute breaks

Great atmosphere with wonderful people to work with
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON10 May 2016
I really enjoyed working with the products and organizing the floor. I dealt with customers every time and made sales every shift. I learned to be patient and polite with everyone who walked in and tried helping the best I could without overwhelming them.

Chilled environment
Volunteer Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Waterloo, ON24 August 2014
A typical day at work includes ringing customers in and letting all those who are new about the mission of Ten Thousand Villages. Most of the time people are buying gifts so you may have to wrap and make the gift look presentable.
Sweeping, making sure the environment is clean and visually appealing are part of the day as well. All in all everyone is always warm and welcoming the environment is fulfilling and the ambiance is relaxing.
This is a place that mostly only takes volunteers so be wary of that.
Pros
Free coffee and tea
