Amazing store, amazing people, amazing mission!
Volunteer (Current Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK27 March 2017
Restocking inventory, making sales, learning about new products, keeping our mission statement in mind, organizing store, and informing customers about products, where they're from, etc.

Easy, relaxed, fun, stress-free workplace. The staff is polite and amazing with customers and coworkers, flexible and enjoyable to work with, along with management.

The best part of my day would be chatting with customers, why they're in the store, what they're looking for, every customers have a story.
Pros
Discount card, free snacks, drinks (tea, water, coffee), always learning everyday on the job.
Cons
Long slow days.

Provided a calm and friendly atmosphere
part-time sales associate (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB19 March 2019
Although the store was quiet most of the days, the other employees and volunteers made the day go by fast. There is always something to do such as cleaning the shelves or learning about the merchandise which helps you become more knowledgable with the store's mission and purpose as a non-prophet.

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.
