I worked there for a couple years doing deliveries, some days are harder than others but it’s a pretty good work environment if you like working as a team. Lots of heavy lifting and long days but also decent pay and a chance every year for pay raises depending on your work ethic.
Some very long days
This is a bRand new store and already they are having bad habits like favoritism, passing the buck, cattiness among co workers and LOTS of drama and coworkers thinking its ok to be rude to each other. Management is not on the same page. Their products are constantly on backorder, so it makes for a lot of angry customers.
Good sales training, half hour lunch, great employee discounts
Drama, cattiness, conflicting managers directions
My experience at The Brick was positive. Great team players, management who encouraged you to do your best. Overall a good experience. If you like sales and like working with the public.
We sometimes got pizza for achieving targets.
Hours were variable, depending on how many staff they had in at a time.
I love working at the brick as they have along line of expriced stuff who could go around any situation in problem solving. You alway get an answer and rely adds to you confidence in your caracter.
Place is okay to work for.. Lots of favouritism from management. If you are a favourite you can play on your phone and get away with not doing any work. If you are not a favourite you are expected to pick up the slack from the favourites. Everyone talks behind your back (including managers). You are a slave to sales people, and managers try everything to not help you with escalated customers.
Can make friends, Christmas party, 1 hour lunch
Favouritism, cliques, gossip, inappropriate harassment
Being new the other employees took advantage, and stole sales and clients. They expected you to give the commissions on all your sales to another sales person for 3 months.
Nasty management and employees
For a company that prides on professionalism, they have a clumsy way of training staff. Two days on computer watching random work videos with instructions of "Watch what you think you may need". Then told on third day to shadow someone for an hour then to basically do the job. Very unclear, management was cold and unteeling. Upper management was overheard gaslighting staff and then staff clearly hated the guy. A toxic environment to work in!!
good sales people

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
Currently hiring new associates before calling laid off associates back. Applied for open positions after lay off and recieved no call backs. Lacking in communication and you get the feeling they are not being totally honest with you.
Easily laid off and replaced
With 215 Brick Stores in Canada there are plenty of opportunities for advancement! They promote within. Show up on time, do your job, learn, train and perfect and the world is your oyster at The Brick!
Promotions, job security, great team
Can get very busy and hectic
I used to work at The Brick in Langley and I did enjoy working there until one of the Sales Associate was being very disrespectful to me that I didn't even want to work their because his boss didn't even do anything about it even when I went to him for help.
go for lunch at anytime
unless your willing to make this job your life's work YOU WILL NOT GET PROMOTED AND YOU WILL NOT GET A RAISE. Peers at this job are rude and commonly do unprofessional things that would get a person fired anywhere else. amazing mid level management though.
Management is rude. Employees are rude. Rules change constantly and dramatically, with some rules not applying to some people. Favouritism runs wild through management. Sales people are asked to put their hard earn sales under “house” so they don’t get their hard earned commission’s, while the company profits completely. You are asked to stay extra hours without pay.
