A great place for working.
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Kelowna, BC22 May 2018
There was a good place to work with good people. I was working as a sales consultant with 100 commission based salary. It was a little bit hard to handle your job but after a short period, I was happy. I got the title of the best salesperson in BC for 8 non-consecutive months and 3 times the best salesperson on nationwide.
Pros
some benefits
Cons
Long hours

Great place to cut your teeth
General Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC17 May 2018
A fun work environment to learn the craft of sales. You get to interact with a lot of clients to build up your skill set. Mentorship and training has fallen off from mid 2000’s but I hear it’s still a fun place to work. If your serious about sales here is a good place to start, if your good move on once your ready.
Pros
Can move up quickly if your good
Cons
Long hours/extensive black out periods for vacation

Shipping/Receiving Assistant (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON9 May 2018
Hard work but it was rewarding. It is what you'd expect from a warehouse job. The warehouse is very clean and the company pays well. If you work hard there is room to advance.

Not a good workplace in any way.
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  1587 REGENT Winnipeg, MB26 April 2018
This workplace is workhorse mentality. It may claim to be a Canadian company but it doesn't show Canadian qualities when it comes to their staff. You are on full commission, of course, but you are also on an up board system which means you could be wasting a lot of time with a customer that clearly is not purchasing and you are not allowed to leave them nor are you allowed to go back on the board to get a new customer to try to earn an income. it is a bad business model. It is archaic.There is so much wrong within this company that I would need a week to novel it.
These days I am trying to be more positive.

Not a Good Place to work
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Belleville, ON20 April 2018
Not a good place to work. Started with lots of hours, over 30. Ended with 12 hours per week. A little hard to pay your bills. Managers play favorites. They hire relatives of co workers. Those workers are given maximum hours. Senior employees are cut back. No training provided.
Pros
none
Cons
few hours unless you are related to someone else in the store

Get ready to work hard
Delivery Driver/Mover (Former Employee) –  Timmins, ON17 April 2018
Hard work and long hours is the name of game here. I learned the value of a hard days work at the Brick. Management was okay and the culture was laid back for the most part.

worst place to work
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB6 April 2018
Management do not care, there is no urgency when dealing with customers. No training. Not organized at all. They over promise to keep you on and they do not keep their promises.

Warehouse/Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Niagara Falls, ON30 March 2018
Good atmosphere, moving furniture around and doing pick ups. The hardest part is getting to know the computer systems. There are monthly votes for employee of the month with a sweet 75$ bonus

Fun but tiring
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Ontario23 March 2018
The people who work there make it a good and fun environment, if you need to know knowledge you're always welcome to ask questions and they do their best to make the environment uplifting.
The down sides however is that the job is commission only therefore you never know how much you're getting paid and whether or not it's enough to pay all your bills. The brick does make sure you are paid minimum wage, but only when your commission is not enough. Also, on the VIP days, you are required to work a full 12 hours, whether you regularly have the day off or not, and are not given another day off.
Pros
Work environment and Coworkers
Cons
Long days and little pay

Avoid working here
Driver/Delivery (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 March 2018
Avoid working here as a delivery person. Avoid Avoid Avoid. No work life balance. Absolutely no pay raises. Terrible supervisors and managers. Poor and low morale on staff. Multiple injured staff. High turn over. Strategically low pay rates for any new employees after 2015. Pay differences range between $8-$15hr for staff doing the same job
Pros
Receiving alchohol and tips from customers for favors
Cons
Injury and hguh turn over

Bosses don't care
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, ON17 March 2018
The commision set up is low compared to other companies. If you don't make your KPI's every month they threaten to replace you. If they have to top you up on pays to minimum wage they claw it back on the next pay that you are above min wage. The hours suck and you never have any weekends off.
Pros
Co workers are amazing
Cons
Commision system is flawed, no real bonuses for reaching targets

the store is alright to work in, the people are really what makes it good place to work, however there is still the traditional cut throat sales approach on the floor so be prepared
