Great Team and Managers
This was a great interim job while in between travelling or looking for something more closely related to my degree. Standard retail role but most people working with you are into the outdoors so can find hiking/climbing/inset other outdoor activity buddies and there are some good discounts on gear! Long hours and can sometimes be quiet especially on the later shifts.
Pros
Flexible managers and great staff to work with; reasonable discounts on gear.
Cons
Pay is very low for London, Shift work may mean lost weekends etc

Waste of time
The management doesn't care about the employees. Vaughan Mills store manager was the worst. They don't care how hard you work or not. so much favouritism.

Very inviting place to work especially if you love the outdoors and customer service. Management was super understanding and allowed days off. Shifts are easily switched with coworkers. Good hours.

Loved it!
Loved every second of working here. Was promoted within my first 2 weeks. Only downfall is they accused me of stealing when it was a different coworker who had quit a few weeks before. Was fired due to past coworkers theft.

Horaire
Pas d'heures à moins de faire parti de la gestion puisque la compagnie VF n'offre que des positions à temps partiels.

Terrible senior management
I loved working there until I left and senior management was responsible for my ROE. They don’t understand Canadian protocol so they made a huge mistake on my ROE and because i left for maternity leave it ended up hurting me later on. After a huge ordeal of trying to figure out what had happened, we discovered that the North Face had made a mistake. When I tried to call the headquarters to find out what had happened they dodged my calls and emails until I threatened a lawsuit and then proceeded to tell me there was nothing they could do because the person who had made the mistake was no longer working there as they were fired for being incompetent. So, because I couldn’t actually afford to take them to court, I am stuck, 3 years later, still paying the debt to the CRA because of a mistake that North Face made. If you are Canadian and going on maternity leave or EI following employment here, be careful.
Pros
Great teamwork at the location itself
Cons
Terrible senior management as an American based company

A workplace that actually cares about the employee
Work was never stressful, there's always an opportunity to move up in the company. The culture was energetic and fun. My co workers were my favourite part of the job. Everyone was hardworking and always had a smile on their faces.

Great opportunity to work with a top brand
Truly exciting experience working alongside a CEO of a major company who has created a powerful brand. This initially opened my eyes to my potential and the possibilities that are available in the world if you are willing to remain persistent and diligent in the pursuit to a successful career.
