Grossly underpaid for the type of work.

Answered

At one point I was cut down (with no notice or explanation) from ~23 hours weekly to 5. Not long after that I was being called the night before to be asked to cover shifts. At one point, they gave my hours to a new hire and told me to "earn them." The schedule sometimes also changes last minute with no real notice. Other than that, the hours are pretty much set. Someone opens and someone else closes each day (exclusing Sundays.)

30% off product. 70% off engraving.

Answered

Proper spelling and grammar. The person that wrote this question would need some help.

Attention to detail, willingness to learn new skills, independent working, and having a good attitude. Every day you should be satisfied with creating a keepsake/memory/gift for someone. YOU were picked to be that person, be honoured and grateful.

And love engraving! Engrave everything you can! Plastic, metal, glass, wood... just keep practicing to get your skills impecible.

Answered

Fellow colleagues within the store are family. DM and anyone above that see you as a number and don't care about you. Instead of offering solutions to increase sales, they blame front line staff.

Answered

Treat front line staff with respect and offer guidance. Many people leave because the DM is rude, demeaning and overall stresses everyone out. I have seen many staff in my year break down in tears and quit because of the DM solely.

Answered

Dealing with a district manager who does not know how to respect people, or human life.

Answered

If I needed a day of absence from work, my team, manager & district manager were flexible. As there are numerous locations in Ottawa, replacements are able to be called in from any of them.
