Clerk in Victoria, BC

Clerk
The people were very nice work was easy and schedules were open but staffing issues made things troublesome and the pay is very low for todays economy.

Good people
I liked the people I worked with. The managers were always quite understanding and always did their best to accommodate everyone. That being said, it was still minimum wage and the hours were never consistent unless you asked for it a few times.

stressful, fast paced
rude customers, disorganized management, kept changing the schedule without alerting employees. wasn't paid time and a half even though I worked holidays. coworkers were nice though.
Bakery Clerk in North Vancouver, BC
on 2 July 2022
Very stressful environment
People constantly quitting. One person is usually having to work two positions with minimum wage or just slightly above. Management doesn’t listen and doesn’t care. Will very much guilt trip you into not taking vacation time.
Clerk in Quadra
on 15 June 2022
Not bad for a first job or while going to school.
The job can be stressful depending on which store you work at but if you get a slow store expect very little work and boring shifts. The job itself is whatever but if you can get good managers like I did then you are set in terms of scheduling and time off.
