Fun place to work, great environment but no room for advancement
Key Holder, Fashion Associate and Visual Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 8 November 2019
The store I worked in had a great environment, we had lots of fun! No personal sales targets which was awesome, just an overall store goal so not competitive. Tons of learning to be done, a lot of product knowledge handed out with every new thing they came out with (which I loved). Downside literally no where to grow. No room for overall advancement, especially if you are considered young.
A good place to start your career and get your feet wet, but not your forever home. Provides the opportunity to try many things; however, this is also because they run understaffed (so be ready to do 3 jobs for the price of one).
Half Fridays all year round, but are strict about breaks, lunches and work hours. Pay is below market value. benefits are average, no RRSP options, but clothing discount is good.
Overall, do it to start your career, but not a place to grow.
