Amazing co-workers, limited hours
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 August 2018
I have never worked in a place that had such incredible people. The majority of women I work with are amazing and kind and helpful. The employee discount is fantastic, and they sometimes offer free items or a bigger discount. Many customers leave happier than they came in, and that’s very rewarding. However, the hours are low - this is because stores are required to have a certain number of staff, which doesn’t necessarily make sense for the size of the store. And then when sales/conversion goals aren’t the staff’s hours get cut sometimes. So it’s overstaffing vs cut hours, it doesn’t add up to much. Most of the staff have multiple jobs, as 3-6 hours a week doesn’t cut it. Depending on district, you may also not have the opportunity to advance in the company. People stay for the discount and great environment though - you don’t find that in many places!
Great coworkers, great discount, very rewarding to make people feel good
Short hours, no advancement
