Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 5 December 2017
Genuinely a fun place to work. You get to experience so many different customers and help them find different things. I worked in the baby dept. and it was honestly so rewarding helping new parents find what they needed and answering their questions about different things.
great place to work if you are great at selling store warranty
seasonal full time cashier (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 28 November 2017
management was great so long as you meet the quota for store warranty which i think is little high. the person that trained me was very understanding and if you need help with your till there was lot was someone who could help you.

Cashier (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 November 2017
the most enjoyable part of the job is working with people you get along with, as well as the days we get stock of things such as (hatchimals) the way the kids get excited, just brought a smile to my face. The managers were all very kind and caring
500/Warehouse (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 22 November 2017
Co-workers made all the difference, learned a lot about toys and educational sets, bike repairs, and assembling the demo furniture and the fixtures. Management wasn't always thrilled about individual thinking and protected themselves to a point where any complaint about the director or assistant director to head office was given to said individuals to handle. They preferred to have their favorites in store over hard workers
Cashier (Former Employee) – Quebec City, QC – 20 November 2017
you always had toversale all the items in the store. You were given an amount of things to sale fr the week and if that wasnt reached youd end up in the office about not upsalling batterys for example. too many toys had to be undergarentee and not all the clients wanted too. some coworkers werent too happy to work with women. the men werent from a culter where woman are allowed to work n be independent.
SESONAL ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 19 November 2017
the job was low paying with bad hours and the management did not care about the staff as they fired most of the staff on Christmas eve and they did it by posting it on the wall instead of talking to people.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 17 November 2017
My main reason for the bad rating as i was hired a week ago as a cashier but was put on a very early start time of 6am till 2pm well store dont open till 10am most days so they had me packaging online orders an putting them into boxes, also had ro replenish the boxes at end of shift. Now i got one 4 hour training day on cash an bekng a cashier thought i did good but to only be let go the following day. Now i did mention to them i had 2 herniated buldging disks in my back an that i shouldnt be picking up over 50 lbs. They were ok with that but yet had me doing the job they gave me. I think it is really unfair to say your a cashier so they can pay you minimum wage then put you in the warehouse breaking yourself daily to keep up with demand of orders. Overall the working enviroment is constantly changing with demand an staff are great. Management on the other hand not so much. I was told not to rake it personal but how cant i when i told them about my disibility an they just ignored it apparently.
Got off at 2pm.
Management, Poor wage for work load, Early start times 6am, Told im a cashier but worked in warehouse the whole time
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Greater Sudbury, ON – 17 November 2017
I worked here when they first opened in town and thought at first it was a good place. Then when I couldn't sell the protection plan on products i started to lose hours on my schedule. I ended up having to find other work elsewhere and when I did I informed management of my new availability and they scheduled me to work when I needed to be at my other job. I ended up quitting. Then was slandered by someone that worked there. I went to management and NOTHING was done about it.
As a seasonal sales associate I did not receive sufficient training and was rushed to perform tasks by myself. Shifts are few and far apart.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 10 November 2017
As a seasonal sales associate the shifts given are very few and far apart. The management was very disorganized and rude, however the manager specifically was very nice and pleasant to work with. As a seasonal worker I did not receive much training, and was rushed to perform tasks by myself during busy times. Appropriate help was not received. Store directory was very rude to deal with, I had a very negative experience specially with this.
*good people to work with
Too many to list but here are a few: Lack of training, bad management, shifts are few and far apart
