Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
You are expected to work 9hrs a day if you have a full-time position. sometimes they ask to extend even more hours depending on business needs. Management is extremely strict for just a regular retail job, high expectations for basic pay. This position is great if you are someone who is looking to work lots of hours but if you want a work life balance, this is not a job for you. It is extremely micromanaged and super strict with the policies. For example, even if you are late for two minutes, they will ask you for a picture proof of why you were late. This job asks too much from you and drains all your energy.

If you love to work great! If no…then no!

Compared to most retail jobs, Uniqlo is more challenging. It’s definitely not a beginner joh but you can apply as a first time part timer and learn so much from this company. You just need to be willing to learn and show some dedication! They’re flexible with scheduling and the work culture and ethic is really tight. Although it is said that they have strict policies and rules to follow, it’s not difficult. Any job would ask for an explanation for lateness and documents to support your cause. HR & management is very responsive and timely with these things. As a full timer, it’s demanding but that’s what you sign up for. They’re very transparent with what they ask of you in the beginning so it’s important to note this as you work 5 days a week. You can grow quite fast in the company with the opportunities they give out. If you’re looking for a job that gives you many hours, pays well, and allows room for growth, then Uniqlo is the place to be!

Productive and fun enviroment

Overall, Uniqlo is a good workplace. Everyone who works there are all friendly and kind, schedule and hours is alright. The management is good. Except for the fact that during October to January is blackout season means no vacations or time offs for both Full and Part-time works.

They got mad because I couldn't work on a day I said I wasn't available for

I worked at sq 1 when it opened I had to wear an eyepatch due to an injury and everyone made fun of me, they got angry because I said I couldn't work on a certain day because of school. they made me go all the way to Vaughn and Eaton center and wasn't compensated for it. They had time targets which is understandable, but gave me impossible assignments on my own while everyone else was in teams of 4. They had us work overtime and never mentioned it was optional and ended up working to almost 11 sometimes or later. Customers complained to me all the time on how several times my coworkers were rude where even the higher ups on the floor would make them angry. Very strict on sales associates but very loose when it comes to working rights.

Very isolating environment, but has its benefits

If you are not a part of the dominant racial group there you will feel very isolated. There is a lot of favouritism, and they also work you like crazy. There will be periods where you work 35 hours a week part time, then periods when you work 2-3 shifts a month. Very unstable. But the pay is good and there is opportunity to increase your salary, the job itself is also very simple and easy.

Great part time job

If you’re a high school student or full time college/university student looking for PT job, then working at UNIQLO is definitely beneficial for you. That’s if you’re okay with inconsistent hours and working maybe 1-2 times a week during slow season, and not really depending on the job to pay for your bills. There is high level of favouritism, but that generally applies in every work place that I’ve been at. You will meet all kinds of people working here (from colleagues to customers). Overall, this is a pretty good retail job in comparison to a lot of other places. I really think working here will help you grow and build a thick skin in the retail industry as they do teach you a lot. Though you can only stay here for so long before you realize that it can only be a temporary job that only certain people are capable of succeeding in moving up the ladder.

amazing work environment

a typrical day at work would be to come in 10 minutes before your shift, write down your schedule for the day, write down the store's target and then clock in and wait for team talk. the management and everyone is very friendly. they all treat one another like family which is very nice. we all like to joke around with one another which is nice. during training you will learn all the basic need as a sales associate: such as knowing being cash trained, fitting room trained, alteration, stock room/rp and many more things.


pays really well


sucks if your a part timer and it's low peak season
