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.

Fun workplace

Fun place to work because of co-workers, you learn new skills on how to fold and tidy clothes. Depending on the store, management can be good or bad. Good place to work.

- very demanding workplace - very fast-paced - the hardest part would be trying to meet company expectations because it is a very different environment in comparison to other workplaces - trying to replicate a similar workplace culture and environment to their Japanese stores

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.

Tiring and stressful

Work becomes excessive and stressful while environment is not well maintained. Coworkers are fun and the main reason everyone is still staying to work.

Made a lot of memories

As much as I loved the energy and liveliness working at Uniqlo, the overall weight management puts on your back is too much. Though I was able to make longlasting friends.


Good breaks, good pay, employee discount


Long hours, management

UNIQLO is very welcoming, but can be strict

I understand that as part of the UNIQLO company standards, there are certain expectations that they have on you. Although they try their best to make you feel like a part of the team, sometimes (from personal experience) you can feel the favoritism sometimes and I wish they can be a little bit more lenient and understanding to those who are in emotional distress.

Don't work here if you have a choice

Friendly Co-workers but management is terrible, favouritism, long hours, breaks are too short and very poor attendence policy. If you have a choice go work at somewhere else, this is a very tiring job which can actually stress you out.


Salary is higher than normal retail jobs


Short Breaks, poor attendance policy

Great Coworkers In a Very Stressful Environment

A typical day at work depends on whether you have an opening, mid, or closing shift. During a morning shift, you would spend time cleaning the store, and opening specific functions (cash, for example). Mid shift is pretty straight forward, you do whatever you're assigned to. Closing is always stressful. There are so many tasks to do and there are a lot of expectations of the closing team. You do learn how to manage your time and set goals to achieve them. What I like about the company is that they really encourage growth. A big part of working here is being able to work as a team. Being in alterations, however I felt that I was constantly ignored by management. As a lead, I requested more people to be trained and maintenance for some equipment. They waited until things started to break to fix/replace them, and also gave me less time. Really the most enjoyable part of the job is working with amazing coworkers that help relieve the stress of working at Uniqlo.


Great employee discount, good breaks, wonderful coworkers, great salary for a retail job


Favouritism amongst employees, Unrealistic expectations from managers

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

Productive, Fast paced, Fun

Working at Uniqlo is fun and productive. It can get really busy sometimes but having a helping and friendly colleagues is always helpful. Management is always guiding and concerned about your growth.

The worst work place

Do you really want to work in a place where they have favoritism? It would be hard for you to advance if you are not Korean nor Japanese. That's the hard truth. They will ask a lot from you but barely actually acknowledge your hard work. They will say "Thank you for your hardwork" just for the purpose of saying it but not really mean it. Yeah, they pay above minimum but how about your work/life balance? If you are full time, you are basically owned by this company. If you are a student, they will still require a lot from you and it will not be easy for you to balance school, life, and work, which will just give you more stress on top of your school stress. They are unfair to their employees. It may not seem like they are nice, but if you dig down, there's actually a lot of dirt going on. I have been working here for the longest time. I have seen it all. Believe in my word. Good luck to you.


above minimum pay


too many too mention

Productive and sales driven environment

Management techniques and inventory handling skills are learnt within couple of days of working work place culture is great as Japanese enterprises have at its best Different race religion and creed working on big platform is good to be a part and learn new things the hardest part of the job would be managing fitting room where people are allowed to try every wear the most enjoyable part is arranging and displaying new stock


discounts on company wear


long hours and short breaks

High opportunity for advancement

The opportunity to advance in the company is better than most with a chance for promotion every few months. It is structured to keep the promotional process fair and to give all employees the opportunity to advance.
