Written by Store Front (Former Employee) from Waterloo, ON on 31 May 2020
As a student, I was able to fit in my work schedule with school. They always provide flexibility and it is important to have as a student.

Furthermore, the management is by far the best I've ever worked for. They are extremely invested in making sure students' experiences are enhanced.
