Was good for one year
Cashier/Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Kamloops, BC11 May 2019
I worked here for almost three years and it was good for the first year,but the longer I was there the worse it became. I started up front as a cashier doing part time hours which wasn't to bad aside from the management being unhelpful and making you figure out how to do stuff on your own. I need full time hours and after months of having to prove myself the finally moved me to the back to production to put items on the floor. Those were the worst few months of my life, the management screamed at you no matter what you were doing and everyone called it the sweat shop (for obvious reasons). Also you get a raise every year, I think over the course of three years with all my raised combined I got a whopping $.30 raise for my three years there.

a supportive and trustworthy workplace
Cashier (Current Employee) –  Yorkton, SK3 June 2018
A typical day at work consists of helping costumers find items, hanging clothing, and supplying costumer service. The management is very nice, but can be rude and tough on workers at times. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to communicate with the costumers and getting to meet new people, and the hardest part of the job is just keeping the store neat and tidy for customers all day long and supplying good service that will please everybody.
Pros
a good amount of breaks per shift
Cons
long hours and scheduling

Cashier (Current Employee) –  regina6 May 2015
I work cash so typical day i work with customers. Iv learned how to ask for help when needed, how to work with others. My managers are very helpful and kind. my co-workers are very fun to be around and also help when asked. Hardest part about my job is dealing with hard customers and now knowing what to do. best part abo0ut my job is how many hours i get to work.
Pros
lots of hours
Cons
busy
