Sales associate (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 17 May 2018
need to know how to sell if you want to work here otherwise you wont last very long. great benefits and good potential for advancement. Management probably the most friendly youll ever meet. Again, hardest part of the job is driving sales.
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 April 2018
I would usually come into work early and wait in the back until my shift started. after that i would just punch in and get to work. The job was fairly simple: sell items and go on break was is a good summary. All the co-workers and the management team were very kind and really responsible. The work place was very relaxing. I loved helping out customers, interacting and bonding with them. That was a key part of being a sales associate.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 15 January 2018
What I learned at work is to be more visualized and focus towards the customers. I also learned how to have a decent conversation with customers. The management is ideal towards a retail store. The workplace culture is enjoyable. The hardest part of the job is making a good amount of sales for my commission. The most enjoyable part of the job is working there with everyone.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 28 November 2017
I was a former sales associate for Vans and I loved every minute of it. The staff always made me feel welcome and we all supported each other as a team. The customers are always pleasant which made every day a pleasure to go to work. If I hadn't had to leave due to school, I would still be there. The company encourages individuality and passion among its staff and the company's enthusiastic attitude comes across in the artistic products it sells.
Great Staff, Great Company, Good-quality Merchandise, Positive Work Atmosphere
Sales associate (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 26 October 2017
Really cool place to work, pretty much exactly what you would expect when you walk in. Full of good people. Not always a ton of traffic but almost always tasks to be done. Great for starting out, wouldn't recommend as a career.
Sales Associate and Cashier (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 19 May 2017
Some people gossip a lot and don't stay true to each other as a team. The manager is really nice but almost every assistant manager will be hypocritical. Not the best environment to work on if you want to have a good job experience.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 30 April 2017
The most important thing I learned was how to handle situations involving a a disrespectful customer and fellow employees who were not suitable for a management position. Putting my differences aside allowed me to build relationships with my coworkers and provided a better experience for the customers.
