Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 7 August 2019
As a sales associate, you can expect to be loaded with tasks. The work atmosphere is often stressful and it is hard to enjoy work when management and coworkers are calling for help all around the store due to them constantly being understaffed. The management tries their best to be accommodating to employees and would be a great student job, due to the hours. This job includes heavy lifting, janitorial duties (such as cleaning washrooms) as well as, monthly mandatory quizzes and of course, traditional associate duties.

Assistant Manager Merchandise (Former Employee) – Stratford, ON – 13 February 2019
A great company to work for as an associate but as soon as you climb the ranks and get into management it does become apparent that if you have any morals at all that they will be a detriment to your position.
great staff discount percentages throughout the year
low work life balance once into management unless you are fine with it
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 February 2019
it is a great place to start your work life for a long time. But salary is low and your schedule depends on store sales which mean that sometimes will be a full week and sometimes two or one shift per week. managers are okay but nobody after and of the day don cares about you or your needs. they just expect you to work as hard as you can and as much as you can for 15$ an hour. so in two weeks, you earn less then 240$. They expect too much for that much money. And don even asks about benefits.
It is fun, and you learn lots and friendly most of the time.

Markdown Coordinator (Current Employee) – Oakville, ON – 20 January 2019
The people make the job fun. Long hours during Christmas time being short staffed. Communication between management it challenging at times. Hardest part of the job is being short staffed and not having the right of amount of hours per job.
Associate (Former Employee) – Okotoks, AB – 19 January 2019
Very flexible hours and great for students. Shifts range from 4 hours to 8 1/2 hours. Trained in multiple areas and the store prides itself on customer service. Decent lunch breaks, however if you work less than 5 hours you only get a 15 minute unpaid break. Coworkers were very fun to work with and I still consider some friends to this day.
Very stubborn customers, however some customers are very nice.
