Better pay and hours are needed.
Reciever (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 14 December 2017
I will start off with what I did like about the store:
Management is really good with time off (never had a single request denied, even in December)
20% discount on pretty much anything in store.
If you work in the back end, you are always on the day shift and don't do closings.
However, there are several drawbacks:
You do not get a raise even after being there over a year.
They rarely hire non management as full time, so there is no benefits.
Meaningless rules about dress code (no jeans on Saturdays, but on Fridays its ok)
Expect open availability only to work you 16 hours a week
I feared getting sick because I couldn't afford to take extra unpaid days off.
Management could work on communication (Been told the same thing by 5 different people within a few minutes).
They've predetermined who they want to move up in the company and who will stay part time until they leave. If you want to be a manager, work here a year or two and then apply at another place.
Part time hours do not cut it forever for most people. This is why most employees there are in college or semi retired.
I would of been happier working here if I hadn't felt like I was barely scraping by.
No stress about time off
Does not pay enough, no raises unless you get promoted
