Friendly coworkers lacking managerial leadership
Stocker (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 4 December 2017
For me in my department, the workload was heavy but adhered to a task list. Certain deliveries would come in around the same times and we would work the rest of the stock depending on that schedule. We would also do other tasks that most regular associates would not be doing, such as setting up stock displays and ordering merchandise. I learned how to work in a team and how to teach others how to carry out their duties. Management was very lax at this location and the blame would more than often fall on the associates rather than the management. The hardest part of the job, in my opinion, was trying to get everything done within the workday. There were even times where I would willingly skip my breaks in order to get more work completed. However, most of the time, that would prompt me to leave work earlier to make up for the lost break. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the people. The return customers who know you and are familiar with the store, as well as the associates who you share the workplace with. Their friendliness helped me stay in that job for over five years.
Good associates, good benefits, a decent discount on all items
Large workloads, lazy managers, lack of stock for customers
