    Pros

    The other employees I met some amazing people that are now great friends too bad management was horrible

    Cons

    Bad management team if the manager didn't like you you basically had no hours and they gossiped about workers with other employees

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you listen to the workers and don't treat them like they don't matter

  3. The people were the best part, but there were not enough hours.

    Pros

    Any job can we wonderful if you like youre coworkers, and I did, we were a team. They took a chance on me when I didnt have any experinece working retail.

    Cons

    Hours were few and far between and it was very difficult to get promoted unless you spent most of your pay check in-store.

    Advice to Management

    Hire in-country, I watched several american managers come and go who clearly didn't like us Canadians, it made for a toxic work environment.

    Pros

    flexible shifts, fine clothing, store is pretty organized, on time lunch breaks and respect ones religious values.

    Cons

    keep hiring new staff instead of giving shifts to existing employees, the discount doesnt apply to clearance/sale items, some rude managers, and doesnt contribute to providing snacks on boxing day/black Friday.

    Advice to Management

    Train managers to retain employees.

    Pros

    Strong company that wants to see you succeed, internal promotion, lots of interaction with corporate heads both on the phone and in person, great place to learn visual standards and strong management practices

    Cons

    not for those afraid of hard work, but otherwise can't think of much if anything worth mentioning. Some locations there can be cliques and drama but not at mine

    Advice to Management

    Say what you mean, mean what you say, stick to the principles we are supposed to adhere to, and be more open to questions --that's how people learn.

    Pros

    Great policies, cares about their employees, great views on customer experience

    Cons

    Low volume stores don't get enough product, sometimes the hours are hard to run the store effectively

    Advice to Management

    Try and find better ways to get best selling products to all stores. Try to find a way to raise the base hours for smaller stores to give us more to work with.
