    I worked at Atmosphere part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Loved working here! Everyone was very friendly and overall helpful when needed. My store was attached to a Sport Chek store and not only the Atmosphere employees but also the sport chek employees were very helpful. Was given good training and given the resources I needed to do my job. Would definitely recommend!

    Cons

    Not many hours snd shifts were short (4-5 hours)

    I have been working at Atmosphere part-time

    Pros

    Cost plus 10% Discount, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Minimum Wage, no opportunity to move up

    Advice to Management

    The manager had no idea he was hiring people at a higher rate than employees that were hired years before, refused to give an increase in wage since the minimum wage in BC was going up to 12.65

    I have been working at Atmosphere full-time

    Pros

    Great staff working with you with common interests. For most part timers this is there second job. The staff discounts are great, and if you meet the companies goals, a little tough lately, but you get bonuses. Canadian Tire is not only the owners of us they are updating our systems to go forward in this computer savvy market.

    Cons

    Training for moving up in the company is hard, as the company head office for our branch is in Calgary, and the Canadian Tire head office is in Ontario. This put advancing in the company a little harder only if your willing to move.

    Advice to Management

    If there is interest for staff to train for the next step in the company, don't put it off. If the staff feel they aren't learning they will move to another company that will. Some managers are sexist, but the company is not.

    I worked at Atmosphere full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Discount, schedule flexibility, quality products.

    Cons

    Unprofessional, narrow-minded upper management. Micro-managing. Disjointed communication, Phony customer service expectations, laughable bonus structure, no work/ personal life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro-managing SGM's and their stores. Treat your managers with respect and invest in your employees with actual payroll $$, not phony lip service. Back up your store managers once in awhile.
