    Pros

    Some coworkers were great to work with.

    Cons

    No room for growth or additional responsibilities - makes increasing salary basically impossible.

      • Career Opportunities
      Former Employee - Sales Associate/Cashier in Tillsonburg, ON

      I worked at TSC Stores part-time

      Pros

      Diversified inventory a good learning experience on how to handle toxic managers

      Cons

      Manager needs a course in Managment . 40 years has kept him in the Dark Ages.

      Advice to Management

      Take a Human Resourse course ! Education is good ! A toxic Manager polluts the working environment and transfers it to family friends and customers , especially in a small town like Tillsonburg.

      I worked at TSC Stores full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Amazing colleagues - really a team effort and everyone is ready to jump in and help out

      Cons

      Senior management on the marketing side is really oblivious to time restrictions and process bottlenecks - also overrides most opinions with no explanation. Leads to a lot of work needing to be re done last minute and worse work from the employees because it ends up being rushed.

      Advice to Management

      Start asking your entry-mid level employees what actually matters to them - they make your business run. Without them you wouldn't be able to do much let alone but together 6-10 flyers (your main business driver) together in advance.

      I worked at TSC Stores full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Customers and staff. Pay was ok. Good work /Life balance.

      Cons

      Scheduling budgets are set too low. Cold use more staff on the sales floor. Too much for the management to do. They have to work the sales floor due to not enough staff and get their duties done on time.

      Advice to Management

      Need more staff in the floor to serve the customers and work the stock and do seasonal sets.

      I worked at TSC Stores full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      customers are regulars, very friendly and laid back. Very quiet store if you like that.Hours are not as late as some retail stores have.

      Cons

      Never enough staff. No raises.Stock often arrives so dirty, ordering is way off too much of things they don't need and not enough for the farmers. Focus is on little things and not important things, like 15+ lights blown out, huge holes in the floor, broken doors ect...

      Advice to Management

      Most Dep. managers get there because no one applies so they bump up some part time person to management with no experience. Managers are treated badly by the DM.
