Excellent employee culture, frustrating upper management culture
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 4 April 2017
Typical day was fun and task-filled with steady customer interactions. I've learned interpersonal, operational, supervisory, and managerial skills, as well as patience and focus. Management were generally very encouraging and supportive but rarely responsive to feedback. Workplace culture is what you made of it but generally solid and fun. Hardest part of the job was balancing increasing operational task loads with high service expectations and strict deadlines/sales goals. The most enjoyable part of the job was the staff and customers and being surrounded by the products we know and love!
Staff discount, excellent co-workers, benefits and RRSP's for FT.
Reduced hours, increased operational task loads, high service expectations and sales attachment rates.
