    I have been working at Roots Canada part-time

    Pros

    Monetary incentives to meet attainable sales targets which are a huge plus; well structured and organized company; friendly co-workers sans drama; and management that checks in often to see if there is any support you feel you are lacking from them.

    Cons

    You must be aware of where everyone is at all times in the store. Which makes sense but it can be tricky since you may also be trying to give a customer your complete attention. Call-in shifts, although to be expected, are never anyone's idea of a great way to start out what could be a potential day off. Although getting an awesome discount at all Roots across the country is awesome it is slightly disappointing that it is strongly discouraged that you wear clothing from, let's say, a Roots73 when you work at Roots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Roots has little pamphlets by the cashiers counter that tell you a little bit about a variety of things such as their environmental and charity efforts. I think we could use one to explain the outsourcing of labour for some of the items made abroad. I have often gotten questions of people concerned when they read a tag and the product was made elsewhere. I think pamphlets could help inform staff of what to say as well as provide reading for the customer to turn to. I also think that a little regional competition for more sales is absolutely healthy but since the company is owned in its entirety by the original CEO it would be nice if we could wear any Roots products- regardless of the store it came from. It would also add a little more colour and showcase more that Roots has to offer as a whole rather than seeing 3 of the 5 staff on any given day wearing the same shirt. But overall I must say that I have always been a fan of Roots and my experience working for the company has only increased my level of respect.
