    I have been working at Talize part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Positive and friendly co-workers, polite and down to earth supervisors, excellent training program, charity involvement, great store hours, in store discount, fulfilling work environment, supervisors/management complement you when you're working hard

    Cons

    underpaid for amount of work done, favoritism by upper management, far too physically demanding for minimum wage, scattered responsibilities, managers always being fired, production is mismanaged

    Advice to Management

    OSD is a physically and mentally demanding position that Talize takes for granted. They give us 3 sections of the store to maintain as well as the front donation area and the back (which we have to be at within 7 seconds). Since you're paying minimum wage students take the job and it's not done as well as it should be. If Talize were to raise their wage for OSD and similar positions even by 1 doller the workers would be happier, work harder and the turnover would go down significantly. It's a excellent place to work, just underpaid.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Talize (Hamilton, ON (Canada)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Two step interview process, first the generic past employer questions and general information about yourself. afterwards, a manager asked questions generally regarding past work experiences and how you reacted to those experiences. Very little personal questions, none of which were unprofessional. The interview was quick and to the point with a very laid back and relaxed vibe. I walked away with a smile.
