    Pros

    employee discount on merchandise and benefits

    Cons

    Very stressful atmosphere, managers are no help, they just think about getting stuff sold and reaching their monthly quota so they can get their bonuses at the end of the month and screwing customers over with poor customer service. Lots of favoritism and gossip like no other workplace I've ever been too, pretty much like high school. Wouldn't recommend working at the brick at all or buying from them. Once I find another job, I am gone in a second, I won't even give them 2 weeks notice because of the stress they brought upon me at the workplace.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Brick (Regina, SK (Canada)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    straightforward, lots of paperwork... problem was that the staff at this location were all under 30, and it did not feel like an extremely competent employer. I left after the interview convinced this was not a place to spend anymore of my time in.
