    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at Town Shoes part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Its an upbeat, dynamic environment to work in requiring confidence and social skills. Current staff/managers are really open to answering questions a new associate like myself may ask. They have a great benefits program (40% off merchandise). Learning a lot!

    Cons

    The backroom of the location I am working at is a complete safety hazard regarding space. There is NOT enough space to even open up the ladder to reach the boxes in the upper shelves! The layout and safety of employees definitely NEEDS to be reconsidered. Its especially difficult and DANGEROUS to be on the top steps of the ladder, reaching for 2+ shoe boxes, and trying to make your way down a wobbly ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reassess the amount of traffic each location gets and the amount of shoes AND space in the back room in comparison. It would make it much for efficient to locate products when associates are not fearing for their safety.
