    Pros

    Being a company that's goal-driven, invested in making employees happy, and planning with succession strategies always encourages me to be 100% all the time.

    Cons

    Not specifically the company at but rather very specific co-workers I've worked with (that you would find in any workplace): when people are emotional, it is difficult to stay positive.

    Advice to Management

    Stay positive, keep encouraging, always use positive reinforcement, and lead by example. Doing this, and results will come.

    Pros

    Lots of growth potential. Some of the greatest people working in upper management that always help promote. They stand by there people and pay very well. One of the few Canadian retailers who have zero debt, as a corporation that is awesome. They must be doing something right. Discount is great and product is very fashionable. They stand by what they sell.

    Cons

    Since pay is very well bonuses don't happen that often, because sales quotas are through the roof. High pressure during slow seasons. Lots of turn over in staff. They promote work life balance but don't really stand by it. Incentives take months to get to you. Part timers are paid minimum wage and are pushed to sell astronomical numbers.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great work team, amazing environment, and mind blowing discounts!

    Cons

    Little low on the pay, huge selling expectations, hours for associates depend on the amount of selling they do.

    Advice to Management

    Always be straight up and honest about whatever it is you're doing; don't try to take shortcuts because you will be caught. & always talk to HR or you store manager if there is anything out of the normal going on.
