    Heartless company that only wants money and a good image but the rumours are true about what you hear

    Management (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people work there. Some good management. 10% discount. Job security if you are a associate but not as management

    ConsNot enough pay. No advancement unless you are female. WIR is what they care about. Low budgets for payroll and in achievable sales budget so they don't have to pay out bonus to management and associates.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember humans work for you. They need good wages help them not verbally direct them. More full time positions 40% is not good. Forget WIR as you can see promoting people because of gender is the same as not hiring because of gender. Promote on capability and capacity. You are going to continue losing people

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Assistant Manager

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGreat place to start a managers career. They will give you a chance to move up.

    ConsThe job is a lifestyle, no real balance of work life, lots of divorces for long term employees do to job hours. Not for lone wolfs, socialization is key to move up in the company,not how hard you work. If management you are not Human, and can not have feelings all activities are black and white no shades of gray.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to retain good workers, there is to high of a turnover 46% at most locations, so you are ending up with just body's. Properly fill department , the business will prosper for it.

    Management kisses butt.

    CSM (Current Employee) Regina, SK (Canada)

    ProsLiked the people I worked with
    Enjoyed the CBLS
    Loved being able to help people.

    ConsManagement treats the staff like crap and they don't care about how you feel as long as they get their bonuses. They push the mastercard like crazy and it make it out to be the CSM's fault when the store isn't getting them. Frankly, if the cashier isn't asking and we've told them to ask, there's nothing more we can do. If they don't want to ask, they aren't going to ask. The management needs to try getting on tills and selling it and then maybe then they'll learn how difficult our jobs are.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to treat your staff properly and maybe you'll keep people.

    Don't change who you are

    Management (Current Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    ProsLots of room for advancement if you are prepared to make sacrifices

    ConsYou have to drink the kool aid to move ahead. Corporate culture is in constant clash with excessive internal politics.

    Corporate values are great on paper though not enforced properly

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe yourself

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
