    No balance between work and personal life

    Store Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat place to work if you love working in retail and with clothes. My co-workers are great people to work with. Bonus incentives monthly.

    ConsAbsolutely no balance between personal life and work. No weekends off. Very demanding company as far as expectations of managers. Salary does not equate to the amount of the work load consistently put on management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI suggest cutting down the required management hours (44) and the required "set schedule".

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

    Currently working at YM banner of Suzy Shier

    Upper Management (Current Employee)

    ProsOver the past 20 years I have grown and advanced through hard work. Management see the work you put in and you are rewarded accordingly.
    The clothes are great and very affordable and the people you work with are generally very goo too but that usually depends on their attitudes.

    ConsI wish benefits were better and that there was an rasp plan.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThank you for providing me with a job that has taken me many places. I believe you get what you put into your job but not all companies recognize and reward accordingly. SUZY SHIER does!

    Mediocre

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    ProsMeet new people
    Co-workers take their job seriously

    ConsLow pay - min wage unless you're Asst. Mgr or Mgr.
    Working extra hours without getting paid because budget was not made so mgr has to cut our hours. Still have to stay and clean although systems are shut down and we are logged off meaning we're technically off work already yet still working.

    Worse retailer ever

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Edmonton, AB (Canada)

    ProsGood coworkers, staying a little bit longer just for them.

    ConsTerrible pay, overworked like slaves, too many task to do at one time, budget is impossible to reach

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour company is corrupt, all you do is overwork everyone and you're greedy as hell. It's no wonder employees quit under a year.

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

    Nice people, bad company

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Saskatoon, SK (Canada)

    ProsThe discount is excellent with clothes already cheap. I love my co-workers and my managers, they treat me as an equal and can ask questions without being criticized.

    ConsIt's minimum wage so not the greatest. They don't give information out ahead of time, sometimes finding out your schedule a day before you work. Asked to do too many things at once, and can't accomplish everything.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMoD, try to stay out on the floor, we can't handle everything ourselves while you go off doing god knows what.
    Higher up people - Don't give us such high expectations, we can't get a $5000 budget on a Wednesday during the middle of winter. Let more people work at one time, I can't be expected to achieve amazing customer service if I have to clean fitting rooms, unpack new merchandise, and be a cashier at the same time.
