    Pros

    There was opportunity if you wanted to take advantage of it.

    Once the company was unable to maintain the top line it started the progressive cost cutting measures that inevitably led to its closure.

    I worked at Zellers part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people are great to work with.

    Cons

    Management is lacking in areas. Safety was lacking in many departments, especially the back stock rooms and basement stock room.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more positive outlook about the company. Have more patience with younger employees. Have more respect for the employees working for you.


  9. A poor work experience

    I worked at Zellers full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers were friendly, team environment was the only thing good about working for this company.

    Cons

    Poor management on all levels lead to a demeaning work experience and caused extremely high turnover in the organization. Eventually Zellers went out of business.

    Pros

    best group of co-workers. all supervisors were very friendly, accommodating and always willing to help, very flexible with changing schedule and shifting shifts when needed. supervisors were friends with all employees but still set boundaries and rules. bought lunch for holidays and snacks at random times.

    Cons

    customers were very difficult at times, HR had too few cashiers in peak hours, and too many during down times. the signs were not always changed with weekly sales which created confusion at check out. some of the floor staff were too lazy and were only there for the pay check.

    Advice to Management

    none

    I worked at Zellers part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people; manager was wonderful; customers were terrific (although there is a rotton apple in every bunch)

    Cons

    Lack of properly working equipment prevented us from doing our jobs quickly and accurately; upper echelon (read: head office) didn't care about us, all they cared about was the bottom line

    Advice to Management

    Too bad you had to sell our souls to Target.
