    I have been working at Hudson's Bay full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, happy and friendly work environment where management encourages you have an entrepreneurial spirit, company truly allows you to go above and beyond for your clients and forge client relationships.

    Cons

    Work long hours and sometimes 6-7 days at a time. Benefits are terrible. High pressure to make unrealistic sales and credit card goals. Discount is only given on certain brands and you are forced to open a credit card in order to take advantage of employee discount... which feels very predatory. You are also then forced to pay interest on your employee purchases.

    Advice to Management

    Working six-seven days in a row is brutal. They should review the discount policy and ease up on the pressure to open credit cards.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hudson's Bay (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I had a 30 min, rather positive meeting with the recruiter, asked for salary requirements and was happy with what I asked for. He wanted me to come back in and speak to VP and Director within a week. Showed me the beautiful office space and said they'd get in touch with possible meeting times. Never got back in touch, I tried contacting them and did not receive a reply.
