    I have been working at Mark's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large, Canadian organization! Low turnover at Store Mgr Level and above! Good products with good innovation. Company is definitely trying to move into the current century

    Cons

    Disorganized method of doing business, Respect for People- has left the building!, No one ever talks about sales!!!???? Absent leadership from the Regional VP levels.... "ignore it and it will go away" seems to be the mindset. People need to see PEOPLE!

    Advice to Management

    DM's visit stores, regularly. AVP's don't. Not sure why this is allowed? Get out of the office and speak to the people who can give valuable information regarding your business trends, customer feedback, and give these people some recognition...

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mark's in June 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview first. Asked me why I wanted to work at Mark's, why I left my previous job, etc. Short in-person interview. Again, asked why I wanted to work there, my availability, how far away I lived. Easy and casual.

    EDGE of Fall Fashion Photos - EDGE

    I noticed your outfit. And I was wondering why you decided to wear this today? It's an outfit I wear a lot because I get lazy in the morning, so technically these tights are supposed to go higher, but I think they look cuter, if it looks like they're knee socks because knee socks don't stay on my legs, they just fall and I like the sweater because it's big and that's kind of fall, I guess?
