    I worked at Canada Goose full-time

    Pros

    - You can work with other colleagues from diversity backgrounds. - Basic salary is high enough.

    Cons

    - Management team is the worst that I have ever work with. They sacked people by their preference instead of a convincing reason. - Commission schemed couldn’t drive the team to maximum the sales. The retail team isn’t treated well by the company.

    Advice to Management

    Head office should find other people to manage the flag ship store.

Targets were between 6,000$-15,000$...
