    I worked at Roots Canada part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You meet a lot of great people who are both coworkers and customers. The brand does the selling for itself and there is no commission based incentives. You get discounts on the comfiest clothing and great leather products.

    Cons

    The power trips are abundant from management. Moving up in the company is almost solely based on who you know/how much they like you vs. actually being good at the job.

    Advice to Management

    Care for your employees, even if they are just 1-2 month seasonal staff.

    I have been working at Roots Canada part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I get paid $13.50 which is way better than the Virginia minimum wage of 7.50. I get 50% off everything which is great. I work with other college students so it's fun.

    Cons

    There's no benefits for part time workers. We can't use the discount online.
