Former Employee - Stock Clerk in Pickering, ON (Canada)
Former Employee - Stock Clerk in Pickering, ON (Canada)
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

It's a comfortable pace, you get to work around a music minded environment, helping people find the newest Celine Dion album is ultra rewarding.

Cons

Minimum wage jobs suck. You are in a busy mall over the holidays earning only enough money to get yourself home on the bus and if lucky a meal while you are there.

Advice to Management

Keep on doing what you do... taking advantage of consumers with your overpriced, outdated technology.

    Current Employee - Store Manager in London, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Store Manager in London, England (UK)
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great atmosphere as well as great people. Good working environment, OK staff discounts. Working in London makes it quite a social hub too.

    Cons

    Some bad management at times, not enough staff discount, can't really say much more, there's no more negatives that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff more. Communication within the group should be a hell of a lot more transport, we should also have more head office meetings.
