    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Garage for more than a year

    Pros

    You get a really great discount and the opportunity to bonus on a monthly, quarterly, and yearly basis.

    Cons

    Little to no communication or interaction with your superiors outside of store level; Superiors only seek the opinions and feelings of Store Manager. Its almost like no one else in management's opinion is valid. No room to coach upward or voice concerns validly.

    Advice to Management

    Support ALL of your MTeam members, not just your store managers or company vets, you will lose potential company vets by treating them as if they do not matter.

      I have been working at Garage full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Bonus pay to managers and sales associates when goal is reached for the month. 50% off Clothing Promotes within company Offers to pay $300 for education Health insurance for full time employees

      Cons

      Company expects you to run around and do everything with only 2 people working. They care about profit and wage cost more than exhausting their employees. Very little pay for managers who run around and do everything. Minimum wage went up $2 in my county sales associates got a raise and management didn’t. Resulting in management only making $2 more than them vs $5-7 more for all our hard work. The district manager,...

      Advice to Management

      Corporate needs to talk to their employees and get rid of the cruel district managers that are in charge. If a survey was taken every employee would agree on how they are being treated.

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Garage for more than a year

      Pros

      Fun products and fun sales associates.

      Cons

      Management is disrespectful and the managers that I worked alongside were resentful of my presence. Their manager hired me without offering them my position. As a result there was a lot of animosity and people not showing up or on time for work. Also, many tasks were neglected and blame was spread around instead of taking ownership.

      Advice to Management

      Team build, coach and retrain from a corporate level. Monitor and follow-up/follow through. If no definitive results, clean house.

      Advice to Management

      this company will continue to make money bc the clothes are cute and at a good price but will struggle with high turn over rates and will never be able to maintain quality workers until upper management and head office realizes that their lack of cohesive communication, unrealistic expectations and lack of care for the well being of their employees creates an extremely discouraging and sad work life.

      Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Burlington, ON

      I have been working at Garage

      Pros

      lots of benefits for part time employees, not so much for managers. However manager are not expected to work more then 4o hours. They like when you do but you don't have to

      Cons

      they expect way to much for managers and they do not give clear and timely direction to allow you to succeed. Never allowed to take weekends off and they have a lot of black out periods
