    I worked at Roots Canada full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Company discount is fantastic, 50% on just about everything in the store - Get to wear Roots Hoodys and Sweatpants to work, easily the best part of the job - Laidback culture compared to other companies - Much of the product sold in the store is still made in Canada - Compared to other retailers, customers that shop at Roots are great

    Cons

    - Company sometimes sets outrageous sales goals, even on the typically slower traffic days of the week. staff are often expected to be on top of every single customer that comes into the store and to make sure every single customer that comes into the store to browse, leaves with a purchase. Be prepared, if management notices your sales are not meeting daily targets, you will have to answer for that and it may lead you to being written up - at times, there is lack or no transparency what so ever and sometimes upper management isn't always honest or doesn't communicate - Head office, DMs and other Managers often play favouritism which can create a lot of politics and gets in the way of decisions. - Compared to a lot of other retailers, this company is often disorganized, changing their minds on a dime on operational decisions for example - These guys will try to underpay you even if you come with a lot of retail experience
