    No opinion of CEO

    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.

    Pros

    Great environment, the pay is decent, and benefits are great as well.

    Shifts start to die down after Christmas season so don't expect to get the desired hours you want. Also depends on which location you work at.
