    I worked at Zellers part-time

    Pros

    Good location, good management. A good place to work as a summer student. I would not want to work there permanently.

    Cons

    Overall a good place to work part-time, but sometimes I had to help in other areas and I ended up staying overtime. I would not want to work there permanently.

    Advice to Management

    Zellers had good management at the time I worked there. I really can not think of anything they could have done better.

    I worked at Zellers full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wages that were appropriate for the position.
    Good clean work environment.
    Equipment available to do your job.
    Hours were available when needed.

    Cons

    Poor HR management, the wrong people were constantly hired and left. New people were being hired and the core experienced staff were picking up the slack.

    Poor store management. No coaching was available to staff that needed it. Many managers and supervisors were not doing their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Relaunch the Zellers chain as Walmart really has no real competition in Canada. Use the Target Canada failure as a guide to not making the same mistakes.
