Manager (Employé actuel) – Rocky view AB – 22 juin 2019
BodyMods was able to help me leave a job that was making me very unhappy and when I started I was given the most thorough training that I’ve experienced and the training has never stopped there. In an industry that’s quickly expanding and changing BodyMods is able to stay on top of everything, I’ve noticed an massive increase in the quality of products as well as the appeal of them in the short time I’ve been with the company. They took a chance on me as a Manager and with their support and acceptance I’ve been able to build my skills immensely and lead my team with absolute confidence. There’s a lot of hands on work and a lot of chances to work with people several positions ahead of you which in turn expands your knowledge and respect for the company as a whole. I’ve learned so much and had such a positive experience, I recommend this job for anyone who takes pride in their work and takes it seriously, and anyone who loves to learn in an ever changing environment. We have some of the coolest and most loyal customers who even travel 2+ hours just to shop with us so I’d love to see the company expand into other cities in Alberta as well.
Basically title. I loved working there doing the day to day. The clients are a pretty specific type, and they're almost always chill. You get to have a lot of one on one with each customer which gives you time to be friendly and actually have a chat if they want. I loved my coworkers too, shift change actually became a highlight of the day. But to say that upper management was incompetent would be an understatement. Stock was hard to get and basics were rarely filled. You'd send them a list, and would get a fraction of what you needed back, with no indication if you'd ever get the rest of what you needed. Sales goals were unattainable and we were constantly berated in nice terms for not meeting them. Everytime we tried to bring up why we couldn't make the goals (it's not like you can grab people by the wrist and force them to buy!) We'd be told to not make excuses. I'm not sure why, but someone higher up seemed to have it out for me. When I found out she was insulting me behind my back it was the nail in the coffin. I really wish I could have stayed. I really genuinely enjoyed working there, but the employers were so hostile to me despite me best efforts.
