Avis d'employé sur Mark's
Terrible Work Environment
I worked as Sales Person in Saskatoon.The level of favouritism and discrimination at this particular store was off the chain.It was so bold that anyone could see it.I am still considering filing a formal complaint against the company,that way even if i loose the case, at least it will go on file that someone brought the issue to light. The pay was close to minimum wage.The company decided to only pay sales bonus to the management team while the sales people worked for minimum wage and nothing more.It was so hilarious when managers would go around trying to push employees to push sales so they can reap the bonus.I mean,who in their right mind would work so hard so someone else can reap the benefits?A poor decision on the part of the company. After working hard for the company for years,i realised there was no reward or incentive to keep being the best employee.So i did what i had watched other previous employees do before they quit. I started arriving late regularly and literally doing very little during my shift.No folding clothes,no cleaning,just walking around.This specific manager transformed me from being the best employee to being the worst.She sure worked hard to bring the worst out of me. lol. I would recommend this specific store to anyone who is lazy.There were lazy employees who everyone complained of but they kept on getting promotions because of favouritism then there were hard working employees like me who upon realising that there was no reward for their hard work, intentionally became lazy but we still got away with it.Overall A good place to unleash your - plus...

Management was the reason I gave my notice at Marks!! Enjoyed my coworkers, loved the customers & was learning lots of skills at time went on. The just needed to get rid of management at store level & regional level.
Great coworkers, enjoyed the customers & liked the job.
Mark’s is a great place to work if you really like Retail. I enjoy working at Mark’s. Your co-worker’s and Management is friendly. There is no such thing as a typical day at work. I see all different cultures and assist them the best I can with whatever they need and if I don’t know the answer for something I ask my Manager for assistance.
The job started of great. Now it's like the entire stores capability of running is on my shoulders. It's constantly get MasterCard. Get donations. Get emails. Watch people to make sure they're not shoplifting, like. Stare at everyone's shoes when they walk in and leave. Mark down how many emails you get, how many opt in for marketing. If you don't do good at these tasks youre shamed as they put this info in a weekly communication. Pressure is put on you to get TMCs when keyholders and management are "too uncomfortable" to do it themselves. The only incentive is $20 if you manage to get them to sign up and use it withing 30 days but everyone who shops at marks has shopped there for years and already has it or doesn't want it. Management makes passive aggressive remarks and leaves passive aggressive notes about these goals and they will stand near the cash pretending to do something while eavesdropping. I was basically in charge of TMC without the title and raise (someone else was given that and I've never once saw them talk about the MasterCard) Not to mention each customer has to go through 5 min or rigorous questioning starting off normal with "did you find what you were looking for today" Then "reinforcing the sale" that item has *insert feature* so it's a great choice Would you like to help get kids into sport who can't afford it? Do you have a CT money card? If yes: are you enjoying the benefits? Such as *insert benefits* you could get *insert MasterCard* benefits if you upgrade to the TMCIf no: if you got the CT points card you could collect at *insert stores* I - plus...
