It's good short term

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
Your coworkers become like family but management only cares about sales and cutting hours to save money. Sometimes you have only one person on the floor running back and forth, trying to help customers while also cleaning and putting out stock. It's a good part time job while looking for something else or if you're trying to get into corporate.

Worse Job I ever had!

I was not given the opportunity to learn new things. They put me on CAT 6 and cash. Everyone else was thoroughly trained. I assume they did this to ensure CAT 6 would get done. I spent 3 years doing this. I was made to feel inclusivity was not meant for me. Management had no qualms about breaking the rules so were poor role Models. Will never work for a Mark’s again.

Poor scheduling, not enough people working

Customers complain a lot when you are running around trying to help everyone. Management doesn’t hire enough people or schedule enough people. Lots of times there’s only 2 or 3 people working. Thieves come in and steal the boots and management thinks you are to blame when you were tied up helping customers.

Points positifs

Get paid

Points négatifs

Hours cut, bad managers

Ancient corporate work processes and stressful work environment

The corporate office has a highly imbalanced work allocation. While some departments are overworked, others are under utilized. Managers have low EQ and sometimes inexperienced in the departments they lead. The only silver lining is that it’s backed by Canadian Tire.

Points positifs

Rrsp matching

Points négatifs

High stress work environment

Very nice environment within the store. Excellent team.

I enjoyed my time at Marks. The store staff at Sunridge are excellent. Friendly, accepting and supportive. Commonly a busy place to be but quiet times allow for getting other things done. The hardest part of the job is that many returns are accepted at store level. This can add to stress at cashier level for many reasons. They have a very lenient return policy.

Points positifs

Staff discount. Personal shopping allowance. Team work.

Points négatifs

Hard on the feet.

It a job for people who want to get out of hte house or get good employee discounts.

A day at work- I wish we had 4 hr shifts? Learned a lot about the culture at Mark's. Management was a glorified Clerk. Hardest part of the job was folding and standing. I always like knowing some about my peeps I work with.

Not the best

I personally wouldn't recommend working for the company. Although one good thing I have to say is that they are very accommodating with your school schedule. On the other hand, they're very heavy on favoritism. It's very hard to climb the ladder with the company. If you're looking for a casual summer job it's decent.

Undergoing Change

Mark's (owned by Canadian Tire) is a company undergoing a lot of internal changes to continue their success. This is an evolving company so there is a strong need to be flexible and positive while these changes occur. This company is good to their staff and really care about work-life balance. There is a strong focus on mental well-being and plenty of room for advancement.

Great starting point.

There is a lot of complacency within the different department branches. People are promoted based on how likeable they are and often do not have the required skills to do their job.

Enjoyable place to work

I really enjoyed working at Marks, like any business it is not perfect and has some hard customers to deal with. It is fast paced and usually has something new to everyday. There is lots to learn there and great discount opportunities. I would definitely work there again

Great workplace.

Everyone in your Mark’s just wants to see you succeed. They’re patient, understanding and willing to help you be the best employee possible. Duties you will have are tagging merchandise, keeping up your department, cashier help, re-stocking, customer phone service/store service for hold items, end of shift cleaning duties (washrooms, store mop/sweep, garbages). I suggest if you are applying to a location in Calgary try to get a job at the Deerfoot Meadows location.

N/a

It's an okay retail jobs when you're young but definitely a labour intensive job - lots of moving and such of products from warehouse to sales floor. Decent part time job.

Run of the mill retail job (Nothing special)

I had poor management at my store, constantly between new bosses every few months, and almost no benefits working there as a part time. Other than that it was a pretty standard retail job

Points négatifs

Management

Fun workplace, terrible hours

Only something for high school students, if you're trying to advance in the company it will take an extremely long period of time. The pay is terrible - they do yearly reviews but low-non existent raises.

Points positifs

Co-workers are wonderful

Points négatifs

Company itself

Fun place to work, amazing people and management

Marks has been the best place to work at for me. I have made lifelong friends and have improved not only my product knowledge but the way I speak and deal with customers. It truly is an amazing place to have a career if you are looking for a base pay job!

Points positifs

great staff, good discount

Points négatifs

not a lot of hours

Fun Atmosphere but No Room for Advancement

Working at Mark's was an enjoyable time, however store management was powerless and could do nothinf to aid good workers or be rid of bad ones. Absolutely no room for advancement.

horrible

I worked at the crowfoot marks for some time and the management is by far the worst I have ever had. Bulling and gossip was common for the 45 year old manager. She is terrible to her employees. I never send people there way, even though the clothes are wonderful.

Points positifs

nothing

Points négatifs

the manager

Fun place to work with good staff

A typical day goes as follows: usually you have a few tasks to finish such as pulling out a new product, repricing items in sale or clearance season but you’ll have to learn to balance all your tasks as well as help customers periodically and clean up any messes you come by. The people you work with are usually pretty great, all ages from high school students to people who are about to leave the workforce, it’s a laid back environment with easy dress code. The customers are one of the best parts about the job, obviously you’ll get a difficult person to please every once in awhile but you’ll end up getting a lot of regulars who are just happy for a warm smile and a good deal. The hours are pretty good, although Christmas season can be very busy.

Points positifs

Awesome employee discount, sense of community with coworkers, regular customers

Points négatifs

A lot of product training you might not have time to digest

Not a good company if you aren't in corporate.

Hours within the store is constantly changing(inconsistent). Being a key holder(supervisor/shift leader) isn't worth it -> no insentive (you make the same as everyone else but have a couple more hours) corperate doesn't care about the stores even though that's where the money is being made? No consistency when it comes to policies, they are there to make the customer happy even if it's roadside robbery.

Points positifs

The staff within the stores

Points négatifs

Hours constantly reducing

Changed Management

The Company has changed since Canadian Tire Co. bought it. Work environment was busy and exciting however since Mark's was purchased by Canadian Tire Co., Management changed and overall environment has changed a lot as well, causing employees work over and to have more responsibilities.

Points positifs

Extreme potentials

Points négatifs

Changed Management
