Lots of favoritism coming from the main boss, no opportunity to advance and awful management. Rarely had the morning meeting like we were scheduled to do, nobody knew what was going on because of the poor communication.
Not much structure, management is poor and lets his employees run over him. They basically dictate to him what they want to do. Some employees are paid way too much for the lack of work they actually do. It's like working with children most of the time.
I enjoy the work i do and really love the roll i play within the organization. Being the store manager means i play a crucial roll in making the team feel like a family. This is important in any work place as you spend so much time at work thought out your life.
Work to pay ratio is terrible. Part time is considered to be 35-42 hours a week. A lot of favouritism by management and very little if any confilict resolution. Work to life ratio is a joke. Expect to work inconsistant hours and pretty much every holiday and weekend. There is no training program. You basically have to fend for yourself, and are expected to know everything in the 3 days that you "train" with someone.
The management for the most part was nice the work with and family can first I enjoyed working there. But a long way to travel to get to work even in the winter time but I was able to make it every time.
I absolutely enjoyed my time working at Peavey Mart. The staff there was excellent and very knowledgeable. I gained a lot of knowledge from the staff as well as the customers. Also a great place to keep busy with lots of things to do.

The General Manager at Peavey Mart in Camrose, Alberta is an arrogant and bullying individual; clearly he has personal issues that should be dealt with on his own time and not take it out on staff and sometimes customers! Everyone is afraid to lose their jobs so they don't say anything, but many have quit because of him...other than that it's a nice store with good people working there...get rid of him and the stress will be gone!
I worked at Peavey Mart for almost 2 years and it was a great, fun place to work until they hired all new management and they laid off most of the employees who have been their a long time and rehired all new staff.
Great First job for students. They have a little bit of everything so you receive a variety of experience of a retail store. Friendly staff and fairly reasonable working with school schedules or other part-time jobs.
