Avis d'employé sur Princess Auto
Usual pitfalls of retail at Princess Auto
Princess Auto is another company that began with good intentions/culture/values, strong work ethic, good core values, and at one time treated its staff with fair wages and good benefits. PA has been a successful company, but unfortunately their core focus has turned to profit, and their culture and values suffer because of it. On the store level, the turnover rate is high because the wages are low and the benefits that the company boasts are only attainable once you get a fulltime position--and they now only hire staff on part time contracts, like many other retailers. The usual mountain of bureaucratic nonsense is alive and well at PA. Employees who didn't do their fair share of work were never reprimanded. Employees who worked hard were passed by for promotion or demoted. The store leader didn't seem to interact much with the floor staff. Most of the floor leaders spent their days hiding out in the cash office. There is little motivation for staff at PA other than a paycheck..and since their hourly rate is so low, most people would be better off somewhere else.

Some good staff members, good benefits if you're lucky enough to qualify
Low pay, long wait times for fulltime, unorganized management, little incentive, little advancement, alot of poorly motivated staff, high turnover
Princess Auto is much more than I thought of when I first got hired. They are a very family oriented, for the people, type of business. They give you a lot of benefits when you are full time, profit sharing and we get a lot of Holiday off other business do not.
The company itself is good to work for. The manager of the moncton nb store would be dangerous if he had 2 clues to rub together!! Doesn’t seem like he cares about anyone but himself. We had a really good team but because of him the majority of them left. Not sure how he got the job but I’d like to know his secret. He definitely doesn’t have the proper people skills to manage a store with many employees.
Staff discount, profit sharing, employee parking, free uniforms.
Very poor management, favouritism.
