Not the worst place to work
Fashion Associate (Employé actuel) – Dartmouth, NS – 21 mai 2018
RW & CO.: I like working here in the sense that it is not a high-stress job. Most of the time it's slow, but I do enjoy sales and interacting with customers. The employee discount is nice, but considering that I get paid minimum wage, the stuff is still expensive. I hardly ever buy unless it's from sale anyway. Besides that, I still have not received my shopping pass (it's been six months). The work culture is good, for the most part. But there are always going to be brown nosers. Employees like to post things on forum to embarrass you in front of everyone, rather than wait and talk to you about it in person. One thing I learned is that it doesn't matter how many times you do something perfectly, no one ever notices. However, if you mess up once, you will be blasted. There is a lack of respect between the full-timers and part-timers. The schedule is also a huge problem. Our schedules are Sunday-Saturday. The schedule is emailed out on the Thursday before it starts, and sometimes it's even on Friday. I do not know until two or three days beforehand if I am working, making it extremely difficult to plan anything in advance. And then, they say you have to book time off 7 weeks ahead.
