Sales Associate
Sales Associate (Ancien employé) –  Newmarket, ON7 juin 2019
I would not recommend working here. As an employee you are constantly on call and only told at the very last minute if you are working or not. In addition to this the hours you are told that you will be there for are almost always extended through the night- sometimes working til 1am onwards when sceduled to be off at 10pm. You do not get breaks and are on the floor for eight plus hours while your back is breaking and you are hungry.

My Experience working at Roots
Sales Associate (Ancien employé) –  Bloor and Yonge23 mai 2019
A typical day of work would be clocking into the shift system and receiving a task of responsibilities from the weekly Managers.

What I learned at the management is to coordinate Roots clothing under categories like ,styles, price and comfort.

The management had lots of disorganization, miscommunication.
The workplace culture is geared to youth, millennial's and families.

The hardest part of the job would be to fulfill the workplace demands and expectations of all the executive managers and assistants.

The most enjoyable parts of the job would be the ability to work with people from different parts of the world and backgrounds.
Points positifs
Free lunch
Points négatifs
Short hours, Highly Competitive, Low Pay, No health benefits

Management
Sales Associate (Employé actuel) –  Toronto, ON9 mai 2019
The management is very unprofessional and doesn't follow the OHS accordingly. Staff does not get many hours (more employees than hours to give) as they continue to hire more.

Amazing atmosphere
Sales Associate (Employé actuel) –  Toronto, ON8 mai 2019
When I attend work,I would get a prep talk which talks about goals of your shift and amount of money we should be making. Mostly my task would be on cash, cashing out people placing orders for customers online. Greeting customers when they come into the store. Management is super friendly and open minded. I have learned many things from how to open a box of shipment to how to order something for a customer, call customers when there order has arrived in store.

Management was WHACK
Sales Associate (Employé actuel) –  Halton Hills, ON12 avril 2019
I’ve worked a good amount of retail jobs and this was by far the worst place I’ve worked at. Management had nothing better to do than to gossip, whoever was put on cash would often take your sale, the main manager simply couldn’t handle the tpo traffic; was constantly annoyed, angry and did not motivate her employees. Management was beyond unprofessional. Only thing I liked about this place was the discount.

good discount

awful
Sales Associate (Ancien employé) –  Saint John, NB12 avril 2019
They expect way too much out of their employees and do not care for part-timers. always really slow and the store had no cameras or working alarms. Management was very unreasonable and always looked for someone else to blame for their own mistakes. i loved it at first but grew to dislike it within a week. always looking for part time workers because they always quit. unless you are a manager its not worth the job.
Points positifs
money
Points négatifs

Typical retail
Sales Associate (Employé actuel) –  Toronto, ON28 mars 2019
Typical retail: high priced items mean the less money made is the less hours available for associates. Making targets are important for stable hours to occur.
Points positifs
Discount is 50% on all items, all stores
Points négatifs
Heavy shift cuts if store is dead

Utterly Disappointing
Sales Associate (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB26 mars 2019
Management at the Crossiron location (Where I worked so I can't speak for all locations in Calgary) was totally incapable of anything but gossip and being lazy. They constantly wait for the main manager to go home for the day and then proceed to sit in the back storage area. If they weren't back there they would just talk and not work at the cash desk instead while the associates manned all the zones. On top of this, the amount of gossip that takes place at that store is astronomically bad, and you feel like a piece of garbage when you realize other people have been lying about you to get farther in the company. Other employees only sit on cash all day and steal sales to make themselves look better to the higher-ups so they don't get into trouble for constant low sales. Even though there is no commission you get tracked on sales and someone taking it can mean you being fired.

Other than the discount Roots gives there isn't much else positive about. I'm not saying everyone that works there is a terrible person, but management makes the experience an utter nightmare. Do not work at the Crossiron location if you want to keep your sanity.
Points positifs
discount, some staff are friendly
Points négatifs
pretty much everything else, MANAGEMENT

Great place to work while you are in school and you receive a good discount as well (50%)
Sales Associate (Employé actuel) –  North York, ON12 mars 2019
Roots has been by far my favourite company to work for while I was in High-School. Like most retail jobs, it pays minimum wage as an associate but with a couple of years experience, there is room for advancement. The team I work with was overall amazing and we treat one another like family. The only downside is that you can end up with as little as 3 hours a week at certain times throughout the year which makes it very hard to support yourself with this job alone.
Points positifs
50% discount, friendly staff
Points négatifs
lack of hours
