Avis d'employé sur Roots
Unfortunately, there's more cons to it
Schedules are always late. When you say you can't work on a specific day of the week, they still have the nerve to call you on that day to come in. Some employees take time off without a valid excuse. There are favourites (even if the another person worked harder). Employees are non-sympathetic at whatever you are going through in life. SOME of the management has a negative attitude towards some sales associates and should work on that (eye rolls, sighs, unpleased facial expression, lazy body posture), that really affects the workers' performance y'know? (you need to set a good example for others) Some employees steal sales, so instead of putting your name for the transaction, they put theirs or sometimes whoever helped the customer the least (affects the accuracy of your sales and you sometimes get in trouble for it lol). Workers slack off, some even go home due to being "sick" when it really just looks like they just don't want to work or some just chill out at the back office to pass time or some take longer breaks rather than 30 minutes. If they were to ever call you in to cover someone's shift they would expect you to be there in like 5 minutes when you live 20 minutes away. When somebody doesn't do their job at all, it is passed onto someone else when that person really could've done it themselves. Management just doesn't appreciate their workers at all, no matter how hard you work. The back room is total chaos, boxes all over, metal pieces sticking out everywhere (can cause injury), shoes boxes are left on the ground sometimes, there's no space for worker to - plus...

Management, environment, dealing with people
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.
discount, some staff are friendly
pretty much everything else, MANAGEMENT
Roots was a great company that treated me well and was very accommodating twords school that I was attending at the time. They never over scheduled me so that I wouldn't be able to keep up with my school work and always made sure the days I had worked around my education.
Amazing staff to work with
few employees for the busy parts of the year
